    Description

    Known as "Boscawen Manor" upon its completion, this romantically inspired, Queen Anne Victorian mansion was a wedding gift from Senator Henry Kaulbach to his beloved daughter Edna in 1888. The asymmetrical form of intersecting gable wings is complemented by a south facing tower and principal rooms with large windows facing Lunenburg front harbour. The grand, winding staircase welcomes guests to the second and third floor suites with the rear suites having appealing views over Parade Square Park to enjoy the summer concerts from the town's Victorian bandstand. The "Manor" was enlarged and reincarnated as The Boscawen Inn in 1948 and is the largest historic Inn in the UNESCO protected town of Lunenburg. The Boscawen's signature is, "gentle hospitality within a vintage Maritime style". With over 14,000 square feet of living space, including 16 suites, owners' apartment, spacious common areas appointed with antiques and retaining most of its period architectural detail, this home exudes a comforting old-world atmosphere and the mellowed affluence of a by-gone era. The lower level, with its elevated, architectural views over the historic district, features a large south facing dining hall, old style pub and commercial size kitchen with adjacent storage rooms. The Boscawen is the definition of "established and would be the ideal wedding venue in close proximity to some of the province's most beautiful churches and would also be suitable to host any number of cultural events, or personalized corporate retreats. Overlooking one of Nova Scotia's most historically well-preserved harbours, this property is a unique opportunity for new custodians to get down to some serious, good old fashioned Nova Scotia hospitality, in a small town famed for its beauty and seafaring tradition. A casually gracious, welcoming, East Coast lifestyle, just over one hour from the city of Halifax or Stanfield International Airport. Feature list available to serious inquiries upon request.
