Tourism season is bread and butter for providers of hospitality on Prince Edward Island. Last summer, the island’s marquee attraction for hungry locals and visitors — TV-star chef Michael Smith’s Inn at Bay Fortune and Inn at Fortune Bridge — invited islanders to pop in and enjoy their Farm-to-Picnic baskets, packed with goodies made from the bounty of local producers. This June, Smith’s doing “Sneak Peak” Islander Days for locals, with a farmhouse supper and breakfast in bed with every overnight stay. Hungry islanders can wander the expansive grounds and gardens while enjoying oysters and drinks from multiple outdoor bars. As for the rest of the summer, Smith’s team is watching, waiting and hoping…to welcome visitors back — “when the bubble returns” — for something a little more intimate.
