We spent 3 wonderful nighs in one of the most spectacular places we have ever stayed - like being aboard a luxury houseboat, on and over the actual water of this very active port. The fishing fleet was finishing its final days of their Lobster and Turbot days and we were able to watch everything happening from our own private deck. This is a small and beautiful fishing town and we were able to enjoy many local walks and restaurants. Even a super special night when the owners/operators (husband/wife) of this property actually walked over to the lobster boats, selected a couple of nice lobsters for us to choose one for dinner - it was huge and nice!! One of the owners happens to be the town Mayor - not every day that a Mayor walks over with fresh, cooked lobster and condiments to hand deliver to guests!! They also helped immensely with suggestions for various hiking and touring - a super place along the Viking Trail and we simply needed more time.

- Seaside Suites is a four-star waterfront accommodation in the quaint, historic seaside village of Woody Point. We are located in the heart of Gros Morne National Park with views of the Tableland Mountains, Gros Morne Mountain and the ocean waters of Bonne Bay. There is nothing more soothing and scenic as the views and sounds of the ocean. We have two properties across the street from each other, over the water and across the street from the water; the Over the Water Building (which IS over the water) is home to the Gros Morne, Tablelands and Lighthouse Suites. The Wharfside Building is newly opened and has the Sandollar and Starfish Suites as well as Seaside Souvenirs and our Seaside Deli & Dairy Bar, located directly across from the town wharf, where you can try fishing, take in the scenic views with your morning coffee, or catch the water taxi to Norris Point for an outing. We have five well appointed suites. The waterfront of Woody Point has recently been designated a Heritage District for its historic significance on the West Coast of Newfoundland and also for its' restoration of the many historic buildings along the water. When you settle in at Seaside Suites, you can stroll and enjoy our quaint, scenic village. Be sure to choose Seaside Suites for your Gros Morne adventure. You won't want to leave! ... more less
