The green countryside of PEI is one of the most picturesque areas of Canada. Small towns, ocean sunsets, rolling hills, and scenic vista's await. The Oceanfront cottage is located in the beautiful community of Point Prim, PEI, home of the Point Prim Lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse on Prince Edward Island. It is unique, as it is the only round brick lighthouse on PEI and one of three in Canada. It was designed by the architect, Isaac Smith, who also created Province House in Charlottetown, and was built in 1845, by Richard Walsh. Point Prim Lighthouse is 60 feet above the ground and 80 feet above sea level. It offers spectacular views of the Northumberland Strait. While staying at our Oceanside retreat, you are only 30 minutes from Charlottetown , and a close drive to many secrets.
Charlottetown is the city where Confederation started and has a very active culture community with theater, live music and many fine eating establishments ( some of our favorites listed later). The Confederation Center has the yearly show Anne of Green Gables as well as other concerts, and many small venues such as Trailside Music Hall feature local and international musicians. Many grocery stores are available to fill the fridge , as well as fresh seafood markets, and the Charlottetown Farmers Market.
But if you are looking for a true countryside general store, there is no place like Coopers General Store. I don't think there is anything that they don't have ! Only 5 minutes from the cottage and great for groceries , gas, and often fresh local produce and meat.
A short drive ( 25 minutes) is the North Shore and resort communities of Cavendish and North Rustico. Great white sand beaches and boardwalks to go for a stroll, and the world famous home of Anne of Green Gables. For the kids, Cavendish has some great amusement parks including Sandspit Amusement park, and the waterslides etc. at Shining Waters. And there is also the yearly Cavendish Beach Musical Festival , featuring some of the worlds best country music artists every summer.
The 20 minute drive to the south shore gets you to the red sand beaches and tide pools of the Argyle Shore .
