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. Lots of room for family activities inside and out with two living rooms, a dining room and eat-in kitchen. With a full acre of lawns there is lots of room to make yourself at home.

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 stroll over to Village Pottery 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 at Annie’s Table - Culinary Studio. If learning a new craft is an interest next to Annie is New London Joy where Roseann operates an antique and craft 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 Sou'West Bar & Grill is an excellent seafood restaurant located on the New London harbour wharf. Located at the point the South West River meets New London Bay their name is a play on the location name, as well as a tip of the hat to their wide ranging culinary style. Their deck on the edge of the bay is a favourite destination.

Potter's House is fully licensed and inspected by the provincial government as a vacation rental property.

Minutes from public beaches and the PEI National Park at Cavendish provides a great base for activities in the whole coastal area, yet removed from the commercial district at the edge of the park....moreless

                  Owner info

                  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 of PEI is for families to enjoy a vacation. Exploring the area with our three children and now our grandchildren showed us there is no end to the great places to discover nearby. Having the chance to purchase Potter's House in the 1990's from an older couple who were innkeepers we jumped at the chance to carry on their tradition of hospitality - knowing that what had operated as a small inn would make the perfect summerhouse for visitors looking for a location to relax and enjoy. While they provided three cooked meals a day to their guests we chose to renovate both the house and the approach going with the popular self-catering style. 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 for a hike, or just to relax. 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. If you enjoy independent travel and exploring new areas then this would be a good spot to consider for exploring Prince Edward Island. In the heart of the north shore just minutes from the national park at Cavendish and easy access to the Confederation Trail (hiking & cycling Island wide) with musical events like the Indian River Festival providing lots of cultural opportunities in the area. An area rich with the best of what PEI has to offer.

                  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 soar 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 of the nearby 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 tonight' resounds and the family gathers at the fire pit to watch the flames grow 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 Prince Edward Island National Park just minutes away 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.
