The Dawson House is a lovely and comfortable home, so warm and welcoming. Our hosts Stacey and Randy made us feel right at home. Our room was magical, set at the top of the house, with windows all around and a sitting area outside the bedroom. There is an AC , but the breezes were sufficient! Everything was lovely, with...

Stacey and Randy are a relaxed happy couple who make you feel the same. They open their house as if it was yours and ask just for friendship and a good chat. There is a nice and comfortable living room, a dining room where cooked breakfast is served on a common large table. We met some very nice people there...

The Dawson House with hosts Randy and Stacey is a great place to stay in the Charlottetown area. The rooms are most comfortable (recommend the third floor with cross ventilation and open views) and well laid out, plenty of space for conversation in the common areas, a pool, and a delightful breakfast room. Breakfast is cooked to order and included...

Wow, not even sure where to start. What an incredible experience. We arrived for 3 nights for our honeymoon (from Toronto) and were greeted by Randy with a huge smile and "welcome honeymooners!" He proceeded to show us the beautiful home (it's stunning) and helped carry our bags up for us. We quickly got changed and headed out to explore....

When we pulled up to the Dawson House, hostess Stacey was gardening. She dropped her tools and walked right up to the car to welcome us in. Randy was running out the door, but stopped to meet us, apologizing for not staying longer to chat. That friendliness epitomizes the Dawson House. The home itself is beautiful, extremely clean and very...

First timers in PEI and Randy & Stacey were excellent hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed; a beautiful room, fabulous food and great tips for visiting the Island. It's a beautiful and well maintained house,what you see in the pictures is what you get. We would definitely go back!!

WE had one night to spend in Charlottetown and after a bit of research decided upon 'The Dawson House'. We were very happy we did. The owners welcomed us and took us to our room. We needed some freezer space to store some seafood and they happily did this for us. After dinner in downtown Charlottetown, we went back and...
