Daisy's place is located in the quiet fishing harbour village of Merritt’s Harbour. Nestled in a cove surrounded by ocean and cliffs. Watch the bald eagles take flight that nest nearby from our signature picture window wall. 8 minutes to downtown Twillingate. Iceberg and whale watching. Perfect quiet location for 2-4 people.

The end of road location in a picturebook outport harbour is just the starting point. The house itself has been renovated with an integrity to the saltbox tradition and an imaginative contemporary eye for space and light. Surrounding the house are stunning cliffs, rich berry bogs (never seen so many partridgeberries in one place before!) and stunning vistas out to the island-dotted North Atlantic. First class amenities throughout the house and all the comforts of a top class hotel, but with an individual charm hard to find anywhere else. Lots of meandering roads to travel with more picturesque fishing villages at every turn. Excellent, well maintained hiking trails all around Twillingate Islands and New World Islands. Surprisingly good restaurants and a first rate brew-pub.

We had a lovely stay at Daisy's Place in mid-July. It was a warm summer's day and we loved propping the windows open to let the fresh breeze blow through the house. Although the house is not situated directly on the water,a short 30 second stroll down the hill brings you directly to the water's edge. And the view from the huge picture window is much more captivating, in our opinion, with the tall grass field, craggy rock cliffs and neighbouring saltbox home viewed through it's frame. This truly is a magical little place tucked away in a hidden cove and is best enjoyed by getting outside and exploring its beautiful surroundings. We will definitely be back.

Thank you so much for choosing to stay at Daisy's Place in the Twillingate Area. We love this location for all of the reasons you described- the nearby ocean combined with the cliffs and wide grassy fields make a captivating view. We look forward to your return!

I am a little perplexed with everyone commenting on the great view. I have attached a pic of the view - completely blocked by the house in front of us! This is NOT depicted on the website. The photo you see on the website is actually behind this house. Although the house is quaint and lovely, the view is what we came for. It's always about the view. So, in that sense we would not stay here again, nor would we recommend it.

Thank you for leaving your review on our Daisy's Place. Our web site does show inside pictures of the views out our signature picture window of the harbour and surrounding cliffs. As with most Old Homes in Newfoundland, the home was situated to avoid the harsh winds and weather while still allowing one window to watch the ocean and the returning fisherman. In each of our homes, our picture windows were placed in the wall with the most spectacular window. We apologize if you misunderstood the actual location of the home and strive to offer multiple photos to show our beautiful homes and their locations. We are happy that you enjoyed the house itself and hope you enjoyed your visit to the Twillingate area.

We spent 2 nights at Daisy's house- we were wowed by the picturesque the location and house and how charmingly decorated it was. A lovely spot to spend a couple of nights- or longer. We used this as a base to explore Twillingate-where we saw whales from the lighthouse as well as on our hike. Its not a long drive to the town, although I would recommend driving in daylight the first time you arrive in the cottage, once you know where it is, its easy to get there. Very clean, well equipped.

We are completely delighted that you enjoyed your time in Merritt's Harbour at Daisy's Place! Every time I visit, I also find it hard to leave. What luck with the whales, and I'm happy you had great weather. Until next time, Amanda

We stayed in Daisy's Place in the fall and found it charming. The houses are fully equipped, we've stayed in Musgrave Harbour and Greenspond before and visite friends in the Fogo Island homes. We could see the ocean from the couch and huge waves in the fall sea. There were a million stars at night and the hills and natural landscape around the house makes it extra special. Great for a couple or small family as there is a fold out couch in the living room. there are so many beautiful tiny communities to see in the Twillingate area. this was a great way to discover one.

My family had the pleasure of staying in Daisy's Place. The big picture windows were perfect to indulge in the picturesque views of the meadows and not to mention the spectacular sunset! This home costs about the same as a B&B and offered so much more value. A full kitchen, living, dining area, comfy bed and lots of space to enjoy the homey space. We hope to be back someday and staying in another Old Salt Box vacation home!

We had stayed in a Salt Box cottage on Fogo Island a few years ago so it was a no-brainer to choose Daisy's Place when we were in Twillingate. Daisy's is actually in Merritt's Harbour but it's not a long drive right into Twillingate. Everything you need is right in the cottage. The kitchen is fully stocked so all you have to bring is your own food. The interior is a lovely shade of yellow and the view out the huge picture windows is stunning. We could even see a few icebergs! After a long day of exploring Twillingate, it was so good to come back to Daisy's, have a lovely shower and a relaxing evening. Salt Box cottages are the BEST!
