It’s a warm summer's evening and my window is open. I smell the soft salty breezes. I’m looking out my room window and I see whales spouting, I see a 10,000 year old iceberg beginning to crack under the orange sky and the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen in all my life. 

Want to create memories like these that will last a lifetime? Be daring, be different- go somewhere unique. Drop your anchor at the Four Star Harbour Quarters Inn in Bonavista, NL. and let us be your doorstep to the most memorable vacation of your life.

Located directly on the Bonavista Harbour Front, the Harbour Quarters is a registered Heritage Inn, built circa 1920 and was completely restored in 2004. Each room is furnished with locally made, award-winning furniture, queen sized beds with posturepedic mattresses, is fully air conditioned and offers exquisite views of our captivating coastline. With a restaurant on-site, Skipper’s offers a wide menu of traditional, homemade Newfoundland meals. From our ‘tundern flats’ to our famous fish cakes (as recognized by The Globe & Mail as being “second to none”), you’ll be sure to satisfy your palette-whatever your choice.

We are located in the heart of Bonavista and are within walking distance of several historic sites.  Just a few steps away you’ll find The Ryan Premises National Historic Site of Canada and across our working harbour lies The Matthew Legacy Building and Interpretation Centre, which holds a replica of John Cabot’s Ship “The Matthew.” Deciding on a more relaxing, leisurely route? Take a stroll through our downtown area and take in our colorful, historic houses and buildings, most of which have recently undergone a tremendous facelift. Drop into our local pub and have yourself “screeched in”- kiss a cod and recite some traditional Newfoundland gibberish. Your drive through Church Street will have you slowing to a turtle’s pace, so we suggest you walk. It’s literally minutes away and besides, what better way to spend your time than in the refreshing Saltwater air?

With 12 rooms, including two suites, private bath, gift shop, and a fully licensed restaurant with bar/lounge and outdoor patio, why not choose The Harbour Quarters as your port of comfort on your journey to discover.
