Imagine the perfect vacation...

... a serene nature lover's paradise set off the beaten path with stunning waterfront views, trails and boating activities but also within minutes of all of the activities of the PEI north shore. Just minutes from Cavendish, Trout River Retreat is a hidden gem perched directly on the bank of one of PEI’s most scenic boating rivers.

Experience life at the water’s edge — you won’t get any closer than this!
A newly-renovated luxury 4 star chalet, Trout River Retreat is nestled among the trees in the riparian zone on the bank of its namesake river for amzing 180 degree views across, down and upriver, and an incredible feeling of being at one with nature.

Feel at one with nature!
Wake up to the soothing sounds of rustling leaves of poplar and birch and calls of osprey and kingfisher. Enjoy your morning coffee on our second-floor balcony taking in the "million-dollar views" of the river, great blue heron taking flight, and soaring bald eagles.

Canoe the best paddling river on PEI!
Use our direct river access to put in your canoe on the "best paddling river on PEI" (Bob Gillette, Paddling Prince Edward Island). Canoe, PFDs and paddles are provided. Paddle upriver in the late afternoon and duck under Gunn’s Bridge to encounter nesting Great Blue Heron.

Explore community trails and heritage roads!
Also upriver is a riverside path along the 19th C original Trout River Road leading to a community park with a picnic area and groomed waterside nature trails. Venture further to hike tree-canopied heritage roads, among the oldest on PEI.

Enjoy a relaxing vacation at the river's edge!
Your options don't end there! Lay back in our hammock and contemplate cloud formations above, roast marshmallows over an open fire, or use our outdoor wood stove to cook breakfast or boil a feed of lobster (a modern option is also available inside). The choice is up to you at this unique glamping chalet with off-the-grid vibe but equipped with all the amenities of home!

Trout River Retreat is an amazing place to relax and decompress!
Whether that means completely embracing yourself in the natural habitat or simply putting your feet up after a busy day exploring all that the PEI north shore has to offer, Trout River Retreat is sure to create many fond memories!

Why compromise? Enjoy glamping at its best - become embraced by nature without sacrificing any of the comforts of home!
Don't worry! You don't need to! Trout River Retreat, located only nine minutes from Cavendish but perched directly on the Trout River, gives you the best of both worlds!

Enjoy a relaxing vacation in an amazing 4-star luxury chalet perched at the river's edge!
