Blue Spruces Cottages pivotal to our enjoyment of beautiful PEI. All about the superb location and view. Very hard to find. Our Sat. Nav. only found by co-ordinates, not from typing in Hampton Beach, or street and highway directions. Better to put in GPS nearby town of Crapaud than Hampton Beach also. Access off highway is along a dirt road. Confederation Bridge is 15 minutes drive from Blue Spruces so our (very sad) departure from PEI was by bridge, however we enjoyed the Ferry trip over and subsequent drive through Charlottetown etc., The sunset silouhette of the bridge from the cabin deck was a photographic standout.
This spacious property consists of 2 and 3 bedroom cabins dotted about, most fronting the bluff overlooking the water. A few iron stairwells scattered about descend to the red sandy beach and the sea. Immediately we finally arrived at the property my husband leapt out of the car and announced we had to extend our stay. That before we had been inside our cabin. Rustic and glamping come to mind but whilst not the Ritz the cabin was perfect for the location. Extremely good value for money. We loved it. If I was a Canadian I would want to buy it. We had a two bedroom cabin, bedrooms mirror image with double bed, one side table, and half room width each a built-in wardrobe and drawers section with space above and wall mirror. A galley kitchen, basic but had proper stove/oven, microwave, kitchen benches with sink and full size domestic frig. Abundant supply of pots, pans, crockery, glasses, cutlery, coffee maker and hob top kettle. Living, dining area had settee bed, Papa-san rocker, table and 6 cairs and wall mounted large flat screen TV. The bathroom was very spartan in our cabin but I think 3 bedroom cabins have a modern bathroom and bath. We had very tiny curtained shower, pedestal sink, only storage a tiny mirrored medicine cupboard above and loo. A built-in linen cupboard outside bedrooms. Immaculately clean. Good lighting at night. Not air-conditioned. Might be hot in July, August even with the sea breezes. At very end of August we were fine. The deck with barbeque and adirondack rocker and chair perfect place to enjoy the stunning views. Could have spent every waking moment on the deck but PEI too inviting so after returning to the cabin we stayed out on deck every evening till very late when the dark finally came. A large camping ground timber table and fixed benches is on the lawn in front of each cabin. Other guests had a bonfire one night, looked lovely against the night sea. This property is beguiling. Angie the Managaress was a lovely, helpful young lady. A cabin at rear of the property has modern washing machine and dryer. They were very easy to use and $2 each in honesty box. Victoria-by- the-Sea interesting little seaside town nearby with artesans cottages. Cape Bear Lighthouse a must for history buffs as the first place to hear the Titanic distress call. A very good display. We went to all the wonderful Anne of Green Gables places. Decades ago when I read the story I dreamed of going to PEI, so glad I actually did. It is a very beautiful, unique place with an abundance of lovely beaches and interesting history and so much to do. Blue Spruce Cottages a perfect fit.
