Description

The space

Beautiful & simple cottage on 800 feet of private sandy beach. This charming cottage is well maintained, well equipped and perfect for a family that wants to connect with nature and one another. One large open concept room with large sturdy dining table, full kitchen with all new cabinets and appliances, separate new construction bath with new tub/shower combination, large screened in porch and living area with two new sleeping futons with fresh linens as well as a real bed in the loft area that sleeps two more. This cottage is all new construction, with brand new appliances, pine floors, and large wrap around deck with amazing ocean views.

Wooden stairs descend to the warm, safe waters of the Northumberland Straight where swimming, canoeing (canoe and paddles and life jackets are provided), clam digging, muscle hunting and beach lounging await. There are only a couple of other homes nearby and they are seldom used. Often the beach as far as the eye can see is all ours for days at a time. This cottage is NOT in a subdivision with many other cottages nearby. This is one of very few large wooded, oceanfront country lots, never farmed or subdivided. It is on an unusually large, private and scenic 10 acre oceanfront lot with 800 feet of beachfront.

The cottage interior is lovely, all new and simply decorated in a clean, cheery style. Two new futons (with extra memory foam mattress toppers) in the main room fold out and sleep four. The sleeping loft above sleeps two in a double bed. To get to the loft you have to go up a ladder, so older people or those with little children might prefer to sleep on one of the two comfortable downstairs futons. Fully equipped cottage kitchen with brand new pots and pans for summer 2017. Seating for five on the screened in porch with new outdoor dining set for summer 2017. Outdoor shower with warm water. Huge panoramic ocean views. Hear the waves crash as you sleep.

No phone, no internet, no TV and you won’t miss it. Berry picking, clam digging, reading, story telling, canoeing, muscle hunting picnicking, bird and rabbit watching will fill your time. The cottage does have good cell phone reception.

Many Eastern PEI daytrips are also close at hand--Roma Three Rivers Historic Village, two golf courses, spa and beachfront horseback tours, Elmira Railway Provincial Museum, the famous white Singing Sand of Basin Head Beach (always voted PEI's best beach), and the Fisheries Museum are just some of the easy daytrips.

Ice cream and candy store, fish and chips shack and tourist information center (with free internet access) are only a five minute drive away. Also just down the road ( 2-3 minute drive) is a provincial park with laundry, playground, and small store. The Rossignol Winery and Vineyard with wine tastings is about a five minute drive away. The towns of Montague and Murray Harbour are both an easy 15 minute drive. Try the character filed and well reviewed destination restaurant, 5 Cafe in Murray Harbour. There are many charming restaurants with homemade PEI food, community concerts and celeighs, harbor cruises, and historic sites within a 15-20 minute country drive of this cottage. The bustling town of Charlottetown is 45 minutes away. Here you’ll find theatre, fine dining, big box shopping, farmers markets, and boutiques.

Guest access

Guests have access to a canoe, paddles, two adult life jackets and two older children's life jackets. There are many outdoor toys, books and games that you are free to use as well.

The neighborhood

Eastern PEI is our favorite part of the Island. We love the authenticity of the people, the activities, cultural venues and restaurants. There's a lot to do with a 20 minute drive of our cottage and Cavendish and Charlottetown are only about 45 minutes away. But, Eastern PEI has a distinctly more authentic feel than other parts of the Island in the summer. Brehaut's Restaurant is a local favourite--sit on the Adirondack chairs on the big front porch while waiting for a table and you'll find yourself chatting with many friendly local people. This restaurant serves homemade pies, chowder and great milkshakes and burgers.

Just a five minute drive from the cottage is an old-school candy and ice cream store located at the Wood Island's Visitor Centre, and just a few miles in the other direction is the Rossignol Winery with wine tastings, local art and award winning local wines for purchase. Two lighthouses are also nearby as well as one of PEI's most authentic ceilidh venues, the Murray Harbour Community Centre with family friendly evening concerts featuring local dancers and musicians of all ages.

Also nearby is the historic village of Roma Three Rivers, a Acadian cultural site with kid's camps and activities, a daily heritage lunch, Pioneer festival, garden tours, heritage trail hikes and interpretive tours of their beautiful and well preserved site.

Brudenell River Provincial Park is also a popular day trip from the cottage. Guided horseback trail rides are very popular here as are the daily interpretive programs, the on-site spa and the Brudenell River and PEI Dundarave Golf Courses.

Lovely spot near Wood Islands. Nice beach at low tides. Beautiful night sky; the stars were so bright! Great parks nearby and Charlottetown was just 50 minutes away. Nice selection of books and games for children and adults.

This cottage was exactly what my wife and I were looking for. A very secluded, private location, well-appointed with all the amenities we needed. Worked great as a base to explore the east end of the island, but given that the weather was very balmy we actually spent a good deal of time on premises just sitting and looking out over the Northumberland Strait. Excellent stargazing in the evenings, the beach at low tide was great to explore, and the soft shell clams we dug up were delicious.

Everything in terms of privacy, location were as described.

Beautiful location. Quiet and private. Welcome wine nice touch. For the price some furniture was worn/rusty, kitchen was a bit spotty in terms of dishes/pots pans and bed was a bit crude

Amazing setting looking out over the Northumberland Straight. At low tide it is a paradise for the kids to go out and explore the vast sand flats. The water was warm for swimming and we saw seals most mornings. The cottage is cute and well maintained. Jordan was very responsive and welcoming.

Great way to allow people access to the cottage by using key code. Very simple and straight forward.

Jordan was amazing at responding to my questions before our trip. The pictures shown here on airbnb are beautiful but being there is more beautiful! The neighborhood is quiet & the cottage is very private.
