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
These Newfoundland Vacation Homes feature all the comforts of home so welcome after a day spent exploring the Discovery Trail and the local attractions.
Both cottages are meticulously re-stored, fully-equipped and furnished, ready to become your home-away-from home. The Station House is a one-bedroom, along with a pull-out sofa, and can accommodate up to four people. The Trail House is a two queen bedroom home which can comfortably sleep four people.
