About Shelley Swift
We currently own a property in Lark Harbour just a few house down the road from Lark Harbour house. My wife and I enjoy our summers in Lark Harbour boating and fishing.
Shelley Swift purchased this House in 2016
Why Shelley Swift chose Newfoundland and Labrador
My wife has lived in Lark Harbour her whole life - she grew up just a few houses away from Lark Harbour house - actually, her Aunt was one of the first owners of Lark Harbour house. This property thus has historical significance for us and we are very happy to now have the opportunity to keep it running as a vacation rental. We are sure you will develop a love of the property as we currently do.
What makes this House unique
This property has been run successfully as a vacation rental since 2012. It has provided a temporary "home away from home" for many satisfied travelers since that time. The home offers a breathtaking view of the harbour. It's quite presence in the very calm and welcoming community of Lark Harbour is sure to continue to satisfy all vacationers.

Oldest standing house
We enjoyed staying at this oldest standing house at Lark Harbour. It was well stocked with supplies and it had all necessities. The views were breathtaking.
There are many nearby trails, out of which old copper trail was our favourite. The trail is about 5 km one way with 650 meters elevation. The views from the top were worth the hike.
Great place to get away
Beautiful part of the world in a picturesque small Newfoundland town. If you want quiet and some of the best hiking/views/kayaking imaginable, this is your place.
Loved Lark Harbour House!
We only had a very short one night stay wishing we had longer...
A lovely traditional Newfoundland home steeped in history. Wonderful artifacts on display. Very cozy and meticulously clean. It was a perfect spot for a family of four and our dog. Enjoyed breakfast at the fire pit overlooking the harbour. We highly recommend this place and stay longer than one night!
what a sweet spot
Shelley navigated us beautifully through some last minute booking glitches, with the online system which is geared for advance bookings.
this is a lovely immaculately clean cottage, with a perfect spot across the little street to sit by the water, I would gladly recommend it to anyone.
Lark Harbour cozy home
We really enjoy this historic cozy home for the short 4 night stay. The location was wonderful, we were minutes away from great hiking trails and in the beautiful Lark Harbour.
Greatly appreciated the kitchen and the washer and dryer !!! Didn't use the wood stove but I am sure it comes in handy in the fall.
Greatly recommend for hikers or weekend get away.
