This house was well worth the visit for its $5 admission fee! Gorgeously maintained interiors, a beautiful Victorian garden facing the water, and plenty of history to keep you intrigued. A gem!

Beaconsfield is a unique home in Charlottetown. While the tour is less than an hour, the price of $5 per person is reasonable, and the guides are quite good.
