About the Property

Quality, Spacious 3 bedroom 2.5 Bath, private, waterfront, fully appointed

Bay Fortune Waterfront Retreat is a modern 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bathroom executive vacation home located in eastern Prince Edward Island. This quality beautiful home is a spacious 1800 square feet offering a very private setting surrounded by trees on all sides except facing the water right out your front door which is also full southern exposure creating a nice warm microclimate! The house is a two level walkout with mudroom, kitchen, living room, propane fire place, bathroom, and two bedrooms upstairs. The bottom level has the master bedroom with en suite bathroom, rec-room and ½ bath. The kitchen is completely equipped with everything you will need to make your great island cuisine. All the linens, towels and beach towels are provided. There are lots of large windows to enjoy the water view and an upper wrap around deck with BBQ and deck furniture allowing you to relax after a day of touring our special island. As you walk off the lawn you will enjoy the long dock that juts out into the water where you can swim off or kayak. Also, a great place to take a lawn chair out onto and enjoy the natural beauty of our special Prince Edward Island place. If you are traveling with a pleasure craft then it is an ideal spot for your vacation, from the dock you can access the Northumberland Strait, and adjacent to the property is a private slip for launching your boat.


The retreat is fully appointed with many extras such as a fire pit by the water’s edge with free firewood, 2 Sit ontop Kayaks for your use, barbeque, outdoor and indoor games, beach chairs/ towels, etc. There is great swimming off the dock and a ladder is provided for getting back out of the water for your next dive.

The seaside town of Souris is only 15 minutes from the house, you can find all amenities. Both Fortune beachs (Front and back) are only minutes away and seven other long white dune beaches are anywhere from 15-25 minutes from the house including the famous "Basin Head Signing Sands Beach". There is a lot to see and do in the area like seal watching, clam digging, cycling, visiting East Point Lighthouse where you can climb to the top and experience a vista that is magnificent or visit other lighthouse all over the island. Near the very tip of eastern PEI is the Elmira Railway Museum. Learn all about our rail system that is now trails across the island. These trails were put in after all the railway ties were taken up and the Confederation Trail was made.

The island is famous for its seafood. Not far from the house you will find the long red sand beaches where you can dig your own clams. The flats in Rollo Bay are a great place to do this and only 15 minutes from the house. Or go into Souris and get fresh oysters, fresh lobster at the wharf from the fishermen, and the fish store has on hand all types of other fresh fish. Although there is lots of fresh fish you will also find fresh vegetables stands along the road or at Farmers Markets. We also have fresh poultry and meats at the butchers. There are a few high-end restaurants as well as family restaurants in the area for you to enjoy our island cuisine made for you.

About 10 minutes from the house is a 9-hole golf course, however that is only one of 28 golf courses that are on the island and in eastern PEI not far from the house are three of the best courses. Deep-sea fishing, whale watching or tuna fishing tours go out of Souris and North Lake and worth experiences.

So as you can see not only would you be staying in a perfect house but you will have lots to see and do on “Our Island”. Come and explore… you will love the cottage/ retreat and the area! Please call or send us an email for more information.
