We really enjoyed the staff at the lodge..Very friendly and they make sure everything is OK..We saw lots of humpbacks and kayak with a nice iceberg for an afternoon..Food is great and the place feels just like home..We will go back and reccomend.


“Whales, puffins and bald eagles”

We took a boat tour looking for whales and puffins. The icebergs were already gone. There were only 6 of us on the boat (including the captain) so that was nice. We saw whales, puffins and to our surprise about 30 bald eagles that nest in this little cove. What a treat!


“Good clean place/nice local people as staff”

Nice clean room (humpback), quiet and clean. Continental breakfast good homemade stuff. Good menu of local fare available all day. Ate at a couple of other local places-pricier, not as good, not as homey an atmosphere. I feel like I tried “real” cod tongues prepared the way the locals eat them, not some touristy “bar” version. We felt like we were visiting relatives. Great zodiac whale tour. Good hikes close by. Skegwink trail a short drive away is a must see.

Several members of our choir signed on to go on a kayaking adventure. They were thrilled with the scenery and appreciated being able to take a cooling dip in the fresh water waterfall they encountered along the way.


“Amazing whale watching!”

We had the most amazing whale watching trip with our captain, Gerald! As much as he goes out, he still enjoys the whales and really tried to get the best experience for us. We were blessed with many and very active whales. That’s something they can’t control, but our trip was one of the highlights of an awesome time in NL.


“Made to Feel Right at Home”

Spent two nights in this beautiful lodge and it was fabulous. Being on a budget, we chose the smallest, least expensive room when booking but ended up being bumped to a much larger room for the same cost because we had troubles with the Netflix in our room. We didn’t even ask to switch rooms, but Darlene insisted. This lady is a saint. She treated us like we were her children, even insisting we eat breakfast before heading out to explore Trinity (the home-made bread was to die for!) The location is ideal and the authenticity of the house is so nice to see. Absolutely beautiful. We didn’t do any of the eco-tours.. being Newfoundlander’s who grew up near the ocean we have seen plenty of whales and seabirds but all the other guests were raving about the excellent tours being offered. Thank you again for such a home-like experience. We loved it and will definitely be back.
