Recent Chester reviews

  • Serenity..the only word to describe this place.

    "While this cottage is secluded, feeling like we were a bit 'off the grid' , we found it so convenient to access all amenities that we required such as local grocery stores and restaurants. We used this cottage as our 'home base' while exploring the South Shore of Nova Scotia. The drives to Chester, Mahone Bay, Peggy's Cove, and Lunenburg were pleasurable as the main road for this cottage is right near the Lighthouse Route so maps were not even required.....you just follow the highway. Roads in the area are very well marked for exploring, as well. The cottage itself is very comfortable and clean and it provides everything that you probably need, including internet service and washer and dryer. The best feature was the main bedroom that consists of 2 walls of windows that overlooks the water. It was so peaceful.....it really was hard to leave everyday to do the area exploring when you could just lie in bed with your coffee and enjoy the views. While we were there, I saw 5 deer and a fox so this provided some entertainment. What was something that we did not think of when booking and learned by experience was that Chester does not have the 'tour buses' running in and out of town all day and to us that was a positive. When we visited other sites, this was sometimes overwhelming, especially in Peggy's Cove. You missed all this tourist action for the most part in Chester. Jane Paul, the owner was incredible. She was at the cottage to great us and was very knowledgeable about the area. She was staying close by and provided us with absolutely anything we needed..usually within minutes. She provided emails prior to our stay detailing directions, recommended restaurants and activities. I can say that anyone who takes a trip to this area MUST go to the Shore Club for the lobster dinner, They closed for the season on October 9th this year so I am not sure when they would re-open again. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to a family (3 bedrooms with closet and dresser drawer space and washer and dryer), or couple. It was indeed an enjoyable stay ....one that we would like to repeat one day."

  • Relaxing getaway.

    "The cottage was very beautiful. The view from the front room was spectacular! There is also two decks. It is a very spacious cottage, great for family that like to have their space. There is also a beautiful lake, which would be wonderful for summer swimming. Comes with all needed utilities and essentials."

  • Beautiful home in Chester

    "We had a wonderful week long stay at this house in Chester. It is within easy walking distance to town and in a neighborhood so you feel like a local. A neighbor even brought us apple crisp! The house was perfect for the two of us and had everything we needed. It is decorated in a unique fashion so you feel you are somewhere different and special. I highly recommend this house and I also recommend Chester for a break from the cruise crowds - an authentic Nova Scotia experience."

  • Highly Recommended!

    "We stayed at the Mainsail Cottage for 3 nights in August and we absolutely loved it! The suite is just like a family cottage complete with pictures and memorabilia on the walls and shelving. It was very clean and had a warm and comfortable feel about it. The view is spectacular as it is right on the waterfront. The kitchen is fully equipped with a variety of small appliances and the bed was comfortable. Donnie & Carol are a fabulous couple, genuinely nice and friendly. We would like to go back and stay longer!"
