Property description

Spruce Grove Beach House is a large two bedroom winterized cottage with hardwood floors, vaulted pine ceiling and warm, comfortable furnishings. It has a 3.5 Stars Canada Select rating. The open concept, fully equipped kitchen with custom cabinets, overlooks the living and dining areas and commands an outstanding, unobstructed view of the ocean beyond.

Situated on a spacious double lot, the Northumberland Strait coastline is less than 100 meters directly in front, and beach access is a short 2 minute walk.

Enjoy inspiring sunrises and sunsets from the large, wraparound deck and breathe the fresh sea air as you watch the tides ebb and flow.

The calm, warm salt waters of the Strait reach temperatures of 72- 74 degrees Fahrenheit in July and August making it a recreational paradise for young and old alike. Low tide exposes miles of red sand tidal flats and reveals an abundance of marine life waiting to be discovered and explored. Dozens of species of sea birds, including Osprey, Great Blue Heron, Cormorants and Gulls forage along the edge of the retreating sea.

This part of the Island features rugged sandstone cliffs at the waters edge and you can access the beach via a footpath which winds its way down among the rocks. Beach shoes or other non-slip footwear is recommended. At high tide, our family likes to set up beach chairs, air mattresses, and towels right on the rocks and use them as platforms for swimming. If you are travelling with young children, you may prefer easier access and a more sandy beach. Both of these conditions can be found within a 5 minute drive along the coast at Hennebery Lane Beach, Canoe Cove, and the old Rice Pt. Wharf area. You'll find directions to these beaches in the cottage.

Spruce Grove Beach House is located on the South shore of Prince Edward Island, 25 minutes East of the Confederation Bridge and 20 minutes West of Charlottetown, the provincial capital. The town of Cornwall is less than a 15 minute drive and has all the amenities vacationers require. Prince Edward Island boasts some of the finest, most challenging golf courses in Canada. All are within a one hour drive and most are within 30 minutes.

Spruce Grove Beach House is a special place offering complete peace and tranquility perfect for families and even better for couples seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am a retired educator, my wife works for a legal firm in Charlottetown, and our daughter will be starting grade 7 in September, 2015.

Why the Owner Chose Rice Point:
We have been going to the South Shore of PEI every summer for the past 25 years. Most of the time was spent at Argyle Shoe which is a little further west along the coast. My sister and her family rented a small cottage there every year. About 12 years ago they bought land and built their own summer place at Rice Pt. and when this property became available only a Km up the road, we decided to take a look. We were totally amazed at the view from the cottage and the fact that there are no other cottages on either side or in front of us. It was a rare find so close to the city and we decided to make an offer that was eventually accepted.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is centrally located and is perfect as a base for exploring all parts of the Island. But if you choose to just sit back and relax, you won't find a better place to enjoy privacy and tranquility.
