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, Gates and Anderson Lakes

The space
While the suite is in a new building, we've incorporated materials and features of an old barn that was on the site to give it lots of character. The suite is large, airy and barn-like, with lots of salvaged wood, and is finished to a high standard. It has large south facing doors that open onto a balcony with a wonderful view over farmland, trees and mountains. It has a wood stove for use in winter months.

Birken is a great area as it is rural, but provides reasonably easy access to Pemberton (30 mins) and Whistler (50 mins). Its a good base for hikers, mountain-bikers (we can provide secure storage for your bikes) or those who just want to get away from the city and experience rural BC.

However, we also respect your desire for space and privacy when you stay with us. We will not come and knock on the door, but will communicate through text/message. That being said please feel free to knock on our door at anytime with any questions you may have, if you run out of anything or if we haven't provided something you need. You can also call in at the bakery if we're working there.
