Summer is great in historic Lunenburg and the fall is fantastic. The sun rises in the front and sets in the back over water! The view is breathtaking from every room in the house or from the balconies. The home is tastefully decorated, warm, cozy and rich from coordinated comforters and sheets to the color on the walls and is fully furnished for housekeeping. A fully equipped kitchen includes dishwasher, microwave, ice maker, all utensils, several sets of dishes, etc. This 4/2 approx. 2000 sq. ft. has three queen beds and a double bed in the antique bedroom along with a family room, living room, dining room and utility room with washer and dryer. Both bathrooms have been completely renovated for your pleasure. Some of the amenities include cable, wide screen TV, WIFI, and a high powered telescope to follow vessels leaving the harbor or view a star studded night sky. When viewing the Google map the house is actually located between Masons Pond and the Atlantic Ocean...
The Bluenose Golf Course separates the home from the town only a kilometer away. Historic Lunenburg is one of the most picturesque towns in all of Canada and is viewed every visit into town. The well known 'Bluenose' sailing vessel and the 'Bounty' were built in this quaint village. It still remains the home of the Dory ( the wood slatted fishing boat as seen in the picture of The Old Man and the Sea.) Take the walking tour or the horse and buggy ride. Just over the hill from the house you can buy fresh lobster at the dock just out of the sea. There is none like it. Enjoy an unforgettable vacation. You won't be disappointed. Thank you
Just a note, the house is located directly in front of Mason's Pond. The Google map is incorrect. If you hit the satellite map and zoom out, you can see the creek coming from the beach and winding along side the house emptying into the pond.
Can't believe we found such an idyllic setting. Behind this home, a beautiful pond, and out front was the ocean! We had gorgeous sunrises, sunsets, and unbelievable star-filled evenings. This home was spotless, comfortable, and more than we expected. We were pleased with everything inside. Beautiful furniture, two nice dining areas, 4 comfortable bedrooms, two staircases to access the second floor, two really nice bathrooms, one up and one down ...just an exceptional spacious home, and very well maintained. Nice linens too. Especially enjoyed the second-floor telescope where we could view the little towns and lighthouses along the coast. The kitchen had everything, although we ate out a lot. Very convenient 5-minute drive to Lunenberg, which is such a picturesque little town with lots to see and do. Several great little restaurants with fabulous seafood. Anyone who enjoys sailing as we do, will love all the historical attractions on the Canadian Schooner Bluenose. Also, it was a great jumping-off spot to see attractions like the Bay of Fundy and rhe Ovens Sea Caves. All in all, our stay there was more than we expected. Wonderful accommodations, fantastic views, great spot to just relax and unwind. We are a family of 4 and are planning to book this home again, next time will include friends. We would give this 10+ stars though the system only allows for 5.
I have been to Lunenburg many times before for the Boxwood Flute Festival and have stayed in many properties. This one was very nice, we had seven people staying in it. Lots of towels and linens and a well equipped kitchen and all of the amenities were as promised, wi-fi was great. One thing that should be noted for future guests - there is only one bedroom downstairs and three up, and to get to them you have to go up a very narrow and somewhat scary spiral staircase. The person in our group who took the downstairs bedroom could have in no way made it up and down those stairs multiple times a day. The rest of us were fine, but if anybody has mobility issues this is a definite point to consider. It was walkable into town, but maybe a bit further than listed in the property ad, over a mile. Very quick drive however and fantastic views on the way into town of lovely Lunenburg! I would definitely consider staying at this house again. It was far enough from any neighbors that we could play music well into the wee hours and not bother anybody, a definite bonus. Also, the fact that we could add an extra night to our week stay made it possible for us to stay there for the entire festival and not have to move for the final evening. Most properties in town hold tightly to the Saturday-Saturday time frame. We all enjoyed our stay very much!!!
What a great vacation home and the location is perfect! We enjoyed unbelievable sunrises over the Atlantic and sunsets on the pond. Lunenburg is a storybook village. So many neat things to see and do. We can't wait to go back and we'll be staying at the Paradise House again.
Historic Lunenburg is a fishing village on UNESCO'S World Heritage Site. Enjoy the local flavor, restaurants, shopping, whale watching, sailing, fishing, hiking, and walk to the Bluenose Golf Course. See THE OVENS (water caves carved in the side of a cliff), Peggy's Cove, the lighthouse route, Fishery Museum, Mariner's Museum (includes Titanic) and the historic fort in Halifax. PLEASE NOTE: The google map is slightly incorrect. The Paradise House is located directly in front of Masons Pond.
