“A fantastic stay in Bonavista - just amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Puffin's Landing was recommended to us by RJ Tours in St. John's and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Newfoundland and the Maritimes. Our one night stay in Bonafista turned into 3 nights because of the wonderful people we met at Puffin's Landing and their above and beyond hospitality. Maureen and Keith were great hosts, Keith's brother Eric (The "Puffin Man") was a great tour guide and advisor. Even Fred, the neighbor, went to the extent of cooking us a homemade cod dinner our last night there. The accomadations were great, breakfasts were wonderful, and the hospitality could only be said to be "True Newfoundland", which as we had been told goes to another level. Eric took us on a 4 1/2 hour trip out on the cliffs where the puffins nest, one of the most spectacular events of our whole trip. The help with planning and choosing where to go with the time we had helped us to make the most of our Newfoundland visit. Eric even made arrangemants with the Mayor of Bonavista one day and she provided the 3 couples staying at Puffin's a personally guided tour of the "Matthew", John Cabot's boat that sits in Bonavista, the building was closed for the season. We were even invited out for coffee with Eric and his wife at the local cafe and felt part of the community before we left. We will definetly return to Bonavista and will be staying at Puffin's Landing.
Once again, with gratitude and thanks,
Marilynn & Murray Ames

We were recommended this B&B by another satisfied customer, The hosts are lovely and genuine and their local knowledge and passion for their local area was infectious. The room was really comfortable and the breakfast was great.

We were welcomed at the B and B. The room was lovely with a comfortable bed. The hosts were fabulous and we really enjoyed going to Keith's "secret place!" We would stay at this B and B again. The hot breakfast was delicious. Keith and Maureen were able to provide lots of information about places to see and things to do in the area. The location of the B and B was also within walking distance of restaurants and other attractions such as the garrick Theatre.

The puffins Landing is the best place to stay when traveling to Bonavista. The town was nice and the accommodations were just as beautiful. The warm atmosphere of the B&B combined with the warm personalities of the hosts makes it the best place to stay. They treat their guest just like family and they were very helpful to my boyfriend who has a disability. The food was great and the conversations were entertaining. I would highly recommend this wonderful place to anyone staying in this area.
Thanks for the great memories,

We arrived at the B&B with our two kids and felt like family from the moment we arrived. The food was amazing, The rooms were clean and everything was a real treat. I would recommend this to anyone.
The fish cakes were fantastic and the blueberry toutons were very good.
My only worry is that the next time we return to Bonavista all the rooms will be full once word gets out about how great this place is.

Room Tip: All the rooms were great with there own bathrooms.

My friend and I visited puffins landing in May and was impressed with our hosts and how they welcomed us into their home. Keith went out of his way to show us the beautiful sights and made sure we saw the best of bonavista during our short stay. Maureen treated us to a lovely breakfast in the morning. Their smiles, warmth and little dog made us feel right at home.
Thanks! Laura & Lauren
