We rented the Seaside House, a 1923 house that has been in the ownere's family since. Great space, enclosed porch looking at the water, full kitchen, tons of room to move about and close to many of the best hikes in Gros Morne. We also saw the Suites and they are wonderful.
It's a small village (pop. 400) so don't expect hustle and bustle. I was actually worried that the recession hit them hard but was told it had been a very good summer - "that's what it looks like when it's busy here"! The local "one stop shop" has a reasonable variety, but grocery shopping is best in Deer Lake, 50 minute drive away.
It's an easy flight from Toronto - some non-stop - so you can leave your house in Toronto at Noon and be in the Park 4-5 hours later. Soome days, we were totally alone on the trails. It's Newfoundland so it will occasionally rain, but it's worth the trip.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Seaside Suites is a four-star waterfront accommodation in the quaint, historic seaside village of Woody Point. We are located in the heart of Gros Morne National Park with views of the Tableland Mountains, Gros Morne Mountain and the ocean waters of Bonne Bay. There is nothing more soothing and scenic as the views and sounds of the ocean. We have two properties across the street from each other, over the water and across the street from the water; the Over the Water Building (which IS over the water) is home to the Gros Morne, Tablelands and Lighthouse Suites. The Wharfside Building is newly opened and has the Sandollar and Starfish Suites as well as Seaside Souvenirs and our Seaside Deli & Dairy Bar, located directly across from the town wharf, where you can try fishing, take in the scenic views with your morning coffee, or catch the water taxi to Norris Point for an outing. We have five well appointed suites. The waterfront of Woody Point has recently been designated a Heritage District for its historic significance on the West Coast of Newfoundland and also for its' restoration of the many historic buildings along the water. When you settle in at Seaside Suites, you can stroll and enjoy our quaint, scenic village. Be sure to choose Seaside Suites for your Gros Morne adventure. You won't want to leave! ... more less
