Cottlesville is a small rural community on Route 344 in Notre Dame Bay, Newfoundland, Canada. It has a population of approximately 250 friendly folks. It has breathtaking scenery, with rugged landscapes and peaceful harbours. Intricate Harbour, where some harbour front development is taking place, is one of the most sheltered harbours in Newfoundland. Luke’s Arm is a large sheltered inlet that can accommodate ships which draw thirty feet of water. Ideally located near the water, Cottlesville is an excellent place to view icebergs and whales. Cottlesville has a boat launch for smaller boats, to visit the nearby formerly inhabited islands, to fish for cod and to hunt turrs in the fall.
