Perfect Location & Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was Ah-mazing. Darlene & Wade have a perfect spot for families.

The place was spotless when we arrived. Beds were great. Grounds were newly mowed and there was so much room for the kiddos. We had brought our own little blow up pool, washer toss etc, and the fire pit is a must for us when vacationing. It was so quiet and private compared to many cottages on the island. The cottage included a Park Pass- wonderful. We went biking up at Stanhope and enjoyed a day at Brackley beach.

We felt like we were home the minute we arrived.. They literally have thought of anything you need. We stayed in and cooked a lot, and the cottage had everything we could possibly want- including containers for leftovers!

It was buggy this week (usual for the Maritimes) and so the screened in sun porch was a favourite since we had 2 babies with us.

Everyone had some room to spread out and read, watch TV, talk , or sip coffee on the Lower or Upper decks.

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend renting this cottage to anyone and especially if you love to watch the sunrise. Wonderful breeze came through the back of the house which was just wonderful on hot days (plus they have lots of fans but we didn't need them)

We did the lobster supper in New Glasgow, (personal fav), Shining Waters in Cavendish, and the family went into Charlottetown on our last day- all within 15 minutes.

All I can say is RENT this cottage and ENJOY your serenity.

What a gem of a cottage and awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Darlene and Wade have one of the best cottages for privacy with more amenities to allow for a restful and active location. Each day you are greeted by birds and other local wildlife while sipping coffee or tea. The cottage is large with a sitting area on both levels. Amenities with cottage include baskets of toiletries, telephones, plenty of towels, great appliances (most are almost brand new and work well), easy to use grill and lots of room with comfortable furniture. Deck allows for easily grilled meals and screen porch is just a bonus. The view is great offering both beautiful sunrises and impressive sunsets. The area is quiet and peaceful with an outdoor fire pit (great for s'mores, hot dogs, fish and the like) along with another bench sitting area. Plenty of room for little ones to explore and play. We traveled one day to Montague/Georgetown area and met with friends. Another day we traveled to the Souris and Basinhead beach (including the fisheries museum). We also traveled to see the horses in the ocean at Tignish, the Potato Museum in O'Leary (be sure to eat here as the lobster stuffed potato, chili fries, grilled cheese, French fries and other items are great luncheon fare). Had a day with the Anne of Green Gables, Cavendish and Brackley Beach area. Did not have time for the Brackley Beach drive-in but this is something for us to do another trip. Don't miss eating at Breakwater in Souris (either lunch or dinner) as this is great gourmet food with reasonable prices. While in Charlottetown, we stopped to have lunch twice at a new place called the "Chip Shack" and this is definitely great for poutine, lobster rolls, fish/chips, apple chips (great dessert!) and the beloved PEI French fries. Returning from all of our travels to the cottage was like living a dream vacation. The convenience of traveling only about 15 minutes to Charlottetown and 5 minutes to North Rustico for essentials just adds to the benefit of the location. There is a small bakery in North Rustico (small yellow building) has the best bread, rolls and sweets - across from Fisherman's Wharf. Can't recommend Fisherman's Wharf as our meal there before was really poor but New Glasgow is a better choice for "lobster supper". Both restaurants are pricey but lots of new eateries are now located in Avalon Village (Cavendish) about 7-8 minutes away. Thank you Darlene and Wade for the great cottage and your welcome to us while staying at Blue Heron Cottage.

Relaxing PEI Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Blue Cove Cottage and if possible was even better than the first. The cottage is wonderfully equipped, the owners have thought of everything you could possibly need while on a family vacation, and exceptionally clean. Our dog even loves this charming little cottage with it wonderful vistas and fabulous green lawn.It is also within easy driving distance of a number of PEI attractions including Brackley Beach, Green Gables village and many of the Cavendish attractions. It is also an easy drive to Malpeque Bay which boasts a gorgeous little beach, complete with hermit crabs scuttling around in the water ( a true delight for children) and the Malpeque Oyster Barn - an understated eatery which arguably serves the best Oysters in PEI. If you want a place to relax, let down your hair and just enjoy your summer this is the place to rent!!

You should definately stay here

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place. The pictures do not do it justice.

Fantastic inside and out, with everything you could think of provided for you. The owners have gone out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Out teenage kids loved the bedrooms and the upstairs TV room.

Wonderful garden area and fire pit for roasting marshmallows.

The weekend was just not enough for us, or Shelby our labrador, so we will definately be coming back again next year.

Thank you so much Darlene, you have a terrific place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in PEI. The cottage was the perfect size for our family of 5 and the setting was tranquil. The owners were very accommodating and hospitable. We highly recommend this cottage.
