This coastal home was named after its original owner who survived the great Newfoundland Sealing disaster of 1914. The Thomas Mouland House is celebrated for both age and architecture. The home was restored in 2006, and resides in the historic Mockbeggar neighbourhood of Bonavista, the province's largest fishing village still in operation. (pop 3000) It is located on the Discovery Driving Trail, three hours from St. John's. With the exception of a few necessary alterations, the structural integrity has been beautifully preserved. The Thomas Mouland House is a four minute walk from Walkham's Gate Pub & Restaurant, a daily visit and sometimes basecamp for most CapeRace travelers. Featured in Romantics Home magazine.

Bonavista is a truly lovely spot - great hikes... some of the most beautiful places you'll ever walk - good food (and yes you really do need to try the cod), and just about the nicest people you'll meet anywhere. Ken is a great host - easy to find and with a wealth of local insight. If you are planning a visit to the region, you do a lot worse than to stay in one of his delightful places..."

Easily the cleanest place we've ever been in. It felt like home every time we came back at the end of the day after exploring the area. A must is Neal's Yard for coffee (the best) and breakfasts (croque monsieur - YUM). Ken was a pleasure to deal with and very responsive...
