Little York Bed and Breakfast, built circa 1840 by William Large, an Irish immigrant farmer is located in the pristine community of York, once called Little York. This 4 star Bed and Breakfast sits proudly on one of the oldest roads leading to the North Shore beaches, offering scenic views of rural Prince Edward Island, the gentle Island of rejuvenation.

We are just minutes from downtown Charlottetown, are central to all attractions, close to world-class golf courses, the airport, Charlottetown Driving Park, theatre, and restaurants. The National Park beaches are only minutes away.

It’s simple…enjoy all the island has to offer then come home and relax at Little York Bed and Breakfast
Our large comfortable guest rooms have windows that open to enjoy nature’s air conditioning…gentle island breezes and offer great views of the surrounding countryside. All have private en suite bathrooms. Three feature standup showers while one has a bathtub with shower. Three of our guest rooms are located on the second floor, each having a queen-size bed while our two bedroom suite occupies the entire third floor with a queen-size bedroom and a king-size bedroom.
Little York Bed & Breakfast, once a family farm house was home to three families over the years…built by William & Margaret Large in the mid-1800s, then Henry & Mary Pope Howard purchased the farm in July 1897, and Harold and Myra Watts purchased the farm in 1913.

Shortly after we purchased this home in 2003, we had the pleasure of meeting Nelson Watts, son of Harold and Myra. In 1975 Nelson purchased the house from his mother. He sold the house in 1984 to Marion and Tom Dunphy and moved into Charlottetown. He retired in 1986. In the years after his retirement, Nelson was able to maintain his vegetable garden and raspberry patch here at his old homestead until we bought the property at which time he “passed on” some of his gardening knowledge and tools. Nelson would continue to stop by for chats and offer advice.

During these chats, Nelson would tell stories of his childhood and while doing so, he would mention the “Daughter’s Room” never his sister’s room, or he would mention the “Boy’s Room” and of course his “Parent’s Room”, or playing in the “Loft”, so thus the names of our guest rooms were decided.

The “Front Parlor” as Nelson would call it, faces south east and is now our dining room which gives us ample room to serve our many guests. The “Sittin Room” is a cozy guest lounge to curl up with a book or meet and chat with other guests. In all of the years of the house, there was no dining room. Nelson would tell stories of his mother cooking for 14 to 16 family members and farm hands three meals a day and serving them in the kitchen. She would cook these meals on a wood stove kitchen range which is still in the kitchen and gets used during the winter months.
Breakfasts are special at Little York Bed & Breakfast. Start your day with the aroma of fresh baking and freshly brewed coffee. Come downstairs to our morning sun filled dining room and sip a cup while watching the pastoral setting, reading the local paper or planning your day. Then, savor the flavor of a homemade breakfast. Your full breakfast will consist of juice, fresh fruit, cereal, a hot breakfast entrĂ©e, freshly baked breakfast pastries and homemade jams, all from Robert’s grandmother’s recipes.
When looking at the map of Prince Edward Island the distances can be misleading… the distances are shorter then you may think. We are central to most Island attractions which will work well to use Little York Bed & Breakfast as your “Home Base”. We are located on Route #25 which is a main road. We are a 12 minute drive to Charlottetown, a 10 minute drive from the airport, 10 to 15 minute drive to the beaches, 25 minute drive to Cavendish, home of Shining Waters family theme park and Anne of Green Gables, 45 minute drive West to Summerside and one hour drive to Souris on the East end where you will find the East Point Lighthouse at the tip and Greenwich National Park in St. Peter’s along the way. This sampling of four destinations would make great “Day Trips”.
Your stay here at Little York Bed & Breakfast would also include a full hot breakfast in the morning and as well, afternoon tea and snacks from our country kitchen.

Each of our guestrooms feature en suit baths, Simmons Hotel Collection Pillow Top beds, a clock radio, fresh laundered linens, iron and ironing boards, hair dryer, personal toiletries, telephone, colour cable television with a DVD player, fluffy bathrobes and Wi-Fi. Parking and bicycle storage is also complimentary. For those guests who are traveling “unplugged” but still want to check e-mails, we have a guest desk-top computer located on the first floor.

Once you have checked in (check-in is after 3PM and before 6PM, unless otherwise arranged), you will be given a key to your guestroom and a key for the front door of the Bed & Breakfast, allowing you to continue exploring the island on your schedule.
