Property description

DRUMKEERAN HOUSE ON IVEY LAKE, PEMBERTON, B.C.

Designed by leading architect, Ted Murray, and built by local log builders and craftsmen, Drumkeeran House is a classic example of the revival of the use of square-cut dovetail chinked logs hewn from British Columbia’s massive Western Red Cedars.

Strikingly set on the headland point of Ivey Lake, a trophy fly-fishing lake, the private five acre estate of Drumkeeran is blessed with a stunning and unforgettable country location.

The estate lands boast over 800 feet of waterfront with private dock and are richly forested with mature fir, cedar, hemlock, pine, birch, maple and wild dogwood. Local wildlife abounds and you may see black bear, mule deer, rabbit, squirrel, chipmunk, eagles, hawks, ducks, woodpeckers, a profusion of songbirds and, of course, fish.

A small house on the property, Ardbeg Cottage, is the home of a full-time caretaker/concierge to take care of the house and grounds and ensure that every need of the guests at Drumkeeran House is looked after.

The lodge has a Canada Select Accommodation 5 Star rating and VRBO Luxury rating and features:
Accommodation for up to 14 persons in six ensuite bedrooms, each with their own lake or forest views, and a sofa bed loft. Three bedrooms qualify as master bedrooms, each with their own lake view decks.
All ensuites with under floor heating and marble, travertine or stone tiling;
A magnificent vaulted Great Hall with baronial-style open fireplace;
A full Country Kitchen suitable for professional event catering and featuring top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances and granite countertops;
Open dining room with adjoining deck area for al fresco entertaining;
A second vaulted family recreation room with wood-burning stove, 3D HDTV system, bar and additional kitchen.
A spacious billiard room and library suitable for meetings or small study groups;
Laundry room with washer and dryer
First growth reclaimed Douglas Fir flooring throughout;
Fully appointed with fine furniture, antiques and a rare collection of original North West aboriginal, Canadian and European art;
8 person outdoor spa hot tub
Outdoor BBQ

With the large number of attractions within a relatively short car journey from Drumkeeran House, it can easily act as the ideal base to explore a vast region of British Columbia. Its relative proximity to Whistler and to the Lower Mainland offers international travelers in particular the opportunity to sample the varied attraction of the Province with relative ease.

Summer activities include golf, fishing, hiking, mountain climbing, bike riding, horse riding, glacier flights, gliding, canoeing, kayaking, white water rafting, and swimming.

Winter activities include cross-country and downhill ski-ing and boarding (Whistler), heli-skiing, snow mobiling, ice climbing and snow shoeing.

As a special winter wonderland bonus, there are usually several weeks where Ivey Lake itself is frozen so as to allow for a range of activities on the ice right at Drumkeeran House.
The lakeside setting gives guests the opportunity to take advantage of the fact that Ivey Lake is the only trophy fly-fishing lake in the Lower Mainland area of British Columbia. In addition, Drumkeeran House provides ideal quarters from which to set out and fish literally dozens of nearby rivers and lakes.
