Before booking we ask that you take a moment to review our policies. These policies have been put in place to gaurentee that all guests staying at our properties are offered the experience we advertise.

Please keep in mind we have created these policies based on twenty years of experience in the hospitality industry.  We have accumulated a number of funny and not so funny stories that have lead to the creation of each of these rules, so please trust us when we say there is a good reason for each one!

Included below are our policies on the following:



Young Children

Cooking Shellfish in Vacation Homes

Our Policy Regarding Smoking:

All of our properties are non smoking.  

Our Policy Regarding Pets

We do not allow any type of pet to be brought into our rooms our vacation homes.  We understand that many people have very well behaved animals, however the potential for uncontrollable sound, damages, residual odors or allergic reactions of future guests is just too great. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Our Policy Regarding Children:


We can only rent rooms at our inn to families traveling with children above the age of 8.  The buildings we rent by the room, like most accommodations in Trinity, are  historic houses which were not built with the same sound proofing as more modern hotels.  Out of courtesy to other guests in our buildings, we now have an age minimum to stay in these rooms.  We can only allow one child in a standard room with a couple.  If Parents are traveling with more than one child above the age of 8 they must rent a vacation unit.

This does not mean that children under the age of 8 are not welcome at the Artisan Inn.  Our vacation homes are available for families traveling with children of all ages.  If you do not intend to use the kitchen for cooking we will be happy to include complimentary continental breakfast for your group.

Evening Dining:

The Twine Loft is a small intimate dining room that only seats 20 people during a sitting. Each sitting lasts between        1 1/2 - 2 hours. We ask that parents keep this in mind when deciding whether or not it is appropriate to bring their child into the Twine Loft.

Our 5:30 dinner sitting is open to minors as it is a more casual atmosphere.  Parents may accompany their children to the loft area during dinner if they are feeling restless at the table.

We support mothers who wish to breastfeed their children in the dining room. They are also welcome to use the upstairs loft where there is more privacy as well as comfortable seating.

We request that only adults attend our 7:45 dinner sitting as it is a more formal atmosphere. 

Our Policy Regarding Shellfish (Applies to rentals with kitchens):

We do not permit shellfish to be cooked in our vacation homes.  We apologize for this inconvenience as we understand that many people like to eat shellfish while in Newfoundland.  Some people may find this request unfair, but imagine for a moment that you are the guest walking into a 4 star vacation home and being greeted to the smell of someone else’s lobster boil which has seeped into the wooden floors, walls and the furniture.  It is not a very pleasant thought, it is?  It is even less pleasant for those with shellfish allergies.  We would be happy to recommend some great places for you to enjoy lobster and crab while in Trinity.
