Finding the Best Accommdations, Boutique Hotels, and Guesthouses in Newfoundland

When choosing accommodation for your Newfoundland Atlantic Canadian adventure, be choosy. There are a lot of great places out there to choose from, so take your time and select a Newfoundland Accommodation with five-star reviews and lots of ratings. Pick a spot with a reputation for sparkling clean suites, along with all the features and amenities you want.

It is especially important to know how to be picky when booking accommodations near St. John’s Newfoundland where it often pays dividends to do your homework before finalizing a vacation rental booking. Is a private hot tub overlooking humpback whale feeding grounds part of your wish list? If yes, take the time to search out a guesthouse, boutique hotel, or wilderness retreat that meets and exceeds your expectations. After all, you only live once.

Choose Vacation Rentals with private entrances to the outdoors

Meeting people is part of the adventure, but when it comes to your accommodation, private and exclusive is best. When deciding where to stay, choose a vacation rental that is private, with its own outdoor entrance and no shared spaces. This will give you control over who is in your bubble and let you retreat to your own private space. 

The best Newfoundland accommodations in 2022 feature self-check-in, private entrances to the outdoors, locations that are close to everything, and amenities like stargazing hot tubs and private balconies.

Rent a place with contactless self-check-in

Gone are the days of meeting a property owner or lounging in a lobby with a bunch of strangers while waiting for someone to give you a key or show you to your room.

Today, many modern Atlantic boutique hotels, guesthouses, and vacation rentals offer contactless self-check-in, and if they don’t, keep looking until you find one.

Self-check-in means you get a key code and directions on how to access your rental before you arrive.

This way, there is no need to meet another person or show up at a specific time. Arrive at your vacation rental when you want and do your own thing without having to work around another person’s schedule. Not only does this greatly limit your unnecessary contacts, but it also keeps your Atlantic Bubble travel experience more relaxed and zen, two of our favourite things.

Stand-Up Paddleboarding, Kayaking, and Snorkeling are great ways to explore the protected coastlines of the Witless Bay Marine Ecological Reserve

Plan unique Newfoundland outdoor activities and adventures to fully experience this special place

This is a great time of year to explore the outdoors, so be sure to take full advantage. Picnics near the lighthousehikes on the east coast trail, and whale watching from land or a boat are easy and accessible activities everyone can enjoy.

If you’re looking to go further and explore more, everything from a SUP paddleboarding lesson to a guided walk through a world UNESCO heritage site is a great option.

Keep your Atlantic Travel Plans loose and flexible

Keep a loose itinerary and embrace change as part of the adventure. It’s important to do some planning, but it’s inevitable that some parts of your Atlantic Bubble travel adventure will be impromptu and unexpected. Go with it and enjoy the journey, which some suggest is even more important than the destination. 

Book your 2022 Newfoundland Accommodations Early

With a lot of demand out there, the best places often book up quickly. This is not only true for vacation rentals in boutique hotels, guesthouses, and popular wilderness retreats. Marine Atlantic Ferry reservations, rental cars, and air travel are all things you want to secure well in advance.

In this area, a little planning goes a long way.
