“Mecklenburgh Inn is Fab******* !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

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.

Room Tip: Saddle Room faces the post office. If you are an early riser (3-5am) pick this room. If not - avoid...

My wife and I just got back from staying two nights at the Mecklenburgh Inn. I chose it based on the reviews and we weren't disappointed. Highlights of our stay included sitting on the second floor balcony having tea while the rain poured down. But what I want to add to all the favourable comments is one on the attention to detail. There were lots of lamps in our room. There were ample toiletries, even toothbrushes. There was a night light in the bathroom. There was a candle with matches. Thank you suzie for a wonderful time.

Just back from a relaxing trip to Chester and area. Stayed at the Mecklenburg Inn and once again throughly enjoyed Suzie's company (the owner), the cleaniness of the rooms and the delicious breakfast the next day. My wife and I found this laid back Inn several years ago by fluke and have returned each year since just for the enjoyment we get from dropping in. The rooms are very clean, the deck overlooking the street is relaxing, the beds are comfortable and the waterfront is just a stroll away. I can easily recommend the Mecklenburg as a place to drop in and lay your head.

We stayed 1 night as part of a whirlwind tour of the Maritimes, and Mecklenburgh Inn was a last-minute choice, recommended to us by local friends so we knew going in it would be nice. Having stayed, we'd now recommend the Inn to anyone.
Great hostess! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is good, and Chester is a super town to visit.
Upsides - very pleasant and interesting owner, interesting house, lovely room.
Downsides - hmmm, maybe none...

To say this is the very first time i have bothered to write a review of a place is enough in itself I hope. The mecklenburgh is a wonderful place to stay. They have thought of everything, the rooms are beautifully decorated, the bathrooms fully equipped, and just so clean. Suzi, the owner has really thought of everything, from scented sachets in your drawers to wonderful chocolate truffles in your room. The breakfasts were wonderful, different and exciting every day. I work as a chef, and I wantedto stay longer to sample more! You must try the home-made cookies. Honestly, this is one of the most thoughtful and best quality bed and breakfasts I have stayed in. Thank you Suzi

Large spacious room, walk anywhere in town, the owner is very friendly and a top notch chef. This small hotel is a wonderful place to stay. Pillow top mattress was the most comfortable bed I ever slept in after my own.
