ACCOMMODATION

The Glynmill Inn

Corner Brook, Newfoundland

The Glynmill Inn, with “unparalleled ambiance in old English style,” juts up through the maples in the center of Corner Brook’s majesty. Nestled in a panoramic garden, the white and green Tudor-style roof peaks will warmly invite you to come by. It seems as though the city of Corner Brook has grown around us, yet afforded us seclusion. Surrounded by trees and our own pond, the Glynmill Inn offers the intimacy of a tranquil resort.

On March 31, 2001, The Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador designated The Glynmill Inn a Registered Heritage Structure.
