We invite you to vacation in our beautifully designed ensuite with a 3 1/2 Star Canada Select Rating.This is our third year of operation. We offer you a 500 square foot suite nestled in the quaint fishing village of North Rustico. We are situated on the National Park boundary, a five minute walk from a life guarded beach and surrounded by beautiful views of the ocean and bay. Every day fishing boats can be seen going back and forth from the harbour.
The suite offers you a queen-size sleigh bed with luxury bedding and a cozy sitting area with sofa and fireplace. We offer satellite TV, DVD player, a small refrigerator,microwave, coffee maker and the use of a National Park beach pass along with beach chairs and towels.
Wake up in the morning to the sounds of ocean waves, morning doves and listen to the soft hum of fishing boats as they head out for a day of lobster or deep sea fishing.
If you would like to try your hand at deep sea fishing during July or August, call Bob's Deep Sea Fishing at the Harbour for a booking.
Whether your interest is in a day of sunbathing, swimming, golfing or just exploring you have come to the right place and each night you can view a glorious sunset from the windows of your suite. You'll find after a few days with us that Rustico is not a place ... it's a state of mind.
Kayak and bike rentals are available at the harbour five minutes away and for your dining pleasure there are several restaurants in the immediate area as well as a short drive to Cavendish for a further choice of where to dine.
We aim at keeping our prices as low as possible so everyone can come and enjoy a beach vacation without the high prices, particularly in these rough economic times.
In order to do this we do not provide housekeeping during your stay - but we do provide fresh linens, plenty of towels, and general cleaning supplies if you need them.
If you did require daily cleaning it would be an extra charge of $20. a day.

Susan(blue shirt) and Patty(blue shorts) came to visit PEI 4 years ago on vacation -this time remembering our passports. We traveled from western Massachusetts where Susan taught at UMass for almost 30 years and Patty worked in the local elementary schools. We stayed in the ensuite for 6 days in the summer and fell in love with North Rustico,PEI - the views, the people-(who are so welcoming - excited that you found their island), the quietness, and the sense that the ocean is 20 minutes away from any spot on the island. The house and the suite were for sale and we bought it!!!
We thought we could become Canadian residents but at this point that is not to be. We have become Floridians for the winter and North Rusticoians for the summer. What a great adventure we (plus our English Mastiff, Standard Poodle, and cat have had for these last 3 years.
When we came to vacation at this spot, we so enjoyed sitting on the deck and reading, sipping our morning coffee, and relaxing after a day of traveling the quiet (in season) roads of PEI. When you stand on our deck you are facing the harbor where the fishing boats go out early every morning puttering by. To our north we can see the ocean and there is nothing more soothing to us than hearing the waves rolling in and out. The red sands beach is about a 5 minute walk and the harbor boardwalk and 'downtown' is a delightful walk down our hill. Again we are amazed at how inviting our neighbors and new friends are since we decided to move to Lantern Hill.
We share a deck with our guest, but I promise you you will have quiet and peace and beautiful views to relax and soak up on your vacation! You can lay in the hammock, pick vegetables from the garden(hopefully), go golfing,swimming(the ocean stays pretty warm with the Gulf Stream running through the St Lawrence Seaway), biking, hiking, eating, drinking, and listening to all different kinds of music. Lots of fiddling, fresh seafood, potatoes, and friendly people if you need some information in your travels.
