Even though I'd read that staying in a Burnt Cape Cabin was definitely not 'roughing it," I was very pleasantly surprised to find our accommodations to be more like a very spacious half of a duplex. Cabin 3 was the only one available when we booked, and it was larger than needed for 2 people, but we found it very convenient to use 1 bedroom for our luggage and the other for sleeping. Because we were there in late September, the restaurant was not open. We would have liked to sample the proprietor's cuisine! During our two-day stay, we purchased breakfast food at a Tim Horton's on the north end of St. Anthony to stow in the refrigerator; it was no more than a 30-minute drive away, and we found very fine places for lunch and dinner in St. Lunaire and St. Anthony after exploring at L'Anse aux Meadows and sites in St. Anthony. It was great to have the kitchen stocked with coffee and to have a washer and dryer there, also. The store across the street met our other needs when we needed batteries for cameras, etc.
Our family of four stayed in one of the cabins for 2 nights. It was clean, we'll furnished and great for a family. Right across the street is the local grocery store, post office and cafe where we had dinner each night. Give Ted's moose burger a try. It is delicious. This is probably the best place to stay for a visit to L'Anse aux Meadows. Not at all touristy and a great way to get a taste of local life in this small, charming coastal town. Our last day we got a tour of the ecological reserve with Ted. He was a fantastic tour guide and gave us lots of interesting local information and history. We even saw a small iceberg in the distance, unusual for late July. Hopefully we'll be back sometime in the future.
Stayed for two nights, after a very long drive , the check in went very smoothly but soon discovered some disappointing things, BBQ cooking area is shared by all cabins, would have preferred on our own deck ( should have checked this out first) so tired and didn’t have the energy to socialize. Started to cook our supper but stove didn’t work, I informed the owner and he replaced next day but that didn’t help that night, brought our food to our friends cabin, she had two burners on hers that didn’t work either, but we managed, thank god we had them or would have gone to bed hungry! Only problem I take away from this is the owner took no responsibility for the appliance not working, can’t fix something he’s not told about ( who’s supposed to tell you) I believe it’s the owners responsibility to ensure everything is in working order! The cabin itself is beautiful but I would not want to have to make use of sofa bed, you’d have to move table and chairs in front of only exit to open it up. I have pics of opened coffee, sugar, I never grew up with a silver spoon in my mouth as owner suggested to my husband but I wouldn’t use this stuff after someone else, I feel it’s unhygienic, that’s just my opinion, I guess some people don’t mind. The shower curtain ( pic provided as well) was moldy, no light in shower so I didn’t see it until I was about to take a bath and pulled shower curtain out of tub the last night there. Informed owner next morning at checkout and again didn’t take responsibility cause no one told him? He told my husband I was talking down to him but I just find that he was defensive because he didn’t want to take responsibility. Despite the issues, the cabin was beautiful and I had two really good nights sleep and loved the area
We came here to spend the night before we checked out the Viking story at L’Anse aux Meadow it is a 30 minute drive to the site. The cabins were well designed with a bedroom separate from a sitting room/ kitchen. The bathroom had a tub. We were initially landing to stay 2 nights but our return flight from Deer Lake was moved up so we asked to cancel the second night and requested a refund. This was agreed to so we were very happy with the considerate service The cabins front onto the water with great views to be had
I spent a superb 7 days at Burnt Cape Cabins in Raleigh, Newfoundland. The owners (Ted and Marina Hedderson) and all the staff were friendly and caring. Ted is an accomplished Chef, and Marina is the attentive manager of their restaurant, so both the food and service were excellent. In addition, they have a well stocked mini-mart on site. They offer Wi-Fi and the television reception is good. My cabin was very clean and cozy with a warm wood interior. It contained a full bathroom and an open-area kitchen/dining/sitting room as well as a separate bedroom. Ted also offers private and group tours of the surrounding region. As a serious photographer, I booked a two-day private tour. As a result, I captured wonderful images: various tiny flowers hidden in the low ground-cover of the Ecological Reserve; a caribou that was wondering around the Reserve; a real iceberg (as opposed to a “growler”); interesting landscapes; wave action (crashing surf to soft long exposure); and the wonderful characters at the Viking Village (L’Anse aux Meadows). The story teller was so enjoyable and engaging that I was reluctant to rush off. Furthermore, all of the local people that I met were friendly and interesting to converse with. Before my departure on July 13, 2019, I booked another week-long stay in June 2020.
These are clean, quiet, well furnished cabins with a kitchen. We do not use it preferring the food in the café, which features excellent lobster. Raleigh used to be called Ha Ha village but after a local citizen spent some time in the states he pushed to have renamed after Raleigh NC. Easy access to the Lanse aux meadows Viking historic site and St Anthony museums and waterfront.
This group owns 2 properties...Burnt Cape in Raliegh and Viking Lodge in the Bush. When you book it doesn't tell you which one and if you end up at the Viking Lodge it is in the middle if no where. It was 20+ minutes (of hard driving) from the turn off from the highway to Raliegh to the lodge. The room was clean. There are no amenities. No cell service (again that is always a possibility to Newfoundland) and nothing around. If you go, make sure you are supplied for the night. Room I booked had a bed and a sofa bed which we needed. Once the sofa bed is out there is NO room to move. See picture. There was just 1 adult and 1 child, so we made it work but it doesn't work! If booking, make sure you know which spot you are getting. I felt that I was booking at one spot and was sent to the other. May not be a fair assessment but it is how I felt.
We had a cabin that had two rooms each with a queen bed. There was a full sized kitchen, living room, kitchen area as well as a washer and dryer. I small deck with chairs to sit outside. The big bonus we were a stone's throw from the water's edge. Our days usually started out foggy, but we were lucky enough for it to clear off later in the day. Our last night we even had a gorgeous sunset. We ate at the cafe a couple of times and we all really enjoyed our meals. I had a moose burger, BLT sandwich and the the panfried cod - excellent. This area is a little off the beaten path but would stay here without question - the owner was even nice enough to lit a campfire for us two nights.
Spent a night in a lovely cabin. Very clean and comfortable. Good quality towels and plush bath mat. Enjoyed sitting on the deck looking out over the bay in the evening. A nice place for hikes and sunset on our way up to visit to L'Anse Meadows and to view icebergs. Delicious food in the restaurant. Everyone was very friendly.
I do not know what the Cabins are like, but the Viking Lodge, was poor, unless you want complete basics. Breakfast was good but for other food , 15 min on very rough road , then 20 minutes to nearest restaurant/store. a number of things in our room did not work. The cost, for what we got, was high Caretakers we nice.
