"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. We were so thrilled with our first stay at Admiralty House that we are returning with my parents in 2005.
Lunenburg is a delightful fishing village of about 2,500, designated a Unesco world heritage site, & home port of the famous Bluenose. 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.
