Next Door Neighbours to Beautiful Port de Grave
Nothing says Newfoundland more than a fishing village just around the corner. It's a quick, two-minute drive down the road, or if you need a good, cardio workout after that Bayside breakfast, it's a good hike up and down the hill. (Some days, it feels like you're only going up hill!)
Crab season is underway, but there's lots of activity going on right now with boats coming and going. Locals also use a section of harbour to launch personal crafts during the year. Our friend Robbie launches his boat from here and it's the starting point for us when we go cod jigging in the summer.
Close to St. John's International Airport
The Bayside seems to be popular for our guests on their way back from touring the island when they're flying out the next day. Just an hour away from the airport, we're the perfect spot to end your Bucket List vacation. With our views, comfortable surroundings and relaxing atmosphere, end your travels on a high note and stay with us!
Located on the Baccalieu Trail--and We're Mad Rock Crazy!
Looking for icebergs? Quaint fishing villages? Beautiful, scenic, ocean views? Photo opportunities galore? Looking to hike through fields of blueberries? I'm going to run out of room with suggestions! The Baccalieu Trail is a popular route that takes you along just one section of the Avalon. A 230 km drive takes you along some of the prettiest sights you'll see and you can start right in our backyard with the Mad Rock Trail. You can literally spend days exploring, tasting and photographing every little cove and beach. Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism even gives you an itinerary if you need a little guidance. Or, just drive and lose yourself! Don't try and rush it into one big day. Spend a few--there's just so much to see. You'll barely scratch the surface!

We're Open Year Round!
Visiting the island in the off season? Visiting family or friends and still want to experience a B&B? Are you here for business but would like something a little more cozier than a motel or hotel? Then look no further! The Bayside is open year round. Sure, we're busy in the popular tourist season, but there's more to Newfoundland than just staying in St. John's (and even that is only an hour away).
In the off-season, experience the warmth of a wood stove and a place to relax and recharge your batteries.
Starting with November 2015, The Bayside will be offering a choice of evening meals that can be enjoyed without leaving the comfort of our B&B. Why go out when you can stay warm and toasty. We'll offer our home-cooked meals up until the end of April (with a few exceptions). I just love to cook!
Basil and I have been in the service industry for almost 50 years (combined, I'm not that old!), so we definitely know how to treat people. Opening a bed and breakfast was just the natural thing to do when we moved here and not a day goes by that I don't think about what a great move it was. In our former life, we loved to entertain our friends, cook up a storm and spend time in conversation with one and all.
Everyone is welcome in our home, no matter who they are and we hope that you'll feel like a special guest. If you want to share a story, ask questions about the area or, just want to come and have a quiet time on your own, The Bayside can meet all of your needs.
