“Be Sharon's guest”
Reviewed November 9, 2010

To be honest, the Newman House is more a B&B than a backpackers (except for the rates): it's small, it's clean, there is all sorts of stuff for breakfast and the hostess, Sharon, is a the best hostess you can imagine. She showed me all the sights on the map and gave me a lift to town (although it's just a 30 minutes walk or a short bus ride). She let me have her bike for the day , described the best trails in Rockwood Park to me and even invited us guests for Thanksgiving dinner with her family.
She just opened the backpackers and is about to add more rooms for the next season and I hope that many guest will find their way to this friendly and homely place.
The location is a bit out of town (so you have a very quiet neighbourhood) but Sobey's and other shops, the local bus stop and the Acadian bus terminal are just around the corner.
