The Award-Winning 5 Star Shipwright Inn Bed and Breakfast is centrally located in the historic district of Olde Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, “The Gentle Island”. The gay-friendly Inn has been 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, rated 9.5 out of 10 by Booking.com guests, and gained a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor.
The Canadian Register of Historic Places states that “In an area with a great number of beautiful heritage homes, the Shipwright Inn is a fine and well preserved example of the Maritime Vernacular Cottage style and plays an important role in maintaining the heritage ambiance of the streetscape. ”
This elegant Victorian home built in 1865 respects its ship building heritage by emphasizing a nautical theme. The Inn features numerous original period antiques and artwork which pay homage to the building’s association with the Island’s shipbuilding past.
With nine uniquely decorated rooms, all with full private bathrooms and fully air conditioned, the Inn can accommodate up to 25 guests and is open year round. The nine rooms include three executive suites with double ultra-air massage tubs and a self contained apartment with private entry and fully fitted kitchen. The Inn has both the luxury of off street parking as well as beautiful English gardens and decking. In addition to the guest rooms there is a large open dining room, a parlour, games room with a piano and a business centre.
Our accommodation is well appointed but not intimidating and has all the benefits of an hotel and so much more. Quiet and safe. Convenient location, walk to everything in town. Fine dining, shopping, the boardwalk, waterfront, cultural activities and the Confederation Centre of the Arts are all within easy walking distance as are walking and biking trails.
We provide off street parking and are a smoke free home. Given PEI’s small size and its 30 golf courts, you can play a round of golf and still have plenty of time for touring, dining, beaches, Anne of Green Gables attractions, lighthouses, seal watching, Provincial and National Parks, heritage roads, historic villages, antique and craft shopping.
After a “busy” day of golf, swimming or shopping, you may wish to sip a glass of your wine in the quiet atmosphere of the parlour, the rustic games room or under the old oak tree. If you have time to browse, you will discover old books and artifacts related to the sea and be introduced to the unique experience of the Victorian “whimsy”. Experience the enjoyment of staying in Historic Olde Charlottetown whilst being pampered at the Shipwright Inn with warm Island hospitality and attentive service.
Please feel free to contact us at the Shipwright Inn. We will be happy to discuss why you should choose our 5 star bed and breakfast in Charlottetown, PEI as your vacation accommodations. We pride ourselves on providing great service to all of our guests.
