Restored to the 1860s period, the 5 acre grounds around this “picturesque cottage” offer a view into tranquil Victorian life and are a welcome and peaceful green space near the heart of downtown Charlottetown. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the garden paths or bring a picnic and rest awhile under the beautiful trees.
