Great accommodations and excellent 2nd storey balcony to enjoy a tea or wine. Nice rooms and lots of space. Breakfast was enjoyable and host was hospitable. Chester's a nice town but not much to see or do here. We just came from Lunenberg full of history and culture so hard to match that experience in Chester.

Oh My Gosh Katherine, you must have started writing this the minute you walked out the door :) I have never received such a long glowing review. Thank you very much.

we ended up in Chester quite by accident and were pleasantly surprised by great places to eat, beautiful homes, wonderful shops and the great hospitality of Suzi.. at the Mecklenburgh Inn... Everything about this place says 'kick back and enjoy yourself'. We spent an entire afternoon on the front balcony chatting with other guests and watching the sites in the... More

Great bed and breakfast, wonderful innkeeper - we had a lovely visit in a very clean establishment with excellent service. The inn is very close to shopping and has lovely walking paths nearby. Chester is located midway between Peggy's cove and lunenburg with fabulous scenic drives along the east coast. Our innkeeper, Suzi, was very welcoming and personable, and very... More

We came across this lovely B&B by chance. We were having lunch in Chester and needed a place for one night. Recommended by the restaurant staff. Lovely room...very charming.....we felt right at home. Suzi cooked up a great breakfast and joined us...very relaxed. Will certainly will stop in again...hopefully next year.

We stayed for 5 nights at this delightful inn to tour Nova Scotia and visit friends. The inn is cosy, clean and welcoming with extremely comfortable beds. The owner Suzy was extremely kind and our breakfasts were a 'tour de force'. We got up every morning eagerly awaiting the day's super surprise that was breakfast. From quesadillas (sp?) to banana...

Delightful room, wonderful innkeeper--don't miss the balcony hammock! All the amenities one could wish for, within short stroll of village and water, and a 5-star breakfast in the morning. Parking, wi fi, sitting room.
