Hi and welcome to Serenity Cottage!

Serenity Cottage is located in the small community of Hillgrade, off route 340 passing through Summerford and Virgin Arm, exiting at Hillgrade East onto Country Road, approximately one kilometer from the highway.

Stay at Serenity Cottage and enjoy nature's beauty. Walk along the beach or take a stroll down Country Road and hear the sweet song of nature. Enjoy a fire on the beach as the sun sets and don't forget your wieners and marshmallows!

Experience the peace and tranquility of outport life from a home that was originally built in the early fifties. Serenity Cottage was built by the late Mr. Gordon Sansome. His wife, Mrs. Alma Sansome, served as post-mistress for 37 years. The post office served the residents of nearby communities and was run from a small building that was once attached to Serenity Cottage. It has since been removed but the remaining house is much the same as it was.

The cottage is your window to the ocean and you may catch a glimpse of a passing whale or even an iceberg which are common through the months of May and June. Take a short stroll from the front door and find yourself at Hillgrade's Super Lobster pool. Order a fresh cooked lobster, bring it back to the cottage and enjoy the mouth watering taste of Atlantic lobster.
