I have not tried any other B&B on PEI, but my wife and I agree, we want to stay here again! Getting to the inn in the dark is a bit tricky. As you pull into the gate off River Road, bear right past several modern houses until you come to the towering, three story Victorian house so far back in the lot that Waze takes you to the street behind! This keeps the place very quiet. Rooms require carrying luggage up two or three flights of stairs, but the hosts provide detailed instructions and a pathway of signs to follow for late arrivals. The room we had was comfortable and charming. A window air conditioner provided a pleasant temperature to sleep. Breakfasts were spectacular. We asked for vegetarian food and it was done perfectly. I suspect they do an equally great job for other dietary requests. I needed to do some laundry and the hosts took care of it for me at no extra charge. How nice was that! You should stay here!

I struggled a bit on this review. There are certainly aspects to the Elmwood I liked. The staff is great. They tried to be very helpful. The breakfast was really good. I enjoyed it each morning. The overall structure of this as a historic Victorian home was great too. Price was good, location in Charlottetown is great. So why did I give it only 3. My primary issue was the bed and bedding. The bed was non-supportive. It reminded me of the Chevy Chase scene in European vacation when he lays in the bed and it essentially wraps around his body. It was not that bad but it was just not comfortable and I did not sleep well. The sheets were not particularly crisp and were a dusty. The arrangement of the room was odd too - could not really effectively watch the TV. So ultimately it really came down to the bed, dustiness, and a room organization that made it difficult to enjoy. These are not fatal by any stretch but it needs help in these areas. So as my title indicates - a mixed review.

We enjoyed our stay at the Elmwood Heritage Inn, at this large, Victorian style house set in a quiet, suburban neighborhood up a small private driveway. We booked this reservation through Expedia and our rate was $164 (American) including the mandatory 15 % ("Harmonized sales) tax. We stayed in the "Nurse's Room" which was very quaint and pleasant, though it was up on the 3rd floor, so it involved 2 flights of stairs, which could be a consideration for anyone with mobility/health issues. The bed was comfortable, the room clean, and the air conditioner worked well and was not too noisy. The windows opened for fresh air, which was a nice option to have. The breakfast was very good the two mornings we were there, and was cooked individually for us. We were asked ahead of time, at which half hour time slot we would be coming down to eat, starting at 7:30, 8:00, 8:30, etc. which was a great idea, instead of everyone having to eat at the same time. We met a few other couples and had some pleasant conversations. We were told generally what would be served, though one morning we smelled green peppers from the kitchen next door, and asked not to have them included since we don't like them, and they obliged. When we arrived we were greeted by a young woman who showed us around, and in the morning there were other young women who served us breakfast, and arranged for our payment at check out time. It would have been nice to meet the owners of the bed n breakfast, but perhaps they were away. One thing to note is that this bed n breakfast is about at least a 15-20 minute walk to downtown Charlottetown, so people should plan accordingly for going out for meals or activities in the very active downtown area. You can drive there in about 5 minutes which we did a few times. Charlottetown has plenty of parking spots, though plan to have some Canadian coins, since the meters do not accept credit cards for payment. There was some type of app for paying, but we found it too complicated, and you had to commit to creating a membership, which would be okay if you live in Canada. Since we did not have any Canadian coins, the other option we used twice was to park on certain streets close to the main street, where they had two hour parking for free. Charlottetown is a quaint, manageable city, with a wonderful variety of restaurants, stores for shopping, and a theater/art museum cultural center. If you are going to PEI, consider this bed n breakfast a great choice for a place to stay.

My husband and I spent two nights here recently where we were offered an upgrade to the Premiere Suite at no extra charge since the hotel wasn’t full during the early days of June. The room had a working fireplace which we were encouraged to use (and we did!) as well as a huge bathtub in a dressing room complete with dressing table. The beautifully appointed bathroom also had a nice shower and stocked mini-fridge. The bed linens were top quality and we enjoyed the extra space in the large bedroom which incorporated a king bed, lovely vintage armoir, couch and chairs. Viola, the owner, was most gracious, her husband cooked delicious breakfasts both mornings where we were served on fine china and silver. It is located just off the street (long driveway) which gives it a feeling of calm and quiet. Delightful stay. Thanks very much, I hope to return someday!

Me and my betrothed spend 2 nights in the Master suite and it was lovely. A huge room with a jacuzzi tub, shower and lovely amenities. The hosts were very kind and generous and I cannot recommend them more. The inn is also only about a 5 minute drive to down town Charlottesville and a 15 minute drive to some fast food and restaurants on University. Its quiet and the views are spectacular. The breakfasts we had (French toast and scrambled eggs with croissant) were delicious. If you are planning a trip to PEI and Charlottesville, I cannot recommend the Elmwood Heritage Inn more
