The 2017 season has come to an end. Guests from all over the world, England, Switzerland, USA, NZ, and France. From almost every
province in Canada. How they find me is always a mystery to me. The weather was exceptional and the icebergs were plentiful and
magnificent! On a sad note Jim Forward my partner in the early days of the B&B passed away after a short battle with cancer. He will
always be remembered for the kitchen parties he hosted here and his knowledge and love of Newfoundland culture and history which he
loved to share with all the guests. RIP buddy, I know you are having kitchen party, when I listen closely I can hear.....
- Aunt Edna, from Little Bay Islands, NL Canada 22 September 2017
Dear Sharlene, Vic and I are so fortunate we found this little island and the spot that you have nurtured to perfection. Yes, it feels like
grandmother's house, yet much more because we can be nostalgic but also invigorated by today. The meals were sublime and our
conversations warm and lively. You bring this old house to life with your enthusiasm and stories. We now have a new "toast" to remember
and repeat as we raise our wineglass and a better understanding of some individuals reticence to openly share. What a strange and
wonderful place - Newfoundland! Come visit us in California when we are "in residence" there. Much rest, relaxation, - and then more
adventure hoped for you as the winter approaches. Warm wishes always!
- Jeanne and Vic, from California, USA 22 September 2017
Thank you so much for your welcoming hospitality, delicious food and lots of laughter. It's wonderful to have the opportunity to stay in your
lovely house and to see a part of Newfoundland I've never visited before. I hope to be able to return some day. best wishes for the future.
- Barbara, from London UK 20 September 2017

business. Lots of luck, although expect you won't need it!

Thank you Sharlene (Aunt Edna) I came to Newfoundland in 1968 as a medical student to Twillingate. Now after a career approaching 50
years in family practice in UK, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, Ireland and West Africa I retired 6 weeks ago - and it doesn't get any
better than Little Bay Islands and Aunt Edna's guest house!
- Jeremy, from Lichfield, England 16 August 2017
Aug 14, 2017 Sharlene - One of the very best things about sailing around Newfoundland is the chance to meet and get to know people
like you- your energy, your welcome, your warm comfortable inn, your fabulous breakfast-we are so privileged to have met you-in such a
beautiful protected harbour. Thank you so much for inviting us into your home and stories of your life with us. Our thoughts and prayers
well be with you this week and beyond- We will never forget you. With much love and respect- the crew of White Way ll

loved it! Thank you very much for letting us have the "best experience" of our island get-aways. Our chats and delish meals will give us lots
of conversation for some time. Enjoyed to the fullest! Keep on fighting for "island culture" don't live in the past, move to the future. There is a
future here, just a different "future". Love and best wishes.

- Jane, from Pensacola, FL 7 August 2017
July 27, 2017 Our stay here will always be one of our favourites. Very difficult so early in the morning to put into words what we have
experienced. I feel we made a friend-you may very well be an "old soul" someone I have known for a long time...This has been a
"home-like" stay, warm, inviting, comfortable. Being in Little Bay Islands was educational. We learned a lot from you, got another
perspective of Newfoundland life. Thanks so very much for these past few days! Love *(The Butter Dish)
- Alice and Bernie, from Burlington, ON 27 July 2017

- Eydie & Alvin, from Corner Brook, NL 27 July 2017
July 24, 2017 Sharlene, What a wonderful homecoming for my husband, Guy's 70th birthday! we couldn't have felt more at home! We were
so comfortable and felt so at ease and welcome in your gorgeous house. It was delightful to hear all your stories of the people of Little Bay
Islands and of the goings on over the years. Your knowledge is amazing as well as your generosity of sharing. We were all stuffed to the
gunnels with your delicious food which we all enjoyed so much! The birthday cake, as you said it would be was to die for, and thank-you so
much for doing that. What a special birthday he had! For sure, Sharlene, you are a true Newfoundlander!
- Tina and Guy, from Salt Springs, NS 27 July 2017
Dear Sharlene, you are a wonderful host and we really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful B&B. Every room has its own character with many

would have gained much weight for sure;).

7-5-17 Sharlene-What an experience! We have had an amazing time learning about the culture, staying at your beautiful boarding house

amazing gifts. We will never forget our time here and your incredible hospitality. Thank you for everything-
- Kathleen, Sarah, Meghan, from Chicago IL USA, Ft Wayne IN USA, Orlando FL USA 6 July 2017

- Carol and Tony, from Sudbury, ON 25 June 2017
June 20, 2017 Words cannot describe this beautiful home filled with antiques. Aunt Edna as we call her is the gracious hostess. She
knows the history of the island and tells it with great relish. We stayed last year and brought friends with us to enjoy the unique holiday. It
was the highlight of the whole trip.
- Bill and Imelda, from Sudbury, ON 25 June 2017
Thank you, a million times over! For the amazing house, amazing food and drink, great little hike recommendations, ghost stories (and for

to make our stay perfect. Hopefully we will run into each other again in the future. Thank you for making us CFA kids feel at home.
- Chelsea, from Calgary, AB 14 June 2017
Sharlene, What a gem of a house, and a host, and a place. The food was amazing but the stories and conversation are what made the
stay memorable. Thank you for the stories of life in NL and of your own (really interesting!) life. We loved Aunt Edna's and will be
recommending it to everyone we meet. I'll be sending more children your way!
- Jen, from Medicine Hat, AB 14 June 2017
May 31, 2017 Back for another season! We are experiencing some ferry sailing disruptions due to the sea ice conditions. I will keep
everyone apprised day to day. Today is beautiful and just waiting to go for supplies tomorrow to stock up the larder. Icebergs are plentiful
this year and our captain is on his way from Florida with his new boat. Looking forward to a great season!
- Aunt Edna, from Little Bay Islands, NL 31 May 2017
Oct 15, 2016 Well another season has come and gone, again we have been busier than the year before and nothing but the very best of
guests. We will be adding another room for the 2017 season as it was very disheartening to turn so many away. Strange thing about the
bookings is we were always busier during the week than on the weekends, don't know why that is, but for those Newfoundlanders planning
a last minute "Baycation" don't be afraid to call for a weekend booking. The guests who came the furthest came from Australia, (a place I
have also travelled to). The most daring came on motorbikes with the 78 and 74 year old parents also on motorbikes. The funniest was an
O'Rielly for St John's who wanted breakfast in bed, his wife had a great sense of humour too! We had film directors, journalists from Roads
& Kingdoms, (check out Neighbour against Neighbour by Josh Scheinert), Check out Michael Crummey's article in the October 2016
Canadian Geographic about Little Bay Islands beautiful pics and story about resettlement and LBI. The Downhome magazine did an
article 'Historic Stays Around the Bay' and Aunt Edna's made the July issue, check that out. The Walrus did an article as well and the
Bloomberg Press. All and all a fantastic summer of coverage. Dennis Flynn also took some photographs this summer that I expect to see
sometime this winter. He is a freelancer who is also an avid traveller and supporter of Newfoundland & Labrador. Little Bay Islands is an
interesting and historic point to visit and at the moment is living history of the resettlement issue in NL. Don't miss us!
- Aunt Edna, from Little Bay Islands, Green Bay, NL 28 November 2016
Sept 12 Sharlene, thanks so much for opening your home and heart to us. You are truly a wonderful person, host-coook and storyteller ;)
We loved everything about our stay here. Loved the place & the history of the Island. May God bless you in the future with whatever that
holds for you.
- Dave and Betty, from Lincoln, ON 19 September 2016
Sept 11/16 Once again another wonderful stay. If these walls could talk, I can only imagine the stories they'd tell. Sharlene, as always your
hospitality is above and beyond!
- Gail, from St. John's, NL 19 September 2016
Thanks Sharlene, appreciate the excellent hospitality and the wonderful meals. What a beautiful place and excellent job on everything -

see you again!
- Robert and Diane, from Simcoe, ON 10 September 2016
Aug 27 Sharlene, Floyd and I had such a wonderful time. I grew up in an old house like this (built in 1912, in Grand Forks, BC) and so
when I come to a bnb in an old home...it's like going home. Such a wonderful time spent talking and getting to know a new "friend". See
you in Silverstar, so I can reciprocate.
- Jane and Floyd, from Vernon, BC 10 September 2016
27 Aug, 2016 Thank you so much for your kind hospitality. Though our stay was but a short one, we learned so much of this community, its
past and future. I would like to thank you for your efforts in the quest of assuring the dignity of past residents and their final resting
places...Take care of yourself, until next time.
- Greg & Manuela, from Ottawa, ON 10 September 2016
Aug 20, 2016 Dear Sharlene We had a great time, so glad we got here. We haven't been this way before. It rained on Sat, so our hiking

exceptionally good. We leave today with a wealth of knowledge and many happy memories-over to my sister> What a time we had here!
Love this place. Sharlene really creates a home and such an atmosphere! Enjoyed every minute. And what food! Innovative and delicious!

made it special was Sharlene's spirit and generosity. Thank you!

July 7th, 2016 A wonderful place and a most charming hostess. Truly enjoyed the food, the company and the ambiance. Our stay may be
extended because we are now waiting for repairs to the ferry before we can continue our exploration of Newfoundland. But what a place to
be stranded. Couldn't be in better hands than Sharlene's.
- Henry & Elaine, from Victoria, BC 14 July 2016
July 7, 2016 Will we stay or will we go? Waiting on news to see if they'll patch the hole in the ferry from yesterday's mishap. Well, can't think
of a better place to be stuck than with Charlene @ aunt Edna's. What a wonderful respite from the regular mad world we've had on Little
Bay Islands - wouldn't be bad at all to extend it for a bit. We know Charlene will keep us well fed and regale us with stories. We loved our

June 27th, 2016 We all feel so fortunate to have 'found' Aunt Edna's Boarding House and to have met Sharlene. Just love this island! We
don't want to leave. We have been spoiled by Sharlene-such delicious meals! Sharlene organized a boat tour for us to see the icebergs.
Dike took us out. We wave seen icebergs in Patagonia but our parents hadn't seen them before-very impressive. We feel sad about the
relocation proposal but can now understand the pros and cons. Please come and visit us in Australia. Ditto from Margaret and Vern from

people. Everyone welcomes you as family Amazing walking trails and spectacular scenery. From the moment you arrive Sharlene goes
out of here way to make you feel at home. Every guest is special to her. Food is delicious and plentiful. She knows the history of the town
and gladly shares it with you. She is like a long lost friend that you connect with in five minutes. This has definitely been the highlight of our
holiday. when we go back to Ontario we will spread the news about what an amazing B&B this is.

everyone in residence to keep it up as long as they have strength to do it. To Sharlene, beautiful hospitality, food, friendship, kind hearted
person. I adore your strong will and hard work to keep this B&B together, hats off to you. Keep it up as long as you can. They say it's not
what you do in life but the people you meet along the way. Hard work always pays off to those who keep it together. If you come our way do
drop in. May God bless you and your family everyday. Thank you for everything I will never forget you or this place. 'Edna'

June 1, 2016 "We're back!" An easy and quick opening this year with no problems with pipes or water. Had to kick right into gear with a
booking a day after the water was turned on. The bay is full of icebergs and took a shot with the sun shining as I sailed across Green Bay
to open up. The resettlement vote is behind us for now, Roads and Kingdoms sent a travel writer out for four days to do a story and they
hooked and dropcam out my upstairs window overlooking the harbour. Aunt Edna's is in the July issue of the Downhome Magazine as
they cover the Historic B&Bs of Newfoundland and Labrador. Can't wait to see that! Almost booked up for June so book early. We have a
new tour business in Springdale "Green Bay Eco Tours" a highend tour company with a beautiful new boat doing Heritage Tours of LBI
from Springdale but also pick up from LBI. The icebergs and whales are here!! It's going to be a great year! Check us all out on facebook
- Aunt Edna, from Little Bay Islands, NL 15 June 2016
Well it is an early end to the summer this year due to a family emergency in BC, but we will be open May 20, 2016, God willing! It was a wet
and furious summer. I may sell storm packages next year! Lots of great guests and everyone stayed 2 days or more, which I highly
recommend. We are half way and it is the perfect place to get your second wind if you are travelling the province. Lots of icebergs again
this year in June and July. The recreational fishery was abundant, don't miss it. Dates not yet posted, but a soon as I have them I will post!
Thanks for the short but sweet summer everyone!!! See you next year!! Love, Aunt Edna
- Aunt Edna, from Little Bay Islands, NL 4 September 2015
A change in the weather is good for all - and we had it. Windows open, Quilts on - Thanks for all
Thank you for taking such good care of us in your beautiful home. Look us up if you are in Toronto at ART ZONE!

Friday, August 28, 2015 Dear Sharlene, Steve and I can't thank you enough for your warm hospitality and delicious meals! This was the
most restful and rejuvenating portion of our holiday - thanks to you. Please say goodbye to Doris and the Little Bay islands women who,
also, were very welcoming. What a charming spot this is! Sincerely, PS If you are ever in the Stratford area, please look us up!
- Carol and Stephen, from Stratford, ON 4 September 2015
Aug 23, 2015 What to say??? Not enough time or words....Sharlene, your home is a wonder and delightful surprise. A lovely retreat in an
idyllic setting. You are a perfect hostess and a fabulous cook. Your great stories and just an added bonus. We had a wonderful mini
vacation on Little Bay Islands. Thanks ever so much.
- Judy and Vince, from Stephenville Crossing, NL 4 September 2015
This is me Jim Mercer. We loved our time with you and we will be back. Your meals, your friendship, your lovely hospitality was just great.
You are just great. Thank you so much for you kindness. We will see you again. If you are ever in Stephenville Crossing, we have a room
for you for as long as you want to stay and my cooking will be good.
- |Jim Mercer, from Stephen ville Crossing 24 August 2015
August 16, 2015 You have been a fantastic host, a marvelous cook and a great story teller. We have enjoyed our stay with you in your
nostalgic home so much. The resettlement story enticed us to visit Little Bay Islands for the first time but your grand welcome to this part of
our world will certainly lure us back this way if it's possible. Thank you so much for all your pampering and special care to us and our

- Gerry (age 8), from St. John's, NL 22 August 2015
Aug 14, 2015 What an excellent place to stay in Little Bay Islands: a lovely old home, super food and friendly professional care from
Charlene. Wonderful to see how much people work together in this community. The trails: I rode many on my mountain bike: Western
Cove, Murcell's, Pole Hill, Mack's Island...great fun and enough for a couple of days riding. A few places improved signage could be used
and cutting back of alders. Mack's Island board walk a hazard. Murcell's Cove could use a redesign at bottom due to erosion: See
International Mountain Bike Association website for books and resources on building trails that don't erode. Excellent book gives advice
suitable for hiking and biking trail construction. Trails were entertaining with plenty of views.
- Andrew, from Corner Brook, NL 22 August 2015
Aug 14, 2015 Thank you! Thank you! We are so glad we stayed three nights! Kayaks, bikes & hikes. The kids had the best vacation and
memories were made. Wishing you nothing but the best-
- Andrea, from St. John's, NL 22 August 2015
Sharlene, our stay was wonderful. We loved every second of our stay. Little Bay Islands is one of the most beautiful places we have ever
been. You are a top notch host, and we honestly felt completely at home. Thank you ever so much for everything
- Tony and Judy Gillis, from Codroy Valley, NL 18 August 2015
Aug 11/15 What a wonderful gem of a place you have here Sharlene. Aunt Edna's exceeded our expectation. We enjoyed our one night
stay and loved the stories and conversation. Today's paddle was truly a magical one. We will remember it forever with the amazing view of
the cabin on the beach to being treated to the passing of a humpback whale while in the canoe. It was a pleasure meeting you and thank
you for such a wonderful stay.
- Cheryl and Kevin, from Waterloo, ON 11 August 2015
Aug 11/15 Sharlene, what a marvellous couple of days. The chats, delicious food, exquisite paddle in the bay, even the rainy day -it was
perfect. Many thanks!
- Carmen, from Yarmouth, NS 11 August 2015
Aug 9/15 i have to thank my Aunt Hazel McIsaac for this wonderful visit. I always said I would take the ferry that was named in her honour!
First time here and I hope I have the honour of coming here again. Sharlene you are a great host, the food was excellent, your home is
very welcoming...I love how you kept it so true to itself! Thanks for everything.

- Rod, from Oromocto, NB 11 August 2015
July 30, 2015 Before resettlement happens on this island I had to come visit; as all my forefathers lived on this island. Sharlene took me
into the church across the street and I was able to look through the church records. I can't begin to tell you how excited I was and I certainly
can't thank you enough. I have visited every cemetery on this island and took pictures of every one of them before they become lost
forever. The food, the bed, and the scenery is absolutely stunning! I could stay here all year round and never be bored. Thank you seems
so inadequate...what a time!
- Tonya and Leon, from St. Paul AB (originally from Corner Brook) 4 August 2015

- Terry, from Kit. Ont. 28 July 2015
July 21/15 Just as Barbara described, a "hidden treasure" with a fabulous hostess. Our favorite type of B&B, they all have a story; it's a
crime that this story may have an ending. Will attempt to return & bring my brother-in-law Cal (the poet). There's still another story to tell.
Memories cannot end. Thanks so much for everything.

energie incroyable, je me suis vraiment senti acceuillis comme un membre de la communaute. Un gros merci pour ton enorme
goenterosite. Je pars le coeur pleons ce beax souvenirs.
- Daniel and Chantal, from Windsor, Quebec 14 July 2015
June 27, 2015 Charlene, Thank you for being so kind to us and so informative about LBI. It's amazing that someone from the other side of
Canada should be making it possible for others from Canada and abroad to see and experience something of the old Newfoundland . It
was a time when the salt fish (cod)trade was the economic engine of NL and the reason our ancestors came here. Change is a constant,
and life as I remember it a a young boy in the 1930s can never return! What you are enabling visitors to experience and learn about is a
valuable contribution well beyond the comfort and fine fare at Aunt Edna's. Keep it up. Your friends,
- Robert and Lucy, from St. John's, NL 27 June 2015
June 25, 2015 Never in a million years did I think I would find folks who remember my grandfather, grandmother and records of my dear
mother, here on LBI. What a joy it has been. The highlights are too many to name but I'll try - BINGO (we almost won 1000 feet of Saran
Wrap!); sailing with Skipper Jules and Navigator Doris; stumbling upon the names of my family on the old quilt in the Heritage House (top
left corner!); and of course long, soulful chats with Sharlene and Doris - my new family on Little Bay Islands. John and i are forever grateful.
I'll be back with Mum before too long and with her we will bring more stories of the Davis' in 1935, on beautiful Little Bay Islands. With love
and gratitude, (+the graveyard tour!) (+sailing with the bergs!) P.S. Take heart - resettlement or not, the stories will never die. XOXO.
- Taffy and John, from Weston, CT 25 June 2015
June 21, 2015 On a beautiful start of summer and Father's Day, we crossed from Pilley's Island to make our first visit to Little Bay Islands,
What beautiful scenery as we approached and many icebergs around. Driving to Aunt Edna's we met the most hospitable and wonderful
Sharlene, a wealth of knowledge, charm, and wit. Our accommodations were great and the salmon supper was divine. Following dinner we
the suggested hike to Pole Hill and it certainly was a highlight!!! later, walking throughout town, we met both locals and visitors alike.
Interesting all around! It certainly was a worthwhilevisit, and one that we could recommend to anyone. It was like stepping back in time and
reliving the memories of the past. Thank you Sharlene. It was great!
- Robert and Pansy, from Lewisporte, NL 22 June 2015
June 21, 2015 We had a great time and the food was wonderful. I am a big Newfoundland history buff and very interested and have read
many books on Outport life. Thanks for all the great history and information on Little Bay Islands. Please send book and Money LOL!!!
- Ken and Mary, from Sydney, NS 22 June 2015
June 17, 20 15 We were so excited to discover aunt Edna's Boarding House on Little Bay Islands when researching our Newfoundland
holiday. The province was on our Bucket List, but my husband said "I think Little Bay islands just might be the highlight of our
Newfoundland experience." He couldn't have been more right! Sharlene greeted us with the warmest smile, an island map came out and
we were off to explore. Dinner was a banquet of great home cooking and stories of island characters and events. Sharlene sent us off to
Doris..."Just walk in to her museum. It doesn't matter if she's not there." We did so and were again regaled with island tales and a tour of
her 3 properties here. We loved it all and really feel we were leaving as friends. Thanks for everything, Sharlene. Your are the best!
- Vicki and Richard, from Nanoose Bay, BC 17 June 2015

June 14, 2015 Sharlene-Many thanks for your wonderful hospitality, we enjoyed "Little Bay Islands"-the scenery, the hikes, and the special
quality of this magical place. How sad to see it pass into history and memories of the people who have lived here. All the best to you in the
future-whatever it may hold.
- Fran - PS the meals were fabulous!, from Halifax, NS 16 June 2015
June 7, 2015 The beginning of the 2015 season and getting the house open for next weekend. The island is surrounded with icebergs with
a gigantic layered one between here and Nippers Harbour. A huge flat one you can see from the bay headed this way if the wind keeps
blowing from the east, and lots to see from Pole Hill. It is going to be busy judging from the early bookings. Let the fun begin!!
- Aunt Edna, from Little Bay Islands 7 June 2015
Oct 4, 2014 Wow! What a beautiful week-end Wow! What a beautiful old house Wow! What a beautiful hostess Wow! What beautiful food.
Perhaps my last visit to LBI and that makes me so sad but this weekend brought back some wonderful memories. Thank you so much.

Sept 13, 2014 This is an incredible place, quiet and peaceful. What a beautiful home here! A gracious hostess, providing the best meals,
good conversation and lots of laughs. We felt welcome and at home. I'd second what my sister, Imelda just wrote! plus! It is the most
beautiful place ever. The meals were amazing, the presentation of the food was second to none - I've never seen it done so well before!!!
- Imelda and Anna, from Angel Cove, NL & CBS NL 17 September 2014
Aug 31, 2014 When I was searching for a B&B in Newfoundland this was the one I noted as "1st Choice" - when I looked back at my notes
I wasn't sure why - it must have been a secret inner feeling. But we had one of the best days of our lives. The hostess, the breakfast, the
sunshine, the hiking paths - with the benches, the railings and signage - The Poacher's Lounge Museum - thank you Selby. And the
fireworks. The huge sarry sky. The beauty of the Island and the contrast to the stories of its history. Little Bay Islands is truly Newfoundland
history of the strength of a special people. It has been an honour to have visited. Thank you-
- Pamela and Keith, from Kelowna, BC 31 August 2014
Aug 25, 2014 so nice to return to Little Bay Islands after 50 plus years and reconnect with fond boyhood memories of visiting my Great

- Ralph and Carole, from Regina, Sask 25 August 2014

looking forward to this for so long. XOX You have a place to stay in Toronto.
- Kim A, from Toronto, ON 9 July 2014
Sharlene, as you said this trip was in the planning stage for some two years-but it was worth the wait. From the minute you emerged from
behind the screen door we were smitten by your charm and hospitality. Thank you so much for making our stay at Aunt Edna's the grand
finale of our 2014 Newfoundland trip. "Hugs and more hugs"
- Tony B, from Toronto, ON 9 July 2014
July 8, 2014 Aunt Edna's, the ultimate Newfoundland B&B. The PORDS reveled in the landscape (for painting) and the hospitality. Our
welcome in Little Bay Islands was warm and generous. Sharlene could not have been a more gracious host. Her stories and menues are
the best ever. Our stay for five days topped off a wonderful return to this favourite place in Canada! Thankyou
- Maurice & Sheila, from Toronto, ON 9 July 2014
July 2, 2014 This is Newfoundland at its finest. Green Hills, blue sea, and rocky hills could make one get attached and never want to leave.
Aunt Edna"s has character and charm due in part to the decor but much of the credit goes to Sharlene. The food was five star and the
conversation no less enjoyable. Hot water and clean soft sheets had us sleeping like babies. Loved it all! Thankyou
- Nancy & Andy, from Kitchner, ON 9 July 2014
June 29, 2014 We loved it here, it was a nice time away. Our host was kind and gracious. We enjoyed your company and your lovely
home, one of the highlights of our trip. The Poacher's Lounge was a fu night of music. We pray a blessing on your home for receiving us so
well. We will always remember this.
- Allan & Brenda, from Woodstock, ON 9 July 2014
June 27, 2014 Our stay was not long enough but the memory I carry away from your place & Little Bay Islands will stay in my heart forever.

June 4, 2014 Adventure Canada arrived with a cruise ship sailing around all of Newfoundland. All hands came aboard for hikes, photos,
and lunch by the Home League. Everyone loved it, especially the birders. Great chatting with Aunt Edna - loved the old house! Thanks for
taking care of our bus driver!

Icebergs everywhere from the moment you arrive at Pilley's Island until you dock at Little Bay Islands. Almost close enough to touch. We
are surrounded by some of the biggest bergs the old-timers have seen. The one grounded at the ferry dock will probably be there all
summer!! What a sight! Check out Aunt Edna's Facebook page for my videos.
- Sharlene AKA Aunt Edna, from Little Bay Islands, Green Bay, NL 28 June 2014
You know you have a happy guest when they fly over the island on their way back to Labrador and they call you from the sky to wave
goodbye by rocking their wings at you....so cool, what a great way to end the summer!!!

and to relax. Thank you so much Sharlene.

Thank you very much for an unforgettable experience that I got from a stay in your magical B & B! I felt like a kid - causeless joy and

July 18, 2013 The goings and coming in this house is enough for a para-normal convention. This is a real Hallowe'en House. we loved the
old time furniture and the fixtures of the old time house but were sure glad to have modern conveniences and a super, super cook. The
food was divine and presented so elegantly. we hiked a lot of trails and enjoyed Pole Hill the most. The people were so friendly and
welcoming. You are a special person and I'm so glad our paths have crossed. I enjoyed meeting some of your friends and they were great.
They will always be there for you during this difficult time. You have so much to offer. You go girl. Lorna and Jeanette Long may your big
Jib draw! Gwen

openess and warm hospitality and all the history. 5 stars for sure!!

enjoyable. The surprise we had coming into your B&B was amazing. Loving older homes and antiques like we do and myself (Eileen)
coming from England it was an extra joy! Your friendly face and demeaner awaited us, we felt at home right away! Your food surpassed all
we have had before your table. We give you 5 stars. We will recomend all who might be visiting Newfoundland. Thank you so much, we

- Bob and Bridgitte, from Kitchner, Ontario 6 July 2012
July 4&5 2012 We've now driven the length and breadth of Newfoundland, but Little Bay Islands is the quintessential outport community.
Clusters of neat little houses around a clear, sparkling sheltered cove. Right in the heart of it all is the Victorian gem of Aunt Edna's. Putting
a real shine on this jewel is Sharlene, the friendliest hostess, the best cook and story-teller. We feel fortunate to have staged a two night
stay with her. Thoroughly enjoyed our time, meals and conversations. Awesome!!!
- Nancy & Paul, from Harrow, Ontario 6 July 2012

Aug 22-23 2011 Elisha and i happened to catch an early ferry that was doing and emergency stop. The weather has been fantastic! Sun
beating down the whole time. We had lunch in the Cafe, walked the Pole Hill trail and went down to back Beach and the water was so
warm we had to swim, it all felt like a private island and our own private beach. Charlene made us an elegant dinner and upon discovering
we were musicians insisted we have a kitchen party. Jim taught us Newfoundland songs and we shared some Beatles and Paul Simon.
Elisha and I mastered the ugly stick and named it Edna. Best honeymoon stop ever! love forever,

Sun Aug 21, 2011 Our best stopover yet on our tour of the Rock. What a unique house! You've also managed to make it a showcase and a
home away from home. The peace and quiet is very welcome. I hpoe that, should we come back in the next few years this community will
still be here...but with the two of you as advocates it a better chance for survival. Really glad we came-and it is our sentiment that we have
had five-star treatment at Aunt Edna's. Many Thanks,

July 28-30, 2011 We enjoyed our time with you more than we can say. You have done a beautiful job making "Aunt Edna's" a warm and
welcoming place for travellers. The food was delicious and we very much appreciated the time you took with our boys. Sam loved chatting
with Sharlene in the kitchen and cracking eggs. Both boys had a great afternoon fishing with Jim. We loved our hikes around the bay, the
iceberg, fishing and sitting with Mr. Parsons and the "boys" in his museum listening to tales of times gone by. We will keep in touch and
spread the word about 'Aunt Enda's'. We may be CFAs but we felt as if we came home. Thank you for everything!

their way to personally meet their guests on the ferry? PS We're coming back for a kitchen party :)
- Joni and Garry, from Oshawa, Ontario 7 August 2011
July 22, 2011 This is such a wonderful place. The house is beautiful and we loved our room and especially the meals. Our trip was to try

shall be back and we'll tell our friends about this beautiful corner of our island.

Jim & Sharlene, Don and Jim thank you for a great room, delicious food AND what I came to Newfoundland for: Meet the real people and
experience down-home fun!!! If I were told this morning that the boat couln't leave for a month I would not be disappointed. In all the many
places in this world I have been to NONE compare to the homey charm you two have shown! The great plus was the music of my youth -
all in the kitchen and everyone contributes a little. We will keep in touch. Thanks for the memories..

July 1, 2011 Jim & Sharlene, It's hard to put into words our experience here at Aunt Edna's the last two days. Your hospitality is second to
non, the food was five star and the natural beauty of Little Bay Islands wonderful. The four of us want to thank both of you for welcoming us
into your "home" and sharing life with us. And having a Beluga whale to interact with certainly added to the experience. Thank you.

- Matt Davey, from Dunedin, New Zealand 7 August 2011
Stayed July 2011, now HERE is a real GEM of a place! Not only great hosts, but can they cook!! A real treat to take the ferry, hoping to see
a whale (not this time),and a great time at a Newfoundland Kitchen Party. Can't thank you enough for such a great time. Jim & Sharlene,
We WILL be back, I have to practice my playing first.
- Don Smith/Jim Lau, from Picton, Ontario 5 August 2011
well i have not even stayed here yet, but i will be. my friend Sharlene will be a fantastic hostess as she always was when she lived in B.C.
so i highly recommend this place...and hope to be there in the next year or two or three for my first visit to Newfoundland. Love Pearl
Newfeld, Victoria, BC.
We were the first guests of the season at this quaint seaside turn of the century house and we were treated in a first class manner. The
bedroom was large comfortable and very clean. I made full use of the large antique bathtub where I relaxed in a lavender bubble bath
having been on a long road trip from Ontario. We were treated to the most wonderful seafood dinner presented on a large platter, laden
with salmon, shrimp,scallops and vegitables so artfully displayed that my husband took a photograph. To add to this was a very delicious
cod au grotin which should be resipe protected.I know the desert was good but the wine fogs the memory. After dinner we had a good
Newfie sing-a-long with Jim sharing some of the songs he had written.The next morning being an early riser I went to the kitchen, made a
pot of tea, stole a raison bun and went back to bed with my book. Breakfast was more then we could eat. The owners forgave me for
raiding their kitchen and stealing the bun. What a wonderful way to start our trip back to my home province and I can say with all sincerity
that it's B and Bs like Aunt Edna's that help keep Newfoundland's well earned reputation as bring Canada's most hospitable province.
