The Red House is located on the harbour, just outside the town limits of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Lunenburg. Located on a quiet dead end street, the house faces southwest and offers a stunning view of Lunenburg's harbour, golf course and the spectacular evening sky. It is only a two minute drive or an easy walk to buy a morning newspaper, to shop for groceries or to take advantage of the many restaurants, unique shops and other amenities in the historic town centre.
The house is exceptionally spacious, bright and comfortable, ideal for a family vacation. Large principal rooms, a cosy den and roomy bedrooms make living in the house a delight, and the original wide plank floors, large windows and abundant folk art only contribute to The Red House's relaxed, cottage charm. A large lawn sweeps close to the water's edge and offers a perfect viewpoint for watching the daily activity of the harbour and the comings and goings of scallop boats, schooners, Tall Ships, and, of course, the beloved Bluenose II.

|The Red House was the perfect place to lay our heads down in Lunenburg. We were 8 adults and found the house to be very roomy and comfortable. We were delighted with the location which was a short stroll into town. The kitchen seemed well stocked but we never did prepare a meal in the house. It was just so easy to reach the many good restaurants in town by foot. We spent most of our time visiting little shops and art galleries but also managed a day trip to Halifax. Some of our group played golf and went sailing too. We had a very enjoyable stay in the pretty little town!|

|We could not believe our luck when we arrived at the Red House in Lunenburg. It was everything we were hoping for and more. The house is spacious and comfortable with everything you need. But the biggest advantage is how close it is to everything. We could walk daily into the village, either for ice cream, sightseeing or dinner. It was also close to some great beaches which was a plus with the kids. I would highly recommend the Red House.|

|This fall we had the good fortune of staying at the affectingly named 'Red House' for two weeks. The Red House sits directly on the harbour with the very best views of the Lunenburg waterfront. Each morning, with our coffees in hand, we watched the Bluenose sail out for its morning run. It was difficult to tear ourselves away from the house and its' incredible views to do our daily tours of the area. But when we did manage to venture away from the Red House, we spent our days walking around Lunenburg visiting different restaurants, shops, and watching all of the action along the working docks of the harbour. The walk into town is a perfect distance. It is just far enough out of town to feel like you are getting a small amount of exercise, and close enough to feel comfortable walking home with ease after a night out on the town. |
The house itself is charming and warm in both coziness and actual heat temperature. We were concerned that an old house like this might be drafty, but it proved to be a futile concern. It was very comfortable for us, our new baby, and our elderly family members. The owners were very helpful and have they have created a nice Nova Scotia vibe with fantastic folk art. All the amenities are in excellent condition and all the bedrooms offer a lot of choice for a variety of views and character. We have visited Lunenburg in the past and have always walked by this house in admiration. We will certainly come again and stay at the idyllic Red House.

|The Red House exudes the character of a well-loved friend. Beautifully proportioned, light filled, airy rooms open to views of Lunenburg harbour and surrounds. |
Each room is tastefully decorated with quality, comfortable furniture. Selections of folk art enhance this welcoming home - the best of the Maritimes.
Every detail has been thought of and provided by the amenable owner - from well-maintained kitchen equipment, utensils and necessary provisions to large, absorbent bath towels, premium bath washes and soaps to extensive information on Lunenburg and all it has to offer.
This is truly a home away from home. One so well situated within Lunenburg that you'll be inclined to walk everywhere, just like they did back in the day. After taking in the many quaint sites and interesting shops, we wanted to go back to our cozy Red House to relax and enjoy.
If you're looking for the best in authentic Maritime experiences, don't hesitate to rent this house.

|This summer was our second year staying at The Red House and we love it! Excellent location overlooking Lunenburg Harbour, easy walking distance to downtown and all of the amenities and sites, wonderful authentic Lunenburg home with lots of space, period features and charm --- we are a family of 4, and this year we also brought along my sister and nephew and there was plenty of room for everyone. Owner is very accommodating and has lots of great tourist information available, and next door neighbor Dave is a great resource and very helpful! Linens, beds very comfy, bathroom, kitchen very well stocked, open living space with windows overlooking harbor magical!!|
