Amazing ,relaxing and enjoyable!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

June in The Chester Garden House

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented the garden house for the month of June. Our family and friends were delighted with our choice.

The house was well equipped, spacious,comfortable,spotless and perfectly designed for entertaining groups of people.

The garden and grounds were well maintained with mature trees and flowering shrubs. The small waterfall and frog pond fascinated the children and the backyard was such an enjoyable space to relax with our friends.

The owners were quick to respond to any questions we might have had and were very accommodating and concerned that everything was as expected.

The village of Chester is charming, the restaurants are excellent and the location lends itself to easy access to other areas on the south shore waiting to be discovered.

A wonderful vacation and highly recommended.

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.
