Welcome to an executive summer home located in the heart of beautiful North Shore, Prince Edward Island (PEI). Located in sought-after Stanhope, minutes from the PEI National Park, a short walk from the beach and picturesque Covehead Harbor, and nestled next to some of the most enviable beaches in Canada. Stanhope Summer Home is perfect for your family vacation, golf destination vacation, romantic getaway, or even a few friends looking to spend time together and relax.
This is only a four-year old property with new appliances, fixtures, and decor creating a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere!
Stanhope has many nature trails, and hiking trails to explore. For those looking for more active sports, Stanhope is great for kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding, and biking. Golfing is always another option as there is a first rate golf course in Stanhope, perfect for an afternoon game.
After a long day at the beach or at one of the famous golf courses, sit back and relax on one of two decks - one which receives full sun throughout the afternoon and evening. Then prepare a barbecue or meal in the fully equipped kitchen to enjoy in the dining area or outdoor patio. For fine dining and an evening out, visit historic Dalvay-By-The-Sea, only minutes away. Plenty of restaurants, pubs, theater, etc. is located in Charlottetown - only 20 minutes away.
A walk along the Stanhope Bay path offers stunning, photo worthy sunsets and bird watching. Evening beach walks are just as spectacular. Or simply relax by the fireplace in the living room to unwind. Stanhope Summer Home will provide an executive stay in the beautiful seaside community of Stanhope.

We built this house a few years ago and are in love with the Stanhope area. In fact, we summer at a small cottage in the area, so are always available on a short notice if you have any questions or concerns (while respecting your privacy, of course!).
Johanna Egan purchased this house in 2011
We built this property because of the sought after location and it's proximity to beaches/golf/outdoor activities, yet only 20 minutes from the city centre, Charlottetown. It truly offers the total vacation experience!
“Love, love, loved it! The beaches are gorgeous and endless, the views are stunning, the ice cream at Cows delicious, and the fish chowder/lobster out of this world. Your house is designer chic, yet welcoming and cozy at the same time – a welcome respite after a long day exploring PEI – not the least of which is its location, perfectly situated within beautiful Stanhope! We genuinely enjoyed our vacation in beautiful PEI and were glad we decided to rent your fantastic retreat for two weeks. We hope to repeat this experience again!”-

We enjoyed a great holiday in your Stanhope Summer Home in September for 2 weeks. It was bright, spotless, loved the King size bed and the kitchen couldn't have been stocked any better. We would recommend your place to anyone interested. Thank you for your suggestions on where to eat, activities to do while we were there.
“What an incredible week we have had at your Stanhope Summer Home. We were so touched with your personal greeting card – noting the year of our anniversary- and accompanied by a nice bottle of wine, and then taking the time to show us the “secret path” used by locals to get to the beach. We saw many sunrises there as well as sunsets on the bay side – beautiful! Your tasteful and welcoming home was perfect for us in so many ways! Your kitchen has everything we needed to create delicious meals including (but not limited to) fresh garlic and herbs, tools to cut crusty bread from Breadworks, a tea set with diffuser for loose leaf tea, and all the implements for creating lovely date night dinners in your charming dining areas – handmade pottery, luxury stemware and flatware, etc. When we were not out touring and biking on the many nearby bike trails (especially enjoyed the Confederation trail), we really enjoyed relaxing in the Adirondack chairs on your deck or in front of the propane fireplace or watching a movie in the den or sleeping in the comfy king bed. Your home has been a delight to us and made for an unforgettable vacation!”
This is such a beautiful home in a peaceful setting! We really enjoyed staying here and enjoyed our daily trips to the beach and walking the cove trail. We drove to the beach because we had small children but it was just a 3-5 minute drive to a beautiful sandy beach. Stanhope offers a relaxing and peaceful environment. We didn’t expect the home to be so well stocked. The owners have done a wonderful job anticipating guests needs and providing a very welcoming and comfortable stay. We enjoyed staying at this beautifully decorated home. Would love to come back and will definitely recommend!
What a piece of paradise you have here! We enjoyed daily walks on the beach or bayside (and on the cold days would warm up in front of the fireplace after the walk). Love all the little touches that make your home feel so welcoming. The garden, fresh lilacs in the vase, interesting books, soothing color palette accents, etc. Also enjoyed your restaurant recommendations. We look forward to coming back!
Thank you again for opening your home to us for the second time in two years. The house is beautiful and your hospitality is so warm. Thank you for all the added touches like the garden, the wine, and the park pass. All appreciated. This year we went to Ross Lane beach 3 times, and as always we shopped at Richard's, and Josh's new store. We revisited our favourite Water Prince and thanks to Josh's recommendation, enjoyed a dinner and a lunch at Blue Mussel at North Rustico, a place we really like. We met friends at New Glasgow for the traditional lobster supper. Thank you for recommending Pure Spa. All tolled - a great week as always on PEI! Thank you so much. Carol and Laurie
It was great to be back on the Island. Your home is fabulous and we will praise it to all our friends and family. We had the best weather this week. It doesn't get any better, 30 degrees and sunny every day. Our daughter and son-in-law and 2year old grandson joined us for a few days which was a real treat. Every day we were at the beach, several days we made it twice. The water was at it's warmest. We visited with various friends that we don't see as much now that we don't live here. All in all, a very relaxing week. We miss being on the Island, but we will definitely be back, hopefully to stay at Stanhope Summer Home.
