Our adventure to Labrador was quite an experience.
We took the ferry from St. Barbe to Porte de Blanc (which actually arrives in Quebec). That in itself is quite the experience. We then drove along the coast of Labrador in the fog and rain through rugged country of scrub brush and rock, a real sense of Canadian venturing into the life of Viking and Pioneers. Did not know that one does not go to Labrador in July or August. BEWARE BLACK FLIES IN JULY & AUGUST. Not like we have in Ontario. These are everywhere and overbearing at this time of the year. Otherwise a delightful place with kind generous folk that yearn for cooler weather (no Black flies)

The Grenfell Louie A. Hall is a wonderful historic building in Fourteau, built as a nursing station to serve the community. The founder, Dr. Grenfell was a medical doctor from the UK who came to Newfoundland and Labrador and helped the people in the area organise rights for fisherman and workers and establish communities along the coast of Labrador.

The Grenfell A. Louie Hall is owned and operated by the original family that donated the land to Dr. Grenfell to build the out post nursing station. The home was once a nursing station that served the Forteau area. The owner Peggy and her husband Dwight were both born in this nursing station. Peggy’s daughter was also born here.
Grenfell Hall is a superb historic site filled with history and antiques reflected of its time. Peggy has meticulously documented the history with photos and memorabilia throughout her home.

When we arrived Peggy & Dwight were out fishing with her family for salmon…their group was ousted by a black bear. (But not before they caught some fish)

Early morning brought us fishermen tending to their traps and a lovely sunrise over the misty foggy hills and bay

Lovely place to stay. Very rustic, lots of history. Very friendly people.
B&B was very clean. Our room was quite. Shared bathroom .. But no concerns... breakfast was self serve (only because we were up early to and on the road at 6:30 a.m.)

A Must see... check out the "Out Back Lounge" in the local restaurant in town … a definite highlight.. Friendly, rustic, cold beer and darts...Memories of Kenora, Ontario circa 1969

The ferry ride back was awesome … icebergs. Porpoises... Lots of fresh air, sunshine and coffee.. not to mention smooth sailing awesome

Beautiful and historic, a great place for kids. I real find in an isolated part of the world. Former hospital, the rooms were clean and breakfast was very good. There are 2 bathrooms whoever they are shared among the guests. Nice view of the bay and a very short walk to the village wharf. Would stay again if travelling to the labrador Straits.

Very nice building with a lot of history. There owners were quite friendly, and liked to sit around at the end of the day and chat.

We stayed in an off-season time, but the service was still quite nice and there was plenty of hospitality.

The rooms were quiet, surprising for such an old house, and even in November they were warm. The mattresses were soft and comfortable.

No wireless internet was offered, though the owner did allow use of her personal computer.

Nothing fancy. Clean rooms, great price. We booked last minute in route from Newfoundland before we hopped on the ferry. The innkeeper was very helpful. I would recommend this to anyone looking for accommodations in the area.
