This is a great bed and breakfast in an ideal location close to everything in town and the water. Breakfast was ala carte cooked to order and the rooms were well appointed and very clean and comfortable in a lovely old house.

This is the #1 Inn in Charlottetown and one of the top 10 inns in Canada for a reason.

Stayed one night at the Shipwright Inn and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would go there anytime again. Judy and Trevor are great hosts. You get a warm and friendly welcome and feel at home the moment you enter the place. Everything is decorated with great taste and Breakfasts are delicious! Wish I could have stayed longer!
