Prince Edward Island is all about history. This well-kept heritage house fits in perfectly. Much better for a stay in Charlottetown than booking at a hotel.
Just because it's a heritage house doesn't mean it lacks amenities. Each room has an air conditioner and there is free wireless Internet access. Free computer access on the terrace, where you'll find the library and DVDs for viewing in your room. We booked well ahead and got the front room upstairs with the bay window. A common kitchen area has canned beverages for $1 (honour system) as well as complimentary cookies.
Breakfast is different each day, and while the portions are not large, they are very skilfully made. A hot dish such as quiche or an omelette is served with fresh fruit, and you can have cereal, toast, muffins, bagels, or other baked goods if you're still hungry. The portions were fine for me.
The neighbourhood is very quiet so you'll have no trouble sleeping. The only noise is from the air conditioner if you choose to use it. It's close enough to the major highways that you'll get to where you're going quickly, but not so close that you can hear the traffic. Not that there's much traffic in Charlottetown. You can walk to the downtown area from here in 10 minutes.
Everything was impeccably clean and the staff were very friendly and quick to help. When the wireless Internet conked out late in the evening, they called someone after hours to fix it. If I were staying in Charlottetown again, I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else.
