Hi! We are Matt and Sarah, we started Black Duck Cottages in the fall of 2021, our passion for the outdoors and Newfoundland led the way for this venture.

We love the outdoors and spending time at our own cabin with our son Jack, and dog Molson, so much we wanted to be able to share this experience with people near and far.

We believe Gambo has so much to offer, and we invite you to come and see for yourself. We live just across the street and are always available, whether it be directions to a prime local fishing hole, or being able to show you one of our popular walking or atv/snowmobile trails.

Come see our beauty, and what makes us cottage country. 


Located on the main road in the heart of Gambo, approximately 5kms from the Trans Canada Highway.

Black Duck Cottages also sits a mere 500 meters from the Newfoundland T’railway and on the grassy shores of Freshwater Bay.

The perfect location for any outdoor getaways.
