If you're into Anne of Green Gables this spot is definitely for you and if you're not it's still an interesting place to visit. Lots of love and care has gone into every detail. Highly recommend it.

Wonderful tour given by Stephanie, a balm after our upsetting Marriott Gravenhurst experience, special little museum! Stephanie went far and above our expectations with an hour long personal tour. She was so kind with our shy six year old as well. Must stop here
