This is one of the finest, most beautiful, serene, spacious and tastefully appointed B&Bs we have ever stayed at. Lorne is a most gracious host.

D. and R., Pleasanton, California

Thank you so much. We loved our stay here. The room was beautiful and so comfortable. The breakfasts were amazing...I could have stayed longer.

Thanks again!!!

L.B., New York, New York

Of all the places we stayed, we felt most welcomed by both of you...You took an interest in us and shared something of yourselves as well. This is unusual, even for B&Bs. So we will have a special memory of Lunenburg.


Stupid mistake not to stay here longer!! Janet and Lorne have made us feel at home in less than 12 hours, in this beautiful and quiet house. Breakfast was fabulous and offers the best coffee in Nova Scotia (if not in English Canada).

We wish you all the best in this challenging proposal and from the very little we know of you, are convinced you'll do magic with this B&B. Salut!

M.N., Montreal, Quebec

I also want to thank you for a memorable stay and your lovely, clean, charming B&B. Unfortunately you spoiled us for the trip; in over 17 days, nobody made us coffee the way you did! Delicious!

A&F, Barkhamsted, CT

We couldn't have asked for a nicer experience. What a great breakfast Lorne made and Janet was great. Really enjoyed our stay!

J. and J. Cohen, Gainesville, Florida

Thank you so much for a most wonderful stay at the beginning of our honeymoon While we are excited about the rest of our trip, we're also a bit sad to leave this beautiful house, such wonderful hosts and this lovely town—delicious food and excellent travel recommendations...

What a divine place! The fruits of your (endless) labour. Thanks for being so kind to us—and in tantas idiomas.

N.W. , Toronto (here to sing at the Pearl)

A 5-star experience! We've reveled in the luxury of the Tamarack (Green) Room, relaxed on the verandah, appreciated your photography and loved the way you've integrated your former lives with the former lives of W.D. (William Duff) et al. Best of luck with your "greening" plans. My sister and I wll cherish this memory.

M.K., Santa Fe, New Mexico

What a magical place! Thanks for opening your home and hearts to us. We truly enjoyed being able to spend time with both of you, as well as Jackie and Fred, Roy and Cindy. We love meeting new people and having fun and interesting conversations. We will certainly come and visit you again, and we will stay in the Periwinkle room again. We love that room and bathtub! The wine was great, the breakfasts even better, but being with you all at the Alicion was the best!

T. and J., Chicago, IL

The house is filled with love and beauty and we were treated royally during our stay ruby fortune. We will remember this time fondly. Thank you for all your effort and care.....

What an enchanting home and setting! Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. The room and tub were fantastic.

A. and H., Vancouver, BC

The house is full of love and harmony. To stay here is not just an exceptional breakfast and a tasteful room, it is the possibility to share your kindness; your taste for beauty and nature. Thank you fro all your effort and care and sharing it with us.

D and D, France

Being here was a delightful experience. You were gracious and most efficient. The breakfast was wonderful!

J. and R., Salt Lake City, UT

Success in business means having the right product and the right attitude—you guys have both in huge quantities—well done, a great find.

J. and C., Christchurch, England

We had a wonderful stay! Everything was perfect and the breakfast was wonderful! It was nice to see where Senator Duff lived - a nice piece of family history for me. The photos around the house were absolutely gorgeous. Thank you both for everything!

JR and CM, Halifax, NS

Absolutely lovely home stay away from home. Your tase is evident in the warmth and invitation that your home exudes. A very lovely stay for all of us! Our best in Nova Scotia.

L.H. and R.H.

Wonderful people, wonderful B&B; in all of Canada I doubt there is a better cook than Janet! Thanks for the hospitality and kindness—we definately should have taken this country! [Host Comment: Most kind but Lorne is the chef and don't forget the War of 1812]
