  • 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. If you are are a true Kindred spirit this is a must do.
  • It's ok. Matthew's carriage ride is simply a ride through the field. We took a half hour ride and it was ok but we saw more from the car. The carriage ride was $65! There's only a gift shop and a house there that you pay a separate fee to walk through.
  • Wish I knew more of the story as there wasn't much to do or see.. Did it all in 15 minutes.. Cool nostalgia as it pertains to the island but a take it or leave it type of situation - nice to say we saw it.
