Where to Stay: Central Newfoundland
If you're followers of our instagram, @friendandally, you may have noticed that we took another road trip this summer thanks to Adventure Central NL. Each summer Jess and I get the itch to explore a new area of the island, last year we took a trip to Grand Falls which inspired us to check out more of central Newfoundland. Our weekend road trip stretched over four days and during this time we were able to see a lot of the area. We stayed in three very different locations and loved them all for different reasons.
3 places to stay in central Newfoundland:
Coffee Cove Seaside Retreat
Our first stop on our weekend away was Coffee Cove at the Coffee Cove Sea Side Retreat, this little cove is located just 15 minutes from Springdale. The secluded location makes you feel totally at ease and has two unique options for your stay. You can stay in the "Baker House", a historic traditional Newfoundland saltbox house build in 1890, or, for a more unique experience, the "Lighthouse Cottage" which boasts an amazing view from the top. Nothing tops waking up in the morning to the sound of the ocean from your window and sipping a cup of coffee from the top of a lighthouse. Or getting a shower with a view of sheep grazing in a grassy field.
2. Indian Falls Chalets
From Coffee Cove, we took the short drive to Springdale and stayed at the brand new Indian Falls Chalets. This place is gorgeous! We were blown away by what owners, Michelle and Shawn Rowsell, were able to achieve in just one year. The 4 1/2 star lodge style chalets give you a feeling of relaxation as soon as you open the doors. The design is a gorgeous mix of modern and rustic with clean white walls and light wood A-frame ceiling.
3. 'Ome Sweet 'Ome
Our final stop for the weekend was in Burlington. This was a must see for us this summer because we heard so much about the amazing glamping experience provided by 'Ome Sweet 'Ome and we were not disappointed! It was everything I want in a camping experience. Roughing it without actually roughing it. You arrive to a canvas tent already assembled and when you zip open the door we walked into a magical and colourful bedroom with two double beds, a night stand with working lamp, a cute corner set up with a coffee maker and two chairs for us to sit back and take in the view of our ocean front tent.
