My partner and I stayed at this great B&B for a few days in early August and remember it as a highlight of our trip to Newfoundland. Wayne and Linda were great hosts and we were overwhelmed by Wayne's incredibly generous gift of fresh cod he had just caught. We were able to cook it up in the well-equipped kitchen and it was the most delicious we have ever tasted. We had enough for several meals and enjoyed every one of them. Thanks Wayne, it was truly memorable! We would have loved to have gone fishing with him but the weather was unfortunately too wet and windy after we arrived. We were happy to have the comfortable living room mostly to ourselves, where we could hang out after being on the road the previous week. The place was spotless and well located. Would love to go back again and catch our own fish! Highly recommended.

Echoes of the Ocean exceeded our expectations on every level. Linda and Wayne were perfect hosts and the B and B was spotless, modern, well equipped and comfortable. A great advantage of this B and B is all the property is available to the guests so you can walk across to the dock which is theirs and have your morning coffee or a drink underneath the stars or just sit in a chair or at the picnic table and watch the world go by. Linda made our reservations for the dinner theatre, made suggestions about where to eat and what to do and had a map with the attractions and locations available on check in. When we arrived, we just called and Linda arrived right away. In the evening, she gets everything set up for breakfast the next morning and her homemade jams are incredible. The highlight of our trip was going out in the boat with Wayne for most of one afternoon - our private tour guide. He is well experienced on the water and found us whales and icebergs and was a wealth of information. He even got us some iceberg ice so we could have a drink after our wonderful afternoon at sea and brought out their good crystal to make our "bucket list drink" extra special. We will return and hope to bring our family and stay again and enjoy the hospitality of Linda and Wayne and the comforts of Echoes of the Ocean!
