Bert’s Log Cabin

Choicest logs used in its construction

In 1942, John Humbird, owner of the Chemainus sawmill, built an exclusive resort and hideaway for himself and his closest friends.

It was made with the choicest logs and shaped by the best woodsmen. It was built 35 miles up Copper Canyon Road.

Bert Beggs of Chemainus later bought the log home, dismantled it and reassembled it in the site where it’s currently situated.

The Chemainus Valley Museum contains many interesting displays and stories about the area’s rich history.

The museum is located at 9799 Waterwheel Cres. It’s open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
