Prince Edward Island (PEI) Canada: A View to Sea Cottages
A View To Sea Cottages are located in a rural setting of Prince Edward Island, Canada. They overlook the beautiful Darnley Bay where you will see fishermen, and farmers at work with the view of the sand dunes in the Gulf of St. Lawrence in the background.

our three cottages are fully accessible featuring 36" doors with lever handles and
touch- light switches throughout.
A large bathroom has a 5' turning radius between the toilet and sink, with room on either side of the toilet for a wheelchair. Under the sink is open with an insulated hot water pipe.

The tub/shower is a regular tub (to be family friendly), but we have a transfer bench with reversible back, as well as a bench seat that sits in the tub. There are two grab bars in the shower, one on the side and one on the wall between the ends. Also to help make showering easy, we have a handheld shower, as well as a regular shower head (again for family friendly).
For the toilet we have two types of toilet seat attachments. (again thinking of a little one that may be potty training, or someone that has shorter legs than I do) and a grab bar at the back above the tank.
Out of the three bedrooms, one of them has a double bed, one night stand with a touch lamp, an arm chair, lower closet shelf and lower light switches, which are the touch switches.
One of the two smoke detectors has a flashing light for someone with a hearing disability.
The kitchen in cottage #1 is open under the sink. The sink may not be lower, but that gets you out of doing dishes, unless you can fill the dishwasher.
To make everyone's vacation easy there is a ramp from the cement parking pad to the main entrance.
At the main entrance there is another touch lamp.
Everything is on one level as well on the covered deck that over looks the water.
Service dogs are welcome/
wheelchair accessible attractions in the area include:
Ship to Shore Restaurant within walking distance, or wheeling distance.
The Haunted Mansion (attraction, for the faint of heart) they have a ramp and the first floor and gardens are accessible, also one attendant and the person in a wheelchair are admitted free.
Cabot Provincial Park beach, has a boardwalk to the beach, also for unloading the park officials will unlock the gate to the beach entrance, just ask for help at the gate. There are times that the wind has blown the sand over the walk, but with notice they could have someone clear it off if they haven't already.
The Preserve company store and restaurant (where you can try Island made preserves (jam) and other lovely items has a wheelchair washroom, and a ramp. Part of the garden is also accessible.
If you need to rent a car, call your local car rental agency, so they can order you what you need and have it ready when you arrive at the airport if you are flying to Prince Edward Island.
Anne of Green Gables National Park is somewhat accessible, including the washrooms and first floor of the house, and some of the Balsem Hollow Trail, and Lovers Lane, and the Haunted Woods. (read the story by Lucy Maud Montgomery before you come to get the true feeling, or watch the movie.).
