  • According to my Wife this is a re-creation of the Avonlea Village set in the Anne of Green Gables Story. It is mainly a bunch of eateries, a few gift shops and a church where Anne got in trouble for t...  more »
  • Not knowing much about Anne of Green Gables, it was unfortunate that Cavendish leaned so hard into the tourist attraction around it. We were there for the National Park, and the rest was very tacky.  more »
  • The village was closed because it was off season, but the gift shop was so quaint! We enjoyed going there twice during our visit. They have beautiful Prince Edward Island authentic jewelry and great p...  more »

  • Nice to walk around. Ate a good lobster roll at Dave's and ice cream at Cow's. History of church moving & photos was neat to see. Not really a lot there that interested us but was free to park and walk around. Some shops may be more interesting to others.
  • It has wonderful shopping and restaurants. The surrounding is relaxing and beautiful.
  • Oh dear! Nothing to do with Anne of Green Gables whatsoever. Simply a tourist cash cow full of junk food and tourist shops. There's a church which L.M. Montgomery used to attend...however, it's not a church anymore and the most interesting thing about it is that it has been relocated. If you're interested in Montgomery, there are far more relevant and worthwhile things to do. As my husband said, Avonlea village was like Disneyland but without the fun!
  • Anne of green gables is a true inspiration to us all. I have read all her stories... how she threw that 40 yard touch down to win the super bowl for the patriots... ill never forget her. Anne the MAN
  • Good place that brings together some niche and higher end food and craft business. Since it used to be a living history site it may confuse some people as to its purpose but it 100% commercial offerings now.
