  • Description

    Description

    I live on a small patch of land that includes an orchard, garden, 2 acre field in buckwheat with laying hens. Close to nature trail, beautiful beach and Confederation Trail. Bikes on site, basketball nets for your use along with other recreational equipment. Lovely cabin in the orchard could be used as rough living space during the Summer. We are very Covid 19 sensitive to Health PEI regulations. Currently non-essential travelers are not permitted to visit PEI.
    RECOMMENDATION - call the PEI government Covid info line to discover if you can travel here 1 833 533-9333

    Accommodation

    Private, furnished bedroom with shared bath. Wifi, space for tent if you prefer the outdoors, bikes, There's a new shed in the orchard that needs some work. No smoking in house.
    IF there is still quarantine required then it may require staying in cabin in the orchard which would be rough but manageable. Photos of cabin are included. There's an outhouse and we run an electric cord for power. This is all a work in progress as we battle the pandemic. PEI has had few cases with no one hospitalized but we remain vigilant.
