Indian River Fundraiser: Summer House Tour

On Saturday, July 18th, the Indian River Festival will host the third edition of its fundraising Summer House Tour. Participants will have the opportunity to visit a variety of stunning locations along Prince Edward Island’s central-north shore between 11:00am and 4:00pm. Grab some friends, and join us for a fun afternoon in support of the Indian River Festival!

The tour will feature six locations including private homes, a B&B, and the festival’s newly constructed outdoor pavilion.

The Old Millpond B&B in Clinton, circa 1875-85, was built by Alexander Smith with lumber that was milled on the property. The house includes a peaceful front porch where guests of the B&B participate in “porch-sitting”.

The Sisam House in Seaview, owned by architects David and Elizabeth Sisam, is truly stunning. Its distinctive roofline features two pavilions that branch out from a central dining area. Each main room is impeccably furnished with collections of folk-art, antique quilts and colorful pottery and all feature beautiful views to the seashore, the pond and the surrounding farmland.

According to local folklore, the home of Anne-Marie Leroux once housed the midwife who delivered Lucy Maud Montgomery. Built in 1868, this home was Memories gift shop and later the General Store in New London. Purchased in 2011, it has been carefully renovated and furnished to retain the original character and charm of the home, and featured in East Coast Living Magazine.

The church that was home to Annie’s Table and Culinary Studio was extensively renovated in 2011 to accommodate the culinary studio for three summers, while still preserving the building’s distinctive architectural features. Gaining local and international notoriety, this New London establishment was described by the Toronto Star as “spectacularly decorated with exquisite taste”.

The Paton House, located in Stanley Bridge, is a blue-colored century farmhouse, which includes a bunk house, and entertainment facility/ dance studio on site. Previous owners include Don Harron and Catherine MacKinnon.

Finally, the Outdoor Pavilion is the newest edition to the Indian River Festival experience. Designed by David Sisam of Montgomery Sisam Architects, the pavilion's open concept provides views of the beautiful Malpeque Bay countryside, while visitors enjoy refreshments from its fully functional kitchen and bar. The pavilion’s licenced area will be open for the event!
