“A nice place to stay.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a lovely property, well situated an easy drive to St.John. It looks over the harbour yet is quiet and private. Our room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. Elegant bathroom and linens. At the end of the season the hostess was tired and took some shortcuts with the breakfast but overall this was a very good stay. Colette grew up locally so is very knowledgeable about the area sights, history and attractions.

Room Tip: There is a jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom.

I m delighted you enjoyed your visit in one of our lovely guest rooms
And thank you for your kind comments on the beautiful decor. I hope you
Had a chance to use our locally made bath salts and olive oil soaps.

My apologies that you felt your bkfst was not what you had anticipated.
You were our last guests for the season and you were right...I was a little
Tired having just returned to my first day back as a teacher. We stayed up most
Of the night before and packed to return to our home in St John s.

I hope you did enjoy the lovely bkfst during your stay. Guests love the baked fresh fruit
topped with our Inn s oven Toasted granola. I also hope you enjoyed our Signature Baked croissant served with shaved ham and Swiss cheese with our homemade plum compote.

My apologies that the muffins and croissant weren't t home baked as they usually
are at the Inn. Where we were closing down the property for the season the next day
We were trying to keep ingredient inventory low, so had to buy muffins from our local

We so enjoyed your company. I hope that one day you visit NL again
And if so, please contact me and bkfst will be complementary!
