Nestled in the Prince Edward Island National Park is the charming and picturesque Green Gables House that, in the early 1900s, inspired author Lucy Maud Montgomery to write her celebrated novel Anne of Green Gables. Tourists flock here every year to ramble around the famous house, which served as a setting for the treasured tale, and to also enjoy the beautiful park that houses Green Gables. The house itself is filled with interesting displays, and also contains the charming Butter Churn Café and a visitors centre with restored rooms. There are trails to be explored (fans of the book will recognise Lovers Lane and the Haunted Wood), guided evening walks, children's activities, restored gardens and many other treasures to be enjoyed.

Address: 2 Palmers Lane, Cavendish
