“Men it's not too bad”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

A business trip brought me out to PEI, and my wife wanted to come along and extend our stay with a view to visiting Cavendish and Anne of Green Gables. The day we drove to Cavendish from Charlottetown was a perfect sunny and warm day. The grounds of Anne of Green Gables were beautiful. The price for admission was reasonable. Pay the extra $2 to visit the author Lucy Maude Montgomery's home. We met the author's relatives at the store, who in turn, signed our purchased Anne of Green Gables book. The grounds, gardening and trails were beautiful. You could see how the author was inspired and wrote about these specific places in her world famous book. There are tourists from around the world here. I had overheard that Anne of Green gables is mandatory reading for students in Japan.

Men, if your wife wants to really explore this place, let her indulge - besides, the Green Gables Golf Course is right next door.

“Must see if you grew up with Anne of Green Gables!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Loved the attraction because it brought the book to life. If you didn't read the book or see the movie, the "wow" affect is not there.

“Authentic”

Well done. We felt like we were in the book. It brought back all those memories of the "Haunted Woods", etc.

“Day before opened for the season”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Excellent gift shop. Events for the children eg: how to dye wool. Vendors and employees are so friendly it is like spending an hour or two with relatives. We did not get into the house and sorry we did not. Do visit.
