This historic house is centrally located within walking distance of everything we wanted to do while in St. John's. Earl was super helpful in recommending things to do, places to eat and other little tips for our stay. Breakfast was excellent and changed each day. We stayed on the top floor which did get hot at night. I would definitely... More

Beautiful historic home. Stayed there twice while in St John's and would recommend to anyone who appreciates a fabulous location, excellent historical value and a very informative host. I don't think you could find a better location as we were in walking distance to downtown and many excellent historical sites

Earl was a genial, helpful host with a relaxed, friendly style, keen to volunteer information on where to go, eat, etc., and we... More

We stayed 3 nights in total at this delightful B&B. Lovely old historic house, very comfortably furnished and little extras like tea, coffee and homemade buns freely available were much appreciated. Earl and Helen were welcoming and friendly hosts and did cook the most delicious breakfasts!

We stayed 4 nights at this beautiful history B&B in St. John's. during July, 2016. Our host was most welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. We enjoyed each tasty breakfast and lively conversations with other happy guests. It was the best B&B on this 2.5 week trip in Newfoundland. We would stay there again for sure.

We stayed here for our wedding night, and the accommodations were perfect - beautiful historic manor in our wonderful city, very clean and comfortable.

This location is an easy walk downtown or stay up on the ridge and walk along looking at the lovely homes and gardens. Breakfast is enjoyably shared which I really enjoyed as I was travelling along. After a few days of pleasant accommodation I left St.John's late in the evening. I appreciated using the lower level of the house for... More
