Cute little stop on the Anne touring

This is a tiny home that the author was born in and lived in as a baby, for about 2 years. It's only $4 entry and the ladies at the cashier gave us a little run down before we... read more

This is a tiny home that the author was born in and lived in as a baby, for about 2 years. It's only $4 entry and the ladies at the cashier gave us a little run down before we started that was very interesting and put a few details into the authors life. There is a lot of other reading... More

Her birthplace is a simple and small house that feels cramped by modern standard. It was interesting to see how homes looked like over a century ago. Of course, there are also books by L.M. Montgomery and Anne souvenirs for sale here. This is a must visit place for Anne buffs who are heading to the Anne of Green Gables... More

If you really love the writings of LM Montgomery, you will enjoy getting yet another glimpse into her life. We visited here following Green Gables and took our time. The lady at the site gave us some history about the house and LM, then we had some time to walk around. The place is quite small, but there is a... More

The LMM Birthplace should take you no longer than 15 minutes. For a small fee, you'll get a quick overview of LMM's life (which you likely already know or would have picked up from previous stops in other LMM Cavendish sites). The main treat is seeing the room where LMM was born. If anything, it's a good excuse to stretch... More

This is a small, period home, with Lucy Maud's wedding dress and some other memorabilia. I'm glad the price was included in my Anne of Green Gables package, because I would not have wanted to pay to just see it. If you are an avid Anne fan, it might be a must see. We saw what we wanted in about... More

This place is proof that greatness is not limited to those born into wealth. While it doesn't take long to see this house, it is worth the stop. We enjoyed the glimpse into Lucy's life.

Visiting this small museum added more information to my understanding of Lucy Maud Montgomery, the writer of the "Anne of Green Gables" series of books (among many other works). On display here are some of Montgomery's scrapbooks -- it was neat to see her own hand and what she collected and saved during the course of her life. It was... More

This is one is my sister's review as the boys stayed outside and the ladies went in. Admission is very reasonable. It is $4 for adults and $0.50 per child. The house itself is quite small so you would think it would be a quick visit but the ladies found that they could spend 45 minutes there. The house contained... More

This museum was a nice little house in New London, PEI. It was full of musty books, newspaper clippings, photographs and antique furniture. The ladies at the desk were very informative and seemed very passionate about the museum. If you are a massive fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery, you may be fascinated. They've even marked the specific room she was... More
