The Shipwright Inn, Charlottetown

The inn is absolutely lovely.

It has a great sign.

The Purser's Room, where we stayed.

An antique top hat, cane, and bag on the top shelf.

Old bottles on the shelf in the bathroom.

I snuck into one of the fancy suites (it wasn't occupied.)

An old log cabin quilt on the wall.
They used old school desks for nightstands! What a great idea!
I loved the old dresses they had on display, but I would be somewhat unnerved if I woke up in the middle of the night and saw this:

The parlor. I couldn't sleep, so I got up at 4am, grabbed a book and magazines, made a cup of tea, and spent a couple of pleasant hours in here.

The dining room. This is the tea, coffee, and snack station that I was very grateful for at 4am.

Nautical china.

A great idea for using old butter boxes. I use mine to store potatoes.

I have literally wanted to stay here for more than 10 years, after I first heard of this inn in a cookbook of inn recipes in 1999. I was not at all disappointed ... the Shipwright Inn is pornalicious!
