The Founders, Bettina Lori and Herbert Schuhmacher

From their first visit in 1994, your hosts, Herbert and Bettina, could think of little else until they moved from Switzerland to Newfoundland three years later. They would tell you it was the call of the wild. Seek their advice on your day’s activities and you’ll discover their utter love and in-depth knowledge of Gros Morne National Park and the neighbouring landscape. “We want to honour our island home by offering a holistic and pleasurable Newfoundland experience with the least possible impact on nature,” says Bettina.

Meet Bettina Lori, the heart and soul behind our establishment, along with her cherished new four-legged companion, Shipu. Despite facing the loss of her late husband in 2017, Bettina keeps Herbert's legacy strong through her unwavering dedication to providing guests with an exceptional experience. Bettina's commitment remains unshakable, a testament to her strength and resilience.

Originally from Switzerland, Herbert and Bettina fell in love with Newfoundland during their first visit in 1994. Three years later, they made it their permanent home, drawn by the allure of the wild, the breathtaking scenery of Gros Morne National Park, and the warmth of the people, whose vibrant culture sealed their decision to stay.

 Bettina is dedicated to offering guests an unforgettable Newfoundland experience while preserving the environment. She shares her local knowledge enthusiastically, contributes to community activities like Search and Rescue, and enjoys outdoor adventures with Shipu. Despite changes, her vibrant spirit ensures every guest feels welcomed and leaves with cherished memories.
