Efficiency Home available in Fermeuse

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

Total relaxation in quiet ocean front setting. Lots of parking. 1600 sq ft home

Our efficiency home was built in 1869 by Mr. Patrick Walsh, orginally from Port Kerwin. Patrick passed away in 1932 and James, his son, became owner. It continued to be passed down in the Walsh family, and was purchased by Patricks Great, Great, Great grandsons and restoration began in the spring of 2010.

We restored the house as close as possible to its original layout, but also added modern comforts and some openess, to take advantage of the wonderful view of Fermeuse harbour.

Three bedrooms can sleep six, and a Futon downstairs can sleep two.

Located on the Fermeuse Harbour, sit on the deck and enjoy the ocean. Not far from entrance to East Coast Trail. Only need to bring food, as it is ready to live in.

Guestbook comments from the manager

3 couples, mostly seniors, in fact one gentleman was 93, stayed at this premise in early August 2012. We had a wonderful time. The property was everything that was advertised and more. The keepers of the property were close by and were very helpful in making our stay enjoyable. Every year we stay at a different location and this was one of our most memorable stays. The location is quiet, the amenities excellent and the deck makes a lovely retreat on a warm, fine evening. If the moon is out it is a bonus. We would certainly recommend this property.

Efficiency Home available in Fermeuse
average rating of 4.736842 based on 20 reviews

Nice saltbox home on the harbour at Fermeuse.

  • 3 of 5

Great house - location is lovely. House is clean and kept nicely.

Do note that it really sleeps 6. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs- 2 with water views. Last bed is a double futon in laundry/utility room.

Also, you will be charged $15 per person per night after 2 people. This significantly increases nightly amount for groups of more than 2.

No internet even though username/password posted in kitchen. Bring your own wood for bonfire.

Beautiful spot on the harbour

  • 5 of 5

Five friends came down to ring in the new year. There were a bunch of very impressive fire work shows that went off around the bay and we had a view of the whole thing. The kitchen was well equipped and the house is close to the East Coast Trail. Very comfortable and spacious. Lucy even called us on our way down to check in with us! She is a lovely lady. We would stay here again!

Rooms with a view

  • 5 of 5

Whether you want to sit around the fire or get comfy on the couch, this gorgeous old home with its well thought out updates is a crowd pleaser. I brought my wife and two other couples here for a birthday surprise kid free time. The pictures are a true to life representation of this home. We plan on returning here a couple more times in the coming year.

Fermeuse Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice vacation rental. Interior was very modern and convenient. Bedrooms and bathroom were very clean and spacious. Fermeuse wharf was with in walking distance and in typical NF hospitality one of the locals provided us with a free fresh catch of cod for dinner. Deck overlooked the water which provided entertainment watching the local boat activity. Fermeuse is only a short drive from Argentia which let us settle in and get prepared for the rest of our adventure around NF. Lucy the owner was very friendly and accommodating. I would recommend this vacation rental to anyone.
