This B&B is as good as it gets. We stayed three nights in the Master Suite which was huge with a private balcony. Bathroom was large with all sorts of extra touches and a nice jacuzzi. There are three large "lounges" where you can sit, watch TV, read, listen to music or just chill, look across the harbour to Charlottetown... More

Wow! Where to start! Shirley makes your stay memorable. You arrive as strangers and leave as family. Shirley is super nice, full of knowledge of the local area and can give you some helpful suggestions. Breakfast is fabulous but very relaxed. The views from her B&B are worth the stay but then when you see your accommodations you won’t want... More

What a wonderful B&B Shirley has. The view over the water which comes right up to the garden is beautiful. The house itself has been lovingly restored and is a lovely place to stay. We stayed in the Master Suite which overlooked the water, had its own deck, was really spacious with a seating area, an extremely comfortable bed, a... More

A friend and I spent two days and nights exploring PEI and enjoyed coming "home" to our cozy yet luxurious room. Shirley was so lovely, welcoming and helpful in letting us know the best places to eat and explore. Would love to stay again on my next trip out East!

First stay in a B&B and I'm guessing I've been spoiled for all others... The Boathouse B&B that Shirley and David have created is a true dream in every aspect of what one might expect from a B&B.

We just recently stayed at the Boathouse B&B for two nights. We could not possibly have had a better experience anywhere else on the island. Shirley is a fantastic host as she is somebody who truly cares about her guests. She is more than happy to chat extensively with her guests to find out their interests and make wonderful recommendations.... More
