“Loved my stay, will be back”
Reviewed 9 August 2011

The hosts, Eleanor and Alvin, represent exactly what PEI is all about...they are warm, friendly people, just what you need when you travel to the island for a quiet getaway. I stayed four nights at the B&B, in a clean, comfy room, sleeping peacefully in a quality queen bed, a gentle breeze coming in from the sea, replacing my usual air conditioned setup. You have to experience Eleanor's breakfast, with those home made preserves of hers, to realize that THE BREAKFAST can be just as important than THE BED in a B&B. Staying there makes you want to move on the island and live THAT life. Maybe I'll just do that...

Room Tip: If you are staying at the B&B, get a room near the washroom.

We stayed at Parkview for five nights in June 2011... and we're already booked to go back next June! We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The owners are an extremely friendly and helpful couple, who were very good with our children. The husband even took our four year old son for a drive on the farm's gator/tractor, and let him climb up into their big farm combine so he could pretend to "drive it" and have pictures taken.

There are so many wonderful things about the place, I'll just list them:

1. Location - only minutes to Cavendish and all the attractions. Plus, it's a less than 5 minute walk to a private access beach.

2. Accomodations - we had a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage, and it was perfect, very clean. We had a beautiful view, there was a swingset, basketball net and volleyball net for the kids, a big yard for them to run around in, and picnic table and firepit - with firewood included! The cottage was extremely clean, and comfortable. I loved that they had a children's table and chairs set in the kitchen, plus some children's books and dvds included, plus board games for the family. It was fully equipped with dishes, laundry supplies etc... It was extremely child friendly.

3. The farm. Wow, the farm was excellent, just perfect for children! They make you feel right at home and welcome. We went over every day for milking, and while there my son got to feed the baby calves, play with the barn kittens, we got a tour of the farm, there were two calves born while we were there, it was just perfect.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be repeat customers!

Room Tip: Travel before July 1st for off-season rates - good discount!

The family and I book our Yearly PEI Vacation At Parkview home and cottages this week and I have to say, The cleanliness and Hospitality from Eleanor and Alvin as well as their son was way above our expectations. We stayed many years ago and were so glad we chose this place to go back to. The two bedroom cottage we stayed in was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed to make our stay feel like home. The kids loved it as well as there was lots to see and do at the farm with many little kittens around to put a smile on our little girls face( 6 years old). We were so pleased again that we are ready to pre book our stay for another week in July 2012. Thanks so much to the Macneill Family for making our vacation a pleasant one..

We chose Parkview as we were travelling in September (many Cavendish attractions were closed for the season) and we wanted to ensure our kids (9 & 7) would be kept occupied. The great reviews of the property were spot on and the kids were thrilled with the farm atmosphere - from seeing the cows milked, feeding new calves milk from a bucket, and especially playing with this summer's crop of barn kittens.

Very picturesque, great North Shore view from the cottages, excellent beach, and close to everything 'Green Gables'. We found this a great midpoint to explore the island after spending the first half of the week in Charlottetown. North Cape and East Point are both easy and pretty drives from here.

Cottages are fine, clean and simple with everything you need, including cable tv if the weather turns rainy.

Everyone on the farm is very friendly, from the farmhands to the hosts Eleanor and Alvin. But then again, just about everyone you meet in PEI is friendly - you feel welcome pretty much everywhere you go.

A great spot that we would recommend to families with young children.

We stayed at the Tourist Home for 1 night, the room was pretty and very clean, and Eleanor is also a friendly host. The dog "Benji" is adorable and we would love to come back!!

Staying in the farmhouse at Parkview is like a weekend at grandpa and grandma's. Very homey, down to earth dairy farmers who make all their guests feel welcome. As a converted farmhouse the rooms are small and the bath is shared but its the greatest location one can imagine and its an excellent value. And of course cottages are available for families and longer stay guests. .

I booked this months in advance because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. It was the best place EVER. We stayed in a two-bedroom cottage which an awesome view of the water, the cows and the sunset! The place was clean, beds were comfy and the hosts were the sweetest couple ever. We played with Benji the old dog and the new litter of kittens. We fed grass to the cows in the backyard and it was like heaven. It's definitely close to all the Cavendish hoopla but just on the end of the road so you have the quiet too. The cottages don't have internet, but you can either use the wireless in the driveway of the farm or you can go in and the hosts will happily let you use their computer.
One of the absolute best places we stayed in our three week tour of the maritimes!
