My wife and I traveled around eastern NL during the last two weeks of Sept 2016 staying in B & Bs. We would have no hesitation returning to any of them. Charlotte told me on the phone that we would love her place and she was right on the mark. We stayed in the efficiency unit for four nights. We...

My family live in a city. This place is wondrous to behold for people like us. Direct, unobstructed view of the ocean with glaciers floating by, whales jumping and singing. Puffin Island is near-by, but bring some binoculars for more fun. We came during the Puffin festival--good local, homemade food, excellent music from local musisicans.

I almost postponed this early-Jul Newfoundland trip back in late-Apr thinking it might be too late to find B&B accommodations for 3 people. That was until I googled TripAdvisor-recommended B&Bs in Bonavista and nearby areas, found birdislandinn.com and saw the Efficiency Unit was available on 1 of 2 nights we planned to be in the area. I called the toll-free...

Thank you so much for leaving both a detailed and complimentary review. This past week the whales were in the Bay and our guests were able to see them from the breakfast table! I was thinking how much you would have appreciated the experience and hope you can come back again. All the best and safe travels!

Loved our hostess and our breakfasts! Hiked the trail at Spillar's Cove and was blown away! Breathtaking scenery. Was surprised to find a lovely sandy beach between Elliston and Maberly (Sandy Cove). The water was too freezing to swim in but the waves was amazing to watch. Had a fun time watching the Puffins flying around their nesting island. If...

Charlotte is a laugh and a half, and her husband is great too. Fabulous breakfast, comfortable home, all the amenities. We booked the efficiency and it was better than we expected. Bedroom with walkout to the deck overlooking the bay. Full fridge and stove, microwave, ensuite bath and separate sitting area. Deck chairs for whale watching and enjoying the sun...

Charming historic home that is clean and tidy. Outstanding ocean view with beautiful hiking trails and puffin view point close by. Woke up this morning to see the whales surfacing, while enjoying a delicious hot breakfast by Charlotte. Bird island B&B was a great experience for our family.

We loved our stay here. Good location, fantastic breakfast, comfortable beds. We felt at home and so welcomed. Were able to do laundry too. Area was amazing. Great place for hiking and getting out in nature. The puffins are a short drive away. Able to get close up I pictures.

Bird Island B&B is a great place to stay if you want to visit a charming village and see puffins! The inn is quaint, in keeping with the village, but it is spotless and very comfortable, and our hosts provided for all our needs. Breakfast was bountiful and delicious! We wish there were openings to stay longer.

I stayed at Bird Island B&B for three nights in June and would stay here again. Charlotte and Robin are great hosts.
