About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

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.) We regret that we cannot acommodate large events and thank you for respecting our wonderful house and the peace of our amazing neighbors. THE NEW WEBSITE DOES NOT ALWAYS CALCULATE THE RATES CORRECTLY, ESPECIALLY FOR MORE THAN 2 PEOPLE STAYING A WEEK, SO PLEASE CONTACT US TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE QUOTED THE CORRECT RATE.

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 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.

Big beautiful home on the coast

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location, the house is fully equipped - everything you could possibly need & spotless- and we saw whales every day from the back porch. The house is right beside a waterfall, near the East Coast trail (amazing trail!) and a gorgeous lookout. Close enough for day trips to St John’s, Witless Bay and Ferryland. The first night there someone did a fireworks show over the bay. The house is huge. 4 bedrooms upstairs with two bathrooms, and a large living area. Downstairs has a beautiful master suite- fully accessible. There is a view from every room. The house was better than we were expecting. We had a really hard time leaving!

Roomy with a view

  • 4 of 5

House had more than enough room for six people.

The views are fantastic, and although a little challenging to get to, the waterfall is definitely worth the effort.

All the comforts of home were waiting for us when we arrived.

Short walk down to the water and the walking trail.

Repeat Visitors

  • 5 of 5

We love this place so much, it is our second time there. Perfect for a group of ladies on a bridge getaway. Darlene, who looks after things, is extremely easy to deal with and always there if you need help with anything.

We hope to make Anchor Rock a regular place for us to visit !

Absolutely fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Anchor Rock for a week in July. It was our first trip to Newfoundland and I simply cannot think of a single bad thing to say other than Air Canada lost our luggage but that was hardly the fault of anyone in Nfld. And the Newfoundlanders could not have been kinder, lending us clothing, helping with the retrieval, anything that would make our stay more comfortable. We have rented many houses over the years, in several countries, and I can honestly say this was the best equipped house we have ever experienced. It was quiet, clean and well furnished, the beds were comfortable, there was nothing you could want that was not provided. Anything you could want in the kitchen was at hand, including condiments, dry goods, even chocolates! We sat on our deck and watched the whales in the bay every day, bought crab from the fish processing plant (which was outstanding), travelled around the entire Avalon Peninsula and saw more species of whales than we ever expected. BUT we never saw a moose, even though everyone cautioned us to watch out for them! And we looked! Darlene and Randy who care for you and the house are exceptional hosts and can not do enough for the visitors. In short, it was a perfect holiday and I cannot recommend the house, the people and the province highly enough.

We had a fabulous stay at Anchor Rock Lookout!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in Brigus South at Anchor Rock! The accommodations are superb! Comfy beds, every convenience you need, amazing views of the bay, close to trails! What more could one ask for? We enjoyed our family wedding with Anchor Rock as home base. The groom and his party dressed here, had a sociable to relax them and proceeded to the big event in Admirals Cove. Many wedding guests came by for a visit. It was a perfect space for us. We hope to return for a quieter weekend soon. Many thanks to Randy and Darlene for their help in making it perfect!

Fans of Nfld

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we have rented a house or cottage via the internet and we were a little nervous. Our fears were not founded because Anchor Rock was just as described on VRBO and better. It was very well supplied and we were surprised and appreciative of the care package that Randy brought us our first night. Our ages ranged from 2 to 67 years and the house suited all of our needs. The house was a good base point to do touring. We booked a lighthouse picnic at Ferryland and even though it turned foggy and rained later,it was a highlight of our trip. You need to book these lunches well in advance as it books up quickly.its an easy drive to St. John's with all of the sights to see there. We drove the Irish Loop to,see the scenery. We made wonderful memories at Anchor Rock and would highly recommend renting the house to anyone.
