My wife and I spent a week cycling on PEI's Confederation Trail and Beside the Trail B&B was the final stop on our trip. Due to a rainstorm we arrived in the morning, but Cindy and Guy welcomed us without missing a beat, showed us to our room and made us comfortable. Cindy gave us a lift to a bank... More

They serve a glass of cereal, yogurt, and fruits as an appetizer at breakfast. They post photos of these "fruit cups" on their facebook page and you can see that the ones they served to other guests had a glassful of ingredients with a mountain of fruits on top. I saw these pictures before visiting this B&B and was very... More

I stayed for 5 nights while visiting the island for work. I found Cindy & Guy welcoming. The room & bathroom meet all my needs & were comfortable, especially the bed & pillows. Everyday the breakfast was on time and enjoyable. I would if the need arose stay again and recommend this B&B.

My friend and I cycled to Charlottetown from Wood Islands and expecting that we may not be at Trailside between the check-in times of 2-4 pm, I emailed Cindy beforehand. She was very accommodating and let us know what to do if we arrived late and they had stepped out. When we arrived, we found Cindy and Guy to be... More

Thanks Beth for your kind words. While we have a fixed check-in time, we can easily accommodate guests who advise us ahead of time of their arrival plans. We enjoy being on the Confederation Trail and being able to provide services to cyclists. Guy More

Sadly, staying at this B&B was the worst experience during our 6 day trip in PEI. If we didn't stay there, our trip must have been perfect, because everyone I encountered in PEI was very nice and accommodating except Cindy and Guy. Unfortunately I made a reservation before reading reviews on tripadvisor. Since they charge at least $50 for cancellations,... More

We came in for tea today without a reservation. Upon looking back on the website I realize without a reservation you can only get scones or what's on the lunch menu for the day - not Anne's or Grandma's afternoon tea menus/packages. We were told they don't have the supplies for any walk-ins to order those items. It's fun to... More

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to make your visit to the Island one to remember. It is so important to be clear these days and not to give out in correct information and we try. Perhaps when looking at our web page you looked at the menu items and missed the bold lettering at the top of the... More

This is the most charming Bed and Breakfast I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Located alongside the Confederation trail, this is the perfect spot for anybody looking to have a nice night away. The rooms were immpecably clean and the breakfast was delicious. Cindy and Guy also had a map of the Island and some information packs... More

Where do I even begin? Guy and Cindy are two of the kindest, heart warming, lovely hosts I have met. They were very easy going and made us feel at home. They made us a filling breakfast in the morning and I wish I could have stayed longer, honestly! It's conveniently placed right beside the confederation trail which goes right... More

I just returned from one of the most enjoyable vacations I have had in a long time. Part of the reason was the quaint, relaxing, pleasant stay at this Bed & Breakfast.

This is the worst review I've ever written, but it was a mistake to stay here. When we arrived, the owners weren't home, and we moved into our room cheerfully. Walking around, we found the place clean, attractive, with beautiful gardens, and clever decorating by the mistress. The trouble started when the owners got home. Without a greeting, we were...

You arrived past our normal check-in times. However, we had made arrangements for a selfe-serve entry. As we often have family obligations in the evening, this is a normal course of business for us and reflects the friendly, trusting nature of our operations. You say the trouble started when we got home. Perhaps it did. Put your self in our... More
