The Filberg Heritage Lodge & Park is a fas­cin­at­ing his­tory and con­tem­por­ary guide to the former home and prop­erty of log­ging mag­nate and mil­lion­aire Robert Filberg and his wife Florence.

The Filberg Heritage Lodge and ParkIn a com­bin­a­tion of stun­ning pho­to­graphs and lively text, the book high­lights the rus­tic eleg­ance of the Filberg’s hand­craf­ted home, the dis­tinct­ive fea­tures of the lush, nine-acre water­front prop­erty and, of course, the lives of the Filbergs them­selves.

The lodge and grounds, loc­ated in the Comox Valley just out­side of Comox, B.C, were gran­ted her­it­age status in 1979. In August, the cent­ral Vancouver Island prop­erty is the site of the Filberg Festival, one of the largest arts and crafts fest­ivals in B.C.

The Filberg Heritage Lodge & Park may be pur­chased at inde­pend­ent book stores and through Amazon and Chapters. Paula is also happy to auto­graph and mail books. Email Paula for details.
