There are not many opportunities to stay in a former lighthouse keeper's house, so we enjoyed this opportunity to have a beautiful vantage point on the harbor and ship traffic, the fort opposite and the ocean. Nice kitchen.

This trip was first planned for 2020, but Covid caused us to postpone til 2023. Lighthouse Keepers property was definitely worth the wait. St Johns unpredictable weather and the eerie sound of the foghorn provided a perfect backdrop for a Newfoundland experience. Part of the East Coast trail passes right by the front door, so we met folks from other parts of the world. Very unique spot- perfect for our group of adults!

It was so much fun to stay in this house! We loved the location on this historic site. Stunning views of the harbour and Signal Hill. We watched many whales off the coast in the morning. The house itself was clean and very comfortable and we enjoyed all the local artwork on the walls. Definitely recommend!

Such a quaint cottage, absolutely perfect for our stay. The views are breathtaking and always something to see. Boats, icebergs, whales, the sea. The cottage is perfectly appointed and love all the photos and paintings. Thank you for this opportunity today see St. John’s from your spot.

We loved this unique location - The house was well-equipped and close to the downtown. The East Coast Trail goes right by the property. The fog horn goes off frequently due to the weather, so light sleepers beware.

The home was very lovely however it was foggy every night and the fog horn blew every 20 seconds all night long from the adjacent lighthouse. The owner was very nice and the home was comfortable and had beautiful views when the fog lifted.
