My husband and I were in Halifax for a business conference and decided to take a couple of extra days vacation and wandered down to Lunenburg. What a find!!! We loved this tiny little town and especially loved our stay at the Mariner King, which we were so lucky to find.
We didn't have a reservation, but were immediately drawn to inn due to its magnificant architecture. Once inside we were not disappointed. All the common rooms are very tastefully decorated and the guest rooms are comfortable and welcoming. We decided on the King William Room (unfortunately the Suite was already reserved for the night), with a huge 4-poster bed and view of the harbour.
Breakfast the next day was amazing!! It started with the most delcious banana bread and fresh jam. Then came eggs florentine served with hollandaise sauce, breakfast sausage and a huge portion of fruit. Yummy!!!
I'd highly recommend the Mariner King and hope to return someday for an extended stay. Joan and Ted make you feel like you're at home, give lots of suggestions for places to go and things to do, but are never intrusive. I loved all the little details......wine in the rooms, fresh flowers all around, a rubber duck in the bathroom and chocolate cookies upon check-out.
