The best B&B ever! Fabulous hosts, great breakfasts- eggs, bacon, toast, 4 different jams, berries, grapes, bananas, muffins, cereals & yogurt 👍. Gorgeous house and fabulous views. We had the king room with ensuite - great bed, beautiful linens and a view to die for! Plan on doing an Eco Zodiak tour while you're there - we saw about a...

My husband were extremely happy in our four nights at Elaine's last week. The house is beautiful, our room was comfortable, breakfast was generous and delicious, the location right on the water can't be beat, and Elaine is a friendly, accommodating host. (Also smart, funny and a whirlwind of energy.) We stayed in Room 3, which I'm guessing is the...

Very good,immaculate B & B with an amazing view over the ocean & ecological reserve. We saw many whales whilst enjoying coffee on the balcony after breakfast. We spent 3 nights after touring around the Avalon peninsular. Breakfast was ample with freshly baked muffins & fresh fruit. The only suggestion I have would be to perhaps vary the menu a...

An exceptional B&B in Newfoundland overlooking the ocean. Breakfasts are delicious and sumptuous with host Elaine baking fresh muffins every morning. The views of the Ecological Reserve from the huge dining-room windows are spectacular or you can relax on the decks with your morning coffee. In season, you may see whale spouts in the bay. Rooms are large and immaculate,...

We arrived at Elaine's and were taken aback by the beautiful view. During the evening we enjoyed sitting outside over looking the ocean with a glass of wine. The room was comfortable, spacious, clean and with an amazing view of the bay. I met Elaine in the morning and we watched the whales enter the bay while sipping coffee. Breakfast...

The view is spectacular . As you sit in the sitting room you can look one way and see a scattering of houses, look another and see lobster traps. Look out on the bay and may see otters or seals even whales and loons. The hosts are fantasy and will stop what they are doing to visit or play a...

A lovely facility. The individual rooms are great but adding to the homey feeling is the warm and welcoming common sitting room with wood burning heat stove. Both nights many of the guest would gather, share wine, and talk of the days activities. A great view (if not fogy) of the bay and Gull Island. Wonderful breakfast with a wide...
