Spectacular Victorian house. Well preserved. Among the best house tours ever had. Wonderful guide knowledge and friendly to family with tweens. Really gives a feel and understanding for Charlottetowns past thru the story of this house and location.

We walked to the Beaconsfield House on a rainy day in May. What a great place to visit! The décor is beautiful, and we had a very informative tour that described the history not only of the residents but the contents of each room. One note - the tour does include the second floor which requires going up stairs. I... More

When you walk into Beaconsfield you step back into history! It is by far one of my favorite museums on PEI! The house is stunning, with the stain glass window, winding stair case and handsome floors...it is a definitely a must see when visiting Charlottetown. The house sits on a corner lot, 3 sides of the house have a breath... More

Good tour by informative & knowledgeable guides--informative, but not too long/boring. Lovely views from pretty grounds.

We found this gem while taking the historic walk through Charlottetown. It gives you a little insight on the history of the town. It's great, especially if you are a period junkie like me.

This is a beautiful house and the tour was wonderful. We enjoyed all the interesting trivia and the intricate details of the house are well preserved. It was like taking a step back in time.

I like seeing historical houses and this was a lovely victorian one that represents the history of Charlottetown. Some interesting facts and furniture. It is quite small. Loved the original flooring. I brought my family with me (teenaged children and husband) who aren't as into this type of thing as I am. Well, I haven't lived it down since. They... More

Loved Beaconsfield! The history given by the tour guides was interesting, the house was magnificent, even the scent of the wood on the railings and seeing the light filter through the stained glass window at the spiral staircase- all beautiful! Great photo opportunities and if you're lucky, you'll catch a glimpse of a blue heron hanging out on the waters... More

I love touring historic houses whenever I'm in a city that has them. This one was small but didn't disappoint. The tour is short but I loved seeing the original architecture and how they restored it and furnished it with period pieces. It backed onto a lovely green lawn by the boardwalk and I'm not sure what was next door,... More
