About Yvonne & Boyd Fleming

My husband and I built this home ourselves as a summer cottage with our children who at the time were very young and they loved to help. Our cottage has a lot of beautiful memories for us. I wanted to be close to my family so my parents would have the opportunity to see my children grow and for them to know what it's like to grow up in a small community. This land that the cottage sits on has been passed down from generation to generation and has been in my family since the late 1800's. We used this land when I was growing up for hay for our horses.

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Linux Cottage overlooking Wittless Bay Ecological Reserve. It had everything we needed for our one week stay. We were perfectly comfortable and loved waking up every day to the sound of the waves crashing down below. Sometimes it was foggy and sometimes the sun was shining but it didnt't matter. We visited the small bakery just a stones throw away and ate at the Captains Table down Highway 10. We saw many many icebergs - one of the main reasons we came to Newfoundland. I would highly recommend Linux Cottage to anyone who doesn't mind being just a wee bit off the beaten track. The peace and quiet is worth it and the city is easily accessible if you want it. Thanks so much for sharing your cottage.

Much more than the view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights in April at Linex cottage. We came for the icebergs and were not disappointed. We saw icebergs move in and out of the channel between the islands and had two bobbing at the shoreline below the house for the entire visit. The views are spectacular, but the location was also a very convenient base from which to explore the southern and northern Avalon (Irish loop, Baccalieu trail, Admiral's Coast and the Killick Coast). Being from a rural area ourselves, we appreciated the dark nights and quiet mornings.

The house is beautifully laid out, spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Cozying up on the couch with a mug of tea and watching the ever changing sky and sea was the perfect end to a busy day of exploring.

You will not find more considerate and helpful hosts than Yvonne and Boyd. They ensured that we were comfortable during our stay and made excellent suggestions about sights to see and places to eat.

We would definitely visit Linex cottage again and certainly recommend it to others.

"From an Island to an Island"...a great location and a fully equipped cottage..., now that we left a "lobster pot". We travelled the whole Avalon Penninsula on day trips and a run up to Trinity, for the pageant, as well as chasing iceburgs up in Bay de Verde and then back home to a very comfortable bed, each day.

St John's was close and we made several trips in for a closer look at the big city and meet some friends ( some who own The Rocket Backery on Water Street, which is a must to visit for food and music) and then back to the quiet cove.

This was our home for two weeks and only because the capelin rolled in late, the very last day was filled with whale watching and quite a show it was...even right at the shoreline beneath the cottage deck.

Just down at the end of the road is a fishing dock and ramp...a great place to meet local fishermen and women and with luck you might find some sea life to purchase. In my case, because I helped a fisherman put in his boat, he took me back to his place and gave me a bag of freshly caught and filleted cod.

We were also very fortunate to participate in a "dig" across Tors Cove...which can be seen from the deck, to the left of the cottage, across the water.

Yvonne and Boyd were great hosts and shared their family history within the area.

Third trip to Newfoundland!

Great location to tour the Irish Loop

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, only 45 minutes from St John's. Fully kitted out with all kitchen appliances and washer/dryer. Owner just replaced BBQ! Comfortable bedrooms and large eating area. Nice deck. Close to Witless Bay/Tors Cove for sightseeing trips in the Ecological Reserve. Saw (literally) millions of birds on the tour we took - cute puffins bobbing on the water, murres, razorbills, kittiwakes, eagles and more. Easy access to the Irish Loop to visit such interesting places as the historical Colony of Avalon, ancient fossils at Mistaken Point, whale watching on St Vincent's beach (we saw humpbacks breaching very close to the shore!), and the cute animal park in Salmonier. For the avid hiker, the cottage is very close to many of the segments of the East Coast trail. You'll have to drive 10 minutes to do shopping for food and beverages. And the view is "million dollar". Cheers!

Million Dollar view-you bet!

  • 5 of 5

Five stars for sure. This cottage (more like a house and home)is fully stocked with everything you could ever need.

The scenery from the back windows and side deck is terrific .Great view of the nearby islands in the ecological reserve. We went hiking on two sections of the East Coast Trial, one trailhead a short walk from the cottage and the other a short drive-great scenery on a moderate trail.

All grocery shopping close by and don't forget to drop in to The Captain's Table for the fresh cod and chips!

We, like other guests should have stayed longer than our 3 days -next time for sure. One last note, you couldn't find hosts more helpful and pleasant than Yvonne and Boyd.

Don't miss this cottage!

Absolutelly excellent!!!! Very nice owner, fantastic cottage, great view and great price. We stayed here for a week, then we moved to the old Newfoundland Hotel in St. John's for 5 days, what a mistake, we should have stayed at this cottage for the entire trip. It's a 25 min ride to St. John's, the town has a bakery, Foodland is a 10 min drive away, it's next to a provincial park with nice swimming, on the Irish loop, I have to stop now because there are too many good things to mention and I would be here all day. Absolutely no regrets renting this cottage and next time we go back, which I hope is soon, I really hope this cottage is still available for rent.

PS People in Newfoundland are fantastic too, if everyone in the world was a from the island, we would have a beautiful world to live in.

Burnt Cove
Car: necessary

Located just 40 kilometres south of St. John's on Route 10 in a picturesque community of Burnt Cove just minutes outside of Tors Cove. The area offers a scenic drive along the Irish Loop and is close to many Tour Boat Operations. The property fronts on part of the East Coast Trail. Hiking to abandoned community of LaManche where there is a suspension bridge. This village was destroyed by a tidal wave back in the 1960's and people were forced to re-settle. This hike takes about 1.5 hours (approximately 5 kilometres). Don't forget to take a short detour to Doctor's Cove. If you're looking for some traditional Newfoundland food the renowned Captain's Table in Mobile is your place. Try out their fish & chips or delicious fish cakes. Ocean View Bakery is just a short walk away where you can enjoy homemade fresh breads and an assortment of cookies. LaManche Provincial Park is only 15 minutes away and offers day use with a swimming area. Try taking the hike to LaManche Falls and go for a dip. Visit St. Michael's Catholic Church which is over a hundred years old and is only a five minute walk from the cottage. If it's gifts or souvenirs you're looking for be sure to go to Alderberry Blum which is located in Bay Bulls. If you like history, the place to go is Ferryland, Colony of the Avalon which is located about 25 minutes from the cottage where there is an archaelogical dig, interpretation centre, gift shop with tradional Newfoundland gifts and a display of the finds. While you're there take a short walk out to Ferryland Head Lighthouse and enjoy a picnic overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Also, in this area during the summer months they have a dinner theatre with local talent. Be sure to make reservations. Local art can be found at the Five Island Art Gallery in Tors Cove.
