DSC_0408(1)Tucked away on a quiet back lane, Fishers’ Loft is a 4.5 star inn overlooking the harbour of Ship Cove. The Inn is a collection of structures which reflect the traditional architecture of Trinity Bay between 1850 and 1900. The buildings have been designed to ensure the visitor’s comfort.

Fishers’ Loft is located in Port Rexton, one of 12 picturesque outports dotted along the rugged coastline between New Bonaventure and English Harbour on Trinity Bay — the Trinity Bight. In addition to the Skerwink Trail, there are six other breathtaking trails to explore, read more at Hike Discovery.10387530_857439451001966_8559997584971041265_n

The internationally renowned Skerwink Trail is on the Inn’s doorstep. A 5.3 km coastal, woodland trail, it has been named by Travel & Leisure Magazine among the top 10 hiking trails in Canada.

In the neighbourhood of Fishers’ Loft are golf courses, historic sites, professional theatre, whale and iceberg watching (in season), a boat trip to abandoned communities, puffin colonies, scenic drives, craft shops and studios, and movie sets.
