Reviewed 19 August 2013

We just returned from an amazing one night at the Ashlea House. Located in beautiful Lunenburg, we had the privilege of staying in this clean, lovely Victorian home. John and Lynn are warm, friendly and gracious hosts. We had a great breakfast. Our room was very clean and with great atmosphere

Ashlea House, in the heart of Lunenberg, was the perfect home-base for our three-days of relaxing, dining, and adventuring. Its beautifully appointed adjoining parlors offered a quiet spot to sip delicious pre-breakfast coffee, read a bit, and then chat with other guests gathering for breakfast. Ahhh, the breakfasts! Hosts John and Lynn prepared delicious dishes of amazing variety and entertained us with lively stories on the history of Ashlea House and life in Nova Scotia. They gave us excellent dinner recommendations, tips on things to see in Lunenburg and ideas for places to go in the surrounding area. Coming home to the warm and quiet atmosphere of Ashlea House was a perfect way to end our busy days.

We just returned from an amazing three nights at the Ashlea House. Located in beautiful Lunenburg, we had the privilege of staying in this clean, lovely Victorian home. John and Lynn are warm, friendly and gracious hosts. Our two boys (ages 7/10) absolutely loved their adjoining room decorated in a nautical theme with their own twin beds,TV, children's movie collection and games. John and Lynn were very welcoming of our family. The breakfast was fantastic and a great opportunity to learn the History and local tourist destinations. The gardens and outdoor gazebo are phenominal. The home is well kept up and reflective of the time period. Ashlea House is in close walking distance of the town and the boys were even able to enjoy the local pool and beaches. We will certainly stay here again and recommend this B&B. It was our favorite accommodation on our 13 day trip in Nova Scotia. The house is very clean and they take a lot of pride and joy in their home.

Room Tip: We booked well in advance as this was a popular Bed and Breakfast. I would highly recommend the fam...

We had a most excellent overnight stay at Ashlea House. We stayed in the family suite, which provided a lovely room for the two of us, and a separate room (with two single beds) for our son. He even had his own t.v., and several seasons of The Simpsons, which pleased him immensely. Ashlea House was perfect for us. We climbed to the widow's walk, and sat on the seat with the provided binoculars, looking out to the water. We also spent quiet time in the lounge on the main floor, reading about Nova Scotia Duck Tollers (we are getting one this fall, and were interested in meeting Schooner, a great ambassador for the breed). The beds were superbly comfortable (as was the air-conditioning), and the breakfasts awesome!! This place is on our list for next year, and the year after that . . .

Room Tip: Families should choose the special suite--two rooms, three beds, two t.v.s!

Ashlea House is everything an excellent bed and breakfast inn should be. The hosts, John, Lynn and Schooner the dog were welcoming and very helpful, giving us lots of tips for things to do in the Lunenburg area and very good advice on what restaurants to visit. The house is amazing. We were fortunate enough to stay in the adult side of the family suite and it was very comfortable with lots of antiques and collectibles to look at. The breakfast was unforgettable, with something for everyone, including some long-time family favorites.
I have no hesitation in recommending the Ashlea House and promise that we will be back.

We had a wonderful week in Lunenburg. Our stay at Ashlea House was amazing. The hosts Lynn and John were great and the breakfasts were fabulous. Discussions around the breakfast table were hilarious. Our hosts Lynn and John were warm and friendly and the house was just beautiful.

John and Lynn were great hosts, hospitable and helpful. Our room was comfortable and cosy. So was their stunning victorian house. The homemade breakfast was amazing. We recommend Ashlea House without any hesitation. We will be back!
