Lovely! As with any attraction such as this, there was a bit of a "corney" factor, but the land, trails, house and information were all very interesting! I would definitely plan on spending a few hours here, as there are a number of trails you can walk through the woods, so wear your walking shoes!

If you're a fan, this would be a must do. If you're not a fan, at least ensure you are with someone that is a fan who can inform you of what to appreciate. The site is a farm upon which there is a traditional house as portrayed in the books as well as woods, barn, etc. all the areas... More

Lovely museum of the home which inspired LM Montgomery's book Anne of Green Gables. The museum is faithfully decorated and the grounds include many of the scenes from the book.

I waited twenty years to come here, as a longtime Anne fan. The kids completed the activity books to get the dog tags. Those were fun. My kids enjoyed interacting with the people in costume. They were in a play acting out a few scenes from the book. My son also spent a long time with Jerry the farmhand weeding... More

I have to say it definitely wasn't the best place I have visited. I am sure it makes a difference since I am not a fan of the books. There isn't much to it and it didn't take much time at all. I only went because i had a friend visiting from Ontario and she really wanted to go here.... More

It's funny as we wore the Orange hair wig. The guy was funny as he instructed as to what to pose and do. He even took the pictures for us.

Neat to see the setting for the novel and the few other exhibits/scenes set up. Good sized gift shop. While it's nice to see briefly, there isn't much there. Avonlea village has a lot more, even without the actors anymore (which I will severely miss). Takes 10-20 minutes to go through (on average, although if you're the type that wants... More

We would have enjoyed a slightly longer tour but we understood the limitations once instead of house. The grounds were beautiful and following the paths down through the haunted wood and along lovers lane were relaxing.

This is a quaint little house with lots of memorabilia. A couple paths to stroll down. Lots of tourists.

We really enjoyed our visit to Green Gables. I had been there years ago and was really impressed this time with the additions. I was thinking this would take us a short time to visit but we were there for a few hours. Our children loved the Explorers books as well as meeting Anne and making paper dolls with her.... More
