|Enjoy a unique experience at the award winning 5 Star Shipwright Inn. Relax, unwind and take in all that our “Gentle Islandâ€ť has to offer you with its tranquil beaches, red soil and rolling countryside. The Inn, which is centrally located in Olde Historic Charlottetown, is an elegant Victorian home built in 1865 by Charlottetown shipbuilder, Mr. James Phillips Douse, and respects its ship building heritage by emphasizing a nautical theme. Rated as the “Best Bed and Breakfast on Prince Edward Island” and one of the “Top Ten B and B’s in Canada” by Frommer’s Travel Guides, the Inn is a AAA/CAA 3 Diamond approved lodging offering warm, Island hospitality, attentive service and a tradition of pampering its guests.
The Shipwright Inn has nine unique rooms with nautical period antiques and artwork, which have been collected for your enjoyment. All bedrooms are fully air conditioned with overhead fans and all have polished pine floors, full private bathrooms, some with double Ultra Air Massage Tubs, whirlpools and fireplaces. Complimentary wireless internet is available throughout the Inn and televisions and telephones are standard in the rooms.
After a “busy” day of golf, swimming or shopping, you may wish to sip a complimentary beverage in the quiet atmosphere of the parlour, the rustic games room or under the old oak tree in the beautiful English style garden.
If you have time to browse, you will discover old books and artifacts related to the sea and be introduced to the unique experience of the Victorian “whimsy”.
We provide off street parking and a smoke free home.
The accommodation is well appointed but not intimidating and has all the benefits of a luxury hotel and so much more.
While savouring breakfast beneath the dining room chandelier, guests might imagine how the rope insignia china (circa 1810) must have originally looked at the Captain’s table on a clipper ship.
In the afternoons, when guests return from exploring the Gentle Island, our buffet table is available with a selection of complimentary teas, French Press coffee, gourmet hot chocolate, pop and homemade lemonade along with a selection of delicious cakes.
There are 30-plus golf courses here (starting only a matter of minutes away) so given PEI’s small size, guests can play a round and still have plenty of time for touring, dining, beaches, Anne of Green Gables attractions, lighthouses and seal watching. In addition there are the Provincial and National Parks, heritage roads, historic villages, antique and craft shopping to be enjoyed.
The Inn is available to cater for small private meetings (up to 12 people) with a selection of menu and refreshment options provided.
