The Boscawen inn is soaked in charm. The timeless theme was supported by the decadent decor, vivid view of the harbour, and surpassing service from the hosts. Whether you are at a loud wedding, quiet weekend, or on the lamb. This is the ideal location.

We visited this B&B on our honeymoon tour of Nova Scotia. We had a lovely tower room with a 4-poster bed overlooking the harbor. The room had an attached bathroom. We very much enjoyed our stay there. We also dined there in the evening as dinner was available. We loved how the hotel was decorated--beautifully. We hope one day to... More

We stayed at the Boscawen the night before we moved to the area, and couldn’t have asked for a better beginning. The inn is lovely, tastefully decorated, with subtly vibrant colours and polished antiques. On the main floor deck, we enjoyed a glass of good wine and a terrific view of the blue harbour. Jon, Judy and Rachel are delightful... More

This is the perfect venue for your wedding! We had ours here and it was a flawlessly wonderful fun and unforgettable experience. Joh and Judy were helpful, attentitive and fun to boot. The setting is gorgeous and really can't be beat. Everything, from the beautiful ceremony on the scenic balcony, to the cocktails in the parlour, to the superb dinner,... More

A big thank you to our hosts at the Boscawen Inn that made our two day visit restful! Our corner room (Honeymoon Suite) was perfect. Jonathan & Judy made us feel welcome and were more than accommodating. Our room looked out on the harbor and distant hillside golf course. An afternoon was spent reading on the expansive deck with a... More

Visited here late September and really enjoyed our stay. The inn is located on a hill so great views. Our room was clean, decorated nicely, perfect harbour views. The owners of hotel were great offering advice, and were there to help. Amazing rooms to explore in old house, lots of antiques books, etc. Had some coffee on porch. Breakfast was... More

My wife Jamie and I (Christian) got married at The Boscawen Inn on September 13th, 2014. And I wouldn't have wanted any other place in the world. From the moment you step inside and get transported into the past and forget all about internet, tv, your phone or any worries that might await you at home, to the last tune... More

The Inn was beautiful. Sitting on the deck was so lovely on a nice day. Room was clean and bright. Staff and owners very friendly. Would definitely recommend as a wedding venue, as my wedding was fabulous.

I'm not a big B&B fan but there aren't really any other options in town. It can sometimes feel like you are staying in someone else's grandmothers spare room. This was not the case at Boscawen Inn. The place is lively, beautiful and had the best view in town. It was so relaxing and pleasant that we considered changing our... More

Spent only one night in this great location and property. Next time, will book at least two nights because of my recent experience. Wife and I took a third floor room which was very quiet. As other reviews mention, Jon and Judy are friendly, helpful and the type of owners you enjoy staying with. Jon even carried one of our... More
