“vacation 2012”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Cape Bonnavista's B & B GEM. We had the pleasure of staying at the Puffin's Landing B & B on July 6th'& 7th' 2012 and were totally impressed. The room, bed and food were just perfect. Maureen and Keith go out of their way to make the guests welcomed, comfortable and at home. Maureen's passion for cleanliness, cooking, serving and generally hosting was refreshing. Keith's passion for entertaining, story telling, local history love of the business, their Town, relatives, neighbors and friends was infectious. Keith introduced us to areas not normally available to tourists. He not only introduced us to capelin ( a small sardine type fish) , but had a friend scoop some up and arranged for us to have them for dinner that evening. There were so many highlights of our trip to NL.but Puffin's Landing and the super breakfast ranks # one in our memories. Would we stay there again? IN A HEART BEAT.

Room Tip: Ask for the Puffin Chase room if available

Bonavista was the highlight of our holiday in N.L. thanks to Keith & Maureen, their obvious love & enthusiasm for the area was infectious, we carefully followed their advice & directions & found all the best places to see whales & puffins, we were even treated to a personal tour to Keith's secret place, fantastic views & only us there!! The hospitality was first class, the rooms clean & comfortable & the food great. Truly. we arrived as strangers & left as friends. We are already planning our next visit & wholeheartedly recommend Puffins Landing as "THE" place to stay in Bonavista. All the best Frank & Rose

Room Tip: They are all good but the King Suite has a huge bed!

Staying at Puffin's Landing is like visiting with great friends... that you just met. The home, bedroom and breakfast were fantastic but the real treat was our hosts, Keith and Maureen! Tales of the history of their town and their obvious love for Bonavista was contagious. There were so many great moments but 2 stand out. Keith's brother, Eric "conning" me into helping him catch capelin as they were rolling on the beach (SO much fun!) and Keith taking us out to a beautiful place that he used to picnic with his family. The whales and puffins were there for a private performance. I would tell you were this place was, but it's a secret... one that is only shared with Puffin's Landing guests. :)

We stayed 2 nights with Maureen and Keith, enjoying every day. Toured the town's major attractions: Cabot's ship the Matthew, Ryan premises. Keith gave us directions for the Dungeon which is really cool, but then took us to the shore where the capelin were rolling. Then he drove us and another guest couple, off road, to the cliffs where we were able to view puffins and the dramatic shore, albeit through some fog. Our hosts advised of a performance by a Celtic band at a nearby theatre which we enjoyed. Room was comfortable, clean, quiet. Within walking distance to the town. Very nice stay.

One of the highlights of our trip to Newfoundland was a stop in beautiful Cape Bonavista. We were fortunate to find a room at Puffins Landing B&B in the centre of town – walking distance to restaurants and harbour, and a few minutes from the puffin colony t Elliston. The home is super clean and very cozy with a living room, dining room and kitchen for guests and large, well appointed bedrooms including en-suite bathrooms. They provide a sumptuous, hot and cold home-cooked breakfast with gourmet extras including wonderful local jams and berries. Hosts Maureen and Keith Abbot went well beyond even the usual accommodating and friendly spirit of islanders to entertain us with local stories, show us special local sights and educate us with great humour about life in this wonderful place. I wish we could have stayed longer and highly recommend it to travelers seeking the best of Newfoundland hospitality.

My husband and I were not B&B people prior to our stay at the Puffins Landing. However, we are now converts and it is due to Keith and Maureen making us so welcome and feeling like one big family. We would highly recommend a stay at this wonderful spot. Our hosts went above and beyond, taking us out to see areas of spectacular scenery that our rental just would not reach. Maureen's cooking is the last word in "Full Breakfast". One doesn't need lunch after a start like theirs. Truly magnificent holiday.

What an amazing B&B conveniently located near the harbour in his quaint small fishing community. Our hosts Ketith and Maureen were so down home friendly and the breakfast is to die for. They have the cutest dog named Jiggs which is a friendly little guy. We stayed in the Puffin Chase room and it was the. Best sleep we had along our travels. Keith shared some stories of days ago when fishing was such an important part of this towns history. Both he an Maureen have a love for this province whih is shown in all the little trinkets and pictures around their home. We purchased some spectacular prints from Keith that his brother had taken.
