Overview

About the property

Room for the whole family. Icebergs and whales in season.

Ochre House is a unique multi-purpose vacation and studio facility located in Conception Bay, Newfoundland. Built in 1938, this former United Church has been thoughtfully renovated to include all the modern amenities while respecting the beauty of the original architecture. With a stunning seventeen-foot ceiling, spacious studio and generous living area, our facility offers an exceptional getaway experience for work or play. An hour and 45 minutes from St. John’s and four minutes from Northern Bay Sands Park, it is a perfect place for your extended family to kick back and relax – over 2500 square feet will give everyone room to breathe.

Work

Ochre House provides an exceptional opportunity to work without interruption in a clean, spacious and quiet environment. The main studio area features 600 square feet (55 square metres) of new birch hardwood flooring with a 17 foot (5.2m) ceiling and no posts. For presentation there is capacity for a seated audience of 40-100 depending on performance requirements. An ideal venue for a residency, retreat or workshop - no other facility in the province offers this combination of performance space and accommodation under one roof.

Play

Stroll down to the beach and watch the fishing boats come and go at the busy wharf. See whales and icebergs in season off the breathtakingly rugged coast. Discover the endless web of hiking trails through woods and meadows. Build sandcastles at Northern Bay Sands Park. Take a day trip up the coast to see the historic stone walls of Grates Cove. In the evening, sit around the fire and listen to the loons in the distance. Love to entertain? Bring your instruments and enjoy the beautiful acoustics. Love to cook? The large kitchen is stocked with all you need to get you started – condiments, sugar & spice, oil & vinegar, pots and pans. There’s even a fondue set. All you need to bring is your favourite food.
