Stayed here 2 nights on our road trip through Nova Scotia. Unfortunate beginning to our stay as it was raining upon arrival, there was a folk festival in town, and inadequate parking at the inn, so we had to park a block away. Room was clean & nice, however only one comfortable chair and one straight back. Hot breakfast- bacon... More

The B@B is beautifully appointed. Decor is not over the top as in some B@B. Great views from rooms, dining area and terrace. The owners are friendly, wonderfully helpful, and great to chat with. Breakfast dining room is very pleasant. I would have liked to see better variety and choices on the buffet such as delicious breads, cheeses, jams, and... More

I cant say enough about how positive our visit was to the Boscawen Inn. The Owners John and Judy could not have been more friendly, helpful or welcoming. The Inn is charming and so comfortable. While somewhat grand in design it has a relaxed atmosphere and feels like a favorite sweater. The Inn is located perfectly, up on the hill... More

This inn is full of old world charm with all the modern conveniences. We stayed in room 303 with a queen bed and 2 twin beds. It is on the top floor overlooking the deck with a great harbour view. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, when we arrived Jon put on a fresh pot of coffee for us.... More

We were fortunate to be able to book the entire Inn for our daughter's wedding. Judy, Jon and staff were wonderful, and took great care to be sure we had a good stay. The Inn is lovely, and perfect for a special occasion. The location is ideal -- you can walk everywhere in Lunenburg and enjoy the sites and great... More

Great place. Nice people. A beautiful, elegant setting with an interesting heritage. Our garden room was small but very clean and comfortable. The Continental breakfast was simple, but delicious. Great place for anyone. A particularly nice place for couples.

We stayed at the Boscawen for two nights at the end of July. It's the perfect place for exploring the town and taking in the sights. Be sure to leave time to relax on the deck at the end of the day and enjoy a drink. The breakfast buffet in the tastefully furnished dining room was a wonderful way to... More

What a beautiful place! It was like walking into the early 1900's; even the music was appropriate! We loved it....and at a reasonable price too. Very welcoming set up in room. Not a great breakfast, but adequate. We're not big breakfast people, so it was fine for us.

We stayed one night at the Boscawen Inn and it was a great experience. The owners were very nice and very accommodating with our requests for an early check in. Even though the room was not yet available, we were able to get the keys and leave our luggage behind the front desk. Those bags were delivered to the room... More
