House With a View

salmon-cove-b-and-bA family connection brought us to At William’s Rest in Salmon Cove.  me-and-marilynOur bed and breakfast hostess Marilyn is a former Winnipeg art teacher who is quite the artist herself.  Her work is for sale in shops in Salmon Cove and she has some of it displayed in her home along with other unique and interesting art pieces she has collected from various Canadian artists.  Marilyn has created a spectacular place for guests to enjoy the beauty of Newfoundland. dave-and-marilynThe house itself is a thing of beauty as are the hearty breakfasts Marilyn makes.  Marilyn has named the house after her late husband and hearing the story of how they turned this piece of property into such a special home is fascinating.  The views from the front porch of the house are breathtaking. williams-rest
