We are pleased to officially announce our new brand, Edge of the Avalon Inn.
Trepassey Motel and Restaurant has had a rich history. It was established in 1980 and over the years has become a well-known fixture on the Southern Shore. It’s been a Nurse’s station, a Bed and Breakfast, and eventually transformed into a Motel and a Restaurant. What’s always been constant is the high level of customer service, and the memories that many people have taken with them of Trepassey. This is what we intend to build upon.
Our goal is to build a product that will continue to draw tourists and travellers to Trepassey and the area. There will be a variety of activities to choose from including scenic walks along the cliffs at Mistaken Point, bike riding and leisurely strolls around the town, salmon fishing, spa escapes, ATV exploring, and much more. There is plenty to discover here and so much peace and tranquility for those looking to escape the grinds of city life.
Regarding branding, we have re-positioned, re-themed and re-branded as the ‘Edge of the Avalon Inn – Life Begins at the Sea’. We seek to capitalize on the iconic value of Mistaken Point and the brand name value of the word ‘Avalon’ and linkage to the UNESCO World Heritage Site designation, should such designation occur.
Remodelling began during the Summer of 2015, when customers saw the introduction of Earhart’s Pub, which offers a variety of wines and spirits, and features draught beer from Quidi Vidi Brewery in St.John’s. This Pub will showcase live local entertainment at key times during the year, and includes a large screen HD display for showcasing key sporting events. The property will have a variety of travel options to choose from. Initially we will be offering 12 rooms, all totally redecorated and renovated. Some rooms will offer jacuzzi suites, private deck, family space, while others will serve the needs of travelling couples, with one and two bed options. Another addition will be that of a high tech conference room. This will provide options for corporate functions or events.
We strongly feel that the foregoing vision is at the right level of thinking and development for the property and its location. The snapshots you see provide a glimpse of what we hope to accomplish with regards to our Inn design. The goal here is to maximize the fabulous views of Trepassey harbour. These changes will not happen overnight, our goal being to have all complete for the start of the 2017 season.
