“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

I picked this place based on previous comments so thought I should put mine in! It is located in a perfect place, only 5 min to Brackley Beach. We had the lilac cottage and had a great view of the ocean. It had everything we needed.

You couldn't ask for better owners, Maureen and Bruce. They are very welcoming! Bruce even brought us down so coffee so we could have some in the morning. It's clear they love what they are doing and enjoy the travellers.

We will definitely be coming back!

Room Tip: Lilac cottage is a one room cottage that is in front of the other cottages so you don't see anyo...

We spent three weeks here in Sept. 2012 and had a wonderful time. (Most of this review dittos the Aug. 2 review.) The cottage was clean and comfortable and had a nice view of the water. The owners are great. The location is amazing: not far from Charlottetown and very close to north shore spots, such as North Rustico, Cavendish, and the national park. One note of clarification: the view is not of the ocean but of the bay (Brackley Bay? Covehead Bay?); but from the cottages you can see the dunes of the national park, on the other side of which is the ocean. The view was great, and it was also wonderful to be able to stroll down to the water. For anyone interested in birding: we saw Bald Eagles, Northern Harriers, Caspian Terns, Yellowlegs, Yellow-rumped Warblers, and more, from this spot. Highly recommended!

Just checked out and are already looking forward to a return visit. Our cottage was clean, private, perfectly sized and well upkept. Location is excellent, very close to Cavendish, Charlottetown, and the best beaches on the island. Our view of the ocean was excellent, with a very short walk to the water. Maureen and Bruce made us feel right at home, and made sure we were very comfortable. Thank you!! Highly recommended.

We had a lovely stay at Honeysuckle cottage in York Bay Place. Everything we needed was in the cottage and we had a superb view out to the ocean. Location was excellent, allowing us to do many activities during our stay. The National Park is right next door.
Would certainly recommend, especially for a couple's getaway.

I have stayed at York Bay Place 3 times now, and each time I'm there I never want to leave. It's a little piece of heaven in this crazy world.
Bruce and Maureen are very accomodating to any needs you might have.
It's a very private, quiet location-which is great for those looking for some R&R. There's no pool or beach frontage-so it's probably not the best type of place for small children. But for the couple looking for some peace and quiet, or some girlfriends looking for a nice weekend away...this is your place.

We were married at Beaumaris Centre, which is at the same location as York Bay, in September 2006.
We rented several of the cottages at York Bay for us and our guests, and had a wonderful time. Nobody had to drive to get to the wedding site, and we just held a surf and turf bbq for our reception around the cottages afterwards.
It was fantastic! Bruce and Maureen helped to make our special day very magical.

  • Liked — Quiet, very few kids, and dog friendly!
  • Disliked — No pool

A wonderful spot. Only fifteen minutes from downtown Charlottetown ,It is far enough away from the main road to feel totally private and the location is simply lovely. A terrific spot for children as it is totally safe. The owners, Bruce and Maureen, are welcoming and helpful.

My wife and I enjoyed ourselves immensely.

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at York Bay Place, Brackley Beach. The hospitality was supurb, Bruce and Maureen are excellent hosts. The cottages are very nice, clean and private. The view spectacular. Close to the beach and shopping at the Dunes Studio Gallery was amazing. Unfortunately our time was limited. Would like to have tried the menu at the Dunes. Next time. We highly recommend York Bay Place.
