With 2020 in the rear vision mirror and 2021 looking up we decided it was well overdue to share some exciting new updates at the farm along with a few things to do in Pemberton this summer.
Earlier this year we closed the main B&B building that we have been operating out of since 2016 and moved our family into that space. There were challenges with doing socially distanced by the room bookings and full service breakfasts that seemed insurmountable. In its place we have opened The Cabin. A modern 1400 square foot 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom accommodation with unbeatable views.
To the new Cabin we added lots of comfortable amenities. There is a complete hydrotherapy setup including a cedar barrel sauna, hot tub and cold plunge tub. For those who are aware of the health benefits, you’ll love the private access to this luxurious feature. For those who are yet to be acquainted with the vitality using these amenities bring, you’ll be hooked before you leave!
Also at the Cabin you can sip your morning coffee on the new patio while admiring the gardens and view of Mount Currie. Or you can sit in the love swing in the wildflower garden while also taking in the views.
Despite not providing a full service breakfast, we are still offering farm inspired breakfast baskets for guests during their stay. Although July and August are looking busy there are a few mid week nights still available. September and October are also still showing some available nights. Check the booking page on our website for availability and reservations.
What to Do in Pemberton
There is a long list of things to do while visiting Pemberton this Summer. We have put together our top 5 things to do in Pemberton this summer. Its definitely not exhaustive so when you make a reservation talk with Gus about options catered to your groups interests.
- Horseback riding with Copper Cayuse Outfitters: This is a signature experience while visiting Pemberton. Select from an hourly ride all the way through to a 3 day horsepack trip through the mountains and everything in between. The team at Copper Cayuse knows how to share the most memorable spots in the valley and in the mountains by horseback.
- Jet boat trip on the Green River with Whistler Jet Boating: Jet boating on the green river is a really unique way to see the valley. Not only is it a heart racing trip through the whitewater, but it also gets you to parts of the valley that are only accessible by river. So you will see aspects of the area that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to. Also, Eric is a bit of a legend with long roots in the area so if you ask the right questions you may learn a thing or two about the mountains around here.
- Walk the Sunflower Maze at Laughing Crow Organics and the Pemberton Beer Farmers: Starting in late August this picturesque family friendly maze is not to be missed. Walk through a field of over head sunflowers while taking in the views of the surrounding mountains. The location of the farm is central to the Pemberton Meadows which means you can see all surrounding mountain peaks. Once you escape from the maze the Beer Farmers brewery and patio is conveniently close, so you might as well try one of their award winning beers.
- U-Pick berries and produce from North Arm Farm: Pull into North Arm Farm on highway 99, grab a coffee or old drink and then walk the fields of berries and produce. The opportunity to pick and pack home produce is a great way to spend an afternoon with the family. Its also a great souvenir when you pull out a bag of frozen berries later in the year and reminisce about your time in Pemberton as you sip on your smoothie. Oh and the views from North Arm Farm aren’t too bad either.
- It’s impossible to write a “things to do in Pemberton” list without including Hike Joffre Lakes Provincial Park. The park has been closed for 18 months due to crowding and COVID restrictions. It recently re-opened after a much needed rest. Since re-opening there is now a park permit required to hike the trails. Don’t worry, they are free and relatively easy to get. Simply log into this webpage no sooner than 7am the day before you intend to hike and reserve your spot. Its a great way to ensure the park isn’t over run when you go to take in its majestic turquoise lakes and glacial surroundings. Oh and while you’re there remember to tread lightly. Pack out what you pack in, be considerate of other hikers, be prepared with proper footwear, water and snacks.
