Great visit if you're interested in the history of the region. Not crowded and easy to access. We were there in the middle of the summer and were quite surprised by the lack of tourists.

OGH is an important landmark in the City Of Fredericton. It's the official residence of the Province's Lieutenant Governor, but frequently open to the public for special occasions. The building and grounds are very historic and fully restored. A visit is recommended

Special occasion by invitation only. The history and hospitality was amazing. I can not comment on the standard visitation but I think it would be a good way to get some information and history.

I'd hate to tell you not to go but I must be honest with our experience. It was the last day of tours for the season and the tour guide was chatting with a officer of some kind for over 20 min while we waited patiently in the waiting room. We couldn't wait any longer, as we were heading back... More

We visited this beautiful 3 storey old stone mansion on three occasions, the last being a New Year's Day Levee hosted by the Lt Gov himself. There was a huge attendance by families and well wishers from all walks of life. We were treated with hot apple cider and a delicious seafood chowder followed by home made chocolate cookies. You...

Just walking past you can sense all the history that comes with this beautiful property. The inside is very much in the time period of the early days of Fredericton. The grounds are quite lovely as well!

Government House is one of those preserved gems that are hard to find in the "new world". Great lengths have been taken to preserve the house in its 19th century glory. It's a quick visit but worth it.
