My Sister and I had the pleasure of staying 5 days in the lovely heritage Rothesay House B & B. This place has a lot of history behind it and George will do his best to talk with you about all of it if you ask him. There is nothing finer than having your morning coffee or evening glass of wine out on the front porch overlooking Harbour Grace. The owners George & Lynn will make you feel right at home and part of the family. Lynn will also cook up some fantastic breakfasts and dinners while you are there. If there is anything you need to know about the area or places you want to see while you are there George is your man to talk to. Ask him to doctor one of his maps for you, as you will find them very helpful. One of the places that I was happy and sad to visit close to town was the airstrip where Amelia Earhart and numerous other pilots took off from back in the day for their trans Atlantic fights. To me this place is part of aviation history I would think. When we arrived there we parked in a small lot with garbage everywhere, walked through a small opening in a fence, read a small plaque that is in need of cleaning or repair, and then gazed down a beautiful grass runway. The town or Government could do so much more with this place as it is I feel a spot in Aviation History. I know that you will enjoy your stay at the Rothesay House B & B . You will love to hear about the history of the house and area. You will enjoy using this place as your home base while visiting Newfoundland as it is close to a lot of wonderful areas and sights. And you will love trying all of Lynn's great breakfasts and dinners. Ask her about her homemade bee-less honey Mmmmm. Great Time, Great People, Great Place.
