Shallow Bay Motel (Cow Head, Newfoundland)

The Shallow Bay Motel is conveniently located to allow day excursions to nearby Western Brook Pond. In addition, you can spend the remainder of the day trekking as well as visiting The Arches - Parsons Pond.

At night you can walk next door to the Warehouse Theatre and immerse yourself in a couple of hours of Newfoundland folklore and history. These plays are highly entertaining and add a measurable richness to your trip.

General impressions:

The Shallow Bay Motel provides full services. The dining room menu offers a wide selection at reasonable prices. After a day spent riding or trekking, you can unwind in the outside heated pool as well as take a soothing sauna and head to the bar for a pre-dinner beverage.

The popular Gros Morne Theatre Festival, held at the Warehouse Theatre during the summer season, is not to be missed.

note: If you plan on attending a play, it would be prudent to arrange for a stay at the motel. This would ensure that you avoid riding through Gros Morne National Park at night. It's dark, mountainous, and there is an abundant and active moose population. You've been warned.
