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

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...

We stayed at this inn recently for one evening . The owners were welcoming and attentive, as well as Rachel, who served us cold drinks on the patio overlooking the harbor. The inn is clean, very well kept and very quiet. The excellent location adds to the overall experience. Jon and Judy recommended several locations for dining and we were... More

My Mexican grand-daughter and I arrived late, cold on and tired at the Boscawen Inn on May 20th. Judy welcomed us warmly, and because it was not a busy night, we were upgraded to a room with twin beds and a view of Lunenburg Harbour. John came to the car to help with our luggage. The room was clean, comfortable... More
