Heritage roads cut through swaths of forest by the Island's early settlers provide glimpses through treed canopies of the rolling farmland and river vistas beyond.

But there are infinite ways to experience the Island. Whether it be hiking or cycling numerous community trails or the Confederation Trail that traverses the Island from tip to tip, enjoying the spectacular views while teeing up on one of its teeing up on one of the nearby premier golf courses, trying your luck at deep sea fishing in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, enjoying a sumptuous lobster supper -- that quintissential pei summertime feast, experiencing uplifting jazz or classical music resonating throughout one of the Island's most distinctive churches or the down home Maritime sounds of a ceilidh shaking the rafters of a local community hall, there is plenty to captivate a spirit set free a thousand miles from home.

And before you leave, you will surely have found some insight into the "Island way of life."

But perhaps our guests say it best:

Aug. 9, 2006

The past 11 days have been a great family vacation, and staying at your property had a lot to do with our tremendous experience. From the moment we first stepped into the chalet, we were "breathless," as the decor and scenery were unbelievable. Our two daughters enjoyed immensely the swings and toys during our stay as they both entertained them on a constant basis.

Philip & Dawn, the both of you should be very proud of your property, as the chalet is beautiful, and you have provided everything needed to make a family vacation a great experience. We will definitely be wanting to stay here again on our next visit to PEI.

Confederation Trail in Fall
Couples, golfers and naturalists will love PEI in the fall!

Autumn on PEI is idyllic for couples. Warm days, romantic nights in front of the fireplace, long walks on deserted beaches, perfect weather for hiking and biking, relaxed golf, spectacular foliage, and the feeling that you have the entire Island all to yourself! [Slideshow][More]

Although PEI is known as a great summertime destination, more visitors are discovering what Islanders have long known -- that autumn on Prince Edward Island easily rivals summer in its attractions and may indeed be the best season to experience what the Island has to offer! Those with flexible vacation schedules, a love of long walks along deserted beaches, cycling or hiking in wide-open spaces amid rolling pastoral or oceanfront scenery, testing their golf skills against a different course each day, or simply driving leisurely along scenic backroads will find that they have to sacrifice nothing but a swim in order to enjoy spectacular fall foliage and the feeling that you have the entire Island to yourself!





Fall on PEI is a photographer's heaven and a cyclist's dream. The Island takes on a different aura in autumn, as the changing colors of the season transform our scenic vistas (view fall slide-show). The reds, oranges and yellows of deciduous trees juxtaposed with evergreens, warm-hued grain and potato fields and blue sky and sea make our fall foliage stand out in a region of the world known for its autumn brilliance.

Cyclists visiting PEI for the first time are often surprised to find that its low elevation can translate into such undulating terrain, and those who enjoy this challenge will appreciate the infrequently travelled paved roads along the north shore in such areas as New Glasgow and Hope River only minutes from Seascape Chalet. The north shore area also offers great dirt road paths and community trails for hikers that are especially vibrant in autumn. For those who enjoy purpose-built trails for hiking and cycling, PEI is proud to have completed the Confederation Trail, the province's section of the Trans Canada Trail along which hikers and cyclists can now travel the interior of the island from tip to tip along a former railway bed which features easily manageable grades.

You don't need to miss a ceilidh, lobster supper, or romantic walk on the beach. Sacrifice nothing more than a swim and bring an extra layer of clothing (see weather) to call Cavendish beach, your favorite golf course, or virtually the entire Island your own. Take advantage of our discounted rates, warm September days and crisp evenings spent lounging in front of the fireplace, scenic vistas with a complex palate of colors during our extended fall foliage season, and full slate of fall activities that continue well into October.

There is something for everyone on PEI during autumn, including some of our most popular annual festivals and events (more here), such as the Fall Flavours, Evangeline Bluegrass Festival, PEI International Shellfish Festival, PEI Studio Tour, and more that are held only at this time of year. So check your calendars and Escape to the Island this fall!

Recommended route to PEI from:

Central Canada

From Ontario and Quebec, we recommend travel through Canada, as travel through Maine will take at least an additional hour on less travelled roads. Take TC 20 to Riviere de Loup, HWY 185 to Edmunston, TC 2 through New Brunswick via Fredericton and Moncton, HWY 11 and 16 to the Confederation Bridge. For travel through Maine, take rte 212 past Sherbrooke, Quebec to cross the border at Woburn QC / Coburn Gore ME. Take rtes. 27, 16, 8, and 2 to Skowhegan and continue on rte. 2 to meet I-95 in Pittsfield, south of Bangor. In Bangor, take either I-95 to Houlton, or rte. 9 to cross the border in Calais, ME / St. Stephen NB.

>> Montreal
>> Ottawa
>> Toronto

Nova Scotia

Haligonians have the option of taking either the bridge or the ferry (in season). After taking exit 15 off HWY 102 in Truro, be sure to pick the correct direction - take 104W to NB for the bridge or 104E to Pictou for the ferry (about 2 hours longer travel time).

>> Halifax

United States

We recommend entering Canada via Houlton, ME instead of Calais, especially in summer. From Bangor, take I-95 north to Houlton, ME/ Woodstock, NB and then TC 2 through New Brunswick via Fredericton and Moncton, HWY 11 and 16 to the Confederation Bridge. There is little traffic but also few amenities on this route between Bangor and Fredericton. Distance is longer but travelling time is shorter.

Driving to Canada from Bangor via route 9 to Calais, ME / St. Stephen, NB and then TC 1 via Saint John to Moncton, is a fine option for those who might want to stay overnight in the scenic Bay of Fundy coastal area of St. Stephen or Saint John. This route is more scenic but has reduced speed zones and more traffic. The border crossing can also get busy during peak season.
