  • There are two horses. I like to go there. There is nice view.
  • A must do at PEI. Historic property, cute gift shop and while the carriage ride was pricey, it was fun and worth it.
  • My wife had this on her to do list before we toured the island. It was a good place to visit and get acquainted with the spirit of Lucy Maud Montgomery. The walk through the small house showed many different artifacts from the past that were a part of our growing up lives. Took a walk on Lovers Lane to celebrate our 50th anniversary.
  • It's a beautiful area. And for big fans of the book I'm sure it would be better. For me, I'm some what familiar with the story. It was nice to walk the grounds a bit. I didn't bother paying for the museum. It was a nice excuse to drive to that side of the island.
  • I am a life time Anne of a Green Gables kindred spirit and this place for me was absolute heaven. To be honest I felt so moved I cried! They have the cabinet that Lucy and Anne made their window friend, Katie Maurice in as well as lots of other personal items of Lucy's, they even let me play the organ that was used for Lucy's wedding and it's set on the real Lake of Shining waters she refers to in the book and that they film in the movie. The carriage ride was expensive but again it was so so beautiful and takes you right to the place you have read about plus Matthew was the real thing for me! So worth it. Because it is quiter and less touristy than Green Gables you really connect in the way you imagine. (Written by Jade, not Levi though he liked it too!). If you are are a true Kindred spirit this is a must do.
