We recently returned from a delightful 3 night stay at Harbourview B&B. Terry and Colleen have spent the last year tastefully renovating this 162 year old family home with a breathtaking view overlooking the Bonavista harbour. The updates include private baths in each of the 4 spacious and immaculate rooms and new tasteful furnishings throughout that still maintain the charm of this home. Albert and Florence, Colleen's parents, have lovingly run this B&B for 16 years and although now retired and living next door, they still maintain a welcome hand in the operation. Florence provides the delicious home made bread and jams that are served for breakfast along with sharing the baking of the evening dessert "lunch" with Colleen, ( both are talented bakers!). Albert is the berry picker in the family and while we were there he was busy picking bake apples for Florence to make jam. Albert joined us for our evening "lunch" and entertained us with his stories and antics. After a busy day of touring the area, viewing puffins, whales and icebergs, returning to Harbourview to sit out on the deck and watch the sunset over the harbour was a perfect end to the day. But wait, there is more, around 9:30pm, guests are invited to sit around the dining room table to share their stories and partake in an amazing "lunch", a large platter of fresh crab and a homemade dessert and tea. Colleen and Terry's warmth and hospitality are what truly make this experience special. They go above and beyond to make sure their guests are comfortable and happy. When they learned that we were celebrating our anniversary, a complimentary bottle of wine was delivered to our room! This is one hard working family who know how to give their guests a true warm Newfoundland experience!
