Editor's Review
Updated Apr 4, 2014
This property is situated in the town centre of Lunenburg, which is a UNESCO world heritage town. The waterfront and the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic are within a 2-minute walk. Offering only four rooms, this property is well suited for guests comfortable with more intimate accommodations.

All four rooms are smoke free and include free Wi-Fi, an en suite bathroom with a jetted tub or an over-sized tub, a coffeemaker, a mini-fridge, a microwave, a sink, a hair dryer and air conditioning. Wheelchair-accessible rooms are not available and all rooms are accessible by stairs only. Non-shedding pets are permitted in guest rooms during the fall and spring seasons, at no additional fee.

A free breakfast buffet is served daily from 8 am to 9 am and includes bacon and eggs, smoked salmon, prosciutto, fresh fruit, bakery bread, fresh baked croissants, jams, cheese assortment, coffee, tea and orange juice. This property does not have an on-site restaurant.

Free parking is available on site and this inn offers free sails on their 48-foot Ketch sail boat (depending on weather and availability).

The Lunenburg Opera House, the Lunenburg Art Gallery and the Lunenburg Historical Society are all about a 3-minute walk away, while the Bluenose II reconstruction site is 8 minutes away on foot. The Bluenose Golf Club and the Halifax & Southwestern Railway Museum are both 6 minutes away by car.

Access to Highway 103 is a 15-minute drive away, while Halifax and the Halifax International Airport (YHZ) are both within a 90-minute drive away. (All walking and driving time estimates: Google Maps)
