Welcome to the Enmore River in Prince Edward Island!
Welcome to the Riverside Loft! We are located on the Enmore River in western Prince Edward Island, approximately 2km from the mouth of Egmont Bay and the Northumberland Strait of the Atlantic Ocean. Known for its world-class oysters, the Enmore River is generally a peaceful waterway.
If you love canoeing or kayaking, the Enmore River is renowned for its paddling routes. As our guests, you have access to a canoe, kayaks and a paddleboat for your river adventures. Heading northeast (inland) on the river, you will venture into the interior of the island. There are several tributaries to explore once you paddle under the Enmore Road bridge. To the west, the river is approximately 2km from Egmont Bay. You may find some sand bars along the way to “beach” your kayak and take a swim! The vast waterway of the bay may be considered more perilous as it is the body of water that connects to the Northumberland Strait. The Enmore River is a tidal river - whose flow and level are influenced by tides. Tides affect water levels and current speeds in rivers as they approach the ocean. One MUST be vigilant to the times and levels of the tide. Your access to the river and its banks are subsequently diminished in low tide.
We also have bicycles for you to explore the beautiful red roads of Prince Edward Island.
If you just want to sit and relax, you can enjoy the spectacular river view from your private, second-story wrap around deck. There's a perfect spot to sit in an adirondack chair and take that deep breath.

Where to find us
Capital City Guests "Kim and Mike were terrific hosts. They thought of everything and it was a perfect place to quarantine and stay for 2 more weeks. So much room indoors and out. Walks through woods, fields and shoreline. Birds and frogs to listen to. We enjoyed looking out at the water from the deck. Amazing base to explore Western PEI. Thank you!!" Wendy and Glen
Our guests from "The Rock!" "The best place we ever stayed. Would love to come back. Anyone wanting to spend a lovely weekend, I would recommend this place 100%". Judy and Howard S. Our first Feedback! "As the first guest at The Riverside Loft, I am happy to say I was overwhelmed by how smoothly my stay here went. I was isolating here for 14 days, coming from NB. Kim and Mike made my stay feel just like I was coming home. They are what you expect from islanders, always willing to lend a hand and would do anything to make your life a little easier. What I imagined would be a long 2 weeks, flew by as I had everything I could imagine here in the loft. The loft has a beautiful kitchen, dining area, TV room, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and not to mention a beautiful view. The loft is incredibly cozy and comfortable, Kim and Mike have truly put their heart into this loft and it shows. " Hayley H.
