The property is located near the ocean, where, in the months when the icebergs pass along you can stand within a few hundred feet and enjoy the cool breezes and experience the foundering. In the winter months there are lovely trails to snowshoe.
I'm a weaver, spinner, knitter, rug-hooker, excellent cook, and love to wander the trails and beaches on this peninsula.
We have 5 beautiful hiking trails that go along the oceanside, the high lookout over the Atlantic Ocean, through the barrens, and even up to the high hills you come through to first see the panoramic views. In the spring there are often icebergs up close, as this location is in 'Iceberg Alley' and there is often a parade of them in the distance. We are fortunate to have the Outport Museum and Tea Room open from June to September where guests can dine on Traditional Newfoundland Cuisine, experience a glimpse into the outport life and hear tales of what people did here in the olden days. This was a French fishing outport in English territory since 1500 up to 1904 so there is a lot of interesting culture and stories abound. Also the owners of the museum are wonderful talented musicians and when they can, and have the energy to, they will play music with the guests, sing traditional songs and share stories. Usually on Saturday nights, but sometimes more often than that! There are interesting seabirds, humpback whales, minke whales, caplin spawning in the rolling surf (a sight to see!) all within view of the Basques Lookout, which is about a 10 minute hike from the house.
