Cottage
River Meadow Cottage is on the low banks of the Grand River and is tucked into a corner lot where you can stay in your bathing suit all day and basks in the sun from sunrise to sunset. The tide is out most of the day and young children can splash around in bathtub warm water chasing minnows and hermit crabs and never get deeper than up to their knees. The sun porch is a window-enclosed room perched on the riverbank and offers a lovely place to read, snooze or dine while watching the sunset. Under giant birches, the motor home part of the cottage has been built out to add on a bedroom, a TV room and a sun room. The motor home kitchen is fully stocked and has an electric stove, dishwasher, fridge, a dinette booth, a day bed and a half bath. This camp cottage is not fancy (no gra... River Meadow Cottage is on the low banks of the Grand River and is tucked into a corner lot where you can stay in your bathing suit all day and basks in the sun from sunrise to sunset. The tide is out most of the day and young children can splash around in bathtub warm water chasing minnows and hermit crabs and never get deeper than up to their knees. The sun porch is a window-enclosed room perched on the riverbank and offers a lovely place to read, snooze or dine while watching the sunset. Under giant birches, the motor home part of the cottage has been built out to add on a bedroom, a TV room and a sun room. The motor home kitchen is fully stocked and has an electric stove, dishwasher, fridge, a dinette booth, a day bed and a half bath. This camp cottage is not fancy (no granite or steel for those who need modern and sleek), but it has everything a young family or a group of friends need for comfort and convenience with the added pleasure of being immersed in the sights and sounds of nature. Sleeping areas: 1. Bedroom with a queen size bed. 2. The front room has a couch and chair for TV watching and a single bed for sleeping. 3. There is another single bed up in the motor home and a sliding door to close this area off at night. 4. Behind the cottage, there is a small cabin with a washer and dryer and a full bath with a shower, sink, and toilet. There is a set of bunk beds in this small cabin where teens or young adults could sleep. This cottage may not offer the space for multi-generational families or unlimited Wifi and privacy need for most teenagers. Because there is no landline phone service in this area, we cannot purchase an unlimited WiFi package. However, there is Satellite TV service and DVD player. Nature lovers will appreciate the song birds, shore birds, hawks and eagles. Everyone will enjoy exploring the beach whether it is shelling, swimming, building sandcastles or taking long walks and if you don't want to walk far, take out the canoes and explore the shoreline. River Meadow Cottage offers you the closeness to nature found in a campground but it also has the comfort, convenience and privacy of a cottage.

Buggy, Unusable Beach, Could be Cleaner
The woman who owns the cottage appears to be genuinely kind and well meaning, however the pictures are very misleading. The beach is completely covered in a foot of seaweed...no sand whatsoever. The camper part of the cottage is actually an old bus that is barely holding up. The ceiling is so low in the kitchen (bus area) that anyone over 5'10" will not be able to stand up fully. The ceiling going from the kitchen bus to the washroom and sunroom is no more then 4' high. Everyone bumped their head several times moving from one area to the next. It was incredibly frustrating and painful. Many of the windows are broken, seals are rotten giving little protection from bugs...ants, spiders, house flies, mosquitoes... However, it was in a beautiful location, on the wat

Hello there: I am so sorry you and your guests had such a difficult time at the cottage. Our family was not fortunate enough to have any ‘tallness’ to limit our movement in the bus, but now I stress that anyone over 5’10” who wishes to rent this cottage will be vertically challenged when they are in the bus area. I have put in all new screens, replaced problem windows and added more weather-stripping to the front door. As for the seaweed, a big storm takes it in, and the next big storm takes it out. We have built a boardwalk out the water so that one does not have to walk on the seaweed. I will be taking a scientific approach to insect control for the upcoming year of 2021. Because of your fair and accurate review, I have had no booking or inquiries from this site in 2020 so I thought that I would add some guest reviews from other travel sites and their 2019 reviews. There were not many guests at the cottage in 2020 because of Covid-19. Relaxing visit 4/5 stars Stayed Jul. 2019 Elizabeth M. We had a really relaxing stay and loved watching the sunsets. Tracy's Review Aug. 4–Aug. 6, 2019 River Meadow Cottage, Beach, 10 Km to Summerside The cottage is very rustic, but it has all the necessities, including a full kitchen with dishwasher, washer and dryer, shower, and two toilets. Suzanne greets you personally and gives local tips for things to do. It is about 45 minutes from Cabot Beach, Thunder Cove Beach, and the Anne of Green Gables museum. Absolutely stunning property and uniquely charming cottage 5/5 stars Stayed Aug. 2019 Stephanie A. We had such a lovely stay at Suzanne's property. We couldn't believe the view when we pulled up to park outside the cottage. It truly feels like a little piece of paradise. Breathtaking sunsets over the inlet, incredible private beach, and completely ours alone for the 2 days we were there. The cottage/transformed camper bus is uniquely adorable and was so well renovated with tons of charm. It worked well for our family of 5 (3 kids in tow - 5 yr old, 3 yr old and 1 yr old.) and our kids had the most incredible time. One note - the bus part of the cottage has fairly low ceilings, so it worked well for us because we're rather short, but wouldn't be as comfortable for taller individuals. Also, there's a bunky on the property, with a bunk bed, another bathroom and a shower, but we just used the main cottage. Lovely stay and one we'd definitely come back to for the views/privacy alone! Thanks Suzanne! Rustic but quaint camping experience 4/5 stars Stayed Jun. 2019 Robert B. A rustic camping experience in an old school bus with a quaint addition; nuzzled in a beautiful location with a semi-private beach. Children loved the experience and the view was fabulous.
