Lunenberg is wonderful and we stayed here for 2 nights which seemed just the right amount of time.
This inn ranks amoung the most beautiful I have seen. crisp and clean decor with artful and whimsical touches.
Breakfast was similarly beautifully presented.
Our room was clean, spacious, and comfortable and I would certainly come here again if that where my only criteria.
The hosts need some training in customer service skills
If you are in need of warm hosts this will not do. (I generally do not care about this all that much.) When we arrived, we were greeted by the owner/host who acted more like a disgruntled worker who was just doing his job.
Mostly however, beware in the hot months. We stayed in the attic room which was a visual delight But the A/C is with out a doubt the worst. It faces an opposing hallway wall and so the air goes no where. We opened all the windows and that did nothing as well. The room was broiling.
when I asked for a fan in the room I was told (by the same unfriendly host) they do not have one. There was no effort to try to help me out or even an apology for my distress. Not even a suggestion that he give us a pitcher of ice water to bring up with us. Just a shrug of the shoulders.
Falling asleep was very difficult. The room looks like it will be warm enough in colder times and certainly, there were ample blankets...
Perhaps the owners are new since the last posts.
