“Perfect for my extended business trip!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 for a stay in November 2012

ShoreLark by the Sea was perfect for my extended business trip to St. John’s. The Upper Nest has everything including wi-fi, and is a quick and easy commute to downtown. Coming back to Petty Harbour after work was great; rounding that last bend in the road into the snug bay and town is like coming home. Loved sitting at the kitchen table looking at the full moon over the ocean. And I slept like a baby in that wonderful bed. Looking forward to coming back to stay in the summer.

Hi Mark!

It was so nice to have you stay with us during your business visit! Very smart to do this as you get the best of both worlds in one visit. We would love to have you again in the summer months - you'll be able to sit outside and watch the waves and the moon! Thanks for staying with ShoreLark!
