My wife dragged me to Beaconsville House and I’m glad she did. Our tour guide Harris was exceptional with the background stories and history of the home. We learned something new about living in those times.

For only $5 a person it’s definitely worth it and the tour takes between 30 and 45 minutes.

Harris made history come alive. Thank you!

This is a great example of life on PEI back in the day. The history of the trading business, the lifestyles of the day. It was well preserved and the guides are so well versed in their knowledge.

Their were only four people in our tour, and we had a great guide. We learned all about the man who built the house and who lived there. Everything is in great condition. A must see if you are in Charlottetown!

So let me start with my tour guide was fantastic! As with many of these historic sites a lot of your experience comes down to the tour guide. These people have history backgrounds and they’re interested in being there. They are very attentive and they know everything on the script that needs to be pointed out and. They also can answer just about any crazy question you have. The home is very detailed and it’s a good restoration. The history of the home is really interesting given it’s background as a nursing dorm. It has been taken back to the era of the original family ( sad story).

Outside in the garage they have classes and or demonstrations so if you get a chance you should check the schedule and attend one of those. Have a walk through the gardens, they’re amazing and the view from is fantastic. You can walk back into town in a leisurely manner and it’s quite lovely. It’s a great beautiful historic section of town.
