St. John's house description

Battery House boasts magnificent accommodations and is located downtown St. John's at The Battery, a tiny authentic fishing village that sits on the base of Signal Hill National Historic Park. This four star Canada Select luxury accommodation offers a fully equipped home away from home.

Overlooking North America's oldest port city - St. John's, the Battery House is nestled in the million year old hills that are considered among the 'Earths Geological Showcase'. Step outside and you've joined the North Head Walking Trail that meanders 1.7 Kilometres (1.1 miles) around the entrance to St. John's Harbour ending at Cabot Tower on Signal Hill where Marconi received the first TransAtlantic wireless signal.

The spectacular view includes Fort Amherst built to defend the entrance to the city in the 1770's; Cape Spear - Newfoundland's oldest surviving lighthouse located on the most easterly point of North America; and the vast Atlantic Ocean where you'll enjoy whales, seabirds and icebergs in season.

For the Tourist,
Battery House offers an exceptional traditional Newfoundland vacation. You can experience the relaxed atmosphere of an 'Outport' or stroll 10 minutes to downtown to visit one of the many quaint cafes and shops nearby. For those who prefer to visit major attractions, walk to the Cabot Tower, Signal Hill National Historic Park, the Geo Centre, Quidi Vidi Village, Government House, the Rooms Provincial Art Gallery, Historic Churches and Museums or hike the North Head Walking Trail.
