This is my first experience with a B & B and if they would all compare to this, I will never stay at a hotel / motel / inn again.
Lets start with the front porch and front yard. The Sea Breeze is approximately 50 feet from the waters edge overlooking Shallow Bay and it's at the far end of town. The beach is sand, and rock and when the tide is out there is only a faint smell of ocean. As you look to the right, over the town, there are mountains in the background that will take your breath away. As you enter the B & B, you will notice how clean and clutter free the common area is.
The back deck has a wonderful hot tub, that guests are allowed to use, that is covered by an extending roof line and surrounded by a brand new deck. Robert and Roberta have deck chairs and a small table there to drop your towels on (that they provide) and it's a great place to sit, chat and get rid of the sore muscles from a days hike.
The breakfast... what can I say about the breakfast...? ORDER THE PANCAKES!! They are as big as your head !! And, Robert serves you two of them!! The maple syrup is heated as to not cool them down.. nice touch.
The rooms are spacious, elegant, beautiful. All have huge beds, top of the line bed linens, flat screen tv's, superior soaps and shampoos, huge towels and great pillows.
It takes approx 10 minutes to walk to town to watch a play, have supper, visit the botanical gardens or to do some laundry if need be.
It seems that the Sea Breeze is 1/2 an hour to everything you would need to do in Gros Morne National Park. I would suggest Baker Brook Falls, Western Brook Pond (do the 1:00 boat ride, it warms up by then) and definately the live theatre. Small towns like Cow Head (pronounced Cow Ed by the locals) need to be supported by tourists. We wouldn't want something this beautiful to become a ghost town. If you have time and would like to travel outside the park, St Anthony (St Antnee) is an absolute gem of a place..AND, it has a Tim Hortons.!!
This should be rated a 5 star B & B, you will lack for nothing! I will be back time and time again. I literally had tears leaving.
