Région touristique : Eastern Newfoundland
Nestled in the town of Brigus, on Conception Bay, Newfoundland, Hawthorne Cottage is the home of Captain "Bob" Bartlett, Canada's greatest ice navigator. The cottage tells the story of his many Arctic Voyages, and also the story of the Cottage. Built in 1830, the cottage was dragged to its present location in 1835. It is one of the few remaining examples of the picturesque "Cottage orne" style of architecture.
