Holiday Rental House
Welcome to the William LeGrow House! Nestled in the heart of the quiet fishing village of Bauline is our traditional Newfoundland outport house. Offering views of the ocean and the 1000 ft mountain next door, it is just a three minute walk to the harbour wharf (including the time to get on your boots) and only a 30 minute drive from downtown St. John's. Our place offers all the peace and charm of a picturesque house and village “around the bay” in Newfoundland, but all the convenience of the close proximity to the provincial capital. For over sixty years, the house was owned by a fisherman, William LeGrow, and his wife Jean. They raised a family of seven children there and it still retains the atmosphere of a warm family home. The William LeGrow House features: • Full eat- in kitc...Welcome to the William LeGrow House! Nestled in the heart of the quiet fishing village of Bauline is our traditional Newfoundland outport house. Offering views of the ocean and the 1000 ft mountain next door, it is just a three minute walk to the harbour wharf (including the time to get on your boots) and only a 30 minute drive from downtown St. John's. Our place offers all the peace and charm of a picturesque house and village “around the bay” in Newfoundland, but all the convenience of the close proximity to the provincial capital. For over sixty years, the house was owned by a fisherman, William LeGrow, and his wife Jean. They raised a family of seven children there and it still retains the atmosphere of a warm family home. The William LeGrow House features: • Full eat- in kitchen (includes stove, fridge, microwave, espresso maker, and basic staples and condiments) • Full 4pc bath • Two sitting rooms • 3 bedrooms –sleeps 6 (2 double beds (with new mattresses in 2016), 1 twin bed, 1 spare twin foam mattress)-all linens included • Wood stove and Electric heat • Washer & dryer • BBQ • Large deck • Wireless Internet • TV (no cable but a large selection of vintage movies) • Ocean and mountain views • Half hour drive from downtown St. John's • 20 minute drive from St. John's international airport Local Amenities: The newly extended East Coast Trail travels right through the Town of Bauline, steps from our door, offering marked hiking trails North and South along the coast. One can also find local trails to the top of the mountain, which provide stunning views in all directions. Try berry picking in the fall. View icebergs in the spring and even spot a whale just off shore of the community if you are lucky. In season, river fishing is available in the Bauline River, just a few minutes' walk through the town. During the recreational food fishery (twice a year) cod can be caught in the ocean departing from the town harbor if you are lucky enough to have your own boat, or possibly you can find a local fisherman to take you out. St. John's provides a wealth of things to do, places to explore, and events to entertain you. Bauline provides an excellent starting point to explore the city of St. John's, and many interesting, historic and beautiful parts of the Avalon Peninsula. More

About the neighbourhood
The town of Bauline, just a 30 minute drive from St. John's and 20 minute drive from the airport, is a quiet fishing village with its own wharf and dramatic ocean and inland views. Facing West over the waters of Conception Bay, beautiful sunsets can be seen with the hills of the other side of the bay low on the horizon. The east cost trail passes right through the town offering hiking trails to the North and South as far as you care to travel. All the peace and tranquility of a village 'around the bay' and only a quick trip in to town to enjoy all the arts, entertainment and history that St. John's has to offer.
