Whimsical Victorian Inn with Seafood Restaurant

The house at 15 King Street has candy-cane-striped moldings that ornament its gray façade. That peculiar detail is a clue to the building’s bizarre career trajectory: it’s been a private residence for 123 years—117 of them with the same family—and at different turns has housed a restaurant, a French bakery, administrative offices, and a senior-living facility. It was also once a Georgian-style home and has since been renovated to look Victorian. Today the house serves as the architectural centerpiece of Mariner King Inn, situated in the heart of Old Town in Lunenberg, Nova Scotia.

There’s an upscale feel throughout the hotel, where chandeliers and hardwood vanities intermingle with decorative details that nod to the nearby Lunenburg harbor. The guest bedrooms and suites have a degree of singularity. In the historic main building you’ll find the attic suite, which features a private balcony overlooking the harbor. Meanwhile, the nautically themed rooms and suites come decked out with rudders, ship's lamps, and maritime paintings. Many of the annexes' standard rooms have a fireplace, and each of the one-bedroom suites has an additional fireplace in the living room so you can curl up with a book and incinerate any pages that have offensive kissing parts.

King's Plate, the inn's onsite restaurant, preps European-style fare and seafood specialties such as herb-crusted Atlantic cod. Recent entrees have also included braised Nova Scotia lamb with potato purée and sea scallops in a creamy saffron sauce. In the morning, you can dine at the buffet, which has a spread of breakfast entrees such as stuffed french toast and lobster eggs Benedict.

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia: Historic Fishing Town with Majestic Tall Ships

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the town of Lunenburg traces its lineage back to the mobile peoples of Germany, Switzerland, and the Montbéliard region of France. Once early settlers discovered that the waters here were stocked with silver-skinned quarry fish, they came in droves to cast their lines and haven’t stopped since. Today, the town maintains its legacy as a North American fishing mecca.

Adding to the small-town charm of Lunenberg is its historical Cape architecture: houses are clad in shades of orange, lemon, and fire-truck red. You can take a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride through the town, too. Along the way you’ll see some of the area’s nearly 200 specialty shops and art galleries, as well as its many restaurants serving fresh seafood.

Many majestic tall ships are docked at Lunenburg Harbour Port, and a good portion of them were erected and christened by the town’s legendary shipbuilders. You can typically photograph and board some of the tall ships, and new ones rotate in and out of the port depending on the date and season.
