Holiday Rental House
The cottage is the perfect base for exploring the entire Avalon Peninsula. We think of it as a home away from home, our guests call it a haven from life's hectic pace. The cottage overlooks the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve and affords extraordinary views, sights and sounds. Witless Bay Ecological Reserve is home to the largest Atlantic Puffin colony in North America and some of the best humpback whale watching anywhere. We also have 2 East Coast Trail Heads and fantastic beaches, one only steps from Birchy Hill. If you can tear yourself away from the comfy deck you will find our cottage has 2 bedrooms (sleeps 3), fully equipped kitchen, washer/ dryer, comfy chairs and sofas, bathroom with a soaker tub under a skylight – everything you need for rest and relaxation.
