“Well outfitted cabins in a quiet town”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Well outfitted cabins located in a quaint town, very close to Terra Nova Golf resort. It was wonderful to just sit on the deck of the cabin in this very quiet area surrounded by sounds of various birds and a well established garden of flowers and shrubs.

The cabin #6, was outfitted more than we had anticipated. It had a huge brand new BBQ, cable tv, dvd player with movies provided, lots of kitchen wares, even tin foil and plastic wrap in the cupboards.
It was more than you could ask for when staying at a "cabin".

We have stayed at other cabins in NL that were much more expensive and not as nearly equipped.

On the grounds is a nice fire pit and horseshoe toss as well as a few places to sit under trellises covered in vines of hanging flowers. I was very impressed by size and variety of flowers and clematis growing everywhere. They definitely need some grooming, but the size is what is impressive.

In the general area, it is nice to walk along the old bed of the former train track, now trail, lined with beautiful birch trees. To the south is a cool bridge, which is a great place for photos.

A great get-away for a couple.

Went to Clarenville originally to go Skiing- was a group of us. We all went for the cabins because we could go there and not be bothered by anyone, and it was beautiful. Enjoyed everything about it. Was comfortable, and did not want to leave. Was a real Getaway! ...I suggest if you are looking for a getaway to come here. You will not regret it .

Room Tip: We had number 2 I believe-- it was amazing.

My mom and I were travelling across newfoundland and didnt think we would make it past terra nova till after dark so we called by d bay and the lady was super nice, gave us a code and told us our cabin number. We stayed in one of the newer facilities, it was more like a hotel room type accomodations but with a homey feel. Very comfortable bed, lots of space, and bright during day time but black out curtains for those bright newfie mornings. We packed up and left in the morning without having to wait for someone to check us out, it was very efficient and we enjoyed our stay even though it was very shory :)

My boyfriend and I stayed in cabin # 4 at by d' bay over the Christmas holidays. If you take a look on their website you will see pictures and descriptions of each individual cabin. Cabin 4 was described as the smallest cabin with the least kitchen supplies. When we got there we were pleased to see that the cabin actually had more than enough cooking supplies... there was a mini fridge, toaster over, panini grills, large skillet, frying pan skillet, cutting boards, knives, pans, dishes pots, cups, and BBQ. Pretty much everything you would need to stay a while!

The main floor was a one room with kitchen/ living room. It had a small electric fireplace, TV, small 2 person table and a love seat. Not a whole lot of sitting space but it is only meant for 2 people. On the main level there was a bathroom with 2 person air massage tub. This is the only thing we could say wasn't great- the water was a murky brown color (being from the area I know this is kind of normal for this part of the province! But may surprise some people if you didnt expect it!), as well there isn't enough hot water to fill the tub, it ended up being cold to luke warm so we only used that once. I recommend just sticking to showering if you stay there.

Upstairs was a double bed with foam mattress...very comfortable! The upstairs also had all white wicker furniture, giving it a cute and somewhat antique look. Loved the bedroom!

To enter the cabin you are given a door code, so not a whole lot of dealing with staff for checking in and out, which seemed to make it more private. For being row cabins they were privite and still gave us that "getaway" feel. Cabin 4 was great.... had that old fashioned log cabin look!

would recommend for anyone travelling to the port blandford/ terra nova/ eastport/ glovertown area! great winter rates as well.

Room Tip: go for cabin 4 if you want a small log cabin feel!

We stayed in Cabin 2 and the online pictures are very misleading. It is a two bedroom cabin but there is really only room for 2 people in the main area of the cabin. One very small love seat in the living room and two chairs, one of which you can't sit on because there is a large floor fan hanging over it, the kitchen table had only 2 chairs, etc. The cabin is well stocked with dishes, etc. but it was not very clean. The floor had obviously not been swept when we arrived and I didn't feel comfortable taking my shoes off on the floor. The grout and titling in the bathroom was also dirty and there was hair in the shower from the last guests. The couch cushions were stained and the whole cabin smelled very strongly of moth balls. We had to open all the windows and keep the door open just to be able to breath in the cabin. It even triggered my asthma. The best part of the cabin was the bed, which was very comfortable and the patio. However, the patio was old and some of the boards need to be replaced and there was a large hole cut out over a sewer line that by bf nearly broke his foot in because it had not been covered. The new screen room is nice but there is no light in it so it's not really usable at night. The furniture is also in desperate need of replacing, especially the patio furniture and one of the chairs at the kitchen table. They felt as though they would fall apart at any minute. We were there for three days and not once was the office open. This place was at best okay. There are much nicer places to stay in the area.

Room Tip: We did visit someone in the new "Units". These rooms were beautiful! It was the differen...

This is a great property to stay in with pets. Our dog was welcomed with a dog bed, bowls and bag of various treats! Our stand alone cabin was basic, clean band had everything we needed including a large 2 person jet tub and a gas fireplace. Kitchen was fully equipped. If you're looking for a place to stay with pets or cabins in this area I would recommend.

Although the furniture has seen better days, By d'Bay Cabins has everything you need for cooking, cosy beds and linens, a gas fireplace (very useful in Newfoundland, even during the summer) and some staples for eating and cooking like coffee, sugar, butter, etc. There is also a TV and a collection of DVDs for rainy days and keeping the kids quiet for a while. The owner, Gerry, is very nice but not intrusive at all. We had a very enjoyable time there. The doors have a code that you just enter upon arrival, a feature that we found practical since we arrived late in the evening.
