Wonderful Home for Family & Friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Chester Garden House for our immediate family reunion. In total we had 4 couples and three small children -- the house fit all of our needs perfectly. The rooms and furnishings were inviting and comfortable. The layout and space provided room for everyone to cook, dine, and hangout en masse -- but there was also enough space to find a quiet corner, if needed. The grounds are also spectacular -- and we enjoyed many meals outside. The overall location can't be beat -- an easy walk into Chester and a short drive to many wonderful beaches and towns along the Nova Scotia coast. The owners were easy to work with -- very easy and quick communication. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Two Week Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our selection of the Chester Garden house to entertain 6 couples over two weeks in July could not have been better! Everyone was very pleased at how comfortable, spacious, nicely decorated and relaxing the house turned out to be! Pauline and Ernie are delightful to work with and concerned that every detail is taken care of. We loved the location - an easy walk to the beach, Front and Back Harbors and the Village to shop and dine out. The kitchen is well-appointed when you want to cook in. We highly recommend Chester Garden House and the Town of Chester for your Nova Scotia experience.

Amazing house! Way above expectations, highly recommended!!

  • 5 of 5

This house went way above and beyond what we had expected. We were visiting the area in June for a week before our wedding, and had to put up a few family members who had travelled for the occasion. All we can say is that the pictures do not do the house justice at all! We were extremely impressed by the large floor plan, very generously sized bedrooms, and a beautiful backyard we were able to host a family BBQ in. The house is in amazing shape and is an easy walk from pubs, restaurants, and the beautiful harbour. We would easily rent this house again when we visit again.

It doesn't get better than this

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer visit to Chester, but this time we brought family and friends to experience this beautiful little town by the sea. So we needed more space and more bedrooms. What we found in the Chester Garden House was a stunning property with a wonderful garden. A perfect location for our family and friends to spend a few summer weeks. Everyone loved the house. Clean, modern and well equipped with thoughtful and responsive owners. From the kitchen to the loft, the house is a real gem. A superb choice for a large group. Highly recommended.

Beautiful and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My five girlfriends and I had our annual ladies only long weekend here and it was fabulous. There were three living rooms, all beautifully and comfortably furnished so we had plenty of room whether we all wanted to be together or have a little privacy. The kitchen was huge and thoroughly equipped; the bedrooms easily accommodated us all. The gardens and yard were lovely and private and we were only moments away from the village of Chester with shops and restaurants. We would recommend this home away from home to anyone..
