About Yvonne & Boyd Fleming
My husband and I built this home ourselves as a summer cottage with our children who at the time were very young and they loved to help. Our cottage has a lot of beautiful memories for us. I wanted to be close to my family so my parents would have the opportunity to see my children grow and for them to know what it's like to grow up in a small community. This land that the cottage sits on has been passed down from generation to generation and has been in my family since the late 1800's. We used this land when I was growing up for hay for our horses.
What makes this Cottage unique
The highlight of this cottage is the view as it's like no other. To be able to watch whales, puffins and other wildlife from the living room or private patio is certainly an added bonus.

Fabulous place to stay and relax or use as a base for exploring the Avalon Peninsula.
Well Equipped, Beautiful Cottage with Amazing View
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. We like to move in and really live where we travel, and the kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed. There is a lot to do in the area and we were able to see icebergs, thousands of Puffins and whales! On our last night there were Humpback Whales right in our cove and we were able to watch the show from the deck.
The cottage is very comfortable and was very clean. With two bedrooms it has plenty of space. Our hostess dropped by to see if all was well and we had a lovely chat about the area. We loved our time in Newfoundland and at this cottage and would definitely stay here again!
Beautiful Location - Best People to work with!
Linex Cottage is one of the best VRBOs we've stayed in. Communication with the owners was above and beyond. The house is clean, neat and has all the amenities you could want. Nice, quiet neighborhood - both near to the city but far enough away to feel the peace and quiet. Comfortable. The view was awesome. We would stay here again in a heart beat!
Million dollar view
Charming home in a quiet cove. The view was amazing. Bedrooms and bathroom we're very small, especially the bathroom. A great location for traveling the Irish Loop. The bakery down the road had delicious treats. The only let down was the wifi was not working, although the owners said it should be up by Friday (we left on Sunday). Never heard from owners why that did not happen. Everyone we encountered was very friendly.
It was very unfortunate that due to poor service from the internet provider, it took over three weeks to get the internet working. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Best vacation ever....beautiful view of the ocean....cottage was clean and had absolutely everything we needed. Thank you Yvonne and Boyd for sharing your place.
Home away from home
We enjoyed the cottage. The view was outstanding. It has everything you need and is very comfortable. The owner dropped by for a visit and that was great. Would come back!!
I'm so glad you both enjoyed your stay at the cottage. It was great to have the opportunity to meet you both Have a great summer!
Located just 40 kilometres south of St. John's on Route 10 in a picturesque community of Burnt Cove just minutes outside of Tors Cove. The area offers a scenic drive along the Irish Loop and is close to many Tour Boat Operations. The property fronts on part of the East Coast Trail. Hiking to abandoned community of LaManche where there is a suspension bridge. This village was destroyed by a tidal wave back in the 1960's and people were forced to re-settle. This hike takes about 1.5 hours (approximately 5 kilometres). Don't forget to take a short detour to Doctor's Cove. If you're looking for some traditional Newfoundland food the renowned Captain's Table in Mobile is your place. Try out their fish & chips or delicious fish cakes. Ocean View Bakery is just a short walk away where you can enjoy homemade fresh breads and an assortment of cookies. LaManche Provincial Park is only 15 minutes away and offers day use with a swimming area. Try taking the hike to LaManche Falls and go for a dip. Visit St. Michael's Catholic Church which is over a hundred years old and is only a five minute walk from the cottage. If it's gifts or souvenirs you're looking for be sure to go to Alderberry Blum which is located in Bay Bulls. If you like history, the place to go is Ferryland, Colony of the Avalon which is located about 25 minutes from the cottage where there is an archaelogical dig, interpretation centre, gift shop with tradional Newfoundland gifts and a display of the finds. While you're there take a short walk out to Ferryland Head Lighthouse and enjoy a picnic overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Also, in this area during the summer months they have a dinner theatre with local talent. Be sure to make reservations.
