There are incredible water views from every room of this home. Whether lying in a comfy queen-sized bed or curled up with a favorite book, glance out the window and imagine yourself at sea.

A spacious bedroom on each of both levels is complemented by bathrooms with a spa tub upstairs, and a shower downstairs. In addition, there is a double hide-a-bed for extra members of your crew.

A modern, well-equipped galley (or kitchen) downstairs has all the amenities you might need to satisfy voracious appetites whipped up by tough days outside at play. There's also a dishwasher to help with clean up after meals. Or spend the evening on the wrap around fiesta deck watching an incredible sunset and barbecuing the fresh catch of the day.

Foul weather is never a problem at the cottage, as bright sun splashed colors enliven the space. Television, videos, and VCR pass the time and a complimentary long distance phone card lets you catch up with friends at home who missed the boat this vacation.

For adventurous sea-farers, bring your canoe, kayak, or windsurfer and launch it from the boat slip on site. A hot outdoor shower awaits your return! Beautiful beaches, red road bike paths, a convenience store, and many other local attractions are a stone's throw away.

Why LeeAnn Weeks chose Prince Edward Island

The Shores is a GREAT spot for your PEI vacation for so many reasons: located within minutes of Thunder Cove Beach, waterfront view is amazing, bonfire pit, playground, bbq, wrap around deck, bright fresh cottage, super layout, Jacuzzi, sat tv, wifi, privacy, parking, comfy beds, cool interior, and many many more reasons ~ you should come check it out for yourself!

What makes this cottage unique

We've been complimented so many times on the interior design and layout of the cottage. With a queen bedroom and bathroom upstairs, and the same downstairs, the cottage provides lots of privacy for families or couples traveling together.

Guestbook comments from the manager

LeeAnn & Greg,

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at the blue cottage and experienced PEI. We had an absolutely beautiful time and we're very sad to go.😥. We loved everything about our vacation from the lobster and seafood dinners to the sunsets and breezy ocean air. Walker loved the ocean, he actually dove in for the first time, along with many other experiences. This has been our best vacation thus far and cannot wait to come back! Hopefully there will be room for us at The Shores! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Sincerely,

Lovers of PEI,

Jeff, Emily and Walker

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely weekend a The Shores. The cottage had all the amenities, a breathtaking view and cozy beds. A long walk along the shore was the highlight of the weekend as well as the bonfire at night. The cottage was decorated with a wonderful Maritime flair and was spotless. A great time was had by all. Thank you LeeAnn for creating such a happy and relaxing atmosphere.

Home sweet Home... if even just for a couple days

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved it! Clean, comfy, perfect for my daughter and I as we passed through on bicycles. The view was fantastic, the cottage was perfectly clean, all the amenities were as advertised. OK, the one DVD we tried to play was really lame... but the satellite TV was perfect and we got to watch the stanley cup finals, so 5 stars for entertainment as well. My daughter and I biked to nearby cabot state park and walked the beach and the nearby campground had a great variety store for all the basics to make our stay complete. The nearby restaurant, ship to shore, had the best mussels I've ever had. All in all, it was everything I had hoped for and more.

Cottage in the heart of the maritimes

  • 5 of 5

This cottage could not have been cuter! You have a beautiful view of a very sheltered bay and red sand beaches to spend the day at are only 5 minutes down the road. You are close to everything, we especially loved the 10 minute drive to the fish market where we bought fresh shellfish every night for dinner! It was quite a and peaceful and the cottage had everything you needed. We loved the nautical decor and enjoyed spectacular sunsets each night from the deck. For a true PEI experience and relaxation, look no further.

Great Property but needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

We spent a week at the Darnley Cottage in mid-September. There is lots to recommend about the place: very comfortable beds, really great cottage layout and design (the upstairs lounge/TV area is a real treat), and close driving distance to some spectacular beaches. It is dark outside at night so star gazing is terrific. It falls short on the execution, however, and needs a few days of repair catch-up after a summer of use: kitchen chairs are almost too wobbly to sit on, one blow dryer but two bathrooms, dribbling faucet and broken tap handles, unravelling carpet and ripped bedskirts. More attention to looking after the place would make it a 5-star property, but at the moment, it is just “average”.

Unique cottages in a great setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on PEI and our little red cottage was a perfect home. The setting is wonderful, with a great bay view and the large windows let you enjoy at all moments of the day. We were only two people, so it was definitely a luxury home for us, it would be great for a family.

I was a little worried that it would be out of the way, but it was actually really easy to explore from our base at Darnley - and there are some great places to go locally too.

We really enjoyed Thunder Cove beach and eating Oysters at the Oyster Barn in Malpeque. It is very easy to get to Charlottetown too.

PEI left a wonderful impression on us, everyone we met was so friendly, lovely beaches, great food - totally relaxing.
