Gazing across Ship Cove harbor in Trinity Bay, this rural retreat is anything but rustic. The clapboard architecture reflects traditional styles from the 1800s, and the guest rooms boast furnishings by a local artisan, artwork from the hotel's collection and gasp-worthy water views. The buildings are spread across a hillside and include a dining room, where guests can watch passing whales in season. The set menu is based on local ingredients, such as seafood, berries and mushrooms, and produce from the inn's own gardens. One of the inn's biggest draws is its natural setting — minutes from puffin colonies, icebergs and the coastal and woodland Skerwink Trail.
