Our lovely old fisherman’s house sits on the rocks at the end of the quaint fishing village of Samson’s Cove next to Little Anse and is surrounded by the ocean. Here you can enjoy a stunning and endless view in any direction.

Originally built by the first settlers in the mid-1800’s, Sailor’s Rest has recently been fully renovated and now offers air-condition, comfortable rooms equipped with bright furniture and handcrafted driftwood beach art. Here you can enjoy two cozy rooms with twin beds on the first floor or watch the sunset from an extendable queen size bed with memory foam mattress in the living room on the ground floor.

After sailing our boat across the Atlantic from Europe to Canada, we anchored just here. Nothing between the two continents, except water and waves (view from the window in the living room).

<—Klick the button to listen to „Sailor’s Rest“, a song written in 1982 by Stan Roger. His music and the famous festival held just across the bay opposite our cliffs inspired the name of the house.

…On the good old days. - Captains and mates getting testy - With memories not of the best - And tempers are flying - Down at the Sailor's Rest. (read full text

Sometimes, due to southeast winds, the big waves roll in right into the bay and you can experience a spectacular nature. All footage on the video above has been taken just around the Sailor`s Rest House and up to 10 minutes walking distance.
