Ladies at Welcome Centre booked this gem of a place for us. First class all the way. Rooms were very clean, comfortable, beautiful linens, superb service. What more can I say. Gorgeous dining room facing the ocean was unfortunately closed for meals for the season, except for breakfast. Breakfasts were delicious with fresh fruits, whipped cream, biscuits, eggs, etc.

The welcome from Colleen was warm.The room was well appointed and comfortable.Breakfast was hearty and tasty, and eaten in the dining room which has a beautiful view of the bay. Our only disappointment was : the restaurant is closed on Tuesdays and we had no choice on our arrival date.

We spent 2 nights at the Inn, Karen and Colleen made us feel right at home, awesome place to relax. Food is excellent, scenery is breathtaking, the rooms are spacious and super well kept! I was sitting on the deck one evening,felt a little chilly, Coleen literally removed a sweatshirt she was wearing and handed it to me...True Newfie hospitality!!

We had a wonderful stay for two nights. Our room (the Joan Morrissey room) was charming and comfortable. We had both dinner and breakfast here and they were delicious. The staff is very friendly and hard working. We also had the chance to see some wonderful sites nearby.
