We stayed with Karen for two days while visiting Trinty, NL. She is an excellent host, helpful and cooks a great breakfast. She offered laundry service, which was really appreciated. She handed us a sample itinerary for a day that spent exploring the area and her recommendations for places to see/eat were perfect.
Thanks so much Karen.

We spent two nights at Maidment House at the end of June 2014 and back everything already written by the others who gave it a 5-star rating. Every piece of advice Karen gave us about Trinity proved to be spot on. (FWIW, Karen and Eric are among only 30 people who live in Trinity year round.) The house is a delight for those interested in century homes. Having renovated one myself, I was very impressed by Eric's workmanship. All of the original charm was kept (or increased) while the infrastructure -- plumbing, electrical, etc -- is totally modern. Outlets were even conveniently placed, a rarity in old B&Bs. The very comfortable bed is modern but fits superbly into the decor. Breakfasts were gourmet -- and healthy! We'll definitely stay at Maidment House on our next trip to Trinity.

We loved our stay at the Maidment House. Karen and Eric are amazing hosts, and have personally restored this property. Breakfast was 5 star, and small touches like homemade soap etc made this place extra special.

We recently stayed at this B & B July 12-13. The house has been refurbished but maintains the "old character" . Karen our host always made sure we had everything we wanted and often offered tie bits on what to see & do in the area.
She is also bilingual (english/french) which was helpful for my life partner. I would encourage Karen to advertise this fact.
Breakfast were always good and nourishing with plenty of food.
The only "down side" would be if you are a TV fanatic there is no TV in the rooms only the main living area.
Nous avons resté ici en Juillet. La service étaient superbe et aussi les déjeuners. Karen est un hôte aimable et parle en français. Le seul "inconvénient" serait si vous êtes un fanatique de télévision, il ya pas de télévision dans les chambres seulement le principal espace de vie.

We recently visited the lovely town of Trinity, Newfoundland. Maidment House was an excellent choice for our accommodations. The lovely historic home was very comfortable and the breakfasts were superb. But most importantly, the hostess went out of her way to assist us with our vacation. Karen should be the ambassador for the Trinity area! She knew exactly who to call and make arrangements for our whale tour and she made excellent suggestions for hiking and other sight-seeing opportunities. We were so fortunate to experience her knowledge and guidance. We would definitely come again. Thank you ever so much! Andy and Kathy Bell. Anola, Manitoba

Maidment House is a B & B in a heritage home in Trinity, operated by Karen Huys. We selected it on the recommendation of friends, and were not disappointed. We stayed 2 nights in the Gardenview room on the second floor, with a queen bed and ensuite bath, $125 per night including breakfast. The accommodation was excellent: clean, comfortable, with a view out over the garden in back to the southern part of the town. Breakfast was delicious. What made our stay especially memorable was Karen's warm hospitality and assistance. She was not only prompt in email correspondence, but also sent us, unsolicited, a lot of advance information on Trinity, so on arrival we already had a good idea about what we wanted to do. It is a beautiful town, with many heritage buildings, and restrictions on new construction in order to maintain its historic atmosphere. There is a daily morning walking tour that is excellent, and a fine theatre company, as well as good restaurants and shops. We would gladly return. A word of advice: we booked 6 weeks ahead and were not able to get the dates we requested (so we adjusted our travel schedule!); more in advance is better!

Located in the middle of this quaint and fascinating village of Trinity. Historic house beautifully restored. Karen who manages the house is friendly and very informative about the area and things to do. Gourmet hot breakfast each morning. THe rooms are different in size and appointment, so you may need to specify what you want, Reasonable price for the terrific accommodation.
