  • Most of the attractions here were closed when we visited after Labor Day, but the charm of this little recreation was wonderful. It doesn't take long to wander through here, but well worth seeing for ...  more »

  • This is a challenge to review. Hard NOT to compare it to how it used to be. We used to go early in the morning PAY to enter and enjoy a day's activates with staff in period costume walking you through an exciting day in what one could imagine was a day in the world of Anne of Green Gables. But that was then. NOW it is FREE , that is upside. There are some interesting restaurant choices and a shop or two. So as far as a place to stop and browse some shops. It is really like reviewing a mall. We Did LOVE the music show that continued from the 'old' set up. Instead of being included in the entrance fee, now they charge a very reasonable fee for nearly an hour of music. We enjoyed that very much, Mike Pendergast and Leon Gallant are so talented and personable. We enjoyed being able to get a taste of their music at such a reasonable cost and in such an intimate environment. I do hope that will continue and wish I could review that part of the experience separately , as it would get 5 stars !!
  • They've brought in summer of the original buildings that L. M. Montgomery taught, lived and worshipped in. The little village is lovely and the shops are full of delightful finds
  • Visited in July 2016. Was an ok place to pick up souvenirs and the like. Had some Cows ice cream that was fantastic and did a little shopping. From reading other reviews I hear that this place used to have a lot more interactivity. I wish it was a bit more now. Was it ok, yes. Could it be better, oh yes.
  • After visiting Avonlea Village this past June 2016, I felt that the atmosphere was terrible; it felt like a ghost town. Before, there was excitement from the moment you walked through the door with the actors all in character, which was fantastic. Having the opportunity to dress up in antique clothing and getting pictures taken was a lot of fun. The carriage ride, along with the little petting zoo was great. The entertainment the musicians provided all day was very enjoyable, it really lifted the spirits of those who entered the village. At the end of the day, getting the chance to interact with the actors and play the fair games with them was a blast for the young as well as the old. I feel that when a person goes on vacation, a person plans to spend some money. Maybe the problem came down to not having the proper advertising, and people were not informed or aware of everything that came with the entrance cost. At the end of the day, I feel that P.E.I. has lost a great attraction and experience while visiting the island on your vacation.
  • I was greatly disappointed. After reading all about this site on a Web page I was expecting to see period dressed people and workers and buildings to walk through. The only thing it was though was a trap to get you to spend way to much money. We got ice cream at cows which was good. That tasted great. We went to moo moo to eat and we spent close to 100 for 5 people to eat and get a drink. Extremely high priced. The food was ok I tried a sandwich I never would have tried elsewhere. We walked through the church and every building there and all the buildings were there for you to buy something or eat.
