Stayed three days to explore the area. Host and Hostess were great, our room was large and comfortable. Stayed at several other B and B's during our visit and this was one of the nicest with a great breakfast. Would definitely return on future visits!

Alicion is a lovely property in a perfect setting close to historic downtown Lunenberg. The room was large and comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious each morning of our stay. We let the proprietor/cook choose the menu and he served us wonderful omelettes full of fresh veggies. He was also very helpful with restaurant selections and knowledge of the area....

A friend and I had a wonderful 3-day stay at this lovely B&B in a mansion in downtown Lunenburg. Our room was spacious, the beds comfy and the bathroom was divine with a claw foot tub outfitted as a shower. As well, it’s within easy walking distance of Lunenburg Harbour and historic waterfront area with lots of restaurants and shops....

After two weeks traveling through Nova Scotia, we ended our vacation at the lovely Alicion for 3 night. The room was very clean and fresh and breakfasts were amazing. The location is only a short walk to the habour. The owners, Lorne and Janet certainly made our stay a real treat.

Lovely 2 day stay. Very clean, bright and spacious room and private bathroom. Lovely bath products, linens and towels and a healthy breakfast. A quiet well treed BnB set back from the foot traffic of downtown but only a short walk into the shops and restaurants. A great place to stay and explore Lunenburg and/or wanting to recharge your batteries.

Hi Linda, Thanks so much for the positive review. It was a pleasure to host you both and to have your good natured presence at the breakfast table. It makes all the difference to us - but also to the other guests. We take pride in the attention to detail and greatly appreciate it when someone takes notice. Warm Regards,...

The house is lovely, beautiful inside and out. It is well located and just an easy walk from town. More than once, the host made us feel that our presence was not that welcome. He clearly said he was already thinking going back in his home province Vancouver... Other than that, thew rate is pricey considering the overall experience. I...

We are posting the same response to "BimmerDon" and "nf2121" as the opening sentences seem to be carbon copies, word for word. Thank you for the compliment that you did post. It is unfortunate that you felt strongly enough to post essentially the same “review” twice. You point out some sensitivity with regard to criticism. “Constructive criticism” is usually provided...

This old home is beautifully maintained. We stayed in the Dragonfly room and we loved all the details and all the dragonfly motifs through the the space. The house is filled with some amazing collectables and antique pieces. The owners were away while we were there but the couple taking care of us were very friendly and Jacque made us...

The house is lovely, beautiful inside and out. It is well located and just an easy walk from town. More than once, however, the host made us feel that our presence was an imposition, in a couple of rather uncomfortable conversations (to get a sense, you might want to look at the defensive tone of his response to every single...
