Come stay at The Motion Retreat, a lovely, quiet,self-contained cottage overlooking Trinity Bay. In the morning step out the door for a quiet walk and let the sights, sounds and smells of the cliffs take you back to a time when schooners fished the bay and sailed the ocean. Explore the walking trails at Grates Cove, visit the beautiful Anglican Church or walk to the top of the Big Hill and view the historic Rock Walls.
