On day 2 of our Newfoundland honeymoon, Hurricane Igor (Sept 2010) threw a wrench into our travel plans and landed us in the little town of Harbour Grace at the Rothesay House. Without notice, or hydro for that matter, George and Lynn welcomed us into their home, and made sure that we felt like family- not guests, offering to cook for us on the fire. Lynn is an exceptional chef, from peasoup by candlelight to her fabulous breakfasts of homemade honey and jams, we were overwhelmed by her care and attention to every detail. George is extremely knowledgeable, and ensured that we missed nothing on our day trips to and from the Rothesay house. We later found out that they had accomdated us on a weekend that they had planned to be closed to celebrate their anniversary. These two are truly an amazing pair, and we really can't thank them enough. We would highly recommend this beautiful B&B to anyone visiting Newfoundland, and look forward to visiting again someday.
