Overall, we enjoyed a three night off-season visit to Shaw’s, an historic inn/hotel beside beautiful (and windswept) Brackley Beach. The properrty has been in business since the mid-19c under the management of successive generations of the eponymous family. The location is somewhat isolated, an advantage for those seeking tranquillity. Apart from walking the beach, there’s not much to do in... More

We've got two more nights and I'm already getting the family asking about next year. We wanted a family get away, where we could hang on the beach, or just relax. As soon as we arrived, it felt right. The location has privacy, space, beauty and access to wonderful beaches. Well kept and reasonable prices for accommodations. Breakfast has been... More

The rooms are cozy and comfortable, and the delicious breakfasts and dinners are served by the friendliest staff. One day we kayaked in the bay adjoining the... More

I am definitely more of a hotel guy than a cottage guy, so I'll just stick to some tips I learned after staying at Shaw's for 2 nights. 1. Bring your own bug spray. The front desk has multiple bottles they loan out, but if you have your own to carry with you, you have a better chance of survival.... More

Buggy Sorry to hear your disappointment with the mosquitos you encountered. The heavy rains over the last week created the opportunity for a new batch. The walk to the beach is through the National Park and is beyond our control but we do have mechanisms around our property controlling the mosquitos and they haven't caused any issues until the last...

Arrived at 1:50 p.m. given key to Cabin # 3 when we entered the cabin, it was obvious it was not cleaned since the last occupant left. When this was reported to the front desk they appeared quite unorganized. Return to the cabin at 12:30 am only to find the cabin was infested with black beetles running around the floor.... More

Dear Happy Traveller: Sorry to hear about your disappointment with your visit to Shaw's Hotel. There was a miscommunication between housekeeping and the front desk in regards to the cottage being ready for new occupants. The black beetles were flooded by heavy rains out of there natural habitat and hit a number of cottages. These have all been treated by... More

Our family have been travelling to PEI together for almost 40 years. We have stayed in many cottages in many areas of PEI. Our extended family recently stayed in 3 of the cottages at Shaw's. I stayed in cottage 19- a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, spacious, immaculate, cottage. It became the gathering point. My siblings and their families stayed in... More

Early in the season stay - front desk very helpful, dining room staff excellent. Room was very nice and clean, although a little dated. Good location for travelling around North side of PEI, and an expansive beach a short walk away.

The room was immaculately clean! Very efficient service. A couple of minor requests I had we're dealt with immediately. The bed was very comfortable, room cosy. Great food. Really nice setting, family run business. Great amenities! Laundry, beach, walking trail, cyling, Super friendly staff. Would definitely return!

Surprised to find out how large the property was. We were recommended by a friend and was happy to find out how convenient it was to the beautiful beach. (just a short walk on a path through the wood) We stayed two nights at the inn in a cozy room. We just have to rave about the lovely breakfasts served... More
