We Have Everything Covered
We’re open year-round and every season offers fresh air and wide-open spaces for you to relax in and explore.
The season of renewed energy and a great time to take in one of our private or group mind body and soul retreats. We also offer gardening classes for the hobby farmer or little green thumbs in partnership with Robbins Family Farm.

Lay down your bag and breathe deeply. There are endless day trips on your doorstep and long summer nights to relax into.
Visit Gros Morne National Park, explore the farms of Cormack, or unwind by Rocky Brook.
Autumn brings farmers markets, fresh produce, and is one of the best times of the year to take a hike in Gros Morne National Park or the Bay of the Islands. All against a backdrop of spectacular fall colours.
The snowy season might just be our favourite! Rocky Brook Acres is located minutes from Western Newfoundland’s vast network of groomed snowmobile trails. If a quiet, self-propelled day is more your speed, spend the day on our farm sliding, ice-skating, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Either way, it’s always fun to end the day with a shed party.
