Welcome! Bienvenue! Willkommen! Bienvenido! Velkommen!
Hampton House is the perfect home away from home after enjoying adventures on the Bonavista Peninsula especially for those of you from abroad and staying one week or more. Perfect for the city travellers from St. John’s or those of you from Gander, the West Coast, etc. who just want some peace and quiet and even find the Trinity side way too busy these days. It’s for those of you seeking uniqueness. Initially planned as an Artist Retreat it’s still available for those of you on sabbatical. Please contact me privately for special long term rates.
The House is decorated in 50’s meets 60’s a bit of the 70’s and 2014 contemporary style. Authentic antique furniture, the timeless reproductions of early Canadiana/Quebec furniture hand built by Weller’s Antiques in Ontario (yup, that’s my dad) alongside unique flea market furniture finds from Europe and here in Newfoundland blend together to give Hampton House its uniqueness in design. Sustainability wherever possible is the design thread.
Quirky rebuilding and refinishing of old furniture, doors, fences etc. add to the originality of Hampton House.
Original art from many Canadian, Newfoundland and European artists adorn the walls. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. Fridge, microwave oven, as well as an apartment stove with oven to bake your blueberry pie after a day of picking. Dishes are done the old fashioned way! The laundry room has a washer and dryer, as well as an antique armoire for boots and outer clothing. There are 2 sets of raincoats and rain pants plus caps you are welcome to use for those many walks and hikes that you will most certainly want to take.
The million dollar view can be enjoyed from virtually any spot on the property, especially from the private picnic table on the oceanfront land I’m reclaiming as a wild meadow with Newfoundland flowers. Enjoy the unobstructed view, the sunsets, whales, icebergs, countless birds, especially when the fishing boats are returning from sea. Below the picnic table there is a campsite fireplace, perfect for bonfires, “brew ups” and for roasting marshmallows. I like to climb the flat rocks and sun myself inches from the ocean, listening to the wave’s crash on the rocks while lying in the sun, watching the clouds fly by high above.

To somewhat slow down life and remember family time I looked back at my memories of summer cottage living in Ontario, I opted for no dishwasher, no telephone and no TV.
A paradise for every hiker, photographer, nature lover and those just seeking peace. This location is ideal for those wanting to be close to nature, but enjoy all the comforts whilst retreating from the ‘real world’.
