Decor Galore!

Amazing place to see, loved the wallpaper! We also loved the library and there is the oldest building on the island on the property.

Historic house, impressive location.
Sep 2019 • Couples
We purchased tickets to see the nearby lighthouse which also gave us entry to this historic house, all for $6/adult. Beautifully located by the sea there is not a great deal to view but the guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Some period furniture and originally laid out rooms gave some context. The last owner of the property was instrumental in Newfoundland becoming part of Canada in 1949. So it does have some national significance.

A little piece of Newfoundland history
Aug 2019
We went here only because our ticket to the lighthouse gave us entrance but we were charmed immediately. The house had knowledgeable guides on every floor who told you about the family who had lived there and how the restoration had taken place. We have been very impressed with the tour guides in Newfoundland and this little house was worth the stop.

Beautiful location - ask to see the barn!
Jul 2019 • Friends
This wonderful historic house has a great location by the water in Bonavista. All too often, historic house tours can be too long, but this one was just right - the pace was good, and the guide gave us general information and let us ask questions about what most interested us. She mentioned that the barn on the grounds is very old, but that it isn't part of the tour, but she was happy to let us see it upon request. I would recommend that the barn become a regular part of the tour, since it seems to have a very colorful history, having served as a house and as a church at various times in its history. While visiting, stop off at the Bonavista Bicycle Picnic Cafe for a snack or a great lunch! It's literally right next door!

Informative historical stop
Jul 2019 • Family
We got the ticket to here and the lighthouse for $6/adult. It was well worth the stop if you’re in the area. There are guides inside that provide you with the historical context of the house and surrounding area. You can also take a nice walk around the grounds.

Mostly of interest to Newfounlanders
Jul 2019 • Couples
The guides did a good job of explaining this historic house to us and the setting is lovely. As Americans, however, we were completely unfamiliar with the politician who lived there so it was just another old home, without much special interest. However, entry came free along with our ticket to the Cape Bonavista lighthouse so we’re not complaining.

Site of some significance to Newfoundland joining Canada
Jun 2019 • Family
Besides being one of the best-preserved old properties in Bonavista (possibly in Newfoundland too...there are many!), what I really found interesting were the numerous artifacts pertaining to Newfoundland's joining the Canadian confederation in 1949. The house used to belong to a well-known senator who played an influential role in this decision. For those unfamiliar with this chapter in Canadian history, the site is definitely worth a visit

Interesting historic house
Jun 2019 • Solo
I enjoyed my visit to this historic house. I was the only person in the house and the guide gave an introduction and I explored on my own. It was a cold rainy day and as soon as I left he locked up the house. I'm not sure that I got the full experience. However, I enjoyed exploring the home and hearing some of the stories.
