Every variety of accommodations but camping is available at this beachside resort: very simple motel units, a somewhat dated country inn and best of all, cute-as-kittens cottages. The latter are more like small 2-story homes than cottages with fireplaces, Jacuzzis, and full kitchens and are just lovely (go for those). When you’re not in your cabin, you’ll likely spend time at the pale yellow inn with wrap-around veranda and porch swing dates from the 1850s (it has historical ties to Lucy Maude Montgomery); you might bump into one of the many Montgomery scholars who visit here every year. With some of PEI’s best golfing, a 200-seat restaurant, shops, and, of course its beachside location, Shining Waters offers good bang for the buck, er, loonie.
