“Best place in Newfoundland”
Reviewed August 31, 2006

Tickle Inn is a historic house, perhaps the Northern most house in Newfoundland. If it is not, it misses by only seconds of Latitude.

The view is outstanding including across the bay, the Viking settlement at L'anse aux Meadows, and in the distance the occasional whale or ocean going vessel.

But better than the view is the hospitality. After a wonderful dinner, guests assemble in the parlor for an evening of story telling, song, and Newfoundland history culminating in singing "Ode to Newfoundland". You leave wanting to know more of Newfoundland and its people.

Be aware that this is a historic dwelling built by 3 generations of the Adams family. Rooms can be small, and 2 1/2 baths are shared. This has NEVER proved a problem.

My wife and I spent part of our honeymoon at the Tickle Inn... it was like being at the very end of the earth, because that's pretty much where it's located. You turn left on this road, there's the inn, a few dozen feet from the sea. And nothing else. Icebergs and whales in the front yard, moose in the back yard, great food and hospitality inside...and since I was struggling with a cold at the time, the innkeeper generously offered me a shot of (I think it was) Screech, which I foolishly turned down in my medicated condition. So you have to share a bathroom with other guests since it's a tiny place. Big whoop. Anyway, soon as the kids are old enough to be sick of mom and dad, we're ditching them with the grandparents for a week and going back. One of the most beautiful places on earth. Did I say "wow"? Good.
