Twillingate Newfoundland and Labrador Canada is a rural town of 2121 people, according to Wikipedia, located on the Twillingate Islands in Notre Dame Bay. Off the North Eastern shore of the island, the top travel destination is located along famous “Iceberg Alley”, attracting tourists annually from all over the world. I would describe “Twilly” as a magical land filled with spectacular coastal hiking trails, awe inspiring landscapes, historic homes, traditional root cellars, hidden beaches and a love for the arts. The local people are kind hearted, welcoming and a pleasure to meet and live alongside. I look forward to learning more about the history and culture of Twillingate and discovering more in this unbelievable neck of the woods.

Below you will find just a small sample of photos from my recent weeks in Twillingate. However, I have much much more to come! In recent weeks I’ve been visiting my sweet friend and French interior designer, Charlie Fendley, who is also the innkeeper and owner of the Pumpkin House and Lupinfield Cottage. Furthermore, I have been exploring the coastal trails around the historical Long Point Lighthouse near Crow Head. I’ve been exploring NL root cellars, riding around the harbour in fishing boats, living in a live music show house and caring for cats and chickens (which is a whole other story).

Stay tuned for more from my new life in Twillingate Newfoundland and Labrador Canada

Newfoundland and Labrador weather is all over the place. One minute it could sunshine and the next minute it could be snowing! However, there doesn’t seem to be any shortage of grey foggy days!

The historic Pumpkin House in Twillingate in the perfect setting for “spooky season”. I felt like I was transported back in time to a different life as I strolled the dark rural road in the rain with an antique candlelight lantern.

The cellars use the natural cooling, humidifying and insulating properties of the ground to store food. Many old root cellars can be found scattered across the rugged landscape of Twillingate.

This bunkie by the sea in Twillingate caught my eye as I roamed nearby on the beach searching for sea glass and driftwood. Weathered and worn by the salty North Atlantic Ocean.

The Lupinfield Cottage is another stunning historic airbnb owned by designer Charlie Fendley. The charming vacation rental has been uniquely restored and is the former homestead of the Bulgin and Earle families. The house was built in the year 1898 and it was a cool experience to sleep in the “Rose Room” and wonder what tales those old walls could tell.
