Cozy vacation home with country character just 25 minutes from the city. Watch whales & icebergs in season from private deck
Newfoundland is an island in the North Atlantic. It has diverse cultural and historic sigificance. The youngest province in Canada, sometimes referred to as "the rock", Newfoundland has breath-taking scenery. Sometimes described as "backward" or "untouched", life in Newfoundland resembles, in some aspects, life of days gone by. Neighbors tend to be friendly and engaging. Some rural communities are old fishing villages and the surviving elders are keen to "spin a yarn".
During the 911 crisis, Newfoundlanders stepped up to the plate and helped those stranded, providing meals, accommodations, and basic supplies. The result, an award-winning play, "Come from away", reflecting on the friendliness of Newfoundlanders.
Currently, we are being reviewed in positive light by Anthony Bordain, chef, in his program "Parts Unknown", who describes Newfoundland as "incredible", where he had "one of the finest meals of North America". Newfoundland is certainly becoming the place to see. Beautiful landscape, friendly people, pleasing cuisine, and cultural uniqueness, why not plan your next vacation to Newfoundland?
