Cape Race, Powles Head, & Cape Pine Lighthouse Deluxe Suites
When you think of the east coast, the lighthouse is one of the quintessential images that comes to mind. So if you love lighthouses you have come to the right spot. We have three for you, and all within an hours drive of each other. Lighthouses have played pivotal roles in keeping those that sail the sea’s safe by calling them home for many a year in these parts so it was decided to dedicate our new suites to all three of our local lighthouses.
This season, under the direction of John Devereaux, our local carpenters have been working hard to create three mini oasis’s for our guests to enjoy when they stay with us. Completion of the suites is only a couple of weeks away but in the meantime here are a few sneak peaks.
Cape Race lighthouse is a 30 minute drive from the community of Portugal Cove South. Located on a maintained gravel road, the staggering cliffs and the imposing lighthouse will greet you when you arrive. This is the site of the last wireless transmission to the Titanic, which sunk off the coast of Newfoundland, 105 years ago. There is a museum that has, amongst other things, the replica of the wireless device that received the first and the last words from the sinking Titanic. On site there is a guide to answer any of your questions (in season June to September). Fees do apply to enter the museum. New this season we have added an experience around this lighthouse and its connection to the Titanic.
This suite has character features like exposed brick, pine ceilings, walk in shower with a large shower head, plank flooring, and a little dining nook. You will find a king size bed to welcome you after all your adventures.
Powles Head Lighthouse is Trepassey’s own beacon of light. Traveling over the lower coast road and down through barren land, you will arrive to the beautiful vista of Trepassey on one side and the wide open Atlantic on the other. Keep your eye’s open on the horizon for some of the ghosts ships rumored to have been seen off the shores of our town. Want to learn more about this? Take our ghost and fairy tour; if you dare!
Our Powles head suite boasts an ocean view, exposed brick, nook area, walk-in shower, large desk, and a king size bed.
The Cape Pine Lighthouse is the last gem in the tri factor lighthouses in our area and it can be found in St. Shott’s. In 1974 it became a National Historical site. It was the first landfall lighthouse built on the dangerous south coast of Newfoundland’s Avalon Peninsula to guide shipping through the Cabot Strait to the St. Lawrence River.
Last but not least is our Cape Pine suite. With special built in features like exposed beams over the large soaker tub, walk in shower with over sized shower head, ocean views, and a king size bed, you may never want to leave!
All of our suites have added amenities including flat screen TV, WIFI, Indigena foot soaks, soap, shampoo, hairdryer, and local artwork. Hospitality is free of charge.
