Avonlea Village awarded Certificate of Excellence for 2014

Avonlea Village in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for 2014 by Trip Advisor, the world’s largest travel site. 

It is an honor to have Avonlea Village of Cavendish have received such a great award from Trip Advisor being such a prestigious award given only to those who uphold excellent customer satisfaction.

2012-05-anne-of-green-gables-bookAvonlea Village is a replica destination formed from the tale of Anne of Green Gables. This series was first published in 1908 and since publication, there has been more than 50 million copies sold and has been translated into 20 different languages. The story quickly became known world-wide and readers wondered if P.E.I. was a real place. Unlike many fiction novels, P.E.I. was in-fact a real place though; the characters and tales were fabricated by L.M. Montgomery – the author and creator of the famous tales.

Avonlea Village is a seasonal theme park that provides replicas of the town and characters of the very popular Anne of Green Gables series. It is nearly identical to the detailed town Anne lives in the stories that Anne admirers can experience for themselves. Many of the buildings and spots on the Avonlea Village site were the true structures that Montgomery was inspired by to write the books and used in the tales.

For most, this slow countryside lifestyle is out of reach and desired by many thus, experiencing such a way of life is yearned for by many readers.

Onsite Avonlea participants are able to attend school, dye wool, square dance, play musical spoons, dress in costume and so much more. The venue became a huge hit and their Certificate of Excellence is proof of that.

In order to determine who gets this award, Trip Advisor states: “To determine Certificate of Excellence honourees, we use a proprietary algorithm that factors in a variety of user-generated content. This includes review ratings, overall rating and quantity and recency of reviews. To qualify for a Certificate of Excellence, a hospitality business must:

•Maintain an overall TripAdvisor rating of at least four out of five

•Have a minimum number of reviews

•Have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least twelve months

A property’s popularity ranking on TripAdvisor is also factored into the algorithm.”bookmark

Venues aspire to have such an award and Avonlea has done so proving to their new and old customers that nearly all of their past attendees were very satisfied with the attractions they had while prompting others to attend as well.
