Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve

Surrounded on three sides by cold waters from the Strait of Belle Isle, the peninsula of Burnt Cape has some of the most arctic conditions in Newfoundland. But it is exactly this cold climate, along with a unique landscape and calcium-rich soil, that allows northern plant species to grow here in a rich and rare variety. Located in the beautiful community of Raleigh.

Historic Community of Raleigh

Burnt Cape Cabins is located within a community which will surely capture your heart. In spite of it’s size, the town of Raleigh has a rich history which dates back to the eighteenth century. The existing stages and wharves serve as reminders that Raleigh was once the busiest fishing port on the Northern Peninsula, and its people have evolved from a rich ancestry and unique culture.
