SPRING AWAKENING
 
(2024 - Winter/Spring Issue)

Writer: NANCIE HALL



Off Canada’s windswept easterly mainland on the compact Atlantic isle of Prince Edward Island find a pair of charming indie properties: the five-star Rodd Crowbush Golf & Beach Resort and the four-star Rodd Brudenell River Resort ready to awaken the senses this spring.

Here’s how to revive and recharge with these easy and luxurious island getaways from Rodd Hotels & Resorts, one of Atlantic Canada’s largest privately owned hotel chains.

Spring Fling

A cottage tucked away from the hustle and bustle, a crackling fire and a steamy Jacuzzi are some of the hallmarks for a romantic getaway. At Rodd Crowbush Golf & Beach Resort and Rodd Brudenell River Resort, you’ll get these along with beach walks that are sure to spark your romance. Don’t miss a hand-in-hand stroll along one of PEI’s most beloved beaches, Lakeside Beach. It’s there where the white powder sand, spectacular ocean vistas and the smell of the salty ocean spray combine together for a true sensory experience.

On The Menu

Prince Edward Island is world-renowned for its seafood and spring, according to many Islanders, is the best time of year. Why? The beginning of May signals the launch of lobster season, and you can try this tasty crustacean prepared by creative culinarians in a variety of ways—boiled with butter, cold with lemon, in a chowder, salad or pasta, all served with charming Maritime hospitality. You will want to join the conversation on where to find the best chowder but here’s a hint—David’s Restaurant at Rodd Crowbush Golf & Beach Resort won the PEI Potato Seafood Chowder Championship for two consecutive years.

Birdies & Bogies

If you love golf, you will love the trifecta of aahh-mazing courses that offer days of play. Your first “must” is the Links at Crowbush Cove with its reputation for a serious challenge built into the fairways, bunkers and waterholes with vistas of the dunes at every turn. Dundarave Golf is a red sandstone 18-hole championship course that Golf Digest recommends you “plan your next vacation around,” and the scenic Brudenell River Golf Course is the most popular on the island and rated by SCOREGolf magazine as one of the Top 6 Best Golf Resorts in Canada. Get ready to swing!

Pedal Pushers

If bragging rights are your thing, you can hop on one of the new e-bikes at the resorts and explore all that the eastern end of Prince Edward Island has to offer. The roads are mostly flat and ideal for novice and avid cyclists alike. But why rush it? Soak in the scenery as you ride along backroads, past patchwork quilts of potato fields, through quaint waterfront villages, and beaches buffed with sand dunes. Or use the 273-kilometre Confederation Trail, an old rail trail that runs through the middle of the province, as your guide. The roads are mostly flat and ideal for novices and avid cyclists alike.

Everything you need for a coastal adventure can be arranged at any of the charming properties from Rodd Hotels & Resorts.

Steals & Deals

Get added value at Rodd Hotels & Resorts with a fun-filled family package where children under the age of 16 stay for free. As spring arrives, the award-winning golf courses open with special stay and play packages, and yes, kids golf for free. Couples can make a date for a romantic getaway and make reservations in advance where the longer they stay, the more money they save.
