About Darlene Moodie

My mother's family grew up in Flat River just a short drive away. My Aunt sold us this property as she knew I needed to be close to the water. Every summer we have been down in Belle River enjoying the beach and making memories.

Darlene Moodie purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Darlene Moodie chose Belle River

When we built our cottage, first of all I kept it in the back of my mind to make it easy to clean, and it is. I wanted a cottage to rent out that would make the guest feel comfortable and at home and most of all bring back the simple things like doing puzzles, games and most of all having a wonderful vacation.

What makes this cottage unique

I love sitting out on the deck with my lawn chair and just looking at the water and the land and just enjoying the peacefulness.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay and had camp fires nightly despite the bad mosquitoes. The home was well equipped and comfortable and fairly close to all we wanted to do. Home owner was extremely easy to get a hold of when we had questions or needed assistance. One of my favourite places we have stayed over the last 5 years of summer trips to the island.

Peaceful and clean cottage with lovely sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay at Dee's Dream. We were a family of 4 (2 teenagers) and a small dog. The cottage was impeccably clean with many extras to help you enjoy your stay. Outside the screened gazebo was enjoyed in the evening after a short walk to the beach where we were often the only people there. Our dog enjoyed the freedom of the cottage grounds and chasing birds on the beach. We enjoyed that Belle River was so peaceful yet we could easily drive to explore the rest of the island. We look forward to returning to PEI soon and would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hi Sue Thank you for the kind words and I am so happy that you and your family had a great time. It is very peaceful down in Belle River and with that you can have a nice relaxing vacation. "Close enough to everything and far enough away for peace and relaxation." It has been our pleasure booking Dee's Dream with your family and I hope our paths will cross again in the future. Best wishes to you all! Darlene Moodie

Amazing vacation. Fun for the whole family.

  • 5 of 5

Dee's Dream was the perfect family getaway. The accommodations were better than described. Lots of room for the grandchildren to play along with Hank my Brittany Spaniel that could romp around the very private and spacious property. Kids loved the beach and the experience of digging clams to bring home for supper and finding clam shells to do crafts with. Thank you for sharing your beautiful spot. Lots of family memories were made and we are already planning next summers vacation. The Atkinson family

Owner's Response: Dear Kerry I am so happy that you and your family had a wonderful vacation and stay at the cottage. It is the perfect spot for kids to go out and explore and find all kinds of treasures. I am so happy you went clam digging. I often wonder how many of our guest take the shovels out and go. Thank you for the kind words and best wishes to all! Darlene Moodie P.S Our dog Eddie also loves it.

A comfortable, well stocked cottage in a lovely location!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. It’s a nice property with a short walk to a really lovely beach. Beds are a tad softer than our norm but comfy.

HomeAway Fom Home

  • 5 of 5

This really does feel like a home, not a rental. There’s everything you could want as far as amenities - the kitchen is stocked with every kind of dish, utensil, pots, pans,glasses that you’ll need. The beds and furniture are so comfortable and the screened in gazebo an amazing place to eat all your meals. The view is breathtaking and all you hear are the bird and the crashing waves. I’ve stayed here before and plan on a return visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words Diane. We try our best to make everyone feel comfortable and at home staying at the cottage and most of all to be able to relax and enjoy their vacation. My favorite spot is sitting upstairs on the deck and just staring out at the water or reading a book. It has been our pleasure having you stay for the second time We are so glad that you had a great time and I am looking forward to speaking with you again. Best Wishes Darlene

We were certainly not disappointed upon our arrival. This property is exactly as described, with all amenities you could ask for including a supply of paper products in kitchen and bathrooms! The place is spotless and beautifully decorated.

It is has a huge lot with views of the Strait from each of the decks. We had a fantastic time in PEI and staying at Dee's dream was certainly a highlight!

Belle River, Wonderful Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We were two retired couples traveling together with our two Labs and wanted quiet surroundings but convenient for day trips. Belle River met our needs perfectly. The beautiful house has all the conveniences plus the charm of a true vacation cottage. The view and access to the Northumberland waterway was wonderful for watching, swimming, and walking the beach. The ferry to Nova Scotia only 10 minutes away allows for easy access to Cape Breton and the mainland of Nova Scotia. Plenty of room for the dogs to run without worrying about road traffic. Would love to come back.

Owner's Response: Hi John I am so happy that you all had a wonderful trip to the island and you had a great stay at the cottage. It seems that all our pets love the open yard and the space to run. The cottage is in a good spot, close enough to everything but far enough to enjoy the privacy to relax and enjoy your vacation. Thank you very much for the kind words and I hope our paths cross again in the future. It has been my pleasure speaking with you on the phone. Best wishes Darlene Moodie

Located in Belle River only 45 min from historic Charlottetown and 8 min from the Wood Isles Ferry to Nova Scotia. Dee's Dream is a newer build cottage with a breath taking view of the Northumberland Strait. Located on 1.5acre lot it has horse shoes, volleyball, fire pit and a gazebo to relax at night time. A quick walk down to the beach where you can enjoy all the south side has to offer. It is a treasure chest for all ages! Close enough to all attractions and also far enough to relax and enjoy the peace that surrounds you!
