Suzi Fraser, proprietor at Mecklenburgh Inn, made my one-night stay in Chester comfortable and very relaxed. Her experience as a yacht cook in the off season serves her well as chief cook & bottle washer here-- had the yummiest Monte Cristo for breakfast! Clean, casual 19th c. home. Walk to harbor and shops. Suzi made calls to find accommodations for... More

Five beautiful days in Chester, always happy to come back "home" every evening! Great breakfasts, no two the same during our stay. Met with interesting folks, some of them return customers... which is the best reference!

Very comfortable & historic B&B run by Suzi the owner. We had a lovely shabby-chic suite that fit our needs perfectly. Oh so comfortable bed - did not want to get up! Great breakfast. Picturesque little town that simple words cannot describe. Citizens of this enclave are extremely friendly & accomodating. Do visit!

I was coming to Chester for a small solo bike tour and stayed at this B&B. The service was great! Beds were comfy and rooms are cute. Breakfast in the morning was excellent! Suzi, the owner, was laid-back and knowledgeable about the area and helpful to folks that were staying longer. She accommodated my bike while I was there. The... More

We enjoyed the hospitality and ambience of the Mecklenburgh Inn 14 years ago. It was lovely, so we decided to repeat the experience 14 years later and are glad we did. Very comfortable, clean rooms, a relaxed host and a delightful breakfast. Suzi is celebrating 25 years in the B & B business; she must know something about it! Chester... More

The delightful owner, Suzi, offers a first class breakfast and abundant local knowledge. The Inn retains its historical authenticity, while the rooms are bright and airy, with exquisite bedding and many other thoughtful extras. Suzi's extensive travels are reflected in the interesting and... More

After almost 10 years of annual stays, staying at "the Meck" is like staying at a friend's place, but that exceptional level of service is offered to everyone, not just regulars. If you are travelling anywhere on the South shore, press on to Chester and stay with Suzi and Jet. Highly recommended.
