“…loved everything about this Nest…”
Guests: John and Nancy, Lindsay, Ontario
Dates of stay: July 4-6, 2019
Karen and David, thank you for this little piece of heaven! Right from booking way back,  everything was smooth and easy. Our time here in Petty Harbour was above and beyond our expectations. Our “low part” of our trip!! We cooked fresh lobsters one night and fulfilled another ‘want’ on my bucket list (fresh lobster, cooked here, from the area!) We will be planning a return trip in the future and we know where to come!! ShoreLark it is…loved everything about this Nest in the sky. Thank you for everything!!

“No detail was left out”.

Let’s start a trend. I’ve left a small bag of treats, which includes a small magnet from our home town. When we come back we would love to see a fridge full of magnets from all over the world. Your piece of heaven most definitely attracts all walks of life. Our sincere gratitude for the use of your home away from home. No detail was left out. However, Husband suggests a block and tackle to carry our luggage up the stairs, LOL. But the view is certainly worth it!!!
Thanks Joey & Angie–it’s true, the view is worth the steps!!


“We will definitely recommend ShoreLark to all our friends!”

Really loved our time here in the Lower Nest. Every detail to make a traveller feel at home has been looked after, and the accommodation is tasteful. Thank you, Karen & David, especially enjoyed your hospitality with getting us some fresh lobsters to cook–a new adventure for us, and delicious! Also–I was able to finish Alan Doyle’s book whole we were here–so much fun to be being in the place that he wrote about! And–we met Perry Chafe’s mother out walking! We will definitely recommend ShoreLark to all our friends!
Perry  Chafe is another immensely talented local lad, with a well-deserved reputation, who works with some very big names! And his Mom is such a sweetheart!

“World class trail!”
Guests: Erin & Jeff, Thunder Bay, Ontario
Dates of stay: June 22–28, 2019
Tired from our hiking/running adventures,
We trodded home every night
to the ShoreLark Nest
which Karen & David set up just right.
We hail from Northern Ontario,
But now it’s time to go cheerio!

Our goal was to run most of the East Coast Trail which we did (minus the section that was closed). Our first day we ran from Brigus South to Bay Bulls. It was a long day at 42km. Our second day we ran from Cappahayden to Kingsman Cove (20- km). We were tired but the sun shone. Our third day we ram from Calvert to Cape Broyle (18 km). By far the hilliest but some beautiful shore did we see! Our fourth day we ran from Port Kirwan to Aquaforte (17 km)– our shortest day but the arch was a surprise! Our fifth day we ran around Signal Hill – a ‘town” day– and  our last day was Bay Bulls to Petty Harbour. World class trail!

Guests: Peter and Joanne, Newmarket, Ontario

The last four days have been fabulous. Thanks to both of you–the wonderful spot here in Petty Harbour and its’ amazing people. We have found so much to fill our days and peaceful quiet nights here in the Upper Nest. Newfoundland has captured our hearts–we will be back.


“Your Nest was everything we could possibly wish for! And then some.”
Guests: Alison and Paul, Port Hope, Ontario
Dates of stay: June 18-21, 2019
Wow, what a perfect place for a base on our visit to St. John’s and the Avalon. Your Nest was everything we could possibly wish for! And then some.

Petty Harbour is such a fantastic place. Loved the setting and all the action around the harbour. Thanks for all of your suggestions place to see/eat/visit/walk. They were all good ones. This is a spectacularly beautiful part of our country. We’re beginning to understand why Newfoundlanders always want to return at some point in their lives. Thank you, Karen + David, for this great experience.
