Ashlea House B&B

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 August 2013

Having never have tried a b&b before I think my husband and I both agreed that it was one of our most memorable vacations. John and Lynn are the most wonderful hosts, the home is stunning, the gourmet breakfast is to die for, and the fun is on the house! Even the location is wonderful as you can easily walk to the uptown area and local restaurants, and pubs (which John and Lynn are happy to recommend) You should definitely give it a try!

Gorgeous old Victorian mansion. We were on the top floor - well worth the extra $$. Quiet, charming. Breakfast was extraordinary - truly fantastic, while our hosts pointed out the local "must-sees". Fabulous porch where we enjoyed a bottle of wine pre-dinner. I don't usually like B&Bs but this was better than most hotels we have stayed in and certainly one of the top two in our 11 days trip. Loved it - we should have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Top floor with the Queen bed straight ahead at the top of the stairs - a bit extra $$$ but worth it

We never write review for these sorts of things, but my husband & I had such a fabulous stay here that we just had to tell others about it! The owners are great - they are so friendly and are ready to tell you all you want to know about Lunenburg. The breakfast was amazing! The rooms were clean and beautiful.
Ashlea House was great!

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!
