"Sunny yellow, cherry red, turquoise blue—St. Johns’ pop-art-colored houses, collectively known as Jellybean Row, look especially awe-inspiring clustered in the cliffs of this atmosphere-drenched coastal neighborhood just outside downtown..." Condé Nast Traveller, February 2016, profiling the Battery Village, St. John's.
This coastal home on St. John's harbour is the most easterly guest house in North America. It shares the property line with Signal Hill national park and has door-step access to the Signal Hill hiking and walking trails. Nestled in the cliffs of the popular Outer Battery Village, the house is just 30 feet from the ocean and one minute from the park, three minutes from downtown by car and twelve minutes by foot. It has a deck with gas bbq, panoramic views of the harbour & city skyline, and a southern exposure. The Outer Battery is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city and still maintains the look and feel of a small fishing village. Bald Eagles nesting near property. With an independent ground floor studio, it is configured for the multi-generational traveller and great for those who want the option of indepedence from their travelling companions.

"We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Hare’s Ears Cottage! It is a beautifully appointed cottage with such a charming ambience. It has so much natural light and stunning views with the long wall of windows. The beds were super comfortable and the bathrooms were beautiful and clean. We loved this cottage and it’s very unique setting. Watching huge ships up close through the lovely length of windows travel into and out of the harbour through the narrows was amazing. Hiking the Signal Hill Trail which starts steps away from the cottage was great, with its stunning panoramic views of the area. We also hiked some other trails near St. John’s, including the one at Cape Spear early one morning to catch the awesome sunrise. We enjoyed many fantastic meals in St. John’s, and found it very easy to get around. We will forever cherish memories of our stay at Hare’s Ears Cottage and would be thrilled to be able to visit again..."
