Historic, Privately-owned Coastal Homes, Exclusivly Yours
While on the Eco-Culture Experience™ trip you will stay in your own private, fully-outfitted, self-catered coastal homes on an exclusive-use basis. Each of the homes have a contrasting decor that is representative of the differing locations and lifestyles. Consistent quality across all three homes can be found featuring great new beds, quality cotton linens, all in a setting with a clean crisp rustic touch.
Hipditch House in St. John's, while over 100 years old, has been restored to represent the new emerging culture in the city. It is located in the Battery neighbourhood at the base of Signal Hill, just a ten minute walk from downtown. The EJ Sooley House in Heart's Delight has been restored back to it's original 1930's fisherman's cottage style. It is located on Trinity Bay in a small quiet former fishing village. The Thomas Mouland House is located in the Mockbeggar neighbourhood (est 1700's) of Bonavista. It is located in the largest, still operating fishing village on the island, which is home to 3000 persons.
Both Hipditch House and the E.J. Sooley House have been featured in the May 2008 and September 2008 editions of Canadian Home and Country Magazine.
Hipditch House and Hare's Ears Cottage both share the property line with Signal Hill National Park
"... In a way, my staying here undermines Sooley’s master plan. I’m quite comfortable. The house’s decor is blue, white and nautical, and staying here it’s hard not to feel like a spoiled kid in a sailor suit"... Joel Yanofsky writes about his stay at Hipditch HouseRead More
"Inside, the overarching feel of E. J. Sooley House is a warm, cheery port in a storm, a treasure awash in turquoise hues to combat the harsh grey scenery out the windows..." Canadian Home & Country MagazineRead More
