Situated in the heart of PEI, along its north and south shores, Queens County cottage rentals are scattered among red sandstone cliffs, grassy dunes, and sandy beaches.
Explore the vibrant seaside capital city of Charlottetown, the economic and cultural hub of the island. Hike and bike along the Confederation Trail, which weaves its way through many of the county’s towns. In the south, stroll, swim, sunbathe, and build sandcastles on the sandy beaches of the eastern Northumberland Straight, with the warmest waters north of the Carolinas. In the north, at Prince Edward Island National Park, bike, hike, horseback ride, and bird watch in the summer, and cross-country ski and snowshoe come winter. The park’s lakes, in addition to the ocean, provide opportunities for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and swimming. Play golf at the area’s championship courses, which rank among the best in the country.
PEI National Park also features unique cultural resources, notably Green Gables Heritage Place, part of L.M. Montgomery’s Cavendish National History Site, and Dalvay-by-the-Sea National Historic Site. Feast on fresh sea fare at restaurants and pubs in many of the county’s towns, which often host lively nightly ceilidhs.
