Cozy private room in Charlottetown

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Prince Street, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island C1A 4S1, Canada

Our room is sunny and cozy with a double (54") bed that serves as a couch during the day. There is a 1/2 bath right there and access to a full bath. Hang out in our cool living, dining and kitchen loft or walk downtown, just two blocks away.

The Space

While the room is small, our loft is a grand place, full of sunlight, plants and art. Our loft is the west end of the gym of the old Charlottetown YMCA that we developed into condos. We liked the 20' ceilings and the hardwood floors. The old bowling alleys that used to be in the basement are now table tops and stair treads.
We rent for a minimum of 3 days and we include breakfast as well as dinner on arrival. More meals can be arranged or cook your own. We are foodies, and our son is a chef, so we have a well equipped kitchen, fun to hang out in.
We can lend you a bike if needed, and if it is a good beach day you may be able to get a ride there as well.
While we have no TV, we do have a DVD projector and screen as well as a CD player, WI-FI internet and lots of books. There is a 1/2 bath right next to your room and you have access to a full bath during the day.
During the high season, we rent the entire space, guest and master bedroom for $1600 per week.

Interaction with Guests

  • I loved it! Ole and Karen were fantastic! I would absolutely recommend their place (and them as people) to anyone and everyone... Can't wait to return.

  • Ole and Karen are wonderful, considerate and engaging hosts. They went out of their way to make me feel at home and welcome. As someone who spent his days putting 1000km driving around the island, it was always a pleasure to return to this cozy home.
