In 1971, Garland and Florence Parsons started Parsons’ Cabins in the town of Rocky Harbour, soon to become the administrative centre of Gros Morne National Park , which was inaugurated in 1974.
Mr. Parsons, a veteran of World War II, and Mrs. Parsons, a gifted cook of local cuisine, had anticipated the wave of tourists that would visit the future UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As visitors from around the world discovered the beauty Gros Morne National Park, the Parsons establishment became renowned for it’s delicious traditional meals, which continue to this day.
When failing health compelled the original owners to pass the business over to their youngest son in 1999, it went through a series of expansions and renovations to keep pace with the growing number of visitors to the increasingly popular national park.
Now owned and operated by son Sid, and supported by a team of dedicated staff, Parsons’ Harbour View Cabins continues to evolve and expand. With new kitchen services, planned landscaping, and renovated cabins, this establishment has a bright new face for the future.
