Welcome to this historic, one of a kind homestead nestled in the peaceful North Shore community of Seaview. Only minutes away from our world class beaches and coastline between Malpeque and French River. This is the original Prince Edward Island home of John Sinclair Sutherland, who arrived to the Island from Scotland in the early 1840's. Over the years, renowned author Lucy Maud Montgomery spent significant time here while visiting her relatives.
