Nestled comfortably in the Heritage District of St. John's is Winterholme Heritage Inn & Spa. Built between 1905-1907 for Sir Marmaduke Winter, the house is bold and handsome and, at the time of its completion, was one of the most expensive private dwellings ever built in Newfoundland. In 1993 this magnificent property was restored to a single family home and today is a 4-star Heritage Inn with 8 well-appointed suites, an in-house spa service and a large main floor that is often used for special functions. I had the absolute pleasure of spending an evening is this expansive property that is an absolute must see for any self-respecting traveller.

Now entering it's 11th year, The Leyton Gallery of Fine Art carries some of the most important rising national and international artists living and working in Eastern Canada. Works range from realism to emotionalism to abstract symbolic work. They carry paintings, prints, and sculpture and will ship anywhere in the world. I sat down with owner Bonnie Leyton and Manager Tia Connolly to talk art, community and their unique venue.
Festivals and events are great, but St. John's has goings on that you'll want to plan your trip around! With something for everyone all year 'round, you can beat a St. John's time!
