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:

“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.”

— Petrina Gentile

“Rowena’s Inn on the River is situated amidst uncommon beauty—all one needs to do is look up. Yes, the stars shine brightly over this remote 160-acre plot of land set upon the bank of British Columbia’s Harrison River, but the region’s most revered aerial sightings are of bald eagles.”

— Katie Nanton

“Just two hours from Vancouver this former English manor has been converted to a bed and breakfast property, Rowena’s Inn on the River. 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. The copper handrail in the drawing room once belonged to the original Hotel Vancouver, when it was located on the corner of Georgia and Granville streets. The chandelier in the piano room was purchased in England in the 1920s; each piece was individually wrapped for shipping.”

— Kristin Kent

“Located in Harrison Mills, BC and just a quick drive out of Vancouver, it has been continuously said that Rowena’s Inn is the Lower Mainland’s best kept secret.”

— Alexandra Staseson

“If you’re looking for a secluded getaway and a round of golf, stay in a luxury cottage at Rowena’s Inn on the River in Harrison Mills. It has an 18-hole, 72-par golf course and its own bird watching trails leading to the Harrison River.”

— Jessel Magazine

“Sandpiper Resort, where you can stay in the 1920s colonial-themed Rowena’s Inn on the River or one of the classic rustic cabins that have endearing names, like my second-night accommodation called Phyllis who offered views of the pond, surrounding golf course, river and mountains, while keeping me warm and cozy on a blustery evening.”

— Kellie Paxian
