“Great place to stop and see”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

We didn't get to see this attraction during peak season but it was still pretty good. Well taken care of and very friendly staff. I am not sure if there is more going on in the warmer months but I do think more interactive things for kids would be ideal. Glad I was able to see this while I was in PEI. Great staff- very friendly.

“Do take the time to visit!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

If you are a fan of Anne and want to see Green Gables as she did, then you must find the time to visit this great historical site. It was magical and left us all just so much more in love with Lucy's stories!

““Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

L.M Montgomery infused so much adventuresome spirit in the little red-headed orphan girl that as a young reader felt I had met my own "kindred spirit".

Fans will find the trip worth it...from seeing the Green Gables farm house that L.M. Montgomery visited as a young girl and served as an inspiration for the Anne series to the Haunted Woods in the back. The visit is best geared for the literary fan who probably will be delighted by "seeing" what was described in the books. Interestingly, a descendant of the author was on hand and so bought a book to have it signed. The horse and short buggy tour was somewhat touristy but since came to learn about the house/see the place overlooked that.oh, and since bought lunch, had some of the cordial (sweet) offered with the lunch

any years later this character remains one of my to ten fictional favorites.

“A real treat for readers of Anne of Green Gables”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

As a sixth grader, I read Anne of Green Gables. What a treat as a 34 year old woman to finally see the place that inspired the book's locale! You can take a walk along Lover's Lane and through the Haunted Wood. Also an easy trail walk to get to the resting place of L.M. Montgomery. Top off your visit with some Raspberry Cordial from the café on site. If you want to walk the trails, visit the house, and grab a light lunch 2 hours is plenty of time. We went in the off-season and the place was not crowded at all. The fee was incredibly modest in the off-season - about $12 for two adults. Overall, a really lovely visit!

“All the Anne of Green Gables Fans must go”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We really enjoyed walking around and taking pictures of this fabulous place. It was very relatable to the movie, which we enjoy. We went in June, not too crowded. A wonderful place to visit.
