“Classic historic house, beautifully maintained.”
Reviewed 20 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

The Montgomery Inn is the home of family of the same name. Early PEI Senator Montgomery (of the Lucy Maud family) built in the mid-19th century, this Inn has had a beautiful renovation to modern standard. They have been careful to keep the decor consistent with the history and era of the building - with the addition of modern bathrooms, television and internet service.

I recommend the King Suite rooms. Lovely, spotlessly clean.

Hosts are gracious, generous and polite. Nice light breakfast available as part of your room fee.

“Comfortable, Clean, Serene and Historic”
Reviewed 26 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

More than just enjoying the history, the fandom and the gorgeous setting, my stay here provided a relaxing atmosphere where all that I needed was provided and organized at my fingertips. The room and bathroom was clean and fresh and thoughtfully arranged. The owner and innkeeper made me feel welcome and they were helpful in both small and large ways. I loved my several nights stay at Montgomery Inn at Ingleside and hope to return again someday.

“Peaceful Stay”
Reviewed 1 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Our host Paul was absolutely perfect! He told us about the history of Montgomery Inn, showed us various artifacts, and was very flexible to our schedule. We stayed in the Senator Suite which was the largest room on the main floor. The recent renovations are beautiful and we enjoyed soaking in the tub after a full day of sightseeing. Paul also showed us a trail behind the house that would lead to an area where we could view the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Wow! What a view! This location is adjacent to the Anne of Green Gables Museum and across from "the lake of shining waters". I wish we had stayed more than 2 nights as there were so many little areas to sit and relax inside and outside the Inn.

“Wonderful B&B with historic roots”
Reviewed 23 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed just one night in the Lucy Maud Suite - it was very clean and comfortable. We had a wonderful view. Loved hearing about the history of the place - a must-stay for any Lucy Maud Montgomery fan! A lot of work has been done by Paul on the home, making it a wonderful option for travelers to this area. There was a nice area outside on the deck to sit and relax, as well as nice indoor areas. A simple continental breakfast was served. Would be nice to come here again as a family and rent out the whole place!

“Great for family reunions!”
Reviewed 23 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We rented the Montgomery Inn for a week-long family reunion and had an amazing time this historic property. The owners were very very responsive to our needs and accommodated all of our requests.

The kitchen is nicely appointed with everything you need, and we had 14 people comfortably seated in the dining room. The bedrooms were very nice - the air conditioning was whisper quiet (we had very hot weather this week!). Everything is modern and updated - the bathrooms are new and clean.

The location is great - close to amazing beaches and yet off the beaten track.

The icing on the cake is the history that comes with this property. It isn't hard to see where Lucy Maud got some of her inspiration!
