The house comfortably fits 6 people and can easily sleep 8 with the extra bed. Each bedroom contains its own bathroom and shower, and with the master bedroom there is also a big soaker tub. If it's raining and you want to cozy up inside with a good book, the living room contains 3 couches and the sitting room has a love seat. A big screen TV is there for your enjoyment, too. A spacious kitchen with all the amenities will let a family cook together . And, for your lobster, fish, or steaks and burgers (ask me about our local butcher) there is a barbecue and a big deck with the water view for an evening of good food and connection. The grounds are spacious and secluded. An area for crackling bonfires and star gazing is already set with chairs and waiting. Spend afternoons exploring the Points East Drive which will take you to golf courses, a swimming pool, the Rossignal Winery, other villages such as Murray Harbour, and unique restaurants. The stunning Panmure Island beach and lighthouse are less than a 5 minute drive away. (or you can venture to the beach on our provided bicycles) Aim for a sunset dinner at the Sandspit restaurant right at Panmure. The town of Montague where you can shop for your food, fill your car, eat at restaurants, or go for ice cream is only a short drive from the house. And, the capital of Prince Edward Island, historic Charlottetown is only a 50 minute drive. Or... you can just stay "home" and take the canoe out for a nice, relaxing paddle.

My name is Billy Cann, but I guess you know that! I grew up in this area called Gaspereaux and am proud of my family's heritage here. The house you will stay in was built by my own hands. I enjoy carpentry, fishing, the outdoors and meeting people like you. Because of my Irish heritage I love to chat and learn about others' stories. But, I won't keep you too long- just long enough to let you know where to dig your clams, buy your lobster, and have a relaxing beach time.
Why Billy chose Lot 61
This property consist of 15 acres of beautiful streams, wooded areas, duck pond and lots of birds to view. A great place to relax with all the privacy you will ever want during your summer vacation. Quiet nights to spend around a bonfire or to relax on the deck and watch the lights of St. Marys Bay under the stars.
Peace and quiet with a lovely bay view
Cann’s Waterfront Retreat provides a large house, well equipped, to accommodate a family. We found the self contained bedrooms to be large and convenient, with bathrooms in each. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. A large dining room and sitting area gave us lots of space. The large deck, with BBQ, patio set and extra chairs gave us a nice outdoor eating area. The fire pit and a small swing set gave our granddaughter a nice place to play.
The house is located in a treed area, well off of the road, to give a quiet country retreat.
Shopping in Montague was good, but you need to remember it is about a 15 minute drive one way. Plan your grocery shopping accordingly.
The house is very close to Panmure Provincial Park, where you will finding a fantastic, long beach.
The property owner was very helpful, providing with us with equipment for a toddler and lots of good local information.
If you are looking for a quiet getaway, you should consider this property for your next vacation.
Beautiful well equipped home on the water
Stayed for 2 weeks July 29th to August 12th - my husband and I ,along with our black lab. Found home very spacious and clean. Very lovely area as a base to explore eastern PEI but only 1 hr to Charlottetown. Home has so many windows and caught all breezes as temperatures reached to 29 C for 1-2 days . Beds were comfortable and all kitchen and bathrooms fixtures were clean and high end. Thank you for a great time Bette and Roland Dumas
Our family (three adults and three kids) stayed here for two weeks. This property went beyond our expectations. We look for a quiet and peaceful getaway and this was it. The property is very quiet and extremely private. The house itself is very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which is very convenient. Plenty of towels, sheets and blankets were provided and the laundry facilities work great for a family on the go. The BBQ is great quality and we cooked most of our meals on it, including lobster and mussels. We really appreciated plenty of outdoor seating and two different decks to choose from. The house gets a fantastic breeze off the water and has lots of windows to open - we never once felt too warm inside even though it was August.
The view to the water never gets old, and we enjoyed afternoons on the deck and evening fires overlooking the water. We also took the canoe on the property around the bay a couple of times. And dug for quahogs during low tide. The gardens surrounding the property are beautiful and attracts a lot of hummingbirds, we also saw several rabbits and one morning a fox was snoozing on the back lawn.
The property is a quick 15 minute drive to Montague for groceries and restaurants, as well as other attractions like golf, boat tours and local artisans. Five minutes in the other direction to beautiful Panmure Island Beach, and the road was quiet enough my husband and I jogged most mornings to the provincial park and back. The beach also features a small cafe which we got ice cream from a couple of evenings and walked the beach.
We also took in some theatre productions in nearby Georgetown and ate at Fireworks in Bay Fortune that is 40 minutes away (well worth the long waiting list).
The owner was very helpful while planning our trip and while we were there as well.
We've stayed at other areas around the island in the past but have agreed that this part of the island was the best location for the quiet, scenery, beaches and convenience to amenities.
Thank you so much for your feedback, Diane. I am so happy that you and your family were able to enjoy the property and its tranquility. And, also take advantage of the surroundings: Panmure Beach (and the Sandspit Cafe), Kings Playhouse, the local artisans...etc. Great that you did some canoeing and clam digging! It's such a pleasure to see my guests partake in an area that remains an important aspect of my family history. Hope to see you again!
A Lovely Home
We were looking for reasonably priced accommodation for our family of six adults, one child and a couple of dogs. This home is lovely, bright, spacious and newly finished. The three bedrooms each with its own ensuite was perfect for us. It is a large private property on a very quiet lot. My sons in law enjoyed collecting clams at the beach on the edge of the property. There is a beautiful ocean/sand beach a short drive away which is not overly populated and is dog friendly. A great stretch for a long walk. Montague is not far away to stock up on supplies and it is easy to plan day visits to other parts of the Island. If you are looking for a quiet scenic destination for a family or group of friends this is perfect. Billy is very nice to deal with and very responsive to your needs.
Thank you Cathy for letting me know about your stay. I'm happy to see that you had a good time, and that you and your family had a long enough time to enjoy the area where I spent my younger years! Also, pleased that your dog got a holiday, too. I'm an animal lover so fuzzy tourists are welcome, too! Hope you will come and visit again! All my best... Billy
Needs some TLC!
It's worth noting that all of the reviews on this site are from 2013 or earlier. While this is a nice house in a good location, there are some things that a renter should know in advance. For one, although it is on water, the walk to the beach is quite rugged and not suitable for anyone with mobility issues or small children. Most importantly, the house is in need of some TLC. The furniture is well worn, to the point of being unusable in some cases. The photos show the furniture in new condition; but it is well past that point now after 5+ years and many renters. The first night we were there, one of the boards on the deck broke. The owner fixed it promptly, however the screen for the sliding patio door was missing for the duration of our stay, despite assurances it was being repaired and would be replaced shortly. We enjoyed the area, which is a bit off the beaten path for PEI tourism, but the poor condition of the house prevented us from spending much time just relaxing and enjoying the views around the property. Oh, and the beds are terrible, as is the bedding which should have been replaced some time ago. The head board in at least one of the rooms is not attached to the bedframe and rattles when you roll over in the night. The owner needs to invest in some up-keep!
Thank you for your review. Our apologies for any inconvenience you had during your stay. I am taking into consideration all of your notes and appreciate you letting me know.
Despite some of your issues I hope you still managed to enjoy your time on our Island.
Very nice place to stay. Our whole family just spent a whole week in this beautiful house. The owner is very nice people. They almost provide everything for you to use in this one week living. We have 8 adults with one baby. We still feel a lot of room.
The beach in the front is very clean and shallow, very good for kinds to play the water and sand.
There are a lot of clams can dig in the beach.
Our whole family very enjoy this vacation time.
very thank the owner to provide that much service to us!
We rent by the week only during peak summer season. We charge $150/week extra/per adult over 8 people. Children will be less.
