Loaded with Secrets Smugglers Cove was a great experience. It provides a personal touch big hotel chains cannot. The proprietor and staff are very friendly and helpful. It is perfectly located in the picturesque small city of Lunenburg. The rooms are very clean and accommodating. You can stay away from the hustle and bustle but still have a short 1 hr drive to Peggy’s Bay or Halifax.

My daughter and I spent a week touring Nova Scotia and our stop at Smugglers Cove was the cherry on top. We stayed in room 307 and the sleep and cleanliness of the room was a 10/10. Micheal and Rita were super Hosts and gave us the run down of town which included a history lesson and were to eat. I would highly recommend visiting this property for a great nights sleep and its central location made touring the town on foot easy. we will definitely stay there again on our next visit...Thank you Michael and Rita for a great two night stay!!

As soon as we pulled up, we had a not-so-good feeling. The inn's exterior paint was visibly peeling in many places. I have seen other reviews saying the interior was updated, but it sure looked somewhat dated to us. Our room, a standard double was small, basically Europe-sized, and that's OK -- just be prepared if your book a similar room. Our bed was very close to the hall, and any movement or activity there was easily heard. As is often noted, its location is outstanding, and as is also frequently mentioned, you must park on the street. The inn sits right on the edge of unmetered street parking, and we had no problem finding nearby free spaces in late September; I do not know if that remains the case during the heart of the tourism season. Lunenburg hotel and inn options were limited on the short notice when we booked, so we chose to stay here. If we were to return to Lunenburg, we would choose elsewhere.

10/10 location right in the heart of Lunenburg. A quick stroll away to all the main attractions. Staff was so friendly and the room was very clean and comfortable, spacious too. The hotel has great coffee as well. I had very enjoyable stay with friends and family and I can’t wait to come again.

My stay at the Smugglers Cove was perfect. Michael & Rita, the owners, are so friendly and welcoming. Our rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The inn has a ton of charm and is located right in the heart of town - 1min walk to water front. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable stay, look no further. This was one of my favourite stays in a long time - 100% would recommend to anyone making the trip to Lunenburg.
