Originally a one and one-half storey house (constructed of 3″ thick by up to 27 ½” wide vertical planks), it has been home to the Mills family since the 1920’s when it was purchased by Thomas Mills who added a second storey and attic, creating the classic Foursquare exterior style you see today. The interior has been renovated and restored with an eye to detail – retaining a traditional feel while providing modern conveniences

Downtown Charlottetown is a historic neighbourhood that offers a wide variety of things to see and do – just step outside your door. Sailing, lobster fishing excursions, and other water sports are available at the waterfront. The downtown is also host to numerous festivals and street fairs over the summer and the Downtown Farmer’s Market (Sundays, June-September). There are plenty of dining and shopping options to choose from as well. Classic ‘corner store’ shops providing basic groceries and take-out are close by.
Mills’ Place on Prince – Getting Around
Most everything you would want to see and do in the downtown area can be found within an easy (less than 20 minute) walk from the house which is the best way to explore Charlottetown. Bicycle rental is available down the street for those who may want to explore further afield. Public transit within the city is also available and easily accessed . If you plan to explore the rest of the island, and don’t have your own vehicle, be sure to book a rental or coach for a group.
We look forward to welcoming you and hope that you enjoy your stay!
