Ochre Pit Cove house description
Our lovely 2-bedroom cottage in Ochre Pit Cove is a cozy place to relax and enjoy life in a genuine Newfoundland fishing village. We are an hour and a half from the St. John’s Airport in Conception Bay North. This cabin is right on the Atlantic Ocean. It is a very comfortable bungalow decorated with original Newfoundland art and loaded with charm. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need to bake, cook and eat. All you need to bring are your groceries, which you can buy on your drive out in Carbonear.
The dining room seats 6, and has a deck off the back that faces the ocean so you can watch the whales spout or breach while you eat your breakfast. The living room on main floor has a comfortable couch and library chairs, and a beautiful view of the colourful salt box houses across the street. The main floor also has 2 bedrooms. The first bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has a queen bed, and both have new and luxurious mattresses and superior linens. The bathroom has a shower/tub.
The basement has a fully equipped laundry room for your convenience. There is also a family room with a fold-down couch (clik-clak) which is perfect for 2 children or an extra adult guest. The family room has digital TV and a DVD player. The house has an Apple iMAC computer with high speed wireless Internet and there is free, unlimited long distance within North America.
Ochre Pit Cove is a little fishing village along the North Eastern coast of the Avalon Peninsula, and more specifically along the Baccalieu Trail in Conception Bay North. Within the village you can walk a minute up the road to see the old weather-worn graveyard. If you walk two minutes down the road the other way, you will come to the wharf and fishing plant. Here you can watch the fishing boats come and go, meet the local fishermen, and watch as they have their catch hauled up. Another path will lead you to the beach where you can see the Ochre cliffs. The beach is a place to explore the tide pools, skip rocks, and in the evening you can bring down some firewood and have a little fire on the beach (bring a bucket to put out the fire when you are done please). The area is full of hiking and ATV (quad) or biking trails that you can explore. During late summer, you can walk outside your door, sit down with a pail, and pick blueberries.
If you want to swim, Northern Bay Sands park and beach is a three minute drive. This is privately owned, so you will need to pay for the day, as you would at a campground. It is worth it though, to swim in the waves and explore the beach.
It is well worth taking a drive around the multitude of outports around the bay.

We stayed at this home Saturday July 7, 2012. Nestled in beautiful Ochre Pit Cove this vacation home boasted a clean, roomy, beautiful home away from home. It offered two bedrooms and a den (with a fold out couch), a large back yard with a fire pit, a back deck with BBQ and lots of children's books, games, toys and movies. The view was exquisite and the cleanliness was immaculate and if you a looking to relax and get away from the business of the city this is definitely the place to go.

My stay at Ochre Pit Cove
My stay at Ochre Pit Cove
This past weekend I had a most pleasurable stay at Wharf Rd. in Ochre Pit Cove, NL. I could not believe how accomodating this vacation rental was. A beautiful guest house with superb amenities, super clean throughout, everything there at our disposal. The only thing we needed to bring was our food. A great weekend in every way, especially the ocean view, and sleeping with the windows open, listening to the ocean roll, so peaceful. A huge deck to relax and watch the view, and so close to the fisherman's wharf. The weather in Ochre Pit Cove wasn't the greatest this weekend, but just to relax in such a beautiful place was well worth the trip. Definitely a place we will go back to next year.
