I always enjoy the comments in our Guest Book and often find suggestions very helpful.
We started our season off with a lovely review.
From Our Guestbook...
What a wonderful week we have had. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful beach home with us. We have enjoyed the home, the beach and view and traveling around the Island. Everything has been beyond our expectations! Bristow, VA
This is an incredible house - the owner, Linda, is an artist, and it shows everywhere you look. Every room is a delight (even the bathrooms), there is interesting artwork on the walls, furniture is delightfully and carefully arranged. But the greatest impression of the house is of space, light and air. All windows have terrific views, all the rooms are generously sized - I could move in permanently, and sometimes it was hard to make ourselves leave the house to sightsee! We were two couples, and it was great to have so much space, though we did tend to congregate in the screened in porch every evening. The place is so well equipped, from a food processor to wine glasses for each kind of wine. It's immaculate - it felt as if we were the first people to stay there. Linda was very helpful and friendly.
The beach is great for beach combing (if you cut through the abandoned Boy Scout camp you come to a little sand beach, and can walk a long way at low tide), the lawn is good for games and frisbee. It is very quiet and peaceful.
We went to the Chowder House - it's terrific. But the food highlight was the little ice cream stand on the right as you drive down Point Prim Road - don't miss it. Cooper's Red and White was great, very obliging - they will order seafood and baked goods for you, and have a liquor outlet (it carried prosecco, so I was happy).
I recommend Kro in the Sky jewellery and Belfast Mini Mills, but make sure to get some of Linda's lovely handmade paper cards.
I recommend Heron Cove to anyone wanting to stay in a lovely house which combines all the comforts of home with a beach house ambience in a beautiful, peaceful part of the world
What can I add that has not already been said in the previous reviews? Heron Cove is as pretty as it is shown in the pictures. We joined two families and one guest from Europe in this lovely house and we felt like we had all the comforts of home if not more! The best room in the house is the screened porch; it is flooded with light both at dawn and dusk. We ate and played games there without any disturbance from pesky insects on those days where there was not enough wind to protect us from them. There is a lovely lawn where we played badminton or catch and we also enjoyed roasting marshmellows in the fire pit. My husband had decided to bring a large floatation device and I am glad he did; the water was so calm that we were able to just relax while floating a few meters from the beach. Linda is a perfectionist and her attention to detail is evident everywhere in the cottage including in the cleanliness. She is also highly responsive should you need help with anything. Lastly, I highly recommend the restaurant at Point Prim; the food is exquisite and the view is breathtaking. On your way there, you can stop at the bottle village where a man built an entire village with recycled bottles. Entrance is free although there is a collection box of donations for Halifax's Children's Hospital. We had a WONDERFUL time at Heron Cove and we all hope to return again some day!
Just like the pictures, picture perfect!
Great location with easy access to Charlottetown, and everywhere else in PEI.
Nicely furnished, extremely comfortable, full kitchen, lots of different places to lounge or play. Excellent property with great views. Nice to have 3 full bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. I wouldn't change anything.
Owner is attentive and made sure everything was in order, checked in occasionally, but also gave you your privacy.
I would return without hesitation, and have recommended the cottage to my friends.
We have four young boys and were very excited to make our first trip to PEI. We were thrilled. Not only is the house large and gorgeous, but the area and beach was wonderful, too. Linda was great, we appreciated all the little touches, fresh bread when we arrived and one time coming back from a day's excursion to find a dozen colorful blown up balls Linda had for us all over the lawn. Our boys fell in love with the place, the owner and the island, as did we. We hope to make it an annual trip! Thanks again Linda!
After the trials of traveling, we found Heron Cove a great place to relax and enjoy the many charms of Prince Edward Island. We loved our many walks on the beach as well as the trails nearby. Charlottetown being just a short drive away offered some entertaining afternoons. We took the city tour, went to the farmers market, had a great Cow ice cream (best in the world). Linda was so warm and welcoming not to mention the house was in perfect condition with lots of charming places to read. We took full advantage of the fire pit for the cool evenings. We highly recommend this great getaway to anyone wishing to visit PEI.
Magnifique et très grande maison de campagne située sur le bord de l'eau. Très bien entretenue et impeccable. De belles grandes pièces aérées avec de grandes fenêtres dans chacune des pièces. Tout porte à relaxer et apprécier le moment. Le petit café du matin sur la véranda, le souper tous ensemble dans la grande salle à manger vitrée. Jogging et vélo jusqu'à la Pointe de PointPrim, randonnées de vélo sur le sentier de la confédération. La propriétaire est très discrète et fait tout son possible pour rendre notre séjour agréable. Par exemple: la propriété est très propre, la cuisine est toute équipée, des films et des livres sont disponibles en cas de pluie. Elle se rend disponible qu'en cas de besoin. Le meilleur des deux mondes! Merci Linda de partager ce merveilleux endroit et nous permettre de vivre de beaux moments en familles. Du bonheur! Nous serons de retour en 2014!
Heron Cove Beach House is located in the community of Mount Buchanan on the Point Prim Peninsula. Point Prim, home to the island's oldest light house is a prominent landmark jutting out into the Northumberland Strait. The shallow sandy shelf surrounding the peninsula soaks up the sun at low tide, warming the ocean waters as the incoming tide crosses over. Swimming at high tide, is perfect
Other Activities: beach combing, birdwatching, clam digging
