My husband and I stayed at this beautiful B&B in mid October 2021. Our lives were torn apart from the passing of our youngest daughter to cancer just a little while before that and needed a nice place to go and have a stress free break. We arrived very late from Vancouver and were greeted by the nephew of the owners. He was so nice showed us around the main floor of the house and took our bags up to our room on the top floor. The room was huge with a queen bed that had premium bedding and was such a luxury to get into after a long day sightseeing. The bathroom was huge with a big soaker tub that would easily allow for a tall person to stretch out in. The room was sparking clean and very comfortable. We met Janet and Garry the next morning at breakfast. They were both very nice and such gracious hosts. The breakfast was absolutely amazing. Janet went out of her way to make sure everything was tasting good. Everyday was something different and there was always fresh preserves, cheese, home baking, fruit and a main dish. The coffee was excellent. I loved the beautiful mugs and attention to detail in the set up of the table. The house itself is gorgeous and very well preserved. Janet and Garry were very helpful in telling us about the area around St. Johns and distances to places. We were only there for 4 nights so didn't have a bunch of time to see all we wanted to. We should have done our research better to book our holiday earlier say in September when the tourist season is wrapping up. Having gone in mid October, we found many of the shops in the smaller communities closed for the off season. We made the best of it and visited the small communities anyway which were very beautiful and made for excellent picture taking. I would highly recommend this beautiful B&B to anyone wanting to go to St. John's. We would love to go back when we get the chance again.

We stayed two nights and had a great experience in room 4. Beautifully restored home from the 1890's with modern bathroom, Comfortable bed. Sitting area with dormer window. You need to be able to climb stairs - especially our room which was on the 3rd floor. No air conditioning but a good, quiet fan made the room comfortable for sleeping. Great continental breakfast with fresh pastries and homemade jam. Boiled eggs and cheese for protein. About a 10 minute walk to the downtown core. Complimentary on street parking pass provided by the property.
