The PenneyStead Vacation House

penneysteadLocated in the nearby fishing village of English Harbour, The PenneyStead Vacation House is a completely refurbished 1930’s Saltbox home with an incredible ocean view! It is located in the tranquil centuries old fishing outport of English Harbour in Trinity Bight – just 15 minutes from Historic Trinity and 30 minutes from Bonavista. Our central location makes the perfect base to explore the entire Bonavista Peninsula & Trinity Bay region. Take day trips to Terra Nova National Park or Bonavista Bay. Watch whales frolic close to shore from our patio deck during the Capelin Roll in June & July! We’re also located on Iceberg Alley where numerous bergs, majestic & unique, frequent our coastline in spring & early summer.

There’s hiking, biking and berry picking in late summer & fall right on our doorstep too – trek to the resettled community of Green Bay or hike the cliffs of the “Horse Chops” with an incredible ocean backdrop. If you like to travel later in the season, you’ll be glad to know that we have a beautiful autumn! The temperatures remain quite nice with clear skies through much of September & October and many attractions stay open until mid October in the Trinity Bight area.

Don’t forget your camera – or you’ll miss the perfect shot of that staggering iceberg, the breaching pod of humpbacks, or the perching bald eagle. After an exciting day of outdoor exploring – make the short drive to Trinity for a meal of fresh seafood and a evening of award winning theatre. You’ll bring home memories that will keep you yearning to come back again & again!
