About Peggy Zock

I have moved back to Nova Scotia after spending 10 years in Vancouver, BC. When I am not in Chester I would be in the UK, Italy, France, Ontario, BC, NB or the NWT.

Peggy Zock purchased this house in 2015

Why Peggy Zock chose Nova Scotia

I love Cape Cod homes with the dormers, and nooks and crannies. Cedar shakes and private yard adds to the charm yet steps from the water and town.

What makes this house unique

Steps to the water and close to town. Private property with new salt-based hot tub. Fully-appointed kitchen and large dining room. Very comfortable furniture and new pillow-top mattresses.

Our whole family really enjoyed our week at your wonderful home. The space worked out so well both indoor and cosey and relaxing and lovely. We were so thrilled with our Pig Loop Gem that we are seriously thinking of booking it again!!!!

Perfect home!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful stay. This is a beautiful property - actually much more spacious than the photos suggested. We had everything we needed and Peggy was a perfect host. We hope to return again!

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

Peggy's home is very clean, comfortable, and is a great jumping off point for exploring the southern end of Nova Scotia. We stayed three nights and it wasn't nearly enough to see everything. Our favorite part was our evening soak in the hot tub after walking all day. Thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful home.

Beautiful home in downtown Chester

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 6 adults had an amazing time. The house itself was very clean, well maintained and tastefully decorated. Very comfortable beds and linens; a well appointed kitchen with all the amenities we needed (and then some); two levels of entertaining space; wireless internet; in a beautiful home nestled in quintessential Chester. Our host replied very promptly and kindly to all my enquiries and I won't hesitate to recommend this spot to anyone in the future as it showed better in person than online.

A local hike (Labrador Castle) is worth the trek and effort as the views of Chester Basin are gorgeous - especially if you can hit it when the leaves are changing (it was mostly brown/green when we went at the end of October). Downtown Chester is quite hilly, but very picturesque and a great athletic challenge for anyone looking to have a cycling or running workout.

Lovely House, Lovely Owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for just under a week at the beginning of October. The house is warm, inviting and within walking distance to many interesting places and amenities. The entire transaction from start to finish was quite easy and we look forward to coming back next year.

Thank you to the owner for the hospitality and accommodation.

3 Bedroom Cape Cod, with a large yard located on a private lane, within steps of the Harbour. A short stroll to Restaurants, shops, convenience store, and a french bakery. Close to Tennis Club, Yacht Club, Curling Rink and Golf Course. Fully-appointed kitchen...a wood-burning stove for chilly evenings; not to mention a salt-based hot tub to take away any unwanted stress. And the "piece-de-resistance"; ironed, laundered sheets. :-)
