Green Gables, Cavendish

(950+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Landmark
A literary landmark, Green Gables represents the actual historical setting behind Canada's best-selling children's book series from the early 20th century. Author of the much beloved "Anne of Green Gables," Lucy Maud Montgomery spent her summers on this idyllic farm, which belonged to her cousins. The complex lies within a national park and features a Victorian-style farmhouse and a barn. Walk through the rooms named after the novels and "haunted" by the ghosts of the writer and her heroine--a willful red-headed orphan. The attraction organizes several engaging activities for visitors of all ages, including costumed actors bringing Montgomery's stories to life. Make Green Gables a part of your Cavendish vacation plans using our Cavendish vacation builder.

  • Admittedly, I didn't look much into this site before arriving so for some reason thought it was a newer built tourist draw. Nope... It was her aunt and uncle home, a place where Montgomery drew inspir...  more »

  • Absolutely wonderful. One of the high points of our trip to PEI. This lovingly preserved and maintained farm is idyllic and well worth your time if you're on the island. Don't miss the Lovers Lane stroll...it was beautiful. Friendly staff and easy access to the site. One area under construction as of June 2017, which appears to be a restaurant or something.
  • One of the most famous buildings in PEI would be the house that Lucy Maud Montgomery lived in and the house that Anne's home was based off. This lovely building is located in The Prince Edward Island National Park, 8619 Cavendish Rd, Cavendish. I find this house a very remarkable and beautiful place. If you have read the books you will feel a connection to it or if you have watched the musical. Even if you have no connection to the house it is a beautiful property and has a very nice garden.
  • Cool little spot to visit when you're already on the northern side of the island. Learn about the literature and Montgomery's history. Not worth going out of your way for unless you're a big fan but it's an easy visit if you're already on the island!
  • Cute place and good spot to walk around. It's not 'magical', but low key and realistic. The house gives you the museum experience, and there are actors and things going on outside. I enjoyed it more than the kids; but they were happy with the nature trail and getting raspberry cordial and cinnamon buns.
  • My wife really liked it. Nice grounds and trails and I read that the house is an accurate representation of the house in the book.
