A peaceful seaside destination in a woodland setting; just one minute from historic Lunenburg.You'll hear the waves lapping at the shoreline from your choice of accommodation - a cozy cottage, housekeeping unit, or comfortable motel room. In the morning have coffee on the beach or in our pond-site sitting area while the sea gulls and red-winged blackbird greet the day.Families will love the Atlantic View's ample green space and beach where children can run, play in the waves and swim. This is a perfect location for vacationing sea kayakers and cyclists, and golfers will have a spectacular and challenging nine-hole course just over the hill from us. Historic Old Town Lunenburg, designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its exceptional architecture, natural beauty and working waterfront, is only 1.5 km away.

We thought this place was always charming, clean and friendly, but the new owners have taken it up a few notches more. Our stay in August of 2019 felt like we were vacationing with friends / family. Then we returned August 2020 and discovered the cottages and motel rooms have all gotten a refresh inside and out. And it was the perfect place to stay during Covid. The socializing across the porches or in the firepit yard was safe and enjoyable. Watching the moon rise over the ocean, walking through the quaint town of Lunenburg and enjoying the fresh seafood ... could not ask for a better getaway.

We stayed in one of the cottages for 3 nights. We actually wanted a 5-night stay but they were sold out. I would love to return and spend at least two weeks in one of the cottages. The owner, Markus, was friendly and we enjoyed several conversations with him. We had everything we needed including fantastic views of the sea just across the road. Our cottage had a/c, kitchen necessities, a comfortable bed, and a porch with outdoor seating/table. You can walk across the road and access the rocky shore, made for a nice walk. A large fire pit and chairs face the sea. The location is ideal, less than 5 minutes from Lunenburg, but far enough to be super quiet. We loved everything about our stay.

We stayed in the queen suite and I loved the space. It was nicely decorated with a beautiful room. The man I spoke with in the office was very friendly and helpful.

Everything you might typically need is provided in the kitchen including coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, and even dish soap. My husband was disappointed not to have air conditioning and that the tv was small but neither of those are priorities for me so I was very pleased with the space.

The living space has a nice little couch and table and chairs. It was nice to have living space separate from the bedroom.

We arrived at the motel around 6:30pm (check-in had been indicated at booking to be between 6 and 7pm). One of the owners was very friendly, waved and said hello as we approached the office. The man who checked us in was extremely rude, saying "you're the last one" as he approached.

While my partner was the one paying for the room and asking questions, he refused to look at her and directed all questions and responses to me. When asked how the wifi was, as my partner had an important meeting the following morning, he replied "I have no idea".

Again at checkout, I went to drop the keys in the drop box. He shouted from his porch that he will take them as "we're going to have to clean the room".

Cute motel room. Small but with most amenities. Convenient to get to Lunenburg if you have a car but wouldn't recommend a walk with luggage. Otherwise extremely inhospitable host. Many friendly folks in Lunenburg to better give your business to.

The room is fine. The wifi is iffy. The motel is located just a few minutes beyond a high hill overlooking Lunenberg. This same high hill provides one of the best glimpses of old town Lunenberg. The motel itself does have nice views of the Atlantic Ocean as well as a pond behind the rooms.

Great little cottages, very clean. Owners are very helpful and even offered full access to their workshop and joined in to help repair a damaged trailer hitch on our Canam Spyder. Great location two minutes from Lunenburg with great riding.

We stayed two nights in July and were very happy with our stay. We had the Atlantic View, one of the bigger cottages and it had 2 double beds, a full kitchen, couch, closet area, full bathroom and beautiful covered deck with access to a BBQ. The owner was very accommodating.

These cottages are clean. Even the fridge was spotless. TV, internet and air conditioning! Located ready close to downtown Lunenburg. Oh there's a fireplace for those who can stay up late. :)

The Atlantic View is a gem of a little nest for relaxing between day trips in this part of Nova Scotia. We have stayed several times for multiple days both in the motel suite and in the Lily Pond cottage. We have appreciated the quiet, peaceful setting after visiting sites in the busy towns of Lunenburg and Mahone Bay. It is convenient for day trips to the most beautiful beaches on the South Shore. But on return, we equally enjoyed the more wild, natural rocky shore at Mason's Beach itself. A bonus surprise was seeing the Bluenose II sail into view around the point as it left Lunenburg harbour.
This is not a "ritzy" resort, if that's what you prefer. This is a charming, well-maintained, clean and very comfortable, cozy accommodation with a very homey feel and a most friendly staff.

We rented the blue cottage for 2 nights. It was cute and very clean. The only complaint we have is that the shower is tiny (so is the tv if that matters, which it did not for us). I don’t think that can be resolved due to the limited size of the cottage. Check in and check out was easy and efficient, albeit not particularly friendly. Location was good, but a car is necessary.

We would return to another cottage or room with a larger shower.

We were extremely happy to find this cottage at the last minute! It was incredibly clean, beautifully decorated and the location was terrific! It had everything we could possibly want. A huge bonus for us was how quiet it was and close to Lunenburg and Mahone Bay.
I hope to go back again!
