Babiche Cottage is a welcoming two-bedroom cottage that is pet-friendly. Newly constructed in 2014, it is ideally suited to accommodate 4 people in two bedrooms. There is also a double, pull-out sofa bed in the living room.
Babiche Cottage has an open-plan kitchen/dining/living area and two spacious bedrooms. The cozy master bedroom features one queen bed, while the second bedroom includes a double bed. All linens are provided, with lots of blankets and quilts to keep you warm year-round.
This cottage sports a large fully equipped kitchen area, as well as lots of room around the table so that elbow room is never an issue. We have provided all of the dishes, glassware, utensils, and pots and pans that you will need for cooking or baking, complete with small appliances such as a coffee maker, kettle, toaster, and microwave.
The cozy living room has lots of relaxed seating and offers a full selection of books, board games, music, free WiFi, cable TV and DVD. There is a private telephone line for guest use, and alarm clocks and hair dryers for your convenience.
Laundry facilities are on site (in the office building) with washers, dryer, ironing board, and iron. If you require a baby bathtub, high chair or beach towels, ask any of our friendly staff at the main office and they will be happy to supply these as well. There is a play area on site, with lots of room to run and play. There is also a convenience / craft store located at the main office.
Outside, you will find a covered deck with chairs and rockers, the perfect place to sit and unwind at the end of a day spend exploring. Also equipped with a propane BBQ and a fire pit.
“Babiche”, also spelled “Babbish”, is an historical Newfoundland term of Native American origin denoting leather cut into thin strips to be used as lace or rope. It typically referred to the strips of rawhide, sinew, or gut that were used for sewing, lacing, or fastening, such as in “snowshoes webbed with babiche.” We are open year-round, and if you come back during the winter, you can do some snowshoeing yourself.
