Our Story

Let me introduce ourselves. We’re Kenny & Tracey Singleton, the recently new owners of Cavendish Bosom Buddies Cottages & Suites. I am the daughter of Ron and Ada Peters who previously owned the cottages. We also are parents of 8 year old triplets: two boys MacKenzie & Matt and our little girl Lexie. As a family you’ll see us walking to the beach, cycling at Cavendish Grove or just hanging by the pool, the playground or evening campfire.

HISTORY – Ron & Ada Peters (1988-2012)

Are you familiar with the story of Anne of Green Gables? My Mom, Ada Peters, certainly was. In fact, it was Mom’s love for the precocious red-headed orphan that inspired the name. The friendship between Anne Shirley and her best friend Diana Barry became the inspiration for the name Cavendish Bosom Buddies Cottages & Suites when it opened in 1988.

It is a fitting title for this Cavendish retreat where guests arrive as strangers and leave as friends. With their 4 children (Rhonda, Tracey, Michelle and Brodie), Mom and Dad (Ron Peters) operated the family business together until 2003. With Mom’s passing in 2003, Dad continued the tradition until the summer of 2012.

Mom and Dad’s reputation was built on 3 pillars: genuine Island hospitality, friendly service and immaculately clean accommodations.

CONTINUING A FAMILY TRADITION – Tracey & Kenny Singleton (2013)

Singleton Kids

In 2013, Kenny and I took over the family business. I guess you could say it runs in the family. From my parents, I have learned first hand how to run a successful business and have also developed a love and appreciation for the Island’s vibrant tourism industry.

I attained a Bachelor Degree in Tourism & Hospitality Management from Mount Saint Vincent University in Nova Scotia and have spent my entire career working in tourism and hospitality in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Kenny also has a passion for business and tourism; operating our parent company PEI Dream Cottages Inc. for the past ten years.

Our latest entrepreneurial endeavor is a sentimental one as we now continue the legacy that began over 25 years ago with my parents, Ada and Ron Peters. Now parents ourselves, Bosom Buddies has taken on a whole new meaning which reflects the strong bond, connection and friendship that binds our triplet children.

We look forward to welcoming vacationers, returning and new. We also will continue to be a gathering place for our family and friends that spent many a weekend at my parent’s cottages together. The second generation Cavendish Bosom Buddies is a place where Kindred Spirits come together to connect, rejuvenate and create new and lasting memories.

Yours in hospitality,

Tracey, Kenny, MacKenzie, Matt & Lexie
