Jimmie's Plce is up the hill, luckily they tell you to keep going. It is well worth it. They have only a couple of rooms but they also have a good restaurant.
There are only about 6-7 stairs to go down from the parking lot to the B&B and restaurant. We were very pleased with our room. Everything was clean and looked freshly painted too. Beds were very comfortable and bathroom was nicely stocked and quite large.
The restaurant had wonderful cod & chips. They were both cooked perfectly. Plus they had malt vinegar & tarter sauce too. They were out of Pea soup the first day. But agreed to make a batch for the next day. Because my husband has to maintain a low sodium diet they even made sure they didn't use the salted pork. It was delicious, too. Full bar with the restaurant too.
Breakfasts were large and plentiful and they had the best hash browns.
The views from here are spectacular. You can see ocean on two sides and we had an amazing sunset too. Pauline, the owner told us to make ourselves at home. We did not need to stay in our room. They had a very nice back deck that also afforded the view I mentioned earlier.
Sunday night we ended up with a kitchen party right there. It was so much fun. Great people, good music, and fun times.
Loved this B & B and restaurant!

We had dinner at Jimmy's on our first foggy night in the area. They were highly recommended by the B&B in Grate's Cove at which we were staying. So off we went to Bay de Verde and asked our dining room hostess what she would suggest. Pan fried cod was the answer, and it was glorious. During our conversations, we learned that Bay de Verde was a crab fishing village ... yet we observed that crab wasn't on the menu. "Ah, if you would really like some, I can arrange that!", our hostess replied. So ... the next day found us back for lunch and a beautiful platter of delicious crab and salad. Jimmy's Place staff went above and beyond. A truly excellent experience!

Bay de Verde is a special place and Jimmy's is even more special! We came for a weekend out of season and were the only guests. Pauline made us the best fish and chips of our 3 month trip to Newfoundland and one of the best breakfasts of my life! The room was cozy and warm and so were the hosts. Can't recommend enough!

You will be pleasantly surprised. We're not big on B and B but this one was absolutely perfect for us. Room was exceptionally clean and practical. Bed was very comfortable. The view from the patio; priceless. Can't say enough about the service and hospitality. The meals we had were absolutely delicious. We were made to feel at home. Highly recommend this place. You will not be disappointed.

Fabulous night stay. GREAT hospitality, the room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. The down home meals - delicious!
Thank you Pauline and staff for a great experience.
Now if you could only control the weather - would have loved to had the Bay de Verte experience with sunshine.

My wife and I stayed at Jimmy’s Place during a tour around the Baccalieu trail. Had a wonderful time. Pauline, Jen and family were so friendly and welcomed us like we weee family. We ended up staying a 2nd night and did some cod jigging. Lovely dinner and breakfast served with a smile. The place was clean and comfortable. We travel a lot and were so impressed with the hospitality. Great to have conversations with them, and makes you feel touched by local Newfoundlanders. Well worth a stay.

We felt so welcomed and at home here. We only spent one night but Pauline and her family made us feel like family too. A genuine Newfoundland treasure, one of the highlights of our trip. We would stay here again for sure.

Pauline Sutton, owner of Jimmy's place, is accommodating & helpful. As there are no restaurants, only a small convenience store in Bay de Verde. dinner could be a problem, but with advance notice, Pauline whips up a tasty meal for a reasonable extra charge. She pointed out sites--iceberg in inner bay, humpbacks spouting in the outer bay, & the restored, historic heritage house all visible from the deck.

She indicated picturesque Red head Cove & Grates Bay, both nearby, that would offer good walking & vistas.

Her B & B is a restored & renovated,salt box house with a story. She has transformed the place into a comfortable & welcoming place. You feel right at home.

We stopped there for a late lunch on our motorcycle trip around Newfoundland. What a beautiful place! Wish we could have stayed there longer. Lunch was very good, we had cod fish and chips and the fish burger. Excellent! We finished our lunch with a very good partridgeberry tart and ice cream. All food homemade and tasty! We had a nice little chat with the owner who was so nice. Even got a hug before heading back on the road! Can’t ask for more! Thank you for your great hospitality!

Pauline and Jennifer are special hosts that make you feel right at home. The rooms are cosy and tidy and the meals are generous and delicious. If there's fresh cod for their fish and chips, you're in for a treat. We were lucky to find Jimmy's Place while touring with friends from Ontario; Bay de Verde is a beautiful area to explore.
