Places to Stay

A Charlottetown Winter Getaway

We could all use a  little vacation right and luckily we don’t have to go far to find the perfect getaway destination! There’s no  better place to explore than our very own PEI! Whether you’re an islander staycation-ing or a mainlander planning a visit, if you want a vacation filled with a little bit of everything, set your sights on the heart of the Island in Charlottetown!

Unique Adventures

Charlottetown has something for everyone! Whether you’re interested in historic sightseeing, staying active, or having a uniquely PEI adventure, you’re most certainly going to find it here. If you are looking to get out and spend some time in nature, there’s lots of nearby parks and trails to explore. But if you’re looking for something even more exciting, you’re going to want to plan a visit to Island Hill Farms!

They’re not fibbing when they say it’s the #CutestPlaceOnEarth. Between the baby goats, alpacas, sweet little bunny rabbits, and super-cute café, you’re in store for a major boost of happiness on this darling little farm.

 

Some real rest & relaxation

What is a getaway without a healthy dose of rest and relaxation? Getting comfy cozy at The Great George Hotel is the pinnacle of #VacationGoals. Experience Charlottetown’s beauty and history in this stunning hotel and be wowed by the staff who take great pride in making sure your stay is totally next level (have you TRIED those cookies?!).

Before settling in for the night, a visit to Pure Spa for a pampered treatment is a must. Massage? Mani-Pedi? Facial? You name it, and Pure Spa will treat you like royalty. Tension? Stress? Gone and in its place is the blissful glow of relaxation (and ok, maybe a glass of wine too!). The best part? All of it. The worst part? Having to leave.

 

Dining in (and out!)

When it comes right down to it, amazing food is a key part of every great getaway! A vacation is the time to really go all out when it comes to eating. It’s the time to try the “adventurous” foods, the new places in town, the meals you keep dreaming about! And Charlottetown is a foodie’s dream come true. It doesn’t get any dreamier than at Slaymaker & Nichols, where the elegant atmosphere, inspired  menu and exquisite cocktails will guarantee you  an experience you won’t find anywhere else on the Island.

Dining out in a Patio Pod takes this getaway up a notch! Even on chilly days, eat out under the stars at John Brown Richmond St Grille or The Pilot House. It is sure to be a meal you won’t forget.

And of course, a trip to Charlottetown is incomplete without a visit to Receiver Coffee. From the locally-roasted beans, the too-good-for-your-own-good sweets, the breakfasts that will knock your socks off, and the ultra-cool city vibes, Receiver Coffee can’t be beat!

 

 

Whether you know Charlottetown like the back of your hand or it’s new territory for you, a getaway to the city is a delight every time. The history, the flavours, the fun; it’s all bundled up into one sweet city and choosing Charlottetown getaway is going to be worth it every. single. time.
