We had a great first experience in Newfoundland and Celeste knew how to guide us through this big and nice island. She is very accessible and always ready to help. The place is cozy, well decorated and well located so you have a nice view on the harbour and the hicking trails are very accessible. Breakfast was delicious and all... More

A very nice stay and hospitality was very exceptional. Great breakfasts and the offers to look after our six month daughter by the owner was very much appreciated. Anybody travelling through Newfoundland should both visit LaScie and this retreat.

We wanted to explore some of the smaller communities in NL and what a treat it was to come upon La Scie and the Fair Haven Retreat B&B! We appreciated fresh clean linens and a most comfortable bed!

I arrived in La Scie without a reservation and Valerie from the Museum + Tea Room helped me find a room for the night. Fair Haven Retreat was a relatively new B+B, not yet listed in the tourism book. I was immediately taken with Celeste, a kind and gentle person. The accomodations were wonderful and breakfast was divine. It's worth... More
