Property description

This secluded 11.5 acre family estate is the perfect vacation spot for a family reunion, group of friends, corporate retreat or a wedding. With an abundance of charm, character, and treasures, this piece of Prince Edward Island history will leave guests with many cherished memories. The sandy beach at the end of the lane offers great swimming at high tide and clam digging and beachcombing at lower tides. The Confederation Trail for walking and biking runs along the old rail line that used to bring guests to The Highlands when it was a hotel (1930-1940).

There is fabulous golfing within a five-minute drive. Brudenell Resort includes Brudenell and Dundarave (two 18-hole championship golf courses), as well as horseback riding, kayaking, tennis, lawn bowling, dining facilities, and a spa.

The century home contains nine bedrooms (eight with their own sink) on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The first floor has a formal living and dining room, breakfast room, den, kitchen, pantry, and laundry/power room. There is plenty of everything needed for entertaining our guests.

The 1930's dance pavilion is adjacent to the house, and was built when the property became a hotel. Guests would travel by train, car, and horse to The Highlands -- to the dances that were held there. Two room-length balconies are perched over the plank dance floor; and a ping-pong table and basketball net are available for recreation in the Pavilion. The Pavilion also has a powder room, kitchen with sink, propane stove, fridge, and a barbecue. It is a wonderful place to eat or relax in the many comfortable chairs and couches -- enjoying the beautiful weather from the veranda or a warming fire inside.

Weddings: The property is a tried and true amazing location for a wedding! We will be happy to discuss this with you.
