Brookside Kitchenette Suites
Located on the South-East end of Prince Edward Island, Canada, right on the Trans-Canada Highway, about 2 miles west of the Wood Islands Ferry Terminal are four Summer-rental suites set up for housekeeping. Brookside is the name given these suites because they back very closely on a small brook that makes about a 3-mile run from its spring-fed source down to the sea just west of the Ferry Terminal. It includes two wheelchair-usable bridges across the stream as well as a grassy walking-trail loop with wheelchair-negotiable slopes and widths. The brook is quite safe, albeit cold, with depths of about 6 inches to 18 inches in one or two deeper spots.
The four suites have recently acquired names, but can still be referred to as 1, 2, 3, and 4. The new names are: Suite 1) Evening Overlook, Suite 2) Sunset Solitude, Suite 3) Handy Retreat, and Suite 4) Morning Overlook. Their distinctives are discussed individually with many pictures as four separate sections below, but all share the following features:
Each has a full kitchen and private bath. The three ground-floor suites are each fully handicapped-accessible (described in detail under another menu choice) and have two separate bedrooms, each with a single queen-sized bed with excellent reading light, dresser, and clothes rod. The one second-floor suite has a roomy single bedroom, also with a single queen-sized bed. In most suites additional sleeping accommodations for families can be arranged in the living area. Linens including towels, sheets, and kitchen towels are provided on a weekly basis (or as needed by special request). Separate from the bedroom(s), each suite has a living/dining area with a couch and overstuffed chair, and a dining table with at least four chairs. Each suite has a private deck with two outdoor chairs and a propane BBQ grill. Each brightly-lit kitchen has a sink with a dish drainer, dish towels, and dish detergent, a supply of dishes, silverware, pots, pans, and cleaning supplies. Each includes a full-sized refrigerator/freezer, a full-sized electric range, and a microwave oven.
