Prince County Guest House

Prince County Guest House is an 1899 house located in Micouche, Prince Edward Island. The Victorian house has 16 rooms and is 3 stories tall. These 16 guestrooms are sorted as family suites, king rooms, and standard rooms. Each accommodation offers a king- or queen-size bed, tables, chairs, air conditioning, WiFi, and an ensuite bathroom with shampoo, towels, hairdryers, and other standard toiletry items. Some rooms also have electric fireplaces. Other indoor features include a living room with a TV and sofa, an entertainment room with a piano and chessboard, and a dining room with a kitchenette. Prince County Guest House also has a public second-floor deck with outdoor furniture and views of the surrounding area, including the St. John the Baptist Catholic Parish Church across the street. Breakfast is served at The Cook's Corner, a next-door restaurant. Visitors are given breakfast tickets to give to the restaurant staff for complimentary meals.


Miscouche, Prince Edward Island, serves as the setting for Prince County Guest House—a three-story 1899 home. The island's only connection to the Canadian mainland is the Confederation Bridge, which extends several miles long. Miscouche is located on the island's western side, sitting on the stretch of land south of Courtin Island and Belmont Provincial Park. Miscouche is west of Slemon Park and Saint Eleanors and north of Miscouche Bank.

Victorian in appearance, Prince County Guest House has 16 guestrooms. Two second-floor family suites are outfitted with king-size beds, sofa beds, tables and chairs, fireplaces, microwaves, and mini-fridges. Three king rooms are equipped with similar amenities, except for sofa beds. The remaining ten standard rooms vary in style, some maintaining a Victorian atmosphere while others are more modern. These units have queen-size beds and electric fireplaces, plus tables and chairs. Every accommodation offers TV, air conditioning, bottled water, WiFi, and an ensuite bathroom with shampoo, a hairdryer, and towels. The owner of Prince County Guest House says that the king rooms—luxury rooms, as she calls them—are generally the most popular guestrooms as they have separate sitting areas and extra space.

Other indoor features include an entertainment room with a piano, chessboard, and other activities for visitors. Additionally, the living room area has a TV, sofa, tables, and an adjoining dining room with a relatively spacious kitchenette. The manager also mentions a second-floor patio with outdoor furniture and seating. Outside, Prince County Guest House has approximately one to two acres of outdoor space with gardens, flower beds, vegetables, and a lawn. The manager explains that the house can offer a country view next to St. John the Baptist Catholic Parish Church, a religious building next to the Acadian Museum.

While Prince County Guest House does not currently offer breakfast, the next-door restaurant, The Cook's Corner, is generally where visitors eat from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. According to the manager, occupants are given tickets to turn in to the restaurant staff for complimentary breakfast. She continues, saying The Cook's Corner typically serves eggs, bacon, pancakes, and other morning dishes. Prince County Guest House also has a Village Pub where additional food and drinks are served.

The sea and various beaches are often frequented by tourists in the area, the closest of which is, according to the manager, about a seven-minute drive from Prince County Guest House. Visitors can find many different locations to ride bicycles or walk along trails and roads in the vicinity. They can also travel to historical locations in Miscouche, such as the Acadian Museum. Additional dining locations can be found in the town as well.


The Prince County Guest House manager says she wants visitors to feel comfortable and "like they're in a home." She remarks that the bed and breakfast staff promote this environment by providing sofas, TV, and the other amenities mentioned in the house. She also regularly interacts with occupants, especially during the check-in process, where she gives them a door code and shows them to their rooms. In a further effort to create a social atmosphere, Prince County Guest House hosts a few activities to bring visitors together, such as charity events or gatherings in the Village Pub.

The manager explains that she believes Prince County Guest House is most known for being clean and "very beautiful," per various comments and reviews from former visitors. One such review says, "It is a beautiful old inn, so clean and well cared for. The hosts are wonderful, very gracious, kind, and accommodating. Great service from beginning to end. The location is peaceful and serene, [and] the rooms are comfortable and cozy." The manager also says that guests have commented on the quality of the hospitality, with another review saying, "The greatest thing about this quiet, beautiful old home was not the gorgeous rooms, delicious morning coffee, or the wonderful antiques placed all around the house creating a homey, comfortable atmosphere; it is the hospitality and kindness of the family who owns it."

Prince County Guest House's main policies prohibit any pets and indoor smoking, though it should be noted that people can smoke on the lower deck to the west. Quiet time is from 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., and guests are asked to generally keep noise to a minimum, as the house's walls "are not particularly thick." As such, minimal noise is encouraged throughout the house to avoid disturbing other occupants, even outside the appointed quiet hours.

Prince County Guest House operates year-round, and the manager says July and August are the busiest months, although June and September also see many guests. According to the manager, this is primarily due to Prince Edward's Island maritime tourism and people's desire to see the ocean. Most bed and breakfast visitors have been middle-aged, seniors, and retirees, although the manager has noticed an increase in younger visitors over the last few years. She also affirms that Prince County Guest House receives many repeat guests yearly.


Prince County Guest House was built in 1899 as a farmhouse to be occupied during the summer. According to the current manager, the building was converted into an inn before the 1980s. It has since operated as part of the hospitality industry. While the manager has limited knowledge of Prince County Guest House’s current property owners, she mentions that they acquired the property in July 2022.
