“lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

staying in "downtown" Trinity is perfect both for the chance to stroll this lovely and historic village and to use it as a jump-off to explore the many closeby sites (Skerwink Trail, Random Passage site, Port Union, Bonavista and The Dungeons and the root cellars and puffins at Elliston) young family who operate the Maidment are delightful - breakfast and cook are just great - rooms are fine and have a shared living room

Best gourmet breakfasts, sensitive to food allergies. Beautiful and serene.

Staying at the Maidment House was a highlight of our trip to Newfoundland. The room was clean, comfortable, and had a lovely view of the town. The hostess was very warm and knowledgeable of the area. The best part, though, was the gourmet breakfasts. My mouth still waters. Exceptional.

We spent three nights at Maidment House, a small B&B with three rooms in the historic preservation district of Trinity. This town has an official population of 35, since the census is done in the winter. In Summer, it mushrooms into a small town with multiple restaurants and a creditable summer theatre- right across the field from Maidment House. As a place to stay, Karen has made a friendly place with books all around. We had the middle room, with a huge tub in a private bath. We dove into explanations of the distinct society and history of Newfoundland, and Karen's indications of the neighboring trails and services. The breakfasts were of top quality; she shared recipes and techniques that we still use.

Maidment house is a beautifully restored house in the historic village of Trinity. It is named after the original owner, Enoch Maidment, a successful 19th century cobbler. This is an intimate B&B with only three guest rooms. Our bedroom room was large and airy, tastefully decorated with traditional Newfoundland furniture, artwork and quilts. The house also features an attractive back deck, where we sometimes had a glass of wine before embarking on our evening plans. As Trinity is a small village, you can walk anywhere from Maidment House. The Rising Tide Theatre is a short stroll directly across from Maidment House.

Although Karen the inn-keeper is originally from Ontario, she has an in depth knowledge of the area with many suggestions on what to see and do and where to eat. She is an accommodating host and cooks wonderful breakfasts. Her husband Eric is a Trinity born and raised local contractor who restored the old house.

I’m sure you will enjoy your stay at Maidment House.

This lovingly restored home nestles in the village within a two minute walk to the harbour. Quaint, stylish and cozy with hand crafted Canadian quilts, top quality beds and linens and well appointed baths Maidment House is a gem. Our host Karen is warm, gracious and a gourmet cook--presenting us with amazing breakfasts including wild blueberries picked by herself. Our stay was enhanced by her knowledge of people and places--even introducing us to a traditional Newfoundland rug hooker when she discovered our interest in this art. We chose to visit Trinity because of its live performing arts centre--we were thrilled to experience the best of Newfoundland culture and hospitality.
