The bed and breakfast immerses guests in the comforts of home as effectively as a childhood blanket or a pair of enchanted ruby slippers filled with chicken-noodle soup. Escape to a magical world of luxury with today’s Groupon: for $54, you get a one-night stay for two at Ashlea House Bed and Breakfast in Lunenburg (up to a $159 value).
Originally constructed in 1886, Ashlea House blends 19th-century refinement with 21st-century amenities. Groupon holders can stay in one of five rooms, such as the Waverly Room, whose turquoise walls, queen-sized bed, and custom furniture made by local artisan Al Wells grant visitors a vibrant nest to sojourn in. Travel mates can uncoil the tension of a long trip within the twin beds of Victoria's Room, where the original wide plank-wood flooring has been recently hand restored to a deep, lustrous gloss. Each guest room is decked out with its own bathroom, free WiFi, and cable TV, with most displaying original art by local artists. By day, boarders can enjoy the niceties of the house or can move through space-time into Old Town Lunenburg, an official UNESCO heritage site. Explore the pedestrian-friendly streets, take in a few shops, or challenge the locals to regional flora and fauna trivia duels.
Each of Ashlea House's guest rooms represents its own distinctive design through singular features. Much of the renovated wood flooring was installed with an eye toward environmental sustainability, using wood purchased from a local eco-forestry wood farm. The house mascots are Schooner and Dory, two Nova Scotian duck-tolling retrievers. When not in the kitchen whipping up eggs benedict à la rawhide, Schooner and Dory will point beach-seeking guests in the direction of the mysterious, blue abyss.
