I thought, wow, all that beautiful wood looks so comforting. But when we got to the cabin, the table was jiggling and shaking, the stove didn’t work in the oven caught on fire when we turned it on causing the smoke detectors to go off.Went to bed, turned on the fan and it sounded like a jet plane taking off, got into bed and felt like sleeping on the floor. And last but not least, the toilet was so low that my husband add to nearly get on his knees to sit on it. However the wood decor was very beautiful and comforting And the flat screen TV worked really well.
The cabin was clean and fairly well equipped for a couple of nights stay. We had planned to eat at the cafe but it had not opened for the season due to Covid19. I think they should make note of this on their website because there is nowhere to eat or buy food in the area. Make sure to bring your own for this year!
We rented at Burnt Cape cabins for 4 nights last week.Beautiful clean cabin literally across the street from the water and a view of the Burnt Cape ecological reserve.We LOVED the bed....sooo comfy! And for anyone who likes to beachcomb ,there are tons of sea glass on the beach! Lots of nice hikes in the area too.Unfortunately the cafe is not open this year due to Covid...so bring your own food. Kitchen was well equipped. Over all a wonderful place to call home for a few nights !
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.
