We (family of 4) stayed at the Rum Runner on July 11th. The room was super clean and spacious with a fantastic view overlooking the Lunenburg harbor. The location was great, just steps from excellent dining, shopping and the harbor. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We highly recommend and we would definitely stay at the Rum Runner again!

My mother in law and I stayed at this inn for a girls night in my favourite town in Nova Scotia. We stayed in room 6 which had access to the large patio over looking the water. The room was fabulous, and we have a wonderful time looking at the ocean while enjoying a glass or two of wine. The... More

A great place to escape for a night. Perfect location and close to everything. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the price was right. I would gladly rebook a night at the Rum Runner Inn.

Our second time at this wonder Inn, next time we are in Lunenburg we'll be staying there again. The staff is wonderful and help full. The view from our room was to die worth the stay just by its self. It is worth paying more for the view. The restaurant is worth eating at - the first time we were... More

The folks at the inn were extremely helpful and nice in giving advice and accommodating my party. Although I had made a reservation online, I wanted a larger room and they moved us to a beautiful room for a nominal fee. I appreciated all their consideration. I would stay there again.

This was a "disconnection" trip after an intense conference weekend in Halifax. The minute I walked into the room, I cried. The view from the glass enclosed balcony was exactly what I had dreamed of for a month .... exactly like the picture on the website. Everything was almost surreal. The king room was beautiful. Opened the windows of the... More

Very comfortable, reasonably priced room with a balcony sitting area overlooking the waterfront. Clean, bright decor with a positive feel. Right on the main street for dining and shops. Helpful and welcoming hosts . Great view from the enclosed and sunny balcony nook.

My wife and I arrived after a long day travelling from the ferry at North Sydney after docking at 7:30am. It is still early season here but this community and this facility are ready. They were most hospitable, putting us up in a nice clean room. We could have had a better room with a view but we decided to... More
