The room, bath, bed all very nice. The home has a lot of historical significance and interesting pieces on the walls. Garry and Shelly fantastic hosts, and provide a nice touch with tea and sweets in evening, for guests to meet each other, and chat about their travels if they wish. Breakfast is individualized to your taste and time and... More

Garry and Shelly were friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and provided a wonderful experience in a historic house restored to its original condition with modern amenities. We could not be more pleased with the house, the owners, and the beautiful sites on the Bonavista Peninsula, situated between Trinity and Bonavista Cape.

Garry and Shelley are consummate hosts. We felt at home from the moment we arrived, and the Newfoundlander Suite made us feel like dignitaries. A very nice extra touch is the 8:30pm gathering for all guests, with tea, sweets, and cheese and crackers. We got to know Garry and Shelley better in a relaxed setting. On our second night, a...

Gary immediately greeted us by our name, helped us with our luggage, recommended the places to eat. What a welcome! And the evening get together is the best way to learn about life in NFL, with other (local) guests sharing their experience, and visiting guests giving their recommendations. A memorable night and stay in NewFinland ( those who we shared... More

We spent 4 nights at Captain Blackmore's B + B. The location was perfect to tour the area from Trinity to Bonavista. Shelly and Gary treat you like family ..... great rooms and breakfasts (your choices from an extensive menu). We felt comfortable and we were able to relax when we got back to the B+B. The evening chats were... More

This was our very first experience at a Bed and Breakfast. Gary set the bar extremely high. The house is amazing and the welcome that we got from Gary was fabulous (we did not get to meet Shelly). The hospitality, the local information, the wonderful gathering for tea in the evening to chat with other guests, the breakfast, the view... More

We stayed for three nights in June, 2015. Gary and Shelly are the most hospitable and helpful hosts one could ever want. Made to order delicious hot breakfast in the morning, tea/coffee with snacks and wonderful conversation in the evening. The home has been lovingly restored and is perched at the water's edge. Our room had a fabulous, huge balcony... More

With love Garry restored the victorian house of his grandfather. The hospitality of Garry and Shelly is without borders: every evening they invited all the guests for an drink and a snack: we had a lot of interesting chats around the table. This was one of the best b&b's from our trips in Canada. Don't hesitate book at b&bcanada.ca Best... More

I stayed here with my kids in August. We had a great time. Gary was very helpful suggesting things to see in the nearby area. I think he sensed my kids were getting a little restless! The town of Port Union was very interesting, a must see. At breakfast the next morning, Shelly told some of the history, obviously very... More
