About this listing

The Barn is not your classic big farm barn, this is a Newfoundland barn, enough to keep supplies a cow and hay for the winter. Today it is a liveable breathing space. When the wind blow, it blows a bit, so no surprises. Adventurers will like it!

The space

This shed is about as old and simple as any barn can be. Originally the barn of the house, it has been converted into a livable space, with some creature comforts - heater, bed, running water, outside washroom, hot plate, sofa, table and mosquito net. This space is more like camping with a solid roof, than having a purpose built cabin. So if the wind blows through it do not be surprised, it is fun and comfortable though, but can be cold and hot depending on weather.

The barn has running water and rudimentary items for preparing a meal, we have coffee, tea, sugar, noodles and other basic kitchen items in the kitchen. A full washroom is located in the back of the adjacent Cabin. BBQ is accessible anytime - supplied with coals and started fluid.

We interact with our guests only as much as they like. If we are around then we do the meet and greet on arrival, and we are around the compound a lot working on things.

Bauline is what is called an "outport". Today we are about 1 hour from St. John's, the original settlement would have have been more than a day's horse ride from there. We are really at the end of the road, from our harbour you can go out to sea, or you go back to where you came from, or you can up into La Manche Park (hiking). Please in our neighborhood, still fish when they can, cut their own wood, some grow food, others go away to work in the oil projects, others are local carpenters. It is a colorful neighborhood.

There is no public transport available. We can help if the circumstances are dire. Car rental is limited and expensive in Newfoundland so be ready for that. We do have one shoresman who drives up and down the shore once a day and can give lifts, but your day has be planned around his schedule.

There is really no food shopping around here. The closest convenience store is 7 km, down the road and the closest supermarket is 20 km down the road, and the closest REAL market is about 35 km. All that is outlined in a package we send you before you come.

Guest access

You will have a bbq, picnic tables, available as well as a washer and dryer. Full bathroom is outside of the Barn but very close and it is shared with the Shed.

Interaction with guests

If we are around we will greet the guests, and if they chose to have meals with us, we offer that. We are certainly nice to people - usually.

George and Chabela are great. They are so friendly, politely and they welcomed me warmly. The cabines are beautiful with a nice view on the lake. I would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at George and Chabela's barn. They have a fun collection of different kinds of accommodations, and the place has great personality. The barn had all the amenities we needed, the wifi was great, and the shower nice and hot. We also appreciated the comfortable bed and quiet location. The hosts met us with fresh picked berries and muffins in our room. George showed us around and had plenty of info about things to do in the surrounding area. We stayed for two nights and would recommend a stay the barn. Very charming spot.

This was my first time visiting George and Chabela's place but it definitely will not be my last. Such a beautiful spot and they were the nicest hosts. I would recommend this place to anybody.

George and Chabela greeted me and my gf when we arrived and showed us around. The view and the proximity to some hiking trails were ideal. It's a great location to be out in nature while still having some amenities of modern life. My gf said she wished we could spend two or three more days there, but alas, our plans had us moving along after only one night. When we left, Chabela gave us some blueberries she had picked from their backyard, which was very sweet of her. If the description in their profile sounds like your kind of place, I'd highly recommend George and Chabela's place and the barn, specifically.

This rustic accommodation is a mix of vibrant colour and peaceful serenity of the east coast. We arrived at night and woke up to a view of nature and the area that was awe inspiring. I preferred the outdoor shower to the bathroom for the full experience surrounded by the cove. Wished we had more than a week at that very location to drink pressed coffee on the adirondack chairs with the peaceful sounds of the ocean, birds and boats. The bed and pull out sofa bed were very comfortable and it is fully equipped in the small kitchen, had towels and other needs. The hosts are absolutely lovely and provided travel suggestions for the Irish loop that contributed to lasting memories. Thank you George and Chabela- this is a true gem!

The barn was absolutely beautiful! We could see the bay from bed. Shared bathroom was never an issue. The kitchen was perfectly stocked. George and Chabela were friendly, helpful and generous. A great place to stay if you are hiking the East Coast Trail or looking to explore La Manche park or Ferryland. I hope to return one day!
