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

The Boscawen Inn is a delightful base from which to explore the region. It is perfectly located in the middle of Lunenburg and is an easy drive to Mahone Bay, Chester and Peggy's Cove. Jon and Judy, the friendly and enthusiastic owners, have filled the beautiful public rooms with wonderful antiques. I would definitely recommend staying here.

The Boscowen Inn is a beautiful place to stay for rest and relaxation. Our room was lovely and overlooked the sea and breakfast was delicious. The inn is centrally located so everything in town is very accessible . Judy and Jonathon are wonderful hosts and so helpful with anything you need.

Beautiful setting for our small family occasion. The interior is gorgeous with antiques and furniture everywhere. The bed was very comfortable. The food service and bar selection are excellent. And of course the owners and staff were what made the stay really a step above. I'll be staying at the Boscawen Inn next time I have any reason to travel... More

Everything about my one week stay at the Boscawen Inn was perfect. All staff are friendly and accommodating, my room was spacious with a really comfy bed, and the location is great for walking anywhere in the historic town.
