Every morning, we sat on their sun porch and had pastries, coffee and... More

My wife and I stayed for a couple of nights as part of a driving tour of PEI. We chose the Home Place Inn primarily because of its proximity to the venue for the Indian River Festival. Wherever we go, stay, or eat, we usually ask ourselves the question; "would we come back"? In the case of the Home Place... More

I had a lovely stay over 3 nights and used the location to access the west and central provinces of PEI. Easy to find, short walk into 'town'. Convenience of a restaurant on site, not noisy at night and also quiet from road noise. Relatively large rooms, ensure with a bath and robes provided. Breakfast was lovely. Glenda and her... More

We spent a relaxing 2 nights at the home place recently. The rooms are lovely; comfortable beds, nice linens, bathrobes, updated bathroom. Glenda goes out of her way to make your stay enjoyable. The house smells amazing as the restaurant is just downstairs and the food is incredible. Thanks for a wonderful stay, Glenda!

The Home Place in Kensington is an older inn with lots of dark original wood, old style wallpaper, lace, and charm. Our room was pretty with burgundy floral wallpaper and a big comfortable bed. The ensuite was tiny but was very clean and had everything we needed. Location was great and we used The Home Place as our home base... More

This B&B is a great place to stay if you are touring PEI. The room was clean, the staff friendly, the food great! I would recommend they upgrade their TV's however you are not usually there to watch TV, lol.
