Gray Gables is one of the best places I have stayed. Jacqui and Dave make their home feel like a home away from home. The breakfasts are amazing and the view from my room was to die for. I would recommend Gray Gables and I cannot wait to return.

In November 2014 we rented all 3 rooms for 3 nights for a Junior tournament in Chester. From first contact with Jacqui and Dave until the moment we left the experience was wonderful. Clean, spacious rooms with access to the entire house was the perfect set up for us. Jacqui met us when we arrived, helped us settle in and...

In August, my husband & I traveled to Chester, N.S. to attend our son's wedding & we had the pleasure of staying at Gray Gables. Jacqui & Dave are incredible hosts and the gourmet breakfasts are amazing. The house and it's rooms are tastefully decorated and immaculate. The atmosphere is relaxing and very welcoming. We would highly recommend this B&B.

In August, my wife and I spent 3 nights at this lovely B & B. The minute we checked in we felt right at home. Dave and Jacqui treated us like family. The views from their B & B are breathtaking and they are centrally located that within an hour you can be in Halifax or Lunenburg. If you are...

Travelled to Chester for Business. My stay was very relaxing. Jacqui and Dave are fantastic hosts. Jacqui's breakfasts were great. I have never had a quieter or more peaceful sleep. If I am called back to Chester, I will be staying here.

We had a two day break to explore the Chester area before going on to PEI for our main vacation. This is a first rate B and B and well worth the 100 per cent reviews. Gray Gables is in a beautiful location close to Chester. We booked this from the UK and it proved to be an excellent choice...

This year my husband and I decided to take a "stay-cation" and play tourist in our own back yard. When searching for accommodations I came across Gray Gables Bed & Breakfast and sent off an email requesting booking dates. Jacqui was very prompt in returning my message and the next thing I knew we were booked for 3 nights. (August...

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...

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.
