great quiet location - cozy well appointed cottage.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great base camp

  • 4 of 5

Great location and property. All the comforts of home (excl. hairdryer). Loved the deck (hot tub needed maintenance)Well equipped , comfortable bed in Master bedroom, the second one on main floor needed lamp, shelf near bed and mirror..Great storage.

Owner was a great communicator, even though we never met. Tip: lack of clear info re: recycle of waste. We really enjoyed our stay and would return and recommend. Thank you.

Nice place! Would go back!

  • 4 of 5

Location was average. The picture makes it look like it's more secluded than it is. It was nice that it was right in town though. Chester is a great little place! We enjoyed walking along the shore, going for ice cream and visiting the shops and restaurants in town. The locals were very friendly! The harbour scenery and other coastal towns nearby where beautiful for "Sunday driving" as well. We found it helpful to have a car. Chester is close to other famous towns like Lunenberg and Mahone Bay and 1 hour from Peggy's Cove (which is one the way to Halifax).

The house was great, especially the hot tub. With only one small bathroom and small quarters, we don't know if the place would work very well for more than 1 couple unless they didn't need privacy. ;) The loft is open-concept with 2 beds, so the house may work well for a group of guy friends or a group of girl friends.

The owner was helpful and answered our questions by email throughout the week.

When we arrived in early June there were not Pantry Items in the house.

House may be overpriced, particularly in summer months. Very clean though. Dishes and appliances were new and adequate.

We would go back! We love the East Coast!

Owner's Response: Just as a FYI - the place has all linens, towels, dishes, pots, pans, BBQ, and anything you may need in that regard. We do not stock pantry items besides salt and pepper because most people are not comfortable using something that was used by the previous group - baking goods, etc.

Nice little place

  • 4 of 5

Good location in Chester - which is a quite little town but nice to stay in. Cottage has everything you need for a getaway plus the additional bonus of a hottub. Owner is friendly and stayed in touch to ensure everything was ok. We had a nice little stay here - would go back.

Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and everything was as described. Perfect location in the main part of Chester -- away from the crowds down by the shops but only a few minutes by foot to join the action!
