  • A Sweetheart of a Place

    "Far Far Away Guesthouse is comfortable, cozy and uniquely styled- we enjoyed the decor and artwork. Jay was sweet to leave us a card and bottle of wine as I mentioned it was our anniversary. He was easy to communicate with, very laid back, and overall the perfect host. The cottage is well stocked with extras and some basic food supplies- coffee, sugar, etc, so there is very little one would need to run to the store to get. Close to Mahone Bay (Mug & Anchor restaurant, Jennifer's Bakery are MUSTS) and Chester Basin, (The Galley was wonderful/romantic). The Chester Connector trail goes over the Gold River and along the old train route- we found the area breathtaking. The beauty of this spot is it's out-of-the-way location, while being close to everything one comes to Nova Scotia to see. Caveats: The bathroom is quite cramped, but we managed. The water pump was so loud I didn't wish to flush the toilet or take an early morning shower because I didn't wish to awaken my partner. But I wouldn't hestitate to come back to visit again- I'd just bring earplugs for my honey. It fit with our style of traveling- a base camp for our explorations. It's less than an hour from Ross Farm Museum up Route 12, Martock (OnTree Park) up route 14 and Halifax, up highway 103."

  • Fantastic!

    "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."

  • great quiet location - cozy well appointed cottage.

    "If you're looking for a great little cottage in the heart of Chester, this is it. A short walk to the water, the kids can swim in the community pool, grab an ice cream and watch the sailboats rolling by. Perfectly maintained, there is a nice big backyard and a deck with bbq. This is a great house for a family to experience all that Chester has to offer."

  • Fabulous place to stay

    "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."
