Birding

Greenwich National Park (see below) (5 minutes) and East Point (40 minutes) are both superb spots to take the binoculars.

Greenwich National Park

A short 5 minute drive from the Inn, Greenwich Peninsula has become the focus of naturalists from around the world, with the 1999 opening of Greenwich, Prince Edward Island National Park. The Inn at St. Peters is the nearest available accommodation to these four hundred hectares of undisturbed sand dunes, wetlands and forests.

International visitors are fascinated by the massive parabolic dunes of Greenwich, constantly in motion and unique in North America. The National Park also provides access to spectacular north shore beaches. A state-of-the-art, interactive Interpretation Centre is located nearby.

Archeological digs on Greenwich peninsula have unearthed centuries of artifacts, evolving through numerous Aboriginal cultures to the 1700s when "St. Pierre du Nord" was a large Acadian settlement.

Gardening

The Inn is home to over 25,000 plants and flowers in addition to our vegetable and herb garden. Our Gardener Lynn Larkin is always happy to answer your questions or talk to the Chefs as they forage the gardens for that evening's dinner. Other notable gardens on the Island include the Dunes Studio Gallery and New Glasgow Country Gardens.

Confederation Trail

Built on abandoned railway lines, the Confederation Trail runs from one end of the Island to the other. From Tignish on North Cape to Elmira in Points East, the 279 km trail is the perfect spot for biking and hiking. The trail from the community of Morell to St. Peters is considered one of the prettiest sections of the trail as it meanders along the stunning coastline of St. Peters Bay. Additional information on the trail can be found at www.gov.pe.ca/visitorsguide/index.php3?number=1016641

Anne of Green Gables

No mention of the Island would be complete with a reference to Lucy Maud Montgomery's most famous character, Anne of Green Gables. The majority of "Anne sites" are located in Cavendish a busy tourist community which is an easy one hour drive from the Inn. www.gov.pe.ca/visitorsguide/index.php3?number=1014602

Îles de la Madeleine

The Inn at St. Peters is the perfect spot to stay before embarking on your trip to the Îles de la Madeleine. A short 20 minute drive to the dock in Souris makes the Inn a convenient place to spend the night before catching your 1:00 p.m. ferry the next day. http://www.ctma.ca
