Two - 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottages on Wheatley River close to beaches
About Brenda Michael
My name is Brenda and I am originally from London, Ontario but have made Prince Edward Island my home for almost 30 years. I raised my two daughters on the island and now have three grandsons to share my love for this special place. This property is over 10 acres of mostly wooded lot and I live in a house on the property.
Brenda Michael purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Brenda Michael chose Cymbria
I purchased this property to maintain close connections to my friends, family and find my own piece of heaven in my recent retirement. This area of the island is one of the most beautiful for good reason due to the beautiful landscapes, food, and activities nearby. I envision my grandchildren growing up spending many days with me gardening, boating on the river and playing in the yard!
What makes this Cottage unique
I fell in love with this property as soon as I saw the view from the front of the house. The house and cottages are on the edge of Wheatley River nestled in amongst pine trees in a serene location. It's so calming and idyllic!

Wheatley River Cottages
We enjoyed our stay at Wheatley cottages imensely! The cottage was clean, airy and bright with lots of windows and amenities. The grounds were well kept. Family friendly and quiet was what we were looking for. Firepit was available for night time marshmallow roasting. The owner Brenda is very accommodating and friendly. Loved it!
Wheatley Cottages are great for first time visitors to PEI.
We had a great time. The location allowed us to be somewhat central and jump around visiting various parts of the island. Brenda and Rick are great hosts, very helpful and have a lovely property. We recommend visiting Wheatley Cottages, you will enjoy your stay.
We are so glad you chose Wheatley Cottages for your visit to PEI. You are a wonderful family and Annie misses you so much!! We hope you visit us again!
This was the perfect place for us on Prince Edward Island!
We could not have asked for a better place to stay than Wheatley Cottages! Brenda was so responsive to our every question and request, and the cottage was perfect! Clean and neat with every amenity provided! Centrally Located, it was easy to see the whole island in the few days we were there. There are paths to walk through the woods and the river runs by with a calming influence. Very relaxing spot! Thank you, Brenda!
We are so glad that you LOVED our little piece of heaven on the Wheatley River!! How lucky are we that you chose us; you were perfect guests and we hope that you return soon! Brenda
Perfect little cottage!
This was such an awesome experience for us. Brenda was extremely friendly and helpful throughout. Her and her husband recommended some wonderful attractions in the are. The cottage was very well kept and everything we needed was supplied. We would defenitly stay her again if the opportunity came up.
Thank you for the wonderful review! We are so glad that you chose Wheatley Cottages to stay at and we sure hope to see you back again!
Everything was great. No negatives.I especially enjoyed my morning walk in the woods.
Nice setting but not what i was hoping for.
The setting is very nice. River views surrounded by trees. The cottage was nice, cozy and had the amenities needed for a week stay.
When we arrived, i had to provide an additional damage deposit , even though it had already been paid via homeaway.
We ended up leaving early because we felt uncomfortable. One night we were outside talking at about 11pm....now, there is a rule that no excessive noise after 9pm os permitted. Thats fine. We were not being excessively loud. No music, talking fairly quietly. The owner came out and told us to be qieut, when i tried to say something, he interrupted saying "the way you're talking right now is too loud. Whisper". I found it incredibly rude and uncalled for. I rented a cottage and went on vacation to have fun and spend time with my family enjoying the outdoors, but we felt we had to stay inside while on the property so we didnt "disturb" anyone.
We did have pets, however were only told once we arrived that under no circumstances could they be left alone in the cottage, and bedroom doors were to remain closed at all times. I feel as though this should have been mentioned prior to me making the full payment but ok, fine. We managed.
I have just received my "refund". They charged me an additional cleaning fee, even though i meticulously cleaned prior to leaving to ensure i would get as much of my deposit back as possible. I was also charged for a missing bathmat and facecloths that weren't even in the cottage when we arrived.
I didnt feel as if this was a family friendly cottage to go and have a good time. It felt very uncomfortable for us, and would better suit a couple without children or pets, or people who just want a place to sleep after being out all day.
It was unfortunate to receive this review as we had make many attempts to accommodate Stephanie and her family although I'm not surprised to see it as they left early.
Not only did she arrive with an additional dog that was not disclosed - she assumed because we had allowed her other dogs that we would accept this large dog no problem. Stephanie and I ended up agreeing to charging her for the additional dog. The dogs ended up barking a lot in the beginning and this was the beginning of complaints from the other guests at the cottage.
As well, there were three nights that Stephanie and her family were very loud well after midnight, one night being 2:00am, drinking alcohol and even swearing and yelling loudly, prompting us to go over due to continued complaints from the other guests and waking us several times. It was a very awkward and uncomfortable situation for everyone on the property.
They left early which we felt was the best decision as the other guests on the property were very uncomfortable with them there. It's obvious in our description and house rules that the property becomes quiet after 9pm and to be respectful of all other guests. Upon inspection of the cottage, it was mostly clean except we found it to be completely covered in dog hair - our cottage is not to be used as a kennel but it seems like it was and we had to char. Also, we found many cases of empty beer bottles at the end of the 5 days which indicated the drinking that was occurring in excess.
Finally, the towels were left completely stained and after many attempts to bleach, we ended up being able to save most of them but other items were ruined and a towel was missing. They were also charged for those items.
Unfortunately, this stay did not work out well. I am sorry they feel like they had such an uncomfortable stay but the drinking, staying up late, excessive noise (yelling and swearing), complaints from our other guests, dogs barking, and the extra dog being taken without permission - we were justified to have taken the action we did. This is definitely an extreme case that we have never encountered before and will take more of a critical lens when vetting guests. That being said, our other guests were also quite happy to have Stephanie and her family leave the property when they did and were able to enjoy the rest of their vacation as it was intended.
