The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need and the kitchen table can comfortably seat 8.
We have plenty of board games, a huge assortment of children's movies, and legos and crafts
Outside the patio door, there is a huge deck perfect for suntanning and for BBQ.
The deck overlooks the wonderful Hawco's Pond - a Newfoundland version of a lake. 7 Miles long with plenty of interesting places to explore.
We have left most of the front area wild - allowing for an interesting assortment of bushes and berry plants. Bird feeders around the property attract some winged visitors who join some squirrels and Newfoundland Hare. If you are really lucky perhaps a moose will come by for tea.
We have a large lower deck, 16ft floating dock, and concrete boat launch. The lower deck is great for summertime picnics, suntanning or watching the kids play in the water.
The floating dock extends 24 feet out from the land and the water is at least 12 feet deep off the end of the dock perfect for diving into the pond or sitting down and dangling your feet in the water.
We have a large area down below to turn a truck and trailer to launch a boat or Seadoo into the pond. Hawco's Pond is great and you can have fun all day.
We also have a canoe on the property for guests to use with plenty of life jackets.
In the summer, you will be treated to amazing sunsets as the sun sets directly across the pond from the back deck.
Enjoy golfing at one of Newfoundland’s finest courses, The Wilds or visit Salmonier Nature Park, a sanctuary to nurse some of the locals back to health.
The Salmonier Line is also a perfect starting point for trip up towards Hearts Delight or Northern Bay Sands or down around the Irish Loop.

Located in Cabin Country. There are over 100 owners on Pioneer Line one of three areas in Deer Park. We are 5kms on a well graded dirt road. Getting around
Great place for quads or dirt bikes or even riding traditional bikes. Lots of kids around in the summer for the child who is willing to explore. A real sense of freedom for both your children and for you.
There is plenty of place on the property to explore in the lower or upper woods - they may even take their hand at adding to a tree fort that needs upgrading.
Despite lots of owners the lots are mature and you have good privacy on the property. There are also not a lot of boats on the pond.
There is a convenience store 5 km away and a local diner about the same distance.
Bring your friends and party with you or enjoy time to relax and use the place as a launching off point for your exploration of Irish Loop or Baccalieu Trail.
