THE HIGHLANDS -CHARMING 11 ACRE ESTATE:CENTURY HOME & PAVILION

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.

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.

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!!!

Just wanted to let you know what a great weekend we had at The Highlands. The house was perfect. The dance pavilion was a hit - the kids loved having their own place to get away although we adults did invade the space each night for our "dance"(which of course mortified the teens!!) We had a great football game on the lawn and a long bike ride on the trail. A golf game at Brudenell, jumping off the bridge at Basin Head, and an outdoor Great Big Sea concert in Charlottetown topped it all off.

We had a wonderful time at The Highlands and really appreciate the whole experience here over the last few days. Not only was our wedding a beautiful event set in a captivating setting, but our family was able to share special moments over the time relaxing here. It is hard to imagine any place like The Highlands where we could have biked, played soccer, played volleyball, swam at the beach, and danced in the Pavilion, and many more great events. But most important, where we could all be together. Thanks so much for everything. It was truly on of the best experiences in our life.

The Confederation Trail runs by The Highlands and is excellent for walking, jogging, and biking. We have bikes and helmets at The Highlands for your use. Prince Edward Island is wonderful for biking as the trails are scenic and fairly level.

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.
