Avalon Peninsula cottage rentals are located on the southeast portion of the island of Newfoundland, nestled among colourful fishing villages along the rugged, rocky shoreline.
The Peninsula is home to the East Coast Trail, an experience that takes hikers and walkers to the outermost reaches of North America! The region’s ecological reserves and provincial parks, including Butter Pot, Chance Cove, Gooseberry Cove, and La Manche, take visitors to the edge of the continent to see icebergs and whales.
As North America’s first region of settlement, the Avalon Peninsula is full of culture and heritage sites that bring history to life. Stroll the narrow streets of Conception Bay’s Brigus, or past the brightly painted homes in St. Brides. Enjoy a Lighthouse picnic in Ferryland, or fish and chips at Ches’s, a chippery that dates back to the 1950s. In the capital city, check out well-preserved heritage buildings and stylish restaurants.
With some of the most spectacular scenery in North America, Avalon Peninsula cottage rentals—just a few hours’ drive from St. John, the province’s capital—are popular with natural, outdoors, and cultural enthusiasts alike.+ More
