We stayed in one of the cottages and it was just perfect. Very cosy and private with a log fire for the evening. Picturesque setting on the river with a mountain backdrop. We got up early and went for a peaceful swim and then soak in the hot tub. Also had dinner and breakfast there which were both delicious. Could...

Spectacular setting friendly service. Food wait time excessive but the place was catering for a wedding so restaurant service slow. Not a hardship to wait as view is amazing. However food was disapointing. It looked good but that's where the praise ends. We all ordered duck which was chewy the veggies were frozen and potatoe creation was artistic but didn't...

After having our fantastic wedding dinner in the restaurant and spending our first night in one of the gorgeous cottages - we awoke to car trouble.

Sandpiper golf course is my favorite course in the lower mainland Vancouver. It's 1 to 1 /12 hours from Vancouver, so if you can, stay the night in one of the awesome cabins. Rustic and lovely all in one, with a real fireplace, huge jacuzzi tub, nice outside deck and great views of the course and river. You can get...

We stayed at Rowena's Inn on the River for one night while traveling. There is also a golf course that is part of the property. We don't golf so can't say much about the course other than the grounds looked lovely. The Inn itself was the family home that was converted to an Inn just over 20 years ago. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Old world opulence blends with new world convenience. Secluded on a 160-acre estate Rowena’s Inn on the River is a grand, English-style manor that was converted into a boutique resort. The rooms offer waterfront or garden views, and sumptuous king-size beds, dressed in deluxe duvets, feather pillows and crisp linens. Large windows bathe the European-infused elegance in natural light, and the furniture exemplifies a timeless stylishness. The cottages have heated-slated floors, deep-soaker jacuzzi tubs for two, glassed-in showers and handcrafted, river rock wood-burning fireplaces.Rowena’s outstanding personalized service and attention to detail is guaranteed with only five rooms in the Inn, a two-bedroom gatehouse and four luxurious cabins. Professional, courteous staff has become an unquestioned hallmark of Rowena’s Inn through a commitment to responsive and attentive service. ... more   less
