Note - I have already emailed the property over a week ago with no response... We were very excited to stay here. We arrived rather late in the day, got our room key and went straight to dinner. Dinner was the best food we had on our entire vacation. Food was great and the waiter Mark (?) was an exceptional... More

Dalvay-by-the-Sea is a gem! The house/hotel, its cottages, it property and it location were heaven on earth. With our bigger family we chose a cottage for our 6 night stay - my 4 kids were sooo happy, loved the property with its tennis courts, large slopping lawn to the private lake and the beach just a few hundred steps away...

We just spent four days in a lovely cottage at Dalvay and I highly recommend the cottages. The setting/location of Dalvay is perfect, and it was a great base for our time in PEI. For the price of the cottage, there were a few issues that made it difficult to rate this as a top notch accommodation: there is no... More

We stayed one night with another couple. The spot is beautiful. When we showed up early they were very welcoming and allowed us to hang out on the grounds but would not check us in any minute before 3:00. We had planned to eat from the lounge/pub menu but they had some specific time constraints which forced us to eat... More

Great location, setting and food! Very comfortable atmosphere and location. Many places to sit and read a book- porch, sitting room or in front of the lake. Biking, beach and walking trails right out the front door.

My wife and I stayed here for one night during a tour around PEI. As we are big fans of this hotel and the part it played in the Anne of Green Gables films and Road to Avonlea, we were excited to stay. What we found was not what we expected. From the moment we walked in the doors we... More

I was a bit wary of staying here after reading some of the reviews, but in the end I'm very happy I did - one night was perfect. As many have mentioned, this is a very old building - which means you get a lot of history and charm with some sacrifices in comfort. I'm sensitive to noise and so... More
