My wife and I recently were married at the Boscawen on Dec 21st, 2013. We could not have chosen a better venue. The couple that owns the Inn could not have been more helpful or accommodating. They made sure that everything we could have asked for was taken care of, and even more. When there was a small hiccup with... More

On the evening of the winter solstice, we celebrated our son and new daughter's wedding at the Boscawen. Everything was perfect! We visited the inn and met Johnathan and Judy back in March, 2013 and felt the kids had made the right choice then. And they surely had. From the time we arrived two nights before the wedding to the... More

What can I say that has not already been said? Yes, the Boscawen Inn requires an investment of time and money but the new owners Judy and Jonathan are doing just that. They purchased the Boscawen Inn and have embraced the restoration as a labour of love, determined to restore the Inn to her original glory. The Inn was built... More

You forgot one thing - great guests! I am not sure why but for some reason the Boscawen attracts the best people. I love meeting all the different, wonderful people that visit and finding out about their travels or what brings them to this special town. Thank you so much for taking the time to post a lovely review. More

Just spent 2 nights at this delightful 125 year old building in Lunenburg.....a couple of blocks off the main street, but nothing in Lunenburg is far away, so this short stroll is delightful. And the view of the harbour and golf course is so fantastic. We stayed in the corner room with the turret window. Very quiet space, large bathroom... More

went there for two days for a first visit with friends. We expected tradition, we had it all. Ideally situated in the UNESCO heritage village this building has been an inn for many years. You really could count on a special ambience with a lot of something of a very nice past. We liked it! The rooms we had weren't... More

Great B&B with lots of character. The hosts are super nice and helpful. The breakfast was good (the fruit was not fantastic, but everything else was). I enjoyed the view from my cozy room, from the terrace, the public rooms and the breakfast room, and I enjoyed the feel of history all around me.

This was a bit of a disappointment. We arrived to be told that the room we had booked wasn't available because of plumbing problems. We were put in a family room at the top of the house with a queen bed and two singles, which made it crowded and inconvenient because of our luggage . I presumed this was because... More

The Inn downstairs is grand and full of antiques. The breakfast area is large and sunny. There is a deck that overlooks the ocean. The room needs updating. I was a bit disappointed. However, the hosts were terrific and always wanted to help and to make sure that your stay is a good one. The breakfast is better than your... More

I'm so sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at our inn. Jon and I just bought the inn last year and focused on the public areas to start with. We feel these are the areas that people will be enjoying the most when they come and stay with us. A glass of wine on our amazing deck or listening... More

Wonderful location, great public rooms - and views..and a helpful staff. But guest rooms need updating. Breakfast was uneven - no salt and pepper - limited bread selections and unripe fruit in big chunks-- but one day wonderful eggs. Inn keepers are gracious and committed to improvements..

Boscawen Inn has been a beautiful old building but is now a little bit tired & run down & needs a make over particularly the bedrooms. That said we enjoyed our stay here & the staff were extremely friendly & helpful & accommodating. The terrace overlooking the Bay is a delight for a late afternoon drink admiring the view.
