We had the pleasure of staying at the Inn in September. We were the only travelers staying here for the evening so had access to the whole property. A bonus was laundry facilities and a local fisherman provided us with delicious cod, which we were able to prepare ourselves at the Inn. The views from the cliffs are magnificent and... More

We stayed in Rose Blanche for 4 days and almost missed going to this lighthouse. A very nice trail gets you near or right up to this magnificent lighthouse. If you enjoy water, and rocks, and like photography. do not miss this.

This is a lighthouse built of rock with the lighthouse keepers house as part of it. Most lighthouses in the area seem to be separate from the keepers house, so this one is special. You can go inside and get an idea of what life was like in these outposts. It is rough road to get there, but worth the... More

We decided to spend a night at the Rose Blanche LIghthouse B & B before catching the morning ferry from Port aux Basques. It is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world - with the lighthouse high on a rock on the edge of the ocean. The community has created wonderful walking trails throughout the area. Both... More

The windswept beauty of lighthouses attracts us every time, and this one did not disappoint. Far from the customary white and red beacons that are so common, this historical lighthouse has been completely restored to the beautiful granite structure that it originally was. Even the interior has been recreated to showcase the rooms and household items that 19th century lighthouse... More

I travelled to visit the Rose Blanche lighthouse from Port Aux Basques and it took about 45 minutes along a very winding, but scenic road. The lighthouse is located up on the rocks a short walk from the parking lot. To get to it you have to walk one of two paths. Both paths provide excellent views and opportunity to... More

While in bad weather at Cheeseman Park decided to try Rose Blanche and visit the restored lighthouse. It was well worth the trip, the lighthouse was fantastic and the craft shop and staff very nice. Also found on the property was a fishermans' stage with some artifacts, really nice. Had a great visit. Also walked to a waterfall just outside... More

We were there June 15th. It is about a 1/2 km walk to the lighthouse on a gravel path. You need good walking shoes to get there. The walk is very scenic and wind gusts from the ocean are continuous. The rooms inside are set up to give you a good idea of how the lighthouse keepers lived. Climbing the... More

This lighthouse is a walk back in time! It's an out of the way place to get to but the scenery is pleasant along the way from Port Aux Basque, although the road is often in very bad shape with potholes so drive slowly and just enjoy the scenery. The lighthouse is nicely maintained and there's a small entrance fee... More

We had this place to ourselves in late September. Rocky coastline with old historic lighthouse. The most beautiful scenery you can imagine.
