Your New Favourite Getaway

Captain Cook Bed & Breakfast and Cottages.

Point your compass to relaxation and adventure at Captain Cook Bed & Breakfast and Cottages in York Harbour, Newfoundland. Our oceanfront accommodations are nestled under the foothills of the Long Range Mountains on the south shore of the Bay of Islands in Western Newfoundland. You’ll find us on Route 450, also known as Captain Cook’s Trail.

Let the ocean air fill your lungs as you take in the landscape and wide-open ocean from your cottage. Your view of the outer archipelago of the Bay of Islands is sprinkled with islands which were charted by explorer and cartographer Captain James Cook in 1767. To the west is the dome shaped Lark Harbour Head. To the east are the time-worn Blow Me Down Mountains. In the quiet, you’ll hear sea birds calling and local fisherman going about their days.

Trout Fishing

Trout Fishing

Trout are bountiful in the numerous lakes and ponds in our area. From fly casting on a brook or a river, to spinner casting in a pond, there's nothing quite like the feel of a fish on your hook!



Hiking in the Bay of Islands is simply breathtaking. In fact, some say the trails of the south shore of the outer Bay of Islands are the best kept secret in Newfoundland!

Boat Tours

Boat Tours

Take a trip on the Bay in an authentic "Lark Harbour Dory". For over 50 years this small craft with its distinctive orange and green paint has been the main transportation for many fishers in the Bay of Islands.

Thanks for the "at home" experience. What a beautiful place. The bonfire was very much appreciated and enjoyed by a former Cape Bretoner!
