We were doing the walking tour of Charlottetown and decided to visit this historic house. We were very glad we did, it turned out to be a very interesting tour. A rather sad story of the Peake family who had the house built but never really enjoyed it. The rooms were well restored but did not include the original furniture,... More

We did this tour out of curiosity not expecting too much and we're suprised how pleasant it was. We thought we'd go in, look at an old house and leave but got a guided tour and learned lots about the history of the house and its owners. Well worth the $5 entrance cost.

Beacons field is a worthwhile tour that weaves in the history of Charlottetown. The restoration of this Victorian is beautifully done, featuring lovely reproduction William Morris Wallpaper. Little of the furniture is original, though the house is full of authentic period pieces, and the architectural details are gorgeous.

I was very excited to squeeze in time on my two day trip here so I could see this home; I even took time away from my family to do this because they are not into house museums like I am. The visitor center said this tour would last about an hour, and the website said their last tour goes... More

If you're in Victoria park, be sure to swing into beaconsfield. A very quick tour of a house built in 1877, the architecture and history of the home is sure to amaze.

They take great pride in the building as the painting was kept up as were the amazing grounds. This is next to the Lt Governors house in Victoria Park. Cost to enter the building.

If you like a good story and incredible workmanship you need to see this place. The tour is well worth the price of admission.

We love to tour historic houses and this was no exception. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, making the sad tale of the first owners come alive. The period furnishings and family pictures add to the experience.

The staff at the museum were extremely friendly and personable. The innformation provided during the tour was enlightening and many good stories of the history of the home and the families that lived there. Definately worth taking the time to visit.
