The Mecklenburgh Inn, Chester

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.

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.  Visit us at www.mecklenburghinn.ca

Boasting modern amenities, exquisitely designed large suites, luxury bedding and mouth-watering breakfasts…you probably won’t want to leave.
