Sheppards B & B was the place my friend and I stayed for the first day & night on May 13th, 2017 of a 1 week trip to Western Newfoundland. Doris and Tom were not just helpful, friendly, charming but also provided a B & B experience that all other B & B need to aspire to do. They shared...

We Stayed at the Sheppard's B and B for two nights! Tom and Doris Sheppard, owners of this beautiful home were the perfect hosts! Loved the welcome song! My husband and I stayed in the safari room which is large, very clean and decorated beautifully! The bed was very comfortable and the private bathroom was just beautiful with a futuristic...

A group of five friends stayed in three rooms for two nights. Doris and Tom were welcoming. Their breakfasts were very good. The song they sang for us on our second morning was 'a hoot'. The B&B is just outside of Trout River which was interesting to explore. We could easily have spent another day in the area.

As others have noted, Tom and Doris are exceptional hosts. It was/is Doris' dream, (She was a civil servant in Ottawa.) so they built the house together, from scratch. Tom's carpentry skills are second to none. You can see the photos, you can hear the stories. Much, much to enjoy--such as the coffee or the aforementioned French Toast Casserole. It...

Had a wonderful experience staying at Sheppard's B&B. Doris's french toast cassarole (with blueberries and maple syrup) for breakfast was delicious. The house is up a hill with a large yard (and wonderful view) so there are no traffic noises whatsoever, just peace and quiet.

The rooms are extremely comfortable and clean. We stayed in the lavender suite and the bed was just perfect. Breakfast in the morning provided a variety of choices and was served with delicious coffee and plenty of great conversation. Our hosts created a warm and hospitable atmosphere which encouraged conversation and laughter. Breakfast was topped off with some down home...

Stayed for 4 nights, and must say, a total delight. Given great places are tough to find in the Gross Morne area, falling across Doris and Tom's place, was a key find. Excellent rooms, fantastic breakfast choices, views from almost everywhere to die for, and the two nicest Newfoundlanders you could imagine. These folks have worked hard to make their...

Very friendly service. Each room has a theme. Uncomfortable spa shower. Clean and comfortable. Located on the top of a hill it had breathtaking scenery of South Side Gros Morne. Lots of towels. To order breakfast. Very good price. Would definitely stay here again.

The couple who run this place are about as friendly as it gets. They LOVE having guests. In fact they built this place I think just so they would always have company. In the morning they offer up a variety of differing plates for you to choose from for breakfast and sing you a song they wrote (complete with accordion...
