Historically, travellers considered stirring views a lodging afterthought until E.M. Forster wrote A Room with a View, chronicling the harrowing story of a young woman leasing a windowless studio apartment. Behold the majesty of a window-framed world with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a one-night stay at Fishers' Loft Inn, located in Port Rexton (up to a $165 value). This Groupon expires May 31.
Awash in bewitching views of Trinity Bay, Fishers' Loft Inn huddles together a collection of hillside-strewn buildings showcasing 19th-century architecture. Wayfarers can settle into in any room type available, including suites (a $165 value/night), hilltop rooms (a $150 value), and garden rooms (a $99 value) nestled along meandering paths where the meadow plays Red Rover with the forest. Accommodations are furnished with queen-sized or twin beds draped in down duvets (synthetic available), ensuite baths stocked with L’Occitane toiletries and locally made artisan furniture that complements the buildings' period architecture. As an active part of the staff, the Fisher family sees to guests’ comfort with complimentary WiFi, nontoxic cleaning products, and pillows made of chocolate.
Dining options of a four-course dinner ($55) or breakfast ($16) may be added, serving set menus made from local ingredients. The coastal area supplies diverse recreational options, including scenic hikes such as the Skerwink Trail, seasonal attractions, and boat tours to see whales, seabirds, and maritime melodramas performed on icebergs.
