River Tides Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Norris Arm B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 26, 2012

We just returned to Ontario from a trip to Newfoundland. We stayed in many B & B's and this one was by far the best!!! The owners, Bev and Ron, are so inviting, warm, welcoming and make you feel right at home! The home is located on a wonderful property overlooking the Exploits River. It's so peaceful. The room was beautiful and bed very comfortable. We plan to revisit Newfoundland again and will make sure this is one of our stops along the way!

Room Tip: Ensure that you pick a B & B that has a rating higher than 3.5

We stayed at River Tides for two nights around this years Exploits Valley Salmon Festival. This B and B may be the best kept secret in the province. Location on the banks of the Exploits River is simply beautiful. The grounds are well kept. Beds very comfortable. Breakfast? Delicious and made to order. And the hosts, Bev and Ron, are just the best.

Picture a deck overlooking the river, hot coffee and a light breeze, with only the sound of the loons to keep you from complete silence. The very picture of peace and contentment.

Our only complaint? Having to leave.......

Such lovely tasteful, comfortable rooms in a wonderful location with delightful hosts Bev and Ron - what more can we say? This is a great place to stop-over if you are doing the seemingly endless east/west journey across NFLD. But more than that: stop here as a base for day trips to Twillingate to see the icebergs.
If you are touring NFLD, try also Seaside Suites at Woody Point, the Yellow House at Tors Cove, and Elizabeth J Cottages at Bonavista.

My husband and I stayed at the River Tides bed and breakfast during a recent visit to Newfoundland. We were on our way from the east coast of the island to the west coast of the island and were definitely in need of a relaxing atmosphere after a long day of driving. After a tentative drive down a long, poorly maintained road, we turned onto a gravel driveway and drove up to a sweeping, meticulously maintained property, right on the water. We parked by the huge yellow house and were greeted by the owners, Bev and Ron.

We like to stay in nice places, but this spot was off the charts. Beautiful, immaculate home, with all the special touches and more windows than you can count. Bev makes all her own pillows / window coverings and her home is crisp, bright, and sunny. We were shown to our room, with private bath, where we freshened up before sitting out on the back deck with Bev and Ron for a few cold beers. The scenery was lovely - right on the water, with local wildlife and a path down to the shore.

We were in bed by 9pm and slept like the dead. We woke up the next morning and ate a delicious breakfast (complete with Ron's fluffy eggs). He doesn't add milk to his scrambled eggs, you see, just a splash of water, like Martha Stewart. I hope I'm not giving away any state secrets - but we now do the same at home! Bev's banana bread was amazing, all served with home-made preserves and on a hand-made quilted tablecloth. In fact, Bev sells her quilts. They're so lovely that I recommended she sell them online (and I hope she does!).

We were sorry to leave and hope to be back some day. This spot definitely stood out as one of the best during our trip and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing spot for a night - or five!

We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxiing stay here at River Tides. The property is absolutely stunning right on the banks of the river, Our room was very comfortable and spacious, the Breakfast was delicious and our hosts were so friendly and accommodating. We wished we would have booked for 2 nights. We recommend this B & B to anyone traveling in beautiful Newfoundland.

I was traveling alone and the owners left it to me to decide how much interaction I wanted with them. I choice a higher level of interaction having been along for a week already and they were incredible hosts.

It was nice to be able to walk along the roadside and/or river bank.

Take the road slow. Despite the immaculate kept yard and entry, the county road needs work.

We stayed at River Tides on our way to St.John's from Gros Morne and were very impressed! Ron and Beverly are great hosts! We felt right at home in their B&B as did our 2 year old... They were so good with him and we would go back in a second! It is very clean and the house and rooms are beautiful! The property is gorgeous - too bad it rained we would have loved to spend more time outside there! Breakfast was wonderful as well although Ron was disappointed he wasn't able to cook a full breakfast for us (we were still stuffed from the night before and opted for oatmeal with blueberries) LOL! They truly were one of the best places we stayed at in our three week visit (stayed 8 different places). They do not have wireless but had no issues letting me check my emails... They are a great stop over if you are going from West to East or vice versa as they are not too far off the Trans Canada :)
