Our hosts were friendly and accommodating to our needs. Elizabeth kindly pointed us in the right direction for interesting sights in the area including several hiking trails. Our excursion to White Point was marvellous!

Brian and Elizabeth were wonderful hosts. They were warm and helpful, giving us detailed suggestions for where to go in the area. Elizabeth recommended some very lovely hikes away from the busy tourist spots that only the locals would know. The room we stayed in (the Poplar Suite) and the common areas were immaculate (the room and bathroom is on... More

Brian and Elizabeth are very welcoming - genuine and warm. The facilities are spotlessly clean, the beds very comfortable and the showers warm. Serve yourself breakfast is such a great idea and the generous array delicious. Although the BnB is on the main road it was very quiet. The recommendations too were great. I would definately stay here again! Thank... More

You can drive the Cabot Trail in a day, but why hurry? Half way around is this very pleasant B&B in Pleasant Bay. There are only two rooms in the main house and one in a detached building. The rooms in the main house are tastefully decorated and comfortable. Each has their own bathroom. The rooms are inside the front... More

We stayed in the Poplar View room, which was very comfortable for the two of us, well-appointed with en suite. In-room air conditioner was much appreciated. The satellite TV/ wi-fi was also much appreciated as there is no cell service in this area. The self-serve continental brfst was perfect. Elizabeth and Bryan are friendly, gracious hosts with many suggestions for... More

Very bright environment. This B&B is airy, lots of light, lovely decor, great sitting area, a kitchen for you to have your breakfast. Lots of choice for breakfast and nice that you can do it at whatever time suits your itinerary. Elizabeth and Brian offer their guests all the privacy they need but are never far away for anything you... More

We stayed here in May 2016. Our room, The Poplar View, was large with en suite. It was beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. Guests had their own sitting room and kitchen where continental breakfast was self service. And the home made muffins are a must. Elizabeth and Brian, the owners, made us feel welcome and were ready to share their... More

The hosts were nice beyond words and very helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. There was a shared kitchen with continental breakfast and a shared sitting area. The bedroom was a wee bit small and the bathroom was tight but the kitchen and sitting area allowed room to spread out. We would stay again if in the... More

We stayed here in Sept 2015 while driving the Cabot trail. We had the private room that was separate the from the main house and it was very cozy. It had a kitchenette, sitting area, and queen bed. We very much enjoyed our stay here and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone

Friendly hosts, clean and cozy room, a well-stocked shared kitchen (Including delicious homemade muffins!) and a great location about halfway around the Cabot Trail. All for a good price as well! Would recommend!
