Welcome to the Reuben Crowley House, an authentic traditional Newfoundland Biscuit Box Homestead, built 1941 on the south side of Western Bay. Enjoy the views of the bay and the Atlantic Ocean, as well as the sand and shingle beaches just a short stroll from the house. Paths over the hills will take you to other coves and the remains of abandoned communities in the area. Three bedrooms, each with a double bed, comfortably accommodate singles, couples, or families.
This architectural style is endemic to Newfoundland, and is named for the low-sloped rafters that give it the shape of a traditional package of hard bread or “hard biscuits.” This house is in the process of restoration & rehabilitation after 75 years of occupation by the Crowley family, with many of their furnishings. The outbuildings are currently off-limits.
Whole house, not outbuildings.

We are enthusiastic history fans, and we love being able to share our antique 1780's Colonial home in coastal Maine, and now our Biscuit Box style cabin in Western Bay, Newfoundland, with others who appreciate historic homes. Warren is Music Director at a local UCC/UMC church in Maine, so that is where we are most of the year. We are thrilled to have found the cabin overlooking Western Bay, where most of our neighbors are related to Warren's family and we can hear the surf through our windows.
