Discover Port Union Bed & Breakfast
Nestled on the beautiful northeastern coast of Newfoundland, Port Union has a rich historical character and untold beauty that remains largely untouched and ready for discovery.
Port Union was home to the Fishermen’s Union Trading Company, which was established in 1910, and the remnants of their activities still remain in tact today, thanks to the Coaker Foundation’s restoration efforts. Along main street are various buildings that once serviced as stores and housing for the union, including the Manager’s House, which is now home to Port Union Bed & Breakfast. Many of the buildings along main street are estimated to have been built pre-1930, lending to the area’s extensive potential for historical appreciation and discovery. Though the Manager’s House has been restored, most of the pre-existing architecture has been retained, and it’s authentic beauty can be admired in the original wood flooring, doorways, staircase, and slate fireplaces.
To learn more about Port Union and the Fishermen’s Union history, be sure to check out the Coaker Foundation Museum (only a 3 minute walk from Port Union B&B), which offers tours and features artifacts that have been discovered in the area.
