I think this cottage might have THE best view in Rocky Harbour. Huge patio, great sunsets, unobstructed view of the open ocean, plus a good view of the harbour itself. The cottage is clean, private, and spacious enough for a group of people.
Plenty to do nearby, we climbed Gros Morne Mountain, took a boat tour through Western Brook Pond, and hiked the Tablelands. We recommend all three of those. We wanted to do sea kayaking as well, but unfortunately it was too windy the day we wanted to go.
This cottage was the perfect location for trekking and sight seeing in Gros Morne. The beds were comfortable, the home clean, convenience of a clothes washer and dryer in the basement and the kitchen was stocked with basic spices, oil, tea and coffee.
The "Fresh Seafoods" shop at the bottom of the hill has a wonderful selection of seafood and the ladies there were so helpful on how to cook whatever we bought.
The cottage is right on the ocean so it's rather windy. The locals hang their clothes outside to dry but we had to chase flyaway clothes a few times, ha,ha. When it was really windy, we found it helpful to tuck the deck lawn chairs up against the house between the two big storage boxes. We bought a cooler and left it there for the next guests to use. It also makes a dandy coffee table for the deck.
The power went out four times in the morning during our stay (twice for 4+ hours). Once was scheduled to which the owner kindly gave us the heads up. We made the best of it by cooking breakfast on the BBQ's side burner.
It was so enjoyable having morning coffee on the deck and watching the sunset from our lawn chairs in the evening! The scenery in Gros Morne is ruggedly beautiful and the people are friendly and welcoming - I would go back in a heartbeat!
first rate cottage in amazing position. Close to local shops and restaurants. Ideal for Gros Morne park and all local attractions..Has everything you need.
This was a perfect location overlooking the harbor and lighthouse. Set out at the end of the village, quiet and peaceful. Perfect location and perfect stay.
My family and I, enjoyed very much our stay. The view is spectacular. It's very quiet, relaxing and enjoyable. Close to good restaurant and hike trails.
Talk about location! this place is beautifully located facing the ocean in Rocky Harbor, NL, with a walking trail to a beautiful lookout, Salmon Point walking trail.
We had every kind of weather you could imagine, 1st night we sat outside and had a bonfire. 2nd day was a little rainy but we hiked all day then went to near by Norris Point (8km away) for a music festival in the evening.... that was amazing. Next day we had snow and crazy strong winds but the cabin was spacious enough that we did not feel crowded. We had movies to watch and free internet to keep us entertained until we went back to Norris Point for more festival activities.
The location and the house itself were as superb as expected after checking the ad. What you read in my topic are the only things on the downside. We had to clean almost every item intensely before we could use it. The BBQ didn't light up. Seemed to be out of gas. I would recommend this house anyway of course, since everything else was just great.
