About Peggy Zock

I have moved back to Nova Scotia after spending 10 years in Vancouver, BC. When I am not in Chester I would be in the UK, Italy, France, Ontario, BC, NB or the NWT.

Peggy Zock purchased this house in 2015

Why Peggy Zock chose Nova Scotia

I love Cape Cod homes with the dormers, and nooks and crannies. Cedar shakes and private yard adds to the charm yet steps from the water and town.

What makes this house unique

Steps to the water and close to town. Private property with new salt-based hot tub. Fully-appointed kitchen and large dining room. Very comfortable furniture and new pillow-top mattresses.

Beautiful home in downtown Chester

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 6 adults had an amazing time. The house itself was very clean, well maintained and tastefully decorated. Very comfortable beds and linens; a well appointed kitchen with all the amenities we needed (and then some); two levels of entertaining space; wireless internet; in a beautiful home nestled in quintessential Chester. Our host replied very promptly and kindly to all my enquiries and I won't hesitate to recommend this spot to anyone in the future as it showed better in person than online.

A local hike (Labrador Castle) is worth the trek and effort as the views of Chester Basin are gorgeous - especially if you can hit it when the leaves are changing (it was mostly brown/green when we went at the end of October). Downtown Chester is quite hilly, but very picturesque and a great athletic challenge for anyone looking to have a cycling or running workout.

Lovely House, Lovely Owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for just under a week at the beginning of October. The house is warm, inviting and within walking distance to many interesting places and amenities. The entire transaction from start to finish was quite easy and we look forward to coming back next year.

Thank you to the owner for the hospitality and accommodation.

A charming place to rest, play and enjoy Nova Scotia hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

First, the town of Chester is beautiful and close to the charming villages along the Atlantic coast in Nova Scotia. Secondly, the house is very nicely done and very accommodating for up to three couples. The amenities are very nice and the house is well maintained and nicely appointed with tasteful, yet unfussy, furnishings. Thirdly, and most importantly, Peggy is very accommodating, responsive and is focused on ensuring her guests are well taken care of during their stay. I highly recommend staying at Peggy's home. Lastly, a shout out to the residents of Chester. They are wonderful, warm and friendly people.

comfortable home in great location

  • 5 of 5

We are traveling with another couple. There was plenty of room on three levels with a nice deck, all in walking distance to the town area. It is centrally located for day trips to many of the must see sites. It was clean and ready for us when we arrived.

3 Bedroom Cape Cod, with a large yard located on a private lane, within steps of the Harbour. A short stroll to Restaurants, shops, convenience store, and a french bakery. Close to Tennis Club, Yacht Club, Curling Rink and Golf Course. Fully-appointed kitchen...a wood-burning stove for chilly evenings; not to mention a salt-based hot tub to take away any unwanted stress. And the "piece-de-resistance"; ironed, laundered sheets. :-)
