“Stunningly Beautiful B&B for Romance...”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We went to Newfoundland for our honeymoon and Elaine's was our favourite B&B. Large, airy, quiet, with stark beautiful views everywhere. It was a short drive from the airport in St. John's, perhaps a half hour or so. Highly recommended!

Right on the sea at Witless Bay, Elaine's offers very comfortable rooms - we had a large room upstairs with four windows overlooking the sea. Breakfast was bacon and eggs plus yogurt, fruits, cereals, croissants, etc etc - quantity and quality. Elaine is a live-wire, witty, relaxed and very friendly. If you stay more than one night, plan to make up your own bed!

Elaine's is the best B&B. The large rooms are beautifully furnished. It has a large bay window overlooking Witless Bay. Of course Elaine serves the best Blueberry Muffins. We also went on their ecotours zodiac adventures - saw lots of whales and the witless reserve with large colony of Murres, gulls etc. Witless Bay is only a short 30 minutes away from St John's, Newfoundland.

Having stayed in many B and Bs, Elaine's was by far the most comfortable I've encountered. Her home is beautiful, and spotlessly clean. With large common areas, it feels like a home, not a hotel. We stayed 4 nights and had wonderful evening conversations with the other guests in the living areas. Breakfast was great. Elaine and Dan are both so friendly and accommodating. I would also highly recommend the Zodiac tour run by Dan and Elaine. We saw many, many birds and several whales up close, including two breaching! It was an incredible experience all around. If you're coming to Witless Bay, don't stay anywhere else!

WOW, the room with a view, awesome. Dan's and Elain's georgeous home here is so welcoming and comfortable, it's hard to believe it's a B&B. The bed was superb (I loved the flower sheets) and the room large and very clean Tthe home lends itself to meeting other guests. Elain was so helpful and accommodating and whipped us up the most incredible breakfasts. You can look out your bedroom window and see whales......fantastic. My favourite B&B of our two week stay on the rock. Dan runs a Whale Watching tour, and it was unbelievable. Geared up in Survival suits and tearing across the bay in a Zodiac, How cool. The best whale tour yet.

We had a wonderful time at Elaine's - from the gorgeous room, amazing view, comfortable home and the best breakfast we had in the 2 weeks we spent on the Rock. We sat and sipped wine on the lawn while watching whales in the harbour.

Room Tip: The upper room with the bay window was a bonus.

What a view. We had a beautiful clean room with 2 windows that overlook the bay. At 530 in the morning the minke whales come right to the edge of her place there is a porch outside that you can sit and watch the whales Elaine came out and joined me and watch them. We saw humpback and minkes in the morning over coffee and tea. Great breakfast and company. Loved staying there
