Better inside than out!

Don't pass by the house because it looks plain on the outside. The interior is exquisitely decorated and furnished. Reasonable admission.

Very nice tour of a beautiful home. The furniture & decoration are all great to look at. Our tour guide did a great job. My grandmother had lived in this house as a student back in the 1940s so it was wonderful to see the history behind it.

We make a habit of finding a home or old mansion of historical significance when we visit any city - so this was the one in Charlottetown. It has been reasonably well restored although most of the furniture is not original (but period pieces). The guide was lovely and engaging. The tour was short, but we felt like it was... More

Unfortunately, we were only able to see the outside of this beautiful home. We were disappointed to learn it was closed during our visit to Charlottetown.

We love old homes. Nice young tour guide. 30 minute tour for $5. Great way to start your day. Rise and fall of a prominent businessman who refused to change with the times.

Not sure why our guide was in this line of work as she stood half in the reception room and half in the hallway talking to visitors. Kept the visit very matter of fact and didn't y to interact with any of the small group she was showing around. Had heard other groups clapping their guides at the end of... More

The visit was very interesting and offered in both languages.he view over the Bay of Hillsborough is superb! We learn many details about the life of the first inhabitants and the vocation of the house after departure.

While our tour guide was young and not the best the home is beautiful and speaks for itself. I especially encourage a walk on the veranda. And be prepared for a large group - ours had 8 people and the other two groups I saw had at least 5. I can't get over the foot traffic!

Great to tour an old house and hear some of the history of Charlottetown. The tour was fairly short but the guide was able to answer most of our questions. Since it was pouring rain all day, we were glad to have found this place to tour.
