Perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean and a sandy beach, this is a quiet, peaceful, and meditative spot. Breakfast was delicious- Marilyn asked the day before what we would prefer for hot items, and there were plenty of cold items. This was the cleanest B&B I've ever stayed at, and if I ever return to Newfoundland, I'll return to... More

No one can deny the beautiful view over the harbour - wish I could have seen the low tide heart-shaped beach- and no one could find fault with the lovely, spacious bedrooms,or the overall cleanliness of the entire house. And while breakfast was lovely (but nothing that sets it apart from other good B&Bs)...there was still something missing...no sense of... More

We just returned from two weeks in Newfoundland and one of our favourite stops was At William's Rest. It is a beautiful location and Marilyn our host made us feel very welcome and offered us plenty of information about the area. The house is beautifully decorated. The rooms are large and very clean and comfortable. We sat on benches on... More

While we were in Newfoundland we booked a two day stay At William's Rest in Salmon Cove. What a magnificent place. Perched on a hilltop overlooking the bay it is truly beautiful. Marilyn, our host , knows the area well and sent us to some interesting destinations along the Baccalieu Trail. The room also had your breakfast included which were... More

Nestled at the top of the hill, this B&B is lovely, unique, and spacious. Just standing on the porch delivers a vast scene of landscape, beach, rock, mountain and water. A large porch wish chairs to relax and take in the view or to have a chat, or do some reading. There are some benches down a little path that... More

Wonderful place with a view that takes your breath away. Marilyn is a wonderful hostess with plenty of suggestions of what to see and do in the area. This is a definite place to come back. Sorry to have to leave after only 2 nights.

Not far from St. John's, nestled in the cliffs of Salmon Cove with a breathtaking view and fresh air. Greeted with a hug from owner Marilyn. Beautifully decorated newer home. Very comfortable, spacious room and bathroom. Spotlessly clean. Could have sat on the porch for hours. Fabulous breakfast: yes, the blueberry pancakes and moose meat sausages were delicious. Curled up... More

Where to begin? Location, location, location this B&B has it. It is a little difficult to get to due to construction when we were there but our hosts provided a map on how to get to the property. When we arrived, the view was breathtaking. After the initial view was taken in, we were greeted by our hostess and she... More

Marilyn and William are wonderfully friendly and helpful. If you can, get them talking about *their* interests, too. They're a fascinating couple. Although the hosts have a cat, they keep the critter totally away from the guests, even the cat lovers, like me. My wife wasn't even aware that there was a cat beyond the many pieces of cat sculpture... More
