Gift Certificates

Help someone celebrate a special occasion with a gift certificate to the Artisan Inn or Twine Loft.

Gift Certificates can be purchased via our ONLINE BOOKING ENGINE.  If the amount you wish to purchase is not available please contact us directly.  You can either print the certificate and deliver it to the recipient or include the recipient’s email and schedule it to be emailed to the recipient on a particular date.  You will have the opportunity to write you own message to the recipient on the gift certificate.

Accommodations:

Because the prices of our rooms and vacation homes vary, we suggest people purchase gift certificates of a monetary value versus “a night stay”.  This also avoids the person with the gift certificate being limited to certain accommodations that may be full when they are looking to visit.

Monetary Gift Certificates can be used towards both accommodation and dining at the inn.

Pricing guide during the high season:

Rooms vary between $149-$225 plus 15% tax

Vacation Homes vary between $298 – $399 plus 15% tax

Dining:

Because our meals are a set price, you may purchase either a monetary gift certificate or a service gift certificate.  Monetary gift certificates can be purchased through the ONLINE BOOKING ENGINE and Dinner for 2 gift certificates must be requested directly by call or email.

For example

A gift certificate of $150 can be purchased and created through our website. You will have the opportunity to write a special message on the gift certificate and decide if you would like it emailed to you or set a specific date for it to be emailed directly to the recipient.

A gift certificate that shows no monetary amount and says “Dinner for 2” must be booked directly via email or telephone.

Dinner for 2 pricing
We can adjust the price appropriately for different part sizes

Should you decide to purchase a gift certificate for Dinner for 2, an 18% gratuity will be incorporated in the price of the gift certificate. This is because the guests will not be presented with a bill for the payment of these services at the end of the evening.

Dinner for 2 pricing (pricing may be subject to change based on 2020 rates)

2 X $60 3-course meal = $120

2 X 15% tax on $55 =  $18

2 X 18% gratuity on $55 = $21.6

Gift Certificate Total: $159.6

Using a Gift Certificate and Cancellation Policies

Using a Purchased Gift Certificate for Accommodation Bookings

A gift certificate that was purchased through our online booking system will display a code.  This code can be entered when making a reservation online to count towards your balance.  If the balance of your reservation is less than the total of your gift certificate, the digital copy of our gift certificate will automatically adjust the show the balance.  Please note that the value of the gift certificate used to secure the downpayment of the reservation will be treated as a regular down payment and cancellation policies will apply to the value of the provided gift certificate.

If you plan to use a gift certificate for dining and you are not a registered guest of the Artisan Inn please provide your gift certificate code when you make your reservation.

Using a donated gift certificate for Accommodations Bookings

Guests with donated gift certificates who are booking the exact value of the gift certificate will be required to provide a credit card that is valid between the date of booking and the date of the stay.  No deposit will be charged to the card at the time of booking, however, should guests cancel their booking, their card will be charged in accordance with the standard deposit/refund policy.  Example – if a guest cancels within a window that stated a deposit is only partially or non-refundable, the card provided will be charged for what would have been withheld from a deposit refund.

Blackout dates & conditions:  Certain blackout dates may apply to your accommodations gift certificate.

General: If someone has a gift certificate for 1 night in a vacation home, the Artisan Inn will, in most cases, waive the minimum 2 night stay (or 3 night depending on the vacation home).  The minimum night stay will not be waived if bearer of the gift certificate only wishes to reserve for 1 night and it creates two 1 night vacancies before and after the requested night.
Ex: if May 4, 5 and 6 were available for booking a particular house, the gift certificate cannot be applied to May 5th, unless the bearer also reserves and pays for an additional night stay before or after.

Specific Blackout dates: A donated gift certificate may not be applied to the Saturday of any long weekend.

Multi-day stays using a gift certificate

Guests booking a multi-day stay will be charged  a down payment for the first night stay and may apply their gift certificate to the balance upon check out.

If you have a service style gift certificate (Dinner for 2) or an older version of our gift certificates, issued before March 2018 (these usually display a number starting with AI or TL), you must bring the physical gift certificate with you in order to redeem its value.

Charitable Donation Gift Certificate Requests:

We believe it is important to give back to the community that gives so much to us. Over the years we have donated annually to a wide variety of organizations and individuals. We wish we could say yes to every donation request we receive from organizations fundraising for fantastic causes, however, as donation requests increase every year, we have decided to focus our support on organizations that

A: Contribute to our immediate community (The Trinity Bight/Bonavista Peninsula Region)
B: One of the inn’s employees either, benefits from its services, or heavily invests their volunteer time helping.

If you would like to request a donation for your organization, please answer the following questions to help us determine if the organization meets our donations mandate.

Please Describe the organization you are fundraising for.

What is your (the person requesting the donation) involvement with the organization?

How does the organization you are fundraising for impact the Artisan Inn and Twine Loft, its staff, or the Trinity Bight Community?

How will the donation from our business generate revenue for the organization?

Will it be used

  • In a silent or live auction?
  • As a raffle prize or door prize to entice higher registration at your event?
  • As a prize to a contest winner?
  • Other

How will the money earned from the donation be spent? 

Is this a one-time event or an annual event?

When do you need the requested gift certificate?

WHO TO CONTACT

Please email your requests to info@trintiyvacations.com

We prefer you contact us with gift certificate requests by email rather than phone so we may keep your information on file in case we increase our budget in the future or an organization that traditionally depends on an annual donation no longer requires our assistance.

HOW WE WORK

We can help with suggestions of fellow businesses that fit what you are looking for.  We hope you can recognize that these polices were all set based on past experiences. One day , long after we are no longer running the business, we may just write a tell all book revealing the multiple stories behind each policy that will make you both laugh and cry.

BOOKING ENGINE QUESTIONS

Search Engine Tips:
1. Don’t forget to select the category you wish to search in after you have picked your dates. Categories can be found in a column below the search dates.
2. If you are using the calendar to select dates, the last date you select is the date you are leaving, not the last night you are staying.
3. For dinner reservations select the same check-in and check-out date.
