My husband and I stayed one night at Strapp's Heritage House in July 2013 and we thought the place was wonderful! Liz was extremely friendly and happy to make suggestions for supper. Our room was very clean and comfortable and was finished beautifully. We were told to help ourselves anytime to their homemade wine or tea and coffee. We had... More

So many people have already written so many nice things about Strapp's Heritage Home and the host and hostess Mike and Liz so I'll spare readers from reading the same material all over again. Everything was done to perfection. The home is beautiful. The owners were great and the home is in a good location for exploring. Nice ocean view... More

We were only in Nfld for a week, and spend the last night at Strapp's Heritage House. The hosts were lovely, the room very comfortable, the view AMAZING!!!, and a great breakfast to boot. What more can you ask for? Think about this place rather than staying in St. John's (although do stay a night or two in St. John's... More

John and I were looking for the authentic experience of being welcomed into a stay in a lovingly restored heritage home. Strapp's had it all! Right upon arrival (our 1st stay in NFLD) we were warmly greeted by Mike and Liz with that Newfoundlander friendly fare we had been told so much about. Our room was quiet and comfy and... More

Right from the first welcoming handshake we felt we were with old dear friends. Mike delighted me with a photo essay on the renovations he undertook to build the house into the "feels like 100 year old" home it is today (but with proper plumbing and insulation.) Liz and I shared an interest in sewing and rug hooking, so had... More

Strapp's has it all!! Lovely older home with an amazing verandah, where you can sit, chat, drink some of Mike's wine, and take in the atmosphere of this very scenic piece of heaven by the water. And equally important is Liz, the perfect host- friendly, a great cook, and very knowledgeable. She directed us to a fabulous restaurant in nearby... More

My wife and I have been fortunate to stay at some wonderful B&B's in Europe and North America, but none finer than Strapps Heritage House in Harbour Main NFL. Mike and Liz have lovingly restored their heritage home, creating ensuite baths in all the rooms, but still managing to maintain the original feel of the home, right down to the... More

We would highly recommend a stay here. We enjoyed the hospitality - the view of the ocean from the veranda and the homemade wine in the evenings. The room was comforable, very clean - simply-stated expression of the past. Breakfast was generous, served hot with a smile and sometimes a local story. We also enjoyed conversing with the otherguests and... More

We happened upon Mike and Liz's bed and breakfast by pure luck. We originally were scheduled for one night and ended up staying 3 nights because of the fabulous hospitality. Room was charming, comfy and updated. Breakfasts were excellent with a wide variety of choices. Snacks ( as well as homemade wine!) were readily available- just like home. Mike and... More
