About Nancy Ross

Hi, I have recently taken over management of this listing from my daughter Molly and have updated the listing and will respond quickly to queries.

I have come to love Lunenburg since moving here in 1999; especially the beautiful waterfront. It is a safe and welcoming community and I hope you enjoy your stay.

Nancy Ross purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Nancy Ross chose Lunenburg

We purchased 71 Pelham Street in 2011 and my son and partner, a heritage carpentry instructor completed extensive renovations. They added two additional Scottish dormers which add light and access to great views from this apartment. This house was built in 1864 for ships carpenter, Benjamin Zinck and became known as the Zinck house. This house has 'solid bones' and we have attempted to maintain much of its' original character. This house is located two blocks up from the harbour and one street down from the main street. It is within easy walking distance from all restaurants, pubs and bars located within the town. Last year five of Lunenburg's restaurants were listed within the top 25 in the province. I think it is the most beautiful town in Nova Scotia and we hope you enjoy your stay.

Perfect in town apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable and very clean accommodations with a view of the harbour and could see the Bluenose 2 leave and dock. Great walking distance to all of the stores and wharf action. I would definitely stay here again. 😃?

The Owner has total DISDAIN for her Guests

  • 1 of 5

Some Owners go the extra mile. Nancy Ross stopped a mile short, and it ruined our stay in Lunenburg.

From first sight, we felt the Owner had grossly misrepresented this property, but she had left us with no choice but to attempt to make the best of our stay...something I was ultimately not able to do.

This attic apartment was a sweltering oven, day and night. Many of the windows wouldn't open and for those that did, there was nothing provided to prop them up. And the was busted out and another didn't even fit the window - we had to stick towels in the gap!

I couldn't bear to stay a third night and returned to my home.

Granted, she doesn't advertise any features, but fails to even provide what we considered to be essentials:

No provision for collecting organic waste

No paper towels

No tissues

Only 2 paper napkins

No ironing board

No refrigerator light

Only 1 hand towel ostensibly for 4 people

In spite of her cheerful invitation to contact her by phone or email, Nancy Ross failed to respond to either for two weeks, and only repaid the "damage deposit" after I complained to the company.

If there were a "zero star" rating, that's what I would give.

the owner thought of everything

  • 5 of 5

Four of our group of 13 stayed here and they were delighted.

They appreciated the parking places; the abundance of towels and the decor - tasteful.

It is always great when there are no 'tchotchkies' to deal with.

Thank you for making it available to us.

Quaint loft apt in the Center of Lunenberg

  • 2 of 5

Comfy beds and pillows and right in the Center of town! Steep stairs to the loft with no lighting for returning in the evenings. Although advertised we had no tv or wifi. Owner did say it was being installed in June but that didn't help us. Overall a lovely property but needs a little more TLC

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I had a wonderful holiday in this comfortable Loft. The owners were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area, and even offered to take us sailing! But the best part was being in the middle of Lunenburg and able to explore on foot. Would certainly recommend staying here if visiting the area.
