Bird Island B&B is located in the small village of Elliston which has one of the best locations for Puffin watching on the Bona Vista or Avalon Penninsula's . The rooms are basic but have ensuites and were very clean. Breakfast was served at 7:30, starting with fresh fruit followed up by your choice of eggs, with toast, jam and some bacon.
Owners Charlotte and Robin do not live at the B&B so arrive at 7:20, prepare breakfast and then are gone to the regular jobs by 8:15. This was a bit of a disappointment since part of the fun in using B&B's is chatting with the owners and getting to know more about the area.
The other major disappointment for me was that no dining (other than breakfast) was offered, which is contrary to their website (see taking the next big step). Assisting with cooking (also offered) was something that drew me to this B&B and I specifically communicated same to Charlotte in my email, but no mention was made on our arrival.
Compared to stays at other B&B's in Newfoundland our experience at Bird Island B&B was average at best.
