Dildo (yes, that's the real name) is where my mother grew up, so I'm very familiar with it. I remember when this house was a family home and housed the village post office. It has been beautifully restored and added to, and is now a delightful, top-notch b&b. We had a fabulous dinner there and walked the village in the... More

The Inn by the Bay was a pleasure after driving through the remote areas of eastern and southern Newfoundland. To our surprise here was the very elegantly appointed B & B with a view of the bay and lovely sunset. The food was... More

My suite ~ the "Joan Morrissey room" was named after Colleen's Mom who was a very famous and loved singer in Nfld. The room was tastefully decorated ~ so... More

what a wonderful place! We (myself and two colleagues) were in Saint Johns for a friends wedding and stayed one night at the Inn - owners are warm and friendly, they make you feel like you are at home. The food is outstanding - dinner menu definitely 5 star and home cooked breakfast was amazing. Just wish it was closer... More

We went as a birthday party of 9. The service was excellent and I had the best chicken linguine EVER. The ages in our group ranged from14 to 89 and everyone raved about the food. Beautiful location, cozy dining room, excellent staff and FANTASTIC food. What more can I say? Two thumbs up from my wife and I.
