Oceanview Resort: Oceanview Resort in Labrador Straits

The Oceanview Resort is located in the community of West St. Modeste. This is one of the newly renovated places in the area.

It has a bar, a nice dining room and a gift shop. They sometimes have craft displays as well by the Traditional Skills Network that you will find interesting. This is most likely during the busy tourism season.

The Oceanview is close to the Provincial Park in Pinware, the Pinware River and probably central in the Labrador Straits area.

I put their web site address down for you to get more details.

Northern Light Inn: Northern Light Inn

The Northern Light Inn has to be one of Labrador's largest, newest and most popular hotels. With the tour bus industry especially a lot of groups stay at this location.

It has a gift shop, pub, dining room and nice guest rooms. I know a lot of them are newly renovated.

The dining room in this hotel puts out plenty of really good food as well. Like all of my food tips here try the stuff with Bakeapples, its always my favorite!

During the summer tourism season this is probably the only place where the do life dinner theatre performances and they are fun.

I have attended a couple now and they revolve around typicial L'anse au Clair household life back in the early days.

They are humourous but it also gives you a glimpse into what life was and still is like in many homes in this area.

It is a fishing village and this theatre will give you a fun way of learning a little more :-).

Lighthouse Cove Bed and Breakfast: Lighthouse Cove Bed and Breakfast

Well I am not sure where to start with this bed and breakfast but to tell you I have only ever heard the best of stories from from this location. If you like a Bed and Breakfast this may turn out to be one of your best.

I know the owners Rita and Cecil Davis very well now and can tell you the food is as good as your going to find anywhere with all the local berries especially.

Some of the best food I have ever had has been at this location!!!

There is history at this place as well as it relates to the HMS Raleigh disaster, the Davis family has been at this location now for over 150 years.

This area is also going to be very quiet and secluded for you. It is right next to the Point Amour Lighthouse offering plenty of walking opportunities when your not exploring the rest of the region.

There is also a great beach in L'anse Amour that you can basically claim for yourself when staying here. I don't think your going to be disappointed with this choice!

Grenfell Louie A. Hall Bed & Breakfast: Grenfell Louie A. Hall Bed & Breakfast

For one of your nights stay in the Labrador Straits region you might want to consider this place if you like a Bed and Breakfast. It has a lot of history and below is a description from the owners with a bit of history on the building. This place is located right in Forteau Bay.

The Grenfell Louie A. Hall Bed and Breakfast was formally known as the Old Forteau Nursing Station which was built by the International Grenfell Association in 1946. It was called Louie A. Hall nursing Station after its benefactor who donated funds to have it replace Denison Cottage which was built in 1907. Louie Hall was good friend of Lady Grenfell. When she visited in the early 30's and saw the condition of Denison Cottage. She donated funds to build a new hospital in Forteau. But, war broke out before it could be started and it was delayed until 1945 and completed in 1946. In the meantime Ms. Hall passed away, but the nursing Station was still named after her. Louie Hall remained a hospital until it was replaced with a modern facility in 1983. Then it was used as Staff residence until 1992. We purchased it in 1993. Restored it and open as a B and B in July of 1994. Over three generations of people along the Labrador straits was born in this building, including my husband and myself. The land was originally in the James family, which belonged to my great grandfather. Part of the land was given to Dr. Grenfell to build his hospital. We not only purchased the old hospital, but were successful in getting back a plot of land that belonged to my family during the 1800 s. Each guest room is named after different staff or nurses who contributed to Old Nursing Station. There is a display of antiques, reading material and documentary videos available to guests. The living room is available to our guests with a fireplace, tv, VCR stereo patio, etc.

20 minute drive from the ferry.

Open from May 1 to October 30 and by reservations only after November 1.
