First we must share that to visit Prince Edward Island has been the dream and hope of our oldest daughter (who lives in Missouri) since she was 12. Her wish, "Dad, when I turn 30, will you take me to see Prince Edward Island and Green Gables"? She turned 30 this year and we began over a year ago to... More

We arrived late in the evening, we were very specific about what we were looking for. We asked that we have access to the Beach and were told it was a 7 minute walk, very misleading. Could not walk to the beach and for me, that was the most important part of the trip. We had reserved it in March... More

12 years ago I found The Birches Cottages listed in the PEI tourist guide. I wanted a place near Charlottetown to take my Mom and Dad, yet still be in a quiet, rural country setting. I hit the jackpot big time with The Birches!!!! We were so impressed with the beautiful location, the immaculate excutive cottages and the warm and... More

We stayed for 3 nights in mid September. We were to have a studio for the first night as a cottage was not available but to our surprise when we got there we were put in the executive cottage at no extra cost for the first night. Pat and Don were wonderful. . When we arrived tired after an 8... More

Our families stayed at The Birches for our wedding in July for a week. Pat and Don were welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. The cottages are clean and fully equipped . The location was perfect, and close to all amenities. Our only wish would be that they had a fire pit to enjoy at night .... More

Nice little neat houses with washing machine, dryer, dish washer, ironing board, detergents, etc!! I only saw the management once when she came to check if we were enjoying our stay. For the cottages close to the shore, there is no WI-FI connection, mostly for the small devices.

My husband & I stayed here for 5 nights in July & had a lovely stay. After travelling round Nova Scotia for 10 days it was good to put our feet up & relax in our homely, comfortable cottage. We like peace & quiet &The Birches fitted the bill perfectly. The owners, Pat & Don, are the loveliest couple &... More

We stayed here one night and had to catch the ferry to Nova Scotia the next day. The cottage was very clean and had all the conveniences of home. It is off the beaten path and in a quiet area. We never saw the owners, but when I spoke with them over the phone they were very nice. We would... More

Stayed in the Executive Cottages over Thanksgiving Weekend. Cottage was clean, the location was great. Definitely good value for the money. Only, thing I would comment on is that the owner woke us up hammering on the cottage repairing a screen in the morning. Can't say I liked that, but other than that it was nice.

Booked here rather at the last minute when we decided to extend our stay (but could not) at another property.... and wow. What a fabulous little gem of a place! Super owners, cozy location (seeing cows every morning was wonderful!), and very, very peaceful. Very functional kitchen and living area, and a comfy sleep. Maybe just a tad off the... More
