There are over 100 AirBnBs in the Village of Chester alone, all wonderfully appointed and accommodating. More broadly throughout the South Shore, including Chester Basin, Western Shore and Lunenburg (all within a 20 minute drive), there are over 500 rentals available.
In addition to rentals, there are over 100 beautiful inns including the Mariner King, Fisherman’s Daughter, White Gate, and more. In Bridgewater (an approximate 25 minute drive) there is both a Days Inn and a Best Western.
Halifax is a 40 minute drive from Chester and offers an expansive and virtually unlimited number of options for both rentals and hotels, from economy to 5-star accommodations.
Finally, there are a number of options for camping including Graves Island Provincial Park, Hubbards Beach Campground & Cottages and the Ovens Natural Park.
