WORK Ochre House provides an exceptional opportunity to work without interruption in a clean, spacious and quiet environment. The main studio area features 600 square feet (55 square metres) of new birch hardwood flooring with a 17 foot (5.2m) ceiling and no posts. For presentation there is capacity for a seated audience of 40-100 depending on performance requirements. An ideal venue for a residency, retreat or workshop – no other facility in the province offers this combination of performance space and accommodation under one roof. PLAY Stroll down to the beach and watch the fishing boats come and go at the busy wharf. See whales and icebergs in season off the breathtakingly rugged coast. Discover the endless web of hiking trails through woods and meadows. Build sand castles at Northern Bay Sands Park. Take a day trip up the coast to see the historic stone walls of Grates Cove. In the evening, sit around the fire and listen to the loons in the distance. Love to entertain? Bring your instruments and enjoy the beautiful acoustics. Love to cook? The large kitchen is stocked with all you need to get you started – condiments, sugar & spice, oil & vinegar, pots and pans. All you need to bring is your favourite food.More
