Amazing PEI Family Retreat
Nicole and Steve have created a unique experience for foodies and just great getaway retreat where you can spoil yourself with the latest in asado, stone oven and smokers in your cookhouse only yards from the sea. In addition the main dwelling features a fully equipped kitchen which could easily seat guests of ten and accommodate their culinerary needs.
We thoroughly enjoyed the ambience by the sea as well as participated in cooking some heroic meals ....a truly wonderful place as well as a great location for secluded beach walks as well as access to this beautiful part of PEI. We will return to enrich our bellies once again! Thank you Nicole.
There was nothing that we didn't have. There was nothing missed; attention to every little detail. Accommodations were exceptional. I've got an extremely picky family, they were all in Aww. Large family from seniors to little ones; all completely satisfied. Cookhouse was awesome and a big crowd pleaser, aside from the beautiful house itself. Took advantage of the wood burning pizza oven, Argentinian BBQ, smoker, and wood burning fireplace. We dined out there as much a swe could. Don't forget all the tools, manuals and details that came along with everything; CRAZY!!
Well done Nicole & Steve
All the best, The Gelmo Family
Great place to relax and cook!
Beautiful home in a beautiful location. Awesome indoor and outdoor cooking facilities if you love to cook. Great beach access, comfortable rooms, everything well appointed. The hosts are fantastic and were immediately available for questions. Our family really enjoyed our stay.
Suberb property and experience
Our large group of 3 families chose this cottage based on the photos and location near Souris. We are so happy we did! We were told by friends that the eastern Prince Edward Island beaches are beautiful and they were even more beautiful than we expected! Walking distance to the beach made this cottage perfect for our small children. Nicole and Steve provided soooo much: beach chairs, coolers, beach toys for the kids and even a utility wagon to carry all of our stuff down!
The cottage is more beautiful than the pictures represent and property is simply gorgeous. Impeccably clean and fully equipped! It's so peaceful and relaxing while you gaze out over the ocean and beaches and listen to the wind in the trees and the variety of birds singing all day. We relaxed on the enormous deck while the kids played in the large grass field. Of course we tried the cookhouse several times - it was beyond amazing! Along with cooking our food and enjoying outside, we also enjoyed the ambiance of the fireplace outside next to us.
The beds were extremely comfortable with plush pillow top mattresses, plenty of pillows, beautiful linens and quilts. The bunkhouse was a treat for the kids. There was plenty of space for 11 of us and it was such a pleasure to be able to stay together in a single cottage.
Souris is a five minute drive and has everything we needed and we spent a day at the Souris Beach Park where we rented paddleboards, enjoyed delicious lobster sandwiches and oysters and searched for seaglass.
Overall this was an incredible vacation that we enjoyed at this very special cottage. Thanks so much to Nicole for the gift basket - such a treat! We can't wait to come back!
A wonderful property for our vacation
This is our second opportunity to have stayed at this amazing property. This year we were a group of 3 families, 11 people in total. We had ample space both indoors and outdoors, enjoyed beautiful weather at the white sandy beaches that are walking distance from the cottage. Our kids played in the large fields and we enjoyed the ocean views to the east through the park-like forested front yard and the endless golden wheat fields in the back.
Everything in the photos is accurate and Nicole and Steve provided everything we could need... high end appliances, mattresses, linens even a wide selection of coffee - Nespresso, Keurig, and fresh ground drip - whatever suits your fancy! The furniture is wonderful and all 11 of us ate at the same table overnight we ate in the cottage. (PS... This is hardly a cottage... it's a stunning summer home!)
We ate at Chef Michael Smith's Fireworks at Inn at Bay Fortune - just a 15 minute drive - OUTSTANDING! We also ate a 21 Breakwater, one of the local restaurants 5 minutes away and enjoyed the improvements at Souris beach where we rented paddle boards for the day and enjoyed the best lobster rolls around at the Lobster Shack. Most evenings were spent in the cookhouse by the fire or making some apples in the pizza oven. We even tried our hand at the authentic Italian pizza - Nicole provided a basket of all the required ingredients and instructions!
Thank you very much Nicole and Steve for the great gift basket and your wonderful hospitality again this year... we will definitely return next year. Our family couldn't think of staying anywhere else! This property is truly a gem.
Charlotte, Joseph and Family
We had the most amazing vacation here! The cottage and the beach were beautiful, beyond our expectations, and Nicole thought of every little detail to make our stay comfortable. We were traveling with our extended family which included four young children and the cottage was perfect for them - lots of outdoor space to run around and a very child-friendly beach where they were happy to spend most of their day. I really can't recommend this place enough.
This location ensures you are well poised for a wide range of classic Prince Edward Island activities including world renowned Bluefin Tuna fishing, the ultimate game fishing experience! Prefer something a little calmer? Try a clamming or whale watching adventure with a local charter. Or maybe you are catching the ferry to Les Îles de la Madeleine? Souris Harbour is a quick 7 minute drive and you will be on your way in no time. Visit the Elmira Railroad Museum and take the family on a beautiful miniature railway ride through the trees and hills of this beautiful property. Also stop by the historic East Point Lighthouse for a tour of a classic lighthouse and learn the history of these amazing structures and the important roles they played. See the famous confluence of three tides at the island's most easterly point, as the Atlantic Ocean, the Northumberland Strait, and the Gulf of St. Lawrence come together in this unique location.
Plan to enjoy PEI's outstanding golf courses and choose from world class Brudenell & Dundarave, Links at Crowbush or Avondale Golf Course, each just 45 minutes away. Fox Meadow, Belvedere and Stanhope, while a little further at about 60 minutes, are well worth the drive.
Anne of Green Gables
