Description

The space

Welcome'Ome!

Shaun Majumder invites you to come 'Ome and experience the scenic beauty of Burlington, Green Bay, Newfoundland. Located in Iceberg alley, on the north shore of "The Rock", 'Ome is the perfect way to experience stunning rural NL.

A walk through a wooded trail heading towards the ocean leads you to a cluster of thoughtfully oriented tents, each with its own unique character. Each spacious 14 by 16 'Ome luxury tent, sleeps 1-4 people comfortably, and comes furnished with pillow top queen size beds. The hand made bed frames sit on hardwood floors that extend outside the tent as a front deck for lounging.

Each site has a number of communal bathroom buildings which will house Sun-Mar Excel high capacity waterless toilets. We are proud to provide this environmentally responsible technology for our visitors.

There is a community shower building located behind the town hall.

The 'Ome project is a part of a larger social enterprise spearheaded by Canadian actor/writer/comedian Shaun Majumder. His goal is to bring tourism to his 'Ome-town of Burlington NL by creating social businesses which will fuel a sustainable micro economy for the region. All revenue generated goes back into the project and the community. The overall community project includes luxury camping, cabins, and a central lodge. Plus the construction of a community greenhouse and subsequent “Hummock View Greens”.

And a summer festival called The Gathering


The project was featured on the hit television series "Majumder Manor" which aired in Canada on the W network.

Guest access

****The TENTS are located in a somewhat remote location and requires some walking on UNEVEN GROUND and CURRENTLY IS NOT WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE. Some moderate "hiking" is required. It's a short walk on an newly cut trail to get down to the tents, but every step will be worth it!

The neighbourhood

Burlington is a town of roughly 350 people located on the eastern side of the Baie Verte Peninsula between the towns of Middle Arm and Smith's Harbour. Situated in the heart of Ice Berg alley, Burlington is home to some of the most breathtaking coastline on the island of Newfoundland. With so many hidden coves and rocky inlets dotting the shore, Green Bay has some of the finest sea kayaking in Eastern Canada. Its surrounding hills are ideal for hiking and exploration, and the abundance of rivers and brooks that flow into Burlington provide some spectacular fresh water fishing. During the winter months, this region of Newfoundland can be twice as active as the summer with hundreds of kilometers of snowmobile trails criss crossing the peninsula. Without a doubt, Burlington is an all year destination.

Other things to note

We have 2 separate glamping sites:

Site A is a wooded area with easy trail access to the beach and views of the ocean. The FOX, MOOSE, WHALE, SQUID, and COD are closely located on the same site, with ample privacy.

Site B: The ocean front tents are the RABBIT, PUFFIN, EAGLE, and NIPPER. If you are traveling in a group and require 2 tents close to each other, or need direct drive up access to the tents, the NIPPER and EAGLE are ideal.

The location is absolutely beautiful on the water, the canvas tents comfy and just as described, and the local communities full of character. Local information provided (hikes, waterfalls, grocery options, etc.) was excellent. We loved the chance to support a great new initiative in a community that needs the economic diversification ... and it was very cool to have a chance to meet Shaun himself and have a little chat. Couldn't have been more delighted!

I absolutely loved staying at "Ome". I felt like a princess sitting in bed, enjoying my coffee, overlooking the ocean, in a bed piled high with duvets. It was a great stay that I would totally recommend. It's clear that there is a lot of pride in this operation, and it's well earned. Here are some pros and some things that would be useful to know in future. PRO: Money from your stay, stay's in Burlington. Shop local during your stay. Property is or very near the ocean on a quiet road Short walk from car to tent (in my case about 60 metres) Each tent has a fire pit/picnic table Each tent has a coffee maker Electricity in tents for small devices (no hairdryer) Tents are private Bedding is fantastic, and adequate for cool nights Main house has wi-fi, TV, cooking facilities Check-in and communication with Sam was very easy, and she was very helpful Each tent has it's own bathroom facility nearby USEFUL TO KNOW: Bring your own coffee grinds Bring your own shampoo/conditioner Tents can get quite cool at night, so bring warm stuff No cell service (at least from Telus) trails can be a little uneven, so bring shoes other than flip flops Showers may be up to 1km away

This is one of our favorite stops along our Newfoundland tour! The staff were friendly and knowledable and the tent site we stayed in was amazing. It was very clean and cozy, even in the rain! Sean supplies the wood and fire making supplies so we cooked up some supper. The view is breathtaking and if you get the chance, rent the pod. It is handmade and just beautiful!! This is a must-see spot in Newfoundland and will be on our list when we return!!!

We were welcomed by a girl named Sam when we arrived in Burlington. She was so full of energy and life and made me excited to explore the area with my family.she guided us to our tent and we were pleasantly surprised! The view was unbelievable. My kids were so excited to glamp! We were able to navigate around the area easily as Sam provided me with a rundown of everything I need to know, where to find restaurants, grocery, swimming spots, waterfalls etc. We had a great night and will definitely be back! Thank you omesweetome!

Thank you so much for your interest in visiting my 'Ome town of Burlington Newfoundland.

For those of you who haven't seen our documentary series "Majumder Manor" on W Network in Canada, let me give you some background on what it is we are doing and how 'Ome is connect.

You see, I've always had love for Newfoundland and more specifically Burlington on the Baie Verte Peninsula. Despite moving away as a young teenager, I've always felt a deep love for the place and returned 'Ome often. And every chance I'd get, I would bring friends or family to experience the remote rugged beauty of the place.

Of course we'd always find places for people to stay, but without any hotels, Inn's or BnB's in the immediate area, space was always a problem. So after purchasing some land during a visit back 'Ome one summer, I knew I had to build places for people to stay. And not only that, but I also realized that with a lot of people moving away to places like Alberta for work, and small towns all over the island shrinking, I wanted to create a reason for the people who already live there to stay. To stay in the place they've always called 'Ome.

And so this is what we are doing...

'Ome Luxury Tents are the initial steps towards our long term goal of creating a sustainable micro economy for the towns of Burlington, Middle Arm, and Smith's Harbour through tourism. First we are focusing on the 'Ome Luxury Tents, then moving to our 'Ome Pods- cabin like structures remotely place throughout the area, and eventually a central lodge with a restaurant. All places for you to call 'Ome when you visit.

And we're doing it as a social enterprise with all of the revenues and profits generated to be repurposed through the company back into the community in one way or another. The money you spend while 'Ome, goes back into the town through the social business. So not only do you get to have a unique cultural travel experience by visiting Burlington through our 'Ome project, but your dollars are going towards supporting a larger community initiative. Its a win win for everyone!

And of course as an actor/writer/comedian I had to create a TV show to document the entire process which is how "Majumder Manor" was born. Along with my partners Rob and Peter Blackie at "Take The Shot" productions, we are currently producing our second season of MM which will air July 2014 on the W Network. Its an honest, hilarious, refreshing look at the trials and tribulations of creating our social enterprise in rural NL.

Again thank you for visiting! I hope you continue to do so as this project will continue to grow over the years to come thanks to you.

Thanks and we will see you in Burlington, Middle Arm and Smith's Harbour!

SM
