Heaven in Heron Cove

  • 5 of 5
This is an incredible house - the owner, Linda, is an artist, and it shows everywhere you look. Every room is a delight (even the bathrooms), there is interesting artwork on the walls, furniture is delightfully and carefully arranged. But the greatest impression of the house is of space, light and air. All windows have terrific views, all the rooms are generously sized - I could move in permanently, and sometimes it was hard to make ourselves leave the house to sightsee! We were two couples, and it was great to have so much space, though we did tend to congregate in the screened in porch every evening. The place is so well equipped, from a food processor to wine glasses for each kind of wine. It's immaculate - it felt as if we were the first people to stay there. Linda was very helpful and friendly.
The beach is great for beach combing (if you cut through the abandoned Boy Scout camp you come to a little sand beach, and can walk a long way at low tide), the lawn is good for games and frisbee. It is very quiet and peaceful.
We went to the Chowder House - it's terrific. But the food highlight was the little ice cream stand on the right as you drive down Point Prim Road - don't miss it. Cooper's Red and White was great, very obliging - they will order seafood and baked goods for you, and have a liquor outlet (it carried prosecco, so I was happy).
I recommend Kro in the Sky jewellery and Belfast Mini Mills, but make sure to get some of Linda's lovely handmade paper cards.
I recommend Heron Cove to anyone wanting to stay in a lovely house which combines all the comforts of home with a beach house ambience in a beautiful, peaceful part of the world

So beautiful and such a relaxing place

  • 5 of 5
After the trials of traveling, we found Heron Cove a great place to relax and enjoy the many charms of Prince Edward Island. We loved our many walks on the beach as well as the trails nearby. Charlottetown being just a short drive away offered some entertaining afternoons. We took the city tour, went to the farmers market, had a great Cow ice cream (best in the world). Linda was so warm and welcoming not to mention the house was in perfect condition with lots of charming places to read. We took full advantage of the fire pit for the cool evenings. We highly recommend this great getaway to anyone wishing to visit PEI.

Magnifique séjour!!

  • 5 of 5
Magnifique et très grande maison de campagne située sur le bord de l'eau. Très bien entretenue et impeccable. De belles grandes pièces aérées avec de grandes fenêtres dans chacune des pièces. Tout porte à relaxer et apprécier le moment. Le petit café du matin sur la véranda, le souper tous ensemble dans la grande salle à manger vitrée. Jogging et vélo jusqu'à la Pointe de PointPrim, randonnées de vélo sur le sentier de la confédération. La propriétaire est très discrète et fait tout son possible pour rendre notre séjour agréable. Par exemple: la propriété est très propre, la cuisine est toute équipée, des films et des livres sont disponibles en cas de pluie. Elle se rend disponible qu'en cas de besoin. Le meilleur des deux mondes! Merci Linda de partager ce merveilleux endroit et nous permettre de vivre de beaux moments en familles. Du bonheur! Nous serons de retour en 2014!

Even Better Than I Expected

  • 5 of 5
Our intention on this trip, as a group of nerds, was to get all riled up playing board games and then bother everyone in the vicinity but we only succeeded in the former. I let the owner know beforehand -because she seemed like a lady who liked to host and be generally helpful- that we were probably going to keep to ourselves, and so no problems ensued. She was really nice and even baked us a cake despite being what I thought was pretty loud and also locking ourselves out twice.

The surrounding area was really nice. We went for a short bike ride and *almost* made it to this great chowder house at the end of the peninsula. (We went there in cars later, and it was sooo good.) The little grocery store about had as much ice cream as we needed and was only two repeats of MIA's classic dance tune "Boys" away (so, ten minutes). We were nowhere near the horrors of Cavendish, but Charlottetown and Montague were about the same distance away (35-45 minutes) so we could easily make half-a-day trips to get away from each other.

The cottage itself was lovely, and I don't think the photos do it justice. We never got tired of looking through the wonderful library, and my only complaints about the kitchen can easily be attributed to having waaaaay too much stuff in my own. (Who needs seven different whisks? Me, I do.) We didn't get much beach time because it was pretty rainy the week we were there, but I imagine if it had time to dry up it would be lovely to sit out on the sand bar and look at the water and such.

Anyways, so I really liked this place.
Would recommend for: People who want to cook a lot, sit and read, explore, be indoors while feeling like you're outdoors, etc.
Wouldn't recommend for: People who imagine PEI is a tropical island with white sand beaches and plan accordingly.

Let me start by stating that my family has rented many properties on the island for vacation - and had some lovely experiences - but this one was special. The home itself is beautiful and designed in a manner that lends itself to a relaxing gathering. The kitchen is so well laid out that cooking was a breeze (having the ability to have many bodies in the same space helping was a plus - AND it added to the whole togetherness factor of our time together). There are areas throughout Heron Cove that one can find a quiet, comfortable space to waste the afternoon away with a good book by an open window blowing a delicious breeze in. Or, many times we would simply wander down to the shoreline to get out feet in that beautiful red sand. At the end of the day , as the sun was setting, we frequently sat in a vast screened in porch - talking about our adventure that day and what was in store for tomorrow, ,,,,,,,,,Bliss. Point Prim chowder house just up the road - went twice - superb. But the greatest part of this trip was getting to know Linda. She was very careful about NOT intruding on our vacation (so I had to work a bit harder)...but she is SO LOVELY. Always there to help while consumately maintaining her guest privacy. She is a gem!
The house was clean - well maintained with and excellent layout of amenities. If you are seeking peace, tranquility, beauty - this is your spot.

Heron Cove was everything it said it would be and so much more. The house was very clean with all the modern amenities. The kitchen had everything you could ask for in a modern kitchen. The house has very large well laid out rooms to relax and enjoy the cool ocean breezes. There was plenty of space both inside and outside the house which was great since it allowed plenty of opportunity to do new things. The salt marsh was beautiful and a lot of fun to beach comb at low tide. Linda, the owner was very kind and made sure we were always comfortable. She was always ready to give a helping hand and gave us many great recommendations! Overall, our stay at Heron Cove was an experience we will never forget and would be delighted to come back. Make sure you go to Point Prim Chowder House for a lovely seafood dinner. It is just down the road.

Heron Cove Beach House is located in the community of Mount Buchanan on the Point Prim Peninsula. Point Prim, home to the island's oldest light house is a prominent landmark jutting out into the Northumberland Strait. The shallow sandy shelf surrounding the peninsula soaks up the sun at low tide, warming the ocean waters as the incoming tide crosses over. Swimming at high tide, is perfect

Other Activities: beach combing, birdwatching, clam digging
