The Boscawen sits overlooking the beautiful harbor in the perfect location walking distance to everything. The staff is so nice and the inn is very well kept. We enjoyed the happy hour on the deck overlooking a stunning view of the town.

On arrival we were given a very warm welcome by the owner and this was extended throughout our stay by everyone at the Inn. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with all that was needed for our stay. Although there were no facilities for making a drink in our room, the refreshment station in the comfortable lounge was always... More

Great location, and great views of harbour. Delicious breakfast, friendly staff. Happy hour on deck in the sun was brilliant. Beautifully decorated. Close to restaurants and attractions. Would recommend for couples. Would be great wedding venue!

We stayed at the Inn in July 2016. We has a larger ground floor room, comfortable 4 poster bed, view of the water, ensuite bathroom. We had our daughter staying with us so we squeezed in a roll away bed too. Not ideal as the room isn't big enough for that. The TV was like a small screen computer monitor... More

The hotel has a great deck overlooking the harbor. Our room was large and comfortable with a separate (but private) bathroom (you can get ensuite, I think). Clean. Comfortable. Breakfast was the worst part. The usual cereal, coffee, fruit, etc, but on our first morning we were told that the "hot" breakfast was fried eggs with bacon. We're vegetarian so... More

This Inn was recommended to us by Aline at the visitor centre at Peggy's Cove. She also booked a room there for us. When we arrived John and Judy informed us there had been an error with our reservation so they would up grade us. They showed us 2 rooms that were available and let us chose which we preferred....

We stayed in the turret room and it was delightful. The view of the harbour were spectacular! The bed was very comfortable and we were able to open the windows at night. The host and hostess are very professional and helpful. Great location. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Would definitely recommend!

The Boscawen Inn is located a short walk from the quay side and close to all amenities and restaurants. The room was well decorated and clean; the complimentary aromatherapy toiletries were enjoyed very much. The public areas are very nice with period antiques; plenty of room to lounge if you wish. Shame the weather was not very pleasant during our... More

Thank you Judy and Jon for making us feel right at home. A big thank you also to Tony, Tania and the chef - all pleasant and very friendly staff. We definitely recommend a stay at the Boscawen Inn; we really enjoyed this Victorian house built in 1888 and our room was big and very comfortable. We stayed there 4... More

Classic antique furnishings at a historic property with a beautiful view on the deck overlooking the Lunenburg harbour. Service was exceptional, Jon and Judy really took care of us - even snapped a pic of the Bluenose returning from a sail tour we were on and emailed it to us. First class B&B, will definitely return.
