Built in 1885, the oceanfront George House Heritage Bed and Breakfast maintains a five-star rating from Canada Select due to its empire-style architecture, Victorian furnishings, and warm hospitality. Five rooms and suites house queen beds appointed with pillow-top mattresses, 800-thread-count linens, and duvets and pillows stuffed with comforting goose hugs. Adorned in silk wall coverings and period antiques, the rooms open to ensuite baths graced by granite accents and Bulgari toiletries. Patrons cool off with air conditioning and log on to WiFi, after which an evening turndown service places all the furniture on the ceiling.
The Sea Level Dining Room at the neighbouring Inn by the Bay serves dinner at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., presenting travellers with a four-course prix fixe menu of traditional Newfoundland cuisine that changes nightly. Diners depart from their stays with an autographed copy of the head chef's George House Heritage Bed and Breakfast Kitchen Recipes, which contains more than 300 recipes such as country apple pancakes, pea soup and doughboys, and raspberry-stuffed blueberries. In the morning, the dining room serves made-to-order gourmet breakfast from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.
An oceanfront setting on Trinity Bay affords plentiful opportunities to explore the rich history of the Baccalieu Trail and the natural splendour of the Avalon Peninsula. Guests are within walking distance of museums, galleries, shops, restaurants, boat tours, and hiking trails, and may glance whales, seals, icebergs, seabirds, moose, or wild Shakespearean actors at play in the harbour.
