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.

Getting around

Burlington is a very small town with no public transit, or taxi's. Bring your own transportation if you can but if not, don't be afraid to ask a local for a ride!

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.

Beautiful location, awesome town. Everyone is so friendly and willing to make your stay comfortable. Our host was wonderful, met us and took us to our tent. Shared information of the surrounding area before letting us settle in. The room itself is upscale camping. The beds are to die for and the view is unreal. Will definitely be back here.

We had a restful 2 night stay in the tent and it was wonderful! The air was chilly, but we were snug and warm in the most comfortable bed on our journey through Newfoundland. Check in and check out were simple. Sam met us and gave a tour. She gave us a map of the local communities and pointed out the local trails, sights, and place we might want to visit. Darren, the builder/maintenance expert, had a heater waiting for us in the tent should we need it. The whole experience was rustic but top notch, from the bedding, to the solar power in the tent, to the composting toilets. The view from the deck of our tent was outstanding and the perfect place to relax and unwind after days of busier touring. We would definitely recommend a stay here.

I can't say enough good things about our stay in the tent at 'Ome Sweet 'Ome. Sam was great! Took her time to explain everything to see and do when we got there and stayed in touch whenever we needed her. The tent was perfect! Everyone should stay here and experience this.

This was the absolute highlight of our two week road trip from Toronto. Sam (the host) was so extremely helpful and provided some great suggestions for local sites to visit and eat. We especially enjoyed the kayaks available on site to borrow! There was a bit of construction on site that we weren't aware of before coming but everyone was so friendly that we enjoyed the company :) Even had a chance to meet Shaun and Shelby! The beds were comfy and we were provided lots of duvets to ensure we were toasty at night. We stayed two nights and will definitely come back for a longer stay!

We had an amazing stay in Burlington at the 'Ome Tent. The bed was very comfortable and the view is stunning. It has a homey, rustic feel and is very quiet. You can hear the sounds of the ocean every evening as you go to sleep and every morning as you wake. Sam was so nice and very welcoming. She explained the in's and out's of the town and all the hiking. We did the Jennings cove hike and sat at the community swimming spot to drink our morning coffee. They have paddle boards and kayaks for your use. Take advantage of these! They have Wifi and TV at 'ome base as well as a selection of board games. You are able to use the kitchen and shower there if need be but there are comfort stations available. The water pressure in those are great! The people of Burlington are SO friendly and welcoming as well. Gord at the gas bar is so interesting to chat with and has a wide selection of fabrics along with other items you may need! We met Shaun shopping at the store while we were there and he was very friendly as well. The owner of S. Lush and sons even put on a fresh pot of coffee for me to have one afternoon. You can get most items you would need in Burlington but your best bet for a one stop shop will be at the store with the Liquor express/convenience in Middle Arm. We will be back and are considering come next year to The Gathering!

This past weekend, I surprised my husband with a trip to "Ome Sweet Ome" and stayed in the Nipper tent. With help from our hostess Sam, we wasted no time enjoying scenic Burlington and surrounding areas. Sam was super helpful, and obviously very passionate about her community and the people in it. We can't wait to visit again, the tent was perfect and the view was amazing. I recommend using Sams knowledge to help plan your trip because without her, we never would have went cod fishing with a local man (who then delivered our fish to a local widow), or visited a waterfall, or known how to find a resettled community that we could explore. She really was there to help us with everything...she even grabbed us a wrench when we needed it for our bbq! Very highly recommend, it was such a unique experience. Perfect for those who prefer "glamping" to camping. :)

We couldn't have had a nicer time in Burlington, nor stayed in a more beautiful place (in Burlington or beyond). Nipper tent was palatial as far as tents go, and I daresay has one of the coziest beds in all of Newfoundland. There was something very special about being welcomed so wholeheartedly into such a small and tight-knit community. Felt like 'ome!

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!
