For 20 years, the Artisan Inn has been providing unique experiences for travelers to the Bonavista Peninsula of Newfoundland and Labrador. This 4-star Inn is located in the historic outport town of Trinity where guests enjoy comfortable accommodation and casual fine dining with spectacular views of scenic Trinity Harbour. We are located close to the theatre and many natural and historic attractions.

Two of the Artisan Inn's buildings date back to the mid 1800s. The Campbell House and The Gover House both became recognized as Registered Heritage Structures in 1993. They have both been restored to their original era inside and out (plus a few modern amenities), offering visitors the unique experience of staying in a "living museum" while visiting the town.

I remember one magical evening on the deck of the Twine Loft, bundled in Tineke's warm fleece blankets, sipping wine while listening to the Once as the full moon rose over the cove. Looking forward to a dinner or two this summer when Chip and I return to Trinity for the summer.
