Overview

Bonne Bay Big Pond House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

In the middle of Gros-Morne National Park, designated as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, sits the quaint village of Rocky Harbour.

The village is an enclave within Gros Morne National Park, and thus residents and tourists alike are close to hiking trails with spectacular views, boat tours, heated indoor swimming pool with hot tub and cross-county ski trails in season.

Our house sits on the south shore of Rocky Harbour. It has its own beach and wharf. Rocky Harbour is a working fishing harbour so expect to see fishermen heading out towards the lighthouse in the early hours of morning and returning laden down with catches from mid-morning onwards. Our wharf and beach gather the flotsam and jetsam of a fishing port. Although care should be taken when playing in this area, great fun can be had exploring the beach fossicking treasures washed in by the sea.

The rental property is a modern and spacious (1400 sq. ft., or 130 sq. meters) house on the water front. The covered veranda/deck is an ideal spot to sit with an early morning cup of coffee or tea to read a book or just enjoy the solitude of the breaking day. During spring, summer and fall it is ideal for eating outdoors, watching the sun dip on the horizon.

Be it in winter (typically milder than on the continent due to maritime climate) or in summer (fresher, for the same reason), the area offers multiple opportunities for outdoor activities. Swimming is reserved for the strong-willed souls (water temperatures range from 12 to 16C degrees in summer and from 0 to 5C degrees in winter).

The main bedroom offers glimpses of Gros Morne from the bedroom window, which reveals the ever-changing colours and character of this impressive landform. The room is tastefully furnished with Queen-sized bed and bedside tables, quality bed linens and has its own walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom.

Great location (walking distance to town, quiet, on water), all the conveniences of home (washer and dryer is great to have), owners and caretakers are pleasant and easy to deal with. Thank you!

Excellent family vacation location.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Jolly Moose very recently for four nights. During our tour of the northern peninsula we had stayed in nice hotels but were grateful to have the space, cooking/laundry facilities and dvd collection at our disposal. Its a great location to stay and see the park. Tom and Edna were very accommodating and we didn't want for anything. The residence was perfect for our family of four. Other than the Dinner Theatre, we ate all of our meals at the house overlooking the water, including our own catches, the local Fish Market and take-out from Earles and Jackies restaurants. The Cow Head Dinner Theatre and numerous hiking and fishing opportunities are a must. One tip..if going to the Ocean View to see the local music, please go early and make appropriate inquiries, we couldn't get in at 8:30 at night as it was already full. Thanks Marcel for making our dream trip to Newfoundland so memorable.

My friend and I stayed at the Jolly Moose for a week and couldn't have been happier. First of all, Rocky Harbour couldn't be a more convenient base for all of one's Gros Morne forays. And the house itself is comfortable, with a lovely porch looking out over the bay. The perfect place to catch gorgeous sunsets. The owner is quick to respond to any questions. Word of advice: Although we loved our visit and saw quite a lot, we went a little too early in the season. The famed boat trip in the fjord was not yet operating and a few of the hikes were still impassable due to snow. So I'd suggest early June through September (a local told me that September is an ideal time to visit; it's post tourist season but everything is still accessible).

Had a wonderful time at the Jolly Moose in Rocky Harbour . Stayed 4 nights and could have stayed forever . Overly comfortable accommodations ....all the amenities you would ever need and amazing view and beach . Close to everything ....yet quiet and private . Loved to sit on the back porch looking out over the water and dream . Lots to do in Rocky Harbour . Took both boat tours ...one into the fjords and then the Bonne Bay . Both were fabulous . Took in a Kitchen Party at the local hotel which was great fun and lots of laughs . Went to the Dinner Theatre by shuttle to see the SS Ethie . Loved it and the best cod dinner anywhere .All were highlights of our trip and the Jolly Moose was the best of accommodations . Recommend it highly for anyone and everyone .

ideal house for families, anyone wanting a house while visiting Gros Morne

  • 5 of 5
The house backs up to the harbour, has it's own dock that's perfect for fishing. Waterfront was wonderful for my children to catch crabs, fish, look for shells, etc. House has all the amenities, made cooking easy. Very comfortable, great dvd and book collection. Best place to stay if you're looking for more than a cabin or motel in Gros Morne!

Excellent Accommodations..Already Missing Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
Already Missing Our Home Away From Home..Excellent Accommodations ..The House is beautiful, spacious, very clean and well furnished. The Beds are extremely comfortable. The Kitchen is well stocked with kitchen supplies, dishes, silverware and pots and pans. Excellent touches included : Satellite TV, Computer, DVD Player with lots of movies, Dishwasher, Washer and Dryer ,Jacuzzi /Shower in Main bathroom, with ½ bath off Master bedroom. The view of Rocky Harbour and the ocean from the deck is amazing. We loved having our own private beach to walk on and explore.
Tom and Edna who care for the house for Marcel and Ruth were very, very friendly and helpful. Tom met us at the entrance to Rocky Harbour to escort us to the House. They left us their phone number in case we needed anything during our stay.
Marcel and Ruth, the owners of this Rental Property are exceptional. They are available anytime via email or telephone.
We would highly recommend this house if you are visiting Rocky Harbour . It is much more private than a cottage or hotel room. We do not think you will find a nicer place to stay in Rocky Harbour.
We Will definitely stay here again..Thank you Marcel and Ruth for the opportunity to stay at your House..
