You’ve got to go! Breakfast and the optional dinner was delicious. The rooms were very comfortable with a stunning view of the bay below where we spotted whales and a highly educated seagull (Bob). We wouldn’t hesitate to return on our next trip!

What others had to say:
Our experience from beginning to end was truly enjoyable; with all the comforts of home. Clean and nostalgic accommodations blended the modern NL with its historic past. The location of the manor was perfect for exploring all of St. John’s which we did by foot. We would definitely recommend the Rendell-Shea as a highlight of a trip to NL.

Where icebergs and whales cross paths lies the coastal escape of Elaine’s B&B. Breathe in the fresh sea air from Elaine’s panoramic deck that overlooks the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve, which is home to millions of seabirds including the Atlantic Puffin. During the day, explore the area by walking the nearby East Coast Trail which offers spectacular scenery as it winds along the shoreline.

Nestled on the banks of the Atlantic Ocean, Elaine’s B&B is located on the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland, only a 30 minute drive from the capital, St. John’s.

What others had to say:

“As you sit and eat your breakfast you will see humpback whales spouting in the distance. Elaine is the perfect hostess. We also took their zodiac trip into the bay to see the whales up close and also go to see thousands of birds that nest on the island at the head of the bay.”
