The “Meck” is an historic turn of the century inn circa 1902, just 30 minutes from Halifax and two blocks from the Atlantic Ocean, in the heart of the charming village of Chester. The harbour is dotted with sailboats and on a clear day the sunshine sparkles off the water and the view is simply spectacular.
My name is Suzi, and I’ll be your host. I trained at London Cordon Bleu thinking if nothing else at least I won’t eat Kraft dinner the rest of my life. Breakfast here is healthy and eclectic. Depending on your mood you can choose to have it served at the large harvest table amidst the lively dialogue or take it outside on the deck.
The atmosphere at the Inn is decidedly casual; just kick off your shoes, make a cocktail and relax. The living room is perfect for fireside chats, scrabble, or perusing magazines. Or perhaps grab a book from the library and settle in for the night.
The cookie jar is always full.
Welcome to The Mecklenburgh
There are four guest rooms, all with private bath. Three have clawfoot tubs with shower, one has shower only.
The rooms are large and bright; most have sofas and distant water views depending on how tall you are. The wide pine flooring has been restored to its original state. All rooms have Frette bathrobes, reading material to suit every taste, Lindt chocolates and a wide assortment of thoughtful amenities. The mattresses are pillow top or memory foam and have down duvets with crisp line-dried Frette linens and local quilts.

"This was by far the best place we stayed in Nova Scotia. From the warm welcome to the beautifully furnished rooms to the gourmet breakfast, the Mecklenburgh Inn is a winner. We will definitely be back in the spring."
Please come, the door is always open.
I think you'll have fun.
