WOW this was a great find. Michael & David were fabulous hosts. Michael did the cooking and David was the PR person who served the breakfast and chatted with the guests. We stayed 2 nights in Lunenberg and could have had longer as it is such a quaint little village. Do yourself a favour and stay with Michael & David... More

All around great place. You should stay here. The hosts were excellent and the room was perfect. Close to everything in the UNESCO area and there was port laid out every night when we returned. The restaurant recommendations the hosts made were spot on.

We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed it the most of any place we stayed on our 10 day trip (and we stayed a different place every day except Lunenburg). It was also the most amazing value. Very comfortable rooms, with access to a suntrap deck. The 2 course breakfasts are gourmet, and different everyday. The hosts are very welcoming... More

From the first contact with Michael and David, we had a great feeling about them. The breakfasts were amazing and I am, as my partner would say, a little fussy. We have a wheat sensitivity and whilst many places claim to be gluten free, they do it with gritted teeth and offer something similar to a piece of styrofoam. Not... More
