Dreamcatcher Lodge is a Hotel/Motel located in the beautiful and historic community of Stephenville, Newfoundland & Labrador. With the neighbouring Mi’kmaq and Acadian communities and the American heritage of Stephenville itself, Dreamcatcher Lodge is in the heart of the culturally rich Southwest Coast of Newfoundland & Labrador.
Originally “White’s Hotel”, the main Lodge was built in the 1950’s by Mi’kmaq entrepreneur Stan White. Mr. White cut an hauled, from the forest, every log used to construct White’s Hotel/Dreamcatcher Lodge. Starting as a boarding style lodge with 13 bedrooms and three bathrooms, the Lodge was remodelled in 1973 to a standard hotel by Stan’s son, Conrad and Debra Myles White.
The establishment was purchased by another mi’kmaq entrepreneur, Francis Bennett and Dr. Wayne Goudie, in 2003.
After another extensive renovation, the Dreamcatcher Lodge opened for business on Valentine’s Day, 2004.
The Newfoundland & Labrador culture is inclusive and welcoming, and the staff at Dreamcatcher Lodge embodies that feeling completely. And while all 13 employees are not related, there is a sense of family that is felt by all guests.
