Elmwood is a truly beautiful heritage lady, made to sparkle by Carol and Jay's warmth, friendliness and generosity. My husband and I, along with our two daughters (aged 13 and 4) spent 5 nights in the Cunard Suite, a self-contained accommodation in this gorgeous B & B. This suite was extremely pretty and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen, which allowed us to cook for the girls of an evening after a busy day's sightseeing. Each day started with a tasty and beautifully presented breakfast served by Carol and Jay in the elegant dining room, where we enjoyed talking with fellow travellers. Two in our party require a gluten free diet for coeliacs disease and we found that Carol was well-informed about this dietary requirement and made a real effort to ensure that the GF food was varied and delicious. We found that both Carol and Jay were able to provide a wealth of information about PEI and the sights and activities, having been long-term residents of the island. In fact Jay started helping us with trip planning months before our arrival when we first enquired about a booking. A bonus for Australian tourists is that Carol and Jay are happy to phone Australia to assist with your booking and planning. Elmwood is excellently located in a quiet area in Charlottetown, only two or three minutes away from the town centre. We found it an easy drive to Cavendish and other locations around the island. Two things deserve a special mention. Firstly our two girls were made to feel warmly welcome as guests by Carol and Jay. This has not always been our experience with children in B & B's previously. Secondly nothing is too much trouble for Carol and Jay. They truly go out of their way to ensure that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable, which for us included a complimentary laundry service. I could have wept with gratitude for that alone by that point in our four week trip! The night we arrived we had a booking to attend a musical (made earlier by Jay on our behalf). On arrival to assist us making the musical on time Jay made a restaurant booking for us and then both Carol and Jay drove downtown with us to ensure we would not get lost. We are so happy we were able to stay at Elmwood and regard our time there as a real highlight of our trip. Chris and Michael.
