Harbourview is a historic house in Bonavista from the 1860's or so, and built by Albert's great grandfather -- a picture of whom you will find in the kitchen. For the time it must have been a huge house, and originally had 4 fireplaces. The rooms are very large for a B&B and very comfortable. Albert and Florence work as a team, and although they may not agree on who is the boss, they do a fantastic job of hosting. However, from the outside one might see it as Florence taking the lead on cooking, and Albert with the story telling...
One of the first guests at Harbourview was Gordon Pinsent, when Queen Elizabeth was in Bonavista to celebrate the replica of John Cabot's ship Matthew's arrival for the 500th anniversary. Ask Albert to tell you the story of how Pinsent got a reservation...
If your plans are to stay in the Trinity-Bonavista area, I can highly recommend this B&B. It is the quickest way to take a full immersion course in the culture of NL.
