We were very lucky to get a room on Sept 25/15. I looked at a couple other B and B's in Chester and I'm glad we stayed here.

While looking for an attractive retreat along the Chester-Lunenburg shores of Nova Scotia, we found Gray Gables, a tastefully decorated ocean-view bed and breakfast perched on a hilltop overlooking a beautiful bay. From the main covered verandah, a magnificent view of the ocean stretches to the horizon and all the bedroom windows face the same attractive view. The air is... More
