1880 Kaulbach House is a brilliant place to stay in Lunenburg, very central and an easy walk to all the attractions and places of interest. David and Jenny Hook are great hosts; Jenny’s breakfasts were eagerly awaited and David was a great host and very helpful, especially with local information and suggestions. One of David’s suggestions not to be missed,... More

Ideal location to walk about Lunenburg. Lovely home. We stay at B&B's often and David and Jenny are by far the best hosts we have encountered. We were greeted by David and immediately felt at home. He took the time to sit with us and advised us of local attractions and dinning options that truly came through. I have fallen... More

Great location, beautiful rooms, full of romance and history. David was a wonderful host, the breakfast was great, and the room (Bluenose suite on the 3rd floor) was gorgeous. The second floor of this beautiful old home has a "Widow's Watch" where the lady of the house could look out to sea to watch for her husband to return. The... More

David was a great host in a lovely historic home. He was extremely helpful when we asked about local attractions. His wife cooked a marvelous breakfast. He was very helpful carrying our luggage since my husband and I have physical issues. We booked the reservation when we crossed into NS from PEI and drove right there.

David and Jenny are wonderful innkeepers! The property is beautifully kept. Great location. Just park your car and walk to fun shops and great restaurants on the waterfront. On a personal note, I left behind some important person items and David and Jenny went above and beyond what I think most people would have done to accomodate me. Very special... More

Conveniently located above restaurant row. Nice room. Jenny made a great breakfast, some kind of quiche. It was really good. David was very friendly and helpful. Fun to sit in the widows watch and look out over the harbor.

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
