TOTALLY RETRO * DOWNTOWN * 3 BEDROOM HOUSE

Charlottetown House Rental Photos and Description

Downtown: Whole House: Open Year Round: Hammond BC Organ: Film Shoot Location

Take a trip down memory lane when you come stay in this nostalgic vacation home nestled in historic downtown Charlottetown. With all the comforts of home, School Street House provides a genuine one-of-a-kind holiday experience that you just can’t get anywhere else. Happily situated in Canada’s loveliest little province of Prince Edward Island, School Street House feels just like your favourite Aunt’s place!

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.

Strictly non-smoking & no pets property. Sorry, no exceptions possible.

Check-in time is after 3:00pm (to be arranged with housekeeper)

Check-out time is 10:00am.

Hi! I design and install sound, light and projection systems throughout Prince Edward Island. I'm also a boom mic operator and recordist for tv & film productions. My love of preservation and restoration projects has led to the operation of my historic guesthouse. Hope to see you here in 2014!

Thomas Barnes purchased this house in 2005

'I love this place already. I always heard that Prince Edward Island was the most beautiful place in Canada, and I used to imagine I was living here. This is the first dream that has ever come true for me.' Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island is the most perfect city in Canada. It's small and has everything you could ever imagine. Being downtown means that shops, restaurants, theatres, cinema and the waterfront are all within walking distance. Charlottetown is a central location and makes for handy day trips to all the other great spots on this amazing Island.

For people who want a one-of-a-kind experience when they visit PEI, School Street House takes you back to yesteryear in the comfort of today. We know its history dating back to 1874 and give guided tours when the House is vacant. Guided tours are complementary for guests and are available upon request. School Street House is a member of the Community Museums Association of PEI.

Perfect, Lovely House from Yesteryear.

We were in town to visit Family and decided to stay at a place that offered more that the typical hotel. This was perfect. Quiet. Historic. A comfortable getaway with all the amenities one needs. I loved soaking in the deep clawfoot tub. The owners were close by in case we needed anything but we hardly saw them. The house is on a quiet Charlottetown street but close to restaurants and shops. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

It's like going back in time to a quieter, more relaxed world. A lovely home, lovingly maintained - and a unique experience. Within easy walking distance of downtown and The Charlottetown Festival, it was a bit like walking from one world into another. I was made to feel completely welcome and I would happily return the next time I'm in Charlottetown. I would highly recommend it.

I would recommend School Street House to anyone who will be in the Charlottetown area in the near future. It is clean and spacious and its like a trip back through time. Each room has the feel of a different era in PEI history. Our family had a relaxing stay and the hospitality was second to none. I can't really say enough good things about it, but I will include 1 more: location, location, location!!
5 stars!

Truly a home away from home. My stay at School Street House was too short, but so sweet. As a first time visitor to PEI, I can hardly imagine a more idyllic retreat that mirrors the warmth and charm of the island. My next visit to PEI will be longer, and I look forward to sharing this little gem of a place with my husband.

Our stay at School Street felt like going to vacation at your favourite aunt's! Everything from the crisp, clean space to the well preserved and tasteful furnishings and classic instruments are there to be enjoyed. Tom and Diane, the owners, live next door and went out of their way to make our stay perfect, and being within walking distance from the downtown nightlife on a quiet street made our stay stress free and so relaxing. I can't wait to go back.
