We were in Lunenberg for the Boxwood festival and chose this B&B based on its location and the reviews.
We were quite pleased with our choice.
The home and grounds are well-tended, with lovely gardens and a large number of comfortable and pleasant common areas. The wi-fi was spotty when we were there, so we used the computer in the common office area. We kept items in the fridge downstairs, and many nights we had a glass of wine on one of the outdoor seating areas.
We stayed in the Cottage Room, and we were glad to have all of the space for our long stay. We could see the harbor from our third-floor window (although you have to look past the building across the street).
We walked everywhere in town, and the location was perfect. We had very easy access to everything we wanted to see.
Lynn and John were quick to give recommendations and advice about activities and restaurants. They were knowledgeable and friendly at all times. At breakfast every morning they gave us Lunenberg history stories and tales of the quirky nature of the town's residents.
They were such good hosts that they tried to serve us a different breakfast every day for EIGHT days! And Lynn remembered my favorites and brought the bowls around for seconds without me asking.
They have two very friendly dogs, but they were careful to keep them away from guests who weren't dog people.
We parked our car right in front of the house with no problems.
We would recommend this B&B and definitely stay again.
