In April, my wife and I were planning a late June driving tour through Nova Scotia and decided to spend two nights in Lunenburg. Ashlea House B&B had received great reviews from other Trip Advisor members so we decided that would be the place to stop. It was a very good move. The B&B has a wonderful street presence (you like it immediately) and is well maintained and conveniently located near the center of town. The common areas inside are very bright, open, and nicely furnished and decorated. Our room (Cottage Room) was on the third floor (not a problem for us but could be difficult for people in poor health or with physical limitations). But, with that said the room was great. It was extremely clean with an en suite bath and a very comfortable queen size bed. The quality of the B&B was perfectly paired with the quality of the hosts (John and Lynn). Breakfasts were served at 8:30 AM for all guests: “Family Style”, hearty, filling, and totally enjoyable. Coffee was available at 7:30 AM so that guests (like me) can come down and get a morning starter to bring back to the room (which I always like to do when my wife and I travel). John and Lynn facilitate the breakfast table discussion and ensure that all questions are clearly answered. Plus, their obvious enjoyment in interfacing with guests is apparent. The good natured humor that they weave into the morning discussions is a great way to start the day. For my wife and me, Lunenburg turned out to be a wonderful stop on our route around Nova Scotia and Ashlea House (with John and Lynn as the Innkeepers) turned out to be the “icing on the cake”. It is an exceptional B&B and totally deserving of the excellent ratings that it receives.
