Hi, I recently stayed at the Clark House for five weeks while working at my organization's Charlottetown office. Clark House is a set of apartment-style accommodations, recently built behind the Fairholm Inn. Wow, wow, wow is all I have to say! Clark House is new, clean and contemporary, fully equipped for stays that are a big longer than your usual... More

The accommodations where suggested by the PEI tourist board after we crossed the bridge from New Brunswick. We arrived late and did not know what was waiting for us after a long drive (we are from Ontario). The accommodations where incredible, very clean, beautiful, spacious, and the keeper of the Inn made us feel right at home. I could actually... More

Doris is a superb Inn Keeper and sets a standard that has been unparalleled in our b&b experiences! Professional, exquisite decor and character set this Inn apart. It is in close proximity to the historic part of Charlottetown and it is pretty darn cool to tell your friends you stayed at a National Historic Site of Canada! Thank you Doris... More

Arrived late evening after a day of driving around Nova Scotia. Pleasantly surprised by the Inn keeper, for whom a 9.30 pm arrival was no problem, and who happily helped make a dinner reservation. Very well kept with charming artifacts. The breakfast was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. It was a nice touch that staff (seemed to be)... More

Thanks for the review. It's great that you had the opportunity to roam around Charlottetown as 2014 is an especially big year here on the island! We find it very important to be as accommodating to our guests as possible, no matter the check in time. Hopefully you will return to PEI in the future and stay with us again!... More

My husband and I recently stayed two nights at this wonderful inn. We stayed in the loft which was not only charming but spacious and full of small thoughtful touches. The antique furniture and gracious rooms are a delight throughout but the warmth and helpfulness of all the staff made it really special.

The Fairholm Inn is a very special place! Amazing history and architecture, very accommodating, and super dog friendly. We brought our Poodle x and he had full run of the house and yard. Everyone was so inviting and we had a wonderful stay. Great food and location! Highly recommended... you will love your stay here! Also... there's a ghost!

Thanks for taking the time to review us Kyla! It's always nice to have a furry little friend come for a stay, your dog could not have been any more well behaved. The Fairholm staff and ghost hope you'll join us again for another visit! Ben MacMillan More

Our choice of accommodation during a conference my husband was attending was this lovely b&b, instead of the chain hotel hosting the event. We were lucky enough to stay in the Brecken Suite located on the top floor of this spectacular property. It is very private and spacious, with all the amenities one could ask for: 2 person jetted tub,... More

We stayed at the Fairholm Inn mid June of this year. We have stayed in many B+B's while travelling and Fairholm rates as one of the best we have had the pleasure of experiencing. The Irene Rogers room has been exceptionally restored and was very comfortable. The hot breakfasts were excellent and well presented by the friendly and accommodating staff.... More
