Staying for nine days with our hosts Lorne & Janet who are the proud owners of a colonial style mansion located within a large quiet plot which they manage with aplomb, offering complete discretion & a fine attention to detail, Alicion is the epitome of B&B perfection, we say this having experienced quality B&B worldwide the Alicion is up there with the best. I could use so many superlatives, but why it's just superb, whoops...
Pre-visit researching of various Lunenburg, accomodation & subsequent later walking the town identified the Alicion, to be in a superior location to many other B&B's & hotels away from the traffic, hustle & the noise of small town Lunenburg, but only couple of minutes gentle walk from Lunenburg waterfronts attractions with it's varied restaurants & pubs.
Our room (Dragonfly) was large with an 'Oh so comfy" bed, an extremely large bathroom with a magnificent spa bath & walk in shower. As with the rest of this house our room was spotlessly. Lorne, heads up front of house & serves breakfast in the lovely dining room, we found breakfast tended to keep us going until dinner. The adjacent drawing room is a stylish haven of peace to retire, relax, read, or listen to music, perhaps with the odd drink or two. In balmy weather the verandah offered shade & peace.
Nine days still wasn't long enough to see the area in full, interestingly during our stay we met many fellow travellers over breakfast staying only a night or two, without exception all wished they had arranged a more prolonged stay, it seems Lunenburg's secret is to do just that, take in the area, its ambiance & all it has to offer, with his local knowledge Lorne, will ensure you are justly rewarded.
