Birken House is located above a home based bakery in the grounds of a 110-year old farmhouse, and is rumoured to be the location of an original stagecoach stop on the Douglas Trail. The suite is south facing, with tasteful decor and big folding doors opening on to an awesome view . It's rustic but contemporary; airy in summer and cosy in winter. It's 30 minutes north of Pemberton, and is a great base from which to explore Birkenhead Provincial Park and Joffre, Gates and Anderson Lakes.

Awesome place! Pictures don't do it justice, we were all blown away by how amazing the place was. Eileen and Michael (and the dog, she was so cute!) were very friendly hosts. I would also recommend ordering stuff from the bakery, very delicious!
