PEI Real Estate - Montague “The Beautiful”, as the name suggests; is one of the prettiest towns on the Island. Montague is graced with a tranquil river, lovely tree-lined streets and stately homes, and is a wonderful environment for residents and visitors alike.
The Town of Montague is located along the Heritage Montague River in what used to be known as Township Lots 52 and 59. Montague’s location, in the heart of Kings County, also makes it a regional centre of business and commerce, an excellent place for investment. It lies approximately six miles upstream from Cardigan Bay, allowing for easy access by water to the Northumberland Strait and the Atlantic Ocean. The Montague River, bisecting the town from North to South, provides excellent small port access for transport, fishing and recreation, as well as enhancing the town's scenic beauty. The town of Montague is located along the Heritage Montague River, with the Montague branch, of the Confederation Trail, originating at the waterfront, in the town centre.
Kings County is the eastern most county of Prince Edward Island, and Montague lies considerably south of the main body of the Province. Its geographic position is in close proximity to the provincial capital, Charlottetown, and various important centres in Kings County has contributed strongly to its growth and development. The town is divided almost evenly by highway route #4, which runs in a north-south direction, linking it to many of the outlying communities.
Montague has a very good selection of retail and service businesses. There are schools in the town for all grade levels and Holland College has a presence in the town, for adult advanced learning. There is a well equipped fitness centre, wellness center/rink, library, hospital, doctor’s offices, dentist, and most church denominations are represented in the area.
The surrounding area is also quite picturesque, and has been termed the "Hills and Harbours" area by the Province's tourist authority. It is characterized by rolling countryside, peaceful rivers, picturesque beaches and vibrant colours: the pristine white of winter snow, the brilliant violet of the Lupines that line the roadways in spring, the green of the summer grass and fields, and the kaleidoscope of hues in the autumn leaves. Our back roads maintain the same colour throughout the year - the famous rich red which is characteristic of the Island. Much of the land is used for agricultural purposes, though there is a substantial amount of woodland, allowing for hiking, camping and bird- watching.
