We chose the Rum Runner for a 2-night stay, largely because of location and because we didn't wish to stay in a very small B&B, which most in Lunenburg seem to be.

Rooms were clean, spacious, and modern, but surprisingly sterile for such a great location. The innkeeper touted the glassed-in balconies on our adjacent rooms, which did have a great view of the harbor, but we quickly found that because the partitions between balconies did not go all the way to the ceiling it was impossible to have a private conversation out there.

Since breakfast was not included in the room price, we felt that the price was a bit high for so late in the season (last half of September), particularly because sales taxes are very high and no longer refundable to foreign tourists.

The mediocre in-house restaurant is under separate management and does not serve breakfast, but happily there are excellent options just down the block. We were surprised to encounter quite strong cooking odors in the stairwell leading to our room, even the morning after when the restaurant was closed.

A final point - the inn has no off-street parking, so during the day you must occupy a metered space out front. The innkeeper is quite willing to stoke the meter with $1 coins (which you provide, of course) but it can add up.

Loved this room. Overlooked the harbour where the Blue Nose was docked when we were there. The staff was extremely friendly, and caring. The room was very big, with the king sized bed & couch, coffee table and very clean. Extra bedding, and pillows were in the closet, handy if needed. The bedding was not your average hotel bedding and was very homey - comfortable. Had our own deck to sit out and overlook the harbour. Had supper downstairs which was fantastic and the front desk staff checked in on us in the restaurant to see how things were. Very personal touch. Upon arriving back in our room, we found a breakfast basket on the coffee table, containing juices, fruits, and muffins for the morning. A very personal touch in our opinon of their caring for their guests. Fridge for our drinks, and coffee/tea maker. Would definately stay here again - even for the price - was worth the view to see the boats docked for the night.
