Situated just outside the entrance to the National Park, we are far enough away from the main traffic area to provide our guests with the privacy and relaxation they deserve, yet we are still only a 5 minute walk to white sandy beaches!
Stanhope Cottages is a Quality Incentive Program property which exemplifies our high standards of cleanliness and state of repair, both of which our visitors have come to expect. We offer a variety of accommodations at the three-star rating ranging from a 1-bedroom cottage to a 4-bedroom cottage. We've also been awarded Canada Select's coveted four-star rating on our new three-bedroom luxury cottages.
Whether you want to swim, boat, cycle, fish, golf, or simply relax, Prince Edward Island offers a variety of activities to make your gentle island vacation a dream come true. You can enjoy deep sea fishing, windsurfing, swimming, cycling, bird watching, kayaking, and fine dining, all within 5 minutes of your cottage. There are lots of things to see and do in Stanhope.
Stanhope Cape Beach and Covehead Bay are both conveniently located just a 5 minute stroll from Stanhope Cottages. Stanhope Cape Beach is one of many National Park Beaches located on the beautiful north shore of PEI. Enjoy a morning walk, build a sand castle, picnic, swim, or just relax in the hot summer sun. Complete your day by visiting Covehead Harbour where you can enjoy a sumptuous meal of seafood in Richard's fully licensed restaurant overlooking the Covehead Bay or purchase live or cooked seafood to enjoy in the comfort of your cottage. You can enjoy a morning walk along the white sandy beach, the red soil on the Covehead Bay or along the newly constructed promenade which borders the Covehead Bay from the National Park to the Stanhope Golf and Country Club.
Of course, no vacation on PEI is complete without a deep sea charter from the Covehead Harbour and the spectacular view of the sun setting over the water and the dunes. Both Richard's Deep Sea Fishing and Salty Seas Deep Sea Fishing are located at the harbor in the National Park. Relax and enjoy the sun and water on a charter, tour, or cruise, and catch your own dinner! Experience the thrill of deep sea fishing or take an interpretive tour to learn about aquaculture or the history of the North Shore. Also, it is only 5 minutes drive from our cottage to get to a large Stanhope Golf and Country Club to ensure you have a great golf vacation in PEI. In addition, there are several restaurants or sea foods available around our cottages.
Our coin operated Laundromat is conveniently located for use by our customers. An iron and ironing board are available at office . Tide detergent and fabric softener bounce are available for purchase at the office.

The best service was provided in this cozy cottage with all of the amenities of home. A short walk to the beach and great cycling along the private road to trails in the area. No traffic noise at the cottage and kids played on the huge lawn without disturbing other visitors. Not far to drive to a nearby store for groceries and not much further to Charlottetown for dinner and a play at the Charlottetown Festival.

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Stanhope Cottages in PEI. The one-bedroom cottage that we stayed in was spotless and very comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with anything that you could possibly need for meal preparation. The grounds are very pretty and well maintained. This property is very family-friendly with a large play area with swings, basketball hoop, volleyball net, and a sandbox. This property is excellently placed as it was just a short five minute walk from the National Park and a beautiful, long beach. Its convenient location made it perfect for the many sightseeing day trips that we took and it is just a short fifteen-minute drive from Charlottetown. Susie was very helpful and knowledgeable,offering great suggestions for sightseeing and dining. Stanhope Cottages was the perfect place for our wonderful vacation.
