Discover what awaits you at Grates Cove Studios.

About our little Studio on the Edge of the World

Grates Cove Studios is a place where you can eat, explore and create in the beautiful, rugged coastal landscapes of Newfoundland’s historic Grates Cove and the scenic Baccalieu Trail. Stay overnight in one of the two three-bedroom vacation homes offering stunning views of icebergs, whales, and the Baccalieu Island Ecological Reserve.

Located on the Baccalieu Trail at the most northerly point of the Avalon Peninsula, the town of Grates Cove is a national historic site boasting hiking trails, dry stone rock walls and breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. Grates Cove Studios are a home away from home for artists, writers, and travelers alike. Just a scenic two-hour drive from the city of St. John’s, and open year round. Come and see what awaits you in Grates Cove!

Your Hosts Courtney and Terrence Howell

Courtney and Terrence on the Rocks.

Grates Cove Studios is owned and operated by Artist/Designer Terrence Howell and Courtney Howell, Newfoundland and South Louisiana natives, who met in, traveled around and ate their way through South Korea. In 2009, they pitched their family in the historic site of Grates Cove, the birthplace of Terrence's father, grandmother and many ancestors.

Soon after, they bought the old school house in Grates Cove and in 2011 started Grates Cove Studios.
