“Watch out for parking...”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Great view on the harbor, the room was clean but it can be difficult to find a parking and then you have to pay the parking machine, except the week end.

The bed was realy smooth, so smooth that my head was a little bit lower than my feet and the pellow was a bit firm.

Felt well welcome.

Room Tip: Have a room the week-end, do your visit during the morning, before 10h (bus tour...) or after 18h. V...

Wonderful small inn located in heart of downtown Lunenberg -- a quaint little fishing-tourist village on Nova Scotia's Mahone Bay. Close to several good eateries and local, but touristy, shops. Very comfortable room -- we had the Spinnaker Suite, a two-story, king suite with sofa bed. With air conditioning. Be sure to get Inn Keeper Christina Stubbs to tell you about the Spinnaker's movie connections, and make sure you listen to her restaurant and entertainment advice. She's knows her Lunenberg. Great place. Hope we get the chance to go back one day ... soon.

We stayed at the Spinnaker Inn in June. We stayed in the Spinnaker suite. The bedroom was really roomy, and having the kitchen area downstairs gave us a real feeling of space. The suite was well appointed and was in a superb position in Lunenburg. Lots of restaurants within easy walking distance.
I would recommend this suite to anyone wishing to stay in Lunenburg.

Room Tip: I didnt see the other rooms, but would definately recommend the spinnaker suite.

Arriving in Lunenburg on New Year’s Day, it’s hard to imagine a better way to start 2013. This was my first trip to Nova Scotia, and Lunenburg - and this Inn in particular - was the perfect place to unwind following a packed tour of Cape Breton Island. My partner and I stayed in the Spinnaker Suite – a split level room with kitchenette downstairs and a glorious king bed with jacuzzi tub en-suite upstairs. The upstairs room is large, and the wing back chairs strategically placed by the window, take advantage of the harbour view and the mesmerizing sunsets. Being the winter, many of the towns’ restaurants were closed, but thanks to Christina’s suggestion, we discovered the Knott Pub - clearly a favourite with the locals and a great room, rich in character, terrific food and truly reasonable prices. Also thanks to Christina’s suggestion, we discovered Blue Rocks and Mahone Bay, both short drives away during our two day stay. Lunenburg and its surrounding communities are quite simply jaw dropping, and this Inn was the perfect retreat following lazy days exploring.

In summary if you appreciate boutique hotels with impeccable furnishings, linens, quiet charm (only four rooms in this inn) plus an attention to detail that delights at every turn (chalk board suggestions in the hallway, coffee and other provisions in the room as well as books on local haunts) - all this and in the heart of ‘downtown’ - then the Spinnaker Inn is for you. Thank you Christina for your amazing hospitality, and hopefully we’ll see you again! Sophie & Scotty.

We spent 1 night at the Spinnaker Inn. Our room was lovely, we had avery nice view of the water and we were right downtown so it was handy to walk to most places we were interested in seeing. Very comfortable bed, clean room, very accomodating hostess. I would stay here again.

We chose the Spinnaker Suite, a 2 level spacious unit. A fully equipped kitchenette, kitchen set & pull out sofa on the first floor and a large bedroom suite with a king bed and a HUGE bath with both shower & spa tub on the second level! Our window overlooked the harbour & the location on Montague Street afforded us the luxury of walking everywhere in this historic town. Our Innkeeper Christine is a joy.!!!Didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back.

Checked in and met Chrissy. Chrissy was so helpful. Bed was spacious and comfortable with a view of the harbor. Lunenburg is such a beautiful city, sorry we only had 2 nights. Make sure and make the short drive to Blue Rocks. Spectacular area with many people selling crafts from their homes. One person was selling "lobster traps" and "tourist traps". Hope to return to Lunenburg someday and Spinnaker Inn would be our first choice for accomadations.
