Cove Cottage is situated at the end of Chandler's Road, in a private, waterfront setting in the seaside village of Chester, just a short walk or drive to the center of the village and all its amenities; and to Chester Yacht Club. There are shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as a small sandy beach, outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, and a golf course nearby. The historic seaside village of Chester is roughly centered on 44‹32Œ25N, 64‹14Œ23W, overlooking Mahone Bay. A small picturesque sailing village, Chester is located on the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia, along the scenic, coastal Lighthouse Route. Known for its many stately Summer homes and relaxed, sailing lifestyle, Chester has two natural harbors: Front Harbor on the East and Back Harbor to the West. The waters of Mahone Bay, with its numerous islands, are well known for yachting. A ferry connects the village to two islands nearby; Big Tancook Island and Little Tancook Island.

We knew nothing about Nova Scotia and every where we went the people were wonderful and answered all our question. The Cove home was wonderful and we did not need a thing. When our internet Wi-Fi went out , it was fixed the next day. Chester was perfect place to stay. We would stay at this home again. Thanks to everyone. Just a reminder, the sliding glass door in Dining room does not lock.

Lovely oceanfront cottage!

Beautiful cottage on the ocean. Spectacular view! Sparsely furnished but all the essentials. Outdoor furniture needs upgrades. A lovely place for a family vacation!

Far Away and Close Enough!

  • 4 of 5

We chose Chester to be our jumping off point for excursions to LaHave, Mahone, Bridgewater, Hubbard, and Halifax. While you can find other options around Chester, we enjoyed this particular rental because of the location to the village and the waterfront view which was so peaceful.

The tide changes right outside your back door so enjoy the changing landscape and watch for plenty of animals. We had a full size deer walk thru the yard while we were dining.

The home is just over 1 mile stroll to the heart of the village and to Chester Golf Club. Highly suggest both. Kayaking and bikes are available in town. While you can enjoy cooking your own meals there are a few local flavor diners/pubs in town that are a great alternative.

The home has all the amenities necessary including an outdoor grill. They offer a small washer and dryer so pack only what you need and you can wash after a few days. Each room has baseboard heating so you can opt to heat zones of the house versus whole house.

To manage expectations for travelers, this isn't a Ritz Carlton. While linens, plates, and furniture are a bit dated, they add to the charm of the cottage. In that vein, this is a casual escape with simple amenities.

The management (Paul) visited while we were there when we explained we had an issue with the disposal. He was great! Side story, while there is a disposal, it is non-operational due to waste recycling practices.

Our only trick was understanding those nuances of waste recycling. Nova Scotia is very specific about what items go in what bag. Very good practices for sure! All scrap food is put in a compost bin. Recycle of beer/wine bottles is different than other plastic.

My suggestion to the management would be to write what day during our stay we need to place the waste out. We needed to read thru a large calendar brochure to figure out when pick up was for our location. Leave a note with your guest folder upon arrival. Make it simple.

Overall, we would book it again in a heart beat.
