About Rochelle Spracklin

I am a born and bred Newfoundlander. I was born on the west coast, lived in Labrador for many years and even longer in St. John's. I have always dreamed of owning a property on the Battery....one of the truly spectacular, unique areas in the world. This cottage will allow me to share this special place with old and new friends. So if you want to visit home, take that dream trip, explore an amazing place, Battery Bluff Cottage is for you.

Rochelle Spracklin purchased this cottage in 2015

Amazing Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is an absolute gem with perfect location overlooking the harbour. Walk to downtown St. John's, easy access to hiking trails and attractions. Cottage is spacious but cosy, and has all the comforts of home. Very nicely decorated with a nautical theme. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this cottage!

Excellent stay. Loved the location,

  • 5 of 5

Cute 2 bedroom house at the top of Battery Top Road. The house overlooks the harbour. It was great fun to watch the ships come in and leave. The location was perfect for walking along the trails to Signal Hill or downtown to get a bite to eat. The house was clean, well maintained and the owner was very attentive to any questions or concerns. She responded quickly and solved a small problem I faced with billing. Lots of great suggestions for things to do, as well. But we loved the hiking the island offers. Would recommend this for a couple(s) get away. Thanks for making our stay memorable.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The Battery Bluff Cottage B is a clean , cozy and comfortable cottage. It also has a fabulous balcony to watch the boats come and go from the harbour.

The location is great to walk through the Battery and onto the trail around to Signal Hill or onto Quidi Vidi. Plus it is an easy walk to downtown and the shops, bars and restaurants. Stop at the Battery Cafe. A few minutes from the cottage and a perfect place for coffee and a treat.

We loved our stay here and hope to return again soon.
