The total experience that Chef Michael Smith and his wife Chastity have created at Inn at Bay Fortune was the best. We arrived late at night and after checking into our amazing rooms we headed to the lounge for a drink/dessert. They brought us "smores" but not just any ordinary "smores" - these were in a cast iron skillet and...

We decided to change our accommodation in PEI and my girlfriend picked the Inn at Bay Fortune for a one night stay. Everything was a 5 star experience. From the room, decor, location and the food. Ohhhhh! The food was incredible. Dinner was at the Fireworks restaurant at the Inn and we had the "Feast". Everything from the appetizers, bread,...

Tucked away in Eastern PEI just under an hour from Charlottetown is a beautiful Inn with the most helpful and friendly staff you will ever meet. The rooms are very nice, tastefully decorated with nice Maritime touches. The feast and the morning breakfast are both outstanding. Chef Michael Smith is very hands on, from setting up the wood fires over...

I met Chef Michael Smith in June 2015 at an Inn in London, Ontario where I was hosting my high level client retreat. We had a brief chat and I decided, at that time, that the June 2016 retreat would definitely be hosted at his Inn at Bay Fortune for June 2016. And so it was! To say that this...

My trip to the Inn was with 10 other business women to have a mastermind retreat. Wow! This is the perfect setting to allow yourself to let go. As a foodie I was constantly impressed, every meal was an entire experience of flavour!!! Loved it... even though I probably gained a couple pounds, was worth it in every way! The...

My wife and I had the extreme pleasure to meet and dine at Chef Michael Smith's 5 Star Inn! The experience was like being invited to his home for dinner.

My wife and I stayed in the premium top suite and it was amazing. The staff was great, the food incredible and accommodations excellent! We had an amazing last weekend! We had salt crusted halibut, strip loin, great salad, etc.. I felt like we were at King Arthur's' feast! We met so many nice people!

We were there late in the season, Oct 23-25 but despite the cooler weather it was an amazing experience. We went with high expectations and were not disappointed. It started with a room upgrade, who doesn't like that! The room was quaint, very clean and had a comfy bed all befitting the Inn. We heard they are upgrading some rooms,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in 1913 as the summer home of Broadway playwright Elmer Harris (His most notable work being Johnny Belinda), Fortune, Prince Edward Island was the summer residence of many New York City Broadway and silent screen types that fled the Big Apple to beat the heat. Many parties took place here with conversations and frolicking going on late into the night. As years passed, our property had another famous owner- actress Colleen Dewhurst, her husband, hollywood actor George C. Scott and their children lived here during the summer and shared their hilltop wonder with famous friends including Elizabeth Taylor. In 1989 the Wilmer family transformed the property into a country inn. 1991 marked the arrival of Chef Michael Smith and by 1998 the Inn had grown in popularity so much that a new kitchen, dining room and guest wing were added. April of 2015 marked the return of Chef Michael and his wife Chastity with the launch of their innovative new dining concept, FireWorks. In May 2016, The Inn at Bay Fortune received its 5th star with guest room that feature luxurious amenities balanced with cozy seaside charm. ... more   less
