In the late eighties, as an alternative to demolishing the hydro plant operatorís house and cabin, the Company opted to let the P30 Club, now known as the Newfoundland Power Trailblazers Association, operate them and maintain them for the benefit of all employees and retirees. Since then a lot of work has been done to the facilities to maintain them in reasonable good condition, including the addition of a second floor to create an extra two bedrooms and new furniture throughout. Every year members of the Trailblazers sacrifice countless hours to make the facility just a little bit better.

Any employees or ex employees of the Company who wish to spend a few vacation days in the tranquility of country-style living at minimal cost are asked to contact Nick Aylward. The facilities are booked on a first come first served basis.

Before leaving, users are asked to restore the facilities to a clean and neat condition and to report problems to Leroy Hynes or Cyril Langdon or Gordon Goulding or Frank Freeman in Norris Arm.

Request for Booking

Nick has retired from NP at the end of 2017 but he has agreed to continue looking after the bookings and rental payments; however, you need to know that he may not be as easy to contact as he was as an employee and, depending where you live, you may incur long distance charges if you use the phone. For this reason, we have added a RATTLING BROOK REQUEST FORM to this website that you can use to book requests. To do this click HERE.

 

If you prefer to contact Nick directly for bookings, you can use his cell phone number (709) 693-6996, or his email nick@aylwardsdesignsplus.ca

 

As for Rental Payments, cash is no longer acceptable. You can mail him a cheque at:

Nick Aylward

P.O. Box 97

Witless Bay

A0A 4K

Or Nick can set up email transfers if you prefer this method of payment.

 From May 1 to October 31 each of the three units (house downstairs, house upstairs, cabin) is rented by the week at the weekly rate of $120 for Trailblazers members and $150 for non-members. At other times of the year the facilities are rented by the day at a daily rate of $30 each to a maximum of $120 per week ($150 for non-members).

 For the May 1 to October 31 period, preference for bookings is given to Trailblazers members by letting them  book the facilities prior to May 1 of each year if they so wish; non-members can book only between May 1 and October 31 of the year during which they use the facilities.

Rental fees are payable before occupancy.
