Fairholm Inn & Carriage House Charlottetown, Prince Edward Islands

Category: Inns
The Fairholm in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, is one of Canada's National Historic Sites and it would do well to begin by quoting the citation on the monument placed at Fairholm by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada on behalf of the Government of Canada. It reads:

"This superb Picturesque villa is one of the finest homes built in pre-Confederation Canada. It was constructed about 1839 for politician and administrator T.H. Haviland Sr. (1795-1867). Basic to its design is the late 18th-century British taste for scenic composition of landscape and architecture. Here, the graceful bowed walls and extensive garden setting typical of the Picturesque style are wedded to the stately symmetry of classical design popular at the time in the Maritime Provinces. A rare example of early brick construction on the island, Fairholm retains much of its original interior."

Fairholm (Maritime "Pict-uresque" style circa 1838), a designated National Historic Site, boasts large rooms with superb architectural detail, inlaid hardwood floors, fine stained glass and an extensive sunroom library. Seven elegantly comfortable suites with private ensuite bath. Executive rooms with TV/VCR, telephone, high speed internet and fax access points, jacuzzi, fireplace.

Antiques, some original to Fairholm, Island art, and wallpaper imported from England complete the Inn's warm alliance between English roots and Island hospitality. Hearty breakfast. Parking. In Olde Charlottetown, within walking distance of theatre, restaurants, shopping, waterfront.
