But that's OK. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were checked in by one of waitresses. There are 4 rooms on the second level and our room was very spacious and the bed very comfortable. Though there was no one to really give us some tips on what to do in the area early on, that was OK with us....

As a first time user of a Bed and Breakfast Facility, I'm happy to say I would definitely try them again. The room was lovely, our waitress was a very nice, friendly girl and the breakfast was very good..........especially the freshly baked cinnamon buns! We would certainly return, and would recommend to friends :)

When we arrived at the Visitor Center in Prince Edward Island, we learned that there was a Shania Twain concert in Charlottetown, and that all the hotels, hostels, and inns were filling fast. We could not find a place that night (the night before the concert), so we headed to the west, hoping to find something away from the capital....

Went for an evening meal at this restaurant. first class food and service.. Nice setting and Reasonably priced. All the people in our group agreed that their meal was good and the seafood is amazing. I will go back again on my next visit to Canada.

We decided to stay here while we were cycling the confederation trail. This bed and breakfast is about 200 meters off the trail so it's easily found and quite convenient. We were glad we stayed here, everything about this place was more than you could ask for. After a long day of cycling we were greeted by a very friendly...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Our room (#3) was comfortable, clean, spacious. The staff was super friendly and welcoming. Everything was just great. We also found Kensington to be a convenient central location to lots of activities. One of the highlights was breakfast -- so good! Every morning, we sat on their sun porch and had pastries, coffee and...

My wife and I stayed for a couple of nights as part of a driving tour of PEI. We chose the Home Place Inn primarily because of its proximity to the venue for the Indian River Festival. Wherever we go, stay, or eat, we usually ask ourselves the question; "would we come back"? In the case of the Home Place...

I had a lovely stay over 3 nights and used the location to access the west and central provinces of PEI. Easy to find, short walk into 'town'. Convenience of a restaurant on site, not noisy at night and also quiet from road noise. Relatively large rooms, ensure with a bath and robes provided. Breakfast was lovely. Glenda and her...

We spent a relaxing 2 nights at the home place recently. The rooms are lovely; comfortable beds, nice linens, bathrobes, updated bathroom. Glenda goes out of her way to make your stay enjoyable. The house smells amazing as the restaurant is just downstairs and the food is incredible. Thanks for a wonderful stay, Glenda!

Many of the family's original furnishings, antiques, photographs and oil paintings, painted by Orr family descendants, hang proudly on our walls. A large veranda on the front of the house is available for "old fashion" relaxing ... more   less
