One of the most interesting places I've had a pleasure to visit. Back in time 200 years with modern conveniences. If you want to relax get away from hustle and bustle this is your place. A great place for a group, company weekend or destination wedding. It will take a bit of time to get there but well worth the trip. With valet service starting at Mary's Harbour dock, while on the island and return nothing but the best. No cell phone service currently but a telephone in the grocery store, no cars, no television, no street lights but accommodations are excellent. A variety of accommodations for groups or individuals and all are 5 star and in The Loft internet is available so you can keep contact with the world. Where can you go and hear a plane at 35,000 ft. at 11pm as no other sound to be heard. A helicopter and float plane both arrived on Saturday and a sailing ship from New Zealand was in port when we arrived. Icebergs were plentiful and you can catch cod right from the dock. The tour of Battle Harbour is excellent as all buildings by the dock are the original buildings back in the 1800's. All meals are homemade, staff is excellent, meal times are set and everyone should take the dinner roll baking class. As the student said from University of Washington "it is a must see: If you are an art enthusiast maybe catch an artist painting on the hills of Battle Harbour. Bring warm clothes as the weather may change at anytime.

We spent a day and overnight in Battle Harbour last weekend and what an incredible experience it was. The staff and volunteers behind the restoration have done a fabulous job. You feel like you are touching the soul of the fishing heritage of Newfoundland and Labrador as you tour the village. The ocean views from the trails around the island are stunning, the food excellent and accommodation historic but comfortable. Music, a glass of wine and easy conversation in “the loft” with Peter and other guests after dinner was a perfect end to the day. This was a trip well worth taking!

Battle Harbour is a stunning place to stay! The staff's love for the island is shown in every interaction, from their warm welcome, the tour, the lovely meals they prepare, and the comfortable rooms. Their eagerness to share the history of the island elevates the customer service experience. Evenings in "The Loft" chatting with Peter and the other guests are not to be missed! Battle Harbour is worth the travel required to reach this remote spot. My husband and I spent 2 weeks traveling through Newfoundland and Labrador and this was our favorite stop. What a beautiful, peaceful place. We will definitely return someday.

Visited with Road Scholars. You have to get to Labrador--not easy & then drive to port where you board the small boat for the 90 minute trip to Battle Harbour. We were the only 20 guests on the island. First thing we noticed from our room was the iceberg. Great recreation of a cod fishing village. Nice hikes. Just a place not to be missed, even though it is way out there. P.S. Bring your warm clothes.
