Want the best that Nova Scotia has to offer? Look no further!
My fiancé and I were looking for a nice house to rent in Nova Scotia for our family to visit us during our wedding. After looking at several houses in the Halifax to Lunenburg area, we found a few around Chester. Some were on the water and some were inland. The Chester Garden Home instantly stood out among the choices - so much so, we fell in love with the pictures and the property description! Actually, as you look through the photos here, they do not do this house justice! The attention to detail and the amenities were just a couple of things that really made this place so special for me and my new wife. EVERYTHING is pretty much brand new here! From floors, to paint to appliances to all the tiny little details throughout the home. We were blown away with the beautiful kitchen, the well-appointed bathrooms, the beautifully landscaped property and all those little extras you don't really think about like wifi, dishwasher, ice machine in the fridge and plenty of bedlinens. So even all of that aside, the communication with the owners and follow-up was superb. Very cordial and friendly just like all the people that lived in Chester! Can we stay forever? It was very close to the grocery store, liquor store, a couple of great pubs and of course the scenic ocean front and wharf. Even if you must have your Tim Horton's, they have that too! We were very sad to leave our home away from home in Chester. We have many photos and memories to help remind us of our stay there but its just not the same as actually being there. The price was extremely reasonable too considering it was for the whole week. We will miss you Chester Garden Home!!! - Mike and Melissa.
