A port town on Nova Scotia’s South Shore, Lunenberg is a National Historic District and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. A strong Maritime culture prevails in Lunenberg’s “Old Town”, which has cottage rentals scattered among the village’s brightly coloured heritage buildings and historic waterfront.
A local trail system provides opportunities for hikers and bikers, while boaters, canoeists, and kayakers make use of the area’s sandy beaches and secluded coves. After working up an appetite from an afternoon of outdoor adventure, feast on fresh Atlantic fare at the town’s restaurants and pubs and take a jaunt through the town’s local art galleries.
Only an hour’s drive southwest of Halifax, Lunenberg is a one-of-a-kind coastal community and a popular place to rent a cottage in Nova Scotia.+ More
