About Greg J MacArthur
My name is Greg MacArthur, I have lived in PEI all of my life, and love living in the country and being close to the water. I have two great children, and own a picture framing business. I can't get enough of PEI summers and can often be seen sailing in my catamaran to the sandy Cavendish dunes.
Greg J MacArthur purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Greg J MacArthur chose New London
I have owned this lot for years and only this last year decided to build this beautiful cottage on it. The view is the biggest reason for the cottage. On PEI, there are few spots where you can see quite this much.
What makes this Cottage unique
It's great for relaxing and privacy, and at the same time not far from all the fun things going on in this part of the island. If I want to go to the beach or to the buzzing Cavendish boardwalk, I can be there in minutes. If I want to have a quiet day with nature, I can go for a long walk through the green paths leading to the private beach, or go for a sail through the winding southwest river.

Beautiful & exceeded our expectations!
Our stay at this lovely cottage exceeded our expectations. The property views were absolutely picturesque. The property was stocked with all amenities required and then some – there were even musical instruments to play! The octagon room is great for those who want to stay awake late; others sleeping in the main area of the house were not disturbed whatsoever. There are multiple outdoor seating areas on the large property by the water. Plenty of room for outdoor entertainment (our choice was bocce ball) and a nice pit for evening bonfires. The kayaks were enjoyable and we were the only individuals enjoying the water, most days.
The cottage is minutes away from Gallant’s Seafood Market (highly recommend), Graham’s Deep Sea Fishing, Inn at the Pier (Parasailing, Watersport rentals), Stanley Bridge (exhilarating to jump off) and several restaurants. Cavendish, Kensington and Summerside are all within a 20 minute drive.
The owners popped by to visit and truly care about their guest’s enjoyment.
I would most certainly stay at this cottage again and highly recommend it.
Excellant place to stay
The property is beautiful. Has all the amenities you may need. Lots of outdoor space to enjoy the morning sun with a coffee and the sunset in the evening. Perfect location to set up a home base. Most things are about a 30 minute drive. Host checked in on first day and were quick to replace the propane when we discovered it empty. 5 stars all around
We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. It suited our needs to a tee. Not a single complaint. The cottage and the area were even better than we imagined. We were told by the owner that deck/balcony were re-done this year and we loved that because we spent a lot of time relaxing on the decks.
A PERFECT PLACE TO STAY!
Wow, this is such a nice place to stay! You can tell the owners have put a lot of work into making this place wonderful. We were told that some renovations were done over the fall and winter and I think this is why the place was even nicer than we expected. We loved the view overlooking the river and the fact that we were close all the fun Cavendish stuff and the super nice beaches, while also not being in the noisy overcrowded part of Cavendish. This time of year Cavendish so was much quieter but last year we stayed right in Cavendish and it was loud so I figured that was worth mentioning. It was an ideal spot. The owners were awesome and if we had any questions they would respond really quickly. Sweet people :). Just one of those trips that makes you really glad you did it. Can't say enough good things about this place.
Great family cottage / getaway
Great family get away - centrally located - close to lots of beaches and attractions. Weather was wonderful. Thanks for sharing your cottage
Nice spot. A few things i didnt like was the balcony off the master bedroom felt anything but safe. Lots of bugs, mostly beetles, even in beds. No AC so it was too hot in the afternoons. Wi-Fi did not work during our stay. Good things- well stocked. Kitchen had all dishes and appliances youd need. Has a bbq. Gorgeous sunsets nice little fire pit. Books to read, piano and guitar to play. Overall i enjoyes my stay but eouls not return for the price. My wife freaked about all the bugs inside at night
We were absolutely shocked to read about the complaints in this review. We have been living in and renting this cottage for many years and have never, even once heard of bugs being in the beds! We were so surprised and horrified to hear this that we contacted previous renters and the ones currently in the cottage now to ask if they ever experienced this. They all told us that they had never seen a bug in any of the beds, and that bugs in the house were not a problem at all. As with any building, we do recommend that renters do not slide back the screens on windows or leave doors open, as this could result in bugs getting inside. Had the renters contacted us about this during their stay we would have rushed out and addressed the situation immediately.
We were also surprised about the Wi-Fi issue. If this renter had contacted us we would have immediately rushed to fix it. We encourage all renters to tell us if there are any issues and if the Wi-Fi went down for some reason, we could have got up and running right away. The building is very safe and we were confused by the complaint about safety. Regarding the AC, we are clear in our listing that there is no AC, however, our other renters have never had a problem with heat because there are many windows, fans, and a nice breeze coming off the water towards the cottage. All in all, we are glad that this renter found it to be an enjoyable stay overall, but we would have really appreciated being contacted about these complaints during their stay. We could have addressed their concerns. We make a point in our rental agreement to encourage renters not to hesitate to contact us. We even give each of our personal cell phone numbers so we can be reached any time by call, email, or text. We even make a point to drop by during each renters stay, just to ask if everything is going well and if there is anything we can do to improve their stay and we did so with this renter as well.
Located in the Heart of PEI. A beautiful country setting with rolling hills and winding rivers, only a few minutes drive from all of the fun and sights of Cavendish.
