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!

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.
A great beachfront paradise retreat
We had a great time. The hosts were great, and sent us some great tips to enjoy the local area. Hot-tubbing watching the sunset was the best. Take a road trip to Victoria by the sea. Great spot. 100% worth it.
Beautiful house, location & hosts
We were greeted by one of the owners who took time to explain details of house & how to contact her(them) if we needed to. We had 10 adults and two 3 year olds in our party. Plenty of room for everyone and the yard was huge for burning off extra energy. Hot Tub was definitely appreciated & loved by most of the adults after long days being tourists! Small draw back was the bedroom by the kitchen was not very sound proof but we worked around it. The beach was just around the corner within a very easy walk and able to spend hours wading in warm pools after tide went out or could swim in ocean if you wanted & kids had so much fun finding hermit crabs ( all released back with no injury to animal or human :) ) and building sand castles!
Easy drive to Summerside for shopping & not far from Charlottown or Cavendish either. Highly recommend this house for your next PEI getaway. We will be keeping contact info for our next vacation in PEI!!!
Thank you Kathy & Leon
Nothing but great things to say about the Blue Heron property. It was home away from home, even better.
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.
