As Lunenburg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, we did not know what to expect. We were very lucky to pick Ashlea House for the B+B to stay in. John and Lynn were great hosts and provided us insight into where to eat and what to see. We plan on staying here when we return to Lunenburg for a longer... More

My husband and I recently spent two nights at the Ashlea House. Everything was great. The room we stayed in was lovely and comfortable, and the entire house has been beautifully restored, with several sitting rooms available in the common area. Each morning we were treated to a delicious breakfast that relied on the excellent produce of the local area.... More

Ashlea House is always a perfect place to stay to enjoy Lunenberg. I cannot recommend it or the owners enough - if you were to look up "excellent customer service", you'd see them there for certain. Great breakfast, home away from home, do yourself a favour an go there for some proper East Coast Canadian hospitality!

John and Lynn have it down to perfection! The house is a beautiful restoration with large rooms and nice common areas. Breakfast is a treat unto itself with Chef John's daily creations using quality ingredients from local sources as often a possible. The dishes are creative and filling. Lynn says the goal is for you not to have to buy... More

The room and hospitality were fantastic - Lynn and John were extremely nice hosts, friendly and helpful about what to do around town. Breakfast each morning was varied and quite tasty, and the communal style of eating helped us meet other guests and share vacation stories. Lynn and John even were extremely sensitive to my companion's dietary restrictions (celiac disease),... More

You will love Lynn and John --The perfect hosts! Their Ashlea House is close to everything in Lunenburg--a short walk to all restaurants and historic downtown. You will also love their dog Schooner. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfasts are excellent.

We were fairly new to staying at B&B's and followed a recommendation from folks we met who had stayed at Ashlea House the previous night. We are very glad we did. From the moment we arrived we felt comfortable and welcomed. Lynn had several restaurant suggestions and offered to make dinner reservations for us. After a great meal and a... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in September. Lynn and John made the communal breakfasts the best part of our visit to lunenberg. The menu was only surpassed by their history of the house and town. We used Lunenberg as our hub for our day trips to Wolfvillle and Annapolis Royal. On their culinary advise we had excellent... More

John and Lynn were great hosts and helpful from reservation to check out. Convenient to town center but quiet, comfortable rooms, delicious multi-course breakfast, great suggestions, and friendly atmosphere. We stayed on the third floor which was quiet and well-appointed. Highly recommend the trip out to Hirtles Beach and Gaff Point, a breathtaking hike along a rock beach and cliff... More
