“Time to remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

For about the cost of a large coffee in the States you can receive admission to step inside the Wyatt house and a step back in time. Our tour guide, Sabrina, introduced us to this intriguing Victorian family in such a way that we felt as though we too were members of this community a century ago, watching this intriguing family go about their day to day life, make decisions that would benefit future generations, and learning from their travels. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is a history buff, lover of antiques and/or appreciates the finer details of times past. It has been the highlight of our trip to Prince Edward Island, an island we frequent…what a hidden gem this was! Thank you Sabrina for sharing so thoroughly and eloquently. We could have listened to stories for hours!

“Victorian Era at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Well preserved example of old Summerside. Docents are VERY knowledgeable and if you are only 2 or 3 people, not rushed. Take a few moments to also tour the Admin building a house or two over. If you like older houses, this is great.

“Learn about an amazing woman and the history of the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We enjoyed the tour of this historic home. Wanda Wyatt lived her whole life in this home. It was fun to step back in time and learn about this spunky Summerside woman.

It was amazing to see all the artifacts in this house that are still intact. You really feel like you are stepping back in time. It is so well preserved. Interesting tour. Highly recommend.

“Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

The kids camps in the summer are superb and great for visitors as they can do just a couple hours while you golf! The staff are amazing !! Come in the fall for the Ghost Walk or have them create something special for your group...like a flashight tour that will scare you more than any pretend haunted house!!
