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.

Our room (#1) was comfortable, clean, and there were robes for us to wear, we could not have asked for more. The staff made sure that our bikes were put away in the shed, showed us to our room, and asked us to let them know if we needed anything else. Dinner was outstanding, it was truly gourmet. This is...

Exceeded our expectations. Real homemade gourmet food as good as the best metropolitan restaurants. Quiet and friendly. The honeymoon suite is a real treat, with a supremely comfortable bed and a jacuzzi.

The room (#2) was quaint and comfortable, with attention to small details such as a piece of chocolate to have with the individual coffee brewer, fluffy robes and iPOD docking station. Very comfortable bed! This room has a large... More
