Plus house guests will enjoy communal meals with home cooked meals at our getaway house and trips to some of our favourite St. John’s dining spots including to Bob Hallett’s restaurant Tavola, and plenty of free time for you to write songs and enjoy the local culture. Guests will also have the opportunity to add on an optional boat tour looking for whales, puffins, & other seabirds. Full itinerary coming soon!
