Lanes Privateer Inn

Liverpool, Nova Scotia

Lanes Privateer Inn is a hotel located in Liverpool. The Lanes' Tradition - A Fine Nova Scotia Inn! Built in 1798, Lane's Privateer Inn was once the home of one of Nova Scotia's most famous privateers, Captain Joseph Barss, and has been a dining tradition in the town of Liverpool, Queens County, Nova Scotia since 1962. Owned and continuously operated by the Lane family, Lane's is one of Nova Scotia finest inns and prides itself on its fine cuisine - meticulously and beautifully prepared using fresh local ingredients and presented in a warm atmosphere of charm and genuine hospitality. To experience the cuisine at our Nova Scotia inn is to experience the true "taste of Nova Scotia". Wherever your love of seafood directs you, Lane's will surpass the expectations of the most discriminating palates.

If you're looking for a more relaxed venue in which to meet friends or relax after a long day of meetings or sightseeing, seek out The Captain Barss Pub. We offer the same menu as the dining room but in a more casual atmosphere. Here, family and friends can meet, dine and engage in a friendly game of pool or saunter out onto our new Stone Patio with 2 levels for a quiet chat overlooking the Mersey River.

Local dining options close to Lanes Privateer Inn include Golden Pond Restaurant, and Woodpile Carvings And Cafe.

Lanes Privateer Inn

Fantastic spot in Liverpool. Near several white sand beaches and 1/2 between Keji National Park and Keji Seaside Park. Nice rooms, very clean. Big fluffy duvets and nice view of the river. Weather was unusally warm so the stone patio was open and we had a great lunch on the patio just off the pub. It's away from the road so you just hear the birds in the trees. So peaceful. After lunch I bought some Easter chocolate and a great cookbook in the bookstore/gourmet store. Love it there. Definately going to return and hit the beach this summer!

Positives: Food, location and the friendly staff will keep people coming back.

Negatives: It needs a bit of upkeep, but it is over 200 years old,so it's expected.

Lovely inn with warmth and friendliness that you rarely find in larger hotels. Nice rooms the great views of the Mersey River. Amazing breakfast. Great little pub and stone patio overlooking the Mersey. Bookstore and Gourmet shop are amazing. Love this place. Would recommend to anyone!

Expect to be disappointed with your stay. Rather than the feel of a historic property, expect the look and feel of a cheap 1980's style motel. One redeeming trait is the above average dinning/pub located on site. My advice is look elsewhere for accommodation.
