PRESS RELEASE: Elizabeth J. Cottages puts charming historic Bonavista, Newfoundland and Labrador on the world stage

ElizabethJCottages The 2005 Summer Issue of TORO MAGAZINE featured ELIZABETH J. COTTAGES Bonavista, Newfoundland and Labrador as one of the top 11 Destinations in the world for Honeymooners.

This is good news for Bonavista and for The Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Elizabeth J. Cottages, the brainchild of Elizabeth J. Zemdegs, started as a vision after Elizabeth J. and her husband visited Newfoundland and Labrador on a one-week holiday in June 2003. It was love at first sight. The night before they returned to Ontario, property was purchased on the ocean thinking it would be their summer home.

However, destiny intervened and Elizabeth J. and her husband decided to move permanently to Bonavista. Elizabeth J. became fascinated with Newfoundland and Labrador’s history, especially that of the Bonavista Peninsula. After hearing many stories of the demise of so many historical houses due to emigration Elizabeth J. had a vision in November 2003 to build new 18th Century Newfoundland and Labrador Architectural Historic Houses. Bonavista would regain lost architecture and tourists would have an accommodation that would transport them back in history.

On July 8th 2004, eight months later, Elizabeth J. Cottages, awarded 4 ½ stars by Canada Select opened the 1st Salt Box Cottage to the tourists. In August 12, 2004 the Steep Gable Roof Cottage opened. Sitting on a cliff right on the ocean, Elizabeth J. Cottages boasts of one of the most luxury filled cottages in all of Newfoundland and Labrador. Persian rugs, fireplaces, window box seats, fully loaded kitchen, living room and dining room, Jacuzzi, 2 bedroom Queen-sized Sleigh beds with 450 thread Egyptian Cotton linens, award winning local furniture and personal art collection. All windows lead to the ocean in both sound and sight. Watch Whales and Icebergs, unbearably beautiful sunsets, the cliffs off in the distance and uninterrupted horizon all at ones feet from large wooden decks furnished with the famous Muskoka chairs.

Elizabeth J. Cottages, seven months later was nominated in 2005 for the prestigious Hospitality Newfoundland and Labrador Orchid Award.

      Thank you so much for your comment. Creating, owning and passionate about people, their lives, hopes dreams I am sending a lot of time actually talking to people in hospital and on the street as well as in my shop, Gallery and cottages! I even took out Stitches from a tourists forehead. She was waiting for 3 hrs and brought the sterile package of stitch removal scissors etc. I put on gloves had her take a seat on my stool and viola! Out! I am now focusing more on my website – I worked all hours on Facebook with 2 major groups 28,000 and 32000 in each group fight and educate Canadians to Vote ABC. We won – you all won and We Canadians stood up and Voted NO to Dictators – Harper was our most obvious and look how far he got in destroying as many of our Sr.Trudeau bests -Creating our Rights and Freedoms Act – and so many sneaky deals that we will only find out as time goes on. He almost interfered with the Supreme Court taking away its Independent decisions – we almost died as Canada to all. Again thanks and keep commnenting about anything I am writing!
