Anchor house located in Ship Cove, Port de Grave; where the scenery will take your breath away.

The space
Escape from the everyday and sit oceanside! Whether you are visiting from nearby or coming from away, Anchor House will feel like, your home away from home. Our 2 bedroom bungalow has an uninterrupted view of the ocean and comes with the beds freshly dressed with clean linens, and crisp white towels for bathing.
If this is your first visit to Port de Grave, welcome! There are plenty of reasons to keep you coming back year, after year. Loose yourself in the mesmerizing views of the harbour, watching the boats come and go, the puffins taking perch on rocks or catch a glimpse of the magnificent whales. Anchor House is located within walking distance of the harbour, park your vehicle and explore via foot.
Supermarket, shopping, restaurants and several other amenities are a short 10 minute drive into Bay Roberts. If you choose to eat in, our fully stocked kitchen will put your mind at ease when considering your meals. Enjoy grilling and furnished outdoor dining, on the private back deck in the summer.
Smell the fresh ocean air and feel the sea breeze, as you lounge in one of the Adirondack Chairs. From the front porch or the family room, you will experience the beauty of this great fishing village, either option includes a breathtaking view of Ship Cove.
Spring, summer, fall or winter, there are several reasons to visit all-year-long. Although, some months feel a little more magical, like December. The Annual Boat Lighting of Port de Grave is talked about near and far. People come from all over to see the beauty of the boats dressed up. For the month of December the lights shine from dusk until midnight daily, a definite must see.

Other little extras to note, that are also included: toilet paper, paper towel, cleaning supplies, coffee (pods, instant, and ground coffee), sugar, whitener, and a variety of spices (salt, pepper, pizza seasoning, seasoning salt, thyme, oregano, Italian seasoning, fennel seed, rosemary, dill weed, bay leaves, coriander, basil, marjoram, crushed mint, sea salt, savoury, cilantro, celery salt, and parsley).

Monday is garbage and recycling pick-up. We have provided large clear bags for recycling and black bags for garbage, to separate accordingly. Collect and dispose of all, in the garbage box at the end of the yard, roadside.

The house is heated by baseboard heaters and an electric fireplace. For warm summer days, the house is kept cool by a window air conditioner, fans (both floor and ceiling), and of course the beautiful ocean breeze.

The house is on septic. While using the house be responsible and do not discard any grease or food reminisce into the septic. Allow the grease to harden and dispose of with other household garbage.

While smoking is not permitted inside the house, you will find ashtrays on the front and back patio. Be sure to use them accordingly and refrain from flicking butts around the property.

When it snows, it snows. The main parking area is maintained and plowed. There are shovels and salt onsite to help with additional clearing.
We are pet friendly, please disclose your animal companion when booking (2 dog max.). As you know they are your responsibility. Pick up after your friends. The furniture is not meant for the animals, you will need to take the necessary steps to manage your pets.

Your entire family is welcome, we have noted that the property is suitable for younger children. We have done so keeping in mind that as parents you are responsible for your children. The back of the house is a rock hill. It would not be in anyone's best interest if the children were to explore the hill solely. We have also noted the furniture present in the house, keep in mind we are not equipped with a crib or play pin, should you require one, you will need to include one with your travel luggage.

Respect our neighbours! Regulate unusual noises or noise likely to disturb, residents and guests alike of Port de Grave. No yelling, shouting or the like between 11 pm to 7 am. Keep in mind with no city noise to compete with, the sound will carry greater. Everyone wants to enjoy their getaway!

We want you to be prepared for the house as it is. Knowing that you have reviewed the listing in full will result in the most enjoyable stay. In order to acknowledge you have read everything, when prepared to book please quote the code word "mistletoe" in your initial interaction with us.

Location

Port de Grave, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

Port de Grave harbour is one of a kind. There is a remarkable sense of community. Newfoundlanders are known for being friendly and welcoming. As you adventure around, be sure to say "hi" and prepare yourself for a delightful conversation.
Landmarks to explore around Port de Grave: The Harbour where you can watch the boats, coming or going and anchored into port. In Barneed, watch the Caplin roll (early summer July-August) at Long Beach, or just ask the locals, they can direct you where the activity is current. In Blow me Down, walk or drive and learn the history of "Lovers Leap". In Hibbs Cove, learn the history housed in the Fisherman's Museum. In Ship Cove, where you've settled, is home to the fish plant. Jailhouse Mountain explore by foot what remains and learn about the suggested history in the Fisherman's Museum. Greenpoint Lighthouse a registered heritage site, a must-see. Looking to take home some souvenirs, stop by the Tea Room. I know Port de Grave will keep you busy, but the neighbouring communities of Bay Roberts, North River, Clarke's Beach, South River, Cupids, Brigus, Harbour Grave, Carbonear, St. John's and so many more. Newfoundland has so much to offer! Our advice, if you are visiting for the first time leverage the provinces tourism website.
