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. Our needs were anticipated and met; great suggestions for daily adventure, yummy coffee, tasty breakfast meals, quiet spacious well appointed rooms with calming bay views, fragrant soaps, wi-fi, and...

We just returned from a 3 night stay at this inn. I cannot say enough nice things about the owners and the staff. They are charming, hard-working owners who take a delight in their inn and treat their guests as friends. The location is hard to beat with a lovely view of the waterfront in this very beautiful town. They... More

This was our perfect 1st experience of Lunenburg, made so by the wonderful people and place at Boscawen Inn. They made us feel like family. The views were spectacular, the conversations fun, the food fine (though same every morning), the activity and restaurant recommendations on the money. We are already talking about the return trip.

This is a classic / charming old house, well maintained and with a great view. With better beds we would have considered five stars, but hard creaky beds caused poor sleep. With upgraded mattresses this place would be a real treat.

My family of four had a wonderful stay at Boscawen Inn last week. We wanted a B&B type experience during our trip from Boston to Nova Scotia, but it was tricky to find an establishment that could comfortably accommodate a family. Room 303 at Boscawen Inn was perfect for us, with a queen bed and two twin beds. The view... More

We traveled to Lunenburg from Ottawa, ON and absolutely loved the Boscawen Inn. It has a vintage setting that is really charming and romantic. The room was very clean and the toiletries were really nice handmade shampoos and body wash made in Lunenburg, a nice change from the regular hotel shampoos! Breakfast was delicious and a beautiful dining room to... More

We stayed at the Boscawen Inn for six nights in June. The welcome was warm and our room was large, comfortable with a beautiful view of the harbour. The Inn is conveniently located a short distance from the harbour and wonderful restaurants. The Inn is surrounded by historical homes on a quiet street. A delicious breakfast was served in the...
