If you need an over-chlorinated pool or a flat screen TV when you go for a beach vacation; or if you need to be within walking distance of the amusement park or miniature golf or Cow's Ice Cream, then the Cavendish Beach Cottages probably aren't for you. But if your idea of paradise is a broad grassy lawn, sloping down to a semi-private beach 100 (barefoot) steps away, daily ocean swimming and boarding, the miles of National Park biking and running paths along the cliffs, and endless views of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, including sunrises AND sunsets without leaving your porch, then this is where you want to be. The cottages themselves are spotlessly clean and each one is amply equipped with everything you could need for housekeeping, including a gas grill and a pot for boiling lobster if you have the energy to do-it-yourself. The owners installed air-conditioning after one very warm summer and several summers ago, we arrived to discover that there was wifi (which hasn't only slightly spoiled the escape). Every year when we check out, we book our week-long stay for the next year. It's that kind of place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Cavendish Beach Cottages is a small 3.5 star property consisting of 10 two bedroom, 1 three bedroom and 2 one bedroom cottages located on the north shore of Prince Edward Island. It is unique in that it is one of only a handful of businesses that are inside the National Park only 100 mteters (300 feet) from the ocean front and a sandy beach. All cottages have a panoramic view from their windows and deck. These cottages are reserved early due to their location and quality, plus a strong base of return customers. However June and September are easier to book (also early July or late August) and can be beautiful months to see Prince Edward Island. ... more less
