“Our Best Stay in PEI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2011

We spent 2 nights at the Blue Shank Inn. I found Susan, the host, to be very accommodating and friendly. She went out of her way to make sure everyone was taken care of, but wasn't at all invasive or overwhelming as I have found some B&B hosts can be. I found our stay comfortable, easy to do the Summerside and Cavendish outings and all in all a very pleasant stay. Susan is a lovely lady and knows how to balance making one feel at home while still giving you the autonomy and independence of an inn or hotel. I highly recommend the Blue Shank and had they not been booked for the rest of the week I would have gladly made this our only accommodation during our visit to PEI.

We had a perfect stay at The Blue Shank Inn. The location was convenient and quite quiet. We stayed in the Harris Room which was elegant and adorable with all the little teddy bears. We never figured out the Wifi there and the water pressure was quite light but everything else was perfect. Susan made us fantastic breakfasts every morning and even though we are not really b&b people, we felt very comfortable with the owners and the other guests. Susan made sure I had decaf coffee every morning and even made chocolate treats knowing I came to the island for the chocolate festival. The inn is beautiful with homey touches. We absolutely loved our stay there.

This is the only inn we've stayed at in PEI, so can't compare to others, but the room was lovely and pleasant, and Susan, the host, and her husband, were friendly, helpful hosts, serving a very tasty, filling breakfast. There are two very cute little dogs that they let out for dog-lovers (us, especially our daughter) and keep in their side of the house for others. The inn is not really walking distance to anything, but right outside Summerside and an easy drive to Anne-land and even Charlottetown could be a day-trip.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Blue Shank Inn while on a visit to PEI. The building is a large Victorian era house just on the outskirts of Summerside. Breakfast was good with fresh fruit, muffins and a different one of Sue's (the owner) own concoctions as a main course. The room we stayed in (ground floor) was a trifle small and the bathroom was quite tight. No A/C that I was aware of so be cognizant of that if you're visiting in warm weather. Generally I felt it was pretty good value for the money.
