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.

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

What a wonderful venue from which to visit Charlottetown and PEI. Our hosts Stacey and Randy gave new meaning to making us feel welcome, beautifully catered to, and very informed about places to see, visit, and enjoy. The House was very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and breakfast each day was superb and delicious. We have told everyone about the place and... More

We stayed at many excellent B&Bs during our maritime trip, but the Dawson House was the absolute best. This splendid house is located in a tree-lined neighbourhood of similar grand Victoria-era homes, within 15 minute walk of downtown restaurants and other sights. Dawson House is a bright and beautifully furnished B&B. Our room was spacious, immaculate, comfortable, and we could... More

Recently we toured the Canadian Atlantic Provinces for 10 days, and we stayed in B&B's. The Dawson House was, by far, the best of them all. The Dawson House is very close to downtown Charlottetown. The proprietors (Randy and Stacey) were hosts extraordinaire. The breakfasts were excellent, especially the french toast. Our room was very clean and neat. The proprietors... More

Randy and Stacey were great hosts. Our room was the one upstairs and it was gorgeous. The whole experience with the hosts and the beautiful home were so wonderful. We were there for two nights and would go back anytime. They suggested places to eat the first night. We went to the bistro down on Main St. It was delicious.... More

We are so pleased that we took the opportunity to stay at Dawson House on Prince Edward Island. The house has so much character and the owners Randy and Stacy have done well to retain this with really excellent home cooked food and lovely rooms. They both make you feel so welcome. Will definitely be returning in the near future.... More

My husband and I just spent two nights at Dawson House. The room was charming.The bed was comfortable and the towels are sooo soft! The entire house was pristine. The hosts, Randy and Stacey, were welcoming, helpful and fun. Breakfasts were delicious and more than adequate. A small fridge was available in the dining room to store our snacks. The... More

2nd time in a B&B and Trip Advisor came through for us again. It was a toss-up between another place higher on the ratings but the reviews swung me to Randy and Stacey. Great decision! They are excellent hosts and we felt completely comfortable during our stay. First time in PEI and Stacey was a great help in where to... More
