Fermeuse House Rental Photos and Description

Total relaxation in quiet ocean front setting. Lots of parking. 1600 sq ft home

Our efficiency home was built in 1869 by Mr. Patrick Walsh, orginally from Port Kerwin. Patrick passed away in 1932 and James, his son, became owner. It continued to be passed down in the Walsh family, and was purchased by Patricks Great, Great, Great grandsons and restoration began in the spring of 2010.

We restored the house as close as possible to its original layout, but also added modern comforts and some openess, to take advantage of the wonderful view of Fermeuse harbour.

Three bedrooms can sleep six, and a Futon downstairs can sleep two.

Located on the Fermeuse Harbour, sit on the deck and enjoy the ocean. Not far from entrance to East Coast Trail. Only need to bring food, as it is ready to live in.

Guestbook comments from the manager

3 couples, mostly seniors, in fact one gentleman was 93, stayed at this premise in early August 2012. We had a wonderful time. The property was everything that was advertised and more. The keepers of the property were close by and were very helpful in making our stay enjoyable. Every year we stay at a different location and this was one of our most memorable stays. The location is quiet, the amenities excellent and the deck makes a lovely retreat on a warm, fine evening. If the moon is out it is a bonus. We would certainly recommend this property.

Fermeuse Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice vacation rental. Interior was very modern and convenient. Bedrooms and bathroom were very clean and spacious. Fermeuse wharf was with in walking distance and in typical NF hospitality one of the locals provided us with a free fresh catch of cod for dinner. Deck overlooked the water which provided entertainment watching the local boat activity. Fermeuse is only a short drive from Argentia which let us settle in and get prepared for the rest of our adventure around NF. Lucy the owner was very friendly and accommodating. I would recommend this vacation rental to anyone.

comfortable, spacious, great location

  • 5 of 5

Maggie by the sea is a gem! The home was clean, comfortable, spacious, and in a great location. It had everything we needed for a family of 5 - laundry facilities, lots of sleeping space, a beautiful view of the harbour, an outdoor deck and fire pit, and a well equipped kitchen. We were able to see many wonderful sites within a close distance, and return to our vacation home to rest up for our next adventure. We loved visiting nearby Ferryland to view the whales, hike and enjoy a delicious picnic at the Lighthouse. Another highlight for us was St.Vincent's beach, where we were able to watch the whales feeding, as well as our visits to the many coves and harbours along the Irish Loop. Lucy and her husband were so very kind and welcoming. We would highly recommend this property!

A WONDERFUL place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your home. Very comfortable, clean & updated. So nice to be able to have the freedom of having a space just like home instead of using cramped hotel rooms. Very affordable and within 15 minute drive to most attractions for us. Loved the sea kayaking in Cape Broyle & Zodiak in Ferryland. Thank you for having this available to us.

A real gem!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a friend spent a night there and had a fantastic time. Lucy was very welcoming, the house was immaculate and the property gorgeous. Unfortunately we were there during a blizzard, so we didn't get to explore the yard as we would have liked or enjoy the view of the ocean from the deck. We'll definitely be back this summer though!
