Breakwater Cottage is a charming and exquisitely appointed 19th century fisherman's cottage perched on the side of Big Hill in the historic fishing village of Petty Harbour - 15 minutes from downtown St. John's. A March 2014 Canadian Press article said this of Petty Harbour, " of downtown St. John's, it's one of the most photogenic seaside towns in the province." Blessed with spectacular panoramic views of the harbor, surrounding hills and Motion Bay, you can watch passing fishing boats, crashing waves and occasional whales, otters, bald eagles and icebergs from the 500 square foot wrap around deck. The beautifully landscaped grounds feature an array of perennials and stone walls and are regularly visited by birds and butterflies. The cottage and neighborhood are recognized for their beauty and have appeared in television commercials (NL Tourism -2011, Rogers Communications -2010), television programs (Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations - 2018), Hollywood films (Rare Birds – 2001, Orca – 1977) and a 2005 Explore magazine article on the East Coast Trail that is only steps away. There was also a feature article on the cottage in the Summer 2018 issue of local publication Home and Cabin Magazine (Google home and cabin plus charming old house in Petty Harbour to see it).

A great base for visits to St. John's and surrounding area, Petty Harbour itself offers activities such as zip lining with North Atlantic Zip Lines, whale watching with Ocean Quest, fabulous meals at Chafe's Landing Restaurant, coffee at the Watershed Cafe, craft shopping at Herbie's Old Shoppe, the Petty Harbour Mini Aquarium and the Island Rooms/Fishing for Success. The cottage is fully equipped and perfect for small families/groups, couples or professionals coming to St. John's on shorter term work contracts or for conferences. Come stay at Breakwater Cottage for your next visit to St. John's. You'll be right next door, but a world away...
