Very close to the main part of town - 10 minute walk. Stayed on the top floor - the room was perfectly clean, very nicely decorated, comfortable bed, and great amenities. They had 2 adorable dogs - I only interacted with them because I asked two, but they are very respectful of guests and keep them separate. Gave great recommendations... More

Our family had two rooms - our front room on the second floor was quite large, as was the room on the third floor. The bathrooms were small with bath tub/shower. Only room for one person to use at a time. Breakfast was at 8:30 am and served family style. Very good and filling. John & Lynn are wonderful hosts... More

My wife & I had a enjoyable visit to Lunenburg during our week long trip to Nova Scotia. We had intentionally not booked our last couple of nights' lodging wishing to travel at our leisure. We were lucky enough to call the Ashlea House & very fortunate that they had availability for one night during the height of summer travel... More

Clean room, walking distance to restaurants, great breakfast, neat widow's walk and back deck. Very friendly place. The breakfast was hearty and delicious. Beautiful old home with lovely gardens. Interesting books about the towns history.

This was by far one of the nicest B & B's we have ever stayed at. The house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The owners were friendly, knowledaglable about the area and very helpful. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend staying at the Ashlea House if you are in the area. If I could give it... More

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful 1880's home on the historic register. We were literally across the street from the Harbourwalk into downtown Lunenburg, so we didn't even have to move our car while we were there. The rooms have old-fashioned charm in keeping with the historic presence, but updated with modern conveniences. Comfy bedding and pillows. Seating area... More

We spent a night at the beautiful property that is Ashlea House in Lunenburg. John and Lynn were gracious hosts, the room was comfortable, and the family-style breakfast was delicious and great fun. I would love to visit Lunenburg again, and would look for a vacancy here.

We loved our immaculate, spacious, air-conditioned room on the 3rd floor. Just next to our room was a lovely, comfortable sitting room with balcony, where you could enjoy a book, movie, or just peace and quiet. We never once felt " hemmed in" as there is ample room to roam in this beautiful heritage home. We particularly enjoyed walking up... More

This was a beautiful historic home lovingly converted to a B&B. The entry way is spectacular and the room we stayed in was large and comfortable. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic! One of the best breakfasts we had on our trip. A great choice in Lunenburg.

Many of Nova Scotia's Victorian inns have a good vibe. Maybe an aura lingers from the happy families who've lived there over the years, or perhaps it's the subtle feng shui of a well-designed and solidly built house. Either way, Ashlea House has a welcoming feel. The main floor rooms are ornately and lavishly wall-papered, which I quite like, but... More
