Imagine arriving at the house after a long drive that brought you to
this Island. You step out of the car and, as you draw a deep breath,
you can smell the landscape as you see it before you: The freshly cut
hayfields to the south, the small maple grove behind the house, the
rolling hills, covered with pasture and forest. This will be your
personal space for the week(s) to come. As the sun sets, you start to
see the brilliant, unpolluted night sky and in the distance the lights
of the coast of Nova Scotia.
The days you will spend here will be the stuff of vacation memories.
The rising sun will tickle you as you prepare your morning coffee. As
you read your summer novel on one of the lawn chairs in the garden,
you can hear and watch the songbirds all around you, and when you
retire for the night, you open your window letting the night breeze
bring you relaxing sleep.
In the fall you can take long strolls along the many miles of trails
in the brightly colored forest. In the winter you watch the bald eagle
draw its long circles in the sky. Spring brings heavy blooms on the
crab apples that line the driveway to the house.
These are but a few experiences on Percy Hill. What will be yours?
We were so thrilled with everything that Percy Hill had to offer. We
enjoyed a family Thanksgiving with lots of room, plates, table linen
and a choice of two huge dinner tables. The house was large and sunny
and cheerful with great views from every room. The fall colours were
lovely and the grounds made me envious of visitors who come to Percy
Hill in the summer. Percy Hill is an ideal location for a large family
get together or for several couples who want to get away and play a
few rounds of golf and spend the evenings with good food and a warm
fire enjoying each otherís company. Our October stay in PEI was
wonderfully relaxing and special thanks to Percy Hill.
