Hampton House

is a private oceanfront artist-designed 2-bedroom house overlooking the rugged Newfoundland coast. Situated on a winding oceanfront road at the edge of the historic town of Bonavista, Hampton House is an ideal base for enjoying the rugged Newfoundland outdoors. A traditional pitched roof saltbox built in 1926 and renovated in 2012, Hampton House is cosy and casually elegant, maintaining its original Newfoundland charm and character. Get away from it all in this lovely, quirky, history filled part of the world!

Hampton House is the perfect home away from home while enjoying adventures on the Bonavista Peninsula. Whether you want to stay a few days or a week or two; whether you live nearby, elsewhere in Canada or are visiting from abroad, we have something to offer all of our visitors. It’s for those of you seeking uniqueness in accommodation and touring. Initially planned as an Artist Retreat, it’s still available for those of you on sabbatical, official or otherwise. Please contact us for special long term rates if you are interested.

The House is decorated in classic cottage style contemporary amenities and accents. Authentic antique furniture, the timeless reproductions of early Canadiana/Quebec furniture hand-built by Weller’s Antiques in Ontario alongside unique flea market furniture finds from Europe and here in Newfoundland blend together to give Hampton House a unique design. Sustainability wherever possible is the design thread. History and culture are on display throughout.

Quirky rebuilding and refinishing of old furniture, doors, fences etc. add to the originality of Hampton House. 

Original art adorns the walls, as do theme displays that we hope expand your Newfoundland experience.The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need—fridge, microwave oven, coffee maker, as well as a stove with oven to bake your own blueberry pie after a day of picking. Dishes are done the old fashioned way! The laundry room has a washer and dryer. 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 being reclaimed as a wild meadow with Newfoundland flowers. Enjoy the unobstructed view, the sunsets, whales, icebergs, and countless birds (especially when the fishing boats are returning from sea). Below the picnic table there is a fire pit on the rocky beach, perfect for bonfires, “brew ups” and for roasting marshmallows. There are flat rocks to climb, rocky alcoves to explore and lots of opportunity for sunning inches from the ocean, listening to the wave’s crash on the rocks and watching the clouds above.
