Experience Peace And Tranquility At Charming Cottage In Small Fishing Community.

Family-friendly cottage in New Bonaventure
This home was created by  my parents, she a keen gardener from England, he an educator and businessman who was raised in the community. They  retired here and created a  unique environment amid the rugged setting of an authentic fishing village.  The home is surrounded by hand-planted trees and gardens, and it offers fabulous views of Old  Bonaventure harbour and beautiful  Trinity Bay.     At the rear of the house a small waterfall flows into a stream which runs right under the  house and through the front lawn, providing a most relaxing soundscape for restful  nights of sleep and memorable afternoon naps.     The two double bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, accommodate four adults.  There is a large, well-equipped kitchen with double ovens, a five-ring stove top and a dishwasher, along with every imaginable utensil. There is a breakfast area positioned
beneath a skylight, and a more formal dining table overlooking the harbour. The comfortable lounge area is especially cosy with plenty of seating. It also features an inviting 
Vermont Castings wood-burning stove with a supply of firewood. Wi-fi internet access 
reaches all parts of the house and property. For entertainment,  there is a flat­screen TV with Bell satellite service. DVD and CD players are also provided, along with a Bluetooth speaker for iPhones, etc.  A landline phone is provided, with  Canada/US­ wide unlimited long distance calling. This helps offset the fact that, like most rural Newfoundland communities, Old Bonaventure is not serviced by any cell phone service provider.  
The secluded garden features a pond and a wide variety of plants that provide  spectacular colour throughout the spring/summer/fall seasons. The harbour­facing side of the house has a deck (with a gas BBQ). On warm days,  this is a perfect spot to enjoy sunsets, watch fishing boats come and go, and to see  magnificent eagles soar overhead from their nearby nests. There is a glass­roofed  conservatory which is perfect for enjoying those cooler days and for star­gazing at  night. For the musically inclined, there is also a superb piano. For readers, there is a  huge selection of books that cover every interest. Finally, there is an ample collection of  board games and playing cards.    This inviting home is the ideal retreat for a restful and restorative holiday. And when  you are rested, numerous nearby attractions await to connect you with the beauty and  fascinating history of this special part of Newfoundland. For instance, the film site of the acclaimed “Random Passage” series is just a five ­minute drive. (Just one of four films  shot in this area in recent years.) Hiking trails take you to the resettled outports of  Kerley’s Harbour and British Harbour. The Skerwink Trail, an essential experience for  hikers with spectacular views, is just 30 minutes away. Boat excursions for  whale­watching and for glimpsing historic and enigmatic resettled outports depart daily  from New Bonaventure and Trinity. If that is not enough history to satisfy, the 
500 year ­old town of Trinity is only 25 minutes away. 
Newfoundland is famous for it's music and storytelling and there are many local concerts and festivals. Please contact us if you would like information on any events that may be happening during your visit.
The options are endless...and the  comments of previous visitors speak for themselves! This is a holiday experience that  you will want to share with others.

5/5 Excellent

A little sanctuary
We just had the greatest time in this wonderful house! Our two kids, and our family dog spent a long weekend curled up by the woodstove. The beds were extremely comfortable, and the kitchen was one of the best we’ve ever seen in a local rental! Dawne was so lovely upon meeting her, and readily available if we needed anything. We really enjoyed ourselves, and would LOVE to stay here again!

5/5 Excellent

A great escape!
Stayed for a relaxing weekend out of town and it was exactly what we needed! Couldn't have asked for better

5/5 Excellent

One of our favourites
This is the rare rental property that we come back to time after time - it's just fantastic and feels like home to come back to. Tons of space, lots of light, a great kitchen, and a burbling brook, what more could you ask for?

5/5 Excellent

Idyllic. Small beautiful harbour. We had fab weather but the house with great open space fantastic bedding and woodstove with a very fitted kitchen makes for a great escape in any weather.

Our dreamy girls trip to Old Bonaventure
My best friend and I stayed here because we wanted to be close to hiking the Skerwink Trail, visiting the puffins in Elliston, and touring Bonavista and Trinity. We fell in love with Dawne's home! It was so cozy and had absolutely everything we needed. My friend is a big reader and was amazed by the impressive and thouhtful book collection, we were both obsessed with the kitchen, and we spent every evening watching the sun set over Old Bonaventure harbour while drinking wine by the fire and listening to Taylor Swift. We loved it here so much we booked an extra night! We will be back!!
