One of the greatest things about many of the Bay Houses has to be
their location. Certainly this is true of Eagle Peak. It's about
the view . . . And breathtaking it is!
High on a sloping hillside in Trinity East, Eagle Peak overlooks the
village and its assortment of other Bay Houses, the harbour, the
historic village of Trinity and the ocean beyond the lighthouse. It
is a tranquil, mesmerizing vista, complete with the early morning
put-put of the single-stroke engine of the trap skiff heading out the
harbour, or the haunting sound of the lighthouse drifting through
silver-soft fog banks.
Eagle Peak, a Newfoundland Vacation Home, provides the setting for
the sights and sounds of the area to wash over you while you soak in
the comforts and aesthetics of a traditional Bay House. Each room
resonates with the living history of the out-port through generous
use of relevant art and antique furnishings. Simple yet elegant.
