We arrived at the Mecklenburgh Inn without a reservation - Suzi leaves a phone balanced on a music stand at the front door (which is always open). Written on a piece of paper is her phone # with instructions to call her if you need her. I did. Suzi showed us the Saddle Room - perfect - we stayed 2 nites.
A couple of things immediately resonated with me: door never locked (I wish this was the way of the world), a completely relaxed environment, homemade COOKIES in the tin in the sitting room, lots of books, games and CURRENT magazines. A great mix of old world sensibilities with 21st century requirements (Wi-Fi of course).
This is a phenomenally comfortable B n B: open, gracious, unique, clean, comes with a bike and lots of private sitting areas, good location. Parking abundant, pub down the hill (Fo'c'sle ), Rope Loft down the other side of the hill, liquor store nearby, Anglican church sort of kitty corner with a great grouping of ancient headstones out the back, Chester Yacht Club a massive 300 yard drive toward the sea. I can imagine this is the center of the universe from July to August.
Breakfast is from 0800-0900. Eat everything. Hearty coffee. The cat's name is Jetstream.
