We stayed at the Cantwell House B&B in St. John's again this summer - one night on our arrival and 4 nights before we left for home. As always, Mary, Lou and Thelma were very welcoming. The house has changed a little bit since last summer - the ground floor now has a private bedroom where the dining room used to be. So the living room (think of your Grandmother's Parlour) is now the dining room. All that this means is that you can see any street activity while having breakfast! Speaking of breakfast - who could ask for more? Real pots of tea, great coffee, a different main course each day, fruit, yoghurt, muffins, home made jams.
We stayed in a room on the second floor, that had a really big well-appointed bathroom for our first night and three nights of the second part of our vacation. Lots of towels, shampoos and body wash, hair dryer. For our last night we had the top floor to ourselves, including the lounge area and the deck with the view of the harbour.
Sadly, the Cantwell House will be changing hands later this summer (2013) and the new owners plan to live as a family there, not run a B&B. The current owners would be a very hard act to follow! We certainly wish Mary and Lou all the best in their retirement, but Wow! we'll miss them!
