A Tale of Two Cottages Part Two


      Hello everyone,

             I hope you  had a lovely weekend.

              Today, I am sharing Eventide Cottage the 
          little cottage next door to ours that my
             daughter and family bought the year after 
we bought ours.

          It had been empty for several years and 
it needed a lot of work to make it
    the charming little cottage it is now.

You can relax on the new deck
and enjoy the beautiful
view that is always changing
as the tide comes in and out.

Lots of white paint was
used here as well.

A new deck and several new window as 
well as the garden doors were added.

So nice to see it opened up.

Sailboats going by on beautiful
summer days.

                                            Low tide at our cottages......across the
                                            Strait you can see St. Peter's Island in
                                            the distance.

My husband and I enjoy long walks on the
beach at low tide . I love finding sea glass
to add to my collection.

You can admire the view from inside too.

A small bathroom with a washer and
an outdoor clothesline for drying your
laundry in the fresh sea air.

The small bedroom has a sliding
barn door and two big windows.

This little corner outside the
kitchen has a breakfast bar


The antique cupboard was a new
addition here last year.

Another new addition is an outdoor shower
for those sandy beach toes or to 
enjoy the stars while showering
on warm summer nights.

The main bedroom....there is another
small bedroom with bunkbeds as well.

Apple blossom time is so pretty

They put new cupboards in the kitchen
and painted them white.

On the other side of the kitchen is the
full size frig and stove with a pantry

Lots of improvements as you can see

As a gardener I love that there are lots of
trees and flowers to enjoy as well.

Eventide will be available for rent for part
of the season this summer......hoping the
covid situation is under control and any
of you that are interested can come
to visit Prince Edward Island this year.

There are more details on my right sidebar
if any of you are interested as well as my
email address.

Thank you for your lovely comments
on Part one of A Tale of Two Cottages.

Maybe I will see you here this summer!

Take care,

SO pretty what they have done to their cottage. Looks so crisp and clean by the water. Love the soft blues and whites. Lovely post!

We stayed in a B&B cottage similar to the "old" cottages that you have beautifully updated. I fell in love with the area and view and imagined how I would have done the same kind of changes to that poor little cottage. Thanks for feeding my dreams.

I like how the sailboat's sail matches in with the décor. xx

It's just wonderful. I love the white sofas in the first picture. You are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful area.

Beautiful job on the cottage restoration, Carolyn! Lovely choices of colors. If you don't mind my asking, where did you find the white slipcovers? I have a loveseat for which I am looking for a white slipcover. - Barbara

Carolyn said...

Hi Barbara
The slipcovers are from Ikea as is the loveseat and sofa.
Thanks for your visit

Absolutely stunning. Love the aesthetic. I am going to copy heaps of your ideas here down under (although I won't be able to match your picture perfect snow shots!). They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery - and I am very sincere. Look forward to your future posts.
