Gay Friendly Prince Edward Island Bed and Breakfasts, Hotels, and Vacation Rentals

Rainbow Lodge, Prince Edward IslandRainbow Lodge is an old converted General Store located on the Trans Canada Highway in Vernon Bridge, Prince Edward Island, Canada. We are conveniently located just 15 minutes east of Charlottetown and 20 minutes west of Wood Islands Ferry.

Rainbow Lodge was a well thought out plan of converting my former general store /reupholstery shop to an exclusively gay & lesbian Bed & Breakfast. During the renovations I tried to keep as much of the old world charm of the interior of the building.

When entering, the first things you’ll notice are the walls and ceiling of B.C. fir and the maple floor. This gives you the feeling of being in a lodge or cottage. In the great room is a collection of some 35 years worth of collecting antiques and memorabilia from across Ontario and the Island. Separating the room from the galley kitchen is the old store counter resurrected from the warehouse.

Outside, most days, you’ll see my 1931 Chev waiting to take you for a spin. Brought in Ontario it is fondly known as the Gay Mobile and guests who venture Charlottetown with Jim behind the wheel are shown how to do the Royal Wave.

Prince Edward Island Should Market to Gay Travelers

Author: , November 29th, 2010

Gay Prince Edward IslandYesterday’s Charlottetown Guardian carried a story about the Tourism Association of PEI’s annual meeting. The keynote speaker was Jeff Guaracino of The Greater Philadelphia Marketing and Tourism Association.

It’s great to read so much in the Guardian these past weeks about PEI’s reaction to the firebomb attack against a gay couple in Little Pond. Islanders truly seem horrified.

According to the Guardian, Guaracino told the room PEI would do well to research and develop a long-term marketing plan to help attract gay tourists to the province. He pointed to a survey in which 77 percent of gay travellers to PEI said they would recommend the province to others, but 51 percent reported feeling uncomfortable there.
