Admire the Architecture of Trinity

Walk the quiet streets of Trinity and admire the architecture set against the fall coloursWalk the white picket-fence lined streets of Trinity during a time of year with fantastic light and take in the stunning architecture of clapboard saltbox houses.  If you are interested in seeing some of the historic sites after they have been closed for the season, let us know and we can do our best to arrange for a private tour of the municipal sites.  Even late into October, you will find the doors of the Green Family Forge open on weekdays when the two trained blacksmiths are preparing orders for the Christmas season.


Enjoy our properties and take time to do nothing

The Bonavista Peninsula is a stunning destination.  One of the most common complaints we hear upon check out is that guests forgot to schedule the time to do nothing.  When planning your schedule, remember that you may find yourself wanting to sit on a rock and simply stare out at the vast landscape or ocean for hours and take in the peace and calm that rural Newfoundland has to offer.  Even on days of cooler weather, curling up with a book in one of our historic properties can do wonders for the soul.

Star Gaze with a blanket on the deck

stargazing from the Twine Loft deck There is very little light pollution in the outport community of Trinity.  If you happen to be staying with us on a clear night, make a cup of hot chocolate, grab one of our cozy blankets and admire the Milky Way and the constellations of the Northern Hemisphere.
