Avonlea Village offers a combination of both heritage buildings, and new buildings that are recreations of 19th century Cavendish homes and businesses.

Avonlea was the fictitious name that Island author, Lucy Maud Montgomery gave to Cavendish in her most famous novel, Anne of Green Gables. Our idea was to re-create the look and feel of the community that Montgomery lived in and wrote about.

Browse through our eclectic shops and take a stroll through our beautiful gardens. We offer delectable food and premium treats that will tempt all of your senses. Relax on a shaded bench and enjoy COWS ice cream.

Visit our 3 heritage buildings: the 1876 schoolhouse, the 1906 Minister’s residence and the 1872 Historic Church.
