My niece got married here in August and it was lovely. I enjoyed the history and charm of this old historic site. The staff were wonderful and informative. I would recommend taking a trip out here if you are in Prince George.

This is a very interesting glimpse into time a hundred years ago. There was only one other couple there when we visited. Basically it was just a self-exploration of the property. The only staff we encountered were in the general store. They, however were extremely well versed in the history of the homestead and were able to answer our questions very well. The intriguing aspect of the visit was the absolute quiet so hard to find nowadays.

Visited Huble Homestead with family recently. It was very peaceful out there, and not that busy for a weekend. They have a general store that sells food and other items, but if you want the homemade pancakes, make sure to get there before noon! The pie was good, though, especially with the vanilla ice cream. And it went perfectly with the coffee! The walk through was nice, although the area near the river was a bit too steep and uneven for my mother to traverse, as she has mobility issues. The place is affordable, though, and it's not that far outside of Prince George, so it makes for a pleasant excursion with family and friends.

I loved visiting this historic site. Not only are the Homestead buildings in great shape, the general store has breakfast/lunch. I had the pancakes with strawberries, and the price includes a cup of joe. Just north (40km) of Prince George, BC.

What an absolutely fantastic place this is. We visited to get away from the recent smoke in nearby Prince George, and we were not at all disappointed.
Greeted by a very cheery Hayley, who gave us a personal tour of the property, we enjoyed every second of the trip.
The site is very easy to find, though down a very long private road, make sure your vehicle is up to it. A little bumpy in places.

The Homestead is pretty much as it would have been when the Hubles left in the forties. What we all liked was the air of authenticity about the place. It would be very easy to spend all day at this attraction, so take your time and immerse yourself in BC history.
Also, take time to visit the Blacksmith shop and the First Nation fish camp, just a little way down the Fraser River.

Well worth the effort to visit, setting is grand with Fraser River providing backdrop that was originally the mode of transportation in this area.Pick a sunny day, have a picnic and listen to nature.

My friends and I visited the Huble Homestead Historical site during the Potato Festival. My friend won a prize in the potato peeling contest for longest peel! The .6 km river walk took us to the working blacksmith's shop, fish smoking house, canoe carving exhibit and one room cabin. We all enjoyed the cafe lunch with potatoes served, gift shop, exhibits and buildings. The site is quiet and I could imagine the isolation of living here and the anticipation of aboriginal and European traders arriving by boat or trail. Live music was played along with wood turning and blacksmith exhibitions. Costume dress is available and I thought the entrance by donation suggestion was very generous. It was a fun, interesting and informative afternoon.

Really far out but it's a pretty cool place. Easy to spend a few hours going through all the buildings and talking to the people. Make sure you stop in the general store, they have awesome candy.

Wow there is so much to see here that you best plan for 1\2 a day. there were on-site staff dressed in character doing duties as they would during the historic days. It truly was a blast from the past! I would strongly recommend a visit to the gift shop as they have Huckleberry Jam that is wonderful and great on pancakes also makes for an awesome giift.

It was quiet at the time we stopped in, so we were able to chat with the staff, and get a pleasant unrushed guided tour. The suggested donation was very reasonable, and we found the site very interesting, both for the kids and grown ups. the youngest one gave the amimals (chickens, rabbits, and sheep) as her highlight. Nice little gift shop too, and the pie was fabulous!
