“An amazing getaway at Goose Cove Retreat!”
Reviewed 10 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

I've stayed here several times with friends and have thoroughly enjoyed every moment at this home; it truly is a retreat. This one of a kind sanctuary keeps the cabin vibe while providing extensive amenities and an extraordinarily relaxing experience. The beds were so comfortable I could barely get myself out of bed! I highly recommend this spot and am looking forward to my next visit :)

“A true retreat!”
Reviewed 7 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

This place is a retreat by the definition! Having been here three times now, I have found it harder to leave each time. The whole area of Trinity is incredible with little shops and the town of Trinity no more than a five minute drive away from the property. The property itself offers such a relaxing environment that is perfect for couples, friends, and colleagues to enjoy whether it be a family/friends or corporate retreat. As for the amenities, there was nothing we did not have! The kitchen was very well equipped for any type of cooking and the living room area was very comforting with an exceptional speaker system. Every bathroom had everything we needed, and having 3 full baths gave each sleeping area within the house a separate one to use before bed. Whether it be summer or winter, it is a relaxing and elegant property where you are sure to have a great vacation. I cannot wait to go again and would suggest the same for anyone else!

“So restful. Didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed 29 October 2012 for a stay in August 2012

I've stayed here twice and both times, I found it very hard to leave. We stayed with another family of four and had lots of space for everyone. The house has a great feel to it - so relaxing and comfortable. The kitchen is amazing as is the sitting area and bedding, but it's the deck that I love. Sitting out there with a blanket over your lap with a cup of coffee has got to be the best place on earth. I just wish it was mine :-)

We took a sea kayak trip out of Trinity and it was spectactular - we paddled right up to the dock of this house. It was fun to see the property from the water.

It's a splurge price wise, but I felt it was worth it.

“Go ahead and mix business with pleasure!”
Reviewed 20 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Spent the day in Trinity/ Elliston/ Bonavista area on business and came back to Goose Cove Retreat after a very busy day with some collegues. The decore is a perfect pairing of an executive level property and a warm and inviting getaway. Beautiful linens, sauna and a kitchen that made me want to return with close friends and cook something spectacular! Great deck for relaxing and the hot tub is a hidden gem. Nothing overlooked and something wonderful around every corner. Cannot wait to return with either friends or business associates.
