St. Philip’s, Newfoundland
Canada’s easternmost island typically brings to mind windblown landscapes and fisherman’s sweaters, but the Beach House will make you think again. Perched on a rugged crag on the Avalon Peninsula, the red, Cape-style mansion has two whitewashed cottages and seven chocolate-hued suites—all with private patios that look out onto the Atlantic, where you can spot humpback and minke whales.
Don’t Miss: Renting a kayak for a trip to nearby Cape Broyle, where you’ll find hidden coves and waterfalls.
