Lovely and spotless. A beautiful home.
Wyndrush Heritage home was spacious and very accommodating. It had everything one needed and more. We really enjoyed spending our time there.
Very spacious and tasteful historic home. Well stocked kitchen with an abundance of supplies not typically found in most rentals. Central location for exploring the south shore - easy day trips to Mahone Bay, Lunenburg and Peggy's Cove. The village of Chester has two grocery stores and limited, but fantastic, eating options.
The Wyndrush was great! A beautiful Character home - highly recommended
Shireen’s was kind to offer her home “The Wyndrush” to my fiancé and I along with another couple. There was room for several more people!
The home has lots of character and a great backyard. A fantastic place in a great location. Highly recommended!
Not exactly what we expected
This is a beautifully decorated old home. It has some original features that might not fit with modern tastes, such as a very narrow staircase with a low rail (watch out, kids!). To avoid dissatisfaction, the prospective renter should ask very carefully about proximity to a busy highway, actual configuration and location of the bathrooms, and whether the house is really within reasonable, safe walking distance to the harbor. Also, be advised that there is no air conditioning or shade. There is also a very low light fixture at the kitchen sink that causes head bumps and occasional bad language. This is a relatively new rental (2016) and could maybe use a few tweaks and a bit more accurate description.
A perfect home away from home!
We so enjoyed our stay in Chester and definitely a major part was the wonderful home we stayed in. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. The house is lovely and inviting, with a large kitchen, living room, as well as a tv room. The bedrooms were comfortable and beautifully decorated, as was the entire house. There was enough space for our group of five (included 2 teenagers) to spread out and get some "me" time.
We took advantage of the outdoor spaces, and enjoyed a barbecue as well as sitting out watching the stars at night.
It was situated perfectly for visiting nearby Lunenburg and Peggy's Cove and several
local beaches. Chester is a picturesque little town for browsing stores and enjoying the some nice restaurants.
Great family time!!
