Trinity Cabins
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We stayed at Trinity Cabins for 3 nights and were really taken back in time - like on a camping trip with our folks! There is even a history sign on the side of the street in front of the office that tells how the cabins started as simple shelters, then had wood stoves, then running water, then "1953 standard" comfort, then full hot and cold shower... Yes, everything feels like it has been frozen in time since the 1970's and kept running and sufficiently clean since then. We were in the "Beauty" cabin, which has 3 bedrooms: One with a queen bed, and two tiny ones with one double bed in each. Theoretically fits 6, but we were happy to be just the two of us, because there was almost no storage space, so each of the tiny room with a double bed served as a convenience place to store our suitcases and spread our stuff on the bed. One little thing: the location isn't what Google Maps shows. It is actually still in Trinity, but about 1KM before town, overlooking a bay that isn't as pretty as Trinity Bay, although still pretty quaint and relaxing. Would we stay there another time? Definitely yes.

The only reason I didn't give this amazing resort with the greatest staff 5 stars, was because the beds were a bit old and hard on my back (and im still in my twenties...)...Otherwise it was great and I highly recommend it!
Note, they have laundry machines! ice cream & cold beers, and each cabin has its own bbq and outdoor seating space....plus this place is a real slice of history! The first resort in all of Newfoundland (est. 1948)

Room Tip: Make sure to hike the Skerwink trail!

The price was good and the cabin was clean. The owners/managers are very, very (extremely) friendly and kind. There seemed to be a bit of a problem with the stove in that when you plug it in, the burners both come on even though their dials are set to 'off'. I guess that's why it was unplugged. The fridge is a tad on the small side. Bring bug repellent! (for outside the cabin, not inside.) Also the wifi was quite poor... had to hold the phone in the window sill just to get one bar of reception.

The cabins are a 5 minute drive from Trinity so you can't really walk anywhere from them.

on-line reservations handled promptly and professionally - wonderful hosts - friendly, generous and knowledgeable - cabins like when we were kids - clean, comfortable, little tired when comes to beds, investment in new pillows wouldn't go amiss - great breakfast at Pearls restaurant across from grocery around the corner - Thanks for trip down memory lane

A friend of mine who grew up in Newfoundland recommended this spot. My husband and I stayed just one night, but would really have liked to stay longer. The small cabin had more than enough room for us and a nicely equipped kitchen. This would be a great stop for a small family, and they have an area for RV's as well. It's about a 10-15 minute walk into historic Trinity, but there's no sidewalk so be careful with little ones. Staying here was a bit like traveling in a time warp to a friendlier and more innocent time.

I would echo the other reviews here. This is a step back into the '50's, when people were nice and life was simple. The owners are lovely people and will chat over coffee with you in the lounge off the office. The accommodations are basic and fine. Don't come expecting the Ritz and you won't be disappointed. While you're here, check out historical Trinity.

Newfoundland was not even part of Canada when Trinity Cabins were founded in 1948. Today, they are a nostalgic reminder of days past. Be forewarned -- if you want all the comforts and conveniences, you will not like the place. The 3-room cabins are sparingly furnished with furniture that shows its age. The television is a 13-inch black and white that gets one channel. Wireless Internet is spotty, although you get a good strong signal if you go down to the office/canteen across the road. The cabins include a small fridge, two-burner stove, and all the plates, utensils and pots and pans you might need. Glenn, the owner, and his staff are very friendly and helpful. Rates can't be beat in the Trinity area -- my wife and I paid $65 for our cabin. This is the kind of place Ward and June Cleaver might have taken the boys in 1958. Places like this are vanishing fast, so enjoy one while you can.
