Shipwreck Shores Chalet offers you a unique and cozy 3 bedroom cottage with stunning views of the Hillsborough Bay and the glowing lights of Charlottetown at night. Fabulous sunsets, warm ocean breezes and lazy summer evenings on the deck are just a few of the things that help make your Island experience memorable. Enjoy the tranquil splendor of Point Prim’s North Shore and the rustic beauty of a country retreat where world famous golf, seafood and the excitement of Charlottetown is just a short drive away.
The Chalet is located on the high side of the peninsula of Point Prim on a 100 acre farm at the end of a private drive through scenic farm land and is nestled on its own grounds with parking, beautiful scenery and abundant wild life. It is not unusual to see harp seals sunning on the rocks in the bay, red fox, hare or partridge, and bald eagles love to soar along the cliff taking advantage of the amazing updrafts off the ocean.
'Twas on the shores of Selkirk Park in the year 1803, Scottish immigrants aboard the Polly landed to build their new settlement.
'Twas off these grand banks many merchant seamen met their fate (including the Gentleman, 1850 and the May Queen, 1902).
By the light of the Point Prim Lighthouse, today’s lobster fishermen still brave these very waters in their quest. Upon issue of a grant from Lord Selkirk to Black Murdock Gillis these rich and bountiful acres have since been farmed by the Gillis family.
Shipwreck Shores Chalet is built to provide visitors with the opportunity to experience the pleasures of a traditional farming and fishing community.
May your stay bring you days of pleasure as you stroll the shores, enjoy the fresh water springs, seal and eagle watching as blue herons pass overhead to Govenor's Island. Enjoy an evening on the red sand bars and another spectacular island sunset.
