We wanted to see this historic house and left with a feeling of warmth and family as the tour guide walked us through the various rooms of the house and explained the family situation and also the restoration of this beautiful house. The grounds are also exceptional. Very reasonable price for the tour.

Likely the most famous home in Charlottetown. Well laid out and furnished in period furniture of the period. A great way to seen how the rich and famous of this city once lived.

This historic house is situated on a rise overlookin the water. The architecture both inside and out is worth the visit. We had a wonderful guide who was knowledgeable about both the architecture and the history.

Only $5 and includes a 20min tour, a lovely example of early Victorian house. Won't use much of your time and worth a look.

This is an absolutely stunning house. Great tour guide and information about the house. The floors and lights I found the most impressive.

Don't pass by the house because it looks plain on the outside. The interior is exquisitely decorated and furnished. Reasonable admission.

Very nice tour of a beautiful home. The furniture & decoration are all great to look at. Our tour guide did a great job. My grandmother had lived in this house as a student back in the 1940s so it was wonderful to see the history behind it.

We make a habit of finding a home or old mansion of historical significance when we visit any city - so this was the one in Charlottetown. It has been reasonably well restored although most of the furniture is not original (but period pieces). The guide was lovely and engaging. The tour was short, but we felt like it was... More

Unfortunately, we were only able to see the outside of this beautiful home. We were disappointed to learn it was closed during our visit to Charlottetown.
