Discover Luxury In The Wild
Nestled in woodland above the village of Open Hall in Eastern Newfoundland, Eagles Cliffe Cottages provide luxury accommodations with a breathtaking view of the islands and waters of Bonavista Bay. Lovingly built by local craftsmen, each 4 star cottage has a cathedral ceiling and a stunning open plan kitchen, dinning and living room. The impressive floor to ceiling windows allow you to take in the views while light floods into every room. Open Hall offers all the quiet of rural Newfoundland, within an easy 3.5 hr drive from St John’s.
Known for their outstanding hospitality and coastal scenery of outport Newfoundland, Eagles Cliffe Cottages is excited to expand its wheelhouse by offering two new unique experiences. If you’re a hiking enthusiast, you’ll want to check out the brand new 2.5km Grand Seduction StoneHaven Hike atop the seaside cliffs of historic Tickle Cove, Bonavista Bay. Discover the The Arch Hole and Walker’s Trail around Tickle Cove – the actual setting for the blockbuster film The Grand Seduction starring Brendan Gleeson, Taylor Kitsch and Gordon Pinsent. Along the way, have a try at cricket on the very pitch from the film, learn about Tickle Cove’s folklore and history from local guides and make sure to keep an eye out for whales, eagles, caribou and seabirds! The 2.5 hike is suitable for most ages and fitness levels and promises to be an entertaining blend of local folklore, geology, wildlife and local history.
"Glamping" or luxury camping, is an experience that Eagles Cliffe Cottages hope will open the door to a new world of luxury outdoor accommodations. StoneHaven will consist of a 2-storey inn: the ground floor will house bistro-style food and barista coffee, a gift shop and small reception area, upstairs there will be 3 bedrooms, each with private walk-out verandas for a sensational view (coming in 2016), and there will be a large central space on the second floor for training, workshops, meetings and small events. Now for the luxury! There will be 5 geodesic domes on their own private deck nestled in the woodland below the teashop, facing the ocean. The domes will look like half golf balls, with the front third made up of windows so you can watch the sunset from your bed. Each dome will have their own ensuite bathroom, indoor wood burning stove & electric heat, and a deck equipped with chairs, a bbq and binoculars. You cannot see the domes from the inn or hiking trail; it will be entirely, exclusively, your view.
The Grand Seduction StoneHaven Hikes are running now - Tuesday through Saturday at 10:00am - the hikes fill up fast at a maximum of 12 hikers per group, so click here to book in advance! They welcome well behaved dogs (on a leash!) and even offer complimentary snacks, bottled water & hot drinks - just come prepared for breathtaking vistas, outstanding geology and a wealth of history! StoneHaven will be ready to explore next summer. Keep an eye on their website for updates: with all the luxury of a 4 star bedroom in the privacy and natural setting of the wild, we expect the glamping domes to book fast!
