The house is stunning, good location. Close to d
Historic downtown. It is located across the road from salvation army and there are questinable people hanging around at all hours. I honestly felt a little uneasy walking there at night despite the reassurances that charlottetown is a safe place. We also had hard time locating the manager even though we spent 5 nights at the B&B. She did not come in in the mornings during breakfast which was dissapointing. Staying at Bed and brekfast You kind of expect being able to chat with the innkeeper and get recommendations on places to go. The other lady who was serving breakfasts was very friendly, but absolutely clueless about the island. She could not give any recommendations about anything including the beaches, restaurants etc. Food was pretty good. fresh and tasty.
Our room was spacious and clean. The shower worked fine, but the window air conditioner was noisy and it actually kept me up. The rest of the house is not air conditioned and it was very muggy and humid everywhere outside the bedrooms even though it was not too hot outside. There was a dead bug in front of our room and it interestingly remained there for the whole 5 days of our stay.
To sum it up: it is a stunning, stunning house. But it is lacking the soul and the warmth. It felt more like a hotel, than a bed and breakfast.
