Beautiful 5 star luxury home a stone's throw from the beach
From luxury ensuite bathrooms (which no one has to share) to impressive views, each room at the Blue Heron retreat is loaded with features to help make your stay on Prince Edward Island your favorite vacation ever. More than big enough to host two families or several couples, the Blue Heron Retreat goes the extra mile at every turn.
The Blue Heron Retreat is a stately home whose origin extends over 140 years. It has recently undergone complete reconstruction and renovation to include modern amenities and appointments throughout. The building was renovated and remodelled to operate as a five star B&B from 2007 to 2013. It has become a fully modern and luxurious 5 star retreat from the stress and daily concerns of a busy world to the easy pace of life and the sanctuary of The Gentle Island - Prince Edward Island.
Maybe your favorite experience will be relaxing in the outdoor hot tub overlooking the Confederation Bridge. Or it could be exploring the tidal pools on the red sand beach. Perhaps you will fall in love with watching the sunset over the ocean. Your favorite part may be coming home to the super comfortable beds and cozy bathrobes at the end of a long day exploring Prince Edward Island. Everyone who visits the Blue Heron Retreat discovers their own favorite experience during their stay.

About Leon Sutherland
We are the twins Leon and Arlo Sutherland. We grew up just 'across the field' and enjoyed many amazing summers on the beach below the Blue Heron Retreat. Though we eventually had to move away from PEI for school and work, a large part of our hearts remain on the Island. Our parents, Lorne and Kathy, still live in the old farmhouse where we grew up and are excited to be your hosts at the Blue Heron Retreat!
Leon Sutherland purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Leon Sutherland chose Lot 28
Our family has a long history in the area; our great-grandmother ran several businesses in the area and our grandmother was raised almost next door! Prior to our purchase in 2014, the Blue Heron Retreat was lovingly restored in 2007 and operated as one of only a few five star B&Bs on the island. Our family is excited to share this property with yours!

Nothing but great things to say about the Blue Heron property. It was home away from home, even better.
A beautiful home base to explore PEI.
Clean, spacious, elegant. Would highly recommend.
Much better than expected
We were a group of 9 adults and 1 child. We throughly enjoyed our stay and really appreciated the idea of having a bedroom with attached bathroom available for each couple. There was easy access to the beach which we walked everyday at low tide. One couple actually went swimming one day ...amazing for Sept. The kitchen was well layed out for multiple cooks and very well equiped.
This is thr 3rd cottage that I have rented for a family vacations and this one is by far the best todate.
Lorne and Cathy were quick to respond to all of our questions/concerns and were very helpful.
Thanks once agian Cathy for the Homemade Wild Blueberry Pie and Ice Cream. What a lovely touch!
Fantastic family vacation
We were a group of 13 - four families celebrating a 50 th wedding anniversary.The group ranged in age from 20 months to 75 years. The home easily accommodated all of us. The location is perfect with a lovely beach literally across the street. All the amenities you could want and Kathy was the perfect hostess. The peach cobbler was awesome! Thank you. The only suggestion would be perhaps a picnic table or such for eating outside during the day. Hope to return again, thank you so much!!!
Everything we needed
The Blue Heron retreat has all we needed and more for 6 adults and 4 children. It was our second summer there. The kids love crab hunting in the low tide pools! The Island has so much to do you're going to want to stay longer!
What a treasure! This home is beautiful, well-appointed, modern, clean and spacious. We were three generations (6 adults and 1 toddler) staying for a week and there was plenty of room for everyone. The location is a peaceful haven, with spectacular views and a stone's throw from the beach. Fun to wander out at low-tide! The hot tub, kites, bike, kayaks, pinball machine and sand toys all helped to make our week extra fun. Can't say enough about how wonderful it was and also how great Kathy, the caretaker is about ensuring you have everything you need. The week went by far too quickly, hopefully we can return someday!
The Blue Heron Retreat is a short and scenic country drive from Victoria by the Sea, Charlottetown and Summerside. We are located within a short drive from golf courses, deep sea fishing charters, restaurants and so much more. Within five minutes of Gateway Village, a bright and interesting collection of shopping experiences at the PEI end of The Confederation Bridge. The red soft sanded beach below the Blue Heron Retreat offers tidal pool exploration, beach combing and is an ideal spot for picnics. It features warm water for both river and ocean swimming.
