Property description

Situated on the edge of The Narrows at the entrance to the Port of St. John’s, a beautiful and unique vacation home located in a former light keeper’s house at Fort Amherst - the site of the first lighthouse in Newfoundland and one of the most photographed sites in the province. This property is one of two vacation homes operated at the Fort Amherst Light Station. The head light keeper's residence is also available for rent, please visit our listing at vrbo #469496.

Two bedrooms (one with king-size bed and one with twin beds) each with flat screen TVs, pull out sofa bed, two full bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, BBQ, dishwasher, washer/dryer. Front deck with views of Signal Hill and the harbourfront. Sit back and watch the boats entering and leaving St. John’s Harbour. Enjoy whale watching from our large rear deck overlooking the spectacular Atlantic Ocean. Depending on the season lucky guests will have amazing views of icebergs along the coastline. Entrance point to the East Coast Trail just steps away.
