"Everything a Bed & Breakfast should be."

TRIPADVISOR.CA

Built in 1892 for Enoch Heber Maidment,
a local cobbler, our house served as
shoe-making shop and family home to
the Maidments, and later, the Ivany family.
After a loving, three-year restoration, Karen
and Eric opened Maidment House Bed & Breakfast.
A third-generation carpenter, Eric has preserved
the traditional architecture that makes Trinity
special. Maidment House offers old-world ambience
and modern comforts.

We request three days advance notice for bookings, but may be able to accept last-minute requests if we aren’t busy with other things. We ask that you be mindful of our safety, as well as your own, when making a decision to stay with us. We will endeavour to leave guest rooms unoccupied for one night on either side of each booking. We offer a gourmet continental breakfast, prepared from scratch, which can be served in-room or prepared as a take-along snack, by request.We may offer the option of a voucher on the weekends for a hot breakfast at a local restaurant.

Our rates include a breakfast for two, but do not include taxes (H.S.T. 15%).

We charge $25 for an additional guest. We deduct $10 from the room rate for a single guest. Off-peak rates are in effect until and including the night of May 14th and recommence October 1st. Off-peak rates: $139 for a single night, or $129 when staying two or more nights.

We provide guests with our own handmade body products.

Children are welcome, but please let us know when booking to ensure that we make the best arrangements for your family. A cot may be available with advance booking. We are happy to provide a portable play pen and high chair.

Cancellation policy: We take a deposit for the full cost of your stay. Refunds will not be offered. Partial cancellations may result in the cancellation of your entire stay, or you may be required to pay for all room nights booked, at our discretion. In the event a guest fails to show and does not contact us prior to 11pm, their deposit will be forfeited and the reservation cancelled; we will attempt to rebook the room for all subsequent room nights. In the event your arrival is delayed and you wish us to hold the room for the remaining dates of your reservation, please let us know.

Our Food

We treat food with reverence because we truly believe in the healing power of whole food, prepared with love, from scratch, with the finest ingredients. We’re passionate about the life-changing power of food for good health.

Our breakfasts always include fresh fruit, house-made gluten-free granola, homemade organic yogourt and locally-roasted, freshly-ground coffee.

We are happy to set up coffee or put on the kettle for the early-riser.

For those of you with sensitivities to foods, we recognize that each of us has unique needs, and make every effort to accommodate. We are quite at home with gluten-free, specific carbohydrate and paleo diets. We gladly work around allergies and offer vegetarian/vegan options on request. We appreciate advance notice of any food issues as we often have multiple issues to work around, have to travel some distance to source ingredients, and don’t like to repeat a meal offering to our guests.

Why choose a stay with us?

Karen grew up in Ontario, and moved to Trinity after coming on holiday in 2001. She has embraced traditional outport life and can be found logging with Eric winter time, stacking lumber in the mill yard or splitting firewood, maybe even skinning a moose in the fall of the year. Karen believes in a healthy home, uses fibre-based non-toxic cleaning materials, and provides her own hand-made, quality soaps and shampoo bars to guests.

A Trinitarian by birth, Eric’s earliest ancestor in Trinity, was a Norwegian who jumped ship in 1805. A third generation heritage carpenter, Eric crafts traditional wooden windows, doors and mouldings and carefully restores properties in town. He received the Southcott Award from the Newfoundland and Labrador Historic Trust, in 2018, for Outstanding Contributions to Heritage Trades. Our passion for, and commitment to, craftsmanship is evidenced throughout our home.

We work and reside year-round in Trinity and are watching a traditional way of life disappear. We comprise a tenth of the winter population in the heritage district of town and when our son, Benjamin was born, he was the first child born to Trinity in a decade. When you stay with us, you keep livyers in Trinity - generations of family in the place of their roots. Who better to provide a sense of place, share the stories of life here, showcase the landscape and introduce you to the characters that make for a memorable visit?

We understand that being away from the comforts and routine of home can be challenging and we invite guests to ask for what they need, whatever it might be.
