Proved to be an outstanding location for the two of us and our 2 year old. The property is well maintained, the staff and owner ver kind and helpful. The location was perfect. Would stay here again if returning to PEI! A great choice for anyone traveling to the area.

The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Arnold the owner knows EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING you could possibly want to know about the area and definitely doesn`t mind sharing. We stayed in a suite around back each time we went (requested the same room the second visit) and it was very spacious with a sitting area. The motel offers passes to the Provincial Parks (which I believe are free if you stay more then two nights). They also have a pool and BBQ areas. Located about 10 minute drive from Cavendish, it`s quiet and very peaceful. My only complaint was when I travelled there last summer the room had a bit of a musty - freshly painted smell that gave my husband and I both terrible headaches even when we opened the windows..however, I still strongly recommend.

We stayed here to trace my ancestors and escape the Georgia heat. We loved this place. Extremely clean rooms at a very reasonable price. All rooms have beautiful view of the bay. Although no exercise room, they do have a playground for younger children, a well kept heated pool and we all enjoyed the hiking trails close by. Excellent simple continental breakfast where you can sit outside, admire the green lawn, playground, trees, bay, and talk to the owner Arnold Smith. He is a native and has a wealth of information about where to eat (try the Lobster Supper at St. Ann's), hike, tour and was a tremendous help on where I should go to trace my PEI ancestors. Arnold, his sister and staff are the secret to success here. They will make sure you will want to come back year after year to Bay View.

We had encountered a horrible experienced with a motel in Cavendish and needed a place to stay. Bay Vista were more than accommodating, were reasonably priced and included a continental breakfast with the room.

This is lovely family run motel. The location is great. Scenic place. The service was very friendly and the staff gave us great suggestions on what to do etc. This place is within a short drive from the Cavenidh beach and the local attractions. It is very close to the Cavendish boardwalk which has several restaurants & shops. We arrived very late the first night and found a Subway there which was open until midnight. The simple breakfast they provide at the motel is great. We all sat on the bench outside every morning for breakfast. The kids have a lovely little play area on the lush green lawns. They also have a nice heated pool which my kids really enjoyed. The washer and dryer in the motel came in really handy. Our AC broke late on the last day and Arnold provided us with two fans to make us feel comfortable. Highly recommend this place !!

We stayed at the cottage for the third time this August. The cottage is located just to the west of Cavendish in Stanley Bridge, but close to all the family friendly attractions in Cavendish. The cottage amenities include three bedrooms, fully outfitted kitchen, laundry, large yard with swings. We also had access to the motel pool and grounds.

Although not cheap, it is the perfect place for a family stay in PEI.
