Driftwood Country Cottages is a beautiful group of cottages right on the water near the North Cape of PEI. The scenery was outstanding, and the cottage itself was very pretty and roomy. We had a beautiful view of the water and the sunrise each morning and we were able to walk on the red sand beach as far as we wanted to go. There was a lovely TV and second sitting area on the second floor as well as the third bedroom with a whirlpool tub. The kitchen living area on the first floor was very roomy and nicely set up, as were the two other bedrooms and second bath.
It was a little difficult getting the owners to confirm the reservations in writing so when we arrived we were unsure about what to expect. We found the cottageseasily, but there was no obvious "office" and no one to greet us. We actually began knocking on cottage doors to try to find someone who would take care of us and show us which cottage was ours. We finally found a woman feeding her baby, who turned out to be the owner's daughter. She was able to access the log book and find our name and point us to the right cottage, but we were a little taken back by so little help. She said her mother would be by to check on us, but we were there two days and never saw a soul. We made a call and it was not returned and there were no instructions in the cottage for us to follow. We were also short on blankets because of the cold weather that had set in, but no one to help us. The other problem we encounter was lack of luggage racks or anything to put luggage on.
We thoroughly enjoyed the cottage and would return again. But staying there is not for the faint of heart. You have to be willing to be independent.
