Montague Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)
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 and there is now a new full bath on both floors, an all new modern kitchen with new appliances including dishwasher, a full laundry in the basement and cable TV with VCR/DVD player in the living room. There are 2 video stores in Montague which is three miles away. 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.
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 (12miles by car) with 36 holes of championship golf, tennis, horseback riding , windsurfing, and even lawn bowling.
Travel by car is pleasant, but the option of flying to Halifax and renting a car is an option worth thinking about. The trip to the Wood Islands ferry is about two hours; the boat trip is an hour, and then you are 25 miles from Lower Montague.
