There is one bedroom located on the first floor of the house and 1 bedroom and 2 bathrooms (one with stand up shower. one with shower/tub) located on the second floor. The first floor also has an L shaped sitting/dining/kitchen area with single pull out couch. up to 5 people can stay in the Gover House if the pull-out couch is used (rate is based on 4 guests). A private deck is located adjacent to the house. The Gover House Vacation Home is located 1 minute by foot from the Twine Loft.

One of the great advantages of an Artisan Inn Vacation Home is that the inn’s staff are on hand to provide assistance to guests with self-catering homes. If the wi-fi is down, you cannot operate the TV, if you experience a plumbing issue or if you just need directions to the nearest grocery store, just let us know.
Breakfast and daily turndown services are not included with vacation home rentals.
Please note that some decorative items featured in the photos may have been removed from the home to reduce unnecessary touch points.
Traditionally, guests must check in at the Artisan Inn’s office located on the second floor of the Twine Loft, where they will receive a town orientation and be taken into their vacation home by a staff member.

STANDARD POLICIES & COVID-19 UPDATES:
CLEANING FEE: A $35 cleaning fee is applied to each booked accommodation to cover the additional materials and human resources required to clean a property in a manner that protects both staff and guests from contact with Covid-19. We have always prided ourselves on cleanliness which is why our added cleaning fee is fairly minimal. We do need to disinfect and not just clean certain items in the house that typically would not have been disinfected in the past (ex the lock mechanism of every window, the pull cord of every blind, every dish in the house even if it has been washed already by the previous guests.) If a room or house is booked for multiple days, the cleaning fee is charged ONCE for that entire reservation. If multiple accommodations are reserved in a booking, a cleaning fee will be applied to each separate accommodation booked. EX. Someone booking 2 different vacation homes to accommodate a group would pay a $70 cleaning fee ($35 per property).
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF GUESTS: If you are renting other properties with us or in the area, please be advised that that the province of Newfoundland and Labrador has restrictions on the size of gatherings permitted. Should these restrictions be lifted, please be aware that the Artisan Inn still has its own max capacity limit. The max number of guests who may sleep in this house is 5 people and only guests staying in the property may enter it to protect our staff from additional exposure. Given Covid-19 concerns the inn will be strict with enforcing this policy and guests will be required to sign a compliance waiver recognizing our rental policies. There is a $25 charge for the 5th guest and linens will be provided for the pull out couch.
RENTAL POLICIES: Pets, Smoking, the Cooking of Shellfish, Parties and Wedding Related Events are not permitted
