I only had the privilege to spend one night at the Addington Arms Bed and Breakfast in Lunenburg, but that just gives me added incentive to come back again and again.
I spent a week exploring Nova Scotia, and this property provided, by far, the best accommodations I had the entire time. The owners, Dan and Chris, were warm, friendly and welcoming from the moment I stepped in the door. I booked the Spankersail Suite, which was superlative in its amenities and its beachy decor--it made me feel quite at home in this historic seaside town.
The amenities include a parkling clean, private bathroom with jet-air tub, queen-sized bed, sitting room with leather couch and armchair, fully equipped with TV/VCR, candles, reading material, and bedside sound therapy. I could have spent an entire week there!
I dined the next morning in solitary splendor (I was the only guest at the time) in a lovely dining room, on superlative, fresh food cooked by Dan (an omelet sprinkled with fresh chives from the garden)--my compliments to the chef .
The hosts are very accommodating and their hospitality was superb. I truly hope to return some time.
Lunenburg is an amazing town--a UNESCO World Heritage Site--and worth taking some time to explore.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Addington Arms B&B sits atop 2 fine art galleries and atop the six square block historic district of this UNESCO world heritage site, affording ocean views from all of our suites and room. Shopping, dining and exploring are all just steps outside your front door. We are not your typical B&B but more akin to a boutique hotel, with stocked mini fridges, TV's and en-suite steam-rooms with aroma therapy or an air-jet tub in very spacious surroundings. On-site parking is available as street parking is problematic in the summer months. Our breakfasts are as memorable as the town of Lunenburg itself. ... more less
