Farmhouse Rental in the News

     The owner of this establishment was on CBC Radio this morning talking about their rental property and the updated PEI rreservation system and somehow their property booking rate was listed as 2x the regular rate - as a result they've had no bookings until last week - missing out on the first half of the tourism season.  They are located on the West River in Fairview (near Cornwall) PEI.
     It's great that some of these old Island Homes have been converted to rental properties - it gives visitors a taste of our architectural and cultural heritage.

       The information  below comes from their websites:

     The property is ideal for  vacationing.  The fifty acres  consist of wooded trails and open meadows and  approximately  one half mile of  beach front on an inlet of the West River.  This is tidal  with salt water but being on the south side of the Island there is no danger of  ocean currents or rip tides.  It is sandy and very warm for swimming.  The West River empties into the Northumberland Strait. There is also good clam digging along our beach.   There are  other sandy beaches and picnic grounds on the ocean as well as 2 provincial parks within a five to ten minute drive.
The Farm House
     The farmhouse was built in the l850’s and has been renovated completely.  It is a two storey white Island farmhouse with a red roof.  There are three bedrooms on the upper level, one large master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms.  There is a large bathroom on this level with a whirlpool tub/shower and washer and dryer.  The main floor consists of a large living room,  kitchen and dining room plus a powder room. The property features large lawns and gardens and a deck with a propane barbecue for your entertainment.
