“Plenty of wow factor!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

What a lovely place. Everything is brand new and top of the line. Beautifully decorated! Robin (and Charlene) is so kind and thoughtful. A delight to visit with. He has two dogs (which you will never see nor hear unless you want to) that are so sweet and cuddly. We stayed in room 2 and have fallen in love with the rain shower. A remodel of our own bath is now planned to resemble this bath. Nice touches such as a heated mattress pad, luxury linens and memory foam pillows. Robin's breakfasts are top-notch. We felt very comfortable and at home here. The rate was incredible for such a high class accommodation. We actually felt bad about paying so little for what we were given. Thanks so much, Robin and Charlene!

Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor before arriving to Wellshire, I had very high expectations. These expectations were exceeded in every way! I concur with everything said in all of the 5 star ratings that have been posted before mine, and would fully recommend a stay with Robin in his beautiful home to anyone I know.

Everything about this B&B was a five star experience at a three star price. Robin is the perfect host and has provided real luxury living--even a washer and dryer! He is a superb cook and we had a wonderful time; wish we could have stayed longer.

My husband and I just came back from celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary at the Wellshire Inn. We loved it there! Robin is a wonderful host and takes care of every little detail - from the chocolates on our bed, to the water in the fridge to the lovely robes and slippers in the bathroom. The rooms are lovely and the backyard with the fish pond and zen-like setting is a great place to relax. We had a choice for breakfast and we were not disappointed. What a wonderful meal! No need for lunch when you eat breakfast at the Wellshire. Within walking distance of Lunenburg Waterfront, you can't go wrong staying here. We'll definitely come back

excellent accommodations with great recommendation on dinner. The B&B is quaint with modern touches that make you feel right at home. We were given options for breakfast vs a fixed menu, this was a nice surprise. we had wished we could pay with visa as we had reserved on the card but then cash was required for payment that we did not realize until time to settle up.

We stayed at the Wellshire Bed and Breakfast over Thanksgiving weekend and we very much enjoyed this stylish and comfortable house. The outdoor area is equally as nice and gave us a perfect spot to relax in the sun with the soothing sound of the pond in the background. Robin was great from the time we inquired on the b & b until we pulled out of the driveway on our way back home. The breakfast was fabulous with all the extra special touches and details anyone could ask for. We can't wait to go back to this area and to visit this place again.
Thanks again for the great get-away Robin!

Our host, Robin, was the best. He made us feel so welcome and was very gracious in allowing us to be ourselves while staying at this very charming B&B. The exterior is restored Victorian, but inside all the modern amenities and space welcome you. The retreat at the back of the property was a relaxing space to enjoy a glass of wine and good conversation with Robin and other guests. All of Lunenburg is within walking distance and the neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful. We would return here in a heartbeat. Our room was spacious, bright and tastefully decorated with a contemporary flair. We enjoyed our stay very much, it was just too short and we hope to enjoy the Wellshire for a longer stay in the future. Benson and Bedford, the two dogs who call this place home, were a joy to have around. Never too friendly, they brought a different element to relaxation as they lay around in the backyard ready to greet all who came by in a calm manner.
