About the Property

3 bedrooms, 1 bath/shower, near beach, sleeps 6,Long River PEI

RENTAL RATES QUOTED IN US DOLLARS
CHECK IN /check out IS ON SATURDAY

This lovely cottage is in the Anne of Green Gables region of Prince Edward Island (PEI). It is ideal for a family of up to six. If you have a larger party, consider renting both the cottage and the farmhouse, which may be seen at HomeAway 200196 . The large tree shaded yard makes a wonderful playground. Peace, privacy and safety are abundant. Set back in a woods 1/3 mile from the farm road, there is no road noise or automobile hazard for children. The bathroom has been renovated, with new fixtures, since 2014. A beautiful secluded beach is just five minutes away. Excellent restaurants are a short drive away. And New London Bay with its fishing and lobster fleet is ten minutes away.

To see exact location enter 'Chrissydale Cottage' on Google Earth.

Many diverse family entertainment attractions, excellent golfing, and tennis courts are nearby. For a peaceful, relaxed visit to one of the world's most beautiful islands, this is the perfect spot.



Convenient Location: Chrissydale Cottage is located in the heart of the island, convenient to the most desirable north shore beaches, to the Anne of Green Gables historical sites, to shopping, golf, fishing and family entertainment. Set back a third of a mile from the road in a wooded site, it is also free from road noise and the risk of a child running into traffic. There is considerable peace and privacy.

Seclusion, peace and privacy: Only Chrissydale Cottage and a Victorian farm house are one this site, unlike the cluster cottages found in many places on the island. The caretaker of the cottage, Donald Johnstone, lives in the farm house at the end of our driveway across the way, so he is available for any needs, but is unobtrusive.

Clean and Comfortable: Chrissydale is furnished comfortably and is maintained for cleanliness and maximum livability. The spacious rear deck is also well furnished for relaxed living. The bathroom has been renovated, with new fixtures, since 2014.
This is a rural farmhouse and on occasion there has been a mouse spotted even though we have the house treated prior to visitors. In 2016 one of our guests experienced an invasion of beetle bugs. Our housekeeper and maintenance man were summoned and came right away to help with this problem. We can not guarantee the weather or the acts of mother nature but we do our best to make our guests comfortable and to feel accommodated for any problems. We have been renting this cottage for 20 years and have a very high rate of positive reviews from most of our guests. We get repeat guests each year and are always filled up by May of each year with reservations.

Car: Recommended

Chrissydale Cottage is near a beautiful secluded beach at Cousin's Shore (a five minute drive) . Also, the beach is free, whereas the National Park beach at Cavendish costs $17 a day. Excellent restaurants are a short drive away. And New London Bay with its fishing and lobster fleet is ten minutes away. Privacy, peacefulness, and pastoral beauty are important features of the Chrissydale site. A spacious, tree shaded yard is great for family play. The large deck, with a 'million dollar view' into the community of Long River, is ideal for lounging with your morning coffee and for barbeques (propane grill provided). . For a peaceful, relaxed visit to one of the world's most beautiful islands, this is the perfect spot. Nestled in a valley surrounded by pastures with cows, trees full of singing birds,and freshly plowed fields of grain,wheat or potatoes. This windswept island holds magic in its land. There are many activities for the entire family to enjoy including world class golf courses, excellent dining,theatre,harness racing, casino,and best of all quiet serenity in a private location.

This is a rural farmhouse and has occasionally experienced a mouse, and in 2016 a beetle invasion which lasted about a week. (The entire island had this problem.) We have an excellent cleaning service and our maintenance person lives right at the end of the road to take care of any special circumstances which may arise due to the nature of being a farmhouse.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1991

About: I live in Florida and have been spending 2 weeks out of each summer in Prince Edward Island since 1990. I have 4 children who have all been here to visit with me. My youngest child, Alexa, has fallen in love with the home and the island as I have. She has been coming with me every year since she was 3 years old. I am an artist and find great inspiration from the beauty which surrounds my home in Long River. It is my retreat back into a simpler time where things all make sense to me. My heart resides in PEI all year round.

Why Kensington, PE, Canada:
My Mom and Dad found this property and purchased the 180 year old Victorian Farm House in 1990. My Mom called to let me know about this 'cute little farm house' located on the same property which was also for sale. I came up and immediately fell in love with their place as well as mine. My Mom and Dad spent many precious summers here. My Mom's last visit was in June of 2009. Although she was weak and frail she gathered up her strength for one last time to go to the place she loved the most. She died the following November. We released her ashes at Cape Tryon which was a place she loved to go to at sunset.I treasure our family memories of this beautiful magical island and feel such gratitude to my parents for finding it. We have friends now that we have become very close to in PEI and have watched their families grow along with ours.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
For large families a unique benefit is to be able to rent both places out and be right next to each other. The privacy of our homes is very special. We are located inthe middle of cow pastures and potatoe farms. We wake up to birds singing and cows mooing every day.We are in the middle of the Island which makes it easy to get to all places you want to go. Our beach at cousin's shore is unique in the fact it has a freshwater stream which meanders from a lake and flows into the ocean, this stream is very warm in the summer and being shallow it is a great place for children to frolic. It is common to have bonfires at night on the beach.There are wonderful restaurants close by and last year (2013) Sting had a tour stop/performance in Summerside ,which is 15 minutes from our house. He was amazing. WE love going into Charlottetown for shopping,festivals,theatre, casino,and fine dining. It is a beautiful and pleasant drive 45 minutes from our house.
