Property description

Weekly Rentals only. Saturday to Saturday.

Situated behind a grove of birch trees, this custom-built, ten-year old, two-story, cedar-shake cottage overlooks a three mile wide bay -- perfect for sailing or canoeing.

The countryside is green and rolling with meadows and forests interspersed between livestock pasture and potato fields. From the 72' x 12' deck which surrounds the house you will experience fabulous sunsets descending over the Montague River which is visible from Clements Cove to Georgetown. The Lower Montague Wharf is part of the view as are the lobster boats moored next to the occasional yacht.

The well-groomed, two acre lawn in front of the house is surrounded by birch, pine and spruce on all sides - ideal for kids and dogs. The house interior has been recently renovated with new floors and replacement windows. There is now a new full bath on both floors, and an all new modern kitchen with up-to-date appliances including dishwasher, The washer and dryer are in the basement and there is cable TV with VCR/DVD player in the living room. Upstairs there are three bedrooms plus full bath: a good sized master bedroom with queen sized bed and a full view of the water, a guest room with a double bed and, a child's bed room with a single bed.

Visitors can swim on the beach 100 yards down from the house, but there are much better beach options within a 5 to 25 mile range. PEI accurately claims The Gulf Stream gives us the warmest waters north of Florida.

Local seafood is excellent, abundant and a bargain. The lobsters, mussels, clams, haddock, halibut, cod and other species are fresh daily at the local supermarket or from roadside trucks in Montague.

The town of Montague is three miles away and has restaurants, super markets, hardware stores, and fitness club with indoor pool and water slide ($35 weekly family memberships). Across the Bay there is the Brudenell Resort (12 miles by car) with 36 holes of championship golf, tennis, horseback riding , windsurfing, and even lawn bowling.

Travel by car is pleasant, but flying to Halifax and renting a car is an option worth thinking about. The trip from the airport to the Wood Islands ferry is about two hours; the boat trip is an hour, and then you have a 25 mile drive to Lower Montague.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: I grew up on PEI in the house down hill from the cottage. A house now owned by my sister. I have always come back to PEI every summer and about 25 years ago my brother and I decided to build the uphill house described in this listing. Since then we have constantly updated the structure and the amenities. It is now fully modernized with internet, cable TV and an up-to-date kitchen and laundry. Last fall I replaced all the windows and re-did the downstairs floor with a high end vinyl product.

Why the Owner Chose Lower Montague, PE, Canada:
Lower Montague is unique on PEI. There is a by-pass, (route #17), so only local traffic passes by. And not much of that. The Bay is to the north-west of the house so most nights you can enjoy a spectacular sunset from the 72' x 12' deck surrounding the house.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The view from the cottage takes in the confluence of the Brudenell, Montague and Cardigan rivers and is over 2 miles wide. On the water to the left of the house is the Lower Montague warf where local fishermen moor their boats. You'll see them return to port every afternoon around 3:00. If you want to see them leave, better get up early.
