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.

Stayed for one night and this was one of THE BEST B and Bs we have ever stayed in. The home is beautifully and comfortably decorated and John and Lynn encourage you to make use of the whole house. This Victorian is lovely and well-preserved, but not at all stuffy thanks to Lynn's talents. John was friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable... More

Managed to squeeze a nights stay at the Ashlea House when a guest needed to leave. Our gain! Awesome 1890s home with great features (gazebo, garden, cupola, decks and lounges). Location is a 5 minute walk to downtown as well as Knots, a wonderful pub with very good food just up the street. The hosts are welcoming and gracious and... More

We stayed here for one night in early June. Don't pass this one by. A most beautiful house and grounds. The owners were wonderful people with suggestions as to things to do. They had wonderful stories of the house as we were having one of the best breakfasts I've ever had! Such great variety of wonderful food! You will not... More

Great location, able to walk into town in a few minutes. John and Lynn were very friendly and willing to offer suggestions of what to see and where to eat. Very pleasant, good size room that had a sitting room across the hall and a porch one could go on, along with going up to what I call a widow's... More

Had a great four day stay. Enjoyed the quiet residential location that is only a 5-10 minute walk down a shaded path to the harbor area. Our room was a bit tight with four large suitcases but to be expected in a Victorian house. Everything was very clean and kept up; they take pride in their home. John and Lynn... More

Spacious room and decent bed. Great pillows! Air-conditioning was much appreciated. The proprietors Lynn and John take a lot of pride in maintaining such a beautiful and historic property. We are still marvelling at how incredible our breakfast was. Schooner the mascot is adorable. Great little walking trail to the heart of town (less than 5 mins) past some historic... More

Stayed two nights late June 2015. Excellent location for short walk to village centre and local pub. Spacious, spotlessly clean, internal and external accommodation in heritage property. We had second floor room with view over harbour and Bluenose coming into dock. Hosts (along with the dog Schooner!) made us most welcome, and breakfasts comprising home cooking, baking and fresh fruits... More

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at this guest house. The house is an elegant,historic property close to downtown Lunenburg. A pleasant short walk takes you to shops, museums and an array of good restaurants; the scallops are wonderful. We stayed in the cottage room with a view of the harbour and were extremely comfortable. Lynn & John ,... More

The Ashlea House was a highlight of our east coast vacation. John & Lynn are wonderful hosts, sharing great local history and stories of Luneberg. The breakfasts were fantastic and we especially liked the family style dining which allowed you to spend time visiting with other guests. The home is beautifully restored and the rooms have very comfortable beds and... More
