Welcome to Old Foolishness! A lovingly restored turn of the century traditional Newfoundland Saltbox house in the peaceful village of Upper Island Cove, Million Dollar View overlooking Conception Bay, see whales, icebergs, ships passing, all from your private deck , just a 10 minute drive from Bay Roberts and an hour from the St. John’s.

The space
Nestled in the heart of the quiet fishing village of Upper Island Cove is our traditional Newfoundland out port house. Offering views of the ocean from every room, watch the whales breach while enjoying the sun from the beautiful front deck. Our place offers all the peace and charm of a picturesque house and village “around the bay” in Newfoundland, but all the convenience of the close proximity to the provincial capital. Walking distance to the town wharf and stony beach. The Legion across the road welcomes visitors.
Less than 30 minute drive to towns of Bay Roberts, Carbonear, Harbour Grace, Brigus and Cupids. Less than 30 minute drive to one of Newfoundland's best beaches, Salmon Cove beach.

Guest access
We are offering the whole house for your stay and enjoyment.

Other things to note
The third bedroom listed is a separate "bunkie" with two single beds (not bunk beds) and a private bathroom with shower.

I am a father of four with a lovely and supportive partner and we live and work in downtown St. John's.
During your stay
I live and work in St. John's, so I won't be available in person. However, I am available by phone, email or text and can sort out anything that is amiss with the house or amenities through our local contacts and neighbors in Upper Island Cove.
