McKfolly** Studio Loft
**McK·fol·ly, n. The McKenzie's - and - your whimsical and extravagant ... structure ... for diversion or amusement ... one's indulgence.
People from everywhere are attracted to Prince Edward Island, Canada. This special place is accessible, uncrowded and unhurried. What you seek is here - relaxed pace, fresh air and temperate climate, red country roads and endless shores, outdoor recreation opportunities, fresh seafood and farm-gate fare, artisans, music and song, dance and theatre.
If you are a couple, two friends, or an independent traveller on this Island, our McKfolly Studio Loft is where you’ll want to stay. Enjoy the polished style and creature comforts we offer while experiencing PEI's superb coastal life.
The McKfolly Studio Loft is a great place for one or two people to rest, have peace and quiet, to do creative work, explore nature and enjoy outdoor activities, or to seek out the Island's artisans, entertainment and dining venues. The daytime and moonlit views of the Bay, and starry night time skies, are outstanding from the loft and grounds. Situated waterside on the south shore of St. Peters Bay, there is on-site launching for your canoe or kayak, shore walking/combing and bird watching. (Note: on-site swimming is feasible but not ideal - shallow water, pebbly bottom. Outstanding white sand beaches suitable for swimming are just ten minutes away.) The rolled stone-dust Confederation Trail for walking, running or cycling, and birding, is at the top of the driveway. PEI National Park - Greenwich site, our superb North shore gulf and bay beaches, top-rated golf courses, and the retail services and entertainment you will want for pleasure and comfort are just minutes away.
When you stay at McKfolly, your independence and privacy is as important as ours. A stand of trees and forest garden separate the loft accommodation from our cottage home - we are nearby but far enough away. If you have questions or there's something you need in a pinch - we are available. We're happy to share whatever knowledge we have to make your stay all you want it to be. But above all, this is your holiday - your way.

At your request, we are happy to share with you what we have learned and enjoy here. Above all else, know this: PEI is a special place that is accessible, uncrowded and unhurried. What you seek is here. Make McKfolly your 'home base' when on the Island.

We immensely enjoyed our short stay at Mckfolly. Situated in the beautiful St. Peter's Bay Area, Mckfolly is the perfect place to stay!! Bev and John have thought of everything!! Beautiful views, tranquil location, amazingly comfortable bed, large, attractive and functional bathroom, CLEAN, good lighting, funky outdoor furniture- in short, it's just great and highly recommended. We enjoyed meeting and chatting with Bev and John, who were wonderful hosts!! We'd love to come back for a longer stay!! Eleven stars!!
Jewel in St. Peter's Bay
Ok, if you like the picture, you'll love this loft above the home owners garage. Everything was top notch. This loft was so comfortable, it really has all the modern conveniences of home located on St. Peter's Bay. We enjoyed watching all the water fowl and our little fox buddy that would sometimes roam the open glassland close to the cottage (very elusive and more scare of us) We enjoyed Rick's fish and chips in St. Peter's and the fresh lobster roll and fresh oysters in Souris at the lobster shack.
Had an awesome week in your immaculately kept loft
The loft was everything you promised. We enjoyed our daily trips about the area immensely, knowing our comfy home base was waiting ,fully equipped at days end. Shelley wanted to take the king bed home but I was sure you may have noticed.. it was a welcome retreat after full days of beach glassing, combing and sight seeing. Your property was very relaxing and peaceful. We welcomed your input to Island places and things to see and also appreciated the privacy provided to us. YOU ARE VERY GOOD HOSTS..THANK YOU. I am sure your future guests will always be more than pleased with the loft and surrounding property. Glad you found the ONE beer I left and even happier it created a bit of a stir over who got it...must be the Scot in me that likes to stir the pot a bit! Thanks again, take care, Shelley and Paul
Excellent stay in St. Peter's Bay PEI
We had a wonderful week at Mckfolly Studios. John and Bev are very kind hosts who have designed and equipped the loft to give their guests a quiet, luxurious stay. The loft has great views, is sparkling clean, with a very comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen with high end appliances. The location is wonderful, close to Confederation trail for great walks and views. John and Bev are lovely to chat with and provide great insight on the island including areas to visit and dine. Highly recommend. Thanks John and Bev
Best part of our East Coast Trip was staying at McFolly
My husband and I stayed at the McFolly loft for four days, at the tail end of our two-week East Coast vacation. If I could give this rental ten stars I would! Everything was perfect, especially the hosts John and Beverly, who gave us our space but were there when we had questions about PEI or the loft. They made wonderful recommendations on nearby beaches, places to eat or buy groceries and seafood. If there was anything missing they wanted us to let them know - but they thought of everything in advance. The loft was equipped with the highest quality items in the kitchen and throughout the loft, in excellent shape, and spotless. It was so comfortable and beautifully decorated. The king sized bed was unbelievably comfortable. Air conditioning is available, but we never had to use it as there was a great cross-breeze with all the windows open at night. Such a restful sleep - it was soooo quiet there - heavenly! Bike and kayak rentals are available in nearby Morrell and St. Peter's Bay, and the most picturesque part of the Confederation Trail is about 200 meters from the property. We spent an afternoon walking to Morrell (not for the faint-hearted, it is 7.5 km each way). I would have liked to try a walk to the town of St. Peter's Bay (only 4 kms) but sadly we ran out of time at McFolly. We would love to return to McFolly for another stay next year, and would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Thanks so much John and Bev.
Unforgettable views, unforgettable hosts
My husband and I stayed 4 days in this beautiful loft on the edge of St. Peter's Bay and the only negative thing I can say about our experience is "why didn't I stay longer?"
The hosts John and Beverly are friendly who love the Island and are eager to share the beauty of PEI through their loving attention to the loft, their guests and in their recommendations. They are definitely "kindred spirits" and make the loft an even more enjoyable experience. Bev especially helped me with a wedding dress emergency and did a wonderful job! Thanks Bev!
The loft itself is sun-filled due to the many windows everywhere. Every window has a gorgeous pastoral or water view and private. I enjoyed opening the windows and feeling the delightful breezes and smells of PEI. I especially loved the big window in the bathroom- I could take a shower with a view! The best view is from the balcony looking through the trees over St. Peter's Bay and seeing the white church in the background- unforgettable!
The kitchen had everything you could possibly need for vacation cooking. The bed was firm and comfy-the linens were soft and I slept so well! I especially appreciated the reading lights. Everything was well thought out and placed perfectly. You can tell a lot of time and thought went into organizing this loft!
I loved the privacy of this loft. I loved that I felt remote, but was actually very close to some great eateries like Rick's- THE BEST FISH N CHIPS EVER- make sure you get the haddock when in season- it literally melts in your mouth- no chewing required! We also ate at The Inn of Bay Fortune for their evening meal and it was well worth the money! A great experience! Also close to the confederation trail (which we didn't have time for this time!) and Greenwich National Park which is a must! After touring all over the Green Gables Shore, Charlottetown- I would com back to this part of the island and definitely to this loft.
I have already recommended this property twice to friends since our return and they will be booking for next year soon. This is a wonderful, magical place!
