Be charmed by Cavendish

There are two sides to Cavendish. There's the one of the literary pages, where grass-colored country farmsteads and rattling carriages herald the home of Anne of Green Gables. And then there's the natural one, where the powdery sands of Cavendish Beach feather into grass-topped dunes over the Gulf of St Lawrence. Cozying up in Cavendish vacation rentals can mean experiencing both of those at the same time, with mornings spent picnicking beneath the erstwhile Victorian home of Lucy Maud Montgomery, and afternoons of deep-sea fishing in the whale-spotted Atlantic.

Things to do

Cavendish: Home of the Green Gables

Anyone who's ever been enthralled by the tales woven by L.M. Montgomery simply must make a visit to the Green Gables Heritage Place and the nearby Anne of Green Gables Museum at Silver Bush. The first showcases the timber-faced farmstead that once inspired Prince Edward Island's greatest writer, while the second unravels tales of her life and prose in a neatly preserved period home. Heritage done and dusted, the whirling slides of Shining Waters park beckon, while Cavendish Beach is a jewel in the summer.

Activities

The curiosities of Cavendish

A kaleidoscope of pursuits awaits on the doorstep of your Cavendish vacation rentals. Hop out onto the clifftop trails to feel the spray of the Atlantic Ocean meeting the rugged coast of Prince Edward Island. Go to the countryside, for literary-themed tours and heritage journeys through the cottages and woods. Or, hit the swells on a marine safari, to spot hulking humpback whales, galumphing porpoises, seals, elegant dolphin pods, minke whales, and more.

Weather

Catching the warmth in Cavendish

Cavendish _ like the rest of Prince Edward Island _ booms with visitors during the summer season. Cavendish vacation rentals on the beach become gateways to sparkling sands then, while those around the harbors of PEI turn into top bases for launching those deep-sea fishing expeditions into the St Lawrence Gulf. The months between May and August are also the busiest in the town, imbuing the lobster shacks and eateries with a lively energy. For more seclusion, the fall in September is a good alternative.

Natural features

Explore the Canadian coast in Cavendish

Cavendish crops out of the north shores of Prince Edward Island. The coastline there is a patchwork of blustery sea dunes, where swaying grasses fade into yellow-hued sands. You can walk the boardwalks and hike the mud-colored tops of the Cavendish Cliffs, making use of designated pathways like the Cavendish Dunelands Trail through the coastal wilds. Trips out into the Gulf of St Lawrence are a must if you want to encounter the region's rich marine life _ keep your eyes peeled for whales, dolphin pods, seals, porpoises, and more.
