My Wife and I are travelling around the East Coast and we found this place, many places had no vacancies, we sure lucked out! It's a lovely clean B&B, with very good breakfasts. We liked it so much we stayed an extra night. Pat was very charming and funny, didn't see much of Chuck. We highly recommend this place if...

This was a great place to stay, the home was spotless, the room was lovely and very comfortable. We were given good advise for going out for dinner. The deer were grazing in the adjacent paddocks. The breakfast was amazing, Pat is a terrific cook. A little out of the town itself, but a pleasant stay away from the motels...

My boyfriend and I visited this lovely B&B for a night and it was such a pleasure to be graced by two wonderful souls. Pat and Chuck were very accommodating and welcoming. We felt right at home! It's certainly a place worth spending time in!

Myself and my girlfriend stayed with Pat and Chuck just last week and after a 2 week stay in Canada travelling through Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia I can safely say that this was the best accommodation we stayed in.

We stayed here near the end of a two week trip to Ontario&Nova Scotia from the UK. Pat & Chuck were wonderful hosts, we throughly enjoyed our stay. The location of this B&B is very good for Lunenburg and other places of interests on the South Shore. Despite visiting out of season in April we still found lots to do,...

Stayed here recently and were pleased with our accommodation choice. Room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fresh and satisfying. Tourist sights were very close to reach, and enjoyed walking around this quaint town. Would definitely recommend this B & B.

My husband and I had the good fortune of staying at Townsend on August 9th.

You want to shop and eat in the bustling downtown of Lunenburg, but you want a quiet place to sleep, like at the end of the town (At Townsend, get it?). This brand new B&B exceeded our expectations with a huge ensuite bathroom (with lots of toiletries, including toothpaste), quiet bedroom with satellite TV, and scrumptious breakfast prepared by our...

Our visit was short but very comfortable in this new, beautifully decorated and quiet residence. The friendly hosts, hearty, fresh breakfast and proximity to Lunenburg made this stay very enjoyable. The beds are most comfortable and the setting green and fresh! C & L
