We recently spent a week here and felt the photos didn't accurately reflect our experience. We found the room clean but very old, small and dark. Adequate for sleeping but no space for relaxing. Perhaps better suited to families with small young children who could enjoy the pool. We did find it an ideal location for meeting family and friends...

Our quaint little cottage was just what we needed during our stay in PEI. Hughie and Mickey were accommodating, super friendly, engaging, and became like family almost immediately. My dad and I shared a two bedroom fully equipped cottage and used it as a home base while we toured around the island. We spent four nights at the cottage and...

We are a family of six with kids aged 17-9. When we arrived I was a bit surprised to find that the cottages were located essentially on a farm. Not that this is a bad thing I guess my research and the general lack of affordable accomodation for 6 I did not investigate more. I also spoke with the Manager...

Our family of four (kids 11 and 8) stayed for a week and it was great. Hughie and his wife are great hosts and were very kind to us. We had no problem borrowing bikes and park passes, and the kids loved the horses, the pool, the games room, the bonfires, the play structure and the great big grassy areas....

We chose this place due to its good reviews on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. I do believe this place was probably an excellent place to stay with the past owners,but there are new owners now and things have changed.The caretaker Hughie is still there-he DOES care and he DOES try hard to make it a wonderful experience!I hope...

We had the log cabin. The tub was very mouldy and there were stains on the bed sheets. When we arrived, there was no one around so we had to wait for someone to check us in. When someone finally came, she did not speak English and couldn't answer our questions. The owner never came to welcome us. We didn't...

My family and I just got back from a week in PEI and we stayed at Island Life Cottages. It was a great experience! The cottages are clean, simple and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Our two sons, ages 6 and 5 loved the swimming pool, games room, playground, splash pad and most of all, feeding the...

A fabulous place for family, friends and cottagers! Loved our stay and the cottages are quaint, clean and convenient! There is lots to do and is conveniently located for other day trips and adventures. Hughie is knowledgeable, helpful, accommodating, and just an amazing person and Mickey is adorable and dedicated to nature and the animals. Lots for everyone to do,...

If you're looking for a family vacation or just a place to get away, I highly recommend Island Life Cottages on Prince Edward Island, Canada. The adult, kid and pet friendly cabins make for a most enjoyable stay. There's a heated pool, games room, playground, a huge grassy area for play and many tame animals that live on the property....

Conviniently located there is everything you need in these cottages. The cabins are very clean and cozy, the pool is heated and there is a campfire everynight. The owner respondes quickly to all of our requests (ex. gas for the BBQ, big pot to cook lobsters, clean towels, etc.). There are many things to do within a short distance, like...
