Here are just a few examples what our guests have to say about our cottages and their stay.

Our Guest Book comments

PEI hospitality was over the top!!! The amazing hospitality/generosity received from the cottage owner (Blair MacDonald) has exceeded my expectations. We travelled down through the night and he allowed us to get into the cottage early (there was no one before us). He is so kind, so sweet & just so accommodating. It is my birthday week and I wanted fresh lobster. He went, on his own time, and got us fresh lobster from the fisherman AND cooked it for us. I had a lot of questions through emails, prior to arrival and he answered them right away and was very patient with all my questions. The location is perfect and central from doing a lot of things in PEI. We went to the most northern part of PEI and got home before supper. I am already booked for next summer. He lives right on the property and you wouldn’t even know he was here. He is generously well priced compared to the other properties in the area and I feel right at home staying at Maggie’s Cottages. Even the dogs are loveable! I have already mentioned to my family that we could actually all vacation together down here because of the way he has it set up. The other thing that makes me really happy is that it is very close to the Confederation Bridge, another bonus. I can see myself spending more time here in the summers with being retired now. This is my home away from home! I highly recommend Maggie’s Cottages. Come stay with him, you will be glad you did!”

“We were supposed to stay one week but we ended up staying longer because we were reluctant to leave the warm hospitality and magnificent sunsets. Our dog Java, had never had such a good vacation being free to roam or just lie on the veranda smelling the salt air. We enjoyed the lodger it had every possible gadget one would need. Blair is a wonderful host and it is evident that he wants his guests to be comfortable and happy. The cottages are center to everything in PEI and we took advantage of it by travelling in all directions, but we kept saying to each other by the end of the day “let’s go home”, meaning Maggie’s Cottages. I don’t remember ever calling a visited area “home”. We will definitely be back on a regular basis. Maggie’s Cottages is a gem in the rough. We thank Blair for the “honeymoon” wine and cooked lobsters and appreciate Jean’s flower arrangements and card. Java says goodbye to Ellie and Maggie and hopes to stay friends. Maggie’s Cottages turned out to be just the peaceful haven we both needed so thank you Blair, from the bottom of our hearts.”

God Bless,

“Thank you so much for your PEI hospitality. For the second year in a row we had a tremendous amount of fun. The boys loved their vacation, including of course Mister Charlie Bear, the sea, and the pool!!! Looking forward to a longer stay next year.”

Sandra, Emily, Martin – QC

“A great place to stay! Very homey, very neat! Loved the bunk bed haha (which meant that I got to sleep alone).The ocean view is so beautiful. We took a bunch of pictures and consider the view one of the best part of this cottage and one of the best among all places we have stayed this trip.

We travelled all the way from Toronto to Quebec and to all the maritime provinces. PEI is our last stop and we couldn’t hope for a better place to end our trip. Thanks for having us!”

Lixian, Jinping, Su E & Crystal – ON

“We feel so lucky to have been able to spend a night in this incredible place (location, location, location!) but also the cottage without being too fussy. We will no doubt be back.”

Kathy & Welch – BC, Murray & Bijoux – NS

“I really enjoyed coming to the cottage here. The trampoline is so much fun. You can be jumping and looking at the view. The beach is beautiful. At low tide you could walk to the other side because of the huge sand bar. It is also fun to find hermit crabs. The camp fires were great. They warm you up really quickly. One of beautiful things here is when the sun set just above the bridge. Blair goes above and beyond. Last but not least was Charlie bear. He is a very friendly dog and you can even take him for walks. Now I want a dog like him.”

Katie and Family

“This was the first trip were taken that our daughter has been old enough to appreciate and she loved it, splashing along the beach, flying a kite, and of course sampling cows ice cream! Thank you, PEI, for the great scenery and thank you, Maggie’s Cottages, for a relaxing stay!”

“We have never come to PEI before. It is awesome so far. I love seafood and hermit crabs. Outside on the beach we saw a bunch of hermit crabs. I caught one and I named it Herbert but I’m going to let him back into the ocean. To sum it all up it has been great! Thanks.”


“Well this time is even better than last! Not a lot has changed since 2007 and the hospitality CERTAINLY hasn’t changed. We all enjoyed ourselves to the maximum and hope to come back again some time.”

The Lothian’s

“This was a very enjoyable week! Blair was very helpful and the cottage was well maintained. The Islanders are truly very special people and made sure that we were welcomed. The sites were spectacular and well worth the 20 minutes to get there (LOL). Hopefully we will be back soon.”

Many thanks & next year we will bring more family!”

“Thanks for renting us your cottage. My parents said it was the best 50th Wedding Anniversary gift we could have given them! We used to vacation here as a family for years and this was a great way for us to revisit island all together. Your cottage is so cozy; the view of the bridge and the sunsets are amazing; and the weather was great. We loved it and we hope to be back next year!”

Claudia, Joyce, Val, Marty & Charlie (ruff, ruff)
