We arrived late (drove from Port aux Basque sightseeing along the way) and kept missing the sign but as soon as we saw the welcoming house and lawn furniture and flowers, we knew that this stay would be special. We weren't disappointed. Doreen advised us to go to By the Sea at King's Point for supper YUMMY. Then we settled into our room with a beautiful quilt. Too tired for the wi fi or TV. The hot full breakfast was excellent. Then we were introduced to the ugly sticks and spoons and even sang. A great experience. Just sorry that we had planned only one night on our way to Twillingate and Fogo Island. Stay longer if you can. There are many things to do that we didn't take advantage of especially learning to cook a Jiggs Dinner. Next time will be different.
You are welcomed into Doreen's home and made to feel like family. She and Brian are special people and Doreen will show you what Newfoundland is all about. Be prepared to join in a morning sing song even if you don't know the words and be prepared to meet the resident ugly sticks. For us what was planned as a quick stop over on our way to Twillingate became a highlight of our whole trip. Thanks Doreen for that special touch.
Your in Doreen’s house and she is awesome! Very welcoming and fantastic cook, we had blueberry pancakes that were perfect. It’s breakfast and a SHOW, Doreen knows how to capture your attention, introduced us to Cricket and Gorge and sings and you can’t help but join in. She’s also a comedian ! The Rooms were en-suite super clean included a tv and internet.
Stayed here for one night. room was fine food excellent. did not see her moose. Doreen entertained us after breakfast with songs and got us all up to play the ugly stick. Very close to trans Canada hwy. watch for the sign on your right
Doreen is a lovely host and very helpful to her guests. Breakfast was good and the room was just right. Comfortable and warm. We had a lot of fun after eating as Doreen put on a small show of Newfoundland music, singing, playing spoons and her ugly sticks. Amusing and unusual to be entertained this way. We liked that her home is off the beaten track but sad that no moose visited while we were there.
