“My idea of what a B&B should be”
Reviewed August 20, 2010

Great food, convivial atmosphere, historic house in an excellent location. Even the smallest of the several rooms is quite comfortable. This is a fine spot to use as a base to explore this segment of the South Shore. Have to say, it made our trip. Great job, Suzi Fraser!

The Mecklenburgh Inn has bright victorian rooms with ALL the modern conveniences you can't live without. Suzy, your innkeeper, has done the inn's restoration so that it has all the comforts of home..plus her gourmet breakfast is to die for!! We were spoiled for the rest of our trip!!

This is a great character century inn in a neat little town with an owner who makes the most amazing pancakes I have ever tasted. I'm not a big fan of pancakes but I didn't even put Syrup on these. I would be happy to live here. A great collection of quilts, the little shops and when one of the other guests asked a question about the type of fish caught in a particular lake in Cape Breton, the host said her mum and dad spent a lot of time in that area and called them up to ask. Don't miss this place.

If you're in the Chester area, this is a great place to stay. Rooms are charming and full of character. Suzy is a great hostess - very laid back and makes you feel completely at home. Only negative was that if you stay in the winter room, the postal delivery truck will rudely awake you at 4:00 A.M. Walking distance to everything.

  • Liked — ambience and the owner

I spent two wonderful nights here, in the "Miss Finnegan's Hat" room.
The food was amazing, the bed super comfortable.
Owner (and Cordon Bleu chef) Suzi is awesome, so friendly, and easy to talk to... and an amazing decorator! The inn is an old house in Chester, and it's filled to the rafters with all kinds of neat stuff. There's antiques and old quilts and hooked rugs everywhere you look. Even my partner loved the decor, and he's not one to notice that kind of thing.
The inn feels so friendly and welcoming.
It's also close to to Mahone Bay, Lunenburg, and Peggy's Cove, and of course, Chester is a lovely little place.
I just can't say enough good things about this place.

  • Liked — The decor... no, the food... no, Suzi... I can't decide.

Yes, yes, yes - This is about as good as it gets. Better than going to Grandma's or Aunt Agatha's country place. Probably the most relaxing time I have ever had. Mecklenburgh is much more than your home away from home. It is far better. You quickly realize that this is going to be something different when you notice that the main entrance door doesn't have a lock. Located in Chester - a small but truly vibrant town with good reataurants and plenty of spots to see if you just want to wander. Of course not far from all the well known towns, beaches and tourist areas, Peggy's cove, Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, etc etc Don't miss Ross Farm Museum, about twenty minutes away. Great especially for kids. I did miss the ferry trip to Big Tancook island, 6 miles off shore, Less than 200 inhabitants, living in their own fabulous world. Next trip for sure.

  • Liked — Friendly atmosphere - great breakfasts.
  • Disliked — Nothing really - couldn't stay longer
  • Tips/Secrets — You won't be disappointed - great place to get away from it all
