There are many B&Bs in Lunenburg, but we're confident we chose one of the best. The location was extremely convenient, making it easy to pop back to our room when we forgot something or wanted to rest for an hour. We were bicycle touring and arrived early in the day. The owners kindly allowed us to store our bikes and... More

Four of us stayed here overnight on July 18. The rooms are comfortable, with beautiful antiques. We were in two rooms on the second floor, overlooking the harbour. The hosts, David and Jenny, were terrific, with lots of suggestions about things to do and see in this beautiful town. Jenny made a wonderful breakfast--fruit, yoghurt, juice, croissants, rhubarb bread, and... More

This little B&B was a great place to stay while in Lunenburg. The owners are absolutely fabulous. We received a warm welcome and great information about activities and restaurants around the area. We stayed in the Ruby Room. The room had a small bathroom/shower that was built into what must have been a closet. The sink was in the corner... More

Our stay at the Kaulbach House was wonderful. David and Jenny are both warm, friendly, and have a great sense of humor. The house is very well taken care of - clean and well-maintained, down to the last detail. Jenny's breakfasts were substantial and delicious, and David made us feel right at home. The room had everything we needed -... More

Can't say enough good things about this B&B. The hosts are great. David took the time to orient us in town, offer dining suggestions and told us about places to visit. We had a fantastic harbour facing room which was most spacious and comfortable. The bed was super comfortable and we got a great night's sleep. Very quiet location, even... More

We had reserved the attic room and were so happy we... More

Thank you for your comments. I am very pleased that overall your stay with us was a pleasant one but sorry that not all aspects were to your satisfaction. A full housekeeping service is available for stays of more than one night but we find the majority of guests prefer the privacy of an undisturbed room. It is normal practice... More

We have been staying at B&B's more recently, and the 1880 Kaulbach House was our choice in Lunenburg. We chose it for its location near the waterfront, restaurants, and activities. We weren't diappointed. We had the enire thrid floor to ourselves, and we enjoyed it immensely. Breakfast was excellent, and the discussions with the other guests was very interesting and... More
