Where you’ll be

Twillingate, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

The house sits on a fenced lined little property in the quaint town of Durrell; on Twillingate’s South Island. All of our neighbours are wonderful and one of them is a shipyard where you can watch the boats coming and going. One of the most picturesque outports in all of Central Newfoundland.

Famous for it's reputation of being the 'Iceberg Capital of the World'. As early as May these massive ice sculptures literally drift in and around the island. Watch them dodging around the arm from the bedrooms or side bridge.

In town there’s several amazing boats that offer different tours for icebergs and whale watching. Literally just up the street is the Auk Island Winery, which produces award winning berry & ‘berg wines...not too mention it has a great family restaurant!

Be sure to visit the artisan market, gift shops and cafés all within a short drive from the Pumpkin House. Most restaurants are open from May to September. From fine dining to good old fish and chips there’s a menu for everyone.

The local pub & brewery Split Rock, pours a variety of wicked craft beers from their taps. A dinner theatres serves up local music and a darn good meal!

There are also several museums and the Long Point Lighthouse to visit. Learn more about the history of the wooden boat builders of Newfoundland and their museum. For outdoors adventure, we have plenty of well maintained trails...with hikes that loop you through wilderness and ocean shoreline.

Twillingate is about an hour and a half drive to the Fogo Island ferry...making it an enjoyable day trip. Twillingate is also not too far away from the beautiful beaches of Lunsden.
