Beautiful 5 star luxury home a stone's throw from the beach
About Leon Sutherland
We are the twins Leon and Arlo Sutherland. We grew up just 'across the field' and enjoyed many amazing summers on the beach below the Blue Heron Retreat. Though we eventually had to move away from PEI for school and work, a large part of our hearts remain on the Island. Our parents, Lorne and Kathy, still live in the old farmhouse where we grew up and are excited to be your hosts at the Blue Heron Retreat!
Leon Sutherland purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Leon Sutherland chose Borden-Carleton
Our family has a long history in the area; our great-grandmother ran several businesses in the area and our grandmother was raised almost next door! Prior to our purchase in 2014, the Blue Heron Retreat was lovingly restored in 2007 and operated as one of only a few five star B&Bs on the island. Our family is excited to share this property with yours!

Perfect girls weekend
So enjoyed our stay at Blue Heron retreat. Beginning with the check in with Kathy who could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Communication with our host was easy and very responsive. This vacation home is spotless, with every amenity you could ask for. It was the perfect location to explore the eastern part of the province.
This is an excellent rental. It is a beautiful house that is perfectly maintained. The view and location are perfect. It was the perfect size to house 3 families. Everyone had space and privacy which made things so relaxing. Leon was there to greet us upon arrival and explained how everything worked which made our stay problem-free. Later in the week he dropped by with an ice cream cake which was huge hit, especially with the 5 kids in our group. Thanks so much for the incredible vacation!
Beautiful..... Roomy.... and a Perfect Holiday House
This property was perfect for our holiday getaway with our siblings and their spouses. It was beautiful, very roomy and an excellent house for us since each bedroom has its own bathroom. Each couple had their own privacy and the large living areas inside and out were great for dinners together, relaxation, conversation and games.
Catherine was there to meet and greet us with a tour of the house and answered any questions we had. Leon was available to answer and act on questions we had as well.
We had a wonderful week !!
Whole group loved it!
Everyone in our group commented on how great the accommodations at Blue Heron Retreat were. Having private bathrooms for each room was very helpful. People were also big fans of the hot tub with a view of the ocean at sunset. The kitchen is well set up for a large group to work in at once. Our hosts were very helpful and easy to communicate with.
I rented the house for all my cousins and I and we all agree it was the best vacation ever, the house was just perfect, clean in a quiet area and the owner was great. before I left I reserved the house again for next summer for what is now our cousins yearly vacation reunion
Fantastic Place to Stay!
The large kitchen, dining and living areas and a bathroom for each bedroom made it very easy for all of us to fully enjoy and entertain our family and friends. Of course the ocean views and beach are an added bonus to being at this location in tranquil Cape Traverse.
The Blue Heron Retreat is a short and scenic country drive from Victoria by the Sea, Charlottetown and Summerside. We are located within a short drive from golf courses, deep sea fishing charters, restaurants and so much more. Within five minutes of Gateway Village, a bright and interesting collection of shopping experiences at the PEI end of The Confederation Bridge.
The red soft sanded beach below the Blue Heron Retreat offers tidal pool exploration, beach combing and is an ideal spot for picnics. It features warm water for both river and ocean swimming.
