Blazing Horizon Cottages
Reviewed July 4, 2009

Althought I didn't stay at the Blazing Horizon Cottages, we most certainly frequented the restaurant most every night for dinner. One of the waitresses, Una, did a wonderful job of teaching us about the local culture; Barb the owner showed my 14 yr old teen the craft of folding paper napkins (staff fold 30,000 yearly!) and all of the staff were very gracious when I thought Shag Rock (as viewed directly from the restaurant window) was a black iceberg!
I've never seen such a colourful shrimp cocktail, the seafood dinner was superb and each time we went, my teen ate the seafood chowder and fried chocolate brownie or the apple caramel dessert.
Their little gift shop offered some really nice local crafts, too, which I found waned on the rest of the peninsula.

Blazing Horizon Cottages in Whiteway on the Avalon was the highlight of our trip. Went to NFLD with mother and girlfriends to site-see and stayed at the Kyra Cottage in Blazing Horizon cottages. Cottage was beautiful, tastefully decorated, extremely clean and very homey. Barb and Cecil, along with their daughters Colleen and Renne made us feel like extended family and went out of their way to help us plan an itinerary, sit around the campfire with us, share their history and provide the best NFLD food we've had in their restaurant, Brown's. Already planning to go back next summer with more family and friends. Cottages provide a great view of Shag Rock and more are being built already, right down to the ocean. You will not be disappointed here.

Just spent a week travelling around the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland. We stumbled upon Blazing Horizon Cottages while looking for accomadations and what a find. Having just opened their cottages in 2006, Barb & Cecil Brown spared no expense to make you feel at home. These lovely cottages are fully furnished, featuring leather couches, feather beds, whirlpool bath, separate shower, and full kitchens. The views of the ocean were spectacular.
The Browns also operate an award winning restaurant on-site, so if we didn't feel like cooking, a great meal was only steps away.
