Property description

This home was created my parents, she a keen gardener from England, he an educator  and businessman who was raised in the community. They  retired here and created a  unique environment amid the rugged setting of an authentic fishing village.  The home is surrounded by hand-planted trees and gardens, and it offers fabulous views of Old  Bonaventure harbour and beautiful  Trinity Bay.     At the rear of the house a small waterfall flows into a stream which runs right under the  house and through the front lawn, providing a most relaxing soundscape for restful  nights of sleep and memorable afternoon naps.     The two double bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, accommodate four adults.  There is a large, well-equipped kitchen with double ovens, a five-ring stove top and a dishwasher, along with every imaginable utensil. There is a breakfast area positioned
beneath a skylight, and a more formal dining table overlooking the harbour. The comfortable lounge area is especially cosy with plenty of seating. It also features an inviting 
Vermont Castings wood-burning stove with a supply of firewood. Wi-fi internet access 
reaches all parts of the house and property. For entertainment,  there is a flat­screen TV with Bell satellite service. DVD and CD players are also provided, along with a Bluetooth speaker for iPhones, etc.  A landline phone is provided, with  Canada/US­ wide unlimited long distance calling. This helps offset the fact that, like most rural Newfoundland communities, Old Bonaventure is not serviced by any cell phone service provider.  
The secluded garden features a pond and a wide variety of plants that provide  spectacular colour throughout the spring/summer/fall seasons. The harbour­facing side of the house has a deck (with a gas BBQ). On warm days,  this is a perfect spot to enjoy sunsets, watch fishing boats come and go, and to see  magnificent eagles soar overhead from their nearby nests. There is a glass­roofed  conservatory which is perfect for enjoying those cooler days and for star­gazing at  night. For the musically inclined, there is also a superb piano. For readers, there is a  huge selection of books that cover every interest. Finally, there is an ample collection of  board games and playing cards.    This inviting home is the ideal retreat for a restful and restorative holiday. And when  you are rested, numerous nearby attractions await to connect you with the beauty and  fascinating history of this special part of Newfoundland. For instance, the film site of the acclaimed “Random Passage” series is just a five ­minute drive. (Just one of four films  shot in this area in recent years.) Hiking trails take you to the resettled outports of  Kerley’s Harbour and British Harbour. The Skerwink Trail, an essential experience for  hikers with spectacular views, is just 30 minutes away. Boat excursions for  whale­watching and for glimpsing historic and enigmatic resettled outports depart daily  from New Bonaventure and Trinity. If that is not enough history to satisfy, the 
500 year ­old town of Trinity is only 25 minutes away. The options are endless...and the  comments of previous visitors speak for themselves! This is a holiday experience that  you will want to share with others.
