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 15 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 Admiral’s 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.
A Lunenburg vantage point since 1888
This Victorian mansion was built in 1888 by Senator H.A.N. Kaulbach, one of the most influential figures in Lunenburg’s history, as a wedding present for his daughter, Edna, and son-in-law, James R. Rudolf. The mansion was designed by architect Henry Bush of Halifax and built on the Queen Anne style. It is Lunenburg’s best example of the Queen Anne style of architecture.
We are committed to preserving the heritage of this lovely Inn while offering a comfortable, elegant, warm and friendly venue for romantic weekends, weddings, family gatherings, social events and business meetings – many of the same things which would have been hosted here all those years ago.
And according to Freda, our long-time local concierge, Edna Kaulbach’s gracious and friendly ghost enjoys every minute of the guests who come and go from her home!
