About Skandia House & Region

Erickson was originally established as a Canadian National Railway Station in 1905. When a post office was opened in 1908 it was known as Avesta. It was named after a town in south-central Sweden. Shortly after, the post office was moved near the railway station site which was named Erickson Station. The station had been named after the Postmaster, E. Albert Erickson.

These hardworking Scandinavians soon welcomed others from far parts of the world like The Ukraine. They worked the land together in farming, forestry, hunting, trapping and fishing. It is not hard to see why the area was so attractive and such a good place to raise a family and work with friends.

The Skandia House is styled with the minimal Scandinavian designs - clean lines, bright light colour and accents of wood. Relax - Get Away - Enjoy  indoors or outdoors.



What a gem! The house is decorated so well - simple, clean and refreshing. We loved the upper loft area, cozy and restful. Spa tub, quiet house. Who could ask for more?! We will be back.
