Dogs welcome - pleases review policies and rules

Looking for a great place to relax, write, pray or enjoy some solitude and silence, this place is for you!

The cabin is 30 mi south of St. John's near Tors Cove. IT is on its own acre of land on the lake (called Tors Cove Pond). There is a small lawn area and also rock gardens on property. It has lake frontage, and the water does not get deep too quickly and has a firm bottom. The last mile is gravel road, no problem for most vehicles, but may be smoother at some times than others. No smoking inside the cabin please.

The cabin has an open concept downstairs with a fully equipped kitchen (dishes, pots, pans, toaster, coffee maker, staples and a few spices), living room (double sofa bed and front opening wood stove), and eating area.

Bring a bundle or two of dry hardwood (at most gas bars) to mix in with the spruce (may be a bit green) there if you want a good fire in wood stove. There is a scrap lumber in driveway for beach fires.

There are 2 bedrooms upstairs one with double bed, one with two singles. Bathroom is also upstairs and has a tub and shower. Cabin is 24x26 with vertical wood siding and pine interior with NL and Mexican collectibles, wall hangings etc. Large front windows and deck give a beautiful view of the lake. There is a gas BBQ on the front deck.

All linens and towels are there. Pots and pans, dishes, cutlery, etc. Even staples such as sugar, salt, pepper, certain spices, tea bags, coffee filters, etc. In the fridge there's often margarine, ketchup, relish, mustard, bbq sauce and ice, and also always enough drinking water in pantry. There is a small color TV with CBC only, and a radio. Bring your suitcase, some food and a toothbrush and you're all set. Any other questions, just ask.
Guest access
The entire property is yours to enjoy.
Sleep inside or pitch a tent and sleep on the grass.
Lots of parking on property.
Additional notes
Please no smoking in the Cabin. You are welcome to smoke outside. Please also watch for your butts. No WIFI but mobile reception is good.
Some things you need to know:

1. There will be a manual with all necessary info for you there on the kitchen counter. You’ll need to turn on the propane at side of cabin and light pilots on stovetop and oven. Also turn on breaker at panel for electric hot water.
2. The water in traps and shower, etch. Is gravity fed from a large tank behind cabin, and so the water pressure will be lower than you are used to.
3. This is a cabin in the woods. No way to keep spiders out, so cobwebs can spring up anywhere in a matter of hours. There is a brush on a long handle there for removing them.
4. It is my personal use cabin as well, with nooks, crannies, high ceilings, and knick knacks well up on wood walls, etc. Do not expect a “crisp white linen” resort cabin.
5. We will have no running water until middle of May 2022.
Guest interaction
I am completely available to talk at all phases of your visit. My intention is for you to have a great time and want to ensure that all your questions are answered in a timely way.

Please ask if you want directions or suggestions, I am only to happy to help.
Neighborhood overview
It is a 3 mil to the small village of Tors Cove (convenience-type store and gas), 12 mil to a good size grocery store (Bay Bulls) and 30 mi to St John’s, only 45 min away with all it’s attractions and events. There is a laundromat in Burnt Cove (4 miles away) and one in Witless Bay (8 miles). Restaurants are in Witless Bay and Cape Broyle. Lots to do in the area. There are boat tours of whales, puffins and icebergs nearby (I recommend Seabird Tours, 334-2098). Very close too is LaManche Prov Pk and the East Coast Trail through the abandoned community, etc. – very interesting. The scenic Irish Loop drive takes you around the southern Avalon with Lord Baltimores historic archeological dig and museum at Ferryland, the wilderness area (caribou,etc.) and and close-up whale watching from St Vincent’s beach.
Getting around
On gravel road on backside of pond, 3 mi. from community Tors Cove.
