It's a tiny little one room museum that sells LM Montgomery books and merchandise. They sell a combo ticket that includes the grounds and Green Gables and the guide that collected the fees gave us a quick tour of the items in the museum which made it much more meaningful. It's then a beautiful walk down hill through the property and cutting through the golf course which cleverly encompasses the woods that were featured in the Anne of Green Gables series. You end up arriving at Green Gables from below which is really pleasant, although you still have to get through lots of tourists before entering the premises.

This was great and connects to the Anne of Green Gables house and a small bookstore. Be prepared to walk! It is beautiful though! You can see the site of the homestead and school, as well as some lovely farm scenery. Also, something that was slightly disappointing- It leads you to think it is the original haunted woods and lovers lane, but if you read the books and go to some of the other museums, you see it is not, as the original is a poplar forest. The cemetery where L.M. Montgomery is buried, along with her mother, and grandparents is nearby too.

Stop here before you go to Green Gables. This is the site where Lucy Laud Montgomery really live and has a wonderful walk with comments by her. Even more exciting is walking where she walked along side the actual fence she walked. Quite a treat.

The LM Montgomery House is adjacent to Green Gables in Cavendish, and we'll worth a visit if you are interested in the author's life.

The family (descendants of the grandparents who raise Lucy Maud) have worked to recreate a significant piece of the magic that surrounded the authoress and that she in turn put into her stories. Walks around the old house foundation include thoughts provided by Montgomery herself in her works and journals. They (the family) was also on-hand and happy to talk about the Montgomery's life in PEI and afterwards, and the family link made the whole thing very real.

We walked through the "haunted woods" to get to the foundation that used to be LMM's house. The interesting part, was the little plaques through the woods with quotes of LMM's. Also, when we got to the bookstore/giftshop just past the foundation of the old homestead, the lady there, who was a relative of LMM was awesome, and told us stuff no one else did. She got me so intrigued that I bought the first journal of LMM and just started reading it, and it's very interesting. I was able to ask this lady several things that I wanted to know, such as why didn't LMM's father raise her after her mother died? And several other things and she filled us in on some interesting things. I can see how some people might say it's just some stones in the ground, and not worth paying for. But we found the whole thing charming. Preserving this site is a labour of love for this family, and I think they've done a wonderful job.
