“Great Stay!”
Reviewed 24 October 2011

We booked this Inn as part of a corporate getaway. I can honestly say that I was more than impressed. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The food was amazing, something I didn't quite expect. The breakfasts were more than I would have expected, and the owners went out of their way to work around the food allergies in our family. They took the time to get to know each of us by name, and on the second morning could recall our names, and our coffee/tea preferences. The Inn isn't all that far a walk from downtown, and it is very quiet at night. I would go back again, and somehow I get a feeling that they will remember me when I do.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Premier's Room...nice air tub...fireplace (real, not gas), with a sitting room...

Had a wonderful weekend at the Elmwood. First class service in a very unique, victorian setting. Jack and Carol were fantastic hosts and were very accomodating to all of the groups needs. Would recommend the Elmwood to any prospective travellers to Charlottetown.

Carol and Jay make you feel at home. The furnishings and the atmosphere made my PEI trip every thing I had hoped. Anne of Green Gables would feel right at home.
I absolutely recommend this marvelous place.

My wife and I stayed for a week at Elmwood the 1st part of September 2011 but really didn't wish to leave Carol and Jay's beautiful home that fateful Saturday morning after our Friday night, Royal Seating "Buddy Holly" show organized by Carol before our arrival.

We stayed in both the Nurse's Room and the Cunard Suite during our visit and report that they are both meticulously appointed and most inviting and comfortable in their own way. The dining room is indeed grand matched by the wonderful table settings you are greeted with each morning followed by the delicious offerings, especially the "puff" ! It is certainly a pleasure to have an unhurried, leisurely breakfast while chatting with new friends and planning your day's activities.
Carol and Jay are 1st class, gracious hosts and and their kindness and hospitality reflects that in every way. Their restored, historic home is incredible and we felt proud to be a part of it even though it was all too brief.
However, we shall certainly return as soon as possible for a repeat performance...a 5 star but we give the Elmwood a 6 !!!

There's always a bit of chance when choosing a B & B - no chain reputation or record to rely on - which adds to the fun of discovering the perfect one. We did, at the Elmwood.

Jay and Carol are wonderful, welcoming, hosts who put us in the "Library", an antique-filled room on the main floor of their Victorian-era mansion. If the bedroom portrayed that era, the large bathroom did not. The shower was complete with additional horizontal jets that made for a unique kick start to the morning. The bathtub, with its array of air jets, was imposing but untried by us.

Carol's breakfasts in the charming Victorian dining room were spectacular: lots of fresh fruit, fancy home-made breads that catered wonderfully to my Austrian heritage, and once a memorable breakfast souffle!

The inn is set well back from the street in a residential neighbourhood, so noise is not a factor. It is a 20-minute stroll to the heart of Charlottetown, where we followed Carol and Jay's advice to find excellent restaurants. And they provided lots of thoughtful little touches, such as a fridge in our room with an ambitious ice-maker, and the provision by Jay of his annual National Parks pass that gave us free access to the lovely - and empty - beaches.

We've stayed at a number of B & B's on three continents; the Elmwood tops our list.

Carol and Jay are great hosts who go the extra mile to ensure that their guests are well informed about local attractions and enjoy their stay. Their charming period inn feels like a home where you are made welcome. Its location is ideal being about 10 minutes walk from the water and downtown but far enough away to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Leisurely, relaxing breakfasts are a holiday treat and Elmwood does them to a T. The breakfasts are one of the pleasures of a visit being beautifully cooked and presented; second helpings offered (and gratefully accepted) - a great start to a day's sightseeing. This Inn deserves its outstanding accolades and has earned every star.
