About the Property

Waterfront Property

We offer 3 cottages to choose from. Starboard and Portside are 2 bedroom beachfront cottages with cathedral ceilings in the open concept kitchen/living/dining rooms. Each of these cottages have a queen-size bed in one bedroom, and a single over double bunk-bed in the other. These 2 cottages sleeps 5 in beds. A blow up mattress is available for extra room if needed. They seat 6 for dining inside. You can enjoy a view of the lighthouse from the decks at both of these cottages, and watch the ferry pass back and forth to Nova Scotia. They have electric baseboard heat.

The Aft cottage is a 2 storey, 3 bedroom cape cod style house. It has 3 bedrooms with large skylights facing the ocean in two bedrooms. The first bedroom has a double-sized bed, the second bedroom has a single over double bunk-bed and the third has a double bed. Aft sleeps 7 in beds. It seats 8 at the table. Wooden floors in all 3 bedrooms. Oil fireplace, woodstove, and an infrared heater is available. The Aft sits back 1000 feet from the beach up on higher ground and has a water view and a 3 or 4 minute walk down to the beach. You can drive down to the beach as well. Lots of antiques.

Homeport cottages are down a completely private lane on a 20 acre parcel that faces the Northumberland Strait on the southernmost tip of P.E.I. The cove is shaped like a big horseshoe, and we are right in the middle. Enjoy beautiful sunrise/sunsets. The property has a beautiful 1000 foot long white and red deep sandy beach, and sandbars go pretty far out at low tide. The cottages are well spaced apart (600-1000 feet) and they have their own separate access to the secluded beach, with lots of room for everyone to have their own spot on the beach. You can hunt for bar clams, rock crabs, sanddollars, and hermit crabs on the sandbars at low tide, as well as walk for miles and explore in the tide pools or just relax on the warm sand and search for seaglass and other treasures along the shore. Great for swimming and and fun for kids building sandcastles. There is plenty of room on the beach and lots of large umbrellas with wooden tables, and chaise loungers to catch some shade on hot afternoons. Seals can be spotted sunbathing near the lighthouse by times. All 3 cottages have a 50 foot outdoor clothesline in addition to the drier. The cottages have a 3.5 Canada Select rating.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: We have lived here since 1975. We live on the property year round. Darryl fishes for a living.

Why the Owner Chose Lot 62, PE, Canada:
Leslie and Gordon moved here to the Island in 1976 to a property left to Gordon by his father. They looked every day for 3 years and finally found this property. They raised 4 kids here, and Leslie and her youngest son Darryl still live here and love to share it with visitors every summer.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Peace and quiet, smell of the ocean. Great for swimming, shelling, exploring, and long walks on the sandbars. Cooling factor the ocean has, especially at low-tide. Lots of space and trees from other cottages for your privacy. Wildlife: osprey, bald eagles, hummingbirds, rabbits On-site caretaker who can be a unicycling clown for birthday parties as well. Wood provided for firepits. Daytrips within reach anywhere on the Island.
