Located in Bellevue, Prince Edward Island we are just outside Belfast. Convienly located 15 minutes from Montague and 10 minutes from Murray River, the Points East Coast Coastal Drive area has some real gems to visit while enjoying your stay at Bens Lake. We’d love to share a few of our favourite nearby gems.
Copper bottom brewery
Copper Bottom Brewing is a craft brewery owned by husband and wife team Ashley Condon & Ken Spears, both of whom share a passion for craft beer and music that spans more than a decade.
Their passion for craft beer started in 2003, when Ken was hired to sell six-packs out of the back door of Propeller Brewing in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Over the next 14 years, Ken would spend his time developing recipes and turning his brewing obsession into a plan to open a craft brewery in Montague, now known as Copper Bottom Brewing.
Together, the husband and wife duo remain firmly rooted in the belief that building a brewery is just as important as building a community gathering spot; somewhere locals can gather, meet new friends, and experience world-class entertainment - all while enjoying a good, honest beer.
Chef Terry Narbuurs is a Islander who’s come home after living away and has been working hard to establish one of the best reactants on the Point East Drive. The Wheelhouse is a seafood restaurant in Georgetown, Prince Edward Island. Featuring local produce as well as fresh seafood from local fishermen. The blueberries on our dessert menu, and throughout the menu, are all grown on Terry’s farm.
