Old Bonaventure House offers 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....Old Bonaventure House offers a unique environment amid the rugged setting of an authentic fishing village.

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 harbour-­facing 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. More

Beautifully renovated older two bedroom, two bath, open concept, directly overlooking a small fishing harbour. Privacy and a peaceful garden to view the "going ons"at the wharf as the small fishing boats pursue their livelihood.

Date of stay: July 2020
