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 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 amazing 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 canoe on what has been called 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 or roast marshmallows over an open fire. Or cook breakfast or boil a feed of lobster in our modern kitchen inside. The choice is up to you at this unique 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!

Perfect for the vacationing couple or family who desires peace, serenity, and solitude but who does not want to be isolated from all the attractions that make a PEI holiday special!
