Arrived in Newfoundland via ferry in Port Aux Basques. After a quick offload I drove 30 minutes (51 kms) to Maclellan Inn/ Thackeray Suites located in Doyles Nfld. It's in a beautiful rural setting near the ocean. The imposing Tabletop Mountains add a wonderful backdrop to the scenery as well. The Inn was full when I booked but I was able to get a room in Thackery Suites which is 2 kms down the road. Gerald, was expecting me and directed me to Room 2 and there was no more to it than that. I wasn't asked to register or give them my credit card. When I asked where I checked out he advised to pop back to the Inn in the AM when I was ready to leave. Pretty informal but it is the Newfoundland way. When I arrived at Thackery Suites the door was open with the key left on the table. So much for worrying about thefts. Must be a nice way to live. The suites, two of them, were in a renovated home. One suite up and the other on the main level. My suite was more than I needed but quite comfortable. Two bedrooms, full bath, TV, living room. It was super clean and very quiet. All I could hear were song birds at sunrise. Breakfast is provided to the folks staying at the Inn only, so bring food to cook up yourself if staying in the Suites.
