A millions shades of green fill your eyes as they follow the gentle rise of the rolling fields, forest and streams from the generous lawns that surround Potter's House in New London.
The three-bedroom summerhouse is a perfect spot for a family gathering with a renovated farm house to yourselves. Lots of room for family activities inside and out with two living rooms, a dining room and eat-in kitchen. An acre of lawn surrounding the house provides plenty of room to make yourself at home.
Once operated as a country inn/tourist home, the house it is now available for rental by the week during the summer as a self-catering operation. Saturday is our change-over day. We rent for shorter periods in May, June, September and October.
Located in a creative village, you can stroll over to Village Pottery our family shop to visit the potters at work next door; founded by Daphne in 1973, there are now four of us in the family making pottery. You guessed it - that is how Potter's House got its name. As well you can partake in culinary adventures within the village at The Table - Culinary Studio, and explore the craft work known as Roberta Originals at the shop called Summer House.
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.

- Designed for groups or families who enjoy the self-catering approach to travel, the house is equipped to handle meal preparation and has lots of room to relax both inside and out. Once operated as a small country inn, it was renovated into a summerhouse with lots of room for family groups or couples looking for privacy, but close to all the advantages of the resort communities nearby. 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

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 ever since. We are pleased to operate a family business which now includes two of our children as well.
Why the Owner Chose New London, PE, Canada:
Spenting our summers in the area for over 40 years we knew what a great location the area is for families to enjoy a vacation. Exploring the area with our three children and now our grandchildren continues to show us great places to discover nearby. When the chance to purchase Potter's House arose as neighbours retired as innkeepers we jumped at the chance to carry on their tradition of hospitality - hoping that what had operated as a small inn would make the perfect summerhouse for visitors looking for a location to relax and enjoy. While the prior owners 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 where people have the house to themselves to relax and enjoy. A Saturday-to-Saturday operation during July and August we also accept shorter bookings in the shoulder season. 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 enjoying a Prince Edward Island vacation. 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) there are many musical events like the Indian River Festival providing lots of cultural opportunities in the area. New London is a farming and fishing area rich with the best of what PEI has to offer in fresh food, scenery and a creative local community.
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 with a few oysters to start the meal. 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 fire, while the distant glow of the sun sets beyond the horizon. As the night draws to a close and family think about heading in, "I have never seen so many stars in all my life," is a common reaction. The wide night sky and a rising moon sets a lovely tone to the end of the day at Potter's House. Exploring the whole area is always refreshing, 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, as well as all the amenities a traveller might need are minutes away in nearby Cavendish. Kensington in the other direction provides even a fuller range of services.
