Sweet Downtown Urban Cottage

Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

3 bedroom right downtown

This Maritime Vernacular Cottage combines historic charm with modern convenience to create an eclectic vacation experience just a block away from Water Street and the boardwalk in downtown Charlottetown and a short stroll away from Charlottetown’s finest restaurants, theatre and nightlife. Just around the corner is the Water Prince Corner Shop where you can try their famous seafood chowder.

Our three-bedroom cottage has been recently renovated; from the reclaimed floors to the custom kitchen island and soaker tub, this is truly a home away from home. Whether you are enjoying a glass of wine on the back deck, picking fresh herbs in the garden for dinner, or sleeping late on a pillow-top mattress, Smallwood Cottage is the perfect place to lose yourself in a simpler way of life. We believe we have the best selection of Atlantic Canadian fiction in Charlottetown and invite you to relax with a great book!

The main floor features an open concept living and dining room with a 50” flatscreen television, a spacious kitchen with stainless appliances and a custom island, a bathroom with washer and dryer and a stand-up shower, and an office. The second floor features a large master bedroom with a queen bed, a second bedroom with queen bed, and a third bedroom with two twin beds. The second-floor bathroom features a soaker tub with a Roman faucet. Guests will enjoy crisp hotel linens, soft duvets, luxurious bathrobes, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a comfortable simply designed space with a mix of antiques and midcentury pieces.

Wander around charming downtown Charlottetown, along the boardwalk for Cows ice-cream, or just relax in our sweet cottage in the city. Our location is three blocks from the Prince Edward Island Convention Centre, five minutes from the hospital, and a twenty minute drive to the white sand beaches of the North Shore, making this is an ideal home base for your Island escape.

A great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a great place to stay when you want to set your own schedule and be within walking distance of the main attractions. I loved the charm of the house and even though it was larger than we needed for two, it was great to have our own separate spaces. The location close to downtown, food, and the wharf were perfect for us and the house had all the amenities we needed. I will definitely recommend it to family and friends!

Great Comfortable beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I loved staying at he Urban Cottage. It was beautifully appointed, comfortable and spacious.The owners live close by and we’re friendly and helpful. At one point I needed a darning needle for a project I was working on, so they borrowed one for me from a family member.

The house is walking distance from the waterfront and the downtown area. Very convenient.

What a great place to feel right at home and enjoy all that Charlottetown has to offer

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is an absolute dream. It's located in exactly the right place for quick access to all the attractions of old town Charlottetown and the waterfront. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will definitely return. Keir and Robin are wonderful hosts and responded quickly to any questions or concerns when I first arrived. I will miss this cottage and PEI when I have to return to my own home.

Great Location in Charlottetown

  • 4 of 5

This updated 1850's vintage cottage was a perfect home base for our stay on PEI. Close to the town core with shops and restaurants within easy walking distance with ample space for the two of us and a couple of friends who joined us for part of our stay. Keir and his family were nearby and provided good recommendations for the few shopping/ places to visit questions we had. We hope to return in a couple of years and will definitely rebook this unit.
