Annie's Landing has a rich heritage. Once a general store, run by Annie Sweetland, it has now been transformed into two beautiful vacation suites. Annie started her business on a shoestring budget, opening with a few boxes of candy bars, but the business quickly grew to eventually sell products the town residents would need every day. If a customer wanted a specific item, she did her best to provide it, always with a smile. Annie's strong sense of customer service lives in our name as we strive to provide the impeccable service that she provided her customers many years ago. Annie was my mom! We are located in beautiful Bonavista, one of the tourism capitals of Newfoundland. Here you can learn about the salt fish trade, and the history of how this industry evolved at The Ryan's Premises, a national historic site. We are approximately 31/2 hours from St. John's International Airport and 21/2 hours from Gander International Airport. The historic town of Trinity is 30-40 minutes away, and Elliston, popular for the special puffin viewing site is about 10 minutes away.
I worked as an LPN for 33 years and retired in September, 2015. My husband worked at the local Fish Plant until he retired 3 years ago. In June, 2014 we finished renovating Annie's Landing 1, and got such a positive response that we decided to open a second suite in May, 2015, Annie's Landing 2. We have enjoyed meeting and becoming friends with so many of our guests. Some have chatted with us for hours and we've even had a few "screeching in" ceremonies. It's fascinating to meet people from all over the world and it amazes me to see the enthusiasm they have for our province and town. They love the stunning beauty, the feeling of relaxation and the friendliness of the locals. And it gives us great pleasure to help them in any way possible to make this trip the best ever! We have also met many of our fellow Newfoundlanders, whom we ordinarily would not have known. We met the grandson of the Newfoundlander who wrote the famous song "Ise the Bye" and through conversation with another guest, discovered we were related. That was awesome! Owning and operating Annie's Landing has been a challenge and a joy! The store was my mom's passion - Annie's Landing is mine!
Annie's Landing is located in a safe and quiet neighbourhood, in the heart of Bonavista, just minutes away from the breathtaking waterfront. We are within walking distance of many historic sites, The Garrick Theatre, and fine dining. A short drive takes you down the Cape, where you can see the beautiful land and seascapes, view the puffins, whales and icebergs and visit The Lighthouse. A little further drive takes you to visit the Dungeon, a collapsed sea cave. Check out the Sealers Memorial and special viewing site for puffins at Elliston ( 10 minute drive). If you're an avid hiker, there are many walking and hiking trails in the area that provide spectacular views and many of them take you through abandoned communities. After a day of sightseeing, relax and unwind with your beverage on the patio overlooking a stream and a beautiful view of the ocean. There's a playground with a tennis and basketball court in full view from the patio (we have raquets and balls available). With so many attractions and stunning picturesque scenery, you won't want to miss this stop while visiting the island. Come and experience True Newfoundland Hospitality at Annie's Landing!
