About christine filiberto
I live in Florida and have been spending 2 weeks out of each summer in Prince Edward Island since 1990. I have 4 children who have all been here to visit with me. My youngest child, Alexa, has fallen in love with the home and the island as I have. She has been coming with me every year since she was 3 years old. I am an artist and find great inspiration from the beauty which surrounds my home in Long River. It is my retreat back into a simpler time where things all make sense to me. My heart resides in PEI all year round.
christine filiberto purchased this Cottage in 1991
Why christine filiberto chose French River
My Mom and Dad found this property and purchased the 180 year old Victorian Farm House in 1990. My Mom called to let me know about this 'cute little farm house' located on the same property which was also for sale. I came up and immediately fell in love with their place as well as mine. My Mom and Dad spent many precious summers here. My Mom's last visit was in June of 2009. Although she was weak and frail she gathered up her strength for one last time to go to the place she loved the most. She died the following November at her home in Florida. We released her ashes at Cape Tryon, PEI, which was a place she loved to go to at sunset.I treasure our family memories of this beautiful magical island and feel such gratitude to my parents for finding it. We have friends now that we have become very close to in PEI and have watched their families grow along with ours.
What makes this Cottage unique
For large families a unique benefit is to be able to rent both places out and be right next to each other. The privacy of our homes is very special. We are surrounded by pastures and farmland. We wake up to birds singing and cows mooing every day. We are in the middle of the Island which makes it easy to get to all places you want to go. Our beach at cousin's shore is unique in the fact it has a freshwater stream which meanders from a lake and flows into the ocean, this stream is very warm in the summer and being shallow it is a great place for children to frolic. This beach is vast and wide and it is common to have bonfires there at night. It is uncrowded and peaceful.There are wonderful restaurants close by and in 2013 Sting had a tour stop/performance in Summerside ,which is 15 minutes from our house. He was amazing!We love going into Charlottetown for shopping, festivals, theatre, casino and poker room, harness racing, and fine dining. It is a scenic and pleasant drive 45 minutes from our house. The airport is also located in Charlottetown.

Home away from home
Built on a homestead, this quaint cottage is situated in the nicest county in PEI. 5 minute drive from Cousin's shore beach. This is by-far one of my favorite beaches on the island and has a nice stream for skim boarding. The house has the most beautiful view of rolling farm hills and an open sky. It was our second time visiting and we decided to stay for two weeks this year. The house is very comfortable for a family with lots of space to enjoy. We loved sitting on the back porch taking in the view, the kitchen has everything you need, lots of space for dining, and a fire pit next to the house. The kids discovered the costume box and had us in stitches dressing up like Anne. Chris was very nice to deal with and even stopped in to say hello.
We love it here!
We love Chrissydale….beautiful view from the deck. Feels like our second home.
Beautiful, idyllic farm landscape!
Home away from home atmosphere!
Enjoyed the relaxing view and cozy country home! Everything we had hoped it would be!
I am so pleased to know you had a great time at Chrissydale cottage and that you loved your stay there
Nice house with three large rooms. This was perfect for this week in PEI. We we're sad to leave...
Well located. The area is very nice and very quiet. It felt like home!
The location and property were stunning! We felt very happy nestled between the potato fields.
It is an older farm house with all that charm. Everything was clean and tidy and the beds were very comfortable. The only down side were a few funny black bugs that came out in the evenings, just on the first few nights (only on the main floor) they were harmless and easily disposed of. It definitely felt like home away from home. Loved it and would highly recommend it.
I am so pleased you had a great stay at Chrissydale cottage!
The black beetles were definitely a problem this year! We intend to have both houses treated prior to our rental season next year. I appreciate your accurate description of these beetle bugs as many guests have compared them to cockroaches, which are not located any place on the island. They are not a pest of the sort as cockroaches as they do not bite and they are not unsanitary, just a nuisance to many!. I appreciate your candor on this subject and again I am so happy you enjoyed your stay!
Chrissydale Cottage is located in the heart of the island close to Kensington in an area known as Long River. It is near a beautiful secluded beach at Cousin's Shore (a five minute drive) . Also, the beach is free, whereas the National Park beach at Cavendish costs $17 a day. Excellent restaurants are a short drive away. And New London Bay with its fishing and lobster fleet is ten minutes away. Privacy, peacefulness, and pastoral beauty are important features of the Chrissydale site. A spacious, tree shaded yard is great for family play. The large deck, with a 'million dollar view' into the community of Long River, is ideal for lounging with your morning coffee and for barbeques (propane grill provided). . For a peaceful, relaxed visit to one of the world's most beautiful islands, this is the perfect spot. Nestled in a valley surrounded by pastures with cows, trees full of singing birds,and freshly plowed fields of grain,wheat or potatoes. This windswept island holds magic in its land. There are many activities for the entire family to enjoy including world class golf courses, excellent dining, theatre, harness racing, casino, and best of all quiet serenity in a private location conveniently located in the heart of the island .
We have an excellent cleaning service and our maintenance person lives right at the end of the road to take care of any problems that may arise.
Cousins shore is the local beach (less than 2 miles away)and it awaits you with pink sand, high cliffs and a meandering fresh water stream which is shallow enough for children to play in (with supervision of course!) and is warmer than the ocean. The stream is usually no more than a foot or 2 deep. Kensington is the closest town and is about 10 minutes away. There are restaurants ,a drug store, liquor store, grocery store, gas stations, and my favorite place Frosty treat! They have the best ice cream there. Summerside is the next closest town and is about 20 minutes away. Charlottetown is the "big city" and it is about 45 minutes away.
