Where to Stay?


Time to get your room booked for Newfstock 2016 – the huge Newf Friends Gathering in Bancroft! We hope to see you and your Newf there!

The main event will be held on Saturday, September 17, 2016 in Millennium Park in downtown Bancroft, ON. For those that are arriving ahead of then, or staying later, we will be planning a variety of activities for the Friday and Sunday – like group swim date, Friday night social, guided nature hikes on Sunday, and whatever else our planners dream up! The big event on Saturday will run all day with vendors, activities for the whole family, live music, and our rescue parade to raise funds for the Newf Friends Newfoundland Dog Rescue! It’s sure to be a great day!

We have rooms reserved for NewfStock attendees at a discounted rate, at the Sword Motor Inn (Best Western) located directly next door to the main event location. These rooms are ready to be booked now -- first come, first served.

When you call to make your reservations quote the date, and that you are booking under "Newf Friends" to get our group discount.

Yes, on their site it says pets max 20 lbs! They are aware that Newfs weigh a tad more than that.

Those that are planning on making this a longer vacation, you may find renting a cottage to be a great option

Cottage Rentals
There are pet friendly cottages on this site www.cottagerentals247.com and some of the lakes are very close to town. We called them and have been assured that there is flexibility on arrival/departure dates because we are into September. You could arrive on a Thursday or Friday instead of a Saturday as listed on their site. These cottages book up fast and there are only a handful of pet friendly ones within 20 mins of town, so if this of interest to you, we suggest booking immediately. Be careful of the lake though, some are very far away! (Bay Lake, L’Amable Lake, Lucerne, Albion, parts of (south end) Baptiste are all close to town.) You can call them during regular business hours, 6 days a week if you have questions.

There is a unique Bed & Breakfast, which offers a dog friendly, privacy Guest Suite (a 425 sq ft.. one bedroom apartment). There is a queen bed in the bedroom, a queen size pull out sofa bed in the sitting room, a fully equipped kitchenette and 3 piece bath - electric fireplace, flat screen TV/DVD player and WiFi capability - the Guest Suite has it own private entrance. They provide a homemade continental breakfast each morning. Located 5 minutes form Millennium Park. Little Island Guest Suite.
