“Wonderful time here, super choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

We were recently in L"Anse Aux Meadows for a four generation vacation. We chose to stay at the Snorri Cabins and we were so glad we did. The eight of us had two rooms side by side. One had two bedrooms and the other one bedroom. Both were very clean, very spacious ( the kids had a sleepover in our cabin for the two nights we were there and there was lots of room). The cabins were very close to L'Anse Aux Meadows and there was nice restaurant down the road.
I would definately stay here again

My wife, three daughters and myself had a great time at L'Ans aux Meadows! This was 100% due to the owners of Snorri Cabins. I can not praise them enough. We drove all the way from Virginia to see where my norse forefathers had made camp roughly a 1000 years ago. When we arrived at L'Ans aux Meadows our car broke down, and it was brought into a shop. We could have been stuck at the cabin, and not gotten the chance to see the area. But, Ford Blake (owner) and his wife let us borrow their car free of charge for the duration of our stay. This kind of kindness and sincere consideration for fellow human beings is not something one experiences a lot of these days. The owners are truly good hearted folks that we came to like very much. In addition to their cabins they also have a nice convenience store and a bar that serves some of the best burgers I've tasted. Really good old fashioned burger patties, accompanied with tasty Iceberg beer! Highly recommended !!! A+++

I went back and forth - and back and forth - whether to stay near L'Anse Aux Meadows or stay in St. Anthony's and drive to the site. We had two nights and I'm so glad we chose to stay near L'Anse Aux Meadows, and particularly at Snorri Cabins.

The accommodation was terrific - spotlessly clean, well equipped, fast wi-fi - everything we needed. And the owners are lovely and very welcoming.

We found it was best to stay near the site so we could see all the area has to offer - and we went into St. Anthony's one day for a boat ride and to look around.

We highly recommend Snorri Cabins!

Just got back from a fifteen day tour of Newfoundland (not near enough time). Part of the experience was going to the Viking dig at L'Anse aux Meadows. While there we decided to stay at Snorri Cabins; which turned out to be a good choice. WE found the unit to be spacious and clean and our stay was trouble free. The people in the area are great and there is some very good eateries near by. If you like history, it's a must see and Snorri is a good place to stay.

We found this place on trip advisor and due to the proximity of L'anse Aux Meadows and Norstead, decided to book it. I'm sure glad we did! We only stayed a night, but arrived early afternoon.

Check In: Checked in up the road at the "cash and carry" got our key, an offer to call or drop in if we needed anything, and were on our way in about 3 minutes,

The Cabin: (cabin 2) So clean, wow! Also, I think the owners really put a lot of thought into outfitting the cabin, as the kitchen had everything you could need. Newer full size appliances, tons of equipment, linens, soap and a microwave. They also provided a couple BBQ's outside, which we took advantage of. The freezer was great for us as we froze a bunch of water overnight so we had it for the next day in our coolers.

The bed was really comfortable with nice linens and a pretty quilt on it. The bathroom was super clean and had everything we needed.

Water pressure was weak when someone else was using it in another cabin, but by no means inadequate....although if everyone was using it at the same time...you never know. Wireless was fine with our devices, and free!

Would stay again and definitely recommend to friends and family.

Nice, clean, large cabins well equipped for a family of four.
Given the beauty of the surroundings, maybe the view could be better, but it is very conveniently located near UNESCO site and other local attractions.

We were in the St. Anthony area in early July without reservations, and lots of places were either full or extremely expensive. We lucked into the Snorri Cabins. They are very handy to L'Anse aux Meadows. The "cabin" was actually a small apartment, great for a stay of a few days. The only downer was that the internet connection was weak, and at times completely inaccessible. The water might put off city people as it is a little coloured, but it is not hard or off-tasting. All in all, we were very pleased there.
