Visited PEI the week after Labor Day. Just beautiful, really enjoyed our stay in Charlottetown. Only saw the Beaconsfield from the outside, however because it was closed on Saturday. Found that rather odd since, as a tourist, Saturday was a big sightseeing day... It looked lovely with fantastic views of the harbor. Maybe next time...

This house is incredible. The tour guide shared the amazing history of the house, and the decor was outstanding, with antique period pieces. Visitors are allowed to take photos inside the house. The grounds are beautiful, overlooking the waterfront.

On this year's tour of PEI we wanted to embellish our historical understanding of the island. Our first stop was the Arcadian Museum where we bought a general admission ticket which included Beaconsfield Historic House. Both the tour guide and the house provided us with a better understanding of early PEI history and a desire to continue on our historical... More

If you are interested in Victorian homes you will enjoy seeing this home...so much of the house is original and the guide was very happy to answer our questions.

The tour guide allowed us to ask as many questions as we liked as well as suggest great picture locations. This mansion is quite nice and has a magnificent view of the harbor.

This is such a fantastic building! There are so many beautiful rooms all nicely restored. Everything from the stain glass windows, plaster crown moldings to the decorative door hinges were breathtaking. Also a shout out to our young tour guide who always had an answer to any of our questions.

I'm a supporter of keeping good samples of historic buildings and homes to peak into by-gone eras. The Beaconsfield House is beautiful and in good condition for home built in the late 1800's. It is also nicely decorated with period furnishings. Hopefully they'll be able to open servant quarters and add more history to the tour to take a half... More

My wife and I took our 4.5 and 6.5 year old boys there for "A Wizard's Tale" play and it was excellent. The story was funny and intriguing for my boys and kept their attention for the entire play. Last year we also went and they loved it and came away with a "knock-knock' joke that they told all year... More

We purchased the historic pass to see 3 places on the PEI list, this was our 1st. The house is lovely, architecturally very special. You do get to visit most of the home. Our guide was not one of the best, but we understood the story of the property, which is quite sad. The neighborhood around the house, the park,... More

Built in the late 1870s, the house still has many of the original mouldings and trim work. It looks like you could move right in. The view from the poarch across the water is spectacular. The guides on the tour are very knowledgeable and are willing to answer any questions you might have about the house or it's history.
