Live the relaxing beach life in our ocean-front cottage on PEI's Northumberland Strait, which has the warmest ocean waters north of South Carolina!!
Our wonderful summer home is situated on 4 private acres directly on the water's edge with a beautiful red sand beach and warm, shallow waters, with spectacular long-range views of Egmont Bay, Cape Egmont lighthouse, Mont Carmel cathedral, the Confederation Bridge, and the distant shore of New Brunswick.
The cottage is newly renovated and is turn-key with all needed equipment provided… you only need to bring food, beverages, personal items, and consumables for a great time!
The beach is composed of very fine, soft, red sand, with virtually no rocks or pebbles after the shoreline. June-August the water temperature often is in the high 70’s (~24-25 C) meaning you can spend all day wading and swimming in the water without getting blue lips or chattering teeth. The shallow waters extend out for hundred and feet, at which point they are still only waist-deep, making the beach perfect (and safe) for young children.
There is an extensive lawn around the cottage for kids to run around and play games.
There are stairs leading down to the beach from the lawn for easy access by young and old alike.
Play on the beautiful sand beach directly in front of the cottage... there are stairs from the lawn down to the sand. Wade and swim in the warm, briny sea...water temperatures from June-August are often in the high 70’s (24-25 C). Build sand castles. Watch a beautiful, colorful sunset from your beach chair. At low tide, hunt for tasty clams. Watch the sea birds, and watch the tides come and go.
