A very historic and real home on the pristine shore of Lunenburg Bay, Inexpensive and very enjoyable stay. Direct view of the water and colors of the sky & lobster boats are breathtaking at sunset. Breakfast was made to order with great local sausage and eggs.

I booked a night at this B&B two months in advance. I called in the morning of the arrival date to confirm the time just to find out that we don't have a room. We traveled all over Maritimes, booking B&B's and never had a issue like this. It seems that, in this case the owner's word is worthless.

Gorgeous views out over the water, a lovely breakfast and a very accommodating owner. Very economical and great value for money. I recommend without hesitation and suggest you request the pancakes for breakfast.

Where do I start. No heating and the room was cold. Room was very small. Very old beds and uncomfortable (back hurt next morning). Towels in bathroom hard and smelled very mouldy. Breakfast was horrible. Pans not clean. Eggs were brown on the bottom with old dirty grease. Owner joked that food may make you sick, and as well that he didn't care anymore what people thought of his place (not the best way to get return customers). Coffee was ok though. It's cheap but you get what you pay for!!

Barretts is a Special place, that not everybody will love. When you expect a modern B&B with all the amenities of the 21st century, it is not the right Destination for you. When you like Nova Scotian traditions, an authentic house and innkeeper - than it is the perfect spot for you. We spent weeks over the years there, we never had a better breakfast in the Maritimes - and we never could listen to better stories than Bills stories. Ask him about fly-fishing all over the world -he knows the spot to go to!

Located 10 kms south of Lunenburg on Lunenburg Bay, opposite side of the road of a small fishing harbour. When the Bluenose II is sailing, she sails right past the peninsula where Barrett's Bed and Breakfast is More located. Just a couple of kilometers up the road is the Ovens Nature Park, the site of Nova Scotia's gold rush in years gone by. The location is extremely peaceful with waterfront at the front and forest at the back. Less
