About the Property
Three Bedroom Fishing Village Saltbox
It was featured on the cover and a seven page article in the 'HOME & CABIN' magazine. You can see this article and view the fantastic slideshow if you visit homeandcabin.ca and type 'Baccalieu cottage' in the search area.
It sits proudly in a meadow in the fishing village of Ochre Pit Cove along the scenic Baccalieu Trail in Conception Bay North, approx. 140 km. from the capital city of St. John's.
This comfortable home is a cozy place to unwind after a long day of hiking and sightseeing. Take a two minute walk to the fishermens wharf and see what todays catch will bring. There is also a whale watching area close to the wharf where you can see the whales breach as they feed on the schools of caplin in the bay.
The cottage has been furnished throughout with country antiques and local art as well as unusual quirky re-purposed decorator items. There is a large deck which wraps around the back and side to sit back and enjoy the ocean breezes. Baccalieu (codfish in Portuguese) Cottage will certainly offer you something more than the usual vacation cottage.
The Baccalieu Trail offers lots to do, you can hike, sightsee, or take a day trip to nearby Trinity Bay where you will discover charming little towns with names like 'Hearts Content, 'Hearts Desire, and 'Hearts Delight'. Photographic opportunities are everywhere. Northern Bay Sands Park is just a few minutes away where you can enjoy a large sandy beach and freshwater swimming hole. If you are brave enough, you can take a dip in the cold Atlantic ocean. Take a day trip to visit the historic towns of Cupids and Brigus where you can take in a live show or sample the tasty goodies offered at the annual Blueberry Festival.
For your entertainment when you just want to sit at home we have wireless internet, cable tv. telephone, stereo, reading material and family board games.
Please note that this region has some of the most beautiful scenery you will find anywhere but it also has a rugged coastline with cliffs. When you are exploring and enjoying the area please use caution and supervise any children in your care.

Baccalieu Cottage is located in a small fishing village on the north shore of Conception Bay, Nl. The home is a refurbished mid nineteenth century fishermans home with all the modern conveniences. The area offers fantastic views along both Trinity and Conception Bays. There are icebergs in the spring and whale-watching is a favourite activity of guests at the cottage. There are also lots of opportunities to explore the rugged coastline and photographic opportunities are everywhere. Trinity Bay is just a short drive away and you can visit little coastal communities with names like 'Hearts Content, 'Hearts Desire' and 'Hearts Delight' to name a few. Northern Bay Sands Park is just a few minutes drive away where you can spend the day just relaxing on the beach or if you are brave enough, you can take a dip in the cold Atlantic ocean. Hiking trails are close to the cottage and the village of Grates Cove offers a great place to spend the day exploring. The nearby active fishing town of Bay D' Verde has a museum which will give you an idea of the way of life experienced by Newfoundlanders in days gone by. Just two minutes walk from the cottage you can watch the activity of the friendly local fishermen as they return from the fishing grounds with their catch. Carbonear is a larger town just 20 minutes drive away where you will find supermarkets, shopping and boat tours of the coastline.
Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: I am a retired medical professional who has spent most weekends and all my summers in this area of the Baccalieu Trail for the past number of years. When this property became available in 2001 my husband and I along with a family friend decided to buy it and restore it to its original glory and this year we decided to allow visitors to rent it and enjoy the same newfoundland experience we have been enjoying in this area for many years.
Why the Owner Chose Ochre Pit Cove, NL, Canada:
This little gem is probably the oldest traditional saltbox home along the Baccalieu Trail and when the opportunity became available to purchase it, we didn't hesitate and it has been a labor of love bringing it back to life. Now it sits proudly in this great little fishing village.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We have a large wrap around patio which give great ocean views and the interior is furnished with antiques and vintage, quirky re-purposed furniture.
