🏡 Inn On Capelin Bay Bed & Breakfast. 🏡

Situated in the Province of Newfoundland and just 1 hours drive south from the City of St. John’s, is the tiny and very picturesque – Calvert Bay.

A beautiful 🛌 Bed & Breakfast on the Southern Shores of Newfoundland.

I had planned on spending a couple of days visiting communities along the southern shore, when scheduling our travels in Newfoundland and boy were we happy that we did!

Newfoundland Southern Coastline

From Bay Bulls, historic Ferryland to Cape Race and Trepassey, this part of Newfoundland should not be missed!

Calvert Bay – Formerly Known As Capelin Bay

It appears the name Capelin was changed back in 1922 to Calvert Bay, to satisfy the 📮 postal service.

At the time, there were a few other communities with a similar name. Capelin is named after a common 🐟 fish that was caught by early settlers. This area is also in the heart of the famous ☘ Irish Loop.

The Inn’s owners decided to name their 🛌 B&B after the original name of – Capelin.

The Inn on Capelin Bay was built in 2014, on a slight hill on the north side of Calvert Bay. Your host and owner {Kevin}, a long time resident of the community, has skillfully refurbished his family’s original homestead to a now beautiful 🛌 Bed & Breakfast.
