About Gordon MacEachern
We bought this cottage in 2017 as a place to eventually retire. We live in Vancouver with our daughter and visit PEI every summer. When not using the cottage, we have decided we will let others enjoy it, hopefully as much as we do.

Why Gordon MacEachern chose Brackley Beach
I am originally from Prince Edward Island and have always known I would return to retire. Brackley Beach has always been one of my favourite spots on the island and now we own a little piece of paradise.
What makes this Cottage unique
This cottage is close to all amenities and only a short drive to Charlottetown. We love how Knotty Pines is truly cottage through and through. Cozy, cute and right on the water. There is no internet or cable access to disrupt your peace and quiet.

We really enjoyed our time at Gordie and Colleen’s house. The porch hammock was sublime and the location couldn’t be beat. The kitchen had everything we needed...we ate 3/4 nights there!
Comfortable cottage with lovely viee
Our experience at the cottage was wonderful. We're a family of five. My husband and I had a small bedroom, our girls shared the other bed, and our son slept on the futon couch. Everyone was comfortable, though it was a bit difficult for my son to sleep with the morning sun streaming in. He wore some eye covers, which helped. The cottage was very clean when we arrived, and we were delighted to find a sweet note and welcome gift waiting for us on the table. It was probably the most well appointment home we've stayed in. Everything you'd need was provided. We loved the screened in porch and spent alot of time reading, relaxing on the hammock, playing family games at the table or just enjoying the lovely water view. The only downside is that it's proximity to the water makes it a favorite spot for mosquitoes. We occasionally had to swat at them inside too, but if you stepped outside without spraying, you were likely to get bit several times. I don't think many would brave sitting on the outide deck unless they were covered in Deet. That said, we just learned to spray generously when we went outside. It comes with the territory, and wouldn't discourage us at all from staying there again.
The proximity to all that we wanted to see was perfect. A longer drive through the countryside to venture a bit further was a pleasure. The cottage is very close to the entrance to the National park, which is nice. There's a little corner store up the road, but to get to a real grocery store, you'll need to drive into Charlottetown.
Overall we definitely feel we made the right choice for our lodging on Prince Edward island.
Beautiful Water view in Brackley
We greatly enjoyed the knotty pine rental in the beautiful Brackley Beach area of PEI.
Cosy cottage on Brackley Bay
From the screened porch there is a delightful unobstructed view of the Bay. You feel part of the natural shoreline with its undulating beach grasses and shorebirds. The cottage is ideal for a small family or couple and it is well equipped. The owner was very prompt answering our questions and was responsive to suggestions. Many thanks for the welcoming treats. We would hope to return here someday.
Comfortable-a real gem!
The cottage was very cozy and comfortable with a well-stocked kitchen. The screened-in porch was a wonderful spot to relax in and enjoy the water and the birds, and was very private and quiet. The neighborhood was very convenient to the beaches and other areas on PEI.
Great View, Great location
Incredible location with Charlottetown 15 min south and Cavendish 20 min to the west and Brackley beach 5 min north. The waterfront view from the screened-in deck is beautiful; with a real feeling of space and being away from it all. The cottage is clean and has a fully stocked kitchen with every amenity you could need. Owner was very accommodating for any needs we had. Highly recommend!
