Only a five-minute walk, By the Bay Cottages is the closest resort to the golf course, which can also be reached by golf cart. Both the resort and golf course overlook the cliffs of Covehead Bay, and are just minutes from the famous north shore beaches of the National Park. A mature and well-maintained golf course located in the heart of this tourist and residential area, the Stanhope Golf & Country Club was established in 1970 and designed by Robbie Robinson. The links offer all golfers a test of their true skill, and genuine enjoyment.



With its lush lawns of thyme and its aromatic saltwater air, it's no surprise that our spacious By the Bay cottages appeal to couples. Our swimming pool with hot tub and gazebo is a highlight feature, and there are plenty of tables and comfortable Adirondack seating on gabled verandahs – south-oriented towards the bay – from which to enjoy this oasis over a glass of wine or a meal. The farm-to-table food served in local restaurants provides an extra ‘country flavour’!

Just a stroll from the Prince Edward Island National Park, tucked away along the north shore and adjacent to Covehead Bay, By the Bay Cottages immerses you in an atmosphere created by our famous red soil, white sand and private beach walks. It’s the perfect place to experience the magic of moonlit nights. Stay with us, and let yourself be whisked away. So what takes your fancy? Champagne on the verandah? Will it be an evening stroll along the path by the bay? Or is it being dazzled at a nearby Celtic music venue with its jigs and reels!
