Reviewed August 10, 2012

We stayed at the Inn for one night in August 2012. Having grown up visiting family in the area, I am quite familiar with Lumsden, which is one of Newfoundland's best-kept secrets: beautiful scenery, gorgeous beaches and very friendly people. For years, there was nowhere to stay unless you camped at Windbill Bight (not a bad idea, that) or were fortunate enough to have relatives or friends in the area. We came home during a busy time and decided to try out the accommodations at Barbour's and were not disappointed. The room we stayed in was bigger than many hotel rooms we have stayed in with a queen-sized bed, spacious seating area with television and full 4-piece bathroom and was very clean and comfortable. It was a hot day when we arrived and, air conditioning not normally being required in this part of the world, the windows were shut and curtains drawn to keep the room cool. The inn provides a large living area for guests to use, as well as a dining area and kitchen which is available for anyone to get themselves a cup of tea, a slice of homemade banana bread or a date square (provided). We were told that breakfast would be served between 8 and 9 a.m. However, a late night the night before meant that we were not up and running until closer to 10 a.m. Patsy, the owner, without being asked immediately offered breakfast to us anyway, which turned out to be a hearty meal of scrambled eggs, toast made of homemade bread with homemade jam, juice, coffee and our choice of sausage or fried bologna (also known as Newfie steak!) All this for less than $100! I would highly recommend this place.

We spent an night here in early June, 2012. Patsy is a gracious host, giving us the run of the property including help yourself in the kitchen. The rooms were clean and attractive. The property has rooms in the main building as well as cabins on the property. Conveniently located. Good value.

We had one of the cabins which had 2 rooms and a partial kitchen (no stove). The owner is very friendly and nice, and ensured she passed along messages to us which she had received from friends staying elsewhere. The cabins were very cute and clean but quite tiny; there is little room to move around, particularly in the bedrooms. The cabins are fairly close to stores and to Windmill Bite Park. We were disappointed that the firepits were so far away from the cabins. Promised wi-fi internet, but this did not work unless you were at the main office.

We stayed at this inn because it advertised that it had a restaurant. When we checked in we discovered that it had closed, and there is no other restaurant in Lumsden. Beyond this the rooms are clean, spaceous, and quiet, and the owner hospitable. You also have access to the kitchen in the evening for coffee etc. With a restaurant we would return again.

Barbour's Country Inn tends to bill itself as a B&B. The rooms feel like a nice wooden mountain chalet. The rooms are huge. Unfortunately this also contributes to its downfall experienced in staying there for a night.

A feature of each room is a TV. The TV is at the opposite end of the large room. To hear the TV, you need to turn up the volume. The TV is against the wall where onhttps://tonic.tripadvisor.com/SavedPhotos-i26316135%2C26316138%2C26316140%2C26316142-w1#26316135 the other side
is the head of the next room's bed. If you are sensitive to TV noise, like me, it will not be a happy stay if you have a TV watcher in the next room. My suggestion to the establishment is to remove the TVs from each room as there is a large TV in the common room.

There is a kitchen area but breakfast is a coupon for the restaurant next door. Free wireless internet access is available.

I would rate this place higher if it were not for the TV noise issue.
