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.

Not yet convinced? Check out the details that follow, and then let us know you want to make McKfolly your 'home base' while here on holiday.

Owner info

About the owner: Hi. Welcome from John and Bev to PEI and the McKfolly Studio Loft. We are retired Maritime Canadians who chose 'the Island' as home after living elsewhere in Canada during our working lives. We're here on St. Peters Bay for three seasons of the year, and in Charlottetown and off-island for the remainder. We continue to discover and enjoy the natural beauty, many charms and attractions of Prince Edward Island and its residents. 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.
