Why we love June in P.E.I.

  1. Peace & Solitude. There are not as many tourists around which makes it a great time to be one!
  2. Easy Adventuring. Less tourists mean less traffic and no traffic jams. P.E.I.’s roads are yours to explore.
  3. Budget-Friendly! We strongly recommend anyone traveling on a tight budget to travel during low season (June, late September and October). These months are just as beautiful but at a fraction of the price. There are still many businesses, awesome activities and exciting events that are open during low season and we are happy to help you plan your itinerary!
  4. Spontaneity. The perfect month to embrace the unknown (and the unpredictable June weather). Do you spot a seat sale? Or even better, do you live within driving distance of PEI? Now is the time to grab a great deal and take Northumberland Ferries from Nova Scotia or the Confederation Bridge from New Brunswick to the island. Bring your bathing suit, a rain jacket AND a sweater – if you’re lucky you’ll get to experience true PEI – all different kinds of weather packed into one month!
  5. Abundance. Farmers’ Markets are  bursting with the best of delicious local food and the Spring lobster season is in full swing!
  6. The Colour Green. Rain or Shine – the island is at its most verdant in June. Island winters are often very harsh so Spring can be slow (or non-existent). June is when everything suddenly comes to life. This explosion of green has likened PEI to the Emerald Isle itself! Indeed there was more than one reason that the island was at one time going to be called New Ireland. The rush is on for us to recover from the winter; paint, polish, pull-out the BBQs, cut grass, landscape, and plant flowers at the Banbridge. As you explore PEI you’ll see islanders all doing the same. Being a largely agricultural province June brings with it an explosion of green, busy farmers and happy islanders.

Fall Harvest Hamper

In the spirit of Prince Edward Island’s Fall Flavours Festival we are offering Banbridge guests the opportunity to savour the very best of local, seasonal, organic produce.

The great thing about our Apartments is that they have a wonderfully well-equipped kitchen complete with everything you need to make meals. Not only is this a very cost-effective way of traveling but its also the perfect opportunity to indulge in island fare.

Cooking while traveling may not be for everyone but if you want to experience excellent local food in the privacy of your apartment at a fraction of the cost of dining out or if you simply enjoy the process of cooking a delicious meal with local ingredients,¬† this is the package for you! (For guests who’ve sworn to stay away from the stove while on vacation we have great recommendations for dining-out or take-in)!

Our Fall Harvest Hamper is available to any guests who book an apartment direct (on our website or over the phone). When booking select or mention Fall Harvest and the additional cost of the hamper ($15) will be added to your reservation. Upon arrival you will find a beautiful hamper of scrumptious island produce in your apartment refrigerator.
