One Bedroom Right at the Oceans Edge
About Catherine Whalen
The owner is a retired medical professional who has a family vacation home in the area and has been spending weekends and summers here for 15 years and found that when you are here your body and soul are in the same place and the peace and tranquility will rejuvenate your senses. When this little cottage became available she thought she would share this great experience with other people.
Why Catherine Whalen chose Western Bay
This little cottage allows visitors to enjoy all that is Newfoundland. The views are breathtaking and one visitor to the whale watching dock amusingly said that the whales were closer than at SeaWorld.
What makes this Cottage unique
Even when the weather is not ideal, and you are inside, the views of the ocean and its ever changing seas will keep you entertained.

A perfect getaway
We thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful, wild and beautifully appointed cottage. We were grateful for their thoughtful, creative, and cheery attention to detail and very generously stocked kitchen. the warmth and charm of this place warmed our hearts as the arctic air chilled our happy faces while we chased magnificent icebergs. Would happily return. Kitty and Tom were so welcoming, gracious and generous. While we come from away, we’d be so happy to return again.

Peter & Kim....thank-you so much for the kind review of your stay at Kittiwake Cottage. We had several seasons each day during your stay, even a bit of snow but you brave souls made the best of it. I'm happy that a huge iceberg parked itself in the bay for your stay. You will always be most welcome at Kittiwake any time you want to come back to the rock to brave the elements. :)) Kitty & Tom
What a gem!
Kitty, the cottage, the location and the quiet were perfect.
In these three days, I was graced by storms and rainbows. It was something out of a romantic novel :)
Mari....I'm so happy you found the peace and quiet you came seeking to find in Newfoundland. The cottage really is a special place where your body and soul are in the same place. I hope you enjoy the rest of your journey in our special province and you are always very welcome at Kittiwake Cottage. Kitty

Beautiful cottage and stunning property
I was at Kittiwake for 4 days and loved every minute! The cottage is beautifully decorated and the windows look out onto the ocean - something I can ever tire of. Wonderful hiking behind the house and up the boardwalk to the light. Also, numerous hiking trails in the area, each special in its own way. I definitely recommend Kittiwake for anybody who loves peace and quiet and beauty. I cannot forget the gifts waiting me - wine, Cod, and dog treats! Thank you so much for a wonderful place and experience!
Hi Linda & Kimba.....thank-you so much for the lovely review. I am so happy that you chose our little cottage to spend part of your first vacation in Newfoundland. If you and Kimba ever find yourselves back on the Rock, you will always be welcome at Kittiwake. Enjoy the rest of your vacation. Kitty
Spectacular views and complete relaxation
Cottage was beautifully decorated, no detail overlooked and spotlessly clean. Fresh flowers and fresh cod and wine for a lovely meal supplied. Kitty met with us on arrival to answer any questions. Beautiful beaches a few minutes drive away. We watched whales right in front of the deck the first day. We have already rebooked for next year.
Hi Maeve & Randy.....thank-you for taking the time to review your stay at Kittiwake Cottage. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and discovered our little piece of paradise.
