"The first impression....Pretty, light filled home beautifully appointed with an eclectic mix of antique and modern furnishings...But, it is the view that draws you. Nothing short of gorgeous..sitting high above the cove, surrounded by forest, a few sailboats moored nearby, the water glass-like calm. The effect? Instant serenity.
My family and I spent a week at Deep Cove. I appreciated the owner, Janet's obvious fine taste in furnishings but also the fact that the house was immaculate! Good linens, comfortable beds, clean and above average (marble!) bathrooms. A vase of fresh flowers and candles too!
My husband, who is the real cook in the family said the kitchen was the best he had seen in a vacation home and we have been renting for twenty years! Very well stocked with good quality dishes, cutlery, knives and pots and pans, all of which made our dinners a pleasure to prepare.
The expansive screened in porch is the real treasure here. We used it to sit in the sun and savour morning coffee and at night, candlelit, with a good bottle of wine spent hours enjoying the air and just chatting.
This is a very restful place. And although you do have to drive to other spots such as the town of Chester for supplies, it is a mere 15 minute trip. Bayswater, a lovely sandy beach is just twenty minutes away. And the wonderful towns of Lunenburg (World heritage site...wear your walking shoes for the hills!, Home of the famed Bluenose sailboat) and Mahone Bay, even Halifax are less than an hour away.
Janet is also a pleasure to deal with; kind enough to give us information that only a local would know.
We truly hope to return one day. Thanks to you Janet for sharing your special place."

"The Bella Vista Cottage was awesome. As soon as we walked into this home, we knew we would love our time here. The cottage had upscale furnishings, including a nice size flat screen TV, a very comfortable sofa, fast internet service, and most importantly, a magnificent view. That view was the best place we have ever stayed and came with a large sail boat anchored right out in front of the cottage. We felt very comfortable and safe in this little community of homes. The Cottage had excellent linens and appliances. The showers were a delight to use…very roomy and easy to maintain. Needless to say, there was more than enough space since there were only 2 of us. But it would be very comfortable for 6 people, including teens or two couples. We enjoyed exploring Chester and found the Fo’c’sle restaurant food very good. We also used the gas grill at the Cottage. If you rent this place, you will not be disappointed."

"This house was everything we wanted for a great vacation lots of room inside and out. Very clean, comfortable, great fireplace, big comfy living room and kitchen to mention a few, a porch in front and great private side deck plus a wonderful stream in the woods with a deck and fire pit to enjoy, picnic, BBQ or just relax and read a book (there was a nice selection). Oh and the beds were really comfy. Right off a main road but with a long driveway so you were not bothered by road noise, lovely grounds to enjoy and play. Also just a mile from Chester and easy to get to all places from there whether Lunenberg or Halifax, very accessible to great restaurants, stores and fun. The owners (really nice people) gave us great info on things to do with lots of pamphlets from all over, whale watching, farmers markets, beaches, coves nearby and far, light houses and Bay of Fundy, museums and all. We really enjoyed our stay and would come back again at any time. Great place for a family or a group of friends lots of privacy but very accessible to all of the beauty of NS."

"So much character to this lovely property. The decor is amazing and it was well stocked with anything we could need. No need to buy things like spices or flour or any of those other staples that you hate to have to buy when vacationing. The property manager was by regularly to check on us and the entire transaction overall was excellent. We already plan to return again. My husband and I are from Nova Scotia but had not spent much time in Chester. We brought our friends and their young child. There was something to do for everyone. The bike paths and community pool were enjoyed immensely."
