Newfoundland Vacation Home
Yes, you read it correctly! $48 500! One of the last affordable vacation spots in Canada, if not North America!
Situated in the historic town centre of Rose Blanche, Newfoundland our charming 1700 sq ft., two storey ocean front vacation home offers beautiful views of the Atlantic and a scenic bay that leads to a spectacular waterfall. Once owned by a local merchant this home has been used as a seasonal nirvana for over 16 years. Opportunities exist to watch moose, ducks, the elusive grey fox, mink, black bears and small fishing boats as well as large international sailing boats that pass through our waters. There are hiking trails within the town and out to the historic Rose Blanche lighthouse only minutes away. There are also multiple trails along the route from the ferry. Kayak, sail, sea doo, fish, paddle board in summer and ski doo, hunt, ice fish, cross country ski in winter. This is an all season vacation home all ready to go!
The property is situated at the east end of highway 470, 35 minutes from the Port Aux Basques ferry from North Sydney, Nova Scotia and 3 hours from the international airport at Deer Lake. It is the last outpost east that can be reached by road on the southwestern coast. Roads to the outports in many parts of Newfoundland were built around 1967. Most villages were only accessible by boat, this is the reason some of our homes seem to be below grade. What was once a walking path among homes had to become a roadway to accommodate the popularity of the automobile.
Our home is only 2 hours from Cornerbrook and 3 hours from the UNESCO site of Gros Morne National Park-a diversely scenic park with countless breath-taking trails and sites. Our vacation home is perfectly situated for quiet pleasures or for day trips to all of of the experiences and adventures that this corner of the island has to offer. One visitor called this area “a hidden treasure…a carefully guarded secret”. However, in the past couple of years, the secret is out!
Countless mainland people (CFAs-Come From Aways), have been buying up these low priced homes before the prices rise. With global warming and soaring prices for vacation homes in other areas, this may be the last place to purchase your dream seasonal home before it is too late. FOMO - fear of missing out is real. It is predicted that homes in this area will rise by more than 50% in the next year or two because of its affordability! In the last two years, the three towns of Rose Blanche, Harbour Le Cou and Diamond Cove, usually a population of 500, grows by 50% in the summer months, with sales of 30 homes in the past couple of years to CFAs…families from such places as Ontario, New Brunswick, Maine, Quebec, Vermont, and even British Columbia have heard about all what this area has to offer and have purchased these affordable homes! At these prices, it doesn’t matter if you can only come for two weeks!!!
The home itself is fully furnished- another bonus. There is absolutely nothing else to do but come and enjoy the amazing, fresh salt air, eat freshly caught fish, visit with the witty locals and decide what your next adventures will be. Cook up some freshly caught lobster or fish in the fully stocked kitchen, enjoy eating in the large dining room while overlooking the ocean through the seven foot viewing window, or cuddle up with your favourite novel in the spacious living room. In the kitchen there is a fridge, stove, microwave, small appliances and all of the cooking and eating utensils you need. A washer, dryer and chest freezer are also included.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a 4 piece bath. There are 2 double beds and a room with twin beds. All linens are provided, with 2 sets of sheets each.
The home has been kept as authentic as possible to honour its Newfie roots…a true maritime experience!
Don’t let this one pass you by. This home is the only one with this spectacular view of the ocean, sitting high atop a little hill overlooking the most scenic panorama in the area.
