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.  Proprietor Suzi Fraser is Cordon Bleu trained so in addition to being a wonderful host her breakfasts are legendary - 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. For more information and to book your stay visit mecklenburghinn.ca
