We were very comfortable for a three night stay at the Ashlea House. The house is a real Victorian time capsule, but with modern conveniences. John and Lynn are involved, friendly, and knowledgeable about Lunenburg and points beyond in Nova Scotia. Breakfast is hearty and delicious, served family style around a huge table. We'd definitely stay there again.

Ashlea House is a wonderful B&B . Bed is super comfy and an awesome breakfast is included. The B&B is an easy walk to downtown. The hosts are very friendly and helpful.If I am ever in the area again I would certainly stay here again but would select the 2nd floor as no elevator.

My daughter and I stayed on the 3rd floor in the front and had a very spacious and quiet room with our own bathroom. There was a loveseat and extra chairs for lounging as well as a television - all very welcome sights after a full day of travel. All of Ashlea House was beautifully appointed, clean and lovely.

This is the second time that we stay at Ashley House. The house it self is grand in nature yet offers a multitude of welcome facilities. The operators are both friendly and welcoming and go out if their way to provide for their guests. The breakfast is very special and offers a variety of choice.

We only stayed one night but it was definitely worth it. The location,parking,room and food were all excellent. Breakfast, hosted by the owner Lynn was a pure delight. All guests were asked to attend breakfast at the same time and a good time not to mention good conversation was had by all. The food was super!!

Stunning historical home in Lunenburg, a short walk from the waterfront and local restaurants. Clean, cozy rooms, super friendly owners and a family-style breakfast to die for! Stayed here for two nights while in town and really enjoyed our visit. Thanks Lynn and John!
