Guest Testimonials

We've had a wonderful time here. It is a beautiful cottage and well-equipped. You really own a lovely property! The cottage was perfectly clean when we arrived. Thank you cleaning lady! This is our first time in Nova Scotia. We loved to spend relaxing days with out children at Carter's Beach, The weather was wonderful-sunshine and warmth. A place we can recommend is the pub at the Lane's Privateer Inn in Liverpool. Extremely friendly staff, great burgers, good beer. Thanks for a perfect holiday at your cottage.

Sam, Max and I spent a day in Lunenburg exploring the Fisheries Museum and the harbour front.
Tall Ships are moored in Lunenburg.
This rocking Dory was a huge hit with my two young fishermen.
The Bluenose II is a replica of the famous Bluenose Schooner - the celebrated racing ship and hard-working fishing vessel, that held the International Fisherman's Trophy for 17 years in a row. (1921-1938)


Lunenburg is one of the best surviving examples of a planned British colonial settlement in North America. Founded and established in 1753, the town is named in honour of the Duke of Braunschweig-L√ľneburg who later became King George II of England in 1727. Lunenburg has retained its original layout and overall appearance, based on a rectangular grid pattern drawn up in the home country. The plans were created without regard to local topography, which is why Lunenburg's streets are always straight and sometimes dizzyingly steep. If you are of limited mobility or are pushing a heavy stroller, it may be too much for you. Historic homes and buildings that date back to the 1700s have been renovated and now house restaurants, shops and galleries. The extraordinary preservation of the Town's architecture earned it the designation of an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. There is plenty to do in Lunenburg. Go for a horse and buggy ride around the town or take a walking tour; have a lobster lunch or take a fishing charter. Make sure you set aside time to visit the Fisheries Museum. There are plenty of excellent restaurants.


Lunenburg is approximately an hour and a half drive from Shelburne (125 km/78 miles) a 50 minute drive from Liverpool (60 km/38 miles) and an hour and 15 minutes from Halifax (95 km/60 miles).
