We spent four nights at The Dawson House and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Stacey and Randy were wonderful hosts. They provided us with helpful information daily about activities in the surrounding area, and made us feel like part of the family. The Gold Cup parade was on Friday, and they invited guests to join their family watching the parade. So... More

I was concentrating on hotels and decided to search the B&B section. We came across the Dawson House and booked the room for a night. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted by Randy who made...

My husband Dave and I stayed at the Dawson House B & B for three nights. Stacey and Randy were very friendly and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. We called ahead to inform them we would be arriving later than planned, due to an unexpected problem with our flight. This was NO problem for them... More

This charming B&B is conveniently located about a 20 minute walk from historic Charlottetown. It's in a wonderful old section of town surrounded by houses of the same period. Stacey & Randy were the most amazing hosts for our 4 day stay in PEI. Pointed out the best places to visit and eat. Breakfast was the highlight of the day... More

Stacey and Randy have a beautiful home, clean and comfortable. The location is amazing, walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The breakfasts were delicious and the hosts were so accommodating. We would definitely recommend this to anyone.

I recently came back from a stay at Dawson House for the first time with my mother (who has been there several times). There is a reason she keeps going back!

From the 1st contact with the owners, to the final au revoir, our five night stay was bliss. The old world charm of the property was mixed wonderfully with all the modern amenities one loves on holiday... Breakfasts were delicious, healthy and plentiful! Lovely neighbourhood and lovely hosts!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Dawson House for 7 nights 8 days(May 22-29 in 2015). About kindness. We were from South Korea. Because there was so long distance between Charlottetown and Seoul in Korea, it took 30 hours to get there. Because of our flight schedule, we arrived the Dawson House at 3:30 am, and unfortunately left there... More
