“Fictional Green Gables”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I'm not necessarily a fan of Green Gables, having never read the books. We started with a orientation video talking about Green Gables. Touring the house and grounds was enjoyable.

“OK , IF YOU ARE DRIVING BY”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Well kept, nice walk around lovers lane and the period pieces in the house where very authentic. The museam was dissapointing, just too touristy, like they were creating something to draw people to.Its a beautiful part of the country and that what should draw the people,any place looks good on the island in late oct.

“A must for Anne fans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Wife is a huge fan so this was not to be missed and it didn't disappoint her either. Watching her relive some of her cherished moments from the books & movies was priceless. The video provided a great backstory and the stroll around the place was enjoyable. We went during the shoulder season so some attractions were closed, but still definitely worth it for anyone who's a fan of Anne, the Raspberry Cordial in the gift shop is a must!!

“Take a picnic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We enjoyed the house and garden where the interpreters were cheerful and knowledgeable. I found it quite touching to see the rooms laid out as if for Anne, Marilla and Matthew. We very much enjoyed the little trails too, extending to the old post office. And fun to both have your picture taken in the red pigtails and straw hat - and to watch al shapes and sizes doing the same. However - the food in the little shop was horrendously expensive and not very exciting. Good plan to take a picnic.

“Okay but not worth the money.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We visited the Green Gables Heritage Place and expected more. Yes you can tour through the house but not worth the money except you can say you been there.
