Hi and welcome to
Josie's Bed & Breakfast and the Pike's Arm Museum!
The community of Pike's Arm was settled in the early 1800's.
In 1836, there were 33 people in six families recorded in the area. The Arm
offered a small but safe boat harbour with easy access to the nearby fishing
grounds. Early family names at Pike's Arm included Stuckey, Cutler and
Richards whose descendants still reside there today. Reginald Stuckey, one
of those descendants, is heavily involved with his beloved community and
helped to found the museum along with some of the other locals. He is a
great lover of traditional Newfoundland music and can often be heard playing
for anyone, anytime, anywhere! He along with his wife, Josephine, have
recently opened their home as a bed and breakfast.
Upon arrival, you will find yourself heavily immersed
in the way of Newfoundland. The house sits atop a sloping hill which
overlooks the small harbour and offers a typical yet awesome view of rural
Josie's Bed & Breakfast offers
2 bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. A complimentary
continental breakfast is included with your stay. One of the most unique
features of your stay here is that Reginald, the owner, can play traditional
music or you can purchase his CD, "MY LITTLE HOME TOWN".

Pike's Arm Museum
The Pike's Arm Museum has been
placed in a century old home and decorated with time-period furniture.
Discover the history of Sir William Ford Coaker who, at the age of 16, came
to Pike's Arm to manage the store for the McDougall and Templeman Company of
St. John's. He became an advocate of the fishery and held the first meeting
of the Fishermen's Protective Union.
A must-see is the walking trail
which starts from the museum and leads to a breathtaking view of the area.
See the Baccalhao Island lighthouse along with nearby Herring Neck and
Twillingate from the lookout at the top of the trail. At the base of the
trail, see and feed the ducks in their natural habitat and take the children
to the nearby Pooh-Land Playground and picnic area.
*Pike's Arm Lookout and Museum is
a joint effort of the Twillingate, New World Island, Change Islands
Development Association and the Pike's Arm Recreation Committee.
