About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, sleeps 12, waterfront vacation home

Carnoustie Cottage is on a quiet oceanfront point on Rustico Bay, looking out over the sand dunes of Prince Edward Island National Park, Rustico Bay, and the ocean. The view is spectacular in all directions. Easy access to the lovely red clay low bank to the natural beach which is shallow and ideal for small kids to play and splash, or for walks. As the bay is shallow, the only boats you will see are the mussel fishermen, kayakers, windsurfers and kite-surfers.

A short walk down the beach is an estuary filled with herons, eagles and other abundant wildlife. If you get up early enough you will be rewarded with an incredible sunrise and a glimpse of the bald eagles who perch on the bank for early morning fishing. Sitting on the wrap around porch looking at the views in all directions is the highlight of the property. A five minute bike ride or kayak, (or two minutes by car) down our road, and a short walk through the dunes and seagrass leads you to one of Prince Edward Island’s best kept secrets – an amazing ‘secret’ beach that only the locals know about. It has spectacular pinky white sand and fantastic views – and dogs are welcome too. The beach is great for body surfing on windy days, but generally the waves aren’t too big. There are natural tidal pools that form on the beach as the tide goes out, creating warm pools for smaller kids to play in and catch crabs.

This is just a few of the things you can enjoy without evening getting into your car. Carnoustie is without a doubt one of the nicest cottages on the island. It is a custom built, cedar shingle sided, Nantucket style cottage, built with superior craftsmanship. There is ample space for more than one family, if you are looking to share with friends or relatives. The basement bedroom and recreation area is the ‘kids retreat’ ( sleeps four) – it also opens into our huge double garage which doubles as the sports centre on rainy days and evenings. Any one who has loud, active kids will be thanking the owner profusely for having this space! The main floor has a large living central room , a small screened-in porch perfect for stealing a quiet moment or reading, (or sleeping if its warm) a dining area surrounded by windows looking out on the Bay, and a TV room with sofa and flat screen TV, off the kitchen. This could also serve as a sleeping area if you need to fit in an extra person.

No matter how many people might be there, you can always find a quiet place to relax, read or nap. The wrap around porch also ensures that no matter what time of day, you can choose your view. The main floor bedroom has French doors that open to the porch, with a lovely view over towards the estuary. The two bedrooms upstairs both have vaulted ceilings and fantastic views. The master Bedroom looks out to the ocean, and when the wind picks up you can hear the waves crashing over the sandbar.

This cottage is designed and furnished for people who expect and appreciate quality. This really is the greatest place to relax and revitalize, whether as a family vacation or looking for the ultimate golf and lobster escape. Carnoustie Cottage offers a truly unforgettable ‘PEI Experience”. Carnoustie is a hidden treasure waiting for you to discover.
