The Sunny Cottage Heritage Centre is the former residence of a local merchant, Mr. John Joe Rose, and in later years was inherited by the John B. Stewart family. Sunny Cottage was built in 1907 and is one of the largest Queen Anne-style houses in Newfoundland. This Registered Heritage Structure is now a museum with artifact displays depicting various themes of Harbour Breton's rich and colourful history.
Visit Sunny Cottage and taste traditional foods that we offer to tourists in our kitchen. Feel free to chat with our friendly staff.
In 1996, Sunny Cottage was the proud recipient of the prestigious Manning Award for the preservation and presentation of historic places.
