Our home is a two and half story 2nd Empire merchant style home with mansard roof and typical decorative elements. The Lighthouse offers upgraded accommodations with queen bed, private en-suite, cable TV, WiFi and A/C. Breakfast is included with this room rental.

While staying with us you will be visiting the Baccalieu Trail and can only be described as historic, full of culture, many fascinating museums, trails, music, art, scenery, wildlife, quaint villages and great food. A two day stay is ideal for the Baccalieu Trail! Brigus (home of Captain Bob Bartlett and his home Hawthorne Cottage), Cupids (the oldest English settlement in North America at 410 years), Bay De Grave with rolling hills, marinas, salt box houses scattered through the villages and Hibbs cove with the fisherman's museum, Porter House Museum and the old school house is simply fascinating. Keep moving to the Bay Roberts Shoreline Walk where the rock walls and root cellars remind you of the people that lived there in (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)'s until ravished with war and forced to relocate. Spanish fisherman frequented our area and so goes the name Spaniards Bay and The Spaniards Room. We are home to 565 million year old fossils, the United Church Museum, Lassy wall and even where you stay, our home, is a preserved heritage building. Amelia flew across the Atlantic from the green meadow airstrip by Lady Lake in Harbour Grace and the Kyle sits in the harbour on a shoal to remind us of the old vessels that sailed our waters. Bristol's Hope and Carbonear spill over in tales and history about Princess Sheila Nageira and the infamous Pirate Peter Easton. You have driven no more than 15 - 20 min in any direction yet. Up the coast you go to many villages along the best coastal drive in Newfoundland with icebergs, whales, colourful houses, beautiful landscape, ocean views around every turn, museums, craft shops and many many smiles! Bay de Verde, Grates Cove, Old Perlican, Winterton, Hearts Content, Dildo and the list goes on, are all places you must visit to experience the true Newfoundland. The historic Cable Station, where they layed down the transatlantic cable in 1865 that stretched to our friends in Ireland, is a real treasure. The Wooden Boat Building museum is a favourite and educates visitors from all over the world in the craft of wooden boat building back to the time of the birch bark canoe. Food, Food, Food! Besides our own full cooked breakfast and in house dining there are restaurants and unique dining experiences everywhere; if you like seafood lets just say you are visiting the fishing capital of Newfoundland. We also have grocery stores, malls, Walmart, Canadian Tire, drug stores, Hospitals, medical clinics, dinner theatre and, well, everything you need a short drive away. The Baccalieu Trail is the perfect blend of new meets old. It is history, it is beauty, it is everything you can imagine when planning your trip to our lovely island and we are here to help you plan every step of the way. Did I mention us? The Newfoundlanders with our unique dialect, sense of humor a very intelligent way of life.

What a great place to stay ! Beautiful and comfortable. Greg and Lorraine and amazing hosts, so accommodating and flexible. They taught us a lot about the area which helped with our trip. If they have their lobster or crab dinner available when you visit, definitely have it, cooked perfectly and delicious !

What a wonderful experience. Greg and Lorraine made sure we had everything my cousin and I needed. They provided recommendations and really good instructions on what to see, here to go and what to do. They were friendly and willing to share the knowledge of the area. The house itself is a heritage home with so many delightful features that goes along with a home that has been around a while.

The location is great, a bit of road traffic noise, but not bad. the room was furnished nicely and the bed and linens were soft and heavenly! We only met Lorraine briefly but that was nice. She and Greg did a nice breakfast. I would recommend this place to friends and relatives and would stay here again.

Greg and Lorraine's heritage home was a delight to stay in. We loved our accommodation and it met our needs perfectly. Greg and Lorraine were very warm and hospitable hosts. They were very knowledgeable about the area and gave us some fantastic tips about our NL trip. We enjoyed some great conversations and had a fantastic breakfast cooked by Greg before we departed. Would definitely stay again should we visit NL again. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to to spend time in Spaniard's Bay or exploring Avalon peninsula.
