Property Description

Canada Select 4-star

You have never been so close to natural brilliance. The newest addition to Newfoundland Vacation Homes, Skerwink Station, is located at the entrance to the breathtaking Skerwink Trail and consists of two 4-star cottages. The Station House and The Trail House are in Trinity East, a quaint and beautiful outport of Newfoundland.

To the left of these newly restored cottages, commences the acclaimed Skerwink Trail, rated by Travel + Leisure 2003, as one of the top 35 hiking trails in North America and Europe. To the right, the level ocean-side former rail-bed winds through the outport, past active fishing wharfs and around the harbour.

One of the greatest things about many of the houses in this area has to be their location. Certainly this is true of The Station House and The Trail House. They are ideally situated at the very entrance to the world-class Skerwink hiking trail. And, as they say here, "A hike to Skerwink can change your life."

Skerwink Station is also just steps away from the wharfs, (which are the heart of the outport), an assortment of Bay Houses, the harbour, and the ocean beyond. It is a tranquil, restful spot, complete with the sound of the put-put of the single-stroke engine trap-skiff heading out the harbour; or the haunting sound of the lighthouse horn drifting on the soft night air.

The Skerwink Station houses provide the setting for the sights and sounds of the area to wash over you while you soak in the comforts and aesthetics of rural Newfoundland. You become one with your environment and content in the moment. This is where creativity begins.

These Newfoundland Vacation Homes feature all the comforts of home so welcome after a day spent exploring the Discovery Trail and the local attractions.

... offer a unique, authentic experience for travelers and vacationers. Each home allows guests to prepare their own meals, entertain guests or just enjoy the luxury of an entire house to themselves during their travels. These homes represent tremendous value for visitors since significant savings can be realized through the preparation of some meals and the relatively low per-person per-night costs. It truly provides a comfortable home-base from which to explore the area.

Additional Information

I hope you enjoy your stay at the Trail House. I don't like a lot of rules either, but here are some guidlines to make it pleasant for all. Absolutely no smoking inside or a $100 cleaning fee will be levied. For those who smoke outside please don't throw your butts on the ground. Leaving clean dishes is your responsibility...that's what dishwashers are for. Garbage goes into black bags and put in furthest round bin at end of driveway. Have a great holiday. Brenda
