About The Owners

 

...following a dream

Nola & Paul had a dream and when they saw this little place in Coffee Cove, they fell in love with its natural setting and beauty. As quoted by the Springdale Norwester local newspaper..."There's a saying in real estate circles, that you don't buy a house, it buys you. That is certainly the case for the newest owners of a sprawling oceanfront property in Coffee Cove."

Nola is originally from New World Island but like many Newfoundlanders, left home after school to pursue a career on the mainland. The need to come home grew stronger as the years went by. Nola met Paul in Ontario. He was born and raised in the small town of St. Jacobs Ontario. When Nola brought Paul to Newfoundland for the first time he fell in love with everything about it. They always talked about starting a waterfront retreat somewhere but hadn't quite decided where...AND THEN THERE WAS COFFEE COVE...and the rest is history.

The Newfoundland people are known world-wide for their friendly and hospitable ways. Nola and Paul would like to share their love for this place with their guests and promise them the ultimate 'down-home' experience.

This place is very special to us, we feel very welcomed and at home here. We are enjoying it year round with each season bringing new challenges and adventures. We especially look forward to the summers and welcoming new guests who will hopefully find it as special as we do. We run a small retreat here which allows us the opportunity to focus on the comfort and needs of our guests on a day to day basis. We promise a Newfoundland experience like no other.

Well our seventh summer season is now behind us and we would like to thank everyone involved in making it a memorable one, especially our guests who came from near and afar to stay at the retreat. We thank all of the guests for their wonderful comments on their visit here, and it means so much that you all enjoyed your time with us. If you want to see what guests are doing and saying, please check out our "Summer Memories" page... very entertaining indeed. We look forward to next summer and hope that we will see some of our visitors back again. Even though the cottages are now closed down for the winter, we will still be offering our B&B suite in the main house year round. Check out the "Bed and Breakfast Suite" webpage for all the details on this beautiful 4 star suite.

NICKY

Saint Nicholas (Nicky) June 2008 - July 2014
REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND...TIL WE MEET AGAIN.
 
Nicky was our Newfoundland Dog. Our big boy has been gone now since July 2014. Nicky was a wonderful addition to our family and to the retreat. He was our mascot, our greeter and most of all our baby.
 
The Newfoundland Dog is an icon of this province and known world wide for their gentle nature and their lifesaving abilities with their web feet and natural swimming ability.
 
Nicky was naturally drawn to the ocean and he insisted on his morning dip and a walk on the beach every day before settling in for a nap. Nicky was the first to welcome our guests during the years before he passed. He instinctively sat waiting for his photo shoot with guests before they departed.
 
For all the people who visited and had the opportunity to meet Nicky, feel free to send your pictures and memories and I will proudly post them on the website, as a special tribute to him.
 
Quote from Newfoundland & Labrador Tourism... A LAND THAT LIVES BY THE SEA...NO WONDER OUR DOGS HAVE WEBBED FEET.  IMAGINE THAT!
 
....LIKE A DUCK TO WATER!
