As everyone else had mentioned, I think that the hosts made this stay special, and the extra bonus of entertainment after breakfast makes it very memorable. Yes, the rooms are nice, the beds comfortable, the bathrooms are good and the breakfast tasty and plentiful, but really, Maureen and Keith, as well as Keith's brother Eric, a wonderful photographer, really stand...

Bed was comfy, food amazing and the entertainment was top notch! Didn't expect to be entertained at breakfast but they did a great job. It was really nice to sit around the table with all the people staying there and then the treat of the Ugly Sticks. Definitely a place to stay at if you're in Bonavista.

Terrific experience with the folks at the Puffins Landing BnB. We had a fantastic time with the host; the accommodation was great, excellent breakfast with entertainment from the host and hostess (Newfie songs and show). Very helpful and friendly folks. Even showed us around town and vicinity of various sites (to watch whales and puffins).

We went to this spot today and were able to see many, many puffins at a close distance and spotted about 8 whales as well. The man working there was extremely friendly and informative. It's free but donations are welcomed. We ended up giving 20$ because we had such a great experience.
