Quirpon Lighthouse Inn - SusieQQ??

Jump to last reply

Newfoundland has been in the back of my mind for a little while now, and I recently stumbled onto Quirpon Lighthouse Inn. I'm thinking of possibly going there for a solo trip in June, but after seeing how far and remote it is, I' m beginning to think of alternate places. I'm female, have never traveled solo, mid 40's, live in northeast, USA, and not really athletic. Yet...despite all this, for some crazy reason, I am drawn to Newfoundland in general, and this place in particular - and I'm not quite sure why..

I have just started to research this, but just wanted to ask if anyone would be willing to provide any opinions or suggestions.
I'm most concerned about:
1- logistics of how to get there - it seems best to fly into Deer Lake airport, then rent a car and drive to the end, then take a ferry? Do you take the rental car with you on the ferry? Any problem on the long drive? How long of a car ride is it?
2- is this trip too ambitious for a first solo trip? Do you think I should perhaps go somewhere else in Newfoundland - St. John's for example?
3- oh, are the black flies really that bad?

I started researching this a little late...if anyone at all can provide any information, I thank you all in advance. I just joined Fodor, and just getting familar with this forum, so any pointers/suggestions is much appreciated!

SusieQQ - I saw that the only search results that came up with this INN, was your post in 2006, so if you especially would be able to give me any insight/opinions, I'd greatly appreciate it!!
thank you.
