The Barn is not your classic big farm barn, this is a Newfoundland barn, enough to keep supplies a cow and hay for the winter. Today it is a liveable breathing space. When the wind blow, it blows a bit, so no surprises. Adventurers will like it!
This shed is about as old and simple as any barn can be. Originally the barn of the house, it has been converted into a liveable space, with some creature comforts - bed, running water, outside washroom, hot plate, sofa, table and mosquito net. This space is more like camping with a solid roof than having a purpose built cabin. So if the wind blows through it do not be surprised, it is fun and comfortable though, but can be cold and hot depending on weather.
Bauline is what is called an "outport". Today we are about 1 hour from St. John's, the original settlement would have have been more than a day's horse ride from there. We are really at the end of the road, from our harbour you can go out to sea, or you go back to where you came from, or you can up into La Manche Park (hiking). Please in our neighborhood, still fish when they can, cut their own wood, some grow food, others go away to work in the oil projects, others are local carpenters. It is a colorful neighborhood.
The barn has running water and rudimentary items for preparing a very basic meal. You will have a bbq available as well as a washer and dryer. Full bathroom is outside of the Barn but very close and it is shared with the Shed.
