Why Sheila M chose Prince Edward Island

I grew up in Stanley Bridge, in this house! My husband and I love coming home to the Island to spend our summers and purchased and renovated the family home a few years ago. We hope you love it here as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Coming from the city, this location provided us with ample space, peace and quiet and yet close proximity to everything we needed and love to do (especially beach walks and golfing)

Guestbook comments from the manager

This cottage was beautifully renovated with a huge yard and view of the river. It was very clean and well kept. The beds are very comfortable and the dining area is the key feature in this home. Its so nice to all sit together at the table and enjoy the view every morning for breakfast. The cottage is surrounded by trees and is very quite and private which is great for families. Just a cozy feel to this home. It also has all you need for your stay. (Towels, cutlery, cooking utensils, pots and pans, washer/dryer with detergent, dishwasher, t.v etc.) Its close to many attractions like avonlea Village, theme parks, beaches and everything anne of Green Gables. Just a few minutes away are restaurants and a place to purchase fresh seafood. No matter where you are in PEI you will want to drive around, there are so many spectacular views and cute tea shops and stores to see. The home was central to every place we wanted to see and with a newborn baby it was important to not have to drive for too long to get anywhere. The owners Kip and Sheila were so accommodating and answered any questions I had regarding my trip and stay. They even gave me websites of events going on during my stay and suggested places to see. They were easily available by phone if I needed anything and made a follow up call to ensure all was well and if we needed anything else. We went in September so it rained a bit and we had to spend a few afternoons inside, but we still had a wonderful time which says a lot about the home and PEI. In September several businesses close, but the advantage is everything is less expensive, a lot of merchandise is on sale, and all the national parks we went to were free entry (besides anne of Green Gables). I would definitely go back to this cottage no doubt about it!

Thanks to Kip and Sheila for being so kind and hospitable.

A home away from home !!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this vacation home for 2 weeks and it was an excellent choice for 7 adults as there was plenty of room and was very comfortable. This vacation home has an excellent location as we were close to golf courses, Cavendish Beach, shopping, restaurants etc. The owners were very gracious and welcoming and I highly recommend this vacation rental for anyone planning a trip to beautiful PEI.

My husband, adult son and I recently stayed at this wonderful house. We loved the location and how quiet the area is. But even more important we loved the house! The pictures are exactly right and you will not be disappointed. We made some beautiful memories here and hosted some extended family for an afternoon and they loved the place as well. We enjoyed a Celidah at the Stanley Bridge Hall, ate at the Oyster Bar and travelled all over the island from this location. The kitchen is well stocked with household items and we were even treated to coffee and jam upon arrival. The owners have done a wonderful job and we really felt at home.

Welcoming Home and Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Such precious memories were made while staying in this most comfortable home with its lovely setting. We had a wonderful view of gorgeous sunsets and evening walks. We appreciated that the home was within a short distance to many dining, shopping, and golfing choices. We would highly recommend the New Glasgow Lobster Supper for an excellent evening of PEI seafood. Save room for the all-you-can-eat pies. The nearby Glasgow Hills Golf Course stands out as a must play PEI golf courses. They had an all-you-can-eat mussels in the club house after your round. When entering the house from the driveway a beautiful yard with lots of trees greets you. We would all love to go back! Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Perfect Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home in the heart of PEI's North Shore in the fall of 2014. The home itself has been beautifully renovated in such a way as to create a large, open-concept living space surrounded by large bedrooms, a bright kitchen and convenient washrooms. It is perfect for a large family gathering! The home sits on a very private, landscaped property that overlooks the Stanley River...easily one of the most picturesque parts of the Island and handy to all the island has to offer recreationally. We kayaked on several of the rivers, caught brook trout minutes from the home, golfed at several spectacular golf courses, enjoyed ceilidhs at the hall just up the road, enjoyed the local oyster bar, visited the local artisan shops and of course spent awesome times at the beach! This home is literally minutes from all of this fun! Finally, we would like you to know that the owners are wonderful people who know the Island well and give great attention to detail. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for that authentic PEI experience.
