Nestled in the picturesque community of Witless Bay on Route 10, Irish Loop Drive, our cozy, 3-1/2 star inn is pleased to offer you, beautifully furnished rooms complete with en-suites and private decks. Here you can gaze at the Atlantic Ocean - maybe catch a glimpse of a whale's tail as they play in the bay, or watch the colorful Atlantic Puffins dive for caplin. Close your eyes and enjoy the peaceful tranquility of the waves roaring to shore and crashing on the pebbled beach from your private deck. Bears Cove Inn is on the East Coast Trail overlooking the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve and only minutes away from many other attractions, including boat tours, skidoo trails, fishing and hunting area.

I also paid $129 for the room in the back. It had its own bathroom (quite big). I was happy with the breakfast and the location (easy to find, easy to park, easy access to boat tours in the area.
