Chalet retreat in the heart of Gros Morne National Park

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,300 sq. ft.
Property type chateau / country house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Million dollar view of Bonne Bay and Gros Morne Mountain.

On the hillside overlooking Woody Point, Bonne Bay and Gros Morne Mountain, on the road to Trout River and the majestic Tablelands this cabin is located in one of the most beautiful and scenic areas to be found anywhere. Parks Canada's Discovery Centre is in walking distance. Located on the outskirts of the town, this property is peaceful and private.

Woody Point is a registered heritage community, located within a UNESCO World Heritage site, Gros Morne National Park. The town is well known for the Writers at Woody Point Festival each August, as well as being a location for the wonderful summer events of Gros Morne Summer Music.

There is a television in the house, but currently no cable service although there are videos to watch if requested. There is cellular coverage for companies using the Bell cell network and recently the Rogers network became available here too. There is no telephone in the house.

There is a lot on the go in Woody Point during the peak of the season. In the spring I send an email to guests coming for the season with information about the area.

Some comments from my guest book:

"We had a fantastic time staying in your cabin!The view from the back deck combined with the extra comfy bed made it the perfect stay! :-)"

"Thank you for the great house! We lived the view and had a wonderful time in Gros Morne. We loved the wildlife at your house, a noise came to visit one morning, we also saw hummingbirds and crows."

"We stayed in your wonderfully artistic, warm & inviting home for the last days of our 2 week visit to Newfoundland. It rained, but fortunately your house us so delightful it did not matter. We made great food in your kitchen, so well stocked, and enjoyed the deck when the rain paused."

"We had a wonderful time at your cabin. Amazing views, great weather, many hiking adventures. Lived sitting on the back deck enjoying the beautiful views. Learned many interesting facts about the area. Everyone is so friendly."

"Thank you for sharing this lovely retreat with us. It was the perfect home base for exploration if the Park & local communities. The night at the Seaside was particularly memorable - the music was lovely!"

About Gayle Tapper

My Dad was from Woody Point, and I have recently built this house on land given to me by my aunt, for whom the property is named. My aunt was a well-known outdoors woman in her day.

There are great Park Trails nearby, such as the Green Gardens Trail. Gros Morne Mountain is on the north side of the park, about an hour's drive around the bay, where also are the communities of Norris Point and Rocky Harbour. Also the Western Brook Pond is located north of Rocky Harbour.

fantastic location for visiting Gros Morne

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location. House was nice and cozy - a little too cluttered with a lot of trinkets and the bathroom appeared to be mid-renovation. Kitchen well stocked. Beds were comfortable.

The driveway was at times challenging to get up. Gros Morne is a must see!

A cozy mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our 3-night stay. The house is perched on a mountainside overlooking water and mountains. It's just a few seconds drive from stores, restaurants and dockside in Woody Point, but feels totally secluded and you don't see any other houses even with the curtains and skylights open. We would stay again if we had the chance. The Tablelands, Lookout Trail, and Green Gardens Trail are just a few minutes down the road. Climbing to the top of the Tablelands was a highlight of our stay. We were able to make good use of the kitchen and found some excellent books on Newfoundland history in the bookshelf. On our last night, we heard Gayle playing the harp at the Seaside Restaurant in Trout River. Altogether a great experience.

Charming, private property with a million dollar view and an "at home" feel.

  • 5 of 5

A charming, cozy, welcoming, relaxing home-like environment, with a million dollar view. Extremely private and quiet area within minutes of local amenities (walk or drive). Clean, comfortable beds, linens, towels and bathrooms. Well stocked kitchen for people who enjoy cooking; we took a trip to the local fish market in Rocky Harbour to prepare a lovely seafood feast back at the house. Gayle is a gracious host; gives you space, but always available by phone, text or in-person as needed. We had a medical emergency and Gayle was an absolute gem in terms of offering information and suggestions around how best to access medical care in the area. Lots of tourist related information available at the house and where to find additional information if you can't find what you are looking for there. The house is still under construction; while this did not prevent us from enjoying ourselves, for some it may be off-putting. For example, a tub had been installed in the upstairs bathroom, but the shower was not yet operational. It actually turned out to be serendipitous for us as it forced us to slow down and really unwind with long relaxing soaks in the the bath instead of quick, efficient showers. Albeit for others, bits and pieces of unfinished carpentry, plumping, drywall, etc., could be just the thing one wants to avoid on vacation. To each his own. We would gladly visit again and recommend this location.

Car: recommended

Woody Point is renowned for its beauty. It is nearby to the Tablelands, part of an ancient oceanic tectonic plate, and evidence of the theory of tectonic plate movement. Beauty and the Tablelands are 2 of the reasons that Gros Morne National Park has UNESCO World Heritage status.

Park and community trails and walking are nearby, also the Parks Canada Discovery Centre is very close. I have a great view of Gros Morne Mountain, for which the park is named, but you'll have to drive around the bay to climb it, as it is on the north side of the park, along with Rocky Harbour and Norris Point.

Woody Point is home of St. Patrick's Church, now a performance space where many events of Gros Morne Summer Music are held. Also we are the home of the famous and immensely popular festival "Writers at Woody Point" each year in August.
