Stay at Walden Cabin

Fed up with hectic city life? Head for the hills!

See rental site:

In the heart of Prince Edward Island’s rolling countryside there’s a private creative oasis that echoes the spirit of Henry David Thoreau: Walden Cabin. A week in the woods can be good for the soul. It can also be an opportunity to catch up on your reading, a base for golf or theatre excursions, or just an opportunity to reconnect with nature.

A winding gravel drive through mature maples leads to the main cabin, nestled in a clearing on ten acres of mixed woodland and wildflowers. A hike to the top of the hill reveals a panoramic view of classic PEI farmland.

Walden Cabin was designed in the style of a heritage PEI carriage house, complete with cedar porch, pine board floor, washroom, kitchenette, and open bedroom loft. The loft bed is directly below a skylight; drift off to sleep under the summer stars!

A second building, the bath house, is unique to PEI. The morning sun and summer moon shine in through a cathedral window onto a claw foot tub. A soak in the tub is divine, like a luxurious bath in the great outdoors! Mix it up a bit and bathe outdoors in the outdoor rain shower under a concord grape canopy.

Relax in comfort and complete privacy. Walden Cabin features top-quality bedding and linens, a complete kitchen that includes a fridge and range, plus all your dishes and utensils. High speed wifi is also available so you can check in at work (if you have to) without leaving the porch.

Enjoy a book from the summer reading library by the woodstove, or do some writing at the desk.

Walden Cabin is centrally located, 30 minutes from Confederation Bridge. A few minutes’ drive in any direction takes you to most of PEI’s most popular attractions: Cavendish Beach, seafood and fishing in North Rustico, theatre in Charlottetown or Victoria by the Sea, and world class golf. A nearby cross-country ski park is an excellent place to hike, or you can stop in at By the River bakery in Hunter River for fresh baked treats.
