House in Mobile Newfoundland
Willow House Mobile Avalon Peninsula Newfoundland Country Cottage Rental Lodgings Accommodations
Host: Tor Fosnaes
Address: Mobile, Newfoundland, Canada
Activities/Attractions: The Southern Shore is the easternmost coast of Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula. Settled regularly since the mid 1600's, the population now consists of mid 19th century Irish and English families mixed with modern settlers.
You can walk the coastlines between communities using the East Coast Trail from St. John's to Cape Race and Trepassey. Willow House is on Cod Seine Cove Road which is part of the trail. For motorists, a day-trip around the Irish Loop (Routes 10 and 90) is a must.
Many of Newfoundland's 300 bird species visit Willow House feeders during the year. Rabbits are common around the garden on sunny mornings and, every now and then, a moose will visit. Bald eagles, ospreys, peregrine falcons, sharp-shinned, and other small hawks are seen regularly.
Seabird sanctuary islands offshore Mobile Bay are the summer home for millions of puffins, guillemots, terns, kittiwakes, and gulls. Three kinds of trout, two kinds of char, and salmon are angled near Mobile.
The Avalon Caribou grounds are a brief drive away. But, if for nothing else, come for the whales! Every summer humpbacks, minkes, pilots, and porpoises inhabit Mobile Bay.
