Only a couple of hours East of Vancouver, Rowena’s Inn on the River is a natural work of art.
Snapshot of what the press is saying:

“(Take) the scenic Highway 7…it runs north along the Fraser River, winding through several communities including Mission, where you can stop to stretch your legs at the Cascade Falls Regional Park, a 22-hectare park renowned for its spectacular waterfall, or go fishing, boating or swimming on Harrison Lake in Harrison Hot Springs. It’s a fantastic route to ride a motorcycle, too.” – Petrina Gentile

“Rowena’s Inn on the River is situated amidst uncommon beauty — all one needs to do is look up.”

— Katie Nanton

Featuring one of British Columbia’s finest golf courses, the Sandpiper Resort features ancient towering Douglas firs which frame the course as it runs along the Harrison River.

— Fiona Tapp

“There are stories at every turn.” 

– Kristin Kent

From scenic coastal escapes to cozy mountain hideaways, Rowena’s offers great food and drink, fun activities, and outdoor adventure-all within a short drive of Vancouver.

— Amber Turnau

“The Harrison River Valley offers some of the best birding and outdoor adventuring in BC.” 

– Brian Jessel

Harrison has a natural setting that inspires and soothes: the ancient forest, deep emerald lake and river and mountains overlooking the valley create a special kind of hush.

— Kellie Paxian

“Dozens and dozens of splendid bald eagles perched high in the trees around us, their distinctive white heads bright in the autumn sunshine.”
