We only stayed for one night but truly enjoyed this B&B. The house offers a lot of 'Old World' charm, character and comfort. Our room was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated, the bed comfortable and the wireless reception better than in most of the big chain hotels. The B&B is only a few minutes walk to the port of Lunenburg... More

We stayed two nights in early September. The house is stunningly beautiful! Lynn and John are wonderful hosts who truly make their guests feel welcome. They are very knowledgeable about the area and its history. Our room was very comfortable and clean.

We stayed in the 2nd floor Family Room -- and wish we had brought children to enjoy the wonderfully-decorated room that is available for them. The short walk through the park to "downtown" was a wonderful plus. Very clean, very attractive, nice breakfast, cute new puppy available for petting if you ask. Widow's walk is a bonus for views of... More

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
