We first traveled to Prince Edward Island in the early 1990s. One of our neighbors in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, had grown up in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and suggested that we might find PEI an interesting place to visit.
On our first visit, we fell in love with the Island. We began making yearly visits and found that our love affair with this place never seemed to wane. During each additional trip, we always seemed drawn to the eastern end of the Island, and we gradually began to dream about finding a place on the Island to call our own.
Bruce longed for a quiet place to work and write on his many ongoing historical research projects, and I hoped to establish a retreat house for people involved in the creative arts--a place where working artists and writers could find a quiet space to let their creativity soar and come to fruition. In 2003 our dream took shape and became reality. Our former Island hosts and now dear friends, Elora & Robert Rose, suggested that a house located near them in the area of North Lake Harbour might be the perfect location for our retreat centre. After viewing the property, we agreed.
Each year brings new, sometimes small, sometimes big changes, and Harbour Lights Guest House continues to evolve, but the quiet and beauty of our rural landscape remains constant. We invite you to come for a visit and let Harbour Lights Guest House's inspirational setting work its magic on you, too.
