Wow best describes this B & B located near Charlottetown. Incredible room and staff. Large spotlessly clean room done up to perfection from the past. Charming, quiet with a great location to local shopping, pubs and restaurants. I think this was my favorite place of all time to stay in.

When we got there we were given a tour and told about local restaurants where we could eat that night. The room was...

We loved the Shipwright Inn. Trevor and Judy are terrific at making sure every little detail is attended to and guests are made to feel welcome. An easy walk about town, the location is perfect on a secluded residential street. But it's just 3 blocks from Victoria Street and wonderful restaurants as well as an easy stroll about the wharf...

We stayed in this charming Bed and Breakfast for four nights. Great location, just a few blocks away from downtown Charlottetown where you can find boutiques, restaurants & pubs.
