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.

Wonderful experience and one that we might repeat in a few days with another stay. We felt like friends of the family that were welcomed into their 'Ome. Sam gave us all the information we needed - and much more. Gave us great suggestions for places to eat, visit, to find stuff that we needed. These caused us to meet many locals who were charming, helpful and generous with their hospitality. They made us feel at home and not like awkward tourists. We were even lucky enough to meet the couple at the Grab 'n Go in nearby Smith's Harbour who let us order a breakfast to be picked up the next morning, even though they didn't open until later on. Very, very generous and accommodating. The tent that we stayed in - the Eagle - had two queen size beds, great drive up location (I hurt myself and was hobbled so appreciated this), but had the amazing spot right on the water. Great fire pit and kerosene heater to take the chill off inside the tent on a late September evening. Toilet nearby, chairs, picnic table, flashlights and electric lighting: what more did we need or want? Nothing.

We loved our stay at 'Ome! We weren't able to arrive until the evening, but Sam was there to share information about the area, answer any questions, and lead us to our tent. She made the experience extra delightful with her friendly, helpful attitude and knowledge of the nearby towns. The tent itself was just as nice as we had pictured it, it was well decorated with a nice comfy bed, felt secluded, and overlooked the water. I might suggest heating up the tent and folding down the comforter before you go to sleep, being so close to outdoors can cause a bit of a damp chill, but the heater does a decent job of keeping things cozy. The ground was quite wet around the tent (as expected) so make sure you have appropriate footwear :) Thanks for a great stay, hope to come back one day!

Such a cozy place and an amazing view to wake up to. We had fun exploring the town - Sam was very helpful with recommendations of places to eat, trails, etc.

Shaun's places are amazing! The views are great and everyone in Burlington is so nice and helpful. I stayed on my own and felt totally safe. I would recommend hiking up chips hill! An easy two hour hike with an amazing 360 view of ocean and camp grounds below

Our stay at the "Rabbit" was amazing .! Sam was very nice and a great for giving us information about the idea for anything we might need and desire to do. A very nice spot to relax and get away from an everyday busy life,and to enjoy mother nature. Loved our stay of 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer.Really thinking about a return trip sometime, maybe try another tent at a different location.

I am so happy I found Ome! I like staying in unique places, but when I was planning my Newfoundland trip, there didn't seem to be much of anything interesting - let alone unique - between Gander and Deer Lake. I gave Airbnb a shot and stumbled upon Ome. Sam was fantastic to book with, and with reservation in hand, I was set. When you leave the Trans Canada Highway, you're still about 45 minutes from Burlington. 45 minutes of basically nothing. But that was ok - I was gassed up, had provisions, a good book and was ready for a night on my own. So I was pleasantly surprised to find the communities at the end of the road had 2 cafes, a food truck, gas and stores. You're not alone there. But you ARE a world away from things, in a good way. Sam took to me to my tent and showed me around. The bed was fantastic - the most comfortable sleep of my trip. The toilet was nearby and clean. And the view - pretty incredible to wake up to. Next time I'm not going to spend just one night. Sam showed me a whole bunch of hikes in the area and mentioned kayaking and other water activities. She was friendly and super helpful, showing me around the site and telling me about the area. I hadn't heard of Shaun Majumder before planning this stay, but I think what he's created is great and look forward to watching it evolve and to bringing friends back to see it.

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!
