About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

We invite you to enjoy our summer cottage – located in Canoe Cove, Prince Edward Island, about half way between the Confederation Bridge and Charlottetown. Glenshore Cottage is a paradise by the sea… a little fun in the sun… a summer delight! Spend a week (or more) relaxing, exploring and recharging. The cottage is just a two minute walk from an endless expanse of warm red sand.

The cottage features an open-plan great-room with new laminate flooring, lots of windows, gourmet cottage kitchen and French doors opening to the spacious deck... all overlooking beautiful Canoe Cove. A propane fireplace is enjoyed in the cozy sitting area, dining area or the kitchen. This wonderful vacation cottage is situated in one of the most desirable cottage subdivisions on PEI's South Shore. This well-maintained cottage is the perfect south-shore getaway!

Glenshore Cottage makes an an excellent base for island excursions. You are only 15 minutes from picturesque Victoria by the Sea; 20 minutes will have you exploring historic Charlottetown; and in 30 minutes, you can explore all the Cavendish attractions including the home of Anne of Green Gables.

About Helen Edley

Chris and Helen Edley live in Victoria BC, on Canada's west coast. Chris has spent many years living on the east coast and they love the beautiful south coast of PEI. They own a graphic design company, which, in addition to designing and producing interpretive signs for parks, also supports the international geocaching community with products and services through 'We hope that all our guests have a wonderful and memorable holiday and enjoy exploring PEI as much as we do'.

Helen Edley purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Helen Edley chose Prince Edward Island

After some memorable and relaxing family vacations in this area Chris and Helen decided they needed a vacation home to use themselves and to share with others in one of their favorite holiday destinations. With one son in the air force, they felt that the cottage would be somewhere he could visit and relax and get some 'home away from home' during his long postings away from family.

What makes this cottage unique

We like to start off with a Cows Ice Cream! You can get them on the ferry, in Borden when you cross the bridge or in Charlottetown on the pier! We have personal flavor favorites but we won't sway you - try them all! It's wonderful to spend the morning geocaching and/or exploring the island, then come back to the cottage for a late lunch before packing your towel for a relaxing afternoon on the warm sandy beach. The cottage is so close, you can slip back for a afternoon snack or a fresh towel... The 800 sq' deck overlooks the beach and is a magical place to dine, relax or just sleep! With almost half an acre at your disposal, you can set up a net and play some badminton or just enjoy the privacy of the property.

Nice little getaway spot by the sea

  • 4 of 5

This is very well kept cottage with a beautiful beach just a short walk away. The owner has paid attention to many details inside and there is lots of space in the yard for children to run around. We definitely enjoyed our time there last summer.

A little peace of paradise

  • 4 of 5

First time renting this property although the location is well known to me and well loved.

Cottage is well stocked with everything one might need and nicely decorated and maintained. Our stay was mid-September and we were very comfortable with the convenience of the fireplace for a couple of chilly mornings! Only disappointments were the bathroom shower which definitely needs some rethinking or upgrade as the door only opens up to 15ins (much exfoliation entering and exiting shower!) and the lack of any hooks/racks to hang clothes in second bedroom. Certainly minor faults but still attention to these two things would make it perfect.

Would - and have already - recommend this cottage!

Owner's Response: Hi Jenny, Thank you for your review and we will certainly look at putting a hook rack in the second bedroom. That's a great suggestion! We have plans to replace the shower in the next year or so, and hopefully you'll not experience so much exfoliation if you come back for another stay ;). This past fall we replaced the huge picture window in the great room and this summer our project is to replace the ENTIRE DECK! We appreciate the recommendation! Helen and Chris

Wonderful home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect cottage for our family in PEI. The owners were wonderful about allowing us a last minute booking and it was so nice to have beach access within walking distance of the cottage. Truly a wonderful cottage to stay at. We would stay here again as it was really good starting point for places like Charlottetown, Stanley Bridge and Cavendish and Confederation Bridge!

We enjoy your place very much. Is was just perfect for our family of four.

My son played a lot in the red sand. It was sunny but the little sea breeze make it very comfortable.

Perfect Getaway Spot

Very, very nice place. Great couple to deal with. Beautiful spot. We celebrated our second honeymoon using the cottage as home base. We recommend Glenshore Cottage to anyone coming to PEI. We will be back!
