We stayed at Entente Cordiale for two nights in mid August as part of a tour of Western Newfoundland. The inn is located on a long beach facing the Gulf of St. Lawrence with the mouth of a small creek bordering the property on one side. There is no other development nearby. Overall, a spectacular setting. It was very windy when we were there, and went to sleep to the sound of the crashing surf. The beds were comfortable, although the rooms and bathrooms were pretty basic. We had an ensuite bathroom, but some other rooms had to share facilities. The staff exemplified Newfoundland hospitality, and the meals were excellent. Breakfast is included but you can also have dinner if you reserve in the morning. We were travelling with our nine year old son, and we're a little concerned about how he would make out staying in B&Bs. We shouldn't have worried - he was made most welcome at Entente Cordiale and other placed we stayed.
