The Dawson House with hosts Randy and Stacey is a great place to stay in the Charlottetown area. The rooms are most comfortable (recommend the third floor with cross ventilation and open views) and well laid out, plenty of space for conversation in the common areas, a pool, and a delightful breakfast room. Breakfast is cooked to order and included... More

Wow, not even sure where to start. What an incredible experience. We arrived for 3 nights for our honeymoon (from Toronto) and were greeted by Randy with a huge smile and "welcome honeymooners!" He proceeded to show us the beautiful home (it's stunning) and helped carry our bags up for us. We quickly got changed and headed out to explore.... More

When we pulled up to the Dawson House, hostess Stacey was gardening. She dropped her tools and walked right up to the car to welcome us in. Randy was running out the door, but stopped to meet us, apologizing for not staying longer to chat. That friendliness epitomizes the Dawson House. The home itself is beautiful, extremely clean and very... More

First timers in PEI and Randy & Stacey were excellent hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed; a beautiful room, fabulous food and great tips for visiting the Island. It's a beautiful and well maintained house,what you see in the pictures is what you get. We would definitely go back!!

We needed some freezer space to store some seafood and they happily did this for us. After dinner in downtown Charlottetown, we went back and... More
