Brigus South house description

Perched just above the tiny outport fishing village of Brigus South, Anchor Rock Lookout is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy life. Sit on the wrap-around deck or the upstairs balcony and watch the tide go in and out in Brigus Cove, the birds flying near Brigus Head, or perhaps spot a whale or iceberg floating by out in the ocean. Just a few steps away are blueberries for the picking (in season.)

Newly built and opened in June 2010, Anchor Rock Lookout is furnished with all the modern conveniences of life, but also features a touch of yesteryear with rich hardwood floors and antiques throughout. The 3 main bedroom suites each feature a queen bed and an attached bathroom. The master bath has a clawfoot tub,a large shower,and ocean views, while the 2 upstairs bathrooms feature huge showers and one has a waterfall view. Fluffy sheepskin rugs from New Zealand and flat screen TVs with DVD players adorn each bedroom suite. Also upstairs are 2 smaller rooms with a twin bed in each, suitable for children or single adults. In between the upstairs bedroom suites you will find a library with a balcony overlooking the ocean and a sitting room with a sunset view, so that you can get almost continuous sun during the day. Two bedrooms look out over a nearby waterfall.

You will love the open plan feeling downstairs, with large picture windows everywhere, a Great Room with a large flat screen satellite HD television, DVD player, stereo system with I-Pod dock, and a selection of DVDs and CDS for your use. The Great Room is open to the kitchen and dining room and provides for easy entertaining. The kitchen is has a pantry which is fully stocked with general cooking provisions as well as fixings for your first breakfast. A clothes washer and dryer are located in the mudroom, and laundry soap and other necessities are provided.

Anchor Rock Lookout is only 45 minutes drive south of the capital, St. John's, on the Irish Loop of Newfoundland. The house is just a short walk to the East Coast Trail and you can hike to La Manche Provincial Park to the north or Admiral's Cove and Cape Broyle to the south. Cape Broyle also features world class sea kayaking. The historic town of Ferryland is only a short drive away, where you will find the Avalon Colony archaeological dig, the world famous Lighthouse Picnics, and a dinner theatre.

Come visit our enchanting corner of the world. You will be glad you did.

                                    We have enjoyed a fantastic respite from the chaos of Hong Kong! For us, and after many visits to Canada, have felt that Newfoundland is very special indeed and its friendliness is personified by Darlene and Randy who have made us feel very welcome. Their willingness to help and their proximity contributed greatly to our time here. The house is especially nice and the waterfall is a master stroke.

                                    A beautiful house in a breathtaking setting. We had a great stay. Best thing: sitting outside on the porch enjoying the view.

                                    We just spent 3 nights and 3 days in a neat cottage up on a hill that overlooked the wide, wide unfathomable ocean. One day we loved going to the nearby waterfall, where water fell and moss grew all around. Ok, we actually went into the waterfall. We walked down the hill to the shore, we picked blueberries, we ate, we slept, we laughed. Nobody cried. Well maybe the kids out of fussiness but not sadness. This is a very good place, this cottage we visited.

                                    Thank you for a magical week. We never tired of the view. We took lots of lovely day trips - to Salmonier Nature Reserve, to the beach in La Manche Provincial Park, to the Fluvarium in St. John's. The smallest of us (6, 3 and 2) spent lots of time feeding the ducks down in Brigus South and we discovered a lovely little playground for them in Cape Broyle. We did the hike from La Manche to Decker's Cove and saw seals there. We loved O'Brien's Whale Watching Boat trip (recommend the 9am trip, less crowded), though we saw plenty of whales from the deck of the house. We've all fallen in love with Newfoundland. Great fish, cod and scallops from Cape Broyle and the fisheries. We ate well looking out over the Atlantic. Thank you for a wonderful family week in your wonderful cottage/home.

                                    Aside from the beauty of this slice of heaven in Canada, the people of Newfoundland (especially Randy, Darlene and Emma) are what makes Brigus South so incredibly special. Although living in Ontario, coming here was like returning home. Husband just says, "Wow!" We are leaving in the morning, yet will be counting down the days until we return.

                                    Great place to de-stress and unwind. Lovely views, the water is soothing. House is fabulous. Have rented many vacation homes in the past and this is the best provisioned house we have ever had. Everything is here that you need for your vacation. It was lovely to meet Randy, Darlene and Emma. They were very accomodating despite being very busy. I feel like I have 3 new friends in Newfoundland. Today the sun is shining and sparkles all over the water. I hate to leave but look forward to a return visit to Anchor Rock.

                                    This trip was our first trip to Newfoundland and we could not have picked a more beautiful place to stay. The view was outstanding, the house was immaculately clean and well kept, and Randy, Darlene and Emma were so friendly and welcoming. When we return to Newfoundland we would 100% want to stay at Anchor Rock again, as well as reconnect with the family. Thank you for making our experience so memorable!

                                    The property was more then what we expected. There were 3 couples who shared this home and it was more then big enough. The owners and the people who looked after this property were very helpful with directions and activities in the area. I would definitely recommend this property.

                                    A very well appointed, well equipped, clean and comfortable home-away-from-home for the six of us - and the view from the back deck as well as the interior of the home is exactly as shown in the listing! This was a first time to the Island for all of us and the spectacular scenery, excellent accommodation, and friendly and helpful neighbours and caretakers (Darlene and Randy) made it a trip to remember. The proximity of the property to the East Coast Trail was also a big plus, as we hiked about 20 kilometres in total (north and south) and were rewarded with the sight of humpback whales from the headlands, as well as seals in the coves. We were close enough for day trips to St. John's and Petty Harbour - Cape Spear, while Ferryland and Bay Bulls (for Gatheralls Whale and Puffin tours) were both an easy afternoon drive. This property was suggested by friends who stayed there last year and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone with a car who's looking for a home base from which to tour the Avalon. We would certainly recommend the Sunday evening catered dinner at Cape Spear Lighthouse and also the Riverview Restaurant in Cape Broyle.

                                    Recommended for: Families with teenagers, adventure seekers, sightseeing, families with young children, age 55+.

                                    Seven days of great views. Great weather - got to experience it all. Wonderful part of the island and will return. Great home and lots of sites within easy driving distance. Randy and Darlene great local flavor and add to the trip. Thanks for a great stay.
