We stayed at Elaine's for three nights and from the moment we arrived we were glued to the whale watching! Views from the B&B directly over the sea and at least 20 animals feeding in the bay at any time. Even saw them whilst we ate breakfast on the final morning which was foggy!
Rooms are beautifully clean and comfortable and all reports about the excellent breakfast are true! Great start to our trip.

Stayed: August 2017, travelled with family

Location on the ocean facing the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve is amazing. From the plentiful Muskoka chairs facing the bay you can see and hear humpbacks in the sea from the property and from an ocean facing room. Beds are comfy, and there are many touches which add comfort to the experience. Elaine is a treasure to talk to and runs a fine facility with six rooms. Breakfast features eggs, toast, bacon or ham, many jams, and fresh fruit along with good coffee. Wifi is generally excellent.

Stayed 2 nights in room 1 with king size bed. Lovely spacious room with amazing view - worth the extra cost. There is a large room downstairs for guests with lots of comfortable seating and a great book collection and more amazing views. Lots of seating outside as well to enjoy the view. Saw an abundance of whales from both inside and outside the B and B. Breakfast is great with fresh fruit, muffins or croissants, followed by eggs and bacon and toast. Elaine and Danny are great hosts.

We stayed 3 nights at Elaine's and couldn't be happier with our accommodations. The entire house is spotlessly clean and our bedroom was comfortable with an adequately sized private bath. We had windows overlooking the bay, and were thrilled to see whale spouts and whale tails appear early in the morning! Location of this property is perfect, with a view out to Gull Island and just a minute to the pier where the zodiac goes out whale watching. Nice chairs for lounging outside to watch for whales. Delicious breakfasts too, really all you could ask for.

Room Tip: We stayed upstairs and room had a view of the bay; only downside was the narrow stairway.

We are Seniors and have never stayed at bed and Breakfast until this trip. We love them and when one finds a place like Elaine's it makes the experience that much better. The room was lovely and has a beautiful view of the ocean. We went on a zodiac whale watching trip and did we see whales, so exciting. The food was excellent, lots of choices and yummy muffins. Thanks for making our stay so comfortable Elaine and Danny.
