Why CATHERINE CARPENTER chose Trinity Bay

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!

What makes this cottage unique

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!

More lovely that it looks on the website

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful, rejuvenating time at Commander's Keep. It was everything promised by the description and pictures, and MORE. The town of Trinity is lovely. The location feels like staying at the peaceful edge of the earth. Puffins are close by as are wonderful hikes. The property had all the touches of home. Thanks!

Fantastic views. Lovely property. Four Star

  • 4 of 5
Overall we would rate the property with a four star. The property location views were fantastic and better than expected. The property was very clean and stocked with all the necessary supplies such as sugar, flour, coffee, cookware including wine glasses, bath towels, bath soap and laundry washing liquid. The homeowner left helpful notes throughout the house regarding house maintenance. A greeting notebook was provided to the property guest; it was filled with informative events which occurred during our stay in Trinity. Local attractions were included in the notebook that guided us to other nearby areas to visit. This is a lovely property with very comfortable accommodations to just kick back to enjoy the views and the sounds of the water splashing against the rocks. At night, we enjoyed the light house light and sounds of the fog horn. The people in Trinity were friendly; we enjoyed our chats. We were greeted by the local management team and enjoyed their follow-up visit mid-week. We recommend taking the local Trinity Walking Tour with Kevin Toope (he was a wealth of information about Trinity history). We are so blessed to have found this property and to have experienced Trinity. Our minds drift back to Trinity with the hope to visit this property again.

Superb property in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5
This property is first rate. We spent 10 days there and the place was very clean, beautifully designed, completely comfortable and exceptionally well appointed- there was nothing we ever went to get that was not there. These are very thoughtful owners and it is a dream kitchen in terms of layout and supplies. Trinity itself is a marvel. You could spend all day on the porch looking out or go whale watching,. fishing, hiking, kayaking etc. There is much to do. Trinity has a theatre company also, many good restaurants, wonderful craft stores and the people are charming and welcoming and are proud of their history. This was one great holiday and our only regret was leaving. We were very well taken care of and hope to return.

Gorgeous home, incredibly views

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful home! My family and I were staying at Commander's Keep while in the Trinity area for a family reunion. We could not have been more impressed and comfortable. From the warm welcome of the Caretakers, Josephine and Hedley, to this gorgeous 5 star home and views from all the windows as well as the wrap around deck. Every little detail is met and surpassed in this perfectly designed and built but traditional looking Nfld. home. When visiting my home and family we will definitely stay again. This is one of the very few places that I have stayed that the pictures cannot do it justice. We literally gasped when we walked in, the home and the view of Trinity Bay and lighthouse is breathtaking. The house from top to bottom is incredibly clean, well maintained, extremely comfortable beds, well laid out for quite a few people to be very comfortable. The Dock Marina Restaurant as well as the Trinity Mercantile have great food, the entertainment at the Trinity Dinner Theatre was excellent. Thanks very much!

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.

We are delighted to hear that once again you were so happy with your visit to Commander's Keep! You clearly enjoyed having this as your home away from home. To have explored Trinity and the surrounding area as you did has added to the richness of the memories you now have to treasure until the next time! We would be pleased to welcome you back any time as our guests! ~ Catherine & David

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.
