Overview

Georgetown Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 9 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 20-24)

This secluded 11.5 acre family estate is the perfect vacation spot for a family reunion, group of friends, corporate retreat or a wedding. With an abundance of charm, character, and treasures, this piece of Prince Edward Island history will leave guests with many cherished memories. The sandy beach at the end of the lane offers great swimming at high tide and clam digging and beachcombing at lower tides. The Confederation Trail for walking and biking runs along the old rail line that used to bring guests to The Highlands when it was a hotel (1930-1940).

There is fabulous golfing within a five-minute drive. Brudenell Resort includes Brudenell and Dundarave (two 18-hole championship golf courses), as well as horseback riding, kayaking, tennis, lawn bowling, dining facilities, and a spa.

The century home contains nine bedrooms (eight with their own sink) on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The first floor has a formal living and dining room, breakfast room, den, kitchen, pantry, and laundry/power room. There is plenty of everything needed for entertaining our guests.

The 1930's dance pavilion is adjacent to the house, and was built when the property became a hotel. Guests would travel by train, car, and horse to The Highlands -- to the dances that were held there. Two room-length balconies are perched over the plank dance floor; and a ping-pong table and basketball net are available for recreation in the Pavilion. The Pavilion also has a powder room, kitchen with sink, propane stove, fridge, and a barbecue. It is a wonderful place to eat or relax in the many comfortable chairs and couches -- enjoying the beautiful weather from the veranda or a warming fire inside.

Weddings: The property is a tried and true amazing location for a wedding! We will be happy to discuss this with you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We couldn't have dreamed for a better wedding day! The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and the pavilion was decorated perfectly. There were rave reviews all around and everyone of our guests had a fantastic time . . . our wedding day was as whimsical and joyous as we could have hoped for!!!

50th Wedding Anniversary for our Parents

  • 5 of 5

We had our parents Anniversary here and the place was perfect for it. We had a week of family fun, everything you need for entertaining is here from plenty of dishes etc. to a great place for dancing or a relaxing evening by the huge stone fireplace in the pavilion. The kids from ages 13 to 78 enjoyed the house itself, the basketball net and Ping Pong in the pavilion, games and the bikes, they were always biking into Georgetown or on the Confederation Trail. We also spent a couple days at the beautiful singing sands beach (awesome). One restaurant in town we all loved was Clam Digger's, great seafood.

Our family was mostly here from the west, Alberta and BC and even a few from Australia and everyone loved it and still talking about it, oh and wondering what occasion we can celebrate next to come back. Thank You Sandra for answering all questions I had you were great. Hope to see you again. Thanks Beth

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful is the first word that comes to mind. We were 4 generations of family, some coming from as far away as BC, finally able to all get together at one time and wanted somewhere special to celebrate our mothers 80th birthday and we found it!! From ages 1 to 80 everyone had a great time. The house, the history,the grounds, the pavilion all so beautiful and spacious.....finding it hard to come up with just the right words to describe it. The dining room was so large we could all sit and eat at the same table, the rooms all so beautiful and the pavilion (the best).....our own private karaoke bar.....games room.....dance hall....ice cream socials on the covered veranda while swinging on the hanging seats....ghost stories one stormy night, by a crackling fire and candle light. Like someone in an earlier review said....."if those walls could talk!" With out a doubt the BEST spot for a family reunion. Only regret is that we couldnt stay longer...but we'll be back next time we're all together...it won't be, "where we going this time?", it will be,"Don't forget to book The Highlands". Thank you Sandra for sharing this little piece of heaven so that we could make memories that will last a lifetime.

Notes:
The separate Dance Pavilion functions as a very large playroom for adults as well as children. There is a large fireplace (15 Ton of stone from South America), and a wood room. A large billiard table, and ping pong tables offer plenty of challenge. There are plenty of tables and chairs, and it is a great place to spend time, eat, stretch out with a book on the veranda or relax by a roaring fire in the evening.
