Great cottage and great location. This was our first trip to PEI and we wanted a cottage that was easy to get to, comfortable and near the places we wanted to see. A short drive to Summerside, Green Gables and Charlottetown. We loved that we were so close to the beach and close to all the places we wanted to be. Cottage was clean and well-kept. Even with a heatwave the cottage stayed cool and the breeze at night was awesome. Thanks for a great stay. Highly recommend this cottage.
We really enjoyed the cottage and the location. The beach is quite close to the cottage and was a lot of fun at low tide. The cottage is nice and the kids loved the loft. The location is pretty central and not far after you get off the confederation bridge, so it makes it easy to visit multiple parts of PEI. My only complaint was mosquito's. Even though we were far from a forest or anything like that we still got attacked by mosquito's when heading out of the cottage to the beach. But I guess theirs nothing you can do about that. But it would have been nice to sit out on the spacious deck, but with the bug problem we couldn't.
Beautifully spot - walked to the beach every day 2 min at most. Safe swimming on South Shore - gradual beach entry. Collected shells. Cottage was clean. Our kids 16, 15 and 11 loved it.
Very close to summerside for groceries.
Great ice cream place 8 minute drive.
Highly recommend. Home away from home!
My wife and I had our long anticipated tour of the East Coast during September and one of the places that we wanted to explore was PEI. We knew that if we stayed in Charlottetown that much of our time would be spent in that area and so, on a friend's advice, we chose to rent a cottage near Summerside and make day trips out across the island.
After extensive reviews of rentals, mostly commenting about summer stays, we settled on this property located a few minutes outside of Summerside. on Chelton Beach. The cottage is nestled amongst a group of summer residences with adequate space around them. The address showed up on our GPS but the actual "lane" is blocked off and so you have to enter the complex through an adjacent road and then make your way to Centre Lane.
The cottage was spotless, well equipped and the people who look after it were there to greet us and show us around. We quickly settled in, rearranging the furniture to suit just the 2 of us and proceeded to have a lovely week. After Labor day you will find that most of the East Coast is populated with retired couples and if you fit into that category, this place would be an excellent choice for a "home base". We made day trips to Charlottetown, Thumder Cove, New London , New Glasgow, Kensington and we toured the old section of Summerside and made use of the extensive Boardwalk.
The beach, a 3 minute walk, was great for walking and the changing weather made each day a different experience. I can see how families with young kids would love the seashore especially with the tide out. Lots of area to play and the water temp was very comfortable.
So... couples or families this cottage works and the in and out experience was seamless. A great place to stay.

Cottage was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. The location is a very short walk to Chelton beach, which is fantastic, particularly at low tide, for young children. Both the owner and caretakers are very responsive to issues. The outdoor shower was a good bonus.
