Winter in northwestern Newfoundland is like a postcard, with its picturesque mountains, ever-falling white powdery snow, and quaint little fishing and ski towns, this is as close to picture perfect as it gets.
The towns of Steady Brook and Corner Brook are nestled into the base of the mountains and at the mouth of the Humber River. Home to some of the best skiing east of the Rockies, and the highest vertical slope in Atlantic Canada, Marble Mountain is one of the large draws to this area in the winter. If you are on the hunt for the perfect winter weekend getaway, or a place to call home-base for your skiing vacation, this is the place to be.
Here is our experience at the Marblewood Village Resort!
Airport: The closest airport to Marblewood Village Resort is Deer Lake Regional Airport. From there you will need to take a cab or rent a car for the 30 minute drive from the airport to the resort.
Marblewood Village Resort offers 1 to 4 bedroom condos that are fully self-contained suites. Each condo includes full kitchens including stove, dishwasher, fridge, pots & pans, utensils, and much more. The couch in front of the electric fireplace, with the flat screen tv above it, is perfect place to snuggle up with a warm cup of cocoa after a cold day of adventuring outside.
There are 24 condo units in total, all which come completely furnished and outfitted with linens, towels, and toiletries.
We rented a one bedroom condo, and it was absolutely perfect! We were pleasantly surprised when we unlocked the door to see how roomy it was. The bedroom had a full size closet, was outfitted with a queen bed, two bedside tables, and a bench for additional storage.
Whether to make dinner, or just a pot of coffee, the full kitchen is a nice amenity whatever your needs may be throughout your stay. We took full advantage of the two comfy leather couches and the HD Cable TV.
The bathrooms had some nice touches, including the heat lamp that helped warm up the bathroom on chilly mornings. With lots of storage under the sink, you could easily and very comfortably stay in one of these condos for quite some time.
With their upscale cottage feel, these condos are exactly what you need whether for an overnight stay as you are passing through or a long term visit as you explore the area. Our only regret about Marblewood Village Resort is that we didn’t stay longer to enjoy this beautiful mountain chalet!
There are no on-site restaurants or dining halls you can go to while staying at Marblewood Village Resort, but why would you want to when you have access to a full kitchen! That is one of our favourite features about this place, as we often get tired of eating out every night while we are on the road. We loved that we could just pick up some groceries and have a good home-cooked meal.
If you are looking for a quick bite to , there is a Tim Hortons and convenience store just down the road on Thistle Road (290 m).
