Gazing across Ship Cove harbor in Trinity Bay, this rural retreat in Atlantic Canada is anything but rustic. The clapboard architecture reflects traditional styles from the late 1880s, and the guest rooms boast furnishings by a local artist, revolving artwork from the hotel's collection and gasp-worthy ocean views. Connected by winding paths, the buildings are spread across a hillside and include a dining room where guests can watch passing whales and icebergs depending on the time of year. The set menu is based on local, seasonal ingredients such as seafood, wild mushrooms and produce from the inn's own gardens, and of the two dinner sittings, the second is adults only, ensuring a peaceful meal. Of course, one of the inn's biggest draws is its natural setting. It's mere minutes from the coastal and woodland Skerwink Trail, where you might encounter eagles, osprey, fox and moose. Additional outdoor activities include boat tours to puffin colonies.
