From red-sand beaches to the red fields that supply one-third of Canada’s potatoes, Prince Edward Island is a busy little destination full of history, also famous for a red-headed girl called Anne of Green Gables. You’ll find that the smallest province in Canada has a big heart, which means you’ll receive a warm welcome at the best hotels on Prince Edward Island.

A local landmark since 1895, the Dalvay is a testament to Edwardian workmanship. Honey-colored herringbone pine fills every room from floor to ceiling, while a magnificent maple staircase and balcony surround the lobby. The 25 rooms have views of Lake Dalvay or the expansive grounds. The wood-paneled three-bedroom cottages have lofts, some with four-poster beds, cozy cast-iron stoves and views of Dalvay Bay on the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

2. The Eden Hall Inn

If you’re a fan of lace, gingham and leaded glass, you’ll love Eden Hall. Each of the 10 rooms in this 1897 Queen Anne manse with turrets and a colonnaded porch has a unique layout, many with views of Charlottetown Harbour. Furnishings are cushy reproductions for the most part, with added amenities such as mini-fridges and chandeliers. Close to the restaurants and shops of Victoria Row, but far enough for a quiet night’s rest, Eden Hall is one of the most romantic bed and breakfasts in the city.

3. Fairholm Boutique Inns

Four historic homes with a total of 32 suites make up the Fairholm collection. The two-story red-brick 1838 building has wide halls and high ceilings with massive oak beams. The suites vary widely in size and configuration, but all are modern where it matters. Some have new walk-in rainfall showers or stainless-steel kitchen appliances. Take advantage of a superior breakfast menu. Sir Paul McCartney enjoyed the vegetarian options when he stayed here.

4. The Sydney Boutique Inn

The 18 rooms and 22 suites of this former 1857 Roman Catholic convent have been renovated to a heavenly state. The custom furniture and wool carpets are reminiscent of a fine European hotel. Suites are spotless, with full-size appliances in the modern kitchens, marble baths, cushy memory-foam beds and designer fixtures. Close to downtown, there are several elite golf courses in the area.

It would be hard to find a prettier bed and breakfast. Flowers are everywhere: on the dining tables, on the rose-patterned wallpaper and growing in the beautiful back garden. There are four rooms in this Victorian charmer, as well as a loft with a kitchen and a private balcony. Baskets of fresh fruit and baked goods are free for the taking all day. Hop on a bicycle, and pedal to downtown or the boardwalk in minutes.

6. Rodd Crowbush Golf & Beach Resort

There’s plenty of room to play at Rodd Crowbush, even if you don’t know a sand trap from a sand dune. Located in Crowbush Cove Provincial Park, the clubhouse at the Links golf course reputedly has the best seafood chowder on the island. The resort has 49 rooms and suites and 32 two-story cottages with kitchens and screened porches. Don’t miss the bonfire on the beach every evening. It’s a 10-minute walk – unless you ask the bellman for a lift in a golf cart.

7. The Great George

Beyond exceptional value, the selection is enormous. 54 suites and rooms are contained in 17 historic buildings clustered around the trendy shops and restaurants of downtown. There are rooms to suit every taste and budget. Romantic Hideaway rooms have fireplaces and double Jacuzzis; suites add a kitchen and dining room. Walls in pastel hues, velvet curtains and leather furnishings are found throughout, with added touches such as balconies, skylights and columns in some of these unique lodgings.

Escape winter snows and summer downpours when you stay at the Holman. Underground walkways lead to both the popular Confederation Court Mall and the Confederation Centre of the Arts. This hotel has some of the best views of Charlottetown and maximizes them with floor-to-ceiling windows and wraparound terraces on the upper floors. When the weather clears, walk the dog around downtown. The Holman is pet-friendly too.

9. Dundee Arms

Take your pick of the twin offerings at Dundee Arms. The original 1903 Queen Anne-style building offers bedrooms furnished with carved four-poster beds and yards of chintz, while the Annex has contemporary decor. A deck connects the two. Both offer spotless accommodations and modern baths with organic toiletries and fluffy robes. Guests rave about the meals from chef Patrick Young, which can be served on the leafy, shaded patio.
