We had an amazing stay here in early June 2015. There were four of us-two mothers/two daughters-and we loved the charm of the inn. The rooms were beautiful, beds comfortable, and it truly felt like stepping back in time (in style). Breakfast was delicious-muffins, coffee, a fruit parfait and an entree of your choice. Doris was so kind and helpful.... More

This was our fifth visit to the island and a unique experience, like visiting a story book mansion. The beautiful antique furniture, paintings, crystal and fine carpentry of floors and window trimmings alone are worth seeing. Breakfast however is very au courant with beautifully presented starters and hearty meal choices. And it is free. The gardens are carefully tended and... More

We spent 3 nights at this Inn and it was a great visit. Beautiful inn, historic, stained glass windows. The staff is very friendly and made great suggestions on local restaurants and places to go. The rooms are unique and clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was included and was great.

This place is beautiful, with original woodwork, wood floors, and antique furniture, much of it original to the home (built 1839). The rooms are large, with their own luxurious bathrooms. The hosts are extremely gracious and friendly, helpful with sightseeing and restaurant recommendations (easily 50 good places within a few blocks' walking distance), and serve a tasty, filling (free!) breakfast...

We stayed for three nights - incredible Inn, wonderful accommodating staff. The Inn is a short walk to the waterfront and shopping. Great location, large welcoming rooms. Would highly recommend it for business or leisure.

This is a beautiful old property, lovingly restored as a B & B. The staff was extremely helpful and considerate. Highly recommended as base for visiting PEI. Only praises. I agree heartily with the other superlative reviews.

I had the very good fortune to reside short-term (1 week) in the Fairholm Inn historical building, with its fine charm and attention to architectural detail. I then moved to the adjacent brand new and modern/contemporary Clark House (with same owners/management/staff) for a longer term stay (over 7 months). My personal experience could not have been more pleasant nor rewarding,... More

Yes, this really is a National Historic Inn - all the features in the rooms suggest opulence in a previous age. Our room had been the library - it was enormous!! Our en-suite had a cast iron bath - complete with original plumbing - which worked. Superb location, breakfast was excellent and all the staff were incredibly helpful re where... More

Shedan, The Ben Rogers room might be one of my favourite rooms, it is very cool staying in the transformed library. Perhaps you will get the opportunity to check out some of our other rooms in the future. Thank you for taking the time to review us, we really appreciate it! Ben MacMillan General Manager More

Rooms were architecturally interesting and beautifully decorated. The Inn is located in downtown Charlottetown and is within walking distance to restaurants, pubs, conference and entertainment venues. Guest services and staff recommendations are helpful. Breakfast menu is excellent and the food was delicious.
