“Fun for the whole family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Really cool to see life inspiring art in such a tremendous way and the preservation of artifacts. Very cool, especially from a writer's perspective.

“Never Read the Books, still enjoyed my trip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Whether you're a Anne fan or not this trip is absolutely worth it. I was not planning on going because I heard that the fee was like $30 to visit the gables but a friend convinced me to go and when we got there it was only like $8 or something to go in. Much more managable. It is really cool to walk around and see the inspiration behind Anne of Green Gables and how real life truly does inspire art. Worth the trip, fun for the whole family.

“Wonderful way to spend a morning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Had been waiting to visit Green Gables for many years and it was worth the wait. It was great to see the inspiring countryside for the Anne stories and interesting to see more of Lucy Maud Montgomery's live and history.

The gift shop was a little pricey, but then I guess gift shops usually are. The staff were friendly all round the site.

“Step back in time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

For a peaceful and less commercialized event this is a lovely place to visit. We walked the Haunted Woods and Lovers Lane trails (approx. 1 km each and very easy to walk). The Heritage House was well maintained with beautiful gardens. Highly recommend a visit here whether you love Anne of Green Gables or just want to walk a Heritage property in PEI. There is a gift shop and small snack store, but not the main attraction and do not gouge you on prices like the stores in Cavandish or Charlottetown.

“Green Gables”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

A good example of old farm houses on PEI as is the birth place of L M Montgomery. Much better example of PEI compared to the made up Avonlea Village.
