As my sales trip was going to allow me to have the weekend in Newfoundland and I will be required to spend 6 days in hotels I wanted something more like home for the weekend. I found Riverfront in the NFLD Guide and contacted them and boy am I glad I did. Although I never met the owners they seemed very pleasant in our emails exchange. These chalets are well maintained and laid out with loads of room, way more then I would need. I love the fact that they charge your cc before you arrive (normal for this type of accommodation) and then all you have to do is go to your assigned cabin and every thing is there for you, so refreshing when you arrive late especially. The chalet was spotless and had everything you need for a good nights sleep. I was a little surprised how close to the highway it is but except a few large trucks you really don't hear the traffic at all and the little you do hear is not disruptive of the peacefulness. I sadly did not have a chance to explore the beautiful surroundings as I arrived late and it was raining the next day plus not having hunters orange vest I would not want to do to much walking in the woods in hunting season. However it was so nice to open the patio door and hear the river running while eating breakfast. Sadly i could not eat outside as again it was raining and the patio is not covered and there is no umbrella. In saying that the kitchen table is right in front of the window so you still get to see the tranquil scenery. The bathroom is huge and the soak-er tub although a bit small for me (6'4") was still very relaxing. I might at as a suggestion to the owners that a note by the tub explaining that if the jets are used that they will self clean later on, as it was a bit of a concern and surprising after going to bed and hearing them, not a big deal but it does kinda startle you at night lol. The furniture is tasteful and comfortable. and the wood walls give off a very nice aroma. The only complaint I have and this is not their fault as the type of internet service they have to use as they are not in a city, it is very slow and unreliable. I had to tether my phone to get some work done and this review done again this is not an issue that the owners can do anything about as I had a similar service at my cottage and it is what it is. I am just pointing out in case the internet is a major requirement of anyone reading this review. I will be more then glad to return here if my travels and their availability allows. If you are like me and are traveling allot and what a break from hotels check them out, you will be glad you did. If you are traveling for pleasure and want a great place to stay then same thing check them out you will be glad you did. PS there is a a great bbq on the deck, not a cheap one like allot of places have, so if you love to bbq this is a huge plus! I did not get to enjoy the hottub but love the fact it is saltwater and wish i could have, imagine sitting in the great outdoors in a hot tub in Late Sept or even better in the winter! Great job and thumbs up goes out to these owners!
