We had great expectations having read the reviews but have to it was nothing that special The hosts are welcoming and the place is well kept with a nice location but just like lunenburg it is overrated The rooms are adequate but not special and the breakfast is good with very welcoming hosts but overall it just lacks a little...

We feel badly about this. We sincerely strive to provide a five out of five experience for all our guests and regret that we (and it sounds like Lunenburg in general) did not have the je ne sais quoi that would have made their visit special. More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in early August and absolutely loved it. It is a beautiful house, incredibly knowledgeable and friendly owners, and a great breakfast which they tailored to accommodate a food allergy of mine. You can't ask for better, we had a great stay.

We chose Ashlea house on the strength of the tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The property is full of charm and historic features. The owners are amazing too, they have so much pride in what they do and the home they clearly enjoy so much and want to share. We only had a night to spare but wish... More

Stayed here during a busy wedding weekend and couldn't have asked for two better inn keepers. They accommodated our late arrival, prepared an amazing breakfast and were extremely knowledgeable about the area and the history of the house itself. The rooms are clean, cozy and full of character and the rest of the house is charming as well. Outdoor patio... More

Such a beautiful B&B, with charming hosts and of course we loved Schooner the dog. We had a huge, beautiful room with a view, comfy bed and nice seating area. The breakfasts in the big dining room were not only delicious and the best of the trip - but fun too with lots of conversation. Lunenburg is beautiful and full... More

This was our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast, and we picked a great one! The inn is located a short walk from downtown in a quiet neighborhood. The innkeepers Lynn & John were very nice and gave helpful suggestions of activities and places to eat (The Knot Pub and Salt Shaker Deli were great). Our room was... More

The hosts could not have been more helpful, the room was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was served family-style, plenty to eat and very delicious. We also were treated to a little of the history of the house and the town during breakfast.

Not only is the house lovely and well-kept and the breakfast thoughtful, Lynn and her husband give excellent advice and were kind, patient and helpful when we (a) lost our bedroom keys, and (b) accidentally left behind my favorite pajamas...We also loved walking out the front door, across a tiny park, and into the center of town.

My wife and I stayed at Ashlea House for one night on our trip around Nova Scotia. A well-kept mansion from the by-gone era, quiet, clean, convenient. Lynn and John are great hosts, easy going, knowledgeable in the history of the town, ready to suggest landmarks to visit and things to do. Excellent breakfast.
