About Sarah Patten

I was born and raised in Pouch Cove and my family also lives here. I lived in Labrador City for 12 years from 1965 to 1977 and my son and daughter were born there. I moved back in 1977 and built this house that I am currently renting. I have an unobstructed view of the Atlantic ocean and it is approximately 50 feet from my door. I decided to rent my home because I am a cancer survivor and want to retain my home. I am not yet ready to sell. And this keeps me busy and I meet lots of wonderful people.

Sarah Patten purchased this house in 1977

Why Sarah Patten chose Canada

This property has a great location of the Pouch Cove Harbour. You can see all around the harbour.

We had a grand time in Newfoundland and Pouch Cove. The only thing we would suggest for the house is more silverware. Thanks so much

Lovely stay!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a 3 night stay in this wonderful family home, in a great location. We so appreciate the fact that the owners are animal lovers...they let us bring our dogs with us, without a fuss and at no extra charge. We love the location! It is only a short drive from all the amenities of St. Johns and yet you get to stay in a small historic community, with access to the east coast trail. The trail literally goes by the back door. The home itself is welcoming and has everything you could possibly need for a short or long stay. We would definitely stay here again.

Peaceful And welcoming home away from home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a tranquil, homey getaway, Sarah's place might be exactly what you are in need of! The family property is situated right on the water, the slightest hint of the waves crashing on the shore below can be heard. Loud enough to be a comfort for those who relax around water. Quiet enough to not disturb a peaceful evening.

We were welcomed warmly, and felt right at home during our weekend escape. Our dogs were welcomed too, without question! I only wish we could've stayed longer. We sure are hoping to return! Thanks Sarah!!!

We had a fantastic time at our home away on Pouch Cove. The view of the ocean was a dream. The house and property itself was even more beautiful than the pictures on the website. The kitchen was really large and well stocked with anything we needed. The beds were super-cozy and the accommodations were clean and comfortable. Sarah and JJ were helpful and very welcoming. The resident pony, Trinity, only added to the overall charm. If you are a hiker, it is a paradise. There are blueberries everywhere on your hike. If you just want to relax, you have come to the perfect place. St. Johns is not far away at all and there is everything there that you need. It's fun for shopping, sightseeing, restaurants, etc. We loved our home away experience and really do want to go back there soon. I would highly recommend out accommodations in Pouch Cove to anyone.

wonderful coastal location!

  • 4 of 5

Sarah and her family were very welcoming. The house is very large and well stocked with all of the supplies that you could need. The location is very scenic and having the eastern coastal trail at the doorstep was amazing. We would definitely come back.
