In the “Heart” of beautiful Trinity 🌸
Christian’s Croft is a lovely little home perfectly located in the main area of the town of Trinity. The house was very clean and well equipped. Lily and Chris where very attentive, met us on arrival and check in with us to ensure we had everything we needed. Lots of things to do in the area. I would definitely recommend this place for a quiet stay in Trinity. Don’t forget to take in the fantastic theatre productions at Rising Tide Theatre.

Home away from home!
It is a perfect location, within walking distance to all the attractions in the village such as historical churches, whale watching, location where some Canadian movie were shot, theatre that produces local play wright and music. Easy access to walking trail. Great place to spend a few days, relax and enjoy the lovely weather. A good balance of shopping and restaurants. Just a short drive to Bonavista for the spectacular view of the coastlines, where rocks and the sea meets. Enjoy the delicate and beautiful puffins flattering, comrade diving, just to name a few. Last but not least - Lily and Chris are very wonderful host, they welcome us with warmth and open arms. They are not far if you need anything. Our stay at Christine Croft is very comfortable, cosy and lovely. It is very clean, well equipped with amenities (cleaned and fluffy towels, comfortable beds, hairdryer). It is our 2nd trip back. A historical cottage and host you not want to missed. Highly recommended!

Highly Recommend!
Truly a wonderful stay - Christian's Croft is a beautiful home in the heart of Trinity, hosted by the warm and welcoming Chris and Lily. The house is equipped with all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. It's close to hiking trails, historical sites, the marina and is overall a great place to stay to explore the surrounding areas (Port Rexton - Skerwink Trail, Elliston, Bonavista, etc.). Would highly recommend staying here, and we will definitely be back to visit again. Thank you Chris and Lily!

‘Came back Home’!
This is our 2nd trip back to Trinity. What a warm welcome, and wonderful to see Chris and Lily again. Christian Croft is immaculate, comfortable and well equipped with amenities above and beyond a hotel suit. The location is within walking distance to restaurants, theatre, hiking trial and shops. We enjoyed our stay and it is like returning home again!

Perfect in EVERY way! A great location for exploring Trinity.
From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the hosts Lily and Chris, to the time we left, we found this vacation home exceptional. The house was immaculate both inside and outside. It is evident the owners take pride in their property and do all they can to ensure an enjoyable stay. The kitchen was very well equipped, and spacious. The two washrooms, with hotel quality towels, were exceptionally clean. The couches in the living area were very comfortable, and in excellent condition. Upstairs, both bedrooms were spacious, and the beds with quality linens were extremely comfortable. While offering us privacy, Chris and Lily did provide suggestions for things we may enjoy while in the area. I would definitely recommend Christian‘s Croft and look forward to visiting there again.

Beautiful traditional property, excellent location
We found this historic property beautifully renovated, immaculately clean, and perfect for our stay in Trinity. We didn’t want to leave! The house was excellent for two couples as there were two spacious bathrooms. It was nice to sit outside in the garden, enjoying coffee. The kitchen was well equipped with Nespresso, dishwasher, everything you could want. The living room was cozy. The beds were super comfortable, and the entire property is well kept. The location is right in the heart of Trinity, across from the oldest wooden church in Newfoundland and just down the road from the Marina, craft shops, and the Trinity Pageant. A quick walk to the Twine Loft for dinner, everything about it was superb. Quick trips to Port Rexton, Bonavista and Elliston rounded out our stay. So convenient and welcoming. Thank you to Lily and Chris, the sweetest hosts, who gave us friendly, personal attention and made our stay so enjoyable and carefree. Highly recommend.

Perfect location in Trinity
The small town of Trinity has a lot of history to share, and Chris and Lily are doing their part with the complete restoration of Christian's Croft. Fantastic hosts, they greeted us upon arrival, and gave us great tips on things to see and do in the area. The home is beautifully restored, a mix of modern comforts with traditional styling. Everything we needed and more. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a base to explore Trinity, Bonavista, Elliston, Skerwink Trail, etc. A must-do is the historical walking tour in Trinity with host Kevin Toope, another recommendation from Lily and Chris.

home away from home
Christian's Croft is across the lane from a church built in 1833, in the lovely town of Trinity. The house is fully renovated and so comfortable - truly home away from home. Lily and Chris are a lovely couple, so friendly and hospitable, we left feeling we had made new friends! Lily's homemade blueberry jam was a very nice touch. We plan to return! Thanks Lily and Chris.
