In 2018 we humbly accepted the CBDC Tourism Business of the Year award in recognition for the contribution we have made to our industry in the province. We were in shock, then and now still, while also still being so appreciative of the recognition we received from our peers. We fully admit that there is still more work to done here in our hometown of Trepassey and for the region. As an organization we are committed to doing our best to showcase what all those that are from here have known since the beginning; this is God’s country. There is something so wild and untapped about this place and we want to share it with all those that walk through our doors.

Moving forward into this years plans we want to continue fostering relationships with keen and driven partners to create memorable experiences for all those visiting us on the Irish Loop. “The Loop” is more than just a drive, it is in fact a destination, and one with so many secrets to discover. This includes showcasing the artists in the area with their gifts of storytelling, crafting, and music. Music is a big part of the culture here of that there is no doubt. We can’t wait to share all of the talent that is in our own backyard, along with welcoming some traveling minstrels as well. New this year will be our artists in residence program that will see us working on a business to business model with the creators from the province. We would like to become a hub for the arts and look forward to creating some working partnerships with the artistic community in both the province and abroad.

Working with our locals to develop interactive experiences that highlight the folklore and historical moments that we have here in abundance is such a pleasure. We are laying the foundation so that there will be something to do seven days a week here on #TheEdge throughout the summer. Herb and Marion Sutton have become a fixture at the Inn and their screech-in ceremonies are becoming well known throughout the province. Tony Power will be back with us this year to spin tales both out in the community via a guided hike and at the Inn for a more intimate storytelling experience. Good food can elevate any adventure whilst one is traveling. This season we will continue to feed our guests well while also celebrating the historical connections to the area, including our 5 course Titanic fine dining experience.

Our team will be heading out to this years Hospitality NL conference in Gander to continue to do our best to represent our region, while also looking to strengthen partnerships with other passionate members in our industry. In the meantime we will never forget all those who have helped support us along the way, believing in our vision when we were just doing what we do, day in and day out, in the life of an Innkeeper.

This business isn’t for the faint of heart which is why we often say that it takes a village to raise an Inn, and by the by it’s the truth. Our staff are the backbone and the heart of the business and we have been blessed to work with some of the kindest and hardest working folks we could ask for over the years. Now we never said we knew what we were doing at the start of this journey but whatever we are doing seems to be getting it done. Onwards and upwards here on the Edge of the Avalon.

Thanks for all your support,

The Devereaux clan

Edge of the Avalon Inn

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.
