I spent several days on Priceline trying to bid for a hotel in Chilliwack when I finally realized it would be more cost effective and relaxing to spend the night at a B & B. You will find the hosts of Riverview very friendly, and the views of the Frasier River are spectacular. If you're into bird watching, you are in paradise! If you're a foodie, don't miss this place! Come as a couple for a romantic get away, or with the family for a fishing adventure.
We arrived after a day of sturgeon fishing on the river (coupon available on Groupon and/or Living Social). Lynn provided us with great directions there (thank goodness as we no longer had cellular service) and then very graciously welcomed us, showing us around her beautiful, clean home and offering us tips on where to go for dinner. (We thoroughly enjoyed her recommendation to eat at Kuro Asian Cuisine--see our other review). She offers homemade cookies and tea and coffee throughout the day and a full hot breakfast with everything from eggs and frittata, sausage, bacon, juice, coffee, tea, plentiful fruit plate, yogurt, cereal, scones and whipped cream and more! Don't pay $80 for a hotel room when you can be at home away from home and get the best breakfast you could wish for just $30 more per couple.
We stayed in the blue queen bedroom. Lynn has thought of everything from the automatic light that goes on in the hallway to the shampoo/conditioner/soap and lotion dispenser in the bathroom. There is even a game room/theater available for families. And she works very hard to keep the place spotless. You'll feel right at home.
This was about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Seattle, but we had to wait about an hour at the border, so you may need to take that into consideration, if travelling from the US. We will be back to go fishing with our son, and plan to stay here again. They offer a full suite for families and welcome children. We won't waste our time looking anywhere else in Chilliwack next time. We very highly recommend this B & B as one of the best ones we've ever stayed in! It's great value for your money and you'll have fond memories, so don't miss a stay at Riverview.
