About the Property

7 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms with Covehead Bay/Atlantic Ocean Views

House Highlights:

My summer home has had a significant refresh over the winter of 2016-2017. The house was completely repainted inside and substantially refurnished...very much a Coastal Living feel. Pictures have been updated as of May 21, 2017.

The parting comments of friends and guests that have stayed here are universally ones of happiness and sadness. Happy in remembering all the wonderful times shared sitting on the deck sharing a refreshment, playing catch on the lawn, long walks on the the empty beaches along the ocean, glorious days on the golf courses, BBQing steaks on the deck while watching the sunset, sharing delicious meals of local seafoods and produce on the breezeway, staring at the untold number of stars on a cloudless night and sleeping on a perfect summer night cooled by the ocean breezes...sad to pack up and leave this magical place behind.

If you are looking for an amazing house, in a perfect PEI bay-side setting with ocean views, 5 mins from the beach and excellent restaurants, 15 minutes from the airport and all that Charlottetown has to offer, and 30 minutes to 6 amazing golf courses, great restaurants, local galleries, tourist destination, etc. then please book now!

Note: This magnificent location is found in an exclusive setting and is governed by a Home Owners Association and a Covenant which preserves this pristine area. Due to the private nature of the neighbourhood and surrounding properties and to respect the peacefulness of 'Macmillan Point' we limit our stays to 6 adults per family group and 8 adults for an adults only vacation (e.g. golf trip or book club getaway).

Car: Necessary

Local Things to do:

Walks

A walk around MacMillan Point…just go down the stairs on the bayside deck and turn left…the hardier souls will go all the way around!! 30 minute walk.

A walk on Brackley Beach. Enter park on the Dunes Gallery side and pass the Brackley Beach Parking lot (for tourists!!!) and go about ½ mile until you see stairs over the sand dunes. Park here. Go over the stairs and turn right. Its 3 miles round trip to walk to the bridge which you see from the deck of the summerhouse. Normally you encounter 3-4 people on the walk. Solitude!!!

The Trail at Greenwich Dunes near St. Peters Bay (about 30 minutes). A great trail that takes about 45 minutes out to a beautiful beach on the ocean. A great place to pack a lunch and spend the afternoon on a warm sunny beach. The trails takes you some very picturesque wetlands. Bring your camera! Combine later with dinner at the Inn at St. Peters.

Deep Sea Fishing

Richards Deep Sea Fishing is a great way to get on the ocean and do a little fishing on a sunny afternoon or evening. They begin at the end of the local lobster season (end of June) and run through the summer and early fall. All fishing tackle is provided and you are encouraged to bring your own food and beverages (alcohol is allowed) as none are provided. It’s one of the best places to enjoy the ocean and the sunsets are amazing. I always go at least once a summer and always in the evening…reservations are required.

Local Galleries (within 10 minutes):

General things to do:

If you have the opportunity to see “Anne of Green Gables”, the theatre production, please do. It is a long running professional theatre production. Book tickets well ahead of your arrival on PEI.

Shopping:

Grocery shopping in Charlottetown: I recommend the new Sobeys on Buchanan Drive in North Charlottetown:

Dining:

All restaurants are basically casual dress…shorts can be worn in all if you feel like it.

Nearby (within 10 minutes)

The Lobster Claw: cheap and cheerful…its where the locals eat.

Richards: just across the bay…not fancy…great for lunch or quick supper on a sunny warm day…great seafood…portions are huge (recommend splitting a single order for 2 people). Also sell all types of uncooked seafood for takeaway.

The Dunes: incredible restaurant/gallery/gardens…moderately priced…reservation required…worth seeing even if you don’t eat there.

The Shaw Hotel: great place for dinner…more expensive…Sunday buffet is excellent.

Nearby (within 20 minutes…not in Charlottetown).

The Pearl: excellent food…more expensive…reservation required.

Delvay by the Sea: recently changed hands so quality is unknown…nice dining room…more expensive.

Glasgow Hills Golf Course: inexpensive…great view of the ocean on a sunny warm day.

In Charlottetown (15 minutes):

Lot 30: One of the best restaurants on PEI…more expensive…need reservation.

Simms Corner: Great steakhouse and oysters…try the Lucky Limes oysters (incredible)…reservation required.

Merchant Man Pub: excellent medium priced pub fare food.

Outside of Charlottetown (30 minutes):

Inn at St. Peters: more expensive, lovely dining room, excellent food, beautiful view over the bay…reservation required.

Golfing:

It is a major golf destination in Canada. The golf is truly amazing.

I recommend Glasgow Hills Golf Club (I am a member there, best golf club on PEI in terms of value and friendliness)! I also recommend The Links at Crow Bush, Dundarave and Brundenell River (found at the same site), Anne of Green Gables, and Eagles Glenn.

About: Welcome to my summer home! I built the main house in 2004 and added the 'south wing' (breezeway, garage and guest quarters) in 2006. Although I call it my summer home it is built for year round use. I have enjoyed portions of every spring, summer and fall at my summer home every year since 2004. I hope you will too!
