We completely agree with the previous reviews. The room was spacious, clean and had all the amenities you might want. Seafood meal was the best we had on our trip down east and Justin, our waiter, was as helpful with what we should eat as with suggestions on what to see. We felt very welcomed and privileged to have the...

We had a lovely view looking over the water and at the boats. The room was comfortable and spacious. The restaurant's seafood was awesome and I would highly recommend it with the Chef coming table side. The only challenge might be the stairs to get to the room we would absolutely come here again. We lovedour time walking thru Lunenburg.

Visited with my family in August and we had an amazing time here. It was such a family atmosphere right from check in, at the bar/restaurant and through to check out. The staff and owner went above and beyond to make sure our stay was incredible. The room was clean and comfortable. Food was great in the restaurant. It was...

We had a lovely room ... updated, very clean, roomy, and air-conditioned. Nice balcony overlooking the downtown and bay. We also ate at the restaurant (which was upscale with nice views as well). Staff offered good recommendations. The only downside was lack of parking. You either have to pay for a meter on the busy street (hard to come by),...

We stayed in two different rooms, one on the second floor with a sunroom (I would recommend this) and another on the first floor with a deck. Both had a gorgeous view overlooking the harbor. The deck room was a little noisier and once, when my husband was out with the key, I was able to get into my room...

We stayed here with our 11 month old for 3 nights. Tim and the crew were fantastic and catered to our every request (including borrowing a crib from a nearby BnB. The room and bed was very comfortable and excellent value. The location can't be beaten. Would definitely stay again.

Visited the rum runner inn with my family of 4 in mid August. We arrived late at night after taking owner Tims advice and going to Queensland Provincial Park Beach. This was a great recommendation like all others that were made by the staff of this jewel in Lunenburg. Room #3 had 2 double beds and a partial view of...

The Inn is very nice and has all the required amenities with pleasant staff. I would recommend anyone stay here. The location is however what it's all about. Lunenburg is quite the visual experience with friendly locals and lots to see. For a memorable maritime experience it would be a wise decision to stay in this fishing village. The feeling...

I cannot express what a wonderful stay we had. The service was beyond our expectations The owner was fantastic providing us with his full attention. He couldn't do enough for us. The restaurant was excellent. Five star. Food was fantastic. The Indian was delicious. Best there is. I think one of the best in Nova Scotia.
