We stayed here for 4 nights for a family reunion. We were very leery about booking given some of the reviews from the last but one of our cousins did some scouting and assured us that there had been upgrades. The staff were great about accommodating our large crowd and we got a decent rate for our stay. When we arrived I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, occasionally there is an ‘aroma’ from the dairy farm next to us but it wasn’t often. The view from our executive cottage was beautiful and the location was great for getting to many tourist destinations around the island. We loved the large open grounds where we could gather and play games with the whole family, the pool was clean and there is a nice little play area for kids. The grounds are kept very well which helped control the mosquitos at night as well. The room was spacious for the 7 of us who stayed here and we were relieved that the units had air conditioners given we were in a big heat wave. The wood paneling inside was lovely. What kept this review from being a 4 star? While there clearly have been some upgrades, more will be needed to improve the overall rating and experience. Our loveseat was broken in the middle and being held together by Velcro, the beds were apparently replaced last year but ours had a complete indent on either side so either it wasn’t replaced or it was a poor quality mattress and needs to be replaced again. The drawers in the kitchen and bathrooms were not on tracks so they could fall at any moment. The decor is very dated and blackout curtains in the bedrooms would be nice. But for the price and location this was a lovely place to stay. The staff were also very helpful.
Horrible, 4 of us stayed in #12. Bunk bed was so bad we thought it would collapse (spoke to the owner, said she knew the were loose but didn't think they would fall). All beds were hard as a rock. Not enough seating for 4 in the living room, chair was rickety. No grab bars in the shower. Bathroom curtains do not provide privacy. Right next to a cow pasture and the smell was horrible Spoke to management after first night, nothing she could do. Was told there was a continental breakfast, went down a little after 7 am to find it locked, went back to tell them we would be checking out early, when asked why, I told of all the problems in the cottage. Have since spoke to the owner and she doesn't think there is a problem with anything. Would have left after the first night if we hadn't already paid for 3 nights, left after the 2nd night.
We had stayed here 12 years ago and it wasnt bad. Last week we checked in for what we thought was a 7 night stay. We walked into our 2 bedroom standard cottage and wished we could have turned around and walked out. Where do I start? The first thing that hit us was the funky smell, it was disgusting! The wallpaper was peeling from the wall, the couch was covered in crumbs, the chair was shaggy and dirty, the beds were hard a rock and low to the ground (only a matress on a board, no box spring or proper bed frame) the sheets were old, scratchy and covered in past stains. Tiny little scratchy stained towels. There was one old small dented dirty dresser to put clothing in the masterbedroom. Almost all The plugs did not work, our chargers kept falling out. I could go on and on. We stayed only one long sleepless night and left the next day.The whole place was gross, go somewhere else!
We stopped in PEI for the night in July on our East Coast road trip and were lucky enough to snag a cancellation here. The grounds were amazing and family friendly, our kids enjoyed time in the pool as well as the hot tub. Picnic tables were scattered about and each cottage had a deck. The inside was clean and tidy and each cottage had AC.
We got a 2 bedroom cabin with a kitchenette and washroom with a small living area. The one bedroom had bunks and a single, and the other had a queen. It perfectly fit our gang of 4 kids and 2 adults!
We really enjoyed the accommodations and are looking forward to coming back next year!
I recently stayed at these cottages and was less than impressed. I realize that these cottages are older and people may not want to invest in a large renovation, however a good cleaning would go a long way. The cottage was a small 2 bedroom (which is what I was looking for) and the location was good...however when I entered the cottage I was overwhelmed with a damp, wet animal smell...despite the fact that they were in the process of "cleaning" our rooms. The staff seemed very friendly, but I could not look past the not so little things. There were dead flies left on the walls and windows...and the living room area furniture was old, stained and smelled sour...at the rate of $150+ I was sick after seeing our little vacation cottage. If the cancellation rate was not so outrageous, we could have walked away and closed the door...I would never recommend this place to a friend or family member...there are lots of other places on the island to stay at...and this is not one of them...not a good bang for your buck....
