If you want to get a taste of rural Newfoundland, this is a special place to stay. Proprietor, Doreen makes each guest feel welcome and maintains a very clean and pleasant place. She is more than happy to recommend places to see, including ice berg sightings, and where to go to get that special meal or buy that special item.... More

The rooms were lovely but i found the mattresses had seen better days..The owner had the place for sale and was away at the time of our stay..Cavell was very entertaining but I expected that the experience would be what we saw online...A little pricey for what we got..

Our group of two couples had a wonderful time with Doreen at this very pretty B&B in the "middle of nowhere but near the Trans Canada highway." The rooms were comfortable, and the "kitchen party in the evening" was a lot of fun. We did not have any such event at the other B&B's we stayed at during our holiday.... More

It was a pleasure to return to this b&b located in a quiet spot in the countryside, not too far from the Trans Canada Highway but far enough away not to hear it. We enjoyed a peaceful night's sleep on an extremely comfortable bed in a spacious room with an ensuite. Darlene is a warm and fun hostess who reminded... More

Doreen Canning is such a warm person and excellent cook. We were surprised with a home-cooked dinner--cod au gratin with a green and apple salad and toasted Parmesan bread followed by a partridgeberry trifle. The breakfast next morning was the best pancake breakfast we ever had--a stack of pancakes with lots of blueberries and other fruit and delicious back bacon.... More

The building, rooms, grounds are typical B&B. What makes this special is the hostess/owner. She welcomes you to her home, gives good advice regarding local attractions and restaurants, serves a great breakfast and entertains with the singing of Newfoundland songs.

Aug 2, 2014 We recently stayed at the Springdale NL Indian Brook B and B. The room itself was fine (with en suite) but we were not very happy with the feeling of being at "home" or the breakfast. Doreen asked us in the evening if we liked homemade pancakes and Ham. Three of the five people in our group... More

Large, comfortable room. Fresh fruit served at breakfast, which is a plus. Minor remark: I specifically booked and got confirmed the Newfoundland room. Upon arrival the hostess led us to our room "Here is your room, the Labrador", so I said we reserved the Newfoundland room and got as reply "Yes, and I kept you the Labrador one", without any...

We stay on July 9th. Lovely country home with very comfortable rooms. Doreen Canning is a very warm and fun hostess. Her breakfast was lovely...pancakes with lots of fruit and yogourt. Doreen also cooks supper if requested. She entertains with her ugly stick, and dancing man. Fun time. Springdale, only a few minutes drive away has a lovely boardwalk and... More

Wish we could have stayed with Doreen much longer. Beautiful home, impeccably clean and beyond comfortable. She went out her way to make our stay outstanding. Breakfast was such a treat, real yummy. Wish I had that touch. Morning entertainment with spoons, dancing men and her ugli-stick provided a very happy start for the day ahead. This truly was, a... More
