We chose Marilyn’s B&B based on Tripadvisor reviews and were delighted when the reality exceeded our expectations. Marilyn is a knowledgeable, friendly and unobtrusive host. At Wiliam’s Rest is gorgeous and the absence of light pollution allows you to enjoy the stars at night on her covered veranda. In the morning, we rose early to explore the area surrounding her...

Your jaw will drop when you first arrive at “At William’s Rest”. The B&B is perched high a cliff overlooking Salmon Cove beach. It’s as if you’ve been parachuted into one of those seductive Newfoundland Tourism ads; and, indeed you have, because two of them were filmed there. We stayed three nights and would have happily stayed longer. Salmon Cove...

Lovely, well appointed rooms. Home was clean, decorated with tasteful pieces of furniture and art. Guests also have access to a great library. The host was most welcoming, and provided helpful information regarding the area. Would certainly recommend this B&B to friends and family, and we would love to go back! It was a delightful find

Our visit to this spot set the bar high for our first weekend in Newfoundland. Marilyn, the host has built, in Salmon Cove, a beautiful, whimsical, well-appointed resting place that provides an amazing view, wonderful food, and warm Newfoundland hospitality. Marilyn suggested the best place to eat supper in town (Carbonear) - Foon's, which offers the finest cod dinner we...

Place is clean and tidy with amazing views. Good breakfast and a non intrusive host. Great location will go back for sure! The beach is a short distance away and easy to go to carbonear for some meals.

This is a fabulous spot to relax! The B&B was very clean, the ambiance cozy. It only has two rooms, both upstairs, but they are big with large clean ensuite bathrooms. We booked both rooms and our girls 13yrs and 8yrs took one and my husband and I the other. This was fabulous because as we were the only guest...

At William's Rest is a cozy, comfortable retreat at a beautiful spot right above a sandy beach in Salmon Cove. The front porch has an incredible view of the cove with sea birds and wild flowers right around us. We had a restful stay and a delicious breakfast!

At Williams Rest sits atop the hill in Salmon Cove, overlooking the cove itself and provides one of the nicest views in the area. This B&B only has two guest rooms but they are both huge and are beautifully furnished, immaculate and very comfortable. A comfortable and large sitting room is also available for guests as is a small fridge...
