Lark Harbour House is a Seaside Heritage Home. It has been operating successfully as a vacation rental property since 2012. Typical of other fishing houses of the time, the two story, two bedroom home is constructed of local pine, some planks 12 to 18 inches wide. The house is fully furnished. In the living room you will find a sofa bed, a rocking chair and a lovely high backed seat. Sit in the rocker and watch the fishermen go off for their morning catch and maybe see a whale chasing a pod of porpoises. Appliances are brand new and the kitchen is fully stocked - all you need to bring are your groceries, which you can pick up on your way out from Corner Brook or at the local grocery/ liquor/ gas station two minutes from the house. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms and an office. Sit at the office and write as you look out to the sea and mountains. Bedroom one has a double bed and bedroom two has a couple of twin beds. You will notice the absolute silence within the house as you drift off to slumber, a comment frequently mentioned by guests. You will fall asleep to silence and wake up to seagulls in the harbour, a calming and gentle way to arise. Sit at the dining room table as you have your morning coffee or take it outside and sit in one of the Muskoka chairs. As you are in a fishing community, you can stroll down the road and maybe chat with a fisherman coming in with his daily catch. You may be able to buy yourself some fresh lobster, crab, cod, mackerel, halibut or whatever fish is in season.
Seaside Heritage Home built in 1890

About Shelley Swift
We currently own a property in Lark Harbour just a few house down the road from Lark Harbour house. My wife and I enjoy our summers in Lark Harbour boating and fishing.
Shelley Swift purchased this House in 2016
Why Shelley Swift chose York Harbour
My wife has lived in Lark Harbour her whole life - she grew up just a few houses away from Lark Harbour house - actually, her Aunt was one of the first owners of Lark Harbour house. This property thus has historical significance for us and we are very happy to now have the opportunity to keep it running as a vacation rental. We are sure you will develop a love of the property as we currently do.

A hidden gem!
The quaintness and the history that surrounds this little gem makes for a very comfortable visit! It is equipped with all of the amenities and more!
So happy that you enjoyed your stay - hope to see you again next year
Well equipped property. Everything we needed was there. Very quiet and peaceful. Great hiking trails and scenery. The roof has a few leaks, around the chimney and in the kitchen.
Thanks so much and so happy that you enjoyed your stay
Great place to stay
Thanks so much - glad that you enjoyed your stay!
A great place to stay.
A great place to stay a couple of days relaxing and enjoying the area, perfect location right by the sea. Very local and felt very welcome. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Would be happy to return again at any time.
2 night stay
Some issues on arrival with no cell service and property locked on arrival. Store owner down the road was of great assistance!
Property itself was in a great vicinity to walk trails and enjoy the scenery.
It is a heritage house and we enjoyed having the use of the woodstove
Thanks for your review. We have rectified the key issue by installing a lock key box on the house which will avoid having to pick up the keys at the store - again we apologize for the mix up on that day that you arrived. So happy that you enjoyed the house and your stay.
Comfortable base for hiking
This historic property was warm and comfortable and very spacious. It was a good base for local hiking trails but perhaps a bit isolated for exploring wider Newfoundland.
Thanks! We are happy that you found the house comfortable. We do have some amazing hiking trails in this area for sure - hope you are able to visit our beautiful province again to take in more of what other areas also have to offer.
