“Paradise in Paradise”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in August 2018

Jaw dropping from the moment you arrive at the property. Perched on a hilltop overlooking a protected bay, Goose Cove Retreat has it all. Just minutes from historic Trinity, yet a world away in a tranquil and private ocean side resort. We enjoyed our family getaway by kayaking on the bay, soaking it up in the hot tub and roasting marshmallows by the fire pit. The property boasts every amenity imaginable including four unique bedrooms, media room, billiards/meeting room, gourmet kitchen, sauna, wood burning fireplace and much more. It was the perfect home base for short excursions to Trinity, Port Rexton, the Skerwink Trail, Elliston and Bonavista. The wild life was incredible with whales, puffins, bald eagle, rabbits and more, all a stones throw away. Gerry and Jim were fantastics hosts and added to the unforgettable experience. You have to stay here to believe it. Bravo!

“Beautiful property!”
Reviewed 25 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had the pleasure of staying at Goose Cove Retreat this past weekend. It was absolutely fabulous and so very relaxing. The property is beautiful and nestled in such a quaint community.

The house is equipped with everything you might need. There are so many things to enjoy with the fire pit, sauna, hot tub, and pool table. Of course, just a few minutes drive away is the lovely town of Trinity where you can enjoy a lovely meal and browse through the many shops as you take a stroll around the town.

Had a great long weekend with 4 couples. The house was perfect and the hot tub was great. Be warned that you have to climb a ladder to get to 2 of the smaller bedrooms, so it would be difficult if you had too much to drink or weren't fully mobile.

Very impressive kitchen, lovely modern decor. Sauna was also a treat.

“A beauty with the comforts of home”
Reviewed 21 January 2017 for a stay in September 2016

What a treat to stay here! This retreat had every comfort of home! Usually when you rest a house you have to bring all your condiments and food ! This place had coffee and condiments and some food items in fridge/freezer if needed! There were house coats and slippers and flip flops for the hot tub! There was a barbecue and fire pit! Canoes! Everything you could think of! Was just so nice! The care takers even brought us fresh fish to cook for dinner!

“Amost wonderful stay in Newfoundland”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our long over due visit to Newfoundland led us to the Goose Cove Retreat across the bay from the town of Trinity. The property is exquisite and perfect for a family of 8 adults.
The layout and style especially the kitchen and living room gave us so much space to relax. the high point was the large patio overlooking the bay with the fire pit and hot tub.
The large rec room with pool table and the sauna were a real bonus.
Our caretaker hosts Jim and Gerry met us there for a the grand tour and were very helpful during our stay. Jim brought around some delicious cod that we ate all week.
There is nothing we had to ask for ..it was all there
The area is wonderful great hikes, places to eat , bars and of course the amazing people...
Highly recommend the early morning canoe across the bay to Trinity.
The area is wonderful loads of whales, eagles and puffins to spot off shore in the vicinity
Thanks for the best holiday in years. ! so worried about recommending to a friend because
we want to come back !!

“Fantastic location for a girls retreat!!!”
Reviewed 25 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

What an amazing place! Four of us went out for a girls weekend retreat for my 35th birthday. We knew from looking online that it was going to be a beautiful place but we had no idea what we had in store! It was truly spectacular!!!!! The house is perfectly appointed, such a great space for entertaining, cooking together, playing games or just relaxing inside and out (we did it all)! The hot tub and suana were an added treat for sure. They have truly thought of everything. We can not wait to go back!! Highly recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing place that is truly a hidden gem!
