Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Private Romantic Escape

**Private enough for skinny dipping for the more adventurous souls** The Steeple Cottage is a unique combination of history and luxury. Check out the aerial picture. The Steeple sits on one of the highest set of capes on the Island .....magnificent!! We are a much coveted 4.5 Star rating with Canada Select/ PEI Tourism.

The Steeple Cottage is located on the beautiful peninsula of Point Prim in eastern PEI. 'The Steeple' is close to the end of the peninsula and off the road by .7 km , sitting high on the capes over looking the Hillsborough and Orwell Bays. Direct access to miles of secluded shoreline..great for beachcombing! You'll have your own private beach nestled in the cliff on your way down to the shore.

Our capital city 'Charlottetown' is an easy, pleasant 30 minute drive. Lively downtown. Theatre, resturants and night life.

The Steeple has a couple kms of woodland trails for pleasant autumn walks.

About Mel

Hi, Welcome from us, Melody and Val. We hope you'll decide to stay at 'The Steeple'. Val and I are both from P.E.I and have grown up at opposite ends of the Island, therefore we have a working knowledge of this wonderful Island from one end to the other. We have been living in Pt. Prim for 20 years. When You stay at The Steeple you'll be on the same 25 acres as our house (you get to be closer to the shore!). Plenty of space and privacy for both of us, the woods create a 'living barrier', your privacy is as important as ours. We are close enough but far enough away. If you have questions or looking for suggestions on where to eat, sightsee etc or wonder when the best tides are to dig some clams or where you can buy some lobsters right from the wharf, we'll be glad to help and share whatever knowledge we have.

Incredible Oasis

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip in many years. We were not disappointed. The cottage is amazing and provides everything you need for a wonderful experience. The property is gorgeous and the owners very friendly and helpful-Mel and Val are amazing! Mel and Val have truly provided a once in a lifetime experience; they have not forgotten a thing! We highly recommend a vacation to this island paradise! The outside shower and bathtub was an amazing experience. The serenity, solitude and privacy were of utmost importance to us and the Steeple delivered! Well Done!

No ordinary place

  • 5 of 5

After reading all the reviews there really isn't much we can add. They simply state the truth about this place and the hosts. If you need a break from the rat race at home or some time to reconnect with the one you love, this truly is the place that can make that happen. Thank you Melody and Val for sharing your little piece of paradise.

We came to Prince Edward Island for our 40th wedding anniversary and we could not have found a more romantic place to stay! The steeple cottage was amazing with so many unbelievable details. We felt like we stepped out of the real world into a fairytale one. We loved watching the amazing sunsets and having campfires after the sun went down. We would walk the shoreline and did some kayaking and the red cliffs come alive with brilliant color at sunset. We would sit on the rooftop deck and the screened steeple room for all of our meals and just to relax and have a drink and look at the amazing view. We took time to explore the island and to go play on the wonderful beaches but we would always look forward to the time when we could be "home". We have done a lot of traveling and staying in VRBOs and B and Bs and there really has never been another place like this one! Thanks Mel and Val for being such friendly and caring hosts and for sharing this wonderful place with others. What a gift you are giving to us! We had a hard time leaving and are already dreaming of when we could come back. Mark and Sandy Hudson Wisconsin USA

Amazing Privilege

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the amazing privilege of spending a week at Steeple Cottage...and of meeting the wonderful and unbelievably creative hosts Melody and Val. It is a very beautiful and peaceful spot...many hours can be spent just enjoying the views and the silence except for the birds! Hearing how this beautiful property came to be is a definite must! It is totally comfortable...nothing has been forgotten to create a romantic ambience and comfort including the fireplace for a rainy day/night.There are many things to do (kayaking, biking),enjoying the private beach,clamming,...and nothing is too much trouble for Mel and Val to ensure your comfort! A place that will live in your heart and memory for a long time!

We celebrated our 20th anniversary here in 2015. Mel and Val have created a romantic getaway you will never forget. From the spectacular spot on the cliff to the awesome shower and bath. We loved sitting on the top of the roof sipping coffee every morning watching the lobster boats pick up their pods. Taking the bikes down to the lighthouse, and kayaking around the cliffs. The owners Mel and Val are two wonderful people who were great. They are defiantly "Island through and through" (Compliments of Anne and Gilbert musical. They were so helpful, they even offered to help us newbies to buying and cooking lobster outside the Steeple. Fellas if your looking for "the spot" to take your wife for a relaxing getaway this is it.

Amazing Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

I'm horribly late writing this review as my husband and I stayed here in July of 2013 for our honeymoon. Val and Mel were incredibly accommodating and thought of every single detail that would make our stay as pleasant as possible. We had such an amazing time on the island--we rode the bikes down to the Chowder House, kayaked in the bay, saw theatre in Charlottetown and enjoyed freshly lobster at least two or three times. We talk often about what a wonderful trip it was and we can't wait to return. Dear Mel and Val: thanks for everything. We have often said that we would like to come back on our five year anniversary but we so enjoyed our time that we hope to plan another trip much sooner.
