The Perfect Pre or Post St. John’s Conference Getaway!

The Perfect Pre or Post Conference Getaway

It is well known that there are no accidental tourists in Newfoundland.  Visiting this island takes organization, effort and time, but it is well worth the trip.

Many of the guests who stay at the Artisan Inn have come to Newfoundland to attend one of the various conferences held throughout the spring, summer and fall in St. John’s.  Because it takes such an effort and investment to come to the island, many conference attendees take a few extra vacation days to allow for exploring Newfoundland outside the city.

With such a vast island to visit and little time to explore it, many visitors make the mistake of trying to see too much and, as a result, spend most of their time in their car.

Just a 3 hour scenic drive away from downtown St. John’s, a visit to the town of Trinity offers the perfect getaway for those who wish to connect to Newfoundland’s past and outport lifestyle in only a few days.


With numerous hikes, boat tours, film sets, a theatre festival, heritage structures to tour, wildlife to spot and a variety of restaurants to sample from in the immediate area, a stay in Trinity allows visitors to have a wide range of cultural, culinary and historical experiences without long drives in between.

Spring and fall Conference attendees have an additional advantage of off season rates from May to mid June and Late September to November.
