Would have liked to stayed here but they do not allow 'big' dogs - even in their cabins. I hate hearing that - they allow small dogs. What is the difference? Our dogs are well behaved, quiet, and we'll put a deposit down if we need too. There are not many options in the area so it is pretty disheartening to hear. I have never called a cabin rental that hasn't allowed my dogs. People travel with there dogs - they are family. I wish everyone would get over the stigma.

This red building overlooking the ocean once housed an inshore fishery business and was remodeled to house tourists. My husband and I have stayed here twice and enjoyed both stays. The first year we stayed in the Bernier Room. The decor was beautiful. The room had a setee, a comfortable bed, a microwave, and a small refrigerator and a coffee pot. The bathroom was roomy and clean. What more could you want. The second time we stayed in the Loft. WOW! Huge windows with a panoramic view of the ocean. It also had the essentials that the Bernier room had but with comfy armchairs too and a kitchen area. You hardly wanted to leave the room but the restaurant was calling to our hungry bellies. The food is great. Breakfast was good but the dinner was awesome--broiled cod with all the fixings. YUM! The owner and staff are friendly and pleasant. There is also an extensive gift shop adjoining the Basque themed restaurant. All in all, a great place to sleep and to eat.

This was one of the few options in the town, but worth the stop. The reservation process is a little dated, so I was very nervous that I would arrive and there would be a mistake with my reservation. However, there were no issues. There is a nice view of the ocean from here as well. Be careful, the black flies are horrible in this area and there are a fairly decent amount in the hotel. There is no cell connection anywhere in Red Bay, so make sure you are aware of this. There is also a permanent boil advisor in this town, so make sure to plan ahead. I would recommend driving along the coast. You can get a glimpse of icebergs on this drive. I went in August, but still saw a couple remaining icebergs.

The Stage Head was a fine place to stay with an amazing view over the water to the island. Right next to the whaling interpretive centre. Whaling Station folk are very friendly and helpful. Great food in restaurant. A word of warning...this particular suite has 2 double beds and they are very noisy. Sounds like they have tinfoil in the mattresses. Could use an mattress upgrade.

Wow! It was a two level place with a full fridge and a microwave. The downstairs had a table as well as a sitting room. Everything was tastefully done. The large bedroom upstairs had two queen beds with tons of space, The beds, sheets pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom was very nice as well with tons of hot water. The view from the large window was of the water and harbor area - very scenic.( Although when we were there the black flies would have carried you away) All in all - we really enjoyed out stay there and would recommend it to anyone. (we were late arriving and the ladies in the restaurant stayed and made us sandwiches so we would have something for dinner. very nice indeed)
