“Best part of my Newfoundland experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

My friend and I stayed at the Rolling Hills for two nights at the start of June and it really was my favourite part of my trip to Newfoundland. Ed and Margaret were amazing hosts and made us feel right at home. With Ed's homemade wine, Margaret's hearty and tasty breakfasts and their advice on local things to see and do, they really went out of their way to accommodate us. They even lent me their car and gave me food out of their own fridge to cook for dinner one night! The rooms each had their own bathroom and were very clean and cute. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

Margaret and Ed certainly know how to make you feel comfortable in their wonderful B&B! John and I enjoyed their many local stories of the history and people in the area. Ed's sense of humour while sharing a glass of his homemade wine in the evenings kept us entertained! Margaret made us some wonderful, hearty breakfasts , demonstrated the use of an ugly stick, and invited us to a "kitchen party" at the local school where we met friendly parents and students at an entertaining concert fundraiser. We hiked the amazing Skirlink Trail, checked out puffins, visited Trinity, drove up to Bonavista and were content to return to Dunfield at the end of each day.

Room Tip: The rooms were all welcoming with nice quilts on the comfortable beds. The room over the living room...

We arrived here for our last 3 nights of a 12 day adventure. We found out about it as Marge's sister who is a friend said that we had to stay at the Rolling Hills, and experience Newfie hospitality. When we got to the front door the note that tells you how to find Ed had blow away in the wind. We found the phone number and Ed. said to pick whichever room we wanted and that he would be up in a few minutes. My wife and I were a little shocked as the rooms were rustic compared to most others we had been at. But when Ed arrived and invited us down to his house for home made soup and his home made wine we were hooked. If you want to experience the friendliness and caring of the Newfies this is the place to go. The amazing breakfasts that Marge provides and the great local information and gret beds. Dick and Meri.- 3 nites not enough.

Having never been in this part of NL, we weren't sure if this B&B would be a bit out of the way. Our fears were quickly alleviated once we arrived. Dunfield has a charm of its own, and we loved chatting with the locals and visiting the shed where they cleaned and fileted their cod catch (first day of recreational cod fishing). It is also close to New Bonaventure for the Rugged Beauty Tours and Random Passage- 2 absolute musts experiences while in NL. The B&B itself is made very special by Ed and Marg- two of the nicest, most down-to- earth people we have ever met at a B&B. I can't say enough about them. Wonderful sense of humour, very knowledgeable, and will take time to chat with you. Evening chats with Ed and other guests, enjoying Ed's wine, was a really nice way to end the day. Marg's breakfasts were amazing- so accommodating for my GF needs, and my husband loved all her special breakfast casseroles, muffins, etc. Also, we really appreciated her tips on good places to eat en route to Bonavista. Our 3 night stay here made our trip to Trinity area a most memorable one.

We chose to stay in Dunfield, instead of better-known Trinity, just 5 km away, to visit this beautiful area. We walked the Skerwink Trail on a magnificent sunny day and went to a kitchen party at the rec centre in Trinity East, both recommended by our hosts Margaret and Ed. The breakfasts were tasty and copious. This was one of our best B & Bs in Newfoundland. Sorry we missed the Rugged Beauty boat tour, though, because of bad weather.

Room Tip: All the rooms have private bath and are about the same size, on the small side, but there is a nice...

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...
