| 7 min read

Lunenburg Nova Scotia is located on the province’s southern shore and is one of the first places in Canada settled by British protestants in an effort to displace Acadian Catholics. Because of this major event in Canadian history the town has since been granted the title of a UNESCO world heritage site. This guarantees the unique architecture and civic design for years to come. As such there are quite a few places around town to visit such as the Knaut-Rhuland House, which is an 18th-century period home with furniture and the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic. Visit one of Atlantic Canada’s little towns on the water and stay in one of these amazing accommodations while you’re exploring the shores. Here are the top Airbnbs in Lunenburg, Canada.
