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!

Laurie Carruthers purchased this house in 2013

Why Laurie Carruthers chose Anne's Land

The view and the privacy of this property is unique. No neighbors, which means you can have fun and/or romantic days and evenings and not worry about seeing a single soul. We are close to all attractions ,beaches., restaurants, seafood and more! We also provide a FREE National Park pass during your stay valued at $100!

What makes this house unique

You can walk along the shore when the tide is out to the Sou'West bar and Grill They offer great food and local entertainment. Just down the old heritage road, you can find a popular restaurant called the Kitchen Witch. On the way to the kitchen witch you can veer off the dirt road to a beautiful trail in the woods. We are located on a private lot with no neighbors so you have complete privacy to enjoy your hot tub, campfire pit and gorgeous views of rolling meadows and red cliffs. You can get oysters from the local fisherman directly off the boat and canoe the surrounding wide river . This property has breathtaking views. You can see the eagles, osprey and herons fly right by your large windows. It's an amazing sight! The tranquility of this sanctuary will change you!

This house is located about 40 min from Charlottetown in a newly developing area. It is the only house on the street so is super private and quaint. The house itself is beautiful with white walls and huge windows.

The owner was always available when we had questions.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about how much we loved our trip to PEI and how much of that is attributable to this great property. Our group had four adults and four kids (ages 7, 5, 2.5, and 2). This can be a tricky group to accommodate, but the house did so beautifully. The location was great...easy access to the things we wanted to visit more than once: the beaches, hikes, and Anne attractions in Cavendish. We had no trouble making day trips further afield, and in doing so, never found a part of the island that would have been a better home base for us. As for the home itself, it was well-equipped with everything we needed to prepare most of our meals at home (with such easy access to fresh seafood, cooking at home made more sense than torturing a restaurant and its patrons with our crew!!). The large yard, hammock, canoe, and low-tide beach were enormous hits with the kids, who spent every possible moment outside exploring the beach, swinging in the hammock, or throwing a ball.

Laurie was easy to deal with and very responsive when we had any issues or questions. She does a great job of maintaining the home and keeping it immaculate. Thank you!!!

As for activities on the island, we did clamming with Experience PEI and lobster fishing with Top Notch Charters, both of which were amazing and highly, highly recommended. The beach at Cavendish is an easy drive from the house, great for kids, and free, thanks to the park pass provided with the house. The drive along the coast was beautiful, yielding a lot of the classic PEI vistas.

I wish we could go back tomorrow. If we did, we would certainly rent with Laurie again!!

Stunningly beautiful inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

Oh, did our family of 6 love this house! Bright, clean, spacious (the center table held a 2,000 piece puzzle and there was still room for our computers), and with every amenity that we could need or want. Sumptuous beds and linens, top-notch cookware, shower heads, soft white towels, canoe, boats, flat screens, water shoes, a park pass: such attention to details. Peaceful at night the moon light on the river and at day the deep green farmland framed by a ribbon of blue from the river. Due to rainy weather, we spent a large amount of time at the house and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We were visited almost daily by a pair of bald eagles. This house is minutes from Green Gables, yet secluded. I'd be remiss if I failed to mention Laurie, the owner, who welcomed us and was a delight to get to know. She told us about the kite surfing on Malpaque- something we had never seen. This house is just one more reason to love PEI!

Perfect vacation in the most. Beautiful. Cottage. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

Secluded yet close to amenities, this was truly a paradise cottage. Beautiful house on an amazing property afforded us complete serenity. The amazing views are constantly on display and you can really take advantage of the pastoral scene playing out right outside your windows. The owner was very helpful but we had no concerns with the property at all. Everything was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and in working order. Hoping to return here every year.

Big pros: I had my 12month old with me and it was very easy to baby-proof the cottage and yet allow him free-range. Great for those who can't do stairs as two bedrooms are on the first floor. Wonderful restaurant (Sou'West Grill) just down the road offered great meals and atmosphere on the water. Cavendish also close. You do need a car to stay here.

There is no swimmable beach right on the property but National Park beaches were minutes away and we did not feel this was an issue at all.

Great home in PEI

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our 5 adult children had an amazing time at this home. It is everything that it says. It is well located and very private. The hot tub was a big hit with our group. It was extremely clean and well cared for. It is 45 minutes from Charlottetown and 20 from Cavendish. The local Sou West Bar and Grill about 3 km away is a great place for dinner of lunch. I would highly recommend this rental home.
