Elaine was incredibly sweet and a lovely host. Check in was noon, thank goodness because I was jetlagged and exhausted. I slept most of the time I was there, so didn't use the common areas. The bed was heavenly, especially after a 12 hour flight from Vancouver. The best part was the breakfast. I was up super early and she... More

All the right things in a great B and B. A hostess who is a natural at making people feel welcome and comfortable. Great views, a lovely room and a wonderful breakfast. Be aware, though, that if you are after a view of icebergs and puffins, September is far too late and even at high season you'll have to take... More

Elaine's is by far the best B&B. Quiet, comfortable and private. Spacious common room and the view to die for. Elaine puts on a fantastic breakfast..eggs, bacon and the morning we were there fantastic homemade blueberry muffins. I would recommend this spot to anyone looking to tour St. John's it is certainly close enough to avoid spending the night in... More

My wife and I took a 16 day trip to Newfoundland in August and stayed in B&B's from St John's to Rocky Harbour. We stayed one night at Elaine's B&B and at the end of our trip we concluded that Elaine's was the best B&B, and that was against some very good competition. She and her husband have owned this...

My husband and I took my father, 85, and mother, 75 to Newfoundland. Booking two rooms at Elaine's was one of my BEST EVER ideas. We arrived early in the season (beginning of June) and late in the evening. Elaine left us a lovely note, doors open and then promptly came over from the neighbours to greet us. A lot... More

The views at this place is out of this world. The home is gorgeous, warm and inviting. Elaine is a very gracious host. We had previously booked a whale tour which was cancelled but was kind enough to arrange one for some of the guests. We will definitely be back.
