Gertie's Place is located right in the historic town of Twillingate.

What a beautiful location - the beach front is nice to walk on and the house is very comfortable. Efficient check-in and we loved the town of Twillingate. Went to the TWI Theatre and had a great meal and enjoyed the entertainment

Sitting on this lovely cove makes for a vacation stay that felt like we were always "doing something," simply for sitting and staring at the amazing picture window view. Delightfully decorated with easy check in and out thanks to the key code door. Bathroom tub is to die for, location is perfect for being nice and quiet, and you can tell the place has been lovingly restored. Lots of great amenities and the beds are mega comfy.

Kelly, I'm so pleased you enjoyed the view from Gertie's. You're right- that home has been lovingly restored and lovingly visited, and we're happy you loved it as well. Many people use vacation homes as landing pads for the night, but we truly believe Gertie's IS the vacation- congratulate yourself on taking the time there to enjoy life's simple pleasures. We look forward to your next visit! -Amanda

Everything about the booking was easy and went very smooth. The location is great with an ignoramus view. The building has been carefully restored to take advantage of it. It is equipped with everything you need and offers very comfortable beds.It's relaxing and comfortable. My only problem was that there is very little water pressure in the shower. THIS IS A GREAT SPOT TO SPEND A COUPLE OF DAYS.

Thank you very much for your kind words about our home in Twillingate. Our apologies about the water pressure. As with a lot of Rural Newfoundland properties, our only option for water supply at Gertie's is via a drilled well. We are glad you enjoyed your stay regardless and hope you can return some day.

Wow. We were so stunned when we drove around the bend and what to our surprise A HUGE ICEBERG right in front of our vacay home. The Old Saltbox cottage was so perfect. A very quaint seaside cottage with the BEST BIG picture window ever seen. Quiet. Comfy beds. Everything you need in a kitchen. Perfect perfect perfect.

Thank you so much for your beautiful words. I can't take any praise for the spectacular iceberg but so glad you enjoyed the home to watch it from. I hope you get back again another time to explore more of Newfoundland and Labrador...and The Old Salt Box Co.

Location and View are wonderful. Quiet neighborhood. But the view is absolutely spell binding!!! Very comfortable beds. Well equipped kitchen. After five nights, we were ready to move in for good! Janet was great to work with and everything was seamless. Cannot recommend this highly enough.
