Lloyd (Pa) Benson, my great grandfather, was born on Grand Manan as were his parents before him. On May 12, 1912, he moved his wife and young family into their new two storey home located at 11 Benson Lane in Seal Cove.
The upstairs contains four bedrooms all decorated with the original furniture. One bedroom has a queen bed, two of the other rooms have one double each while the fourth has two single beds. Bed linens are provided. A deep closet was remodeled and now contains a 1/2 bath. A real plus. Towels and facecloths are provided.
The main floor consists of a living room, dining room, kitchen, full bath and sun porch.
The large bright kitchen has seating for six at the table and a full size fridge, stove and microwave. The old style pantry is fully equipped with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, toaster and coffee pot. All the essentials and more.
The basement has a newly refinished, three-piece bathroom and complete laundry facilities, including an ironing board and iron. Guests can access the backyard from the basement allowing for bikes and kayaks to be put under cover easily.
As the sun rises up over White Head Island in the morning enjoy its splendor from the sun porch. Watch, nestled up with your coffee, as the boats steam out of the harbour and head off for another day on the water. Relax. Unwind. Savour the quiet and the natural beauty of the land.Pa’s Place is an ideal family vacation spot with lots of room inside and out for both the energetic and easygoing. Come and enjoy our island in the comfortable quarters of Pa’s Place.
