In 2004, a vision was created to form The Country Gardens Foundation of Hope, Inc. large part of its vision is to build a “Respite Cottage” within the Gardens of Hope located in New Glasgow, PEI. These spacious 12 acre gardens were created for Islanders and visitors alike to enjoy the natural beauty of Prince Edward Island. An old Catholic Chapel called St. Joseph's , located at the entrance to the National Park in Cavendish, was moved to its present location within the Gardens of Hope.
The Purpose of The Respite Cottage
Our hope and prayer is that the garden setting of the Respite Cottage will allow those who visit or stay to be ministered to by nature's beauty.
The cottage provides a warm and comfortable environment. It is a space designed for peace and tranquility.
