“Interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

We only really toured the buildings and missed the guided tour. It was like going to a museum and was neat to see but not overly exciting. Flowers and view were very nice though

“For a Diehard Anne Fan”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Just do your research and know what you are going to see. We found that many around the island were very unfamiliar with the movie form of Anne of Green Gables, the attraction sites are from the author's home places and were what inspired her books, not where the movie was filmed. I would recommend that unless you read the books and are truly a diehard fan you might want to save your money.

“Don't Miss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

A stop here is essential for any Anne fan. The house still inspires the imagination, and you can almost feel Maud's spirit lingering in Lovers Lane and the Haunted Woods. Highly recommend.

“Charming! Wish we could have spent longer here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Anne's Green Gables isn't *quite* the way I imagined it, but it is adorable and we had a fun afternoon visiting. The house is full of details from the book, and the kids had a great time filling out the scavenger hunt in their Xplorer booklet (and got a prize for completing the booklet).

The gardens were lovely, and we had a nice walk down Lover's Lane and the Haunted Wood while looking for Dryad's Bubble and Violet Vale. The kids loved getting into the buggy and trying on the straw hat with the attached red braids.

We stopped in the little cafe and had delicious ice cream, and even a bottle of raspberry cordial. It was an afternoon of innocent fun imagining a time long since gone by.
