"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.

Fogo Island Inn - Fogo Island

This is a lodge with a soul, filled with the handiwork of the local people: traditional outport furniture, handcrafted quilts, and woven rugs—once-disappearing arts now given new life and purpose.

The Fogo Island Inn is the culmination of a major community revitalization project. The building’s rugged minimalist architecture balances traditional influences with a contemporary sensibility, which architect Todd Saunders has made and built just for Fogo. A cultural destination in its own right where visitors and locals meet, the Inn includes an art gallery, heritage library, cinema and rooftop sauna. Each of the 29 guest rooms is unique, with every detail chosen with purpose and handcrafted by locals.

The Inn is a great feat of contemporary architecture, all stilts, angles, and vertical lines that contrast with the rough slabs of ancient granite that surround it. But as much as it might stand out in its setting, the inn is integrally part of Fogo Island. This is a lodge with a soul, filled with the handiwork of the local people: traditional outport furniture, handcrafted quilts, and woven rugs—once-disappearing arts now given new life and purpose.

 

Zita Cobb, the founder of the Fogo Island Inn, grew up on the island and went on to make her fortune in high-tech communications, has recently been helping locals create a geotourism industry through her foundation, Shorefast. Fogo Island now has an internationally acclaimed artist residency program, a brand new inn and several thriving micro-businesses. Local entrepreneurs are doing everything from cultivating organic crops on the edge of the Atlantic to selling patchwork quilts to taking visitors out cod jigging.

 

 

Seafair Cottage

SEAFAIR... Our newest and best property...

The Adam Mouland House was built in 1913 in Mockbeggar, the oldest district of Bonavista. The house is a two-and-a-half-storeyed, steep, gabled-roof structure. It is a fine example of nineteenth and early twentieth-century architecture in the Bonavista area.  The simple, yet decorative window and door trim reflect the builder’s expressive style and craftsmanship and local carpenters recreated the exact specification when restoring the windows. Historically, this property is important because it is representative of an era when the people of Bonavista relied heavily on the inshore fishery for survival. At the time when this house was constructed it was common for residents to have a number of fishery-related outbuildings on their property.
