“Excellent weekend away”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Perfect couples weekend away from St. John's. The property is amazing, private and very well maintained. The kitchen has everything you'd need to prepare outstanding meals. Incredibly peaceful and a short distance from the town of Trinity. Every room is wired for sound. Bit pricey for 2 couples, but worth it in retrospect.

“Perfect place for the family”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at Goose Cove Retreat. It is a secluded, custom home located on the waterfront; it has terrific options for indoor and outdoor living. The home's close proximity to Trinity and Port Rexton place it in the heart of the Trinity Bight, close to great restaurants, the theater, whale watching, and hiking. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. It is a 10 out of 10!

“Absolutely fantastic weekend!”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Absolutely blown away by the quality of Goose Cove Retreat. We stayed the weekend with a group of 8 friends. It was absolutely fantastic. Every detail of the establishment is very well thought out, and it is nothing but pure luxury. We're already planning a weekend back there in the Fall, and imagine a trip in the winter months would be incredible too. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a break from the city and some relaxation. Cheers!

We spent 3 days at Goose. Cove this Christmas and we had a fantastic stay. There were 6 of us and there was plenty of room.
The layout is comfortable and the house has everything you need for relaxation and fun. Loved the hot tub, it really added to the experience. Goose Cove Retreat is everything it is advertised to be. Truly wonderful!

“Wonderful New Years Eve in Trinity”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

We spent a great holiday weekend at Goose Cove Retreat with our large extended family. We had plenty of space to spread out and enjoy all that this beautiful place has to offer. Large immaculately clean bathrooms, comfortable beds and linens, well stocked gourmet kitchen and lots of sitting areas in which to gather and chat, play games or strum your guitar. The hot tub, sauna and pool table were well used and well enjoyed. I was impressed by the Newfoundland artwork and many local books available. We especially enjoyed the outdoor fire pit and indoor fireplace. It is a very private setting with many scenic areas close by to photograph or just enjoy the view.

A wonderful vacation home that is every thing you see on the website and much more.
