Just a fabulous location. The inn has a fantastic view and fantastic hosts to match. You will certainly enjoy the Graves Island provincial park just a cross the way. Chester is home to great antiques, gastromony, play house and yachts!

To all future guest: This is not true and in seven years I have not missed a booking. I double up on everything. These were not guests and never got past my front door. They were demanding and pushy.

My wife and I stayed at Gray Gables during a recent trip to Nova Scotia for a friends wedding.

We stayed several days in the main floor Ocean Mist room which is very accessible (not for wheelchairs) for seniors. This is a Canada Select B&B and deserves its high rating. Our room was very spacious with two easy chairs, private tv and even a fireplace if needed. The bathroom offered an easy walking shower and jacuzzi tub. We had...
