Easily one of the most pleasant travel experiences and I've had a few! This is my second visit and certainly not my last. The positive reviews are well deserved as Brenda goes out of her way to ensure great customer service....thanks for the personalized note and homemade jam Brenda! She even thought of providing an oyster shucker (much to our relief with a bag full of fresh oysters). Great cottage and an even greater host.

“Awesome Retreat Cottage”
Reviewed October 3, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed in the Spruce Cottage for 9 days and fell in love with it! We were on week 5 of travel and arrived here tired of the tourist loop. This cottage and PEI in the fall was our retreat. We felt like we were at home. This cottage is private, quiet, roomy but cozy and pet friendly! Our dogs loved the yard. We could let them run around the yard while we were outside with them. Loved to sleep with the window open and hear the ocean. We are prairie folks and this is something new for us. The cottage is so close to the PEI National Park. Just walk out the yard and down the road and there is the ocean and lovely walking/cycling paths. We loved it so much we asked if we could stay another couple days. Brenda (cabin owner) is a gem. She had muffins on the table and a handwritten welcome note when we arrived. She answered emails promptly and also sent us emails giving us travel tidbits which we so appreciated!! Thank-you Brenda for making our 9 days here feel just like home.

“Comfortable - home from home”
Reviewed September 27, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I stayed here with my daughter and son in law. Sadly only for a couple of nights but it is the most lovely place to stay. It felt like home and Brenda was lovely. I wish we had been able to stay longer but our trip involved Nova Scotia, PEI and New Brunswick so there was no choice but to travel. I would say if you are looking for some rest and relaxation you could do no better. Its a lovely place to stay with a lovely beach just a few minutes away.

“Perfect, peaceful, and relaxing.”
Reviewed September 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Brenda and Larry are wonderful hosts, very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the Pine cottage. It is beautiful, and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The beach is a short walk away, and there are bike paths to pretty much everywhere. The area was not too crowded and quite peaceful, and the location of the cottage itself affords you a decent amount of privacy. Our week long vacation was a very much needed retreat. Would definitely stay there again.

“Short walk to the beach”

Great A-frame cabin, very peaceful location, private, treed. Fireplace was very nice on a rainy day. We walked to the beach several times for beautiful walks along the ocean and enjoyed the golf course nearby. Really appreciated the amenities of the Pine cottage. The owners were super nice and helpful. Loved our week.

I arrived at Pine Cottage with my four year old son and Mother on a Saturday evening. We were exhausted and cranky after flying all day.

The cottage was a wonderful balm for us weary (!) travellers.
The main floor where the kitchen, dining area and living room are, is open and inviting. Everything we needed for cooking and BBQING was right there. The bathroom is clean and bright, with plenty of towels and cloths handy in the linen closet. The 3 bedrooms were decorated in the classic cottage style and the beds were very comfortable. The upstairs loft room has a skylight and small balcony off of it, which was lovely. The ceiling fans are great for circulating that lovely sea air (something we Calgarians loved!). There is a screened in sunroom that my son took over and proceeded to make his own with massive Lego / Duplo constructions. The deck is large and was perfect to relax on.
There is a washer inside and a small shed nearby with two dryers in it, in case you don't want to hang clothes on the line. There is a collection of movies (Including, of course, Anne of Green Gables), and a bin of beach toys. My son was in heaven!
The beach, which is a five minute walk away, is gorgeous. Rain or shine we were there 4-5 hours a day.

If you are looking for a beautiful, relaxing break - this is the place to go. The owners, Brenda and Larry, are so conscientious and caring. They really go the extra mile to make your vacation a memory of a lifetime. I only wish we could have stayed longer.

Fantastic cottage, fantastic location and amazing owners.

Check this place out!

“Beautiful Retreat”
Reviewed November 2, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I really appreciated my communication with the owners of the cottage. They were always prompt at getting back to me and providing me with all kinds of information. Their reservation set up made things really easy. Even upon arriving at the cottage, I received an email from them checking to see if everything was ok. I was able to ask any other questions that I had. It was like having them right there. Upon arriving to the Spruce cottage (1 of 2 of their cottage), it was surrounded by a white picket fence. It felt like we were arriving home. The landscape was beautiful, many special little touches. The inside of the cottage was spacious, clean and beautiful. I loved the smell of the wood. My favourite place was the living room with the many seating set up, fireplace, tv, many windows. We went for the long weekend in October so it was a bit too chilly to enjoy the huge screened in sunroom though. This place is definitely big enough for 6 people to hang out comfortably. It had everything you would have at home and more. The kitchen area was big too. I also enjoyed the many walks that we were able to do from the cottage. Just across the street from their lane, you could walk on this boardwalk type area. It is like a paved path that goes all around for many km. We easily took 40 min walks around and enjoyed he view of the water. We even walked up to the golf course. It was also a 7 min walk to the beach. Really easy to get there and beautiful area. I would definitely stay there again. We love traveling in the spring and fall since it is quieter. This vacation stay was one of my favourites. I felt like we were on a family retreat. Very quiet and peaceful. The bonus was all the great walking areas from the cottage. We all loved it including our dog.
