Prince Edward Island Canada

5 Days

Trip Overview

Prince Edward Island (PEI) is one of the thirteen provinces and territories of Canada. It is the smallest province in terms of land area and population, but the most densely populated. The island has several nicknames: “Garden of the Gulf”, “Birthplace of Confederation” and “Cradle of Confederation”. Its capital and largest city is Charlottetown. It is one of the three Maritime provinces and one of the four Atlantic provinces.

We’re willing to bet that one of the first things that comes to mind when you think of PEI is Lucy Maud Montgomery’s beloved character, Anne of Green Gables. She has captured the hearts of readers worldwide, and her red braids and straw hat are an iconic PEI symbol. On this vacation you can immerse yourself in the magical world of Anne!

Trip Itinerary

Arrive in PEI :

Upon arrival in Charlottetown PEI, you will pick up your rental SUV, pick up your rental wheelchair then make the drive to your Inn in Cavendish.

The Inn you’ll be staying in dates back to the 1850’s.  It was the home of  Pierce and Rachael MacNeill and is closely tied to the life of author Lucy Maud Montgomery.  Many “Anne” fans and L.M. Montgomery scholars from all over the world visit the Inn each year. In addition, Pierce and Rachael MacNeill were the adoptive parents of the young girl who was the inspiration for Anne of Green Gables.

Cavendish :

Imagine yourself in Marilla’s kitchen as you walk through Green Gables Heritage Place located in the Prince Edward Island National Park. Take a walk down Lovers Lane and The Haunted Woods. You’ll want to take home a keepsake from the onsite gift shop as well. Take a guided tour of the site of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Cavendish Home.

Adjacent to the homestead is the Cavendish United Church where L.M. Montgomery worshipped. The church was built by the Presbyterian congregation in 1901. The organ that she played from 1903-1911 remains on display. Her funeral service was held here in 1942.

Nearby, you can visit Avonlea. Avonlea was the fictitious name that Author, L.M. Montgomery gave to Cavendish. In addition to the original schoolhouse she taught in, the Minister’s residence and the 1872 Historic Long River Church, Avonlea Village offers replications of houses and shops from the time of Anne of Green Gables.
