The PROS - the room was clean and cozy with lots of character! The breakfast in the morning was really delicious although it is served as a 4 course meal which kind of dragged out the breakfast... I always prefer a buffet style breakfast where you can choose what you want, but that's just me! The food was excellent. Great... More

Stayed here on our last night in town. We were given the room on the bottom floor. The shower wouldn't drain properly, the wifi didn't work in the room and our AC unit was leaking. Breakfast was great and room was nice though. I feel as though we got unlucky since the reviews are mostly positive here. I was not... More

We loved our stay at the Shipwright Inn. The rooms are full of lovely antiques and the breakfast is delicious. The hosts had great suggestions for places to go and things to see, plus they were so much fun to visit with. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. Off street parking is available and the gardens are pretty.

The Shipwright in is a beautiful historic home turned bed and breakfast. The hosts are extremely gracious and hospitable. Our stay was very short, we chose their suite that sleeps 6 as we had a family of 5 and an early flight. Rather than being put off by my family in such a tranquil location, the hosts welcomed us gladly... More

Trevor and Judy are magnificent hosts, the breakfasts are always new and incredible and the service is even better! We stayed for an entire week and our room was clean and quiet, the breakfast was new every morning and we were located right in the heart of PEI. This is the only place to stay on the island if you're... More

We had a loooong day of travel from Bar Harbor but Trevor met us at the door with a warm welcome, showed us to our spacious downstairs apartment with full kitchen, and gave us information for dinner options just a short walk downtown. We had excellent gyoza dumplings and sushi at Ta-Ke (Trevor gave us other great-sounding recommendations but we... More

The rooms were large, the beds most comfortable, and the location was great. Judy & Trevor were delightful. We enjoyed the breakfasts and our sever Kelly was really personable. We would recommend the Inn to anyone.

I stayed at the Shipwright Inn in the beginning of June. I can't say enough about this Inn. The rooms are very unique and clean and have everything you need. All of the staff are amazing and extremely friendly. My favorite thing is always the most incredible gourmet breakfast. Everyone should experience this Inn!
