Welcome to Riverwood House and Cottages. Riverwood is more then lodging, it is a destination! We offer cozy, quiet lodging in a country garden setting. A friendly and knowledgeable host will assist you in planning your encounter with the soft and soothing southwestern edge of the “Rock.”

Perhaps you are an amateur rock hound and would enjoy a day trip to the Ship Cove fossil bed or a walk upstream in Crabbes River where you can observe the wonders of water as it sculpts its way through a deposit of blue banded gypsum. Numerous local pebble beaches will provide hours of activity to the beachcomber and rock hound in search of a special natural souvenir.

Whether your passion is salmon fishing or trouting, the host is a licensed guide who can take you to pools and ponds in the local area. We have canoe rentals available to our guests, some restrictions apply. To ensure availability, please book in advance.

At Riverwood you can take a full range of walking /hiking experiences. From the leisurely three kilometer walk to the extreme five-day marine mountain coastal hike, guests at Riverwood can use the host as a guide or resource person to plan their excursions.

Is mountain biking more your twist? With advanced booking we can plan day trips to the Anguille Mountains.

For such an adventure, contact the host for greater detail. For the more sedated biking experience, we have a limited number of bike rentals that are suitable for the local roads.

Riverwood house and cottages is just five hundred meters from the Newfoundland Trailway. ATV enthusiasts  and other users of the T'Railway  are welcome.  Use the host as a guide or an information source  on the T'Rrailway  and how to  connect to the network of forest access roads.

Closer to home, the host pursues his interest in the craft of twig furniture making. If you have a desire to learn how to construct this unique home and garden furniture, spend some time at Riverwood. Twig Furniture projects are found throughout the grounds. Consult the host or take a look at the in house catalogue for items that are available for purchase.
