“Very nice place”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Conveniently located above restaurant row. Nice room. Jenny made a great breakfast, some kind of quiche. It was really good. David was very friendly and helpful. Fun to sit in the widows watch and look out over the harbor.

There are many B&Bs in Lunenburg, but we're confident we chose one of the best. The location was extremely convenient, making it easy to pop back to our room when we forgot something or wanted to rest for an hour. We were bicycle touring and arrived early in the day. The owners kindly allowed us to store our bikes and use the place as a base to get organized. The house is extremely clean and well-appointed, and the hosts are generous and friendly. The breakfast I was excellent! We would definitely choose the Kaulbach House on any return visit.

Four of us stayed here overnight on July 18. The rooms are comfortable, with beautiful antiques. We were in two rooms on the second floor, overlooking the harbour. The hosts, David and Jenny, were terrific, with lots of suggestions about things to do and see in this beautiful town. Jenny made a wonderful breakfast--fruit, yoghurt, juice, croissants, rhubarb bread, and then a hot breakfast (fritata with sausage, bacon and tomato), all washed down with tea and coffee. The parking at the back was also nice. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor with harbour view are excellent. Lots of good restaurants nearby. We can...

This little B&B was a great place to stay while in Lunenburg. The owners are absolutely fabulous. We received a warm welcome and great information about activities and restaurants around the area. We stayed in the Ruby Room. The room had a small bathroom/shower that was built into what must have been a closet. The sink was in the corner of the bedroom. However, this wasn't a problem for us. The bed seemed a little bit old as it was quite creaky, but this suited the age and charm of this B&B. Breakfast was yummy (crustless quiche, bacon, tomatoes, fresh baked good, yogurt, juice). This is a great location for walking around Lunenburg. Please note that our room did not have a harbour view and I'm not sure about the others as this B&B is located 2 blocks up a very steep hill from the harbour.

Our stay at the Kaulbach House was wonderful. David and Jenny are both warm, friendly, and have a great sense of humor. The house is very well taken care of - clean and well-maintained, down to the last detail. Jenny's breakfasts were substantial and delicious, and David made us feel right at home. The room had everything we needed - coffeemaker, iron, toiletries, TV, wifi, air conditioning, and a view of the harbor. A small fridge was available and wine & beer glasses and a corkscrew were available. We never needed any housekeeping in our room, but I'm sure if we did it would have been taken care of without any problems. The room was quiet and it was great to have shutters to keep out the early morning sunshine. David was very helpful with advice about what to see and do, and directions on how to get there.

The only tiny details that I would change were the less-than-stellar showerhead and the hotel-style hairdryer, but those were minor hiccups and didn't detract from our stay. The Kaulbach House was a perfect place to stay in Lunenberg.

Room Tip: Dockside has a great view of the harbor.

As soon as David , the owner opens the door you know you are in comfort and home . I loved staying here . My husband john is not much for b&b but he is now open after our stay here .wonderful bright clean room on the top floor , delicious breakfast . I consider myself a coffee snob , ( if the first cuppa of the day isn't top drawer I am looking all day ) here at kaulbach the coffee is a divine way to start your day . AND his wife jane cooks gluten free if needed . Would I stay again , I won't stay anywhere else in area for next visit but at Kaulbach . Home away fr home in elegance .

Can't say enough good things about this B&B. The hosts are great. David took the time to orient us in town, offer dining suggestions and told us about places to visit.

We had a fantastic harbour facing room which was most spacious and comfortable. The bed was super comfortable and we got a great night's sleep. Very quiet location, even though you are in the centre of town. Take a few minutes to sit in the Widow's Watch and see what is going on in town. Great view.

You can walk all of old Lunenburg from Kaulbach House easily.

Breakfast was wonderful and filling.

Room Tip: Try to get a harbour-facing room, great view and the street is quiet.
