Welcome to Points East!

Points East Guest House and Retreat Center This century-old home on the eastern edge of the Atlantic provides a cozy environment filled with a collection of Newfoundland writing, music and art. Consider this your retreat from everyday stress.

The guesthouse/B&B, which during off-season (October-May) is available for workshops and retreats, includes four double bedrooms, two baths, comfortable seating areas and a full kitchen. Meals are offered on request. You have access to the porch, garden and hobby farm with goats and chickens that recreate a sense of the traditional lifestyle of the fishing families that occupied this special place in the past.

From the doorstep experience the views, sounds and smells of the ocean. Depending on the time of the year, watch whales, seabirds, icebergs passing by. A walk on our amazing East Coast Trail is sure to blow away any cobwebs. Sea air is said to have an abundance of healthy negative ions, created by the crashing waves.

Get to know the traditional outport (fishing village) Pouch Cove set along dramatic rocky coastline surrounded by woods and hills covered with blueberries, a place where the lifestyle tends to be slow-paced, quiet and friendly. Painters and writers come here to be inspired. You will be the first to see the sunrise in this most easterly community of North America.

From here hike the northern end of the scenic East Coast Trail with the help of maps and information provided by your host. This more than 400 km long trail attracts hikers from all over the world. Please see website www.trailconnections.ca for details on our hiking program.

From October to May Points East guesthouse is available for workshops and other events. Additional facilities in the vicinity can be used to accommodate larger group activities, such as yoga exercises. We are in the process of establishing a center that will focus on healthy living, natural foods, exercise and energy work. Suggestions for guest speakers on related topics are welcome. Please check the Events Section for details on future events, workshops and retreats.
