About Laurie Carruthers
Hi! My name is Laurie and i am an 'Islander'! I moved back home 14 years ago and purchased cottages in Stanley Bridge area. I loved the area so much that when i sold my business in 2012, i decided it was time to build my Dream Home! I always loved Anne's Land. My dog, Maxi and I spend a lot of time on the beautiful trails and beaches out here. Since i built this home, it brings me so much peace. This house/area really does something wonderful to you as you will see for yourself :) I owned 3 more small businesses but decided to start a new chapter last year and i sold everything and now i am a full time realtor on PEI. I With my business background especially in accommodations; along with being a Islander, born and raised, and being a tour guide, i can help make your experience here on PEI an unforgettable one!

Absolutely Beautiful. Perfect in every way
This was our first visit to Prince Edward Island and it was fantastic. My wife and I and our adult children shared this beautiful place for a week and loved it. Upon arrival we found the house spotless, and very accommodating. The kitchen was well equipped, which is important since we are all foodies. The decorations and appointments were beautiful. The location is fantastic, easily driveable to all the sights and attractions you will want to see. We love seafood, and we were able to buy oysters right in the back yard from a local fisherman. Local fresh caught lobster,mussels clams etc are available close buy. I can’t say enough good things about this place, we truly loved it.
A truly beautiful Home away from Home!
We absolutely loved our stay in this gorgeous home overlooking the Sou West River! We loved waking up to the spectacular views out the large windows to the river & pretty farmers fields! We all delighted in seeing the bald eagle soar by often & rest in a tree by the water. The oyster fisherman also provided great interest to our two small grandsons. Our daughter & son in law loved relaxing in the hot tub once the children were in bed & we all appreciated the comfortable beds! The kitchen is well stocked & we found it easy to cook, barbeque & entertain in the magnificent dining room! Our guests were truly impressed! Laurie is wonderful, answering any queries right away & checking in to make sure we were comfortable. It was great to have the beach pass & we visited a few fabulous beaches, Cavendish & Brackley among them. We also must mention Table restaurant which is an innovative & delicious restaurant a five-minute drive from the cottage! Make a reservation as it is busy! We bought fresh seafood & fish from Gallants in Stanley Bridge which was convenient & fabulous! All in all, it was a fun & memorable holiday with our family & our two little grandsons are already planning next summer!
Beautiful, well-appointed home with panoramic views of water and countryside
This home is a perfect retreat for families. We loved the open concept kitchen-dining-great room with floor to ceiling views of an expansive lawn leading down to the water. Beds, baths, bed linens and bath towels made for very comfortable stay. Kitchen well-equipped. Lots of wide open space outside for kids to run around, play frisbee and bocce ball; lots of shoreline to explore and walk at low tide; canoe to paddle; quiet setting and yet central location from which you can easily access everything the north shore has to offer. Cavendish Beach and Cabot Provincial Park an easy drive. Nice touch that a National Park pass was included with stay. Owner Laurie was very prompt to reply to any questions we had about the property and made us feel very welcome. We can confidently recommend this property and look forward to coming back.
Luxurious home with spectacular views
We had a wonderful time in PEI! The house is exactly as pictured. It is spotlessly clean. Everything was so comfortable. We enjoyed the central air, hot tub, the beautiful bath tub in the master bedroom, comfy beds, and the well-equipped kitchen. We used the canoe and our kayak (we brought the kayak) almost every day. So amazing to just walk down to the water in the yard and go. We used the National park pass to explore, went deep sea fishing (we went to the place on the Bridge next to the Sou’ East restaurant—such great people. We all caught fish (cod) and had a great time, back on land we even got to buy some gorgeous, reasonably priced pottery that the owner makes), we also made a visit to Charlottetown, which we would highly recommend (lots of great restaurants and shops). We also did a lot of biking. On the bikes we visited the Kitchen Witch—such nice folks running that place, bought a beautiful handmade silver necklace from Nancy at her silver studio, and purchased a beautiful print at Tony Diadoti’s art studio. We enjoyed the delicious ice cream at Cows, the girls made their own bathbombs at a great little shop next to the Lost Anchor, who makes delicious Fish and Chips. Our time in PEI was wonderful and the comforts of Laurie”s home made everything so relaxing. Laurie was always very responsive to our needs and quick to respond to any questions we had. She is a very hospitable and kind woman. On our last night we saw the most amazing double rainbow over the house. The island has enchanted us, we can’t wait to come back!
We've traveled to different countries and most parts of western united states. So we're talking some beautiful areas. We like to hike during the day and relax at night.
The setting for this house in conjunction with the house itself is our best ever.
Everything we needed was already there. We actually could have been content just
staying by the house and we're not at all the lounge around types. My wife loved the
décor with the nautical theme-beautifully appointed. The surrounding countryside was lovely. We're considering being repeat customers-which we've never done before.
A perfect view!
The property is beautiful. Exceptionally clean. Perfect place to relax. The Best Beds!
WiFi does not work - no streaming or even googling on any device.
The leftover open food in the cupboards and freezer from previous guests was not appreciated. Open Chips and half eaten bags of nuts, open ice cream in freezer etc - Gross. A habit that should be changed. Cookware is of low quality - some overused - fry pans that won't lie flat. Plates heavily scratched, heavy and worn. Not one nice salad bowl. Not a decent wine glass either.
The third party booking engine used by the owner did not calculate the taxes and pet fee into the charge. Had large unexpected payment at departure - so be careful!!!
I will respond to all of this. . Firstly when we talked on the phone you were elated and extremely happy with the property and the 2nd last day of your stay you were asking about my availability for next year. I know that there was a problem with the quote sent by vrbo but this was not not my error. When you booked you saw the rate and the base rate is plus tax in Canada (And you are Canadian) which you did not want to pay. I have never had This issue before with a vrbo quote but from now on I will pay very close attention as I know with technology mistakes can happen. This very thing happened to me with vrbo in North Carolina and yes it was unfortunate the quote came to me without the tax but when the owner informed me after we had left that she noticed the mistake i was happy to pay. This time of year gets extremely busy for us seasonal workers . You wanted me to cover the tax or the fee charged by vrbo when you only paid the off sesson rate of 2900 and the house was full of people and noticeably so.. Also You also never disclosed that you had a dog. My husband saw the dog and I heard the dog barking when we talked on the phone.. so yes I asked you to pay a pet fee plus tax Not disclosing the dog permitted me to take all of your deposit but I didn't do that. As for the Wi-Fi.. when the previous guests use up too much it gets slower I could have increased the package if you had told me it was this bad. Sorry about that but if Wi-Fi was so bad why did u want to come back next year? You simply told me it was slow which is common in rural PEI. But..end of this month, we will have fiber op so no more wifi issues thankfully. The food must have been a mistake. We always clean this out but I guess this one time it slipped our mind. Sorry. The expensive wine glasses I buy every year (8 per year) are always broken and replaced with cheap glasses. Your stay being in Sept you had to use the cheaper ones. However there were 4 good ones left. The pots and aluminum pants are very expensive but the t fal frying pans can get scratched and we do replace when needed. I have been staying here for over a month myself and never noticed a pan not sitting flat??. I have a lot of people in this house so it is impossible to keep everything new all the time. We have very expensive plates as well and 2 very nice salad bowls (maybe u didnt see them? ) and several nice plastic salad bowls. We will replace the scratched plates. Thank you for your comments.
We offer a free National Park pass that grants you access to the 3 National Parks
