Pirate's Peek gets its name from a community legend which tells the story of how pirates once vacated the property. Situated on one of the highest points in St. Phillips with a panoramic view of Conception Bay, it offered an excellent vantage point for Pirates to keep watch over ships entering the bay. The house, it is said, was built with pirate money and treasure and was constructed mostly of oak with window sills of marble. The original house was destroyed by fire on Guy Fawkes night in 1962. However, ruins of the concrete steps and pillars that once led up to the front of the majestic house still remain.

Pirates Peek is tastefully decorated and furnished for comfort, convenience, and style and is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need in a tranquil and cozy home away from home. Lounge upon the plentiful comfy furnishings while relaxing in front of the cozy inviting fireplace. Enjoy the spectacular, unobstructed, panoramic ocean view and beautiful vibrant sunsets from the large front deck, from wall to wall windows in the large living room, and from your bed in the master (queen) bedroom...all west facing. Enjoy your morning coffee/tea and morning and evening meals on the private east facing back patio or the west facing front deck while keeping an eye out for whales, porpoise and ice bergs (June to early July most opportune time for viewing icebergs).

With its fabulous ocean view, large fully appointed eat-in kitchen, large lounging area with generous seating, ample parking, and approximately 1/2 acre grassy outdoor recreation area, Pirates Peek would be an ideal venue for outdoor weddings and group functions. Situated in a private peaceful country setting yet conveniently located with many services and amenities nearby, Pirate's Peek Cottage is ideal accommodations for honeymooners, corporate stays, family vacations or for anyone that desires a private, peaceful getaway vacation in a pristine setting while providing all the amenities to ensure a pleasant stay.
