Peace at the end of the
road...nestled in the hills on a winding, quiet back lane, Fishers’ Loft,
a 4½ star
inn, overlooks the old fishing and boat-building harbour of Ship
Cove, where small fishing boats still come and go.
Fishers’ Loft is in Port
Rexton, one of 12 picturesque fishing outports dotted along the
rugged coastline between New Bonaventure and English Harbour on
Trinity Bay — the Trinity Bight. (See picture
An hour’s drive from Terra Nova National
Park and Golf Course, Bonavista and only minutes
from the bustle of historic Trinity, the famous Pageant and theatre
festival , restaurants, gift shops and boat tours.
Fishers' Loft Inn is on the internationally renowned Skerwink Trail, a 5.3 km coastal, woodland trail (named by Travel & Leisure Magazine among the top 10 hiking trails in Canada).
From the Loft, you look
across the vast and ever-changing reaches of Trinity Bay. Closer
to home and rising from the approaches to Ship Cove is Fox Island,
once a fortification. Icebergs and whales, eagles and osprey are often seen from our shores.
