The Alicion B&B is a 5 star experience within a short walking distance to the town of Lunenburg. Lorne & Janet are the perfect hosts. A stay in their beautiful home is far superior to a hotel. Exquisitely appointed rooms with a fine collection of antiques. Their concern for our planet is evident. The Green Beaver toiletries provided were wonderful.... More

We recently stayed there and had a wonderful visit. Breakfast was deliscious and our room (periwinkle) was beautiful!! The tub and bed were amazing!!! Janet was very friendly and welcoming and easy to talk to. Wifi doesn't work in the bedroom - not that you need it anyway. And an easy walk to the lunenburg downtown. Love that green beaver... More

Dear Keddy, We thank your for the lovely review. Thanks also for not obsessing over the Wifi, and regret any inconvenience. We do, however, recognize how important it is and discovered that the Periwinkle Room was getting irregular service despite strong signals elsewhere. We have made several calls and will fix the problem in the next day or two. We... More

We visited for 4 nights and enjoyed the stay immensely. Janet and Lorne are great hosts, the room (Periwinkle) was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. Its a very short and pleasant walk into town, and unlike a previous reviewer - what busy street?? Breakfasts were great and varied. We enjoyed relaxing on the porch at the end of the day... More

We stayed here for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our room was large, clean and well appointed. We slept well every night we were there. The B&B has environmentally friendly practices which we found to be positive. Our room was quiet even with the windows open for fresh air. The breakfasts were excellent and Loren was attentive to...

Lacks view of charming town, walk into old town crosses busy street, no socializing encouraged other than at breakfast. Wi-fi is useless in rooms. Have to be in living room to pick it up. Host says it's not a problem? On plus side, breakfasts were great and varied, room was very nice.

Dear Boopbapazooka We appreciate you commending us on providing a “great breakfast” and “a very nice room”. These are the key elements that every B&B strives for. The rating you selected, however, and some of your remarks are incongruous with such positive comments. We would like to address those other remarks. We do care about our amenities such as the...

My wife and I recently visited Lunenburg and while we have stayed in Lunenburg we had never stayed at the Alicion B & B. We're sorry we hadn't. It is a beautiful old house, well maintained with large bright rooms and all the amenities. Breakfast was delicious and our Hosts Lorne and Janet Johanson where wonderful. We'll be staying here...

The Alicion Bed and Breakfast was surely a highlight of our trip, very welcoming, clean and extremely full of character. The Hosts Janet and Lorne went above and beyond to ensure our stay was as comfortable and enjoyable as could be. We loved the Breakfast conversation in the gorgeous Dining room surrounded by and getting to know the other guests... More

I spent two nights there and was so impressed. The owner was so gracious and helpful, right down to drying a few things for us. The breakfasts were delicious and thoughtful; the conversation a delight. There are many books at your disposal and of course Lorne is a wealth of knowledge. The rooms were spacious, clean and bright as was... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, and celebrated Canada Day in Lunenberg. The hospitality shown by Lorne and Janet was outstanding, and we would certainly return here on any future trip. The Alicion oozes charm, and the setting is quiet and relaxed. The breakfasts were superb, and the rooms well appointed and spacious.

We stayed 3 nights at the Alicion Bed & Breakfast during our visit to Nova Scotia in June 2014. Lorne & Janet are friendly hosts, with plenty of interesting conversation; the breakfasts were excellent, freshly & individually cooked each day; our room (Kingfisher) was spotlessly clean, large & very comfortable with every facility you could possibly need; the house &...
