We had the amazing opportunity to stay in the new Luxury Cabins at Rowena’s Inn on the River.
Rowena’s Inn is located at the Sandpiper Resort in Harrison Mills, which is approx. an hour and a half from Vancouver.
These new cabins have some of the same rustic elements as the classic cabins do, but have some more modern touches. There are also a variety of sizes to accommodate larger groups.
We stayed in the Eagle, which is one of the 2-bedroom cabins. It was the perfect size for a family getaway. Each bedroom has a queen-size bed with a bathroom in-between the two bedrooms. The couch in the living room is also a pull-out…in case your kids don’t like to share a bed…or you have more than two extras with you 🙂
Take a look at these stunning cabins!
Our stay at Rowena’s came at the perfect time. Gabrielle, my wife, had just finished a busy report card season as a teacher and definitely needed some downtime! So we pulled the kids out of school and zipped away to Harrison Mills for a little staycation.
As I said, the resort is located in Harrison Mills right along the Harrison River – aka a stunning backdrop!
The resort at Christmas is magical. All the cabins are decorated for Christmas inside and out. There are lights throughout the resort as well as in the Clubhouse Restaurant.
There is a ton to do right at the Resort. From golfing at Sandpiper Golf Course, to exploring the walking paths through nature, eating at the Clubhouse Restaurant – you don’t need to go anywhere else!
Every November, thousands of visitors come to Harrison Mills to attend the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival. It’s the World’s LARGEST concentrated gathering of bald eagles!!!
There is an Eagle viewing path and lookout right at the resort. It was such a cool experience to witness and pictures truly don’t do it justice!
We had the opportunity on our first night at dinner to meet Betty-Anne Pretty, who is the daughter of the original owners of the property. The resort used to be the Pretty’s summer home before it was turned into B&B in 1995. It’s a fascinating story and you can read more about it here if you are interested.
Meals at the Clubhouse were incredible! We had been there before for brunch on Sunday, but never for dinner. The Clubhouse is warm and inviting and we ate every meal beside the fireplace – our favourite spot.
We had such a great time at Rowena’s and the Sandpiper Resort – thanks so much for having us!
