Prince Edward Island Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 bath/shower, near beach, sleeps 6,Kensington, Prince Edward Island



This lovely cottage is in the Anne of Green Gables region of Prince Edward Island (PEI). It is ideal for a family of up to six. If you have a larger party, consider renting both the cottage and the farmhouse, which may be seen at HomeAway 200196 . The large tree shaded yard makes a wonderful playground. Peace, privacy and safety are abundant. Set back in a woods 1/3 mile from the farm road, there is no road noise or automobile hazard for children. The bathroom has been renovated, with new fixtures, since 2014. A beautiful secluded beach is just five minutes away. Excellent restaurants are a short drive away. And New London Bay with its fishing and lobster fleet is ten minutes away.

To see exact location enter 'Chrissydale Cottage' on Google Earth.

Many diverse family entertainment attractions, excellent golfing, and tennis courts are nearby. For a peaceful, relaxed visit to one of the world's most beautiful islands, this is the perfect spot.

Convenient Location: Chrissydale Cottage is located in the heart of the island, convenient to the most desirable north shore beaches, to the Anne of Green Gables historical sites, to shopping, golf, fishing and family entertainment. Set back a third of a mile from the road in a wooded site, it is also free from road noise and the risk of a child running into traffic. There is considerable peace and privacy.

Seclusion, peace and privacy: Only Chrissydale Cottage and a Victorian farm house are one this site, unlike the cluster cottages found in many places on the island. The caretaker of the cottage, Donald Johnstone, lives in the farm house across the road, so he is available for any needs, but is unobtrusive.

Clean and Comfortable: Chrissydale is furnished comfortably and is maintained for cleanliness and maximum livability. The spacious rear deck is also well furnished for relaxed living. The bathroom has been renovated, with new fixtures, since 2014.

About The Owner

I live in Florida and have been spending 2 weeks out of each summer in Prince Edward Island since 1990. I have 4 children who have all been here to visit with me. My youngest child, Alexa, has fallen in love with the home and the island as I have. She has been coming with me every year since she was 3 years old. I am an artist and find great inspiration from the beauty which surrounds my home in Long River. It is my retreat back into a simpler time where things all make sense to me. My heart resides in PEI all year round.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 1991

Why The Owner chose Prince Edward Island

My Mom and Dad found this property and purchased the 180 year old Victorian Farm House in 1990. My Mom called to let me know about this 'cute little farm house' located on the same property which was also for sale. I came up and immediately fell in love with their place as well as mine. My Mom and Dad spent many precious summers here. My Mom's last visit was in June of 2009. Although she was weak and frail she gathered up her strength for one last time to go to the place she loved the most. She died the following November. We released her ashes at Cape Tryon which was a place she loved to go to at sunset.I treasure our family memories of this beautiful magical island and feel such gratitude to my parents for finding it. We have friends now that we have become very close to in PEI and have watched their families grow along with ours.

What makes this farmhouse unique

For large families a unique benefit is to be able to rent both places out and be right next to each other. The privacy of our homes is very special. We are located inthe middle of cow pastures and potatoe farms. We wake up to birds singing and cows mooing every day.We are in the middle of the Island which makes it easy to get to all places you want to go. Our beach at cousin's shore is unique in the fact it has a freshwater stream which meanders from a lake and flows into the ocean, this stream is very warm in the summer and being shallow it is a great place for children to frolic. It is common to have bonfires at night on the beach.There are wonderful restaurants close by and last year (2013) Sting had a tour stop/performance in Summerside ,which is 15 minutes from our house. He was amazing. WE love going into Charlottetown for shopping,festivals,and fine dining. It is 45 minutes from our house.

We loved Chrissydale!!

  • 5 of 5

Chrissydale Cottage is a perfect setting for a fun, relaxing and comfortable vacation. I went with 2 friends and we were all comfortable in our bedrooms and found the house well stocked with provisions. I won't repeat what other guests have said other than to reiterate that the description and pictures posted here a very accurate. The location is a great hub for visiting many places around PEI, but the cottage and it's setting are so charming and relaxing that you'll want to stick around some as well. The nearby beaches and eateries are great. The neighbors are friendly and helpful but not intrusive. This is a great spot for a vacation and my friends and I highly recommend Chrissydale. We loved it!!!

Comfortable and Accomodating!

  • 4 of 5

We selected the cottage due to its proximity to Cavendish - only 10 minutes to the boardwalk and Cavendish beach. The cottage was very clean and accomodating for a family of 5. The bathroom is newly renovated and the three bedrooms upstairs had very comfortable beds. You don't need to bring a thing along to the cottage except for a nice bottle of wine to sip on the deck overlooking the rolling farmland. There is beautiful beach just 5 minutes away - a must to see for a walk on the beach at sunset. The owners were very easy to deal with along with the caretakers - who phoned and dropped by to make sure everything was up to our liking. If you are looking for a nice, affordable family vacation check out PEI and stay at Chrissydale!

The perfect island getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Chrissydale in 2011 following a beautiful vacation spent in the summer of 2010 there and were not disappointed. The bathroom has been freshly renovated and the kitchen freshly painted adding to the beauty of this cottage. The cottage is exactly as described on the site. It is close to a public beach (Cousin's) and a short drive to Cavendish, Brackley and all the other lovely attractions that make PEI so special. Being so far back from the road adds to the special feeling of this location, especially for people like us who are not too sociable on vacation. The Annandale Farmhouse is close to the cottage but having experienced 4 different sets of renters in Annandale we can honestly say that this has never caused a problem noise wise, and people going there seem to be seeking, like us, tranquility. The cottage is very clean, plenty of linens, quilts, towels (nice quality towels) and everything needed for hassle free packing (my husband hates packing the car for vacation!) The washer and dryer are fantastic for those with children and I was so surprised when the cleaning lady came and brought us clothing detergent, another extra!! The view off of the back porch is so relaxing, looking out over rolling potatoe fields and red roads. Within a stones throw of the cottage is a 9 hole free golf course which my husband and son enjoyed immensly going nearly every day. Within 5 minutes is a fantastic seafood outlet where we bought oysters and quahogs to eat after a nice day at the beach. I think I have nothing negative to say about this cottage. It is not luxurious but feels very homey, the furniture is very nice, the couches extremely comfortable, I would take it as my own cottage just as is. A must visit approximately 20 minutes away is the "The Great Canadian Soap Factory" the experience with the children was incredible! They were able to bottle feed baby goats and have a tour of the little farm where the goats provide milk for the soap making. Also "The Dunes" art shops and restaurants is another must see, 5 minutes from the Soap Factory.

Beautiful, time stands still!

  • 5 of 5

We have sincerely never felt so relaxed anywhere. It was so quiet we could hear the flies passing by while watching the sunrise on the porch. The cottage is a beautiful "home away" with everything a person could possibly need on a summer vacation. From beach towels and toys, to lobster pots and oyster knives. The beds are comfortable and clean with extra sheet if needed. Washer and dryer a big plus with a young family. The long driveway is perfect for young children to ride their bikes and the beach is very close. It is so beautiful that we reserved right away for the following summer!! Highly recommended for those who need to get away from it all!!

Great Vacation in PEI

  • 5 of 5

--> I just want to thank you for the great vacation in PEI. Everything you described in the email about the house and area was exactly as you said. We had perfect weather and

enjoyed everyday exploring a different part of the province. We went to Anne of Green Gables, Seal Watching in Murphy Harbour, Anne of Green Gables the musical in Charlotte Town and spent a day at Cabot Beach. Your property made for great pictures, especially the long driveway with the kids walking out it. The only disappointing part of the trip was when we had to leave. Once again thank you very much and I will highly recomend my friends to visit Chryssidale Cottage.

Thanks Scott, Kerry, Dalton, Kyrianne, Jarrett Thomas O'Leary

Cousins Shore
Car: recommended

Chrissydale Cottage is near a beautiful secluded beach at Cousin's Shore (a five minute drive) . Also, the beach is free, whereas the National Park beach at Cavendish costs $17 a day. Excellent restaurants are a short drive away. And New London Bay with its fishing and lobster fleet is ten minutes away. Privacy, peacefulness, and pastoral beauty are important features of the Chrissydale site. A spacious, tree shaded yard is great for family play. The large deck, with a 'million dollar view' into the church steeple community of Long River, is ideal for lounging with your morning coffee and for barbeques (propane grill provided). Many diverse family entertainment attractions, excellent golfing, and tennis courts are nearby. For a peaceful, relaxed visit to one of the world's most beautiful islands, this is the perfect spot. Nestled in a valley surrounded by pastures with cows, trees full of singing birds,and freshly plowed fields of grain,wheat or potatoes. This windswept island holds magic in its land.
