“What a place!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Turned up at Dunfield, easy to find. On arrival note on the doo to phaone Ed. Phoned him and he appeared, talking like we had been friends for years. Offered us some of is homemade wine and talked away for an hour!!
The rooms creaked like an old saltbox house does. Ed renovated the house quite a few years ago. The rooms are not luxury high standard rooms, but small clean rooms. The floors creak, the bed creaks. But this adds character to the place.
At breakfast we met Marge!! We were having a coffee in the living room when she appeared at the door. Once you meet Marge you will not forget her. She is so tall!!!! The breakfast was excellent, and Marge showed us some Newfoundland Traditions, like Mummering, the Ugly Stick and the Newfoundland Trail walking stick!!! She got one of the guests up at during breakfast and sang a little song while he played the gly stick. Tears were rolling down our faces. What a place with enetertainment for breakfast!! The Rolling hills was a place where you could feel at home. The guests were very friendly and Breakfast lasted for over an hour with all the chattering going on.
Everybody seemed to get on.
Dont come here if you are looking for luxury, this is not the place for you. If you want somewhere down to earth with freindly hosts this is the place for you.

Lovely old house a short drive around the bay from Trinity (the trinity experience of the quaint historic village, without the $200 a night prices of Trinity!) we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The owners were very friendly, chatting with us about the town past and present. Very cozy rooms, small but clean and comfortable, and incredibly quiet. Breakfast was home made, we had a strata as well as freshly baked muffins and homemade jam, everything was delicious! Nice common area, homemade wine in the fridge, and a deck out front. One note is that this area is very dark at night, no streetlights, so arriving late at night would be a challenge to find the place.

Definitely would stay here again if in the area!

Room Tip: All 4 roooms looked about the same size, all with private baths. Rooms locked from the inside only...

We stayed at Rolling Hills for one night on our way to St. John's from the west coast. Trinity is definitely worth the detour off the Trans Canada. You really feel at home there because you are given freedom of the house. Ed's breakfast was the best! Fresh fruit, delicious casserole, and homemade partridgeberry muffins.

Ed also have us a tip to go out to the lighthouse to see some whales and we saw them right away. Don't miss Trinity and a visit to Ed!

A 3 day visit while in the area and the hospitality, food and rooms were second to no others we encountered. Close to everything the area has to offer yet off the beaten path and very down to earth in every aspect. Staying here is like staying with old friends. It's just that cozy.

Ed and Margaret were wonderful hosts. Their warmth and friendlyness made our stay special, and Margarets cooking was superb. We definately recommened The Rolling Hills B&B.

My wife and I had a recent stay at Rolling Hills B&B in Dunfield/Trinity for 2 nights and we enjoyed our stay. Ed and Marg are wonderful hosts as well as the rest of the family who helped around the house. They served us delicious breakfast and Marg's cheese strata is out of the world :-) We had some great talk about icebergs, NL history and culture with Ed and his friends one evening and the evening became more enjoyable when accompanied with his home-made wine :-). The hosts are utmost friendly people we have ever come across. Thank-you for your hospitality and sharing your time with us. We'll definitely recommend to our friends.

My husband and I stayed at the Rolling Hills in Dunfield for two nights in May and we couldn't have asked for a better stay! We were quite early in the season so we had the whole B&B to ourselves.

Ed was an absolutely wonderful host and we feel privileged to have met him. We had great conversations over wine in the evenings and he served up a delicious breakfast in the mornings as well. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
