I hesitate to mention my very favourite cottages on PEI for fear that their popularity will explode and my spouse and I won't be able to get our usual week here every summer, but I've gotten so much fantastic information from TripAdvisor over the years, here goes:
York Bay Place's cottages are comfortable, reasonably priced, and quiet. They're well off the main road, set apart from each other for privacy and (the best part, to my thinking) they all have a gorgeous view over the back bay and dunes - one of the prettiest views on the Island. The owners, Bruce and Maureen, are lovely and very helpful. We like Brackley Beach because it is away from the craziness of Cavendish, only 15 minutes from Charlottetown, and right around the corner from the beaches of PEI National Park.
Downside? The trade-off for the view is that the cottages aren't really walking distance from the beach - they're about a 5 minute drive, or a slightly longer bike ride, but it is still easy to come back to the cottage for lunch and there's a bakery on the way. Because they're not in the park, you do have to pay for a park pass, which is good until noon the following day.
Everywhere on PEI is beautiful, but these cottages are special.
