Property Description

Situated behind a grove of birch trees, this custom-built, ten-year old, two-story, cedar-shake cottage overlooks a three mile wide bay -- perfect for sailing or canoeing.

The well-groomed, two acre lawn in front of the house is surrounded by birch, pine and spruce on all sides - ideal for kids and dogs. The house interior has been recently renovated with new floors and replacement windows. There is now a new full bath on both floors, and an all new modern kitchen with up-to-date appliances including dishwasher, The washer and dryer are in the basement and there is cable TV with VCR/DVD player in the living room. Upstairs there are three bedrooms plus full bath: a good sized master bedroom with queen sized bed and a full view of the water, a guest room with a double bed and, a child's bed room with a single bed.

Bedroom Description

There are new hardwood floors on the second floor. The Master bedroom has a Queen size bed.

The second bedroom has a double bed. The small bedroom has a single bed. All rooms are decorated with country antiques from PEI and paintings by local artists. The bathrooms have new fixtures and ceramic tile floors.

Location Description

The countryside is green and rolling with meadows and forests interspersed between livestock pasture and potato fields. From the 72' x 12' deck which surrounds the house you will experience fabulous sunsets descending over the Montague River which is visible from Clements Cove to Georgetown. The Lower Montague Wharf is part of the view as are the lobster boats moored next to the occasional yacht.

Visitors can swim on the beach 100 yards down from the house, but there are much better beach options within a 5 to 25 mile range. PEI accurately claims The Gulf Stream gives us the warmest waters north of Florida.

Local seafood is excellent, abundant and a bargain. The lobsters, mussels, clams, haddock, halibut, cod and other species are fresh daily at the local supermarket or from roadside trucks in Montague.

The town of Montague is three miles away and has restaurants, super markets, hardware stores, and fitness club with indoor pool and water slide ($35 weekly family memberships). Across the Bay there is the Brudenell Resort (12 miles by car) with 36 holes of championship golf, tennis, horseback riding , windsurfing, and even lawn bowling.

Travel by car is pleasant, but flying to Halifax and renting a car is an option worth thinking about. The trip from the airport to the Wood Islands ferry is about two hours; the boat trip is an hour, and then you have a 25 mile drive to Lower Montague.

Restorative beauty

My family (my wife and I and our two boys, 6 and 3) stayed here for a week in late July and it was an absolutely sublime experience. The local beaches are less crowded than other parts of the island, and the cycling and kayaking opportunities are resplendent. We found a local farmer's wife to mind our children and went for a paddle to an abandoned... Read More

Comfort and location are everything

I loved staying here. It is so close to all the major sites on the island. You can hit all of the most beautiful sites of the entire east side of the island within an hour. The house with its wrap-around deck and gas grill allows for home-cooked lobster meals with a view. I loved the Island and the house was perfect.

An amazing stay. Felt like we were at home.

We stayed for a week and it was like the comfort of home. Anything we could possibly need were included. Netflix and wi-fi as well. Owner called to make sure we had everything we needed. I hope anyone going to this area picks this house because you won't get a better experience anywhere else.

Great family stay

The house is really lovely and well conceived, has a GREAT choice of page-turner books to read (don't bring your summer library with you!), and the garden is a wonder! We (2 adults, 3 children from 5 to 11) all had a great time, especially playing badminton barefoot... We also had some great glimpses at the stars and could see the Milky Way partic... Read More

Private, Spacious, Beautiful View.

We have booked this cottage for 4 years running. We have always found it perfectly clean and well prepared for our arrival. Lee and Remie Sokolov.
