Car: Recommended

Harbour Master House is located in the heritage area of Charlottetown, the capital of PEI. This is where the Father's of Confederation decided to form Canada. It's 2 blocks from the waterfront, a stroll to the Provincial Legislature, National Art Gallery, Theatres, shops, antiques and galleries, restaurants, tours on land and water, live music and clubs. A lovely area to stroll.

You are a short drive to beaches, harness racing, the National Park with parabolic dunes, award winning golf courses, deep sea fishing, lobster dinners and Anne of Green Gables country. Guests appreciate that they are not far from anything yet can enjoy a well appointed home and garden in quiet privacy. The house is also a great base for enjoying Canada Day Celebrations, Art In The Open, the PEI Jazz and Blues Festival and the International Shellfish festival.
