New London house description
A millions shades of green is the colour of New London as your eyes follow the gentle rise of the rolling fields, forest and streams from the generous lawns that surround Potter's House.
The three bedroom summerhouse is a great spot for a family gathering with the whole house to yourselves. Located with large grounds - there is lots of room for family activities outside as well as two living rooms - a dining room and eat-in kitchen.
Once operated as a country inn/ tourist home, it is now available for rental by the week during the summer. Also for shorter periods in the early and later season.
Located in a creative village - you can take a stroll to visit the potters at work next door (mother and daughter - Daphne & Suzanne) after whom the house was named. As well you can partake in culinary adventures within the village as well at the Annie’s Table - Culinary Studio. If learning a new craft is an interest next door is New London Joy where Roseann operates a shop and conducts mosaic workshops.
And if you haven't worked up an appetite yet within the village there is the historic Birthplace of L.M. Montgomery, the esteemed author of the Anne of Green Gables series, which is open daily as well as Gallery 18 that offers a full line of art, antique prints and collectible books.
Did someone mention food ? You might consider slipping into the Bluewinds Tea Room for a refreshing break or a full meal. As well the New London Seafood Restaurant located on the harbour wharf.

- Designed for groups or families who enjoy the self-catering approach to travel, it is equipped to handle meal preparation and lots of room to relax both inside and out. Once operated as a small country inn, it was renovated into a summerhouse with lots of room for family groups or couples looking for privacy, that is close to all the advantages of the resort communities nearby. Minutes from public beaches and the National Park at Cavendish provides a great base for activities in the whole coastal area, but is removed from the commercial district at the edge of the park....moreless

Old time comfort plus beauty
Old time comfort plus beauty
Relaxed and comfortable, we found Potter’s House to be a lovely, older home that is furnished and maintained in the style of an informal country place. It is full of low-key charm. Like taking a step back in time. The kitchen is bright, looking out onto never-ending greenery and is equipped with modern fridge, stove, coffee-maker, etc., plus everything needed for steaming up your own lobsters and mussels. The two downstairs living rooms are great. Especially for larger family groups which can easily split into reading or chatting in one area with the other turned over to movies/tv. We also found the “parlour” to be helpful during an especially large family dinner gathering when the younger set gathered around the coffee table while the older set sat around the nearby dining table. Comfortable, clean beds upstairs. Great laundry facilities. Best of all, we loved the large area of lawn and trees that surround the place. Really nice for sitting out, enjoying the view, reading, picnics, whatever. The country-side is flat out gorgeous. Cavendish is not far away. Our son-in-law enjoyed the nearby golf course. Overall, for us, a great place to unwind!

Owner response: Glad to know your group enjoyed their stay at Potter's House.
This is an older property and thus has old infrasturture ie. plumbing, electrical, etc. We used it as a family gathering spot and it sherved that purpose well being close to amenities in Cavendish. The owners were nice and helpful when called upon. Overall a clean and commfortable place to stay.

Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: As artisans we fell in love with the area in the 1970's and have operated our pottery business in the village since then - it now includes our daughter Suzanne who is also a potter.
Why the Owner Chose New London:
Having a family summerhouse in the area, we knew what a great location the North Shore is for families to enjoy a vacation. Exploring the area with our three children and our first grandchild showed us there is no end to the great places to discover nearby. Having the chance to purchase Potter's House from an older couple who were pioneers in the tourism field we jumped at the chance - knowing that what had operated as a small inn would make the perfect summerhouse for visitors looking for a location to relax and enjoy. When there is time to slip away from pottery making, or at the end of the day - the beach is where we tend to head. Watching the sunset over the water is always a special treat. With beaches in all directions, New London is a perfect base to explore the best of what Prince Edward Island has to offer in any direction.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
With a fresh coffee in hand - heading to the big lawn chairs the eye rises to see a hawk soars over the meadow. Whether it is the Northern Harrier in the meadow or an Ospey family nesting near the harbour or the Bald Eagles over the bay this area is rich with nature and the refreshment that comes from being close to a seaside environment. As the late afternoon arrives and the whiff of the BBQ awakens your senses to an awaited meal - tonight it is surf and turf - with the freshest lobster in the world straight from the wharf along with mussels. Last night it was salmon from the same market. As the night falls and the kids tire from playing soccer and frisbee on the big lawn at the back, the shout of 'campfire' resounds and the family gathers at the fire pit to light a campfire and enjoy time together around the flickering light of the warming blaze, while the distant glow of the sun sets beyond the horizon. Exploring the area is always a joy - the fishing villages and beaches - the cycling and hiking trails - the golf courses and National Park make this area a popular location. Potter's House is a restful summerhouse in the middle of one of the top vacation areas on Canada's east coast. Beautiful beaches are just minutes away by car.
