We stayed for 2 nights in this beautiful B&B. It stays in a very good location, in a quiet area, near a square with a playground and a few streets from the sea and the main seaside street. From their balcony, we could have beautiful views over the bay, mainly at the end of the day. In the living room,...

The Inn is within walking distance to everywhere in Old Lunenburg, the new part of Lunenburg is a short drive away. Judy upgraded our room from garden to harbour view - totally unexpected - lucky for us that she did cos it was beautiful - overlooking the harbour. Room was clean and bed very comfy - felt like staying in...

Thank you so much. You have brightened my day tremendously. When you get stuck in doing upgrades and renovations you forget the why. Well, this is the why - the good feeling you get when you make someone's holiday the best it can be. You must come back soon though as we are redoing the bathroom in that room -...

The Boscawen Inn was truly a lovely hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast (included) was excellent with lovely ambiance, great service, and (of course) delicious food. The location also was good. We were within easy walking distance of all the attractions of Lunenburg, which we loved. We were a couple of blocks from the harbor, with great views....

We had a lovely room overlooking the harbour. Staff were wonderful and they made our stay fantastic. The Inn is a beautifully restored property and has great charm. We were with a large group and the staff were able to accommodate the entire group and provide exceptional service

My husband and I stayed at this charming Inn for three nights that turned out to be our best days while visiting the entire province of Nova Scotia. This was a grand, old home that the current owners renovated and turned into a priceless gem in the heart of this historic town. We didn't want to leave. Photos don't do...

I stayed here for three nights at the beginning of October with my family. It is a wonderful time of year to visit, as the autumn leaves were changing colours, and almost everywhere you looked was a photo moment. The Boscowen Inn is located on the top of the hill and overlooks the Lunenburg Harbour. It is close enough to...

The inn has beautiful reception rooms, bedrooms and very helpful reception personnel . The location is fantastic with plenty of parking in nearby streets if the 6 or so dedicated parking bays are full. The structure of the building and its renovation to its present layout unfortunately makes it noisy . We were in 104 on the ground floor and...

Jon and Judy have put their heart into the Boscawen Inn and it shows. They host the most beautiful weddings (you can see this when you look them up on Facebook) and in July 2014, they hosted my company for our annual investor/budget meeting. We took over the Inn (and a few other inns) for a week, making the Boscawen...

Our family spent several evenings this summer at the Inn and we were always very, very impressed. The family who owns and operate this magnificent property are meticulous and entirely empathetic to the guests; they do a wonderful job. Lunenburg is a beautiful place and there are many ways to enjoy it, but if you're visiting the area, a night...

We celebrated our wedding at the Boscawen Inn this summer. Our families and friends filled every room for a beautiful July weekend full of fun and festivities. John and Judy made event planning and organization simple and fun. Their beautiful Inn is a perfect venue. The Boscawen Inn is like a home away from home.
