Not being golfers, we particularly enjoyed our off-season stay at the Cottages. One pleasant surprise: off-season stays come with peak season perks. Breakfasts were thoughtfully tailored to accommodate a food allergy, and Cottage services were top notch. The Cottages are situated to maximize views and the riverside location with rolling foothills and more distant snow covered peaks is spectacular. Situated mid-way on Highway 7 well past the urban sprawl of Metro Vancouver amongst the remaining visages of a rail or river commute, Rowena’s Inn is a miracle get away from the City … a short, and for the most part attractive drive to quiet bliss with the only evening distraction the opportunity to look at a night sky filled with stars. We stayed during the Eagle fest with thousands of Eagles drawn to the Salmon carcasses in the Fraser and other river tributaries. What a sight! The area offers several Estuaries, provincial and regional parks, and Forest Service spots. While the facilities at Rowena’s are geared to Golfers, I do wish they’d provide a walking map for the grounds and day trips from the site, as not all guests are content to sit by the fire or soak in the tub 24/7. I prefer an active holiday, with those more sedentary amenities appreciated at the close of the day. I’d also like to suggest that Rowena’s entertain snow showing and cross country skiing as options for the course trails once the snowfall sets in, and perhaps river excursions for Spring and Fall. One note: a few reviewers criticized the Inn based on maintenance issues. I found that unfair. Our maintenance concerns were remedied promptly, efficiently, and sincerely when we encountered a plugged kitchen sink and a water pump power outage. These aren’t issues that management could know about ahead of time. It takes a guests stay to reveal issues in need of remedy. At Rowena’s the remedy was delivered professionally and with immediacy.
