About the property

Three Bedroom Fishing Village Saltbox

This charming little traditional Newfoundland Saltbox home was built around 1850 and is one of the oldest homes in the region. It has been lovingly restored and now offers all the modern conveniences you will need to make your vacation stay both comfortable and memorable.

It was featured on the cover and a seven page article in the 'HOME & CABIN' magazine. You can see this article and view the fantastic slideshow if you visit and type 'Baccalieu cottage' in the search area.

It sits proudly in a meadow in the fishing village of Ochre Pit Cove along the scenic Baccalieu Trail in Conception Bay North, approx. 140 km. from the capital city of St. John's.

This comfortable home is a cozy place to unwind after a long day of hiking and sightseeing. Take a two minute walk to the fishermens wharf and see what todays catch will bring. There is also a whale watching area close to the wharf where you can see the whales breach as they feed on the schools of caplin in the bay.

The cottage has three bedrooms, two on the second floor, and one on the first floor. The master has a queen bed, wing back chair, armchair and desk with chair. The second has a 3/4 (48') bed which can sleep an adult or two children. The third bedroom is located on the first floor has a single bed and would be suitable for a person with limited mobility. Also on the first floor are the fully equipped kitchen, breakfast nook, dining room which seats six and a comfortable living room with an electric fireplace , wing back chairs and a loveseat. There is also a desk and chair if you need to set up your computer. There is a full bathroom with shower on the first floor and half bath with sink and toilet on the second floor.

The cottage has been furnished throughout with country antiques and local art as well as unusual quirky re-purposed decorator items. There is a large deck which wraps around the back and side to sit back and enjoy the ocean breezes. Baccalieu (codfish in Portuguese) Cottage will certainly offer you something more than the usual vacation cottage.

The Baccalieu Trail offers lots to do, you can hike, sightsee, or take a day trip to nearby Trinity Bay where you will discover charming little towns with names like 'Hearts Content, 'Hearts Desire, and 'Hearts Delight'. Photographic opportunities are everywhere. Northern Bay Sands Park is just a few minutes away where you can enjoy a large sandy beach and freshwater swimming hole. If you are brave enough, you can take a dip in the cold Atlantic ocean. Take a day trip to visit the historic towns of Cupids and Brigus where you can take in a live show or sample the tasty goodies offered at the annual Blueberry Festival.

For your entertainment when you just want to sit at home we have wireless internet, cable tv. telephone, stereo, reading material and family board games.

Please note that this region has some of the most beautiful scenery you will find anywhere but it also has a rugged coastline with cliffs. When you are exploring and enjoying the area please use caution and supervise any children in your care.
