We found The Birches by chance and enjoyed the couple of nights we spent there. An excellent value for the cost. It is close to Charlottetown so getting there to see the sights was not a problem. At the same time it was in a rural area with pleasant views.

We stayed at The Birches for 4 nights in late September as we wanted to be near downtown Charlottetown. The cottages are in a rural area but are only about a 10 minute drive to the downtown area. The cottages are older but are clean and comfortable. Our cottage had everything a person needs and lots of little extras that... More

Our stay was great. The owners Don and Pat are such nice friendly people. We had a view of the river from one of the two executive cottages. They have other cottages on site but they do not have the view we had. The executive cottage has everything you need including a washer and dryer. Very clean!! Only 10 min... More

We stayed one night in a cottage that slept 7. It had a nice screened in porch with a table and chairs. The living area was small but very functional with a fully stocked kitchen. The beds were a bit hard, but comfortable. The was no air conditioning, but lots of screened windows to open. It was very clean and... More

We stayed at the Birches executive cottage last October for a family wedding. Most of the cottages were taken up by family members which was wonderful. We could all get together with lots of room. Our cottage was the last one down the lane, very quiet. It came with it's own Fox who visited daily just to keep an eye... More

We come here every June for a week (that should say it all); great location, beautiful scenery, so peaceful; cottage has everything we need (including a BBQ); Don and Pat Smith (the owners) are sooo accommodating.

Perfect location (the cottages are on Alexandra Point) for unwinding after a busy conference. Close to services and amenities (7 minutes form Downtown Charlottetown), and far enough away to be in a pastoral setting. Great blue heron watching from the covered porch. A charming view of Northumberland Strait. Pat and Don were welcoming and generous hosts, serving me as drivers... More

While the official address says Bellevue Cove, it is actually in Stratford. Most people will wonder where Stratford is, as it is quite new . It is across the Hillborough River from Charlottetown. Combines Southport, Bellevue Cove and Stratford, and has grown a lot since they put in the new Golf Course. Some of it quite upscale. The Birches have... More

Our stay was in a standard cottage for 3 nights. The cottage was small but wasn't lacking in any way. It was clean and well decorated. The location is good as it is maybe a 10 minute drive into downtown Charlottetown. There's a Tim Hortons and grocery store, gas station, restaurants about 5 minute drive. It's central location makes for... More

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
