Enjoy a unique experience at the award winning 5 Star Shipwright Inn. Relax, unwind and take in all that our “Gentle Island” has to offer you with its tranquil beaches, red soil and rolling countryside. The Inn, which is centrally located in Olde Historic Charlottetown, is an elegant Victorian home built in 1865 by Charlottetown shipbuilder, James Phillips Douse, and respects its ship building heritage by emphasizing a nautical theme. Rated as the “Best Bed and Breakfast on Prince Edward Island” and one of the “Top Ten B and B’s in Canada” by Frommer’s Travel Guides, the Inn is a AAA/CAA 3 Diamond approved lodging offering warm, Island hospitality, attentive service and a tradition of pampering its guests.
The Inn has nine unique rooms with nautical period antiques and artwork, which have been collected for your enjoyment. All bedrooms are fully air conditioned with overhead fans and all have polished pine floors, full private bathrooms, some with double Ultra Air Massage Tubs, whirlpools and fireplaces. Complimentary wireless internet is available throughout the Inn along with off street parking.
We offer a full four course breakfast, served in our dining room and prepared by our own Red Seal Certified Chef who is excited to be cooking a locally-sourced menu of classic breakfast dishes.
In the afternoons, when guests return our buffet table is available with a selection of teas, French Press coffee, gourmet hot chocolate, pop and homemade lemonade along with a selection of delicious cakes.
Guests may wish to sip a complimentary beverage and relax in the quiet atmosphere of the parlour, the rustic games room or under the old oak tree in the beautiful English style garden.
The accommodation is well appointed but not intimidating and has all the benefits of a luxury hotel and so much more.
