The Wellshire Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 26 Lunenburg B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 29, 2013

This was our second visit to the Wellshire and it was as wonderful as the first time.
If you are looking for a B&B that is spotlessly clean, has everything you need, modern conveniences in a beautifully rebuilt B&B all with a wonderful host and a fabulous breakfast..this is the place.

The beds are so comfortable and the service so great we didn't want to leave!

Thank you Robin for another great visit. We will be back soon!

(ps the Wellshire Lox is fabulous!)

My husband and I stayed at the B and B for a wintry weekend getaway in January. Even though Lunenburg is very quiet at this time of year our stay was wonderful. The location is in walking distance of the spa and local restaurants. We felt pampered as soon as we arrived. The room was warm and cosy and the bed extremely comfortable. The breakfast included a great deal of choice and was scrumptious. Dietary restrictions are catered for. Robin is an extremely good host and takes such great care of his guests. We'll be back soon!

Absolutely no detail overlooked in this warm, inviting B&B. From a variety of pillows to choose from on your bed, fresh little pitchers of both milk and cream in the ensuite mini fridge for coffee in your room in the morning, towel warmer in the ensuite, to a glass of wine on arrival, Robin's hospitality and attention to detail is second to none. The house blends historical character and contemporary design and is impeccably clean. Very comfortable bed, delicious breakfast with numerous options to choose from and same attention to detail in the table setting.

If you are an animal lover, don't leave this place without meeting Benson and Bedford, Robin's sweet yellow labs. But, as another review stated, if you're not an animal lover not to worry, they do live in a separate part of the house.

'The' place to stay in Lunenburg without a doubt.

Stayed there for a great weekend with my wife. The house had a traditional exterior look and a fashionable interior decoration. My personal favorite was the English breakfast Robin provided. I have been to many hotels while traveling. A clean environment is the most important thing to me. I was very happy with the place.

My wife and I together with my sister-in law and her husband stayed here September 22 and 23. We had been traveling through Newfoundland and Nova Scotia for nearly five weeks staying at various highly rated B&B's and The Wellshire Inn topped them all. The house has two guest bedrooms upstairs which was perfect for two couples traveling togeher. The bedding was very comfortable and the bath fixtures modern and high quality. Robin was a very warm and accomodating host. He offers a great breakfast with several choices of hot dishes and plenty of fresh fruit and delicious organic coffee brewed in a french press. He provided good suggestions for local restaurants and activities. Cookies and coffee/tea are available for afternoon or evening snacking. Ask him to point out his beautiful artwork in the living area...and ask him about his dog Bedford's recent encounter with Tom Brokaw and Meredith Viera!

Actually hate to share how lovely our stay was as I would like to keep it a secret, however Robin is such an excellent host and runs such a fabulous B&B I have to share.
Clean, beautiful, well appointed, fabulous host, delicious breakfast, excellent location, what more can we say. We are regulars to Lunenburg and now will only be staying here at the Wellshire Bed and Breakfast.



Located in the heart of the UNESCO district, walking distance to everything.
We were here to watch the relaunch of the Bluenose II and could not be more pleased to have found this most excellent Bed and Breakfast

My husband and I stayed here Sept 3rd and it was supposed to be for one night. After walking around Lunenburg and having such a great host we decided to stay another!
This was the highlight of our first trip to Nova Scotia. Robin is a great host and the house is beautifully decorated. We had a delicious breakfast which kept us full most of the day!
My husband now wants to take out our bathtub and replace with the beautiful shower.
We will be back again one day. Highly recommend this to anyone!
