This was the first time we stayed at a bed and breakfast and I wasn’t sure if I would like it. But we can honestly say we would do it again. Lorne was very friendly and the place was just beautiful. We had a large room with a king bed and our own private bathroom. We were in walking distance...

We stayed at the Alicion B&B for three nights in June. It’s a beautiful old home with a wrap-around porch that is wonderful for relaxing in the afternoon. Our room was downstairs near the kitchen so it was a little noisy in the morning, but we were out early to photograph so it didn’t bother us. If you want more...

This was my second time staying at the Alicion. It is a beautiful home, conveniently located within a nice walking distance to downtown. The rooms are beautiful, spotless and large. We stayed in the Periwinkle room, and a few years ago in the Dragonfly room, both are beautiful, with jacuzzi tubs. Janet greeted us when we arrived, and was very...

We'd been told that Lunenburg was the quintessential village along the coast of Nova Scotia. They were right! And we found the perfect place to stay in Lunenburg. The Alicion is a beautiful, historic home with welcoming hosts in Lorne and Janet. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice to stay here.

We have been to many B&B's in our (long) lifetimes and we have never been to a nicer facility than the Alicion. The home is beautifully restored, the rooms large, clean and filled with amenities missing from may B&B's

Staying at the Alicion B&B was truly fantastic in every respect. I rarely write reviews, but this experience warrants high praise indeed. The house itself is an exceptional property that is immaculately maintained. It is very convenient to the historic center of Lunenburg, yet in a very peaceful and quiet location. The hosts, however, are its true treasures. Julie extends...

My husband and I recently spent two nights at the Alicion B&B (June 25-26) during our 8 day tour of Nova Scotia. Lovely old home which has been very nicely restored by the current owners.
