set high on the mountainside with excellent views of the valley, the 18-hole
championship golf course and Deer Lake.

bedrooms—perfect for families traveling together. The chalets have fireplaces,
a full kitchen, living and dining room areas and bathrooms adjoining each
bedroom. Some include an outdoor Jacuzzi hot tub, which can be used in all

More than 400 one-acre plots have been sold and at press
time,159 chalets had been completed. Twelve apartments have been sold; 24 one-
and two- bedroom apartments will eventually be available. All will have a
decked area.

Owners have the option of putting their chalets or
apartments in the rental pool. Commission is 10-15 percent.

Sports for Active Travelers

Since eastern Canada is still largely
undeveloped, this is an excellent region for adventure and sports enthusiasts.

The big draw for the resort is the many activities available
year round including golf, skiing, snowmobiling, canoeing, angling, hiking, swimming,
sailing, boating, whale watching and kayaking. Other favorites include
helicopter rides over the region, dog sledding, snowmobiling and spa
treatments. As clients are out and about in the wildnerness, it's not uncommon
for them to see moose and other wildlife. Activities can be booked with the

The activities center and kids club, near the lake in the
beach house, provides professional instruction in water sports such as kayaking
and sailing.

Dog sledding is ideal for families, couples and people of
all ages, as it requires little skill. For bookings, contact My Newfoundland Adventures.
The company offers a variety of other activities such as wildlife tracking,
heli-skiing, caving, rappelling, ice fishing, ice climbing and snowshoeing.

For golf enthusiast clients, note that golf season in Newfoundland typically
runs from late May until the end of October. Humber Valley Resort's 18-hole
par-72 championship River Course affords dramatic views of the valley,
including Deer Lake
and the Humber River. A full practice area, including a
driving range with grass teeing areas and a large putting green will be opening
in late 2007.

Unwinding at the Spa

The Humber Valley Spa is a nice way to unwind after an
active day spent. Tucked in a chalet, the two-level spa is as cozy as a ski
lodge. Built with stone and warm wood, the spa offers amazing views of the
surrounding woodlands and an adjacent lake. A warm fire, cozy blankets and the
softest bathrobes we've ever experienced at a spa were perfect accessories for
the winter. There are a variety of treatments, including facials, massages and
scrubs. We suggest booking the après ski package (which includes a 60-minute
facial, 90-minute massage, lunch, a sweet treat and a glass of champagne
post-treatment). Request therapist Catherine.

Dining options include Eagle's Perch Restaurant, which
boasts excellent views from the dining room's bay windows and a fantastic
Sunday brunch smorgasbord. Sally's Pub is great for sandwiches, breakfasts and
kid-friendly meals.
