Heart's Delight is a small quiet outport centrally located on the Baccalieu Trail, one of the four eastern Newfoundland tourist driving routes.The house, located on the cliffs of Trinty Bay, is typical of 1930's outport architecture and decor. Nearby are the towns of Heart's Desire and Heart's Content, not far from the town of Cupids. The location is great for short road trips throughout the small coastal villages around Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula. The house is restored to a vintage rustic-luxe finish, with great beds, premium linens and a great ocean views. Tourist Driving Routes: Baccalieu Trail, Cape Shore Trail, Irish Loop.
In the spirit and decor of a genuine outport home, the E.J. Sooley House is a tribute to times gone by. Handmade dressers and washstands, linoleum floor cloths and wooden floors, all original to the house, complement vintage appliances and heritage furnishings. As Canadian Home & Country Magazine so aptly described, "The overarching feel is a warm, cheery port in a storm, a treasure awash in turquoise hues."
"...Hiking trails are recommended. However, with a view from my backyard of the sun setting on Trinity Bay, I opt for relaxing. The quiet can take some getting used to in Heart’s Delight, though the E.J. Sooley House helps with the adjustment. It’s like stepping back to a simpler time. The one-story cottage has been restored so that it looks much like it did when it was built in the 1930s. The outport decor is traditional and functional, complete with a daybed by the oven, handmade dressers and washstands, and dangling light cords..." Joel Yanofsky writes about his stay at the E.J. Sooley House in Heart's Delight.
