Welcome to the warm embrace of the Reuben Crowley House, an authentic traditional Newfoundland Biscuit Box Homestead, built in 1941 on the south side of Western Bay, home to generations and their happy memories. Enjoy the views of the bay and Atlantic Ocean, stroll to the sand and shingle beaches nearby, or adventure out to the Western Bay Boardwalk or the picturesque resettled community of Bradley's Cove.

The space
The low-slope gable roof is endemic to Newfoundland, resembling the shape of a package of "Hard Biscuits", also known as hard bread or hard tack. The house has a washer and dryer, and first-floor half bath, very convenient. A new deep well was drilled in 2019, with a water filter, providing very pleasant drinking water. Three bedrooms, each with a double bed, comfortably accommodate singles, couples, or families. This house is in the process of restoration & rehabilitation after 75 years of occupation by the Crowley family, with many of their furnishings. Please view the photographs. The outbuildings are currently off-limits.

Guest access
Whole house, not outbuildings.

Other things to note
Cell phone service is spotty at best. Most likely network connectivity is at main highway, Noel's Funeral Home or Ronnie Johnson Memorial Center.

We are enthusiastic history fans, and we love being able to share our antique 1780's Colonial home in coastal Maine, and now our Biscuit Box style cabin in Western Bay, Newfoundland, with others who appreciate historic homes. Warren is Music Director at a local UCC/UMC church in Maine, so that is where we are most of the year. We are thrilled to have found the cabin overlooking Western Bay, where most of our neighbors are related to Warren's family and we can hear the surf through our windows.
