“So wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We had such a wonderful stay! The home exudes peace and serenity and we loved listening to the sounds of the koi pond and breeze passing through the surrounding trees. Our suite was immaculate and so comfortable and clean. Robin made us feel very welcome as did his 2 dogs Benson and Bedford who we just adored. The bed was one of the best we have slept in (we even found the name of the mattress as we want to purchase such a bed upon returning home, it was that comfy!). Breakfast was excellent! We were very happy with our choices (blueberry pancakes for my husband, I had the smoked salmon) and loved the fresh fruit and coffee. Everything about our stay exceeded our expectations and would recommend Wellshire to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing experience. Thank you Robin! We will see you again on our next trip to Lunenburg!

We loved our stay at the Wellshire B&B. Thank you Robin - you are an amazing host. The smoked salmon for breakfast was fabulous ! Our only regret was that we only stayed one night. We highly recommend this B&B. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Best B&B in the entire province. My only suggestion is that you stay more than one night if pos...

There's a reason the Wellshire B&B has been rated #1 in Lunenberg. Presided over by Robin, a very charming, warm, and thoughtful host, it is simply the best B&B in every way: decor, location, amenities, food, and beverages. My husband and I spent one night, but easily could have stayed longer. Our room was perfectly appointed with beautiful furniture, a marvelous bed with lovely linens, flowers, fruit, snacks, and bottled water. Robin provided a breakfast menu from which we "crafted" our breakfast choices and he delivered each of us exactly what we requested, including a large press pot of perfectly brewed coffee. Robin's gardens are creative, colorful and welcoming and his two golden labs are fabulous. We could not have been more satisfied with our stay at the B&B and our visit to Lunenberg. Thanks so much, Robin.

Room Tip: There are two rooms. Ours had a beautiful bathroom with a soaking tub.

We spent only one night at this wonderful B&B and could have stayed a month. Our host, Robin, made us feel right at home. His breakfasts were fabulous and the rooms were perfect... clean, comfortable, and spacious. Robin has thought of everything in making his B&B absolutely the best B&B ever. We had the added pleasure of meeting the lovely designer and architect of the house, which was magnificent. Outside, we were welcomed by a lovely garden and Koi and goldfish pond. The location made for an easy 50 yard walk to a grand view of the harbor and countryside, and a walk (or short ride) to the sights and sounds of a once bustling fishing town, now less bustling but not less interesting. Shops, restaurants, and sights are a vacationers paradise. Thanks Robin.

This is a very lovely Bed and Breakfast! Extremely clean and completely renovated with a very nice design with attention to detail. They completely thought of everything.......milk and cream in the mini fridge in the room, a Tassimo coffee maker with tea and coffee in room, fresh flowers, fresh apples, lovely bedding with a choice of pillows (memory foam, neck pillow) as well as a bed heating pad Also, heated towel rack in bathroom and on and on. There also is a very nice outside area and you can enjoy the fish in the pond. To top it off you are given a menu to choose your breakfast from. Breakfast was very tasty and filling, no piddley servings here! We were very pleased and will definitely be back again. The host was very kind and thoughtful

Tami and Kirk Maye

Room Tip: You can here the water from the outside pond from room #2, it is very soothing

We stayed at Robin's B&B on September 19th.My sister and her husband had stayed there this summer,and we went with them this time.The house is very beautiful,tasteful.The decor makes you feel right at home.
Robin is very professional,yet very down to earth.He stayed with us for a drink in his beautiful back yard.at supper time.He recommended different places to have supper.I love dogs and he had two retrievers,very friendly and well mannered.
I can,t say enough about the bedrooms.He has 2 very modern ,big bedrooms upstairs,equipped each with bathrooms,one in one room,the other just outside,beautiful,like an expensive hotel.A coffee pot,complimentary fruits ,chocolate,bars.We even had a menu to choose for the breakfast the next morning.And what a breakfast it was.All made by him,fresh as can be and each our own French press coffee pot.He sat with us wich I really loved.
This man knows how to welcome guests and a plus is his accent from England that we really loved.
Keep up the great work Robin.We'll be back. Jackie & Paul

Room Tip: There are only 2 bedrooms but both of them are great.
