Blue Crest Cottages
Reviewed 9 August 2009

We stayed for 2 weeks and just loved Thelma and Michelle's hospitality!!!

The property and ground are so well maintained. All the amenities are available (washer/dryer, movies, books, games, etc)

The cottages are clean, cute, confortable and well equiped. The way the cottages were built gives you privacy from each of your neighbour on each side. There is a pool and hot tub with lounge chairs.

They are well situated (food, liquor, pharmacy, etc). They are close to Cavendish's family activities but you can stay in for a quiet evening.

I will definitely return and I recommend Blue Crest Cottages wether you have children or not.

PS Dogs are welcomed!!!

We stayed in a one bedroom cottage from Sept 3 to the6th. It was cosy but extremely clean and well equipped. A nice view of the bay and close to Cavendish. One night we bought steaks and barbecued on our deck. It was lovely to sit out there at night . There was a pool and hot tub but the weather was rainy and cool. We had a wonderful time in PEI and look forward to staying there again but this time for a week. Thelma and her daughter were always working and cleaning. Very friendly people .

We found this place in the summer of 2006 and knew then we would be coming back, maybe even every year! We stayed again this year and hope to be back next year.

The owners are amazing. Thelma even drove my husband to the golf course to meet his friend!

The views are spectacular! Overlooks Rustico Bay and the River Clyde. You can see the lighthouse at North Rustico and the farms of Anglo Rustico.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom detached cottage with 1 bathroom. The master bedroom had a comfortable queen (I slept so well!) and the other bedroom had a double/queen and a twin. There was also a pull-out sofa in the living room which we didn't use. The living room / dining room / kitchen was spacious enough for 2 adults and 2 children but may be crowded with more than 4 people. There was table in the kitchen / dining room with 4 chairs. The TV had a DVD / VCR and it could be rotated to be viewed from the kitchen or dining area or living room. The kitchen had a stove / oven, fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. There was no dishwasher. Dishes, utensils, and cooking stuff were all supplied, including sponges and dishwasher liquid. There was even salt, pepper, coffee filters, and sugar for coffee. You could go to the offiice for lobster pots and crackers. The deck was private and had a BBQ and a table with 4 chairs plus a rocking chair. We had young kids (3.5 and 2) and Thelma put us overlooking the playground which was so great since the kids could play and we could sit out on the deck or make supper in the cottage.

The property has coin-operated laundry, heated outdoor pool, hot tub, kiddies pool, playground, hammock, adrinodack chairs, a waterfront arbour with wood stoves and wood provided. The cottages overlook a lovely wildflower meadow and then further overlooks Rusico Bay. There are also canoes and tricycles and bikes available. There are books, videos, and DVDs that can be borrowed and there is also tourist brochures on-site. Note that although you have access to the water, the property is not on a typical beach with sand - it is more of a wet densely-packed sand. You can go mussel / clam digging though.

My only issue was no phone in the cottage which didn't bother us last time. This time we had friends who overlapped with us for two days who were staying elsewhere, so a phone in the cottage would've been nice, but I guess that's what cell phones are for!

Rusticoville is about 10 mins drive from Cavendish and all of the attractions there. I highly recommend the beach at North Rustico (in PEI National Park). It doesn't have the amenities of Cavendish (canteen), but it does have supervised swimming and washrooms. The sand is nicer and the water is shallower and warmer and it is less crowded.

Even though Blue Crest is not in Cavendish, I thought it was nice to be a tad out of the way, away from the busy-ness. Also it is close to North Rustico which has two grocery stores, a lovely bakery and a great fish market.

We hope to stay again in 2008!
