“Peaceful, back in time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

This off the beaten track national historic site is park of the golden raven network, they don't charge for entry just ask for donations.
First: the staff are all super friendly despite being in period costume which on this hot day must have been roasting!
They have plenty to look at and offer guided tours. There's ducks, chickens, award winning rabbits, sheep and this is in addition to the beautiful starlings nesting in the equipment shed. On the road out you will see cows and horses which adds to the delight if you have a toddler on board!
You can stop in the trading post and buy vintage candy (reasonably priced, and no taxes!) to keep the kids quiet for the 30 min drive back to Prince George.
Only off putting thing was in the main house there were literally a million flies! It was gross and stopped my 11yo enjoying the period features of the house- she commented there must be a body in the attic or something.
Awesome afternoon out, plenty of space for small ones to run around (river is fenced off :D ) and enough to keep the pre-teen interested in how good she has it now!

“Wedding Ceremony Site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I had my wedding ceremony at Huble a few weeks ago and overall, we were pleased with the experience. We planned on an outdoor ceremony, but it began to rain a few hours before the wedding and the staff was very helpful in moving everything in from outside. The only problem we ran into was the fact that we could not get ahold of them the morning of the wedding. We were trying to call to see if we could get some lights put into the barn that we were using as a back up plan and were unable to contact them after multiple calls. I'm pretty sure we must have had their downtown office number. Other than that, it was a beautiful location and I would recommend their facility for a wedding ceremony or just a little day trip out of town. Cheers!

“A walk in the past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The Huble Homestead is a fantastic place to spend the day. It was all built up, and is managed by, volunteers. Interpreters dress up in period costumes. The have many events throughout the year. They have a period store (with lovely pickles). It is also a great place for a picnic. Dogs are welcome.

“Nice place for a picnic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

This place is a local tourist attraction and historic site. Often school classes visit here in June when teachers are looking for something to "do with the kids". It's a nice place to visit on a summer day for a picnic or a quiet read by the river.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

There isn't really a way to rate this, Huble Homestead is an important part of the history of Prince George. Its a community that has been kept for us all to remember over the years. Its great for people to learn the history and hardships of settlers in northern BC
