Gentle Hospitality¦Vintage Maritime Style
This is what you will find at the Boscawen Inn. Slip happily into the quiet heritage of this historic inn and be immersed in one of the original stories of Lunenburg.
An architectural landmark named for Admiral Edward Boscawen, you can't miss this lovely Queen Ann style mansion on the hillside. Overlooking Lunenburg Harbour and the Old Town below, with the sea beyond and the leafy shade of Parade Square Park in our back yard, this is a special place to stay. Just 3 short blocks up from the docks and the crowds, you'll get the best of both worlds.
With 16 beautifully decorated Victorian guest rooms, the choice is yours to have a view of the ocean or the gardens and park across the street. Included in your stay are complimentary tea and coffee supplies in your own room plus a delicious breakfast served in the dining room each morning.
Our fully licensed Inn features dining events throughout the season. Elegant parlours and Boscawen's Pub offer wonderful venues for weddings and special events up to 100 guests.
And don't miss the Deck: this closely guarded secret is the perfect place to meet at the end of a day of exploring to raise a glass with fellow travellers from around the world.
Get in touch with your seaside
The Boscawen Inn is located in the heart of "Old Town" Lunenburg, a picturesque fishing town in Nova Scotia, Canada. Lunenburg is one of Nova Scotia's most historic and beautiful towns.
Lunenburg's colourful waterfront, narrow streets and captivating architecture radiates the flavour of the town's seafaring heritage. Dozens of historic buildings and homes dating back to 1760 have been beautifully maintained and the streets still follow the original Town plan of 1754. This dedicated level of preservation led to Lunenburg's Old Town being designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995.
One of the best aspects of Lunenburg is that, unlike many tourist destinations, this is still an authentic working harbour: fishing boats and boat builders line the waterfront and many locals still make their living here in traditional maritime ways.
At just 55 minutes from Halifax, Lunenburg is an easy weekend getaway, a perfect business retreat destination and a must-see stop in your tour of Nova Scotia's gorgeous South Shore.
In a world of homogeneous â??boutique hotelsâ? and featureless rooms, we like to think that the Boscawenâ??s storied history and architectural detail offers a little personality and a bit of the past, while still providing you with warmth, comfort and value.
The Boscawen Inn welcomes you with a choice of fifteen different guest rooms on three floors. We offer a variety of room configurations including spacious and romantic Turret Suites, family-friendly Queen and double rooms and perfect-for-sharing Twin rooms. Eight rooms have harbour/ocean views. The other seven feature Parade Square Park views and lovely neighbourhood heritage homes.
All rooms feature big windows, lots of light, cosy and simple Victorian décor and 3 or 4-piece ensuite bathrooms. One of our Turret Suites features a large, corner Jacuzzi Tub. Many rooms feature real, wood-burning fireplaces to curl up beside with a glass of wine and a good book.+ More
