This was our only bad experience in Newfoundland. We booked this location based on their internet site and reviews. The reviews that we saw and those printed in the cabin guidebook happened to be several years old and the website is horribly outdated. We were promised an amazing restaurant on site, ( the website talks about it prominently) . The truth is that there is no restaurant, there is also no convenience store or bakery on site. It is a long drive to the nearest store for food and when we asked about restaurants nearby , they suggested St John's !
The cabin did not have cold running water in the kitchen, only hot water. The place was quite dirty, mould in the bathroom, stained furniture that was torn and had been fixed with staples. The curtains had not seen a cleaning in ages, damaged walls, screens that did not fit the windows ( we were given a roll of tape to close the holes). The towels were old, and fraying. the bathroom sink leaked. It just went on and on. My 8 year old cried the first night and did not want to use the shower. We were also surprised when we arrived, we found that the cabins back onto a trailer park. We were still awake at 1:00 in the morning, loud music and bad language, was not what we expected. ( the rules in the cabin guide state that no loud noise will be tolerated after 11:00) We felt mislead and let down. We scrambled to find another place to stay and a few days later were glad to leave.
