Guestbook comments from the owner

We were very comfortable during our stay last September. You provided all the necessary ingredients for a relaxed, beautiful vacation including a nice view of the water. We lacked nothing. The furnishings were comfortable. Everything spotless. You might advise your incoming guests that the house is set back from the road. In the dark we passed it several times. But the setback ensures privacy! We'll try you again if and when we return to PEI. Thanks for everything!

Quiet and Relaxing Cottage in Small Village

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for the perfect spot to get away from hustle and bustle this is it. Nicely appointed cottage had everything we needed and more and was wonderfully clean and comfortable. My husband and and I and our dog stayed here at the end of August and enjoyed daily walks into the village or on the Confederation Trail just around the corner. Bathrooms were lovely, the bed was comfortable and the laundry room was a welcome addition. Even better, the high speed internet was actually fast and functioning (unlike some other locations we'd stayed at before!). The large deck was a great place to enjoy a morning coffee. This is our third rental on the Island in as many summers and has been by far the nicest. The short drive to Beach Point to walk on the beach is worth it. Highly recommend staying here.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Harbour House. We have rented many houses over the past 10 years and this house is by far the best. The kitchen is very well equipped and the living room and bedrooms are very clean and comfortable. It is located in a quiet village not far from the ocean. Diana the owner is very helpful and friendly. We highly recommend it.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Diana and Stephen's cottage offers a serene and relaxing view of Murray Harbour. It is well equipped with everything you need and is very clean and comfortable. The owners are attentive and provided great service. Beaches and lighthouses close by to explore and there is a restaurant within walking distance of the cottage. I would certainly consider booking this property again.

Nice Vacation Home for a Family

  • 4 of 5

Just spent a week here with my dad, 2 daughters, son-in-law and granddaughter. House was clean and stocked with essentials so we didn't have to rush out to the store as soon as we got there. Beautiful location a short walk away from Murray Harbor where there is a good restaurant and small grocery store. Surrounding area very picturesque with beaches a short drive away. Owners are very friendly and responsive. House is equipped with anything you might need including wifi, cable, and phone. Decorations in house show thoughtfulness and creativity. The 2 year old loved the antique stove in the living room used to store games as did my 85 year old dad reminiscing of his mother using such a stove in the past . We would have enjoyed the wrap around deck more had there not been so many viscous mosquitoes that had no resistance to every bug spray we could try. The PEI natives told us that this is a particularly bad year for them. I've been to the island several times and do not recall mosquitoes being a problem. There is a huge grill on the deck and it cooks very well. I would stay here again and recommend the place to my friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! This was a very bizarre summer for mosquitoes, most likely due to the extreme winter we had, I am sure next summer will have its usual warm summer breeze which carries mosquitoes (if any) far far away!

Harbour House was GREAT

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent a week at Harbour House in Murray Harbour. The we that I am speaking of included my wife, my 2 daughters, 2 sons-in-law and our collective 3 dogs. We found this cottage to be very suitable and in fact much more like a home than a cottage. The house is well equipped with lots of little extras that we would not think to bring on our own. The full kitchen complete with coffee, tea,sugar, flour and a dishwasher(especially a dishwasher) was very much appreciated. With 3 bedrooms and 2 baths we found it comfortable and efficient for all when we were making our daily scrambles to get everyone ready and out the door to our activities for the day.The washer and dryer were great too. The large deck and yard were perfect for our dogs and we only had to go on the chase for one of them 2 times. The village has a nice little general store and a good restaurant just 4 doors down. Daily walks with the dogs were very pleasant. If you are going to PEI the New Glasgow Lobster Suppers near North Rustico are a must. We enjoyed several shows in and around Charottetown and had a great time deep sea fishing with Aiden's. The cottage and village were just great but you do need a car to get around the other areas of the island. The Northumberland beach near Woods Island is nice and not overly busy. Thank you Diana for hosting us in your lovely cottage/house and thanks for the attention to little extras. PEI is wonderful and we hope to visit again.

Quiet cozy retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Murray House and enjoyed every minute of it. The house is very inviting and a great location to tour the east side of the island. Plenty of lighthouses and beaches a short drive from the house. Great golf courses close by for the golfers. Murray Harbour is a quiet little fishing village away from all the major tourist attractions yet close enough to take in on day trips. We drove all the back roads in the area and highly recommend the Scenic Heritage Drives listed in the Points East map. We tried most the restaurants in Murray Harbour, Murray River and Montague. Weren't disappointed in any. Highly recommend both local restaurants in Murray Harbour. Murray House was always a welcome to come back to after our outings. Would definitely consider staying here again if we would return to PEI.
