We do not bring the dishwasher, washer, dryer or vacuum into the Dream Cottage in case the winner takes the $3000 in lieu of the Additional Appliances package, but the plumbing and electrics are ready for the appliances.

Tag your ticket with the furniture tag, and you will have the choice of the furnished cottage or the $65,000.

No, with the furniture tag, you can take the furnished cottage or the $65,000.
Q. Will you move the cottage?
We will move the Dream Cottage anywhere on PEI. The winner will need something to put the cottage on (foundation, sauna tubes, etc) and a way for the truck to get down to the work site. Please note: there is an additional cost if a crane is needed to move the Dream Cottage onto a foundation
Q. What happens if the winner takes the money?
We will sell the cottage. Within 10 days of the draw, we will run ads which include a minimum bid and deadline to make your bid. We open all of the bids at once (at Property Guys) and the person who has the highest bid will get the furnished cottage which will be moved and set up on their property as part of the sale. Please note: if you are making a bid, you must check for any covenants on your property that would prevent you from putting the Dream Cottage on your site. If you would like to put your name on a list to be contacted if we are selling the cottage, please contact Heather at email@example.com
Q. If I win the cottage, can I sell it?
Yes, but it would be risky (which is why we offer a cash option). The cottage still has to be off the lot by October 31st. The winner will not be able to get insurance, which means we will have to retain insurance. In practical terms, that means that a staff member will have to open the cottage every time you want to show it.
Q. What happens if the winner doesn’t have a tagged ticket?
We will award the Dream Cottage to the winner, and pull a second ticket for the Furniture and Additional Appliances tags. We will continue to draw tickets until all of the prizes are awarded.

Yes, there are 4 Early Bird prizes which include $5000 (May), Draws for Dad including a $1000 gift card sponsored by Desjardins Financial Security (June), Summer Fun Prizes including a Yardworks 46-inch Lawn Tractor from Canadian Tire Charlottetown (July) and a WestJet Gift of Flight Voucher (August).

We cannot change a tag once a ticket has been sold.

Yes, when you purchase a tag it goes on all 3 or all 5 tickets.
Q. Can I put the tickets in a business name?
We would caution against doing this as everyone who works at the business would be entitled to share the prize.
Q. Do I have to put a proper name on my ticket?
Yes, because we need to be able to legally determine who has won the prize
Q. Can I put more than one name on a ticket?
Yes, as long as everyone is at least 19 years old. Something to keep in mind - We can only talk to the winners listed on the ticket, so a couple might want to put both names on their ticket.
