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 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

Why Rochelle Spracklin chose Downtown

Outport living in the City. Views, walking trails, historic sites, unique city life and a beautiful home....what more could you wish for?

What makes this cottage unique

St. John's, our province's capital, is the perfect combination of big-city luxury and small-town charm. As the oldest and most easterly city in North America, this is where heritage lives. Melded with culture, history, and personality, St. John's has survived two World Wars, five centuries, countless hardships and triumphs. It's become a rare, old city full of character, experience and charisma, with a contemporary, sophisticated edge.

Wander down the narrow, criss-crossing streets carved by horse and carriage over 100 years ago. Pass the colourful jellybean row houses wedged together in every space lining the sides of steep hills and hidden alleyways. Once you've meandered down to the working harbour of the waterfront, look towards the Narrows and imagine a time when the waters were brimming full with fishing schooners.

Visit Quidi Vidi, our charming village-within-a-city, which still embodies the spirit of an old fishing outport. Then, hike up nearby Signal Hill through the famous Battery, where tiny wooden homes still cling valiantly to cliffsides ravaged by ocean waves. The unmistakable, iconic Cabot Tower guards the top of Signal Hill, where military men guarded our shores throughout the 1700s and 1800s. Here, Marconi famously received his first transmission across the Atlantic in 1901. Look out over the cliffs and watch the city's harbour and captivating skyline spread out before you. Perched on the top of the horizon is The Rooms, home to our provincial museum, art gallery and archives, standing next to the striking twin clock towers of the Basilica of St. John the Baptist.

As you explore the history of this place, shop at the many fine boutiques, shops, cafés, restaurants, pubs, and art galleries lining our streets. In the evening, sit back, relax, and enjoy live music or local theatre where actors will whisk you away to another place and time.

Clean and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

A very special house in a unique location. My friends and I loved our vacation in St. John’s. A big part of that was staying at this rental property. We could walk to every place we wanted to go downtown, and hike around signal hill. We always looked forward to returning to the Battery Bluff Cottage and the special room on the third floor that has a spectacular view of St. John’s Harbour and the Narrows!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage perched on the Battery which makes it an ideal jumping off place for incredible walks to North Cape and Signal Hill as well as an easy stroll into the downtown. Like so many others before us, we spent hours up on the top floor or out on the open deck, watching the boat traffic in the harbour and gulls riding the thermals. The cottage itself is spacious, thoughtfully equipped and full of a comfortable blend of old charm and modern comfort. Our family of 8 were in St. John's celebrating my parents' 60th wedding anniversary and we had a fantastic time largely because of this special cottage which happily held us all with room to spare. We hope to come again one day.

First Trip to St John's

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect to end our family vacation. I love to cook on vacation and the kitchen had everything I needed to do just that. The different levels in the home provided privacy when needed. The view from the third level was beautiful. You could see the city of St. John's, the harbour and the narrows into the harbour. My husband and I hiked the coastline of Signal Hill - amazing! Downtown was within walking distance. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful home.

A beautiful house in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful with lots of space. Having different levels allowed our family to spread out. The favourite spot was the deck on the third level and the adjoining sunroom. Rochelle has thought of everything and the house is well set up. The view is terrific, and being on the Signal Hill walk was the a perfect place to be, though still a very easy walk downtown. We would book it again in a second, and hope to come back some day. Thank you for everything.
