|Fog bank rolling in, Cape Onion, NL|
The nearby towns of Ship Cove, NL and Raleigh, NL have very limited services. The Tickle Inn is a bed & breakfast, that also has an option of an evening meal. This was nice for two reasons; Sophie is a great cook and it saves you from a long drive in the evening getting to a restaurant and back.
They'll even sell you a bottle of wine to enjoy with your dinner. We had an amazing afternoon with a glass of wine on the front lawn just enjoying the view.
Update to this blog: We have learned that the owner's of the Tickle Inn have retired and are no longer taking guests. You can still visit their website, they have published a cookbook.
|View of Tickle Inn from Treen'a Trail|
For hikers, you can start on Treena's Trail right in front of the inn. Going west from the inn you climb up a large hill. It's an easy trail with stairs installed. From the hill looking east you can see the Tickle Inn and also the large bay that separates Cape Onion from L'Anse aux Meadows. Looking to the west, on a clear day, you can see the Labrador coast.
Tickle Inn is an ideal location to stay for visiting L'Anse aux Meadows, St. Anthony and Burnt Cape.
