“An amazing Inn with wonderful literary history”
Reviewed 22 June 2019 for a stay in June 2019

Brought some friends to stay here for 2 nights. We had the West Wing which was 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms separated from the rest of the Inn. The beds are so wonderfully comfortable and the pillows are lovely. It’s the little touches that made our stay so memorable. First of all, Denise gave us a tour of the place and pointed out all the historical artifacts from the piano and the gramophone to the bookcase and Gog and Magog. Also, each room has a small ice bucket, glasses and a couple of water bottles. The care in the renovation of this property to make it fresh and new, yet very much in keeping with the historic feeling. The kitchen is big and modern and we had access to keep things in the refrigerator. We spent time in the parlour, but typical of the east coast, we ended up socializing in the kitchen. A nice continental breakfast was supplied each morning with everything from yoghurt and cereal to all types of bread, bagels and English muffins to toast and a variety of jams, jellies and peanut butter. There was fruit and oatmeal as well as tea, coffee and juice. The yard was lovingly maintained and it was a very short 8-10 minute walk down to a private beach. If you’re a fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery, or just a fan of lovely and comfortable inns, then this is the place to go. It’s a short drive to Cavendish or Kensington, yet peaceful and quiet with lovely views. Can’t wait to return!

“If you're visiting P.E.I for an Anne experience, this is unforgettable”
Reviewed 15 October 2018 for a stay in August 2018

I felt so fortunate to be able to spend a night in the L.M Montgomery room at Ingleside during my summer visit to P.E.I. The history of the place is wonderful, and the owners and staff took such pride and care in familiarizing guests with the details that make this such a special Inn. Just down the road from another Montgomery family home (now a museum) and the honest-to-goodness Lake of Shining Waters, The Montgomery Inn at Ingleside really made me feel I was getting to experience a bit of the writer's world firsthand. My room was clean and comfortable (and the air conditioning was wonderful!), and breakfast was lovely and served family-style. This is a special place indeed.

“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.
