The Travel Reviewer, 'Escape Here', in naming the 10 Most Breathtaking Views to Visit in Canada, described 'The small village of Trinity [as] 'postcard perfect'! Exquisitely picturesque: 360 degree views from the top of Gun Hill high above Trinity, one can see not only Trinity but far away outports, the Harbour all 'round, rolling hills, ponds & lakes extending inland forever, and ocean as far as the eye can see! Commander's Keep, on its clifftop perch is afforded these panoramic views, of Town and Sea alike, from the huge private wraparound deck. This experience is unforgettable!

Though this home has only been on The Nuddick (defined as a 'bare hill') since 2010, the local residents tell us that we 'changed the skyline of Trinity'...only after having this salt box house design accepted and approved by the Trinity Historical Society. Everyone agrees that it looks as though it has been standing on this property for over 100 years; it fits with the existing historical buildings so well.

It affords the guests an incredible view of the Harbour and ocean beyond, and a unique view of the town from its vantage point of being one of the highest points along the Harbour!

From every window of the house, one has a picture perfect view of true Newfoundland scenery!

THOROUGHLY IMPRESSED, AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
We first discovered Commander's Keep when friends gave the property and the town of Trinity a glowing review. On their recommendation, we spent a week at the house in late August 2012. After being thoroughly impressed the first time, we returned in early June 2014 for another memorable vacation. What a treat: perched on a hilltop, and with its waterfront vantage point, the house offers unobstructed views of the harbour, the ocean and the town. From the outside, the house fits perfectly in the town’s plan to protect its historic character, but inside, it offers modern, open concept main floor with living room, dining room, and fully appointed kitchen. Upstairs, three spacious bedrooms allow you to retire in comfort. Finally, there are luxurious bathrooms for everyone. On sunny days, walk to the shops or restaurants in Trinity, take in a play at the Rising Tide Theatre, drive to the Dungeon Provincial Park, see the puffins and cellars in Elliston, visit the site where the Random Passage TV series was filmed and learn about the history of the region. Don’t forget the lighthouse in Bonavista, especially when the seascape is crowded with icebergs. On rainy or foggy days at the house, enjoy the books, games, DVDs or the excellent sound system. Don’t forget your camera: the vistas inspire every photographer. Finally, plan another visit: we did and are not regretting it.

FANTASTIC STAY!

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely house & fantastic setting! Commanders Keep sits close to the beautiful little village of Trinity, but offers peace & privacy. The deck overlooks Trinity Harbor with the lighthouse in the distance.
We had sunny, brilliant days & a few rainy, windy days, but it didn't matter- the house was so inviting it was hard to leave! My husband & I enjoy doing much of our own cooking, it was very easy to do in the well stocked kitchen. For a little variety there are several wonderful little restaurants in town. We had worried a bit that it might be too "touristy" in Trinity- but not at all. Just the right blend of things to do but kept its very personal, small village flavor.

Trinity is located off of a road that joins on Regional Road 239, which is off Hwy #230, which joins off Trans Canada Hwy. 1 from St John's.

Commander's Keep Vacation Home is located on an isthmus of land that forms the most easterly aspect of the town of Trinity, Trinity Bay. Its lofty seat is on the area of land called 'the Nuddick'. This location gives a 270 degree view of the Harbour, with the Lighthouse, the Skerwink Cliffs, and the ocean beyond! Behind the house lies the town, with Gun Hill as the 'backdrop'. White churches, and multicoloured traditional Newfoundland style houses, shops, and the Theatre create a picturesque panorama of another variety for our guests to enjoy, just looking out every window of the house.

Other Activities: Hiking, biking, wild bird and game watching, kayaking, theatre, icebergs viewing

Golf: A 50 minute drive away, there is a world class Championship golf course outside of Terra Nova National Park.

A smaller, also challenging, golf course is located closer by at The View Golf Course, 30 minutes away.

Notes:
Free wireless. Children need close supervision at all times by their parents as the temptation to wander and explore is forever present. Children are solely the parents' responsibility. There are steps into the house, then flat access to the wraparound deck from the main floor, and stairs to the second floor bedrooms; sorry, no wheelchair accessibility. Ideal for a family reunion for the whole family: grandparents to the 'young people'! A big antique table & chairs for family dinners overlooks the water. A high end entertainment system, games, books, and movies insure good times indoors while enjoying phenomenal views of the harbour, cliffs, lighthouse and the ocean beyond! A fully equipped picnic basket and blanket are available for the use of our guests to go to a nearby meadow to enjoy the spectacular scenery and meadow flowers! No need to go out to do laundry as the latest in washing technology is on the premises. Weekly housekeeping is available for an extra fee.
