Just south of St John's is a gem of a B&B run by a wonderful couple. Witless Bay is within easy reach of St John's but far enough away to experience non-urban Newfoundland. Puffins & whales are nearby in the ecological preserve. Ferryland dinner theatre, Cape Race are also within an easy drive. Try it you'll like it.

My friend and I were hiking the East Coast Trail and decided to treat ourselves to a night in a B&B, and stopped here almost randomly. We are so glad we did. The beds were so comfy! The bedrooms were quite spacious and had a homey feeling. Since we were hiking and had no mode of transport, it was also... More

Very nice couple. Rooms were clean. Up the hill so there is a view. Not too far out of St. John's. Very friendly town stayed for two nights. We only phoned 2 days ahead Great breakfast They also run the Sapphire pub. Fresh seafood and chowder all made right there.

Bear's Cove Inn is a pleasant stay within a short drive from St-John's. We stayed in one of the ocean view rooms which was very nice, however the inn is located across the road from the ocean so the view is partially blocked. The room had a balcony, unfortunately the weather was too cool for us to take advantage of... More

We booked three suites For our 7 night stay. My grandmother really appreciated the ramp to get into the Inn since stairs are a challenge at times. The accessible room was perfect with the walk in shower and hand rail. The only negative about this suite is the thermostat is awkwardly positioned behind the mirror attached to the dresser. you...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in August, 2014. Our room was comfortable, the breakfast was very good, and both Clayton and Tammy were helpful and informative during our first time visit in Newfoundland. There is a very scenic hiking trail just a half mile from the B&B. When we expressed our fondness for their local partridge... More

We stayed here for four nights. The inn is very cozy, reminds me of being at the cottage. Lots of wood furniture, amazingly comfy beds!! Tammy and Clayton are so friendly, we really enjoyed our stay. Be sure to check out he Sapphire Pub as well, just up the road! :)

The location is perfect for people looking for hiking opportunities and boat tours of whales and puffins. Our cook (Clayton) and hostess (Tammy) were some of the warmest people you could meet on the planet. Great spot!

I spent two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The first night I was in Room 1, a lovely room with a view of the bay from the balcony. The second night I was in Room 3 (Room 1 had been reserved by another guest). Room 3 was also lovely, with a neat view of the bay from the... More

This B&B is very clean. Our room was small but attractive and we used the common area to watch TV. Only half an hour from airport on Bay Bulls. Very basic breakfast although breakfast room is very attractive & Server was very pleasant. Great for one night! But would recommend another choice for stays of 2 nights or more.
