Historical Inn Rooms
Time stands still from the moment you catch your breath. Secluded on a 160-acre waterfront estate, Rowena’s Inn on the River is a grand, English-style manor that was converted into a boutique resort. The Inn whispers the historical tale of the Pretty Family evident by furniture exemplifying a timeless stylishness. Conversation pieces, such as the bed of opera singer, Dame Nellie Melba, banister from the original Hotel Vancouver and a dining room table that King George VI and Queen Elizabeth actually sat at are just a few of the stories you’ll hear about. Each inn room has a cedar or river view.
Arriving to a welcome plate of local cheese, fruit and wine, waking up to our signature country breakfast, going on a therapeutic forest stroll, unwinding in the waterfront pool and hot tub, enjoying afternoon tea, or simply surrendering to a rejuvenating spa treatment are just a few of the amenities that are available.
Sandpiper Resort is home to Rowena’s Inn on the River, Sandpiper Golf Course and River’s Edge Restaurant.The Pretty Family’s historical tale traces back to the late 1800s. An English-manor, once the Pretty’s family home, has been converted into a grand B&B blending old-world opulence with new-world convenience. Rowena’s Inn on the River was once BC’s best kept secrets but not anymore.
Sandpiper Golf Course is heralded as one of British Columbia’s leading courses. Framed by the rugged backdrop of the Cheam Mountains, Sandpiper Golf Course is ‘forest golfing’ at its finest with abundant wildlife in two distinctly different environments — the open fairways alongside the turquoise waters of the Harrison River and the quiet serenity amongst the ancient 180 ft. Douglas Firs.
Whether it’s a day of golfing, spending the night at the Inn or taking in the waterfront views at Club House Restaurant, at Sandpiper Resort indulgence is a way of life.
