The Layout and Location
Blueberry Cottage is a charming vacation home built in 2017 and designed by Newfoundland architect and artist Frank Lapointe. The house sits on a promontory facing the ocean, with views of historic and quaint Trinity Village. Go whale watching, hike world-class trails, including Skerwink Trail, picnic along our coastal vistas, or perhaps spot an iceberg or whales as you drive along coastal roads. With walking access to all attractions of Trinity, this fully appointed and sunny cottage is the perfect place to relax, unwind, breathe the fresh ocean air and be as busy or relaxed as you want to be. The master queen suite and bathroom ensuite are located on the main floor, allowing easy access for those with decreased mobility. The ensuite bathroom has a shower stall. The main floor also has a large living space, fully appointed kitchen, dining area and half bath. The second (2 twin beds) and third (king bed) bedrooms are located on the second floor along with a full bathroom equipped with bath/shower. A laundry room in the basement level may be used by guests during their stay. Enjoy the spectacular views and soak up the natural surroundings while sitting on the front deck which overlooks the ocean and scenic Trinity Harbour. Please note that while this property has excellent ground floor features it is not a designated wheelchair accessible property. Please feel free to contact us

One of the great advantages of an Artisan Inn Vacation Home is that the inn’s staff are always on hand to provide assistance to guests with self-catering homes. If the wi-fi is down, you cannot operate the TV, if you experience a plumbing issue or if you just need directions to the nearest grocery store, immediate assistance will be provided to you with social distancing protocols in place.
Second Floor: King Room, Twin Room, Full Bathroom
Traditionally, guests must check in at the Artisan Inn’s office located on the second floor of the Twine Loft, where they will receive a town orientation and be taken into their vacation home by a staff member. COVID-19 UPDATED CHECK-IN: During the timeframe that Covid-19 and close contact is a concern, The Artisan Inn will offer a contactless check-in and provide orientation information via email and or video call. Check In: 4pm You may check in earlier if the property is ready. If you wish to check in after 6pm please notify the office ahead of time. Check Out Time: 10am Our check out time has been moved from 11am to 10am to permit our staff the additional time required to clean the vacation home in a manner that protects both staff and guests from contact with Covid-19. If the house will be empty for a few days after your departure we will let you know if later check-out is possible. Photo October 2019
STANDARD POLICIES & COVID-19 UPDATES:
CLEANING FEE: A $35 cleaning fee is applied to each booked accommodation to cover the additional materials and human resources required to clean a property in a manner that protects both staff and guests from contact with Covid-19. We have always prided ourselves on cleanliness which is why our added cleaning fee is fairly minimal. We do need to disinfect and not just clean certain items in the house that typically would not have been disinfected in the past (ex the lock mechanism of every window, the pull cord of every blind, every dish in the house even if it has been washed already by the previous guests.) If a room or house is booked for multiple days, the cleaning fee is charged ONCE for that entire reservation. If multiple accommodations are reserved in a booking, a cleaning fee will be applied to each separate accommodation booked. EX. Someone booking 2 different vacation homes to accommodate a group would pay a $70 cleaning fee ($35 per property).
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF GUESTS: If you are renting other properties with us or in the area, please be advised that that the province of Newfoundland and Labrador has restrictions on the size of gatherings permitted. Should these restrictions be lifted, please be aware that the Artisan Inn still has its own max capacity limit. The max number of guests who may sleep in this house is 6 people and only guests staying in the property may enter it to protect our staff from extra exposure. Given Covid-19 concerns the inn will be strict with enforcing this policy and guests will be required to sign a compliance waiver recognizing our rental policies.
RENTAL POLICIES: Pets, Smoking, the Cooking of Shellfish, Parties and Wedding Related Events are not permitted
