Homemade bread and preserves are our way of sharing a little of the traditional Newfoundland and Labrador experience. We want our guests to feel both welcome and comfortable; we are pleased that we succeeded in making you feel "at home". We are also pleased that you enjoyed both your stay and the area. Come again.
