Really enjoyed all the plaques that quoted Lucy's thoughts and love for the homestead she grew up in. The staff was helpful. I appreciated that they are protecting the memories, and value the imagination of a beloved author.

For a modest fee, either directly at the site, or combined with that at the Parks Canada Green Gables site, one can tour the grounds that inspired Lucy Maud Montgomery to write her Anne of Green Gables books and where she wrote her first four...More

We decided to start our AOGG tour first with LMM Cavendish home. We were happy we did! The bookstore had this young man who was very helpful and shared insights into the site. We walked around the gardens which had little excerpts/quotes of LMM life....More

We drove here after visiting the House, and to be honest we’re a little bit disappointed......there are foundations to see and some nice walks, but that was about it, and I don’t think worth the $6 entrance fee.

Even though all that remains are the footing of the orginal home, the highlight was some of the hstory by the great grandson of the author. His backgound gave meaning to what we were able to see of the remains.

The small walk (approximately a mile) from Green Gables was worth it to see the place where LMM grew up and wrote the famous book. We walked round the grounds (set in a beautiful meadow) and spoke to the people in the bookstore about her...More

This is simply the foundation for the home that she lived in, so don't expect much more. It was cool to see, but nothing amazing. It's part of Green Gables, so if you go there, you will be able to see this as well. The...More

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
