"My family of 4 just returned from a week stay at this beautiful home. The listing description and photos were accurate, yet in person the home exceeded our expectations! Potato fields and water views from nearly every window. Such a peaceful, beautiful setting. Enjoyed morning walks, runs or bike rides on the neighboring streets. Great time canoeing the Grand River from the backyard! Very comfortable, IMMACULATE, fantastic 2 person tub, central A/C, laundry room and fully equipped kitchen made for such a perfect stay. Home included movies, books, games and puzzles to enjoy in the evenings after touring the island. Location was convenient allowing us to explore different areas of the island such as North Cape, Cape Egmont (loved the glass houses), Cavendish, Charlottetown for a musical, Lennox Island, Belmont Park and Summerside. We ran out of time to explore the eastern side. Close enough to the bridge to allow for a day in Nova Scotia. A car is definitely needed on this island. Much large than we expected. Coastal drives are a must and PEI National Park! Just bring some bug spray for the evenings if planning on sitting outdoors. Home is also very pet friendly with vast yard to explore. Found photo album detailing the home restoration project. The painstaking labor to restore all the woodwork created quite an exquisite outcome for guests to enjoy. Owner was very helpful in answering all our questions. Only confusing item was the trash recycling. We've recycled for years but yet didn't know trash could be divided into so many parts!. PEI is ahead of the game as far as sustainability goes with their recycling and numerous turbines lining the landscape. Gorgeous island and home ..... we highly recommend this home to families or those wanting a romantic or quiet escape!"
