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!
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.
