Yorkeen Room

Originally the drawing room of the house with a breathtaking view, this elegant space is dignified by elaborate plasterwork moldings in the 18th Century style. The marble-wrapped fireplace provides the focal point to the three inter-connecting reception rooms. The inlaid hardwood floor extends throughout the reception rooms of the house.

The Yorkeen Room is used for ceremonies, receptions or business meetings. It can accommodate up to 100 guests seated theatre-style. The room holds 9 round tables, with 6 guests per table, or up to 90 guests seated at 8’ tables set up banquet-style.

Langara Room

A spacious room paneled in rare Australian walnut, with glass-fronted bookcases and original leaded glass, the Langara Room is open to a second floor Minstrels’ Gallery, the carving of which took a master craftsman a year to complete. The carving depicts the oak leaves of England (from which the Davis family originated), the maple leaf of Canada, as well as the interlaced Knots of Brotherhood, the insignia of the Arts and Craft movement on which many of the architectural features of the house, both inside and out, are based. There is a working gas log fireplace in the room.
