“Peaceful, relaxing and a dream come true.”
Reviewed 23 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

My mom's has always loved lighthouses and to be able to stay in one was more than she had ever hoped for. Very easy for an older person to get down to the water. Being able to use the kayak was a definite plus. Very spacious inside with many different gathering spots. Wish we could have stayed longer.

“An amazing experience”
Reviewed 30 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This has been, by far the most pleasant accommodation that we have ever booked, We had a family reunion at this wonderful Cottage this September and everyone was impressed with the quality of this Cottage, the uniqueness of having a real light house, sun rises that rival those see on cruise ships, and peace and serenity beyond imagination. No one wanted to leave this haven to explore other parts of the Island. They simply wanted to enjoy the cottage, its vistas, and wonderfully peaceful property. Best place to enjoy each other's company and catch up with family. Very clean, well kept, and beautifully furnished cottage. Friendly and helpful owners.

“a wonderful eastern experience and lighthouse luxury”

Hardy's lighthouse is only metres from the ocean and extremely private allowing us to have lots of time and opportunities to enjoy the herons, surnrises, the rainbows and sunsets. What an amazing venue for reflection and decompression.

The house itself is beautiful and well appointed. Ken and Jenny are attentive to every detail and requests that allowed us to have a magnificent holiday at their place. In terms of location, it is a great place to see the northern and central part of PEI. It is close to popular attractions such as Cavendish Beach, Summerside and access to beautiful beaches. We will be back.

Two couples shared an extraordinarily lovely week at the lighthouse. We had ample room in this older but very comfortable accommodation. The view of the channel and distant sand hills was beautiful, but a cautionary note, the ocean proper was a good distance off, so if you prefer a wide open view and crashing waves, you won't get that here. We loved sitting at the water's edge. The surroundings were so pretty, and the quiet and serenity was relaxing and peaceful. We so enjoyed watching the herons and other seabirds go about their daily activities. High tide or low, walking the beach was also a favourite past time. The crows will be your alarm clock if you have the windows open, which is a good thing if you want to see the spectacular sunrise. Star gazing was absolutely stunning. The location was convenient to exploring the North Cape and Central areas. Points East was certainly doable, but a bit of a haul to get back (about 2.5 hours from East Point). There are a couple of good restaurants close by, but do your groceries on the way in so you can enjoy the perfect surroundings right away. Book early: there were only a couple of weeks left in August when I booked in December.

“Paradise!”

Perfect house, perfect weather, perfect food. What else to want from a week away from home?

We were here for a week, two families together totalling 9 persons. We enjoyed the sea view, kayaking in the shallow waters and pushing further to the sand bar for a cool ocean swim. Waking to the sunset every morning, watching the tide rise while herons fly and dive...Ah! We never wanted to leave again. Bring your beach shoes!

We went clam digging and mussels hunting with mitigated success, but got to taste our own catch, and we had s'mores around the fire pit at night a few times.

We loved the huge dining table, the many sofas and the lighthouse; our daughters slept there the whole week!

As previous visitors stated, the closest decent grocery store is a 30-40 minutes drive, so plan to do a few drives to get what you need. That was the only negative we found, but having to feed nine requires some sacrifices.

You have to get fresh seafood in your visit, although you have to cook it outside: this is no worry, as Ken, the owner of this fantastic location, provides a giant cooking pot and an outdoor cooker so you can have lobsters, mussels, clams or whatever else.

Almost everything you need is here, so don't worry.

We thank Ken for allowing this house to shared and wish to one day return for two weeks!
