Nestled in the forested hillside bordering Gros Morne National Park in Western Newfoundland & Labrador, the Gros Morne Inn offers luxury accommodations, fine dining, and four-seasons of outdoor exploration and adventure.
The Gros Morne Inn will debut in spring 2022. The Inn’s owners, local entrepreneurs Ian Stone and Rebecca Brushett, are dedicated to bringing travelers to the region for a sustainable, once-in-a-lifetime experience of the region’s rugged coastlines, massive fjords, and colorful forests.
Boasting ocean and mountain views from each of the 15 guestrooms, the boutique Inn’s interiors are inspired by the clean lines, natural light, and color palette from the surrounding environment, with local wildlife and marine artwork featured throughout. The Inn’s flexible layout can accommodate a variety of booking types such as friends, couples, small and large families, and groups up to 42. Opening rates will begin at $375 CA per night.
Among the Inn’s amenities are an outdoor spa space with cedar-jetted tubs and a private sauna arranged for an unobstructed view of Bonne Bay, a grand patio for pristine dark sky viewing, as well as a gym and indoor and outdoor event space. Taste, the Inn’s restaurant, will offer seasonal fine dining with a menu of sustainably caught seafood and locally grown products from nearby farms.
With sustainability at the core of its mission, the eco-friendly boutique Inn has repurposed or rehomed as much as possible from the original structure. The Inn operations will adhere to a strict circular business model by eliminating single-use plastics, composting of unused foods, and transitioning towards electric and hybrid vehicles. Renewable energy like solar and hydroelectricity will be utilized to reduce its overall carbon footprint and any carbon offset dollars from visitors will be donated to a local non-profit. Through its partnership with the Atlantic Healthy Oceans Initiative (AHOI), the Gros Morne Inn is working to become one of the only Ocean Wise certified Seafood Partners in NL and a B Corp establishment to ensure the highest standards of social and environmental performance are met.
By partnering with Tour Gros Morne, guests can customize their experience of Gros Morne National Park, with day hikes on the Tablelands and three, five, and seven-day tours featuring boat excursions of Western Brook Pond Fjord, strolls along the volcanic coastline of Green Gardens, and more. Taste of Gros Morne offers local seafood tours, picturesque picnics, and other culinary experiences.
