This was our second stay at the Mecklenburgh. We love the inn and Suzi, the owner is wonderful. Her breakfasts are to die for. The inn is situated in the center of Chester, which is a lovely seaside village on the south shore of Nova Scotia. Definitely worth the trip.

Anyone going to the South Shore of Nova Scotia, specifically Chester, should stay at the Mecklenburgh Inn, Suzi is a great hostess, I was shocked at the amazing breakfast she prepared plus the rooms were amazing. I would definitely return to the Mecklenburgh Inn!!!

D, Next time you're in town I hope you can stay longer. A round of golf on our 18 hole course or tennis at the public courts...or maybe a boat tour of the Bay. It all awaits you here in Chester. Hope to see you again. Suzi

After two and a half weeks of traveling throughout New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, I was exhausted. I am so glad that this "let down" happened in Chester at the Mecklenburgh Inn. I felt comfortable in this B and B the moment I entered into front hall and saw all the homey, and beautiful decorations. As soon as I reached...

Recently spent a relaxing night in Chester at the Mecklenburgh and as usual everything was ship shape. Suzi, the owner, makes everybody feel comfortable and she turns out a superior breakfast in the morning at the main table. No formal process here when checking in. The front door is always open and there is a note for what room you...

I have stayed at the Mecklenburgh Inn twice now and love it! The rooms are great, there is even an apartment part (with kitchen) if you are staying for while! Everything is clean and neat, breakfasts are great and the owner could not be more wonderful! Would definitely recommend!

We checked into the Mecklenburgh Inn around 8:30 p.m. and found a guestbook in the front entrance with a personal note from owner Suzi Fraser letting us know she was just next door, that our room was at the top of the stairs and that we shouldn't hesitate to call if we needed anything. There were little stuffed lambs on...

Evelyn, thank you for staying with me at the 'burgh. I'm pleased you enjoyed it. The bacon is home smoked by a friend of mine and the pancakes are made with buttermilk and sour cream. Call me if you want the recipe. Names: I can't remember my own most days, but I will remember yours when you return.

Chester is a gorgeous little town. Smack dab in the middle of it is the Mecklenburg Inn, so charming and homey. I have stayed twice and slept like a baby both times on soft beds with fresh linens. Suzie, the proprietor, knows everything about Chester. She can tell you what to visit, how to get there, what events are coming...

Ldog, thank you for your kind review. The linens are dried on the clothesline so smell like outdoors. Breakfast conversations are always enlightening and entertaining - I learn a lot from my guests every morning. Thank you for choosing the Meck, I enjoyed your visit and hope you return.

My husband and I stayed here a few days ago, fleeing the power outages following Hurricane Arthur, to visit an art gallery and have a nice dinner. We absolutely loved the Mecklenburgh Inn.
