This outport (rural) home, located an hour outside St. John's, is close to some of North America's oldest communities including Brigus, Cupids, Harbour Grace, and Carbonear. Explore the many walking trails, the beautiful houses in the community, or some of the museums. Have a drink and a nosh at the Newfoundland Distillery, or light up the hibachi grill on the back deck and enjoy the scenery.

The space
Built around 1910, this house is one of the oldest homes in the community. It has been carefully renovated with an eye to retaining its original character and warmth while making it functional with some more contemporary features.

The kitchen has a fridge, stove, oven, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, drip coffee maker, and a toaster.

There is also a Google home mini smart speaker to answer your questions, update you with the news, or serenade you with music.

The first bedroom has a queen-sized futon that can be folded up to make it into a sitting room.

The living room TV is connected to Roku from which you can access Netflix, Spotify, among other Roku channels, although there is no live TV. Both TVs have HDMI cables so that you can use to play media from your computer or laptop.

The washroom (toilet, sink, and shower) is on the ground floor by the back porch. There are two rooms upstairs: a bedroom with a double bed and a bedroom/den with a queen size futon that sleeps two.

The large back deck overlooks Clarke's Mountain and is accented with a gazebo. In the deck box you will find folding chairs and a hibachi grill. There is also a fire pit on the side garden.

If you go left on railbed at the back of the property, it will take you to Clarke's Beach Information Centre (museum) in the old station. (This museum is closed for 2020) A little farther down there is a children's playground and paddling beach at the community park.

This is perfect for a place to relax, or a use as a base camp for day trips from which to explore a beautiful and historic part of our province.

Guest access
Guests have access to the whole house.

Other things to note
The house is next to the old railway bed and is convenient for those who like to ride trikes and quads, or snowmobiles in the winter.
The staircase is on a 45-degree pitch and is 22 inches wide.
In the winter months, the main floors can get quite cold. You will want slippers or some fluffy socks.
As we are doing some exterior renovations, there will likely be a scaffold by the house.
