Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The Battery Bluff Cottage B is a clean , cozy and comfortable cottage. It also has a fabulous balcony to watch the boats come and go from the harbour.

The location is great to walk through the Battery and onto the trail around to Signal Hill or onto Quidi Vidi. Plus it is an easy walk to downtown and the shops, bars and restaurants. Stop at the Battery Cafe. A few minutes from the cottage and a perfect place for coffee and a treat.

We loved our stay here and hope to return again soon.

Clean, Quiet, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely place to stay with great amenities for the traveler. We enjoyed watching the activities in the harbour and being walkable to downtown was a real bonus. We also were able to hike up to Signal Hill right from the cottage. I would recommend this place to anyone who would like to have the feeling of being home away from home.

Fantastic experience.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Battery Bluff Cottage (B) was a highlight of our trip to Newfoundland. The unit was clean and well appointed with more modern updates and conveniences that we had expected. But it is the location that makes it stand out. Having the view of the harbour, and a short walk to both Signal Hill and downtown made our stay far more enjoyable than if we had been only a few short blocks away. Whether it was enjoying the Harbourside Walk Trail, or picking fresh blueberries for pancakes, or watching boats in the Harbour - the experience was so much better because of being in the Battery.

Sometimes the location makes the experience so much more enjoyable, and this was definitely the case at Battery Bluff.

Wonderful harbour view from this exceptional cottage

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as promised. Clean, very well appointed with comfortable beds and cosy bedding. Fantastic unobstructed view of the harbour. Quiet area in the evenings. Thank you very much for sharing this lovely rental with us. I hope to return. One of our party was a 91 year old - easy access into the unit and within the unit. We toured the area- thanks for the maps and tourist guide books. We ordered from the grocery/catering spot - Belbin's, and were thrilled with the service and delicious food. I will recommend this rental to others.

Views!!

  • 5 of 5

A well situated cottage with great views of the busy harbor. We really enjoyed watching the boats come and go. Cottage was nicely furnished and well equipped. Comfortable beds. Kitchen has everything. We enjoyed our stay. Problem with the internet was fixed on our last day, wish that could have been done sooner, but cable worked well.

About Rochelle Spracklin

I am a born and bred Newfoundlander. I was born on the west coast, lived in Labrador for many years and even longer in St. John's. I have always dreamed of owning a property on the Battery....one of the truly spectacular, unique areas in the world. This cottage will allow me to share this special place with old and new friends. So if you want to visit home, take that dream trip, explore an amazing place, Battery Bluff Cottage is for you.

Rochelle Spracklin purchased this cottage in 2015
