About the Property
Provincially Licensed: Downtown: 3 Bedrooms
Night at the Museum: School Street House is not only a guest house, it is a living museum filled with stories, historic photographs and artifacts. Some vintage treasures for music enthusiasts include a 1936 model Hammond BC organ with a Leslie 125, an 1880’s Thomas pump organ and a 1940’s record player. The furnishings and floorings date between 1900-1960 and antique china displays adorn period cabinets. School Street House is an honest to goodness old-time dwelling steeped in history and preserved since the turn of the last century.
School Street House is a House with a Heart as Mark Twain spoke of his beloved home in 1896, ' 'We never came home from an absence that its face did not light up and speak out its eloquent welcome -- and we could not enter it unmoved.'
Like a Message in a Bottle: Children's signatures discovered on an old plaster wall behind a hundred years of paint and wallpaper revealed that School Street House was the 1904 birthplace and childhood home of world renowned marine botanist, Dr. Constance Ida MacFarlane. Dr. MacFarlane is credited with putting PEI on the map as the “Irish Moss capital of the world.” Irish moss, a form of seaweed, is a major source of carrageenan, commonly used as a thickener and stabilizer in processed foods and products, including ice cream, beer, wine and toothpaste.
Comforts of Home & More!: Having your very own centrally located three bedroom vacation house is perfect for folks who prefer their own special spot. Fully equipped and serviced, School Street House has all the necessities plus high-speed internet connection, free local telephone calls & messaging system, cooking/dining utensils, linens/blankets/towels, main floor laundry washer & dryer, iron and ironing board, old-fashioned outdoor clothes line, tv/dvd, stereo, record player, barbeque, picnic table, lawn chairs, private treed yard, off-street parking, house/groundskeeping service and 24 hour staffing as required.
