“The perfect B and B?”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Stayed in both a room and a suite at this B and B. Since the room had a comfortable bed and every convenience we required, it was the better value. But, the suite was a nice splurge. It was very spacious, had a working fireplace and a huge tub. Our host, Jay, patiently explained how the fireplace and the tub worked.

Jay and Carol are the perfect hosts. They really enjoy people and want you to get the most out of your stay on PEI. They never tire of answering questions and suggesting good places to eat or visit. And, having been in business for 25 years, they know just how to make your time at Elmwood special. Both Jay and Carol orchestrate the breakfast experience, making sure that guests not only enjoy some delicious meals but that the breakfast conversation is fun and informative.

Elwood is well located in Charlottetown. Near the downtown waterfront but in a quiet street with off street parking. Definitely a great base for exploring the city and PEI.

Our first B&B. It was nice. We liked it. The room is nice, the food was great and the hospitality was nice, more personal then those hotels.
It was a pity that it was for only one night on our way to Nova Scotia from Boston. It was nice after a long long drive. It was a rainy day and they let us keep our bikes in their garage for overnight.
Breakfast was fresh, warm and good.

Outstanding B&B! 1880's Victorian with matching decor. Very well appointed and comfortable rooms. Breakfast is amazing. it was our 25th and our hosts, Carol and Jay, surprised us with champagne. Nice touch! The hosts were much more than helpful with a variety of information on sights, restaurants, ferry rates, golf recommendations et al. When back in PEI we're coming here!

The Elmwood Heritage Inn provided everything you could want from a B&B experience. It is a house with character and rooms comfortably furnished in keeping with the period. We stayed in the Library room, which had a large and luxurious bathroom, plenty of books, and room for reading. One reviewer commented that the house was dark - and it is somewhat - but I think that comes with the shade trees and Victorian era. The rooms are nicely decorated without too much Victorian lace and frills - well within our comfort zone for that kind of thing.
The breakfasts were wonderful and a great way to start each day. I appreciated that the portions were not oversized - seconds were available for the asking, but we were served just the right amount of food.
The house is, as they say, a 15-20 minute walk to most of the restaurants and such in downtown Charlottetown, and we enjoyed the walk home through Victoria Park after overindulging in the great restaurants in Charlottetown. Jay and Carol are great hosts - friendly and willing to provide help or advice with any arrangements. - we'll certainly return when we next visit PEI.

Our stay at Elmwood Heritage Inn was all we could have asked for. The home was charming and well kept. Our room was lovely and clean. Carol and Jay are perfect hosts. They welcomed us, and the service they provided was above and beyond what we expected. Breakfast was leisurely and delicious. It is obvious that they love what they do.

Our two-night stay at the Elmwood Heritage Inn during our late August road trip with relatives to Maine, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island was exceptional. Our room was very neat and comfortable, and the breakfasts were great. Proprietors Jay and Carol were especially helpful in recommending things to see and do during our one full day on the island, and in making dinner arrangements for us. They really bent over backwards to make our brief stay enjoyable. This is the place to stay if your visiting Charlottetown.

This was our first trip to PEI but certainly not our last, due a great deal to our stay at the "Elmwood Heritage Inn" for four nights in Aug 2013 and the hospitality shown by Jay and Carol.
The Inn is meticulously clean and comfortable, breakfasts prepared with attention to detail by both host and hostess, served in a very relaxing manner and enjoyed in the company of other guests or at a private table for two, whichever suited our needs. Tickets to evening performances were happily obtained by Jay and we learned much about Acadian history after viewing "Evangeline". We felt very welcomed in their home and are so pleased that we had the opportunity to experience PEI from this starting point. Thank you for everything! Ken and Linda, Norwell, MA
