Nestled at the base of majestic Mount Currie is the newest gathering space in the Sea-to-Sky, perfect for weddings, celebrations of life, family reunions, community fundraisers and more.
Daisy Lane Acres is a working farm steps from the village of Pemberton along the Friendship Trail, that features an upgraded barn and tent site that can accommodate up to 150 guests.
“It really feels private and serene,” owner Kristi Wells says of the venue. “It’s truly a unique and special space.”
Wells purchased the property in December 2021 after spending 32 years in Whistler.
“I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for a smaller community with a slower pace. The people in Pemberton are just so wonderful,” Wells says.
“I was looking for agricultural land, and this opportunity came up. It was a pretty big transition but it hasn’t been as difficult as I thought it would be.”
The farm, set on 10 acres, gets its name from the wild daisies growing amongst the hay in the backfield, which make for a beautiful backdrop for events and photos. Currently housing cattle and chickens, Wells bought a tractor and is excited to begin planting crops next spring.
The bright and sunny barn was converted to include a larger indoor space that accommodates cattle rather than horses. Decorated with authentic classic items and repurposed stall doors, the space also features a horse trainer’s room that includes vintage decor and a separate bathroom and kitchenette that makes for the perfect bridal suite or private room for family or performers.
“The barn has a really welcoming feel, like you’re in someone’s living room,” Wells says.
The tent site is directly adjacent to the barn, and garage doors roll up to join the two areas, creating the ideal indoor/outdoor space. Directly behind the barn is a fully fenced and paddocked three-acre field surrounded by trees, giving the ultimate feel of seclusion and privacy.
Daisy Lane Acres is easily accessible from town, just a 20-minute walk for any guests staying in Pemberton.
“We know that we’re really blessed in this corner of the world and the community we are in,” Wells says.
For that reason, Wells has asked that each event incorporate some kind of charitable aspect into its program, which will be featured on the space’s gallery of gratitude.
“I’ve been so blown away with how receptive and excited people are about that request,” Wells says.
