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 Chester

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.

Beautiful home in quiet neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. It's a good central location for touring around this part of Nova Scotia. House is spacious and has a well stocked kitchen. We found the different cans for garbage confusing. A label on each container stating what goes in each container would simplify the process.

We loved our stay here and would definitely stay again if we come back to Chester.

Great house - Great location

  • 5 of 5

We have family in Chester and rented this house for our Christmas Holiday gathering. Upon arrival we were very impressed with the layout - nice open living area, good-size bedrooms (with comfy beds) and a huge family room where 4 of us could comfortably do yoga with room to spare. The kitchen is fully equipped such that we had every pot, pan, dish, bowl, utensil and appliance we needed. Very clean and tidy, and towels are luxurious.

Peggy decorated for the holiday and even polished the family silver for our Christmas Dinner. We'll be back!

Great location and very comfy home!

  • 5 of 5

Just had a wonderful stay at this beautiful spot in Chester. We were a group of four girlfriends visiting from Saint John, St. John's and Halifax who rented this home for a long overdue girl's weekend. The house is walking distance to pretty well everything in Chester and it had everything we needed for a fun and very comfortable stay. It was very clean, the kitchen had everything we needed and the bedrooms had comfy beds and nice linens. We would definitely recommend this home if you are looking for somewhere to stay in this area.

I rented this house so we could all get together. Our sons, daughter-in-laws, grandchildren and even their two dogs. We were very impressed with the whole place. Two and a half bathrooms, comfy beds, great location, tons of space with a private downstairs with another seating area, bedroom and bathroom. Comfy furniture with a kitchen stocked with everything you need. Four minute walk to the water with the most beautiful views. We could not of been happier. Such a beautiful area.

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. :-)
