Prince Edward Island is famous for our large populations of Great Blue Herons. The Blue Heron stands about 4 feet tall and has a wing span of roughly 6 feet. The Blue Heron can reach flying speeds of 32 to 48 kilometres per hour. They can be seen throughout the Island in and around rivers or quiet shorelines with trees close by. Their long, narrow legs make it easy for them to fish motionlessly in fresh and salt water.
Blue Herons typically arrive in March and stay until the fall. The Blue Heron TreePOD is open from April until October. It is a 425 square foot TreePOD (geodesic dome) that perches 9 feet up in the trees sitting on a large deck that surrounds the entire dome. This TreePOD is beautifully decorated with accents and special touches that are inspired by the Blue Heron.
The Blue Heron TreePOD has a fully equipped kitchen that includes a fridge, a free standing stove, and of course a coffee maker. It also contains all of the dishes, cutlery, glasses, pots, and pans that you will need. This TreePOD has a beautiful 4 piece bathroom complete with a tub/shower, a relaxing one bedroom with a queen size bed, and a small living space containing a small sectional couch that turns into a double bed. There is a large bay window that wraps around the kitchen and living room to allow the enchanting woods to feel as though it is in the TreePOD with you, without having to leave the comfort of the couch.
Although the Blue Heron TreePOD is only 425 square feet on the inside, it has a large wrap around deck which enlarges the living space, while bringing the outdoors in. The outside area features your own private hot tub. Imagine relaxing in the tub after a wonderful day of hiking and exploring beautiful PEI. The large outside area also has a barbecue and seating area, great for eating outside, while embracing nature.
Blue Herons nest together, which is called colonies. On PEI, the average colony is 74 nests. They build stick nests up in the tops of trees close to the river or shoreline. The nearby Tryon River is a great place to observe these majestic birds.
The Blue Heron TreePOD is open from May until October. Pets and smoking are not allowed.
