My daughter and I loved our two days in John and Lynn's very historic B & B in Lunenburg. The room was so comfortable, the food great, information on the town first rate BUT the very best thing of all were our hosts.....John and Lynn and Schooner the dog!! After about 1/2 hour, we felt as if we were longtime... More

Lynn and John are gracious hosts who share their comfortable home (and dog!) with a feeling like you are instant family. The B and B is within walking distance of Lunenburg's main area, so we never needed a car (or parking spot!) while there. The breakfast they provided always included several items so you never went away hungry! Our room... More

We stayed in the family room with our two children on an overnight trip to Lunenburg, and were pleased to find the reviews of this B&B lived up to our expectations. Our kids were particularly delighted by the watchtower at the top of this beautiful character Victorian house. The family room, a former nursery, was bright with pretty linens and... More

One nite stop for two couples from Boston and Denver as we traveled around NS. Great hosts with wonderful breakfast food- terrific advice about local routes for next part of our trip and time in the area- great local restaurant advice. Stay here if you're in the area....

Lynn and John are absolutely wonderful hosts. They have a lovely home with lots of fun stories that they are eager to share. Our room on the third floor was so worth the trek up three flights of stairs - the little sitting room just outside our door and access to the fourth floor 'widow's watch' made it extra special....

Our family of 4 had the pleasure of staying at the Ashlea House for 5 nights. John and Lynn were absolutely wonderful. Very welcoming and quick to answer questions. Prior to arriving, I must have emailed Lynn a dozen times with questions on how to best plan our week in the area. She answered each email with a wealth of... More

We had a wonderful stay in June with Lynn and John at the Ashlea house. It is in great proximity for walking to town and various restaurants and also the pub. It was enjoyable to be able to do this after driving. They suggested a few places to eat, provided maps and directions and we were NOT let down in... More

I almost didn't write this because it has all been said before. However, I have to chime in even if it is to validate all of the positive comments from other reviewers. I recently stayed her with two friends. We are NOT morning people. Personally, I like to sleep in and don't want to talk to anyone before 10 am.... More

We were on a very short trip and could only stay 1 night. If there is a next time we would definitely stay longer. We thoroughly enjoyed the 'family' style breakfast in the morning. Met the other guests and had a good time talking as well as enjoying the excellent food. Ashlea House is ideally situated to walk anywhere in... More

In April, my wife and I were planning a late June driving tour through Nova Scotia and decided to spend two nights in Lunenburg. Ashlea House B&B had received great reviews from other Trip Advisor members so we decided that would be the place to stop. It was a very good move. The B&B has a wonderful street presence (you...
