Lunenburg, founded in 1753, is a charming small town with a remarkable history of sailing ships and iron men. Bluenose and Bluenose II were both built in Lunenburg. The solid boatbuilding background expresses itself in the distinctive architecture - residences, churches and a National Heritage Site, the Lunenburg Academy.
Greybeard's B&B is within walking distance of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lunenburg's "Old Town."
Today, Lunenburg is home to a wonderful collection of festivals, activities, sightseeing opportunities, many fine restaurants and art galleries - visit our See & Do page!

"Our house was built in 1887 for Captain William Howard Hebb (1863-1947) of Lunenburg," says Bob. See photo and partial newspaper clipping to the right.
"For 25 years Captain Hebb commanded Brigs and three-masted schooners to many ports of the world, having the reputation of being one of the leading deep sea captains of his day."
