Charlottetown vacation rentals

Life is simply better when you add a little island, eh?

As the birthplace of Canada's confederation, Charlottetown, PEI, is a melting pot of cultures, coastal vibes and of course, it's also home to the fictional Anne of Green Gables. No, she's not real, sorry! Add in fresh seafood, live theater, picturesque Victorian architecture and a wealth of history, it's no wonder Charlottetown is so popular. You can get your adventure on along Confederation Trail or see the magnificent annual whale migration. You may even spot a beaver. There are tons of festivals throughout the year so g'wan, snag a Charlottetown vacation rental and enjoy yourself.

You’ll be busier than a cat having kittens. Just sayin’.

Hit Victoria Row for quaint shops and boutiques, and then take in a performance of Anne of Green Gables at Confederation Centre of the Arts for some classic Canadiana. Enjoy the fun of a guided costumed Confederation walking tour, visit a brewery or take a pub tour, and follow it up with a lobster excursion where you’ll get to eat the catch. You can cycle along Confederation Trail, watch harness racing, play a round at Belvedere Golf Club, or take an exciting ride onboard an amphibious bus. Err, boat.

Mix your history with a lobster roll in Charlottetown

Peake’s Wharf offers picturesque views of Northumberland Strait, and there are 2 seasonal farmers' markets where you can grab some island beef jerky or a delicious lobster roll. Building buffs are sure to love the Victorian architecture of Beaconsfield Historic House and the High Victorian Revival style of St. Dunstan’s Basilica. Don't miss the inspiring works of art on display at Lorimer Gallery and the Confederation Centre of the Arts. Tea Hill Beach is only 9 km away, and history fans can visit Province House National Historic Site, which spurred Canada’s birth during the 1864 Charlottetown Conference. Go Canada!

4 seasons of PEI: short sleeves, sunblock, sweaters & toques

Summer is the most popular season to visit, when temperatures peak around 23°C; try to take in the lively Canada Day celebrations on July 1st, cause Canucks like to party. Very occasionally it'll hit 34°, so be sure to wear that sunblock, too. Winter temperatures drop down to -3°C, so now you'll need to wrap up warm and be prepared for some windy Nor'easters. Roads can be slippy as well, so be careful. You’ll find lower rates on Charlottetown vacation rentals during the spring and summer, when the climate is cooler but still pleasant.

Canadians don't have pet beavers. But that'd be awesome, eh?

As the capital of Prince Edward Island, Charlottetown has a population of about 36,000 residents. It's next to New Brunswick and north of Nova Scotia. If that doesn't help, it's northeast of Maine. Charlottetown sports picture-perfect rolling hills, ocean coves, sandy white beaches and contrasting red sandstone cliffs. There's whale spotting from spring until fall, and there are foxes, squirrels and those famous Canadian beavers. Bird lovers can adopt an American Kestrel through Island Nature Trust. With so much to experience, it's no wonder Charlottetown vacation rentals tend to book up early.
