Historic Downtown House
Fully equipped and serviced, School Street House has all the necessities plus wireless high-speed internet connection, on-site laundry facilities, tv/dvd, stereo, record player, barbeque, private treed yard, parking, handy location, house/groundskeeping service and 24 hour staffing as required.
As a member of the Community Museums Association of PEI, School Street House (c.1874) is a genuine old-time dwelling steeped in history and essentially untouched since the turn of the last century.The furnishings and floorings date between 1900-1960.
In addition to the vast array of historic photographs and documents, the house has many other vintage treasures such as a 1936 model Hammond BC organ with a Leslie 125 for music enthusiasts.
Happily situated downtown Charlottetown, School Street House is just a skip away from everything including theatres, galleries, historic sites, churches, repertoire cinema, shops, restaurants, seafood pound, farmer's market, parks, harbour and trails yet it's only a 5 minute hop in the car to the golf course, 15 minutes to the beach and 25 minutes to Anne of Green Gables House!
Being based in the Province's capital makes for easy day trips to all parts of the beautiful Province of Prince Edward Island.

Truly a home away from home. My stay at School Street House was too short, but so sweet. As a first time visitor to PEI, I can hardly imagine a more idyllic retreat that mirrors the warmth and charm of the island. My next visit to PEI will be longer, and I look forward to sharing this little gem of a place with my husband.

Home away from home

Our stay at School Street felt like going to vacation at your favourite aunt's! Everything from the crisp, clean space to the well preserved and tasteful furnishings and classic instruments are there to be enjoyed. Tom and Diane, the owners, live next door and went out of their way to make our stay perfect, and being within walking distance from the downtown nightlife on a quiet street made our stay stress free and so relaxing. I can't wait to go back.

A walk through time. Lovely spot to settle after a day of sightseeing and walking around the city. Everything works wonderfully, and the ambiance of the house is such that it puts one at ease the moment you walk in. Will be back again!

Our stay at School Street House was fantastic. staying in a museum is so very interesting. We loved the clean and beautiful accommodations, as well as the friendly people. Vacationing in PEI had a new twist for us being based in Charolette Town. We got to enjoy all the urban attractions and were still close enough to hit the beach at Cavendish and tour Green Gables (for the 3rd time :)) My entire family would recommend School Street House to anyone planning to visit PEI. Thank you for enriching our experience by providing such a pretty and compelling environment for us. We give it an A+ rating!
We will be back!

charming place, its like walking back into the past, clean , comfortable , close to amenities in Charlottetown. It is a historic building that comes with a guided tour by Diane. its historic yet has all the comforts of home, including wifi, this would be a great home base when touring PEI. would love to return.
