The Keeper’s Kitchen grew from a deep desire to expose the natural beauty, culture, folklore, food-ways and heritage of the community of St. Shotts and Cape Pine Lighthouse.
Full of history, incredible natural beauty and the remnants of a traditional fishing village, this area is a hidden gem on the Southern Avalon of Newfoundland.
Combining simplicity with authenticity, The Keeper’s Kitchen is a five-room Bed & Breakfast and Live Music Venue that aims to engage and excite the senses through food, music, stories and art because that's the most fun way to learn about a place and its people.
We offer five guest rooms with a total capacity for 13 people. In 4/5 of our rooms you may choose either two-single bed setup or one-king bed setup. The Junior Suite has a queen-size bed.
Three of our guest rooms in the ground level basement have private ensuite washrooms. The other two rooms on the main level share a large washroom with accessibility features, plus one of these rooms has a 36 inch doorway. Breakfast is included with your stay.
Even in its original form, the house was built for a crowd and for music! Michelle’s father Michael was well known for entertaining visitors and Michelle herself is a singer/songwriter and recording artist.
As a live music venue for some of the province's finest entertainers,The Keeper's Kitchen carries the tradition of sharing cultural stories through music and song.
Both Michelle and Reidar are well seasoned cooks who enjoy experimenting with flavour profiles and infusing elements of their many travels (over 120 countries between them both) into their food.
Creating upscaled versions and new twists on familiar dishes is what they do best. Their food will excite your taste buds and leave you savouring every bite.
Michelle is a professional visual artist and holds certifications in Life Coaching and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Using art as a discovery tool, her clients learn to deeply connect with their inner wisdom and guidance.
The Keeper’s Kitchen has a 300 sq. ft art studio that is suitable for workshops and classes, as well as a space to let your creative soul play with texture, paints and tactile art.
The colourful, fragrant and bountiful marshlands surrounding The Keeper's Kitchen offer many varieties of wild berries. In season, it's possible to pick cloudberries (known as 'bakeapples' by Newfoundlanders), blueberries, partridge berries and marshberries literally just seconds outside the door.
Most would agree that the barrens hold a mystic unlike any other place. It is a haven for photographers and painters looking for inspiration.
The roaring surf and salty sea breeze are but a stone’s throw away from The Keeper’s Kitchen. Undoubtably, both the land and sea will speak to you on a soulful level. Just being here will awaken your spirit and excite your senses.
