Things to do

Whether it’s a Sunday morning trip to the Farmer’s Market and flea market or a swim on your own beach, Cinnamon Coast Beach House is at the centre of a holiday’s worth of fun and relaxation and a lifetime of memories.

Living outdoors

With an expansive deck and wrap-around porch, Cinnamon Coast Beach House will make even large groups feel at home.

There are 2 tables and loungers, an outdoor shower to rinse off sand from the beach and a propane BBQ.

We also have a selection of sand toys for little ones to use while they stay with us.

With a 1.4 acre lot, there is lots of room for soccer games, frisbee, horseshoes, or a great game of catch with your children.

At the water, spend an afternoon wading in the warm, shallow waters or finding clams or other sea life. Children can spend hours with a pail and shovel searching for buried treasures. If the tide is out, go for a walk along the beach.

Bring your canoe or kayak and enjoy a paddle in the calm waters of Egmont Bay.

Dining

Dining is generally casual and, of course, Prince Edward Island is one of the best places in the world for seafood. There are more than two dozen restaurants in Summerside and more than 250 on the Island.


In North Cape, you can watch the tides of the Northumberland Strait and the Gulf of St. Lawrence meet while you dine in the fully licensed restaurant of the North Cape Interpretive Centre. The views and the food are great.

For ice cream lovers, there’s a Cows Ice Cream Parlour in Summerside. Closer to home there is the Richmond Dairy Bar, less than 7 minutes from the house.

Shopping

You can shop to your heart’s content in Summerside, whether it’s groceries to stock the kitchen or browsing the County Fair Mall or Waterfront Shopping Centre.

Locally, there’s a variety store, a cafe and a dairy bar, but, remember, there’s very little Sunday shopping on Prince Edward Island, except for Hal’s Farmer’s Market and Flea Market, just west of Summerside.

Churches

If you would like to attend church services, there are a large number of denominations on PEI.

Arts, tours & cultural activities

Follow the Western Arts and Crafts Trail –  don’t miss the Potato Museum! – or take a self-guided Lighthouse Lover’s Tour.

Start with West Point Lighthouse, where you can climb to the top and look out over the Northumberland Straight. If that’s too strenuous, just look out the Cinnamon Coast Beach House windows at night to see its beacon shine.

Nearby Summerside also offers The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada, which actively promoting and preserving Celtic culture and heritage.

Finally, don’t miss The Bottle Houses, 15 minutes from Cinnamon Coast Beach House. You can visit distinctive houses, built from 25,000 glass bottles, along with the rock garden boasting 70 varieties of flowers.

You can learn all about Prince Edward Island at Gateway Village at the food of Confederation Bridge.

Children’s Activities

There are children’s activities at the nearby Mill River Provincial Park which includes walking trails, wagon rides, playground equipment, an activity centre and access to the Mill River Fun Park with water slides and a swimming pool, as well as several fun, exciting and educational programs.

Golf

Birding

Prince Edward Island has more than 333 species of birds! You can ask for the Field Checklist of Birds at Visitor Information Centres.

Fishing

There’s inland fishing including a freshwater pond in nearby Egmont Bay and a large number of deep sea fishing charters are available. And after it’s over, the captain will send you back to Cinnamon Coast Beach House with your catch of the day, freshly filleted and ready for the barbecue!
