If you're looking for a stunning place to stay, with a majestic setting of mountains, river, towering trees, and immaculate golf greens, Rowena's Inn is your best bet. The inn itself is wonderfully quaint, with great antiques and a country-estate feel. The room we had was excellent, and we slept really well. The welcome platter with cheese, fruit and wine... More

For what you pay it is definitely not worth it, Breakfast was nothint to brag about either. And to be charged for a pet when there wasn't one in the cabin and to be told by the receptionist that she definitely saw one in our cabin was so unprofessional. The cabin beside us had a dog, receptionist response. "Well you... More

This venue is stunning. Probably hands down the most ideal location for a wedding. For setting it's a definite 10/10. Service on the other hand could have been way better: more professional and basically respectful in some cases. I feel we did not get the value for our money that we expected and we were not treated very well in... More

Hello, Thank you for providing a detailed review. We understand that your wedding was held this past weekend and you have had some time to reflect and share your thoughts. You have mentioned several situations and I don't feel that this is the platform for a long, detailed response. In short. Rowena's takes great pride in being an award-winning wedding... More

Stayed in Nelson's Cabin at the Inn in early spring. It was a restful and inviting cabin with a full stone fireplace and spa like bathroom, jetted tub for 2 and heated floors. Everything about the place makes you want to go back again and again. The natural surroundings, stepping out your door onto a beautiful golf course directly on... More

I feel grateful to the owner for sharing her marvellous house with us. The place is all about beauty, harmony and rest. We enjoyed listening to the birds, looking at the river and the vast green grass in front of it. The staff is very friendly without being artificially so... The food is great...It is peaceful... After only one night... More

My husband and i rented the Nelson cabin for two nights and will definitely be back! The outstanding view from bed, hot breakfast delivered and eaten on our private deck, excellent staff, quiet, and yet close to great activities - loved it!

Booked a last minute getaway, and got the only room available for that night - Ivan's room. Upon entering the Inn, we are greeted by the most lovely grandmother clock, and an easy and friendly check in with Marian (I hope I have her name right). The house décor is so beautiful, we had to wander and explore before heading... More

We were invited to this beautiful location for a wedding in July 2013. The mountains, the river, the Inn, the pool, the golf course, the ribbons fluttering in the breeze from the big tree where underneath the chairs were set up for the wedding, the musician playing background music, contributed to the movie-set feel. After the wedding we were treated... More

We recently spent a Winter Getaway in Rowena's Inn. We had a huge open log cabin with massive beams, large stone fireplace, bathroom with a tub for 2 with jets, heated floors. It is anything but rustic!! The setting is idyllic, on the golf course, with a view of the river. On our walks we saw many eagles. Certainly a... More

We stayed in Phyllis' Cottage over looking a small pond and the golf course. From the front deck you can also see the river unobstructed and this time of year you get to see tons of Bald Eagles. We go out to Rowena's every year but never have stayed over night. The cottage/cabin was clean and very roomy/cozy. Huge bathroom... More

Beautiful review--fair and honest. We love that. We really appreciate that you notice the extra touches, and will be sure to review with all staff. The eagles are lovely and concentrate throughout the winter. Mid December is the peak period in fact. See you again soon! More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Old world opulence blends with new world convenience. Secluded on a 160-acre estate Rowena’s Inn on the River is a grand, English-style manor that was converted into a boutique resort. The rooms offer waterfront or garden views, and sumptuous king-size beds, dressed in deluxe duvets, feather pillows and crisp linens. Large windows bathe the European-infused elegance in natural light, and the furniture exemplifies a timeless stylishness. The cottages have heated-slated floors, deep-soaker jacuzzi tubs for two, glassed-in showers and handcrafted, river rock wood-burning fireplaces.Rowena’s outstanding personalized service and attention to detail is guaranteed with only five rooms in the Inn, a two-bedroom gatehouse and four luxurious cabins. Professional, courteous staff has become an unquestioned hallmark of Rowena’s Inn through a commitment to responsive and attentive service. ... more   less
