Admiralty House, located right on the waterfront with a million
dollar panoramic view, is in the charming historic village of
Lunenburg, with excellent shops and restaurants a few steps away. It
has proved to be an ideal vacation and honeymoon spot for so many
since we began sharing it for tourist rental in 1999. Since
Admiralty House is a duplex consisting of two spacious (1200 square
feet) private flats, The Upper Deck and The Captain’s Quarters, we
have hosted many happy family reunions by the sea.

All of our guests to date have said that Admiralty House is even
more wonderful than our website can portray, the views are glorious;
the village is at your fingertips but one still has the privacy of a
quiet and spacious (each flat is 1200 square feet) home away from
home. We are just in the process of putting up a new website (more
text and pictures to follow) but please do have a look at it as well
as the guest comments below.

Here are some guest comments about Admiralty House:

“I came with my parents and my daughter. We had the time of our
lives just enjoying the
simple things. We were impressed by the unique architecture and
enjoyed walking along
the streets and the docks. Love the location of this house, its many
amenities, and specially
the sun porch….a wonderful place to sleep and to watch the endless
dock activities.” DP,

"What a wonderful week we have had here in Lunenburg. We are SO glad
we chose this
fishing village and Admiralty House!!! The view exceeded our
expectations and the
accommodations were excellent." PTH, New Jersey.

"Looking out over the harbour was the best way to start and end each
day. The sights and
sounds of every day life, along with the many local birds framed
each day perfectly." TM

"We have had two glorious weeks in Lunenburg and at Admiralty House.
Our hosts are
amongst the finest people we have met in our many travels. This is
our second trip to Nova
Scotia, and we want to thank the people of Canada for their
kindness, friendship and
hospitality." JM, New Mexico

"For two low impact tourists we enjoyed ourselves to the point of
taxation. Lunenburg is a
walker, gawker delight. Dining is fabulous, its quiet and historic
architecture is eye candy."
FS, Stirling, Ontario.

Welcome to the Captain's Quarters, the charming and private ground
floor flat of Admiralty House, right on the ocean in residential old
town Lunenburg. What a delight when we removed the carpeting in The
Captain’s Quarters, revealing gorgeous hardwood floors in a log
cabin or herring bone pattern. We think you will feel like the
captain of a fine ship in this lovely ground floor suite, especially
seated in the fabulous glassed in porch on the waterside of the
house. This glorious room provides wonderful vistas of the harbour,
a perfect vantage point for watching boats, birds, the sunset or
just absorbing the beauty of the water. Since this is a private e
room, with a very comfortable double futon the captain may choose to
bunk down here. Alternately, the spacious master bedroom with a
queen sized bed or a very comfortable double pull-out in the living
room could be the sleeping quarters of choice. A large eat-in
kitchen and a gracious dining room gives lots of scope for enjoying
that lobster or other bounty of the sea. Other spots for quiet
relaxation are the living room or the old-fashioned verandah with
sliding glass panels, adjustable according to the sea breeze or the
Jacuzzi-style air whirlpool bathtub in the four piece bathroom.

Outside on the expansive ocean-side deck, or inside from the lovely
picture window in the kitchen; with a cup of coffee at daybreak or a
glass of wine at sunset, the bird's eye view of the harbour from the
spacious and private Upper Deck is spectacular. A "room with a
million dollar view", the eat-in kitchen is a terrific space for
cooking and sharing food and fun and includes six full-sized
appliances (washer, dryer, dishwasher). The living room, with
comfortable contemporary furnishings as well as antiques, cable TV/
DVD, and telephone offers quiet relaxation, or for those with work
to do, an adjoining alcove provides a desk. With three bedrooms
(queen, and two doubles) there is also plenty of space for private
R&R. Chose the seaside bedroom with antique sleigh bed (double) and
ocean views, the master bedroom with queen bed or the middle bedroom
with a double bed. Enjoy the luxury of an air whirl pool massage in
the four piece bathroom (which also has an ocean view).



Lunenburg is a delightful fishing village of about 2,500, designated

Many interesting sites & walks, such as the remarkable architecture
of restored homes, the fascinating Fisherman's museum, sailing
excursions, whale watch tours & horse drawn carriage tours, deep sea
fishing, local festivals, as well as excellent restaurants & an
interesting variety of shops. Just down the street is the world
class Fisheries museum with excellent interactive activities for
children as well as 2 restored fishing vessels, a sailing schooner &
a trawler. Lunenburg is still an active fishing community & guests
are fascinated by the coming & going of the ocean trawlers. When in
port, the Bluenose is visible from the deck & the yard, as are the
many other toll masted schooners that come to visit. There are
municipal tennis courts, playgrounds & a swimming pool. Fabulous
