About Salmonier Country Manor

Salmonier Country Manor “The Convent Inn” is located in Mount Carmel,

overlooking the Beautiful waters of St. Mary's Bay, Newfoundland.

Originally built as a Convent for the Presentation Congregation, the Manor has been beautifully converted into an elegant, yet cozy Bed and Breakfast.  The Convent was originally built by the Parishioners of the area in 1967 and was used by the Parish until its closure in 1994.  Much of the original wood came from buildings taken down at the US Naval base in nearby Argentia.

The Dining hall was originally the Nuns chapel, and one of the original pews remain in the foyer as you enter. The Convents original 10 bedrooms, known as the "Cells" were converted to create the 7 suites now available at The Manor.  The Sacristy, the room where the Priest prepared for mass, was renovated and converted into washrooms.  The convent also originally had a Music room and craft store.

Salmonier Country Manor now includes 7 guestrooms, a cozy parlour with fireplace, and a Multipurpose (Dining) room with seating for 45.
