Gray Gables Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 5 Chester B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2014

Only had a 24 hr stop off on the south shore but we could not have picked better than Gray Gables. Our room had such a lovely view and was so comfortable - David did everything to make us feel at home and the breakfast was gorgeous! Certainly a wonderful place to stay.

I've stayed in many B&Bs, and the Gray Gables is by far the best I've ever seen. The house and its rooms were immaculate, beautifully and tastefully decorated, and modern-but-warm, with every amenity we needed (including wireless internet, soft beds, high thread-count sheets, many pillows), and many things we didn't expect, including a fireplace, a delicious gourmet breakfast every morning (no menu repeated throughout the week -- a lighter choice offered every morning), and a wonderful morning walk around Graves Island just a skip away. Our hosts, Jacqui and Dave, were gracious and personable at breakfast, providing us with great tips for sight-seeing and dining, and practically invisible at most other times, allowing us an unprecedented feeling of privacy and freedom to enjoy the beautiful house. The meals we had at the Gray Gables were quite honestly the best we experienced for the duration of our week-long vacation in shore shore Nova Scotia. We flat out had a better vacation because we stayed with Jacqui and Dave, and we're completely delighted with our stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in two of the three rooms at the B&B, and preferred the upstairs room with the king be...

Gray Gables is a beautiful, clean Bed and Breakfast. It is in a quiet location with a breathtaking ocean view out the bedroom windows. The B and B is very tastefully decorated and very clean throughout. We stayed for two days and the breakfast menu is different each day. Breakfast was very tastefully presented and delicious. The hosts, Jacqui and Dave are very friendly and helpful and you can't help but feel welcome in their home. The bedrooms were so comfortable and we had a wonderful sleep both nights. We booked for 1 night at first and later decided to change it to 2 nights. Because of this, we ended out changing rooms the second day. The upstairs room had a big king size bed and was even more comfy than the first. It is located about 45 minutes from the airport. We truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone staying in that area.

Room Tip: The bigger upstairs room has a better view of the ocean, but the downstairs room has a bigger window...

Being very fussy as to where we stay, Gray Gables and the owners far exceeded our expectations and standards. Super clean, comfortable, large rooms, exceptional view, close to beaches, trails, shopping and dining. We are recommending this B&B to all and will return whenever visiting the East coast. I am now hooked on the B & B idea but only if they are of as high a standard as Gray Gables. Thank you Dave and Jacqui.

We stayed at the Gray Gables for a one night stay
day week. Our room was huge, with plenty of closet space and room for luggage. We had a king bed with a fireplace and separate sitting area...with great views of the water. The owners are very interesting hosts with excellent recommendations of the surrounding area. The only shortcoming is the hot breakfast but could have offered some fruit. Very minor point for what was a very pleasant stay.
