Built in the late 1800's and given as a dowry from the Pittman family to Mr. Albert Eriksen, a Norwegian whaling Engineer, upon marriage to their daughter, Frances, the Eriksen Premises operated for almost a century as a general store. The Eriksens also called the Premises home and operated a tearoom in the current dining room for a number of years. In 1950's, the Batson family purchased the property and continued operation of the general store until the late 1970's. After that time, the building lay in disrepair until purchased by Christine Whelan in the early 1990's and was restored to house a country inn.
Today, the Eriksen Premises has 7 tastefully appointed guest rooms, a casual fine dining restaurant and a gift store featuring Newfoundland produced gifts, preserves, crafts, jewelry, artwork & literature.
