  • Quaint surroundings. Good history on the author that brought it all to life. PEI is beautiful! Canadians are Wonderful! Friendly! Just a joy to visit.
  • Enjoyable but pouring rain dampened the experience. Enjoyed the Green Gables settlement far more. Restaurants need a few more salads please.
  • Pretty cute little village. Nice eclectic mix of small shops and restaurants. Try the grilled cheese shop
  • Quiet area with amazing artisanal crafts and lots of restaurants...nice break from the hustle and Busselton of Cavendish
  • Great place for artisan goods and Cows ice cream! Home of the annual Cavendish Music Festival.
