“Feels like home..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2011

For our honeymoon my husband and I couldn't think of a better place to spend our days then the South Shore of Nova Scotia. Our first night we stayed at the Gray Gables B&B, and I must say for our very first B&B experience this one took the cake. It was easy to find this beautifully appointed gray victorian, with wrap around patio. As we pulled up we couldn't wait to get inside and see what awaited us. When we came in the door we were greeted by Jacqui one of Gray Gables owners; as soon as we stepped foot in the door she immediately made us feel comfortable and right at home. The house seemed newly renovated and very spacious, the room we rented was exactly as pictured on the site. We took the Mermaid Room with the jacuzzi and added the romance package, which was well worth it. Before we went out to explore Chester Jacqui gave us a piece of paper which had three choices for breakfast. I picked the blueberry pancakes and my husband chose the yougurt with berries and granola. We met 4 wonderful people who were also staying there and during breakfast exchanged stories and the best places to visit on the South Shore. Breakfast was delicious, and we are already planning to go back :)

Thanks for making our honeymoon one to remember :)

This is one of the nicest B & B's we have ever stayed in, the rooms were beautifuly appointed, comfortable and very clean. The breakfast choices were all delicious and Jacqui's company for coffee was delightful. Her help with tourist attractions and restaurants was greatly appreciated.We will definetly return one day.

My son and I recently took a road trip around Cape Breton and down the Eastern Coast of Nova Scotia, staying in B&Bs. The Gray Gables in Chester was one of the very best -- beautifully appointed, friendly and caring host and hostess, on a quiet country road and with a good view of the ocean.

I would highly recommend it.

My 81 year-old Mother and I just completed a scenic road trip through Nova Scotia. She and I have taken many trips together and have stayed in a few dozen bed and breakfasts. Gray Gables is one of the very best. We enjoyed all of it - the beautiful house, the exceptional setting, the rooms, the comfort, the breakfast and the owners. While the house is one of the best we have experienced, the rates were lower than other B&Bs we stayed at on this trip and a lot less than hotels in Halifax. I highly recommend this B&B and wish the owners all the success in their new adventure.

From making the reservations with Jacqui, to our warm welcome upon our arrival, and delicious breakfasts, a beautiful room, gorgeous views, and wonderful hospitality, Gray Gables was a great place to stay while in Chester for our friends' wedding. Our three night stay was relaxing and fun, and Jacqui added that touch of "down east" friendliness and warmth that made it even more pleasant. We would definitely stay at Gray Gables again. Thanks Jacqui, it was a pleasure staying at your B&B and meeting you.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mermaid room - it was ground floor, quiet, spacious, with a nice spa-like bathroom...

My wife and I stayed at Grey Gables B&B on August 27th. Jaqui and Dave were great hosts. We stayed in the Lighthouse room which has a wonderful view of Graves Island and the bay. The bed, room decor, and bath were all top notch. The included breakfast of eggs benedict , crossants and fruit was fantastic. We would highly recommend Grey Gables to our friends and we will be back. Great value for the money!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay at Gray Gables B & B! Our hostess Jacqi was wonderful. The bed was very comfortable, the room was spacious and the made to order breakfast was delicious and plentiful each day. Our room was upstairs and had a beautiful view of the cove. We chose this B & B because of it's central location to the areas in Nova Scotia we wanted to explore and we were very pleased! We would go back and stay tomorrow if we could!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have a beautiful view.
