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.

We loved staying at Kittiwake Cottage! Katherine welcomed us shortly after we arrived and informed us there was fresh-caught cod in the freezer. (It was delicious!) Besides the incredible view, the cottage is exquisitely decorated, thoughtfully appointed and so cozy. We enjoyed walking the boardwalk out to the lighthouse and trekking out to Bradley’s Cove, picking handfuls of blueberries along the way! Katherine gave us some great tips on things to see, and we loved driving along the coast and exploring the villages along the way. We’re already planning on going back, we fell in love with NL and Kittiwake Cottage!
Cannot wait to go back
The beautiful cottage is relaxing with unbelievable views of Western Bay. Will definitely be returning, and have already recommended this place. Thanks Kitty for such a memorable stay.
Wonderful stay at beautiful cottage
A beautifully appointed and decorated cottage, everything you could possibly require for a relaxing stay is provided. Kitty was fabulous in providing area interests and suggested great places to visit. Lots of walking and hiking available right outside the door. We spent 10 days here and absolutely would recommend a stay at Kittiwake.
