You will enter the property along a tree lined driveway and pass through the open hay field to arrive at our private estate property of 34 acres. The mountains views are breathtaking, you can hear the sounds of the river nearby and wildlife abounds most any time of year.....The mixture of pure luxury and relaxed comfort will make you instantly feel at home in this spectacular 3,200 sq. ft. country style home that features an open wood beam concept with an amazing floor to ceiling fireplace in the great room. The large dining table (seats 10 -12 comfortably) is a wonderful place to gather after a day filled with outdoor activities. The spacious open kitchen offers a gas range/oven plus an extra electric oven if required. A full size washer and dryer are on the main floor as well. There are 2 nicely appointed bedrooms on the main floor with river and mountain views along with a full washroom and a media room with a surround sound system and cozy gas fireplace. An adjoining games room offers a pool and/or ping pong table, infrared sauna and a roll-up door to outside for those warm summer days......The master Bedroom upstairs has its own private deck plus there is a huge open bedroom with 1 queen bed and 4 single beds, offering flexible sleeping arrangements. The 4 piece bathroom upstairs features a large soaker tub and separate stone tile shower. A queen sized sofa bed is located in the sitting area overlooking the great room.....Our natural wood sided home features covered decks on both sides for you to enjoy your morning coffee while viewing the fabulous gardens or meandering river, no matter what the weather. The front deck is built for entertaining, seating for 12 with a gas barbeque. There is an 8 person covered hot tub and a music system that can be used on the deck and hot tub area as well as inside the the great room. We have held numerous weddings on the property and the gazebo near the river is a favorite spot to say 'I Do'. The setting makes for incredible photos, and from every angle you will see the gardens, the river and the mountains! Besides simply relaxing you have the entire spectrum of outdoor activities at your feet. You can walk along the Lillooet river by crossing our field or take a short hike or bike ride up to the Camel's Back lookout area across the valley. Horseback riding is one of our favourite pastimes and we have plenty of trails starting right out the back door.... there are also endless mountain hikes nearby including beautiful Tenquille Lake or the Joffrey Glacier. You will want to have a camera handy to capture shots of the numerous eagles, black bears, and deer just to name a few which inhabit the area and are frequently seen on the property. Try your luck with fishing as the river is only steps away. You may also wish to go golfing at either of the two courses Big Sky or Pemberton Valley just 20 minutes away or three more courses in Whistler....In the winter you can cross country ski or snowshoe on the trails around the property and adjoining trail system. There are also endless backcountry skiing and snowmobile trails nearby including an easy ride to the old mining towns of Bralorne or Goldbridge. A 40 minute drive will take you to the foot of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, where you can enjoy skiing from November thru June. A fifteen minute drive will get you into downtown Pemberton where you can buy groceries or enjoy a hearty meal in one of the local restaurants. We look forward to hearing from you.. Come, stay, enjoy!

We built our vacation home in 1996. It is where we gather as a family all year round. We love to escape Vancouver as often as we can to enjoy the amazing scenery and endless outdoor activities as it is only a short 2 hour drive....
Candie purchased this chateau / country house in 1996
We got married at this beautiful, well maintained, cozy yet stunning property August 2014 and can't say enough amazing things about the home or the hosts.
The Hosts - so helpful, responsive, organized, take pride in their home, have great style and are just all-round lovely people.
The Home - the property was definitely the talking point of our wedding. We had a small intimate wedding and the house and private surroundings gave it that relaxed vibe we were going for. The house is stocked for hosting with everything from hot tub, pool table, kitchen supplies, surround sound... the list goes on.
We are so lucky to have found this gem and will definitely be back!
This is a magical place! Beautiful setting. Lovely, clean, comfortable home. We had a truly perfect weekend.
Myself and a few friends stayed here for a weekend in mid-August. The house and property were very clean and well-maintained, with plenty of space to spread out. The vast array of kitchen equipment provided was particularly appreciated.
There was plenty to do to keep occupied at the house itself. We took particular advantage of the various games and hot tub, but also passed a lot of time simply enjoying the scenery from the deck and yard - the area itself is stunning (night-time stargazing is not to be missed). The nearby Pemberton Meadows golf course was a great option for a round followed by dinner.
No complaints whatsoever - we definitely hope to return sooner than later.
We stayed at Rivers Bend as a group of 8 (2 families) and even with our 2 toddlers and 2 babies we still managed to have a relaxing time at this beautiful home. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you'd need to make some great meals (we did!!)... and the owners couldn't have been more helpful with all of our questions before we arrived and with organising for us to have a high chair and paddling pool at the house, and even leaving their own well loved family toys for our little guys to play with. Great home, great vacation - thanks!!
We had such a fantastic stay at Rivers Bend. The property is meticulously kept and sits on the banks of the Lilloett River in a beautiful valley. Our group is from nearby Vancouver and even we were blown away by the scenery.
We were a group of 12. The home is very spacious and easily accommodated our group. It really has it all. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare gourmet meals. The huge patio is positioned to soak up the sun all day long. The evenings present other options with a great fire pit area and covered hot tub.
This was our first visit to Pemberton. The area has so many recreational options. Our group played golf at nearby Big Sky, we rented ATVs, went fishing, and hiking all in addition to the bocce ball, fishing, horse shoes, ping pong, soccer, football that we enjoyed at Rivers Bend.
This property is perfect for families and larger groups that enjoy the outdoors and sightseeing. The owners are very nice and hospitable - there was Brie, crackers and fresh pie waiting for us when we arrived.
Rivers Bend will not disappoint!
This is a FABULOUS place to be. Rooms were comfy, decor beautiful, gardens stunning and perfect for our weekend. We are already booking for next year!!!!
