This was our second trip to Lunenburg and both times we have stayed at the Boscawen Inn. Jon and Judy are such wonderful and welcoming hosts and made us feel like family the moment we walked through the door. The staff were very personable and accommodating and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Those traveling with infants/toddlers are also supplied... More

This was our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast ever. It was superb!! The owners and staff made us feel welcome. Beautiful house, loved our room with all of the unique touches to it and the food was excellent. It was a short walk down to the harbour which was just beautiful. At breakfast in the morning we...

My sister recently got married at the Boscawen Inn and it exceeded all expectations. The staff were lovely, incredibly helpful and very accommodating. The inn itself was beautiful and it was a perfect wedding venue. The breakfast was a delicious bonus too. Jon and Judy are doing an excellent job and our whole family was blown away by our experience.

Judy and her husband Johnathan were unbelievably kind and welcoming. We were showed to our room and soon surprised with a bottle of wine and balloon to celebrate our day! We stayed in... More

We stayed 2 nights here on an 11 day visit to N.S. It was very nice in most respects, except for the room itself. Since we really didn't spend much time there, it was not a deal breaker necessarily. The location is fab, the common areas are wonderful, the hosts are congenial and helpful, and the breakfast was delicious! That... More

For our first visit to Lunenburg, we booked a room at the Boscawen based only on positive TripAdvisor reviews and the promising photos on third party booking sites. After having stayed for two nights, we'll have to add our experience to the very pile of glowing reviews that we trusted to bring us there in the first place. We thoroughly... More

Boscawen Inn was indeed the icing on the cake for our first visit to Nova Scotia! Judy, John, and Rachel made us immediately feel at home in this lovely historic inn.
