About this listing

Built in 1890, the house is fully furnished and sits on the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. The home is a step back in time with all the modern conveniences of today. All you need to bring are your groceries. Enjoy!

The Space

The Lark Harbour house was built in 1890 by Sam Sheppard, a young fisherman who had moved here from Spaniard's Bay, a fishing village on the east coast of the province. Typical of other fishing houses of the time, the two story, two bedroom home is constructed of local pine, some planks 12 to 18 inches wide. Sam had hand planed many of the beams in the house, and nailed the home together with square nails or homemade wooden dowels. The Lark Harbour house, the oldest standing home in the Bay of Islands, is a peek into Newfoundland's history.

Guest Access

The house is fully furnished. In the living room you will find a sofa bed, a rocking chair and a lovely high backed seat. Sit in the rocker and watch the fishermen go off for their morning catch and maybe see a whale chasing a pod of porpoises. Appliances are brand new and the kitchen is fully stocked - all you need to bring are your groceries, which you can pick up on your way out from Corner Brook or at the local grocery/ liquor/ gas station two minutes from the house.

Interaction with Guests

I try to stay out of my guests' way. My philosophy is that they have come to enjoy the house, not socialize with me. That being said, if anything needs attending to, I am there immediately.

Getting Around

Lark Harbour is a gorgeous town to walk around in, both along its streets and in one of its many breathtaking hikes.

Other Things to Note

My policy is 50% down upon booking, with the final 50% due one month prior to arrival.

About Helen
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
