Joan's place is lovely. Spotlessly clean, wonderful breakfast. There was plenty of firewood for us to use. She also had two kayaks for guests to use on the pond. She was so hospitable to our dog as well.

My stay at Joan’s was amazing! The loft space is cozy, sparkling clean, and incredibly comfortable. Every morning Joan makes a huge breakfast - with absolutely everything you could dream of! It is secluded, but only a ten minute drive from Bay Bulls (30 minutes from St. John’s). …
