My host greeted me upon arrival and showed me around the home. The home is pleasing from the outside. It is across from a park. 3 or 4 blocks (5-8min) from the waterfront and all the action. The location was perfect. My room was mid-sized with a daybed. The bed was a full or queen and very comfortable. Breakfast which was continental was served promptly at 8am. Breakfast included muffins, scones, cereal or oatmeal, toast , jelly or jam and tea or coffee and or juice.
There were 2 rooms on my side of the house with a shared bath, and 2 rooms on the other side. The tub was huge. A challenge at first going in and out. But OK after the initial trial. I came and left out freely being mindful of my noise level. The floors creek when walking-- so, step lightly. There is a day room / TV room on the first level with cable. A kitchen with microwave for the guest to use. A quaint home with embroidery and mementos everywhere.
This was my first experience with a bed and breakfast, and I was not disappointed. My host was very accommodating . My experience was memorable...The only thing I would change is having a private bath. I felt safe in PEI and at the B&B. I was given 2 keys (bedroom and house) and freedom to come and go. I would recommend this place to anyone, old and young.
A good location to eat is at the corner of Water and Prince street ($), which is the name of the restaurant. The locals and tourist eat there. Plus the price is reasonable. Gahan ($-$$), Fishbone's ($-$$) and Sims($$-$$$) are also a great places to eat .
Yes, I plan on returning to PEI and Heart's Content B&B.
