It was very nice. Did not know that you had to pay until we got to the Bookstore. Signs not clearly marked.

This section of the park is administered privately by Mrs Montgomery's family. Nice park and apple trees where she wrote next to the original house. Site is located across street from cemetery and Haunted Forest.

Ample parking as soon as you arrive. Great to see that history and culture is preserved on the Island. Visit the house, walking trails and grounds and don't forget to stop by the new gift shop. Great for large groups, for couples or families.

U must wear comfy shoes and be able to walk for 1 or 2 km. The trail is maintained by Canada Parks as a Historic sight so u pay a fee to get in. Rally gorgeous natural views of the Pei red earth.

She lived in a few different places on the island and with different family members. One house is still kept up and it's still within their family I believe. The other one, all that remains is the cellar. But the grounds are... More
