“Our stay was too short at Five Oaks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2007

My sister and I stayed at Five Oaks Bed & Breakfast from September 11th through the 14th and when we loaded our luggage, we had tears in our eyes! Ann and Humphrey Dye were the most caring, entertaining and interesting people! They opened their home to us and make us feel warmly welcome! It was pure enjoyment to get up and sit at the the breakfast table with `ol Humphrey a.k.a. Moose between us while Ann took care of our every need. Then she would sit in her rocker next to the table and we all discussed what went on with us the previous day and they genuinely cared!!! Their garden which is beautifully manicured and lovingly cared for is a sight to behold and we loved wandering through it. We will always cherish the memories of our stay with Ann and Humphrey Dye and will keep in touch with them!

We stayed at Five Oaks for three nights and it was our favorite of the six B&B's we stopped at in our two weeks in Newfoundland. Five Oaks is 15 - 20 minutes from St. John's city center and is easy to get to. Ann and Humphrey Dye are the proprietors, offering two rooms with a shared bathroom in their home in Topsail. The room and the bathroom were spotless, (as was the whole house). The beds were very comfortable, and Ann's full English breakfasts were great! Ann and Humphrey know the local area and St. John's very well and can make excellent recommendations for restaurants, sightseeing, hiking, etc. The property has a beautiful garden, the product of many years of tender care. Ann and Humphrey are warm, caring people who will do all they can to make their guests feel at home.

We are very experienced B&B users, and we think Five Oaks is a great value in the St. John's area. We'd recommend it to anyone for a nice getaway in the local area with quick, easy access to the sights of St. John's. We hope we can return again next year.
