We visited on Canada Day and so had a bonus of local entertainment in the Old Store house.
In the plantation my favourite part was the large room where all the newspaper clippings and cartoons were stored.

This is simply an old house that has been preserved. The guides were quite informative but I would not travel to Bonavista to just see this. We got a dual pass with the lighthouse but the lighthouse was much more interesting

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

The tour guide was a delight! She went through the whole place explaining every room in detail, it was very educational to learn about NL first senator

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
