A stone hearth in the living room adds comfort and warmth to the soothing beach décor with the modern convenience of instant propane heat.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Proprietors, Guy and Andrea McIntosh, are native to this area of Prince Edward Island and invite you to share in their dream of having a summer retreat on the North Shore. While staying at the Granary, Andrea’s greatest joy is to walk to the beach and pick berries after her daily bike ride. Following an afternoon on the beach, the two enjoy watching the sunset and listening to the ocean. This cottage and beach are so captivating, both of their two children chose to be married here.

                      Why the Owner Chose St. Margarets:
                      Owners Andrea and Guy McIntosh have been coming to St. Margarets beach since childhood. St Margarets has always had a unique ability to provide excitement and relaxation all in one place. This was the inspiration for The Granary at the Beach. The Granary is a place where time stops, …and freedom begins. When you arrive at the Granary, the first view of picturesque wind-lashed dunes and sea water steal your breath, awaken and energize. Then let the sheltered pond, with its gentle ripples and calm, slow moving wildlife, remind you to enjoy the timeless moments in nature and take a deep sweet breath…the freshest one you’ll recall in months. This is a place to disconnect and spread your arms out wide. Dance, sing, laugh, explore and shout with a tingle on every movement, stopping, reflecting, enjoying life. Nestled into the bank of a large pond, bordering on sand dunes and the ocean, The Granary offers a gentle solitude with the added benefit of fresh ocean breezes and the nearby crash of waves on the beautiful, white, sandy beach. The only cottage on 10 acres, it provides treed privacy yet is not secluded, with neighbouring summer homes on the opposite banks of the pond. When you decide to head to the shore, your own path to the beach will take you around the edge of the pond where you can enjoy diverse perspectives for viewing and listening to birds, beavers, frogs, and fish jumping.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The Granary was designed and built specifically to capture this breathtaking view of the North Shore dunes and waterways where the Bear River flows out to St. Margaret’s Beach. The result is captivating views from every window and an eye on nature from your cozy perch within it. While staying at The Granary you will enjoy its unique architecture using reclaimed wood as a basis for its big, solid and beautiful frame. It harkens back to a time when large, old barns stood proudly on new, island homesteads. With a blend of modern and old fashioned design, it is a solid, and warm structure with fresh open spaces. It is a place that will foster intimate and jovial gatherings whether your group is many or few. Enjoy the following nearby attractions while staying at The Granary Beach House: *Fishing in the pond or nearby streams (angling liscences available in nearby Town of Souris) *Deep Sea Fishing; Seal, Whale Watching Tours * Prince Edward Distillery * Naufrage Harbour * St. Margaret’s Church * St. Margaret’s Church Hall and Celidhs * New Harmony Scenic Heritage road * The Glen Scenic Heritage Road * Town of Souris * Colville Bay Oysters * North Lake Charters Tuna and Deep Sea Fishing * St. Margaret’s Pioneer Cemetary * Points East Coastal Drive * Basin Head Provincial Park *Confederation Biking Trail *Shipwreck Point Cafe * The Myriad View, Artisan Distillery ****See the link to our website for further links to the above attractions.
