Elevated slightly above Sacred Bay, and at the top of Iceberg Alley, my house rests on the best of look outs . Labrador can be seen in the distance, and the view of L'anse aux Meadows, is a straight shot across the water. Icebergs float by, often staying around for several days. morphing, calving, thundering...all depending on the wind, the weather, and the seas.There are more moose than human neighbours, both are equally friendly. The beaches are filled with treasures, with ancient rocks and sea life coming to life in the cool clean waters of the bay, where you can also launch your kayak. They say, and they are right: there is no more beautiful a spot on the Northern Peninsula.
Completed around 2009, this is a very cozy yet sturdy house. It's approximately 24' x 24' with an additional screen porch that overlooks the water. Everything fits perfectly in this room; plentiful large windows (watch whales while washing dishes), Newfoundland spruce floors, uncluttered, simple design, a day bed, IKEA furniture...the stairs lead to an open spacious second floor with even more amazing views, a single as well as a queen bed, 4 drawers, a large desk area...there's a bathroom at the bottom of the stairs, and a closet for everything underneath the stairs...
A perfectly but simply appointed kitchen with all the basics, and a kitchen that has never seen any non-living sentient beings! A fridge with freezer, a small electric 4 burner stove, a long peninsula to work and eat at. Did I mention the windows above the sink...the whales...?
Other things to note

There are ammenities such as gas, a general/convenience store/, a small local cafe, a post office and Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve (for botanists seeking rare plants). St.Anthony, the larger town is about 30K away, and has everything you need, including Tim Hortons :)

Nearly 20 years ago, at my first step off the ferry, and as so many do, I fell in love with Newfoundland. As one who has spent a lifetime being pulled to all places north, a year of searching led me to the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula and Ship Cove. I looked across the bay to see L'anse aux Meadows, and realizing I was also on the Viking Trail, my Scandinavian past life and connections were secured. This was home. The house was designed by my son in law and myself, and built ever so tightly by a local friend. It has captured the attention of every passerby since its inception. I've been coming here, sometimes several times a year, but always every summer. It's the perfect place for me to photograph, practice my music, work on my fibre art, write, and think. My other life is less dramatic but otherwise, not vastly different; I have a small cottage on the marsh in Maine, not far from my children and grandchildren, and where their family has an organic farm and vegan cooking school. It's been said I live a charmed, but simple, life...that is in part evidenced by the houses and places I've chosen, or have chosen me. Newfoundland, and more specifically Ship Cove, couldn't be a more authentic example of this.
