I live on the beautiful St. Mary's Bay here in Newfoundland, Canada in a small fishing outport. There is access to the beach from my house and the sunsets have to be seen to be believed. House is over 80 years old.

The space

The house is a saltbox - built over 80 years ago. Unique wood floors. There is a double bedroom and a single bedroom available. Breakfast is oatmeal, homemade yogurt and homemade jam, farm eggs from up the road and home-made bread or toast. Coffee and tea and juice.

Guest access

You can access the bathroom on the 2nd floor and dining room+ living room. And the front deck to lounge and look at the bay and the spectacular sunsets. Please note kitchen is not accessible.

Interaction with guests

As much or as little as you want.

Other things to note

The old walls are ultra thin so privacy is not optimum.

Mary is friendly and accommodating and cooks a great breakfast, especially her omelette. Location is quiet and scenic but remote from other services, namely restaurants. House is old, rooms are up a narrow stairway. One bathroom is shared with host and up to three guests.

You can't ask for a better host than Mary. Her personality is so warm and inviting. I could sit and chat with her for hours. The breakfast she made was fantastic, especially the homemade Irish bread! Her home is very clean, and the bed was comfy. I would definitely recommend staying here.

I stayed with Mary for only one night, and yet it was a highlight of my trip! She was so friendly and welcoming. We had a great conversation over a delicious breakfast, and she had a beautiful historic home. The room was exactly as described--simple, perfect for a solo traveler. It was useful to have a desk in the room, and Mary also thoughtfully provided ear plugs.

I am mayor of my local town. I am a writer, raconteur, knitter extraordinaire, voracious reader, old movie connoisseur, photographer,. create my own greeting card line, eclectic music buff, activist, entrepreneur and lover of all things Newfoundland. Irish hatched and matched and dispatched to Canada in my youth. Still learning, creating and enthusing. Excellent listener.
I live not for the breaths I take but for the moments that take my breath away. I found many here on this beautiful rock at the edge of the Atlantic ocean.
