Aside from sitting on your private deck and watching the whales play in the ocean (10,000 Humpbacks migrate through the area each year!) and the icebergs idle by (in season of course)... there is plenty to do in Petty Harbour itself!

Petty Harbour has been an active fishing village since the 1500s. Feel the quaintness of the village for yourself... just take the short stroll down to the harbour and be gob-smacked by the stunning vista.

For non-licensed fishers, the Newfoundland and Labrador Recreational Food Fishery happens twice a year during summer and fall. The recreational fishery is open to both residents and non-residents and there is no license requirement. If not partaking yourself, you can still watch as folks take to the waters in small boats and then come back to the wharf to clean their catch in the same way it's been done for hundred of years. Either way, it's sure to whet your appetite!

Speaking of which - Chafe's Landing, the local seafood restaurant, is waiting to serve you the same fresh-caught fish at lunch - and again at supper, if you wish - it's that good! They have just completed a lovely reno and now have a small "pub"and deck! There is something for everyone on Chafe's menu!

We also have a new coffee shop called The Watershed - located right on the wharf. Enjoy artisan coffee, sandwiches and pastries in this quaint waterside cafe!

Learn the local history at the Petty Harbour Heritage Museum, learn about Newfoundland aquatic life at the Petty Harbour Mini Aquarium, stop into the Information Centre, get a bit of exercise while enjoying the quiet splendor of the East Coast Trail or for the more adventurous...try Zip Lining (North Atlantic Zip Lining) through the hills and get a bird's eye view of the Atlantic Ocean. Fishing For Success is a Not for Profit Organization that can take you out beyond the breakwater to jig for your own cod, bring it back in clean it and even do a lovely piece of art with it! Fantastic fun for the whole family!

Canoers, kayakers and jet ski enthusiasts bring their crafts to the launches at the wharf and enjoy the Petty Harbour area also!

We are located on the East Coast Trail where there is plenty of hiking for all levels.

Or maybe you just want to while away the hours poking through craft shops, artist studios or picking wild blueberries in the hills outside your suite.

Petty Harbour also has its popular Arts & Heritage Festival in August.

We also have a brand new convenience store which will open at the beginning of the season. If you need a little more in the way of groceries, take the 5 minute drive to Bidgoods where you can pick up everything you need including a fabulous selection of Newfoundland specialty food items, Newfoundland crafts and more of the freshest of fish and seafood - including lobster!

For those needing a Pharmacy there is also a Shoppers Drug Mart in the Bidgoods Plaza.

Ventures Afar

Guests of Shore Lark by the Sea are able to experience an idyllic lifestyle in Petty Harbour yet can switch gears very quickly with a 15 minute drive into St. John's, one of the oldest most vibrant cities in North America, where they can hit the pubs, theatres, art galleries, museums, shopping, sports events and fine dining restaurants.

Petty Harbour is also located minutes from one of the biggest attractions to the province, Cape Spear, the most easterly point in North America, and is a launching point for many day trips including the Irish Loop, whale and bird watching boat tours, sea kayaking and much more.

If you head down to Ferryland you can check out the Colony of Avalon Archaeological Dig and have a lovely catered picnic lunch right on the cliffs at the Ferryland Lighthouse.

Bird lovers must take the trip to Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve! Witness one of the most accessible places in the world to see nesting seabirds including kittiwakes, cormorants, puffins and more than 24,000 gannets.

The Avalon Wilderness Area is home to the most southerly herd of Woodland caribou.

There are several golf courses nearby, including a championship public course with panoramic views of St. John's and the surrounding coastline.

Brook trout and Atlantic salmon are also abundant in the ponds and rivers of the region.

Other outdoor activities: Sea kayaking, boating, mountain biking, horseback riding, swimming and more are all available.

Newfoundland has so many incredible things to do and see...and we could go on forever... so instead we'll just give you a link to one of the best sites to get all the information you need at shorelarkbythesea.com

Notes:
Our renters are FANTASTIC!!! They leave our units in tidy condition - but no one would really want to arrive to a rental cleaned by the last guests, right?! Therefore, to ensure the highest level of spic & span clean for the next arriving guests we hire a professional cleaner to clean each unit top to bottom between guests. For our Nests there is a $45 departure cleaning fee for stays of 6 days and less, and a $65 fee for a stay 7 days or longer. Our Guest House is a 3 night minimum rental with $100 departure Housekeeping Fee. We are constantly complimented on just how clean and comfortable our rentals are. We take great pride in this and we know you will appreciate it also!
