“The Place to Stay in Bonavista”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2009

This B&B is truly by the sea - walk out the door and you are right there. The owners are very friendly "down to earth" folks who welcomed us into their home as if we were old friends. We had the smaller of the rooms which, although somewhat cramped, was still very comfortable. The bed was extremely cozy. The ample breakfast was served in the family dining/living room so you really felt more like family than guests.
The property is located within minutes of the lighthouse and downtown. The twisting laneways make finding the home a bit difficult but not too bad if you can spot the signs (the Newfoundland government is forcing businesses to remove their signs and pay for government approved signage - same thing Mike Harris did in Ontario).
The Butler's only take cash so be sure to find an ATM before arriving (there is a Scotia Bank in town). If you go there, be sure to say hello to Max the monster-sized cat.

I booked Butler's By the Sea from the previous review on this website. Thank you very much. We had the larger room and enjoyed the hospitality of the Butlers very much. Very nice people. The breakfast was excellent. Great view. One of our best B&B's on our 3 week trip to Newfoundland. Recommend this B&B.

I've stayed at Butlers more than once. The larger room is the one to request if you have the choice. It's worth the extra cost. However, if it is booked and the smaller room is available, it's still a good bet since the location of the B&B on the water and the quality of the hosts offset the smaller room size. The parking lot is basically on the edge of the water. Several B&Bs advertise being within walking distance of the water. This one really is. If I'm visiting Bonavista, it's the place I want to stay.
