Private Romantic Escape
Hi, Welcome from us, Melody and Val. We hope you'll decide to stay at 'The Steeple'. Val and I are both from P.E.I and have grown up at opposite ends of the Island, therefore we have a working knowledge of this wonderful Island from one end to the other. We have been living in Pt. Prim for 20 years. When You stay at The Steeple you'll be on the same 25 acres as our house (you get to be closer to the shore!). Plenty of space and privacy for both of us, the woods create a 'living barrier', your privacy is as important as ours. We are close enough but far enough away. If you have questions or looking for suggestions on where to eat, sightsee etc or wonder when the best tides are to dig some clams or where you can buy some lobsters right from the wharf, we'll be glad to help and share whatever knowledge we have.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Beyond our expectations
Everything about The Steeple Cottage and Mel exceeded all our expectations! After a week of busy travel, spending the last week of our vacation here was the perfect decision. The cottage is surrounded by nature! From the wildlife, to the ocean, to nights on the roof top deck, we couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing get away! The cottage had everything we could possibly need and more ! Mel was an amazing host, making sure we were all settled in and giving us tips on local things to see/do. We didn’t turn the tv on once while we were there, we were too busy kayaking, sitting at the beach, seaglass collecting, exploring the area and just unwinding. Definitely recommend The Steeple Cottage and would love to go back soon. Thanks for everything Mel.
Garden of Eden
We stayed for our honeymoon, and this was truly an island Paradise. Mel has taken care of every last detail and provided everything you need, without wasting space in anything you don't! There were two old pedal bikes to ride down the point, two kayaks to paddle out to secluded waters, a brand new grill, a rooftop overlook for watching the sunrise and sunset, great views, great privacy, great everything. We will definitely try to come back for our anniversary. Amazing place to stay!
This is a comfortable property in a beautiful location. Highly recommended. Unique building with steeple to view water. Well equipped kitchen. Close to a great restaurant.
PEI is the land of stories and now we too have our own PEI stories and the Steeple Cottage plays a large role in those stories (and memories).
When we first entered the Steeple Cottage the sun was shining in through the old refurbished church windows, illuminating the insides with natural light. We looked at each other, knowing we had made the right choice for our vacation. It was beautiful; one might even say it was literally breath taking. As we spent the next week there we came to appreciate even more the unique features of the cottage whether it was the view from the bell tower, the unique king size bed in what we came to call affectionately the “cave” with its beautiful painted murals, the outside “chubb tub” and shower, or the great indoor shower. We took great delight in all its unique features whether it was sipping that first morning coffee while looking out through those magnificent old church windows across the Northumberland Strait as the sun slowly lit up the seascape, catching the occasional shooting star as we sat upon the bell tower gazing dreamily up at the night sky, watching the local resident bald eagle glide upon the air currents above, or walking at low tide digging for claims (mostly unsuccessfully) but mostly enjoying the walking and talking with no one around in a remarkably beautiful and secluded setting. One of the best surprises was the outdoor tub. I confess we both found it shall we say somewhat odd (really – a tub outside) but after my first “bath” laying there in the warm water as the sun shone down upon me, well I was hooked and so was my partner. We both loved simply laying in that tub in the afternoon with the light shining down upon us before the sun disappeared behind the trees. While there were kayaks and bikes to be used, we opted for a more quiet and uneventful stay. We simply enjoyed the time to unwind in the seclusion that the Steeple Cottage offered. In a world of franticness it offered us an island of tranquility and we made sure we made the best use of our time there to unwind. It was a time of rest, rejuvenation and provided the perfect opportunity for us to step outside our busy lives and reconnect.
Mel and Val were the perfect hosts. They were always there to answer our questions, or occasionally would check in with us to see if there was anything we needed while remaining respectful of our space and time, never intruding.
I hope we can return there again next year.
This was our first trip in many years. We were not disappointed. The cottage is amazing and provides everything you need for a wonderful experience. The property is gorgeous and the owners very friendly and helpful-Mel and Val are amazing! Mel and Val have truly provided a once in a lifetime experience; they have not forgotten a thing! We highly recommend a vacation to this island paradise! The outside shower and bathtub was an amazing experience. The serenity, solitude and privacy were of utmost importance to us and the Steeple delivered! Well Done!
No ordinary place
After reading all the reviews there really isn't much we can add. They simply state the truth about this place and the hosts. If you need a break from the rat race at home or some time to reconnect with the one you love, this truly is the place that can make that happen. Thank you Melody and Val for sharing your little piece of paradise.
