“Home away from home”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

This year our family along with my in-laws decided to go on vactaion to PEI. We booked side by side cottages at Orchard View and before leaving we've booked again for next year. The cottages were spacious and very clean and contained everything we might have needed. My mother uses a walker and wheelchair and accessibility is always a factor in our decisions. The ramps on the cottages were ideal as well as the nice open layouts inside. My daughter had a great time playing with all the kids and we all felt really welcome.

Room Tip: For families with mobility requirements, some cottages have combination cushion flooring and carpet...

Having visited PEI for over 40 years and having stayed at many locations along this shore, I am so happy we chose Orchard View this year. The cottages are spotless and well laid out. They are staggered so that each large deck has total privacy from the others. The cottages are 35 feet apart adding to the feeling of tranquility. The bedrooms have two windows on different walls that allowed the wonderful PEI air to drift through for a comfortable sleep. The beds are truly the most comfortable I have ever slept in and it was so nice to have beautiful coloured sheets and comforters on the beds instead of the standard white. There certainly was an abundance of towels which was such a pleasant surprise as most places give you minimal. Barbecues are on each deck along with 4 lawn chairs and a picnic table. Firepits are at each cottage which was enjoyable. You can sit on your private large deck and the view of the ocean is amazing as well as the fields of crops such as soy beans and barley. The cottages are well stocked with everything needed. The location is great, close to all the fun. The large lawns in front of the units is a great, safe place for little ones to play on; no worries about traffic. The playground and sandbox was a nice place for them to enjoy. Laundry facilities are on site and with no specific hours which was great. The entire Toombs family including Ron, Kim, and Darren made us feel as if we were at home. The room attendant, Natalie, was there each day with a wonderful smile. I can't say enough about this location. We have booked 3 units for next year for various family members. Stay at Orchard View and you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: If you have a wheelchair, walker or even baby strollers, there are units available with large, well...

Our first time staying in a cottage at PEI. We had not reserved a cottage ahead of time since it was not the full tourist season yet . We thought we would just look around . After checking out several we just happened onto "Orchard View Cottages". We were so glad we did and had not reserved any other. The Toombs family are wonderful people and certainly were the perfect hosts. We spent 4 nights there and loved every minute of our stay . Our cottage had more amenities and the price better than some of the others.....better than we expected to find . It is the perfect location for visiting" Anne of Green Gables" . We also had a free pass for the parks ....thanks to our hosts .We loved it !!!! Would definitely book this place next time. .

Room Tip: The big cottage is perfect for a big family .

Stayed here during the Cavendish Beach Musica Festival, the cottage had one bedroom with 2 double beds, another bedroom with a double bed and a fold out couch. The living room was big, the interior very clean and well stocked and the bathroom had a jet tub. We loved it here. Each cottage has a bbq and a firepit with free firewood and a pass to the provincial park. It was a very enjoyable stay and we would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Beautiful spot, clean, very spacious

My friend and I recently vacationed in Canada. We had not planned to go to Prince Edward Island, but did so after meeting people along the way who encouraged us to go there. After crossing the Confederation Bridge we stopped at the welcome center. There we met Ron Toombs who just happened to be there at that particular time. We had no reservations for the evening so he told us about his place. We didn't commit to staying there as we didn't know where our travels would lead us. As we traveled to the general area of North Rustico we found the house that was written about in Anne of Green Gables. We traveled a little further and found the Orchard View Cottages. We turned in the driveway and right up to the cottage that Ron told us would be available for us. What a surprise!!! The cottage was quite more than we expected. Had it not been cloudy we could have watched the sun rise over the ocean. If you're traveling in the North Rustico area I highly recommend that you contact Heather and Ron Toombs and stay in one of their cottages. Most are two bedrooms, while the other is a four bedroom. We were there in the off season and the rate that we paid was comparable to the motel rates we paid on all previous nights, which was under $100. The kitchen was well equipped and our unit had a washer and dryer. The owners were very friendly and made us feel right at home. If you choose Orchard View Cottages, you will not leave disappointed.

We drove in, charmed by the large waterview at the end of the fields.
Delighted by the cleanliness and design of a modern cottage - a 2-bedroom, with jetted tub bonus. All the rooms were in great condition and all the supplies very good.
Though it doesn't look like it in the photos of the row of cottages, you don't feel crowded because of the staggered placement of the cottages.
We enjoyed all aspects of our trwo night stay in off-season. Will return.
A good find!

  • Liked — The cleanliness of the cottage and the friendliness of the owner. The setting.
  • Disliked — Confusion about where to check in.
