My Story

Tanya was born and raised in Ontario, Brad is from Trinity East NL. We met back in 2008, we have been together ever since. We got married in 2012, as I have stated we have 3 children between us. We were both managers for a big company but decided that it was no longer rewarding for us. So we decided that we would move from Ontario to Newfoundland and make a new life here is Historic Port Union South. 


We opened The Harbouside Inn & Café in 2022, working with people has always been something we loved, so we thought this was the right choice. We absolutely love what we do! We have met so many wonderful people from all around the world. We hope that you come and stay with us and let us show you what we offer. There are so many amazing things to explore!



The Harbourside Inn is a Heritage House, built in 1920.


Port Union is the only town in Canada founded by a union. In 1916, the Fishermen's Protective Union, led by William Coaker, began constructing buildings along an empty stretch of shoreline. By 1926, the union had established premises for its retail, export, shipbuilding and publishing companies; the town also included a large meeting hall, a railway station, a church, and duplexes for workers. A hydro-electric plant, located over a kilometre away, supplied the community. The town's original layout and many intact buildings speak to its commercial and industrial success during is heyday (1918-1925) as a vibrant international port. 


We are a 4 Star Inn that offers stunning rooms, all with private ensuites, home cooked breakfast of your choice included in our rates. We offer everything you need for your home away from home. Our Inn is located in the Historical Port Union. The Inn offers a historical look with a modern touch.

There is so much to do in this area. directly across the street you can visit the geo park fossils, also a 2 min walk from our front door takes you to Murphy to Lodges pond hiking trail, so much to explore....
