About Deborah Travers
We are a fun out going couple who enjoys meeting new people. We live in the old family farmhouse on the adjoining property to the lighthouse. We call the house, the "Laughing Lighthouse". During construction on the main tower, a local children's author named Katy Luke Perry wrote a children's book named the Laughing Lighthouse. With the various windows on the front of the lighthouse, when lit up at night, she thought it looked as if it was a laughing face. So, many years later, the name stuck.
Why Deborah Travers chose Kildare Capes
We started building this lighthouse retreat in 1987. The land is part of the original farmland that was in the Travers family. Our 2 children spent their summers growing up here and every other weekend in the winter months and also all holidays. The Travers family have been in Kildare Capes since the 1800s. We couldn’t imagine living anywhere other then Kildare Capes. Come let us share it with you.

Wonderful setting for small corporate retreat
Our clinical team spent two wonderful days at the Lighthouse. The space, both indoors and outdoors, allowed the team to gather to work in a comfortable setting, yet also had many areas available for small group discussions or private alone time. The feedback from the group was unanimous, this is the perfect place to meet, get away from it all and be in touch with the amazing PEI landscape.
The hosts were amazing, flexible, attentive and yet allowed us the space to make the Lighthouse our own for the duration of the retreat. We are already planning next year’s Retreat. The amenities, like the heated pool, hot tub and large fire pit, spacious kitchen, made relaxing very easy in the evenings. We cannot say enough about this property.
Great Oceanfront Location
We had a great holiday, this property is ideal for those seeking privacy, rest and relaxation. The nature surrounding the property is stunning!
Debbie and Scott were super welcoming, they answered all our questions and made us feel at home.
Wonderful place to stay
This place is absolutely beautiful. Views are stunning whether you are in the front room, lighthouse room, sea deck or roaming the huge grounds of the property. We loved the relaxing heated pool where we could put on some music or movie on the huge projection TV, then play some pool or bubble hockey. Seafood up the road was inexpensive and the property contains everything needed to cook pretty much anything, including tools for shucking oysters or eating lobster. There was even a wine fridge ! The owners Debbie and Scott were very welcoming and were available for anything. Debbie brought over a homemade pie for us which was delicious! For some the location may be a little remote, but it was exactly what we needed to wind down from our hectic lives. There are a few spectacular beaches close by which went on for miles and are relatively unoccupied. I only wish we lived closer as it's a 1300mile journey for us to get there !!!!
1 week in Paradise!
Words cannot begin to describe the incredible vacation we just had. I have booked several houses on PEI over the past 20 years and this is by far the best! Not only is this a true slice of heaven with its total seclusion, private beach, huge yard, indoor party room and pool, and light house.... Debbie and Scott, our hosts, made us feel closer than family....they made us feel like life long friends!
The drive up the driveway was like entering into our own private heaven. The light house is so warm and inviting, the kitchen begged me to cook, the pool begged me to swim!
each morning the sun came up over the ocean and I took my cup of coffee down to the beach and sat on the rocks and just absorbed the view, the sounds, the smell....I was home! I hunted for sea glass every day and found 3 pieces of the ever elusive blue glass! I swam in the crystal clear refreshing water and rejuvenated my soul.
We stargazed at night and competed to see who could see the most meteors.... it was amazing to say the least!
We ate dinner once or twice in Alberton... I had to have my fill of Poutine! we went food shopping in Tignish, bought fresh lobsters and muscles at the local fish market. We walked along the numerous empty beaches and swam in the surprisingly warm waters. I caught a baby shrimp with my bare hands.. We visited North Cape and walked the cliffs...saw a seal.
Debbie and Scott were amazing hosts! They welcomed us with a bottle of wine and a hand crafted note...gave us a much needed tour of their large home and taught us how to use all of the lights and stereos...the amazing theater system in the pool house... Anything we needed at all, they obliged.
We broke bread together one night and we had so much fun listening to their stories and their jokes! We were lucky enough to share in Debbie's homemade pies... AMAZING! Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer... never in all my years of traveling have I felt more welcome....more at home!
We can't thank you enough Debbie and Scott and we will be back the first chance we get! If you are ever in the Boston area....please come stay with us!
We miss you already! Marilyn and Chris!
