What can I say that has not already been said? Yes, the Boscawen Inn requires an investment of time and money but the new owners Judy and Jonathan are doing just that. They purchased the Boscawen Inn and have embraced the restoration as a labour of love, determined to restore the Inn to her original glory. The Inn was built as a Father’s gift to his daughter on her wedding day in 1888.
The pride of workmanship reflecting the era is visible everywhere. It is mind boggling when you consider that skilled artisans achieved this without the assistance of modern day tools. In 1995, the town was listed as a UNESCO Heritage Site World.
The breakfast reflected the beautiful room where we ate. It was delicious and plentiful but most of all it was relaxing just to sit and enjoy the luxuriousness of our surroundings. I would be remiss in not mentioning the views from this room and the Admiral’s deck. They were remarkable and one could only imagine Lunenburg’s history unfolding from these vantage spots.
Our biggest disappointment was that our itinerary did not allow another night as guests of the Boscawen Inn. The warmth and genuine sincerity from our hosts definitely enhanced our stay and helped create memorable moments.
Christmas Greetings from Victoria!
