Wonderful home, very nicely appointed, and so well equipped! Highly recommend to anyone seeking a home away from home. Upon entry through the front door, one feels a sense of peace and calm facilitating relaxation and enjoyment therefore setting the stage for a great vacation. Thank you Pauline & Ernie.
Our two families were very comfortable during our week at the lovely Chester Garden House. We were a party of nine including five teenage boys! Lots of room in the house for everyone to spread out in when we needed our own space yet several gathering spots when we wanted to be together (living room, family room and sun room). The eat-in kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed and the separate dining room was appreciated by the adults! Bedrooms were comfortable and there were lots of linens, towels, etc). The house is ideally located for walking to the village of Chester for shops, cafes, pool, park, grocery store). The yard offers a lovely spot to sit and enjoy an outdoor meal or coffee while listening to the frogs in the pond! Lots of day trips are possible (beaches, Tancook Island, Mahone Bay & Lunenburg, kayaking, etc). Our host, Pauline, was very easy to deal with and always reachable. We would definitely recommend this property!
Perfect for families, relaxing, and exploring Chester.
My wife and I along with our 3 daughters and their spouses stayed at this paradise for a week. Pauline and her husband were very responsive before, during, and after our stay. This house has everything you could want and exceeded our expectations. You literally only need your food, drinks, and clothing. The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you need to prepare meals. The place has loads of space, is beautiful, and the backyard is an oasis with a BBQ, large patio area, pond, waterfall and gardens. You can walk to everywhere in Chester, and the street is very quiet and private. Short drives find you in Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, or Blue Rocks. The owners maintain this property to a very high level and it shows. This property comes with my highest recommendation.
Our stay at Chester Garden House was very enjoyable. We found dealing with Pauline very easy (she was always responsive to emails etc.) and the house was clean, comfortable (especially the beds), well equipped, (plenty of towels and in the way of kitchen everything one would need) and the house is situated in a wonderful location (walkable to the main street, kids playground and Lido pool) and on a lovely large property. Some great restaurants in town Kiwi (for lunch or breakfast) and The Rope Loft (great view and decent food for a pub! The Haddock was delicious. Would would recommend this house in a heartbeat.
Wonderful Extended Family Trip
We stayed at the Chester Garden House for a week in July to celebrate my parents 50th anniversary. In total, there were 10 people staying at the house ranging in age from 5 to 78. The house was perfect! It gave us plenty of room to be together but also plenty of space to be apart when we needed too. The gardens are gorgeous. We had family pictures taken there by a photographer we hired from Mahone Bay and they turned out beautifully. Chester is a beautiful town and a great base for seeing the entire area. The kids with us spent HOURS at the beach looking for hermit crabs. The town salt water pool was a big draw and a trip to Tancook Island to look for sea glass is definitely worth it. Pauline was wonderful and responsive and a pleasure to work with. I am already plotting how I can get back!
Amazing ,relaxing and enjoyable!!
The Chester Garden House is everything thing you would want and more. We enjoyed sitting by the pond watching the fish and frogs. The gardens are well manicured and make for an excellent place to have morning coffee. The house itself is beautiful, spacious, and clean. The location is perfect, within walking distance of downtown Chester and the harbor, and within driving distance of the beach, vineyards, and plenty of history. We highly recommend this gorgeous spot in Chester.
