This B&B was just wonderful. The home is magnificent. Janet and Lorne are charming hosts and Cindy who helps out was very attentive. The breakfasts are delicious and the accommodation spacious, warm and extremely comfortable. Janet made sure we had all the creature comforts we required for our stay to be memorable and informed us of the best places to... More

Wonderful home, wonderful hosts. If you are looking for B&B in Lunenburg with character, warmth, charm, and wonderful owners - look no further. The "Alicion" has it all. The rooms were very well appointed and very comfortable with all the amenities you might need. Lorne and Janet were great. Very helpful, friendly, courteous and professional. Don't miss out on this... More

We have just returned from two days in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, staying at the beautiful Alicion B 'n B. Due to a serious snowstorm, the reason for our short stay in Lunenburg was cancelled, the town in complete shutdown. We were unable to get to our breakfast date in Mahone Bay, so Lorne, our host, generously cooked us a late... More

The owners of the Alicion B&B, Lorne Johanson and his wife Janet were superb in their interactions with myself and made my week's stay most pleasant. I was staying there under trying circumstances because of a terminal illness in my family. Their genuine concern for a most trying time helped ease the stress I was experiencing. The B&B is a...

A perfect spot for a winter retreat. The hosts were incredibly friendly and well versed in places to visit and Lunenburg's history. Their home was beautiful, and incredibly clean. We loved the enormous bathroom of the Tamarack room, and the claw foot tub found within. As eco-minded individuals, the Green Beaver body products and artisan goat milk soaps were an... More

I know how Goldilocks felt when she found the "just right" bed and the "just right" breakfast. We two women were treated to great comfort in this modern B&B where product choices show the owner's great respect for the environment . I found the house a pleasing size, in fact "just right" to allow interaction with these very professional hosts.... More

We greatly appreciate your comments and acknowledgement of our environmentally friendly efforts. One thing we really celebrate here is the opportunity to see "every star in the sky" on a clear night. Perhaps you will be able to return as we often have clear nights. Thank you, Lorne and Janet More

It was exactly what we had hoped - loved the quality of everything, including breakfast. Absolutely great stay with great hosts and a wonderful cook for breakfast. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend for a couple needing a break from everyday life.

My wife and I recently spent a night at Alicion. It was recommended to us by a couple of local residents who knew it had a great reputation, which turned out to be well-deserved. The room was large and comfortable, and Lorne's breakfast the following morning superb. He did a great job engaging with us and the other couple staying... More
