Hi there and thanks for giving us a look!
We are pleased to offer you our condo-The Briggs Suite- for your stay on PEI. The Briggs Suite is ideal for two adult couples, two business travelers from the same company or a family of four, each having its own queen sized bedroom and its own separate bathroom. With all of the amenities we include, plus a fabulous downtown Charlottetown location on the waterfront, plus a reasonable rate when shared between two couples, two business travelers or a family of four, we think you will find us to be of incredible value compared to the cost of two hotel rooms. We have been given a 41/2 star rating by Tourism PEI, the highest rating given to any other condo in the area. We are within a very short walking distance of the new Charlottetown Convention Center, the Charlottetown Events Grounds and Confederation Landing Park.
We are directly on the waterfront with harbor views from every window. Two decks overlook the water and Confederation Landing Park and are complete with patio furniture for afternoon tea, cocktails, sunset viewing and barbecuing. We are a short walking distance from the new Charlottetown Convention Center, Confederation Park, and the Charlottetown Events Grounds.
Prince Edward Island is accessible via Air Canada year round and from a US gateway during the summer months.
Charlottetown can also be reached easily by car from Boston (11 hours), New York (15 hours), Toronto, Montreal and Quebec via the impressive Confederation Bridge which connects PEI directly to mainland New Brunswick at Tormentine.
Directions from the Eastern US:
Take I95 through Maine to Houlton, ME/Woodstock, NB. Then follow the Trans Canada Highway (Route 2) across New Brunswick passing Fredericton and Moncton to Tormentine. From the PEI side of the bridge, follow the TCH (Route 1 on PEI) into Charlottetown. Take the bypass around Charlottetown into the waterfront district. We are at the junction of Water Street and Lower Hillsborough Street directly next to the Water Street Visitor's Center and Founder's Hall. The exact address is #1 Lower Hillsborough Street in The Roseport Building.
Directions from Toronto, Montreal and Quebec:
Pick up the Trans Canada Highway (Route 2) at Edmundston, NB which is at the Quebec border in Western New Brunswick. Follow the directions above to The Roseport. Travel time from Fredericton to Moncton is about 2 hours and from Moncton to Charlottetown is about 3 hours.
Please note that the Confederation Bridge is a toll bridge with the toll only being collected upon your departure from PEI. The present toll is $46.00 CAD.
Please check out the Gallery and Recreation pages of our personal website as some of the photos shown there were taken at this location. There is a link to PEI Vacations on the Waterfront from this site to our homepage.
Again, thanks for giving us a look and we look forward to welcoming you at The Roseport.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Miriam and I are both 'washed ashore' from the states having grown up in New York and coastal New England respectively. Miriam received her undergraduate degree and MBA from Columbia (NYC) and Jeff graduated from Washington & Lee University (VA). We both are professionals. Jeff is a retired commercial banking VP from New York and Miriam completed a long stint as a marketing executive at one of the top IT companies in the world. She is looking forward to greeting guests to the island. We both like to travel ourselves (having done all seven continents) and know what we like when we get somewhere in terms of a first class experience. We believe we are offering one here with this harbor front property. Thanks for your interest and we hope to hear from you....
Why the Owner Chose Queens Square, Charlottetown, PE, Canada:
Miriam and I chose to purchase rental property here because Prince Edward Island offers a remarkable vacation experience with its quaint fishing villages, rolling hills resembling those of Northern Switzerland and its pristine beaches. It is much like Cape Cod in many ways but without all the people....in most places on this island the word 'traffic' does not even exist in one's lexicon! Additionally, visitor's to PEI will find a friendly welcome from almost everyone and there exists a spirit of community that is very real here. The Scottish tradition of Celtic music and step-dancing still lives on here on PEI and summer CEILDH's (Celtic music concerts) abound in almost every larger community during the summer months. Weather-wise, there actually is a real summer here (despite the more Northerly latitude) with temperatures in late June, July and August topping out at about 73-76 degrees Fahrenheit (about 23-24C). On most days there is an offshore breeze and air conditioning (while we offer it) is not usually necessary. Temperatures do cool down to the low 60's on most nights in summer and at the end of August it can feel like a September evening would feel on Cape Cod. I guess to sum it up, this place is a just a great spot to 'unwind', 'smell the flowers' and 'relax for a week or two' before resuming the daily pace of life that probably exists in your hometown.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
If I were to pick a few phrases to describe our Roseport location, these would be among them: Location, Location, Location and Views, views, views and more water views! Elegance and first-class amenities... Walking distance to just about everything - the new Charlottetown Convention Centre/theatre/shopping/antique stores/outdoor bistros/great restaurants (e.g., Sims Steakhouse, Olde Dublin Pub). The availability of first class entertainment at the Confederation Centre of the Arts It's all here and all of it is within a 5 minute walk from your doorstep!
