Downtown Gem
School Street House is a True Gem Situated only a few blocks from the core of down town makes everything so neatly accessible..from the hip coffee houses, arts and cultural events etc. Big exhale and lowering of the shoulders upon stepping into School Street House. I slept in every day ...can't remember the last time that happened. Maybe it was the relaxing soaker tub that I couldn't get enough of or the comfortable bed and linens. School Street House is stocked with everything you need and then some. Very clean and well maintained! The native birds in the back yard were a bonus too! I am already planning a summer stay this year. Can't wait to go back. SCORE: 5/5

Cozy Sanctuary
A home away from home! As a first time visiter to PEI, I was looking for accommodations that would mirror the warmth and charm of the island, and I found what I was looking for in School Street House. This clean and comfortable little historic gem helped me to unwind briefly after a business trip. I plan to return with my husband for a longer stay next time to explore Charlottetown and surrounding area, and look forward to sharing with him the wholesome sense of unhurriedness inspired by this home and neighbourhood.

Nice house with lots
Had a great stay. People were wonderful . Location is a short walk from downtown Charlottetown. I recommend a bike ride on the trails of the island. The house is restored beautifully with orignal painted oil cloth on some of the floors.
