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!

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.

We really enjoyed the peace and quiet. The only sounds were birds, ocean and rain on the tent. Despite the rain, we loved this experience. As the description stated, the trail to the tents are somewhat rough,but it's only a short walk from the main check-in point. Our host Brady, was pleasant, informative and very attentive. He explained all the ins and outs a of the glamping experience . The beds were very very comfortable and fresh smelling. The outdoor experience is definitely guaranteed with a little luxury. We brewed our coffee (yes perked coffee and coffee maker were provided) and it delicious and enjoyed in our tent. The best part was that we played several board games with our son (no internet) and we had a lot of fun.

To preface this review, we're two city dwellers with no camping/glamping experience, who took the plunge with 'Ome. Overall, our stay was just OK. The room itself was very spacious and the beds incredibly comfortable. But, improvements can be made to the Airbnb listing to make the stay a bit more transparent. We stayed in the “Treehouse.” With wet conditions, the walkway to the site was a bit tight and treacherous. Improvements could be made to make it more accessible. You also stare right at trees, so not much of a view really. With this particular site, you are also right next to the outhouse. Great, in terms of closeness, but the lights stay on all night, so something to cover your eyes is needed. Also, expect to hear traffic going to and from the toilets. The grill/fire situation was unclear from the listing and left us empty handed eating our own food while being in an area that doesn't do much for people with food allergies or certain diets. We banked on being able to use the outdoor fire pit to cook, but there was no possibility of lighting a fire because the weather was terrible. The fire pits in fact are oil drum sized containers to burn wood, with a metal grate you can put over top. Most of the food at the local diner was deep fried, and generally unsatisfying, with few vegetarian options. Plan ahead if there’s wet weather, and doubly plan ahead if you have any dietary restrictions. If you have the means to bring other ways of cooking, good on you. We would have liked to see more from the 'Ome food truck, in terms of veggie or vegan options. The main house does have a landline and wifi if needed. Cell service drops off about 1/2 hour away from the site. My impression was that these sites were spread out, but they are not. Really, you are clustered quite close together. You have neighbours, and for the Treehouse included, you share something akin to a communal space, given the way the house is perched. The comfort station/shower wasn't in the best of shape, and so we held off from using them. There's no one around, and the wet and windy weather blew open the doors and made the space really wet and smelly. Overall, we thought that ‘Ome would attract a particular crowd, but a lot needs to be done with the surrounding area to match the expectations and different needs of the people coming.

We stayed in the treehouse (aptly named). Access was along a fairly good walkable path (lit with solar) but had a steep flat-ish rock to traverse to get to the treehouse tent - not a problem but might be an issue for someone else (then again glamping might not be the first choice for those people anyway). There was a little bit of ocean views from the deck (take the path to the beach for great ocean views). Tents are fairly close to one another but the topography dictates where a tent could be placed so can't find fault with that because they also run electrical to each tent (solar powered) so they need to be reasonably close to the hub. A great overnight stay. Tent was very comfortable and the beds were the best - very comfortable. Toilet huts were very clean and the comfort station down the road in behind the community centre were very clean. Sam checked us in with a smile and didn't miss a detail about the area and amenities even when we arrived with mere moments to spare at 5pm. Good Wifi at the main house (dead zone for cell service). Great dinner at the Cafe in Middle Arm and had a great chat. Lovely initiative by Shaun and crew to support the three communities - people super friendly and helpful. It doesn't really get better so GO and explore, stay a night or two and support the people back OME.

Very cool experience! The bed was more comfy than my home bed! Burlington and Middle Arm both a charm to visit. Worth the detour, for sure.

Loved the experience... Beautiful scenery. Tents were awesome!!

Thank you so much for your interest in visiting my 'Ometown of Burlington Newfoundland. My name is Shaun Majumder founder of this little social enterprise we like to call 'Ome, and for those of you who haven't seen the documentary series "Majumder Manor" on W Network in Canada, let me give you some background on what it is we are doing. This is not your typical AirBnB!

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

But without any hotels, Inn's or BnB's in the immediate area, finding space for people to stay was always a problem. So during the summer of 2008, I was 'Ome and I thought "I wonder if there's any land around for sale?" As it turned out, the old three room school house that I went to school as a child, and many in Burlington went to was just sitting there rotting away. I asked around and found out that the lady who owned it was willing to sell. So after a tough negotiation, I purchased the school for a whopping $2700.00!

The question was, what would I do with it? Would I build my own house? Perhaps this could be a solution to my "No where to stay" problems. So I thought "What if we built a 4-5 room house that would be used specifically for come from aways? What if we charged a price for the stay and the money go back into the town?" And so, the seeds for the 'Ome Social Enterprise were planted...

That initial idea has evolved quite a bit since then, and has grown into a larger community initiative involving a Fire Food and Music Festival called The Gathering which happens every summer in late Aug. We built a community Greenhouse which is currently being reimagined as a green event space.

In the future we want to develop a restaurant, art gallery, boat tours, and expand our current accommodations which we call OmeSweetOme.

'OmeSweetOme luxury "glamping" tents are the first steps toward our long term goal of creating a sustainable micro economy for the towns of Burlington, Middle Arm, and Smith's Harbour. Currently we have nine 'Ome Luxury Tents, One 'Ome Pod, and eventually as we grow we will have more tents, Pods and a central lodge with a restaurant. All places for you to call 'Ome when you visit our beautiful corner of the rock.

'Ome is a social enterprise with all of the profits generated to be repurposed through the company back into the community to help grow our tourism infrastructure. The money you spend while 'Ome, goes back into the town through the social business. So not only do you get to have an authentic cultural experience by immersing yourself in Burlington through our 'Ome project, but your dollars are going towards supporting a larger community initiative. It's a win win for everyone!

Because of you, Ome has been able to hire upwards of eleven local people who may have felt compelled to travel away for work. These incredible members of our 'Ome Team are dedicated to giving you the best experience possible so feel free to leave them a little something extra when you check out. Tips are never expected but are indeed welcome and would go directly into the pockets of our hard working team.

As we are still in the pioneer stage of this project, your feedback is encouraged so we can learn and grow and get better as an 'Ome Team. And if you stay with us now, you can honestly say "I was one of the first people to stay at that amazing place in Burlington back when they were just getting started!

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