“Fabulous this (Amber Re)treat!”
Nov 19, 2009: Jo Johnson, London, England

Oh wow, what a gorgeous place..
Visited Amber Retreat with a friend in October and was blown away by this beautiful cottage. Tasteful decor greets you as you step inside and walk through the stylish kitchen which contains all the luxuries one would need on a weekend’s escape. The bedrooms are welcoming and trying both the double bath and double shower in the respective en suites was sublime!

Stocking up on food and beverage supplies was easy (the grocery store/s are well-stocked and easy to get to from the cottage) and although the weather was crisp, it was great exploring the numerous hiking trails. Though late-October, we saw a good number of bushes still carrying berries (apparently aplenty when really in season). And the scenery from the hills was amazing. Make sure to take a hike to Spiller’s Cove which will totally take your breath away!

“What a treat! – absolutely thumbs up”

The house was perfectly outfitted with many thoughtful amenities, and made our trip so relaxing. The town of Twillingate is fantastic and all the residents friendly. We of course talked to Mr. Melvin and visited the local fish markets for the makings of many delicious meals.
“A perfect choice”
Nov 19, 2009 Ross Rogers, Montreal, Quebec
When we walked into the house we were very impressed by the tasteful décor and authenticity. The rooms are full of natural light and the owner has paid meticulous attention to all of the details – from window dressings to the hardwood floor. The weather was cool but we simply didn’t care at the end of the day. We happened to be there when dozens of icebergs had floated into a nearby cove. It was enough to take your breath away. Twillingate is a magical island and the Amber Retreat was a perfect place to hang up our hats.

Thanks so much for everything.  Your retreat was fabulous.  I could easily live full time in a home like this.  It was a wonderful stay.

I wanted to thank you again for a lovely time in your house. The extra touches like chocolates and wine were lovely. We felt very comfortable there. Rob loved being so close to lots of different views for early morning and evening pictures.
