The mountains and ever changing ocean will greet you through the picture perfect window. Located just 1 hour and 15 minutes from Gander International Airport, 15 minutes from Twillingate and 45 minutes from the Fogo Island Ferry!
Whale tails and a womb chair welcome you to Grandma J's. The waterfront rental home provides lots of places to curl up with a good book in between your hikes, fishing, and swimming in the nearby lake.
Grandma J's was built over 130+ years ago when rooms were small. Today, the first floor is wide open and filled with locally produced art and photos of local wildlife.
Local white birch was used on the kitchen island and a craftsman from nearby Fairbanks custom built the cabinets. Add new stainless steel appliances and you'll be cooking (if you want) with a view!
The original 130+ year old wood floors, walls, and ceilings have all been preserved, strengthened, and treated so that our guests can see the quality craftsmanship that makes Newfoundland special.
Grandma J thought of everything and now two full bathrooms are available, one upstairs and one downstairs. A 62" completely renovated antique tub downstairs and a 5' X 3' tiled shower upstairs!
The Parsons' home, now known as Grandma Js, is shown at center of boat up on the hill before the road was built in the 1970's. The Parsons kept their winter provisions in the 'store' which is the white shed to the left of the boat.
Herring Neck was bustling with cod fishing activity in the 1950s especially at G.J. Carter's. You can see the very top window of Grandma Js peaking over the large buildings along the docks. Notice all the homes that were on Ship Island across the water.
Sadly the cod fishing moratorium brought an end to the activity and life along G.J. Carter's. All of the proud wooden structures on the right hand side were removed in the 1970s. The road that you now see out of Grandma J's window was built in the late 1970s.
The docks were the lifeblood of the Herring Neck community regarding life, work, recreation, and public affairs. The particular neighborhood of Grandma J's at the end of the neck is known as 'Sunnyside'.
Herring Neck, Merrit's Harbour, and Salt Harbour have a strong tradition of family, community and friendship. The warmth of the people continues today where neighbors always help and guests can learn of kindness and respect.
This 1951 picture shows Ship Island (center) and Salt Harbour Island (back and toward left). The view is directly north of Grandma Js and can be seen from the windows of Grandma Js or at the top of the hill. The homes were relocated and pines grew strong.
Fully restored by local craftspeople with the natural materials of Newfoundland while providing all the conveniences of today. (Please note: 3 Night Rental Minimum, No Smoking and No Pets)
