I booked the Cliffhouse in April 2013 as the first B&B for our tandem bike trip around the Avalon Peninsula. Unfortunately, a few days before our scheduled departure on the Argentia ferry on August 5, the ferry was cancelled and we were left to fly into St. John's and ride 91 miles from St. John's to Branch.....a very long day on a bike. We arrived at Cliffhouse about 7 pm, and Chris was there to greet us. He knew we needed to eat because restaurants and grocery stores/convenience stores are rare along the roads down to Branch. Chris called the Gannet Restaurant down the road near the turn off to Cape St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary (the closest restaurant) and made sure it was open and sent us on our way in his car. We had a very tasty dinner of pan fried cod and mashed potatoes.....just the thing for our depleted energy stores. Back at the Cliffhouse, our rooms were very comfortable, and breakfast was varied and tasty. We were sorry to have missed our hosts, but both Chris and Priscilla had left for work.....We were really sorry we could not have enjoyed all the Cliffhouse had to offer as we had to set off early the next morning, but if we ever get back to Branch, we would love to return and take it all in.
