Elaine does an excellent job making guests feel welcome and is knowlegeable of the area. Her home is very clean and breakfast was very enjoyable especially engaging with other guests. Puffins are a major attraction and she arranged a zodiac trip to view Puffins and tour the shores by Bay Bulls. You can't go wrong if you stay at Elaine's.

We stayed with Elaine for 5 nights in late August and early September. Elaine operates a very pleasant B&B right by the sea which feels like being at home. Her breakfasts are excellent and varied. She takes the time to get to know her guests and is very helpful in providing information about what to see etc. We would definitely stay with Elaine again if we are back in the Witless Bay Area. Thank you Elaine!

We stayed there for three nights in late August. The location is only about a 40 minute drive from the St. John’s Airport. Worth the short drive to a location that is heaven. If you get room 1 like we did, you get a panoramic view of the bay. And the sunrises, wow! Elaine cooks a great breakfast. You will not go hungry. It carries you through to dinner. Her location is ideal. You can go into St. John’s for the day or you can opt to drive the Irish Loop and take in the many sights.

A very comfortable B&B, at the end of the lane and the focal point that allowed us to explore the St. John’s area easily! Elaine is the quintessential hostess, and could not do enough for us. We lucked out when we made blind arrangements to stay with Elaine (and Danny, her husband) for 5 nights. When they expanded the B&B several years ago, they made sure that when sitting at the dining room table, you could look out into Witless Bay. Using some binoculars, we saw an iceberg off in the distance, along with ocean freighters – in the inner bay, we would occasionally see Minke whales and various birds … and all this while enjoying a fantastic breakfast. Breakfasts consisted of freshly baked scrumptious muffins, add a couple of homemade jams, bowls of cereal, fruit, ambrosia salad, eggs (to order), bacon, toast, juices … and I am sure I am still forgetting other items! Rooms are clean, comfortable, spacious, with great views, windows that open – so you could fall asleep to the sound of the waves, ensuite bathrooms with showers and tubs, and beds that allowed for a great night’s sleep. Elaine and Danny’s son, Tyler, runs the family’s Ecotours Zodiac Adventures out to the world-renowned Witless Bay Ecological Reserve. “the acorn has not fallen far from the tree” Tyler is an incredible Tour Guide … ask Elaine to make reservations for you to enjoy the adventure! Elaine’s B&B By The Sea is one of the best B&B’s we have stayed in. Would we return? … in a heartbeat!

We spent two enjoyable nights at Elaine's. Nice big bed, spacious room with a comfy recliner, en-suite had a tub - a hot bath was great after a lot of hiking this week! The second night we watched the sunset with a drink from the chairs out front. Great breakfasts, typical hot breakfast with eggs, as well as fresh baked muffins and cereal as well if you want. Elaine and family were great friendly hosts. Elaine arranged for us to join the Ecotours boat tour the next day which was excellent, and saved me the time of booking since I had forgotten to do so before leaving home! Would stay again.
