Frances and Drew went above and beyond expectations to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The Coburn's are gracious hosts. Their hospitality was shown in the amazing breakfasts and the attention to details and cleanliness in the rooms. I wish I had as beautiful and modern a bathroom at home! We highly recommend Linden Homestead!
And it is so close to all things "Anne" too!
My husband and I were very disappointed with our stay at Linden Homestead. We searched for a clean, quiet and comfortable cottage for our trip to PEI in September. We were impressed with the high ratings on Trip Advisor and our email communication with the owners so we decided to book it for a week.
We were kindly greeted by the hosts. We took a quick look at the cottage - it had a musty smell but we thought it just needed to be aired out by opening the windows.
It was late and dark so we quickly unloaded the car. To our dismay we soon noticed that the cottage was not clean. There was food debris on the stove, counter and in the fridge. Every surface had a thick layer of dust. There was hair in the shower. The linens did not smell fresh.
We made the decision to stay the night as it was late and we were very tired from traveling all day and didn't have another option for lodging. I called the owners and requested some cleaning supplies. The employee who brought the supplies offered to clean it for us but I was more comfortable doing it myself.
We had a terrible night with little rest and woke feeling extremely stressed. My husband was feeling unwell due to allergies from the dust and mold. We checked out the next day. We felt uncomfortable saying anything further about the cottage to the owners at that time. Luckily we were able to find another place to stay so our trip wasn't completely ruined.
I emailed the owners after our return home explaining why we left but received no response.
We will never stay at another hotel or cottage again without thoroughly checking it out first for cleanliness.
I can tell you first off, that I believe if you can't say something good, then don't say nothing at all. After two weeks in Eastern Canada, staying at 10 different places, I will only review three, as I wouldn't waste my time on three or four star places. Breakfast at first sight, made me a bit nervous (gotta be honest), I never do yogurt and run from it on sight and that was the treat before the meal began, in the form of a parfait. I was surprised to find out that this parfait was actually delightful and when I got near the bottom, I ran into fresh blueberries which made it exquisite. The english muffins came out and they had accompanying them, carrot cake jelly (I kid you not!) I hate carrots. I hate carrot cake. My wife turns to me and says, "try this" who knows I HATE carrots. I reluctantly took a bite....and it was the single most best thing I had tasted on this trip. Frances should have her own cooking show on tv!!!!! Frances is by far the culinary queen of the entire island!! Yes, the rest of the food was amazing, but it was eclipsed by the two items I dreaded most!!! Enough of this "negativity". Let's move on to the positives. The room was private, clean, well layed out and the grounds were immaculate, my high point of the grounds was the inviting picnic table where I could sit and journal, and get idea's for songs that I write. As an added bonus, the smells of the pines and I think a touch of flowers made this place absolutely dreamy. As hosts, I can only think of one word for Drew and Frances-ADOPTION!!!!! Their warmth and kindness and genuine sweetness made leaving the saddest point of that week. When you leave a place, you don't normally talk about it a week later, do you? But this place will stay in our hearts for a long time and it's because of two charming people who opened up their lives, homes and hearts for two wayfaring strangers. I salute you.
We stayed with France and Drew and really enjoyed our stay.
Lovely hosts and very helpful for planning our days.
The property is very well situated geographically, which makes makes it much easier for visiting either ends of the island.
Drew and Frances were lovely hosts. My husband & I stayed with our 2 kids in the King Suite for 3 nights. The room was renovated, lovely and clean. It had a large closet, full bathroom (stand up shower and separate tub) as well a couch, TV and large windows. We simply brought an air-mattress for the kids and still have enough space. Drew and Francis went above and beyond to accommodate us during our stay, their breakfasts were delicious. They were so kind and lovely to be around and gave us some great suggestions on where to visit on the island. Overall, our stay was a wonderful experience. The B&B is in a great location, just off the Central Coastal Drive, which has spectacular scenery.
