Fishing Point Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 6 St. Anthony B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Really, on Google maps, if you put in this address, the little blue dot shows you on the water. We absolutely loved our room (Deep Water Point) in this cosy old family home, one of the original fishing homes in St Anthony. Get the charming Donna to tell you the story of this place. We fell asleep listening to the ocean outside. High-quality cotton sheets were a refreshing change from some of the threadbare (or worse still, polyester) ones we've encountered in other B&Bs.
Great walks nearby, an easy walk to the best local resto, and an excellent "taste-of-Newfoundland" breakfast served in the morning (including cod cakes, homemade jams, homemade baked beans).
We would return.

For anyone looking for a great bed and breakfast in St Anthony, Newfoundland, stop here and call Donna or Les now and yes book here. We are from New Brunswick and I had to go to St Anthony for both work and some pleasure too of course. We arrived in St Anthony late around 8:00pm and we called Donna that we had finally arrived. She greeted us with a big smile and happy that we had arrived and gladly showed us the house and the room etc.. We really enjoyed the rooms, we stayed for three (3) nights, but not in a row and we got the opportunity to stay in two of the three rooms and enjoyed them both. The part that we loved the most was to be able to sit on the deck outside in her comfortable patio furniture under a roof and enjoy the scenic view of the water just a stone's throw away. Also during the night you can see the water from your room window and even open the window and hear the waves hitting the rocks, how peaceful it was. And last but not least, Donna prepares you a fantastic breakfast every morning with the Newfoundland culture in mind and I must add that we had three different breakfasts on the three nights stay and all we fantastic. She prepares her own jams, baked apple, something rubbarb and the other is like a berry jam and all were great. We got to taste some of the area's traditions like Moose sausage, cod for breakfast, crab legs too. Donna is a great host and knows how to interact easily with people and she enjoys to chat and explain you about any questions you may have about the area. She will even share stories about their Winters and when they have to deal with sometimes with the big POLAR BEAR that happens to visit from time to time.
We would definitely recommend this Bed and Breakfast to relax and enjoy the beauty of the area and yes, we would definitely stay there again.

This inn is overlooking St. Anthony harbour and the hosts are wonderful. Breakfast was lovely, sitting with the other guests and having the opportunity to taste some traditional Newfoundland foods. We stayed in the room called "Deep Water Point" since it will sleep three adults - the bed squeaked but I'm sure this will be fixed soon..

Room Tip: The second bed in the room "Deep Water Point" squeaked like crazy...make sure this is fixe...

In a recent 16 day visit to Newfoundland, we stayed one night at this B&B. While the bed was very comfortable, our room was very very small with only a small window; the queen bed needed to be pushed up against this window.Fortuately we only brought in a small overnight bag;There would not have been anywhere to have put a large bag ; as well the stairs leading down to the bedrooms were fairly narrow.
This B&B(of 15) was the only B&B that asked for payment soon after arrival; it was the only B&B that had a set time for breakfast(Breakfast will be at 8!) All others had a range of time and always asked what was best for the guest.In addition, there was no choice at breakfast- we were presented with a plate which was suppose to be a representation or sample of Newfoundland food; One guest really enjoyed breakfast because he ate most of everyone else's when we were there!
On arrival we were invited to make our own tea -other places welcomed us with partridge berry coffee cake, another place fresh biscuits with tea, cookies and tea etc etc
While this B&B may be described as quaint, for us it lacked the generous willingness to accomodate the guests that we found in all the other outstanding B&B where we were made to feel so welcome.(as opposed to being part of a business transaction)

We spent two days with Donna, the owner of the Fishing Point B&B. Our room was delightfully decorated and very comfortable. We had a great view of the harbour and icebergs. Donna's breakfasts were very creative, in that she offered several samples of Newfoundland cooking.
She also provided printed information of the many things to do in and around St Anthony. If you decide to stay there, make sure that you agree on a specific time for check-in. She lives elsewhere and leaves the B&B locked. There is a telephone number for calling her but if you don't have a cell phone, you will have to to the shopping center for a telephone. When you get your key then all is well.

This was in every way a fine place to stay. Donna was a wonderful hostess and made scrumptious breakfasts. The B&B is spotlessly clean and although the rooms are quite small (because it is an old fisherman's home from days gone by) they are perfectly comfortable. We liked it a lot.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Donna's. The rooms are small but cozy. The ensuite is decent. Although everything is small and cozy -- everything is clean. Very comfortable.The view when you get up is amazing. Hearing the water when you get up makes you just want to stay in bed all day. Donna makes a hot breakfast for you in the morning (moose sausage, pancakes, baked beans, fish cakes....) Quite the elaborate affair! She can even cater to you if you are a vegetarian! There is wifi, which was refreshing after days without connection. We were the youngest couple there at breakfast - but thoroughly enjoyed the conversations with the other guests. Will definitely stay there again!
