House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps
A sister house to the Station House,(also listed with Vacation
Rentals), the Trail House was completed July of 2007 and
features two queen bedrooms and all the ammenities of home. The
Trail House is located in Trinity East, a quaint and
beautiful out-port of Newfoundland. To the left of this newly
restored cottage 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 rail-bed
winds through the outport, past active fishing wharfs and around the
One of the greatest things about many of the houses in this area has
to be their location. Certainly this is true of the Trail House.
It is 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."
The Trail House 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
of the trap-skiff heading out the harbour; or the haunting sound of
the lighthouse horn drifting on the soft night air.
The Trail House provides 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
The Trail House is meticulously re-stored, fully-equipped and
furnished, ready to become your home-away-from home. It accommodates
up to 4 people.
A Newfoundland Vacation Home,the Trail House offers a
unique, authentic experience for travelers and vacationers. It
allows guests to prepare their own meals, entertain guests or just
enjoy the luxury of an entire house to themselves during their
travels. This home represents 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.
About the Owner
5 based on 6 traveler reviews
This little cottage has it all. Perfect location, scenery, access, and charm. So cozy and well appointed. At the foot of the Skerwink Trail, with easy access to all the history and sights of the Trinity area. We highly recommend it!
Cottage is very comfortable, beautifully furnished, with all amenities, kitchen is not only very well equipped in terms of appliances, dishes, pots and pans, even spices, but all of that in the very good quality.
I also loved the location-quiet, surrounded by nature and at the foot of one of the best coastal trails in North America, yet close to grocery store and restaurant, short drive to other local attractions.
perfect in every way
We stayed in the Trail House for 2 nights. The location of this property is fantastic. The first thing we did when we arrived was to hike the Skerwink Trail and it was well worth the effort...amazing. The house was perfect. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen fully equipped. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this property.
Trail House Accomodation
Our stay at Trail House was exceptional. The cottage had everything we needed and more. The only thing missing was a cheese grater. The owner didn't skimp on anything. The beds and pillows were so comfortable. Linda the housekeeper did a great job. The location was great,there is so much to see and do. We were able to do many day trips from there. The Trinity and Bonavista areas are so beautiful and the Skerwink Trail is a must. The owner sat with us and suggested things and places to see. A couple of places she suggested were Tickle Cove and Keels. An amazing, breathtaking experience. What scenery. We will definetly go back there and strongly recommend it to anyone.
It was great! Perfect location to hike Skerwink Trail. Clean, quiet, bright, new!!
Would definitely recommend it!
