On the way to fishing camps in the remote sub-arctic wilderness of Western Labrador we got to enjoy the efficient, comfortable and warmly welcoming hospitality of the Two Seasons ("Winter" and "Road Building Ahead") Inn. Labrador City is 350 extra long miles north of Baie Comeau, on the western shore of the St. Lawrence. The 8 1/2-plus hour drive from Baie Comeau on gravel (mostly) and blacktop across mostly pristine, unpopulated land ends in Labrador City. It's an iron ore mining town whose boom is cloaked in the engaging understatement that is a feature of Canadians (when not on the hockey rink). The Two Seasons Inn (can't be missed; it's to the right of the first of two traffic lights in town, as one arrives from the south) turned out to be a perfect stop. Spic and span rooms with excellent beds, modern bathrooms, a convivial bar, blitz-fast internet connections and a restaurant with food that vastly exceeded expectations. In this writer's opinion it's a top stop in a part of the world where you're most likely to find rusticity and limited amenities.
