Unique Places to Stay in Prince Edward Island

Unique Places to Stay in PEI

Published September 5, 2023 | Tourism PEI

As recently reported by Tamara Elliott of, “Canada’s tiniest province packs a punch when it comes to inventive lodging.” From floating wine barrels to a converted church and off-grid glamping, Prince Edward Island can offer more than the standard room with four beige walls, a mini fridge and a 'Do Not Disturb' door hanger. 

Here are a few favourites that offer a ‘wow’ factor that you might not find anywhere else! 

West Point Lighthouse Inn – West Point

Sleep in the “Keeper’s Quarters” of the tower of a historic lighthouse. Enjoy breathtaking views and sunsets from the balcony and a long stretch of red sand shore for beach walks. Learn more
