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

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 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.

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.
