Getaway for a weekend of fine food and music

Nova Scotia's South Shore has so much to offer. Why not combine your concert tickets with one of our lodging and/or dining experiences and make a weekend of it.

Meal, Music and Mariner King

There isn't a more central location than the historic Mariner King Inn from which to enjoy your getaway weekend in Lunenburg. Built as a sea captain's home in 1825, this stately property is situated at 15 King, on the edge of the extra-wide street that perfectly bisects Old Town Lunenburg, the model colonial settlement established here in 1753, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Completely renovated to provide upscale, contemporary lodging, you'll be wrapped in comfort while just steps away from colourful galleries, shops, still active fishing wharves and the outstanding Rime Restaurant and Wine Bar where Chef Jeffrey MacNeil combines the freshest ingredients of the season with internationally-inspired flavours for a vibrant taste experience.

With packages starting at $265 plus HST, you can indulge yourself in one night's accommodation at the Mariner King, including a gourmet continental breakfast, an $80 dinner credit at Rime, and two tickets to one of LAMP's Masters Series concerts. Plus, show Rime wait staff your tickets and enjoy a complimentary beverage (house wine, draught beer or well liquor).

Check out the Gryphon Trio Special.

Travel back in Time

Built by one of Lunenburg's most successful early merchants and later home of Judge George T. Solomon, the 1775 Solomon House Bed & Breakfast offers its guests the personal hospitality and simple pleasures of another time.

From fresh flowers on the dresser to vintage quilts and linens on the bed, the gourmet breakfast that's guaranteed to be every bit as wonderful as the music you'll enjoy - even the short stroll between this masterfully restored heritage home and our 1895 concert hall will leave you relaxed and refreshed.

One night's accommodation plus concert tickets for two, starting at $185.

For more information, or to book, please contact innkeepers Janet and George Palmer at 902-634-3477.

Or make a day of your concert experience

Toast a wonderful concert experience at Rime

Celebrate the finale of your concert experience in Lunenburg with a sumptuous dinner at Rime Restaurant and Wine Bar.

Chef Jeffrey MacNeil combines the freshest, most flavourful offerings of his Nova Scotia with global cooking influences to create a menu that's full of indulgent dishes like his Stozzapretti and Duck Confit, served with local ginger, star anise, kimchee and crispy shallots. Or try the Lobster and Mushroom Pappardelle, featuring homemade pappardelle noodles, truffle essence, arugula and brandy. But save room for dessert, and Rime's extraordinary S'more with Salted Caramel Sauce.

Present your concert ticket from that day's show and receive a complimentary drink (house wine, draught beer or well liquor) with purchase of a food item.
