The Artisan Inn is a waterfront bed and breakfast located in Trinity. The service was fabulous and everyone was very friendly. Trinity is a must see location and The Artisann Inn is a must stay bed and breakfast.

After a busy day of taking pictures, we arrived very late into Trinity. Our host was waiting up for us and was very gracious with showing us our room. Our room was very comfortable. The room had a large ensuite bathroom. We stayed for two nights and everything was great - the staff, the breakfasts, and the accomodations.

We had planned our trip to the Artisan Inn 6 months in advance, but just about a week of our arrival we discovered that the email that we had sent had the wrong date. Despite that it was our mistake, the host kindly offered to help us find other accommodations in the area since the Artisan Inn was full. We were delighted with the B&B she found for us.
We did visit the Artisan Inn for dinner, however, which was just superb! We had a fish entree that was perfectly prepared in a light wine sauce. From start to finish, everything was delicious!

Stayed 2 nights at Artisan Inn, Trinity, NL in early June 2009. Having read other opinions expressed here I think this place overrated. I agree that the hospitality extended by the staff is wonderful - all are friendly and helpful, (the owner was not present during our stay so we had no opportunity to meet her). Dinner at the Twine Loft was nice, not outstanding, but a very tasty home-cooked meal and certainly better than other dining options in town, if not a little pricey. The Twine Loft itself was a bit of a disappointment - it is right on the shore but the windows are too high to view the outdoor scenery when one is seated. The Artisan Inn itself is nice but also not so special. Our room was upstairs facing the water but an air conditioner positioned in the window ruined the view. It is an old remodeled house and every creak and spoken word is easily heard throughout the building - we found this quite disturbing at night when other guests were up late chatting in loud voices and coming and going up and down the stairs and in and out the doors. The room decor had character and charm - a bit of a mishmash of older collected pieces, more or less, but considering the artist's studio above the Twine Loft which is much touted, one would expect the walls to be more stylishly adorned. All of the notable local art is displayed in the Twine Loft and none in the guest rooms of the inn which are instead decorated in tacky-looking craftwork art - needlepoint etc.. The bed was a shame - it felt like an old, soft, very worn, saggy mattress. I think it unlikely that we would stay here again although we enjoyed the town and the people immensely.

We decided to take a two week tour of Newfoundland and started out from St. John's and headed toTrinity. Trinity is a beautiful community with a quaintness that is the epitome of Newfoundland. We arrived at the Inn and were promptly shown to our room. Accommodations were great.
We decided to have dinner at the Twine Loft - the dining room - a part of the Artisan Inn and Campbell B&B. The meal was amazing as was the ambiance.
Breakfast the following morning (included in the B&B price) was not quite so good (french toast), but the staff were amazing and the hospitality was second to none.

My family was spoiled by the owners John and Tineke GOW the family understands hospitality and customer care.

We travel extensively and this vacation was over the top because of weather, accommodations and food in Trinity provided by Artisan Inn and Twine Loft dining.

We will return again soon.

Superb location, lovely room, excellent food - just wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Tineke Gow and your friendly staff.

Why can't all B&B's be like this?
