The Sleeping Moose Cottage

Ocean View, Year-round Comfort

The Sleeping Moose is a housekeeping cottage with a full kitchen, 3-piece bath with shower, two bedrooms (one with queen bed, the other with a unique bunk for three, two in the lower double, and one above in the upper single bed), and living/dining room with comfy sofa, huge sliding glass doors to the private deck and ocean path, and wood stove for cozy nights.

The Sleeping Moose is located on our property, tucked behind the café in a private little corner. There is a nice private walk down to the ocean, leading from the ocean-view deck off the living room.

From your deck, you might see whales and seals, for sure ocean birds—watching the gannets dive is simply stunning—and "our" Bald Eagle, who does a fly-over a couple of times a day. In season (mid-May to mid-July), watch the lobster fishers at work just off shore, so you'll know when to head to the harbour to buy direct from the fishers.

Walk to our pebble beach and enjoy the beautiful view and sometimes-loud silence of the waves hitting the cobbles. In early spring, the silence across the drift ice is unique; can one say "you just have to hear this"?

There are lots of hiking and snowshoeing trails in and outside the National Park, and if you like golf, Highlands Links is a beautiful 25-minute drive away.

We are an all-season accommodation. Start your day watching the sun rise over the ocean; sometimes, you can end it watching the moon do the very same thing. Spend a lazy summer's eve on your private deck watching the stars come out. Light a cosy fire in your wood stove on chilly evenings, or in winter when snow has changed the landscape. On rainy days, enjoy a free movie or a bit of surfing with our free wireless Internet, or join us at our café just up the path, for a chat and a visit with other customers.
