Definitely a hidden gem in Glovertown. The Inn is situated across from the harbour and has lovely gardens. Interior has wounderful decor. Stayed in Susie's room with the large balcony overlooking the gardens. The owner, Keith, recommended Happy Adventure restaurant to us which was a 25min drive. Turned out to be the most beautiful drive we've had over the past two weeks, highly recommend, the restaurant was very good too. Keith provided us with a delicious breakfast of yogat and fruit followed by a fruit and berry crepe drizzled with chocolalte. Thank you Keith for another lovely moment on our adventure in Newfoundland.

We were a party of 4, using 2 rooms on 2 separate nights on our way to and from Gros Morne. We were quite pleased with the accommodations and breakfasts. Keith is a delight to talk with, whether about touring Newfoundland or about his personal experiences. We've been staying in B&Bs in the U.S. and Canada for over 20 years. We've had a few experiences that we wouldn't want to repeat, but The Lilac Inn is a place that we wouldn't hesitate to return to or to refer to a friend. Thanks for the good experience, Keith.

We spent 2 nights in Sarah's room, August 6 & 7. A room fit for a princess -- or 3 princesses. :) Keith is a fabulous host, very warm and welcoming and ensures everything is just perfect. Lilac Inn has my highest recommendations and I will spread the word. My 88-yr old Mom, my sister and I enjoyed every minute. Would not change a thing, only to extend our stay. Keep up the great work! It's such a pleasure to be so welcomed and at home in a "home away from home"

Thank you so much for opening your beautiful home to us. I felt like a princess in the Four Poster Bed. Beautiful B&B but the best was the host, Keith. Most welcoming like an old friend would be. Its a mistake to come for one night, three days are needed to explore the area. Salvage, Burnside, Sandy Cove are a must, they are the best examples of what Newfoundland is all about.We leave with a warm heart! "some good bye"
