In 2016, my husband, Nathan Cutler, and I (Sarah) were searching for an employment and lifestyle change. We decided to take a road trip across Canada for some inspiration. We packed up our 4 kids, jumped into our minivan, and started our trek from British Columbia to the East Coast.
When we arrived at the Confederation Bridge (7 days, 5300 km later), I was overcome with "awe" as I stared out over the ocean at this tiny province that laid before me. The Island was calling to me! I knew instantly that Prince Edward Island was to be our home.
A month later, we officially moved to PEI! We bought and renovated a motel in North Rustico. A project of much labour and love. When that proved successful, Nathan convinced me to continue to expand our business with the purchase of Anne's Windy Poplars Cottage Resort in 2019.
Anne's Windy Poplars Cottage Resort was established by John and Jean Brewer in 1987. It was among the first accommodations in the area to offer golf packages, and the only one to offer private hot tubs. They excellently maintained this 5 acre resort in the heart of Cavendish.
We are excited for the vision we have for this 4 Star property. We will be updating, and remodeling to help keep this resort desirable and relevant for the coming years. We will continue to strive for excellence in service, and provide a quality, comfortable & memorable stay for our guests. We hope that you will choose to stay with us for your next visit to PEI!
We look forward to meeting you, and hearing about your story!
March 2021: We have winterized some cottages! That means we can be open all year round beginning in June 2021. We have replaced couches in Cottages 9-14. Cottage 11 is fully renovated with the addition of a 4 person hot tub. Updated pictures to hit the website shortly. The outdoor pool is also under renovation to replace the liner and deck.
Updates as of July 2020: We have started by replacing all bedding with luxury quality sheets, pillows, and duvets. The bedrooms have black out blinds instead of draperies. For guest convenience, traditional coffee machines have been replaced with K-CUP Keurig's. Kitchens have been re-stocked with supplies in good-new condition. All towels are hospitality-grade. The guest laundry room has been completely renovated, and laundry services are now free of charge. A new hot tub was put in at cottage #8. Unfortunately, our Sauna got destroyed in the 2019 Hurricane and cannot be replaced at this time.
Two massage chairs have been added to the activities centre. The 5 bedroom house is becoming a new 3 bedroom, 1 bath cottage with private hot tub. We have re-themed the resort/cottages with new signs and plaques.
