Enjoy the shoreline views, without the hassles of driving yourself, on this half-day sightseeing tour. Ride through a national park to see beaches and fishing villages, shop for local products, and visit a landmark farm made famous by Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic novel, Green Gables, complete with sight entry included.

Very beautiful house. The guy who was at the front desk did not know much. And he did not show us around... so basically I just saw the house. Not a good experience, but I think it would have been a good experience if someone showed us around...

This house has a neat story. 5.00 per adult to get in. Right on the bay. It’s classy without being over the top. We got there first thing on a Saturday morning and had the house all to ourselves. The “hosts” were very knowledgeable. It was a very beautiful Victorian home with a great view of the bay (especially from the 4th floor).

We walked up to Beaconsfield House from the cruise terminal and had a very enjoyable visit. The young man who showed us around really brought the place to life. He was very knowledgeable and his enthusiasm was infectious. I recommend a visit.

On arrival, the girl behind the desk asked if we were UK National Trust members. We were, so she let us in for free as they have a reciprocal arrangement. The guide who showed us around was very informative, but had a heavy local accent, so at first you had to tune in and listen very carefully. Once you had tuned in, the history of the building (although not old by European standards) shows very well how things were around a hundred years ago in this part of the world.

Wonderfully located on the water's edge on the outskirts of town.... well it appeared that way, as we were on a cruise so had a very pleasant easy walk from the ship to Kent Street. Direct route would have taken us about 15-20 mins but we meandered all over the place getting side tracked by the range of buildings we were passing en route! We loved Charlottetown... so much to see! Entry price was very cheap... worth every cent! The young man who gave us a free tour was excellent... bringing the past occupants of the house 'alive'... although their story was rather sad as Mr Peake went from having everything, to having nothing, in quite a short time. Every time you thought it couldn't get any worse it did! Every room was fully furnished as it would have been in Mr Peake's time, most of the furniture being original. The stove was incredibly elaborate! We were taken up into the 'eerie' at the very top of the house which gave us a 360 degree view of the surrounding area and out to sea. It was a super place to visit on a very sunny hot day! As I say .. a 'must do' without doubt!
