We came to The Dawson House somewhat by accident, as the B&B where we had originally booked was unable to accomodate us so they made arrangements for us to stay with Stacey and Randy at The Dawson House. What a fantastic experience it was, from start to finish! We were greeted warmly on our arrival, shown around the guest areas, then taken upstairs to a beautifully decorated yet comfortable room, complete with queen-sized bed, color TV and a jacuzzi tub. The bed was comfy and the jacuzzi tub most welcome after a day of exploring PEI. The attention to detail was wonderful, down to the fluffy bath mat and the box of quality tissues (not the cheap stuff you find in hotels) on the dressing table.
And then there were the breakfasts! Each morning as we went downstairs, we felt like Bugs Bunny in the old cartoons, wafting along on a wonderful smell. The breakfast selection included fresh grapefruit, yogurt, croissants, juices and cereals, along with a different main course each morning -- bacon and eggs cooked the way we liked them, quiche, pancakes (a choice of plain or apple cinnamon) and freshly baked bread, including Stacey's awesome banana bread. We were offered coffee or tea; I asked if there was any milk because I like a glass of milk with breakfast, and a pitcher of milk was put out that morning and each morning of our stay. The dining room table was beautifully set and everywhere was spotlessly clean.
I could go on and on but suffice it to say that our stay at The Dawson House could not have been better. Stacey and Randy are gracious and friendly hosts who are to share their knowledge of the area and the island with their guests. We feel like we have made new friends. We highly recommend The Dawson House and wouldn't stay anywhere else.
