Weren't allowed to walk into rooms. Only four to see down stairs and six upstairs. Not all of the house was view-able. No basement, third floor, bell tower, or other half of the house. Five bucks for guided tour.

We love old houses and this one is great. The property is well maintained. The crown moldings and other architectural features are terrific. This home was exceptional when built over one hundred years ago and is still exceptional today. The fee to visit is very reasonable and the guides are very informative. Unfortunately, the original owner had his fortune lost... More

This heritage building is a treasure of architecture but even more impressive was our guide. She had been with the house for 17 years and she was so knowledgeable. I am a history buff and she was able to answer all my questions. She knew about the house but also talked about local history. She took time with us and... More

Visited this House and got a personal tour guide. He described the history of home and details that went into it. Its a beautiful historic house that is wonderfully restored with a fantastic view of the Charlottetown Harbour from the verandah. We also enjoyed the history lesson

We very much enjoyed our tour of this home. First of all, we were able to park right outside. The home is right downtown and right on the water - beautiful lawns. We paid for the tour with US currency , no problem. Did not ask for conversing or change. It was $5 for adults. Our tour guide was a... More

We did the tour at Beaconsfield House in Charlottetown, PEI. Really well preserved Victorian style home, and excellent tour. You see almost all of the home which has been preserved to period. Interesting history stop.

For $5, you get a tour of the house, in English of French. The guide was nice and explained a lot about the house. However, it was disappointing to learn that only a handful of things is original to the house. Everything else, as she explained, is only a guess or inspired by what it could've been like.

Being history buffs my husband and I were keen to take this attraction in. Beautiful home but guide was a little off. Enjoyed the history of the building and the grounds.

We toured many historic homes while touring the Maritimes. This was one of the largest and we were very enthusiastic about learning more. It is a lovely home, but you really need a tour to appreciate it. Our guide had memorized part of the script but offered very little. She gave a sentence or two and then just stood in... More
