We stayed for two nights, wish it had been more. This beautiful historic home was decorated so beautifully. The parlor was a nice place to write in my travel journal in the morning before breakfast and later in the evenings. Lynn and George are wonderful hosts. George was a wealth of information about history of the area,places to see and places to eat. He also will help you plan an itinerary with a map to write your notes. The breakfasts were delicious, filling and wonderful. There is also an option of having dinner at the Inn. This dinner is a must because it was a delicious gourmet meal. It is a great way to converse with the other guests staying at the Inn. We really enjoyed the guests that were staying at the time we were there. One guest in particular was a wealth of information especially about the city of St. John's, a real character. There are many things to do and see in the area it was hard to choose. Our room was perfect and large enough for our luggage. The bed was so comfortable and had a wonderful nights sleep. They have two dogs, Maggie is the small dog that lives inside the house and O'Malley is a big friendly Newfoundland dog. It is a photographers paradise, so many places of interest it was hard to choose. Lynn and George really made you feel at home and part of the family. They were so welcoming. Lynn made her own bee-less honey and granola. delicious!!!This is a place not to miss and make it a part of your travel itinerary while in Newfoundland.The near by town of Brigus is a must see, so quaint and great photo ops. There is a nature park in Salmonier that is also a great place to visit and see the wildlife of Newfoundland. I can't say enough about this wonderful Inn...Thank you Lynn and George for a great stay.
