Our stay at Dawson House was wonderful! The home is absolutely lovely - a mixture of antiques and modern conveniences. Randy helped with our suitcases (thank you so much) and both he and Stacey were warm and gracious hosts. We didn't feel like guests, more like family. It was great hearing about their lives and family members one evening by... More

We could not have asked for a more comfortable place to stay during our recent visit to PEI. Randy and Stacey were excellent hosts, the house was immaculate with elegant furnishings, the grounds were beautifully decorated with flowers and included a sparkling pool with a sunny deck, and the breakfasts were outstanding. Moreover, all of the fun times, interesting adventures,... More

Stayed at the Best Western the first night we arrived in Charlottetown PEI. Quite pricey for the 4 nights we wanted to stay. Decided to look for a B & B and was so glad we chose The Dawson House. Innkeepers Stacy and Randy were just so hospitable and friendly. Our room was just lovely, very clean, comfortable beds. Stacy... More

From the moment we walked in the door we felt like we were at home. Our host Randy was excellent carrying our luggage up to our room and then spent time talking to us about their home and city. The next morning we were welcomed at breakfast by Stacey (Randy's better half) and enjoyed an excellent breakfast. If you are... More

My sister and I had the most wonderful time in Charlottetown and our stay at Dawson's was the icing on the cake! The staff were great fun and our rooms were beautifully kept and well looked after. We always looked forward to breakfast and Dawson's was a great place of rest after sightseeing all day. We would definitely stay at... More

This was our first B&B for both of us as well as my boyfriend's first visit to the East Coast. Stacey, Randy and Dawson made us feel like family. Their hospitality was typical of the East Coast and we can't wait to see them on future visits. The French toast and banana muffins were delicious our first day and eggs... More

We had a wonderful time here. Friendly and very helpful host with an excellent breakfast. The room was cosy and clean, the location excellent and the dog, also called Dawson, was also very friendly and happy to see everyone. We couldn't recommend this place more, and if we're ever in Charlottetown again, there's no question that we'll stay here.

First of all, I have stayed in numerous hotels, hostels, motels, cabins, huts around the world and there is truly nothing more cozy than a Bed and Breakfast. Having said that, I had a wonderful opportunity to stay at The Dawson House for New Year's Eve 2013. Although we were fortunate to book the 'bridal suite', ALL of the rooms... More

We are so happy we stayed at the Dawson House. Everything from the super clean and comfortable rooms, beautiful house all decorated for the season, to the fantastic hot breakfasts, chatting with hosts Stacey and Randy, to the WiFi everywhere, and more we really loved everything about the Dawson House. We highly recommend.

My wife and I are retirees and have decided to visit all of Canada. We decided last September (2013) to visit PEI and stayed a week there as we did not want to rush our stay. We loved it at Dawson house. Randy and Stacey treated us like family and we felt like family. Breakfast every day was a delicious... More
